Popular blockchain-based mobile game Spells of Genesis has taken the next step in its metaverse push by joining Web 3.0 giant The Sandbox. The linkup will allow players to come face-to-face with their favourite in-game characters, unlocking a new wave of interactivity between visitors and otherwise static characters, uncharted game worlds and more. The first iteration of the partnership will be Spells of Genesis – Askian Door, which will foster this heightened level of interaction as well as introducing hidden collectibles, an NFT collection and other benefits.
Metaverse move expands Spells of Genesis universe
Spells of Genesis was the world’s first blockchain-based mobile game and has attracted a loyal following. The move into the metaverse though Askian Door will allow the social aspect of the game to take centre stage, with players able to gather at the entrance to Askian where they can interact with some of the game’s most iconic characters for the first time.
Another exciting feature of Askian Door is the ability to collect hidden Satoshi Blocks spread across the Spells of Genesis metaverse, which encourages players to explore spots of interest, all of which have strong ties to the game.
NFT collection returns, with new additions
The benefits of The Sandbox tie-in don’t stop there, with the great news that the iconic Spells of Genesis NFT collection will return to The Sandbox Marketplace, sporting 10 brand new NFTs to add to the existing collection. This is a significant development as it allows both past and future participants in Spells of Genesis drops the chance to win an Alpha Pass to The Sandbox Alpha Season 3, a 10-week event spanning over 90 different experiences.
The passes are designed by The Sandbox and unlock rewards of up to 500 $SAND for those who accomplish quests within the Alpha Season 3. There are a total of 10,000 Alpha Passes available, with guaranteed rewards for Season 3 Alpha pass holders on top of the $SAND token giveaway. Anyone buying a Spells of Genesis NFT will be entered into the hat to win one of these sought after passes.
Spells of Genesis creator EverdreamSoft will also be giving away Alpha Season 3 passes through its official Twitter account, with more information being announced via the EverdreamSoft and Spells of Genesis accounts in the coming weeks.
Exclusive access to future experiences
EverdreamSoft is clearly keen on integrating NFTs into the Spells of Genesis universe, with the studio also revealing that every individual who owns an NFT from the Spells of Genesis collection on The Sandbox Marketplace will have exclusive access to all future Spells of Genesis experiences within The Sandbox.
This move is an example of the Spells of Genesis team’s desire to bring long-term utility to the NFTs it creates to ensure optimal interactive benefits to community members.
EverdreamSoft planning further metaverse experiences
EverdreamSoft owns an estate of 6×6 land plots in The Sandbox, with the Spells of Genesis – Askian Door social hub taking up just one of these. This frees up the other plots to host further experiences in the coming months and years, with EverdreamSoft keen to build on the support for the game, which they hope will only grow with the new The Sandbox partnership.
The Sandbox community members had the opportunity to buy a digital real estate land around the EverdreamSoft Estate in February this year, with buyers receiving three premium NFTs including the Spells of Genesis’ iconic Bearwhale. The EverdreamSoft team also dropped Spells of Genesis NFTs back in April through a collaboration with the talented artists from Nabiya studio, with the series of 14 voxelized NFTs available to be purchased by eligible community members.
EverdreamSoft was founded in 2010 as a game studio, pivoting to focus on the integration of blockchain into the gaming world in 2014 and pioneering the use of digital collectibles within it. The company is one the founding members of Blockchain Game Alliance, which was founded in 2018.
