A Tweet from The Sandbox Marketplace has given Filipinos a reason to cheer about. Different Filipino artists have created a collection of non-player characters (NPCs), famous landmarks like the Rizal Monument, mythological monsters, festival costumes, Philippine native animals like the Philippine Eagle, traditional transportation like the Jeepney and horse carriage (Kalesa) and futuristic platforms for the first Philippines Flagship Game on The Sandbox.
The Sandbox is a community-driven platform where creators can monetize voxel assets and gaming experiences on the blockchain. It is developed by Animoca Brands, a tech company focused on digital entertainment, blockchain, and gamification. Since its funding in early 2019, the play-to-earn has secured remarkable partners, sustained a spot in the top 100 tokens ($SAND), and launched a worldwide alpha test. Ultimately, The Sandbox aims to build a decentralized system where everyone can create and earn through the comfort of the game.
According to Mark Bago, Community Manager and Game Designer of Sandbox Academy, the collection can be found at The Sandbox Shop where game developers can use these NFTs to create their own Filipino themed games within the The Sandbox metaverse. These NFTs can also be used by landowners as land items for added aesthetics to their land plots. NFT traders can also flip these NFT in the marketplace to gain profit. This is one way of introducing the Filipino culture to the metaverse and to encourage more Filipino game designers and developers to create RPG games that are close to the Filipinos heart.
