The Sandbox is a decentralized virtual world where you may construct and own 3D digital objects in the form of NFT to build and play in the vast metaverse. The project plans to utilize a play-to-earn (P2E) model to help artists, game makers, and players express and monetize their creativity through voxel art.
The Sandbox originated as two mobile games developed by Pixowl, The Sandbox (2012) and The Sandbox Evolution (2016). Both games are 2D sandbox games similar to Terraria.
In early 2018, the developer announced its acquisition by Animoca Brands and revealed its ambitions to create a new blockchain-based, multiplayer, cross-platform 3D sandbox game. They hoped to revolutionize the sandbox gaming industry and disrupt major sandbox games such as Roblox and Minecraft with their NFT and Play-to-Earn model.
