Explanation mentions 'Civilization' for planetary scale, but comic explicitly suggests 'Populous' (which... though memory might fail me, was at least most of a planet in scope, controlled in one of the first popular God Game formats...). And SimSpace might well be Galaxy-level, but 'Alpha Centauri' is itself a game (semi-direct sequel by Sid Meier to Civilization itself), in case anyone thought that this was just a reference to the star(s) in such a galaxy-level simulation. 01:15, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

You can now get Minecraft (which should sate your need for evolutionary sandbox games) for free. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

This is illegal, you know? Sobsz (talk) 00:05, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Not if you have a Raspberry Pi! Minecraft (Pi Edition) is include for free in Raspbian (Although I haven’t tried it, too busy programming various projects with my Pi’s 😝) PotatoGod (talk) 00:24, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
You can also get Minetest, which is free, legal and doesn't require Java. -- Hkmaly (talk) 16:31, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Based on title, I suspect "Cueball's" issue is not the price of game itself, but price of new hardware he would need to play it. -- Hkmaly (talk) 16:31, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
