    It isn't a game, it's a toy, and it's still very beta so it's not completely done. The whole point is ... to play with sand. And various other substances (water, oil, salt, etc.) and tools (fire, plants, platforms, etc.)

    It's a zen thing. Just something to play with.

    You see? It took you two hours before you finally put it down for not being able to discern a point. Further proof that it's so enjoyable that you'll waste boatloads of time on it and you won't even know why.

    Seriously. I don't think that I've ever had that much fun playing with computerized sand (or ever played with computerized sand... but that's apart from the matter).

    I still have no idea why it is so fun... it just... is.

    Yeah. I've played with numberous variants, both Flash and PC-based. I've no idea why I keep seeking them out, there's just something pointlessly cerebral about something like this that serves no real purpose other than to let you kinda relax and keep busy without actually doing anything.
