Fireworks Simulator Goes To Show You Can Make A Sim Of Just About Anything

I won't pretend to understand the wide appeal of the various esoteric simulator games that have popped up in recent times. Everything from farming and trucks to, well, goats is now catered for in this lovely reality we live in. The only thing missing? Fireworks, obviously. And they're cracking good fun, so why not have a game that lets you fire explosive prettiness into the sky... or simulate the experience, at least?

Created by German outfit Reality Twist, Fireworks Simulator is exactly what it says on the tin. Exactly. It's even "developed in cooperation with certified pyrotechnicians", as the trailer boldly exclaims. It offers a sandbox to build your displays, which you can record and share from "up to six different camera angles".

I wish I knew a bit more about the technicalities of fireworks to give this a fair assessment, but what I can say is that it is rather pretty to watch. And with 100 "authentic" effects at your beck and call, I'm sure you can have a crack at doing your own version of New Years. A better version.

It's currently available on Steam for 15 per cent off, or $US8.49 in freedom dollars.

    I think rock simulator proved this. Fireworks Simulator I could actually see having a (small) place.

      My exact thoughts when I read the headline of this article.

    Boom Boom Rocket?


    The main problem I have with this is they are charging money....I mean I remember back in the day people used to make silly shit, kinda like this and it would be free. If it isn't free then it should be really cheap. I don't see why is should be so expensive for what little it does.Hopefully simulators will turn into Minecraft, PewDiePie or Slender games. It will eventually be over done and everyone will hate it for the fact that everyone else hates it. I thought we were already finished with Simulators when we had things like, Rock Simulator and Grass Simulator.

    That's just the way I see it

    People have been doing this for years, under a different piece of software:

    Bonus fact: You can also make Roller Coasters with this game, and become a Roller Coaster Tycoon.
