The Sandbox has announced a partnership with Voxodeus, which means that all 6,313 Voxodeus NFTs will be playable inside their virtual world. The Voxodeus NFT collection consists out of five different voxelized species, ranging from robots to godlike creatures. These come in four factions and in three different rarities.
There are plans for games in The Sandbox based on the lore of Voxodeus, but that’s future talk. More solid are the plans to allow owners of the Voxos to bring their characters into The Sandbox. The developers behind the virtual world is firstly bringing all 32 archetypes of Voxodeus into The Sandbox. That means there will be small changes to the designs, allowing for example all characters to properly hold a sword.
Any Voxos bought before May 10th will receive a replica of the original VoxoCube inside The Sandbox. This will be a reward on top of the existing Voxodeus character NFT. Both The Sandbox and Voxodeus see their collaboration as an effort to make collectible NFTs enter the 3D space.
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 voxel 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. Owning land in The Sandbox will allow users to monetize it. They can create and publish games, open virtual shops or organize events.
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. We’re sure co-founder Sebastien Borget has more surprises up his sleeve in the coming months.
