Candy Box is a role-playing browser video game featuring ASCII art.

Development[edit]

The game was developed over a period of two months by indie game developer "aniwey",[2] a 19-year old student from Caen, France, and released in April 2013. A sequel was released on October 24, 2013.

Gameplay[edit]

The game revolves around candies, which players begin to receive at a rate of one per second; however this number may increase with further gameplay. Gameplay appears very sparse initially, but options appear as the player performs actions.[2] For example, candy can be eaten or used to purchase items.[3] Players can also undertake quests and kill monsters in order to gain candy. By performing quests, the player obtains items which can be accessed in their inventory.

Reception[edit]

Kotaku noted that "Candy Box's curious combination of ASCII 'graphics', role-playing elements and resource management has caught on with hundreds of thousands."[4] According to Mashable, the "charming ASCII art style belies a very deep game that can quickly get addictive".[5]
