The upcoming virtual world The Sandbox has created so-called Discord Hunts to active the community and learn more about their project. By completing these hunts, community members can win NFT rewards. Gamers can find each of these hunts on the official Discord server.
Each of these hunts consist out of a couple of social media actions and questions that need answering. Upon completion of the form, and in case you’ve provided the right answers, winners will receive an e-mail to claim the NFT prize. The Sandbox is planning these community hunts on Discord every two weeks.
These community hunts don’t come at a surprising time. The Sandbox is getting ready to launch Season 0 of its virtual world. The pre-launch event will feature a limited amount of game experiences, which will unlock over a period of time. Season 0 will only be accessible by landowners, but might open up to more gamers along the way.
What happens after Season 0?
The Sandbox will close again after the Pre-Season 0 event. However, when Season 1 launches The Sandbox will be a complete product. This means that the virtual world offers permanent progression, daily quests, loot, levels, experience points, and a consistent cycle of new content done by The Sand box and users.
In a couple of years from now The Sandbox will hardly be making content for their virtual world. It’s likely that most of the content will come from gamers who made their own games. But let’s first wait for January 2021 as we expect more details on that Pre-Season 0 Event.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. The virtual world of The Sandbox consists out of lands, and voxels fill up each of those lands. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.
The Sandbox is providing free tools for developers, gamers and content creators. Creators can use VoxEdit to make objects. In addition the Game Maker allows users to create interactivity on their virtual land. The Sandbox will also create a meta gaming experience. Players can for example do daily quests or weekly quests for their guild. This will earn players SAND, which they can sell or use to buy in-game items or virtual land.
Over the past twelve months The Sandbox has been setting up all kinds of partnerships. Think about Care Bears, The Smurfs and Atari. In addition they’ve created a game fund to stimulate developers to create unique games within The Sandbox. Hack The Tao, Mushroom Mania, Planet Rift and Dethrone are some of these indie games.
