What is The Sandbox Game Maker?
Game Maker (by The Sandbox) is a no-code development suite to create 3D games on the blockchain. Everyone can participate and ship fully-functional, multiplayer games to enjoy in the metaverse.
Taking inspiration from Roblox and Minecraft, Game Maker aims to bring game development to the masses and democratise the creation process.
Right now, only a very small percentage of people can code a game that works on the blockchain, allows to use your NFTs inside of it, and has a community to test and improve it. Thanks to Game Maker, you have an all-in-one toolkit to bring your dream game to life.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the most promising blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development.
The Sandbox consists of customizable lands with voxel-based entities. 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.
They quickly became one of the fastest-growing Metaverses, and their social media channels amass millions of interactions per month. All assets and land sales are breaking records, and they keep rolling new features on a consistent basis.
