Sandbox Release #8: Collision Detection, Running/Racing Demo

Alex J. Champandard on May 23, 2009

The eighth release of the Sandbox brings a host of new technology and systems together, including components within the AI actors, whole modules of the MVC framework and even additional external libraries. The result is a mini-simulation that includes a race on-foot between multiple characters, each avoiding boxes and locomoting between markers in the world. This ties together game logic, simple character AI and the motion planning based on the terrain representation.
