Reading Candy Box as a Metaphor for Life

Candy Box might seem like a game about nothing more than feeding one man’s endless appetite for sweets, but it’s also about something far more elusive. Just as you begin to think it’s one thing, a new button appears and the entire focus of the game shifts. It’s not a resource game, nor is it a strategy game. It’s a game about change, about learning to deal with unforeseen circumstances. It’s about making apple juice with little more than a basket of oranges and a dream.

In short, Candy Box is a game about life. (Candy Box, PC)
