Game Maker Fund Collaborates with The Sandbox to Launch The Valley of Belonging
Game Maker Fund supported by The Sandbox, has released one of the most diverse experiences, "The Valley of Belonging", in The Sandbox.
Game Maker Fund in partnership with The Sandbox has recently launched "The Valley of Belonging," an immersive gaming experience designed exclusively for The Sandbox. The concept of the game is a creation of the Hermit Crab Game Studio in partnership with the People of Crypto.
Let's dive into more details about the experience!
Some Fantastic Features of "The Valley of Belonging"
The gaming experience takes place in a valley where there is no room for hatred, and the concept of equality hits differently. The Valley of Belonging is a diversified community designed solely with the intent of welcoming all ethnicities, disabilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
The Valley city has a Mayor referred to as Evelyn. All citizens of the community including the Mayor work together in harmony to design and develop the valley into a place where people can be honest about their identities and essence, while they also enjoy the liberty of free expression.
Speaking about the gaming experience, Hermit Crab Game Studio said:
“This experience aims to make a movement of change in a space where some people are misrepresented and/or not represented at all, making everyone feel like they belong in the metaverse."
The Goal of the Game
In The Valley of Belonging, players arrive to find out that they will be the host of a Pride Parade. In addition, players are expected to assist in the organization of the Pride Parade by finishing tasks assigned to them by Mayor Evelyn, Finn, Trinity, and other drag queens. Also, 25 collectible items are readily available for players to collect.
The Featured Characters in the Game
In addition to other characters, The Valley of Belonging features two NPCs themed around real-world drag queens, Asia O’Hara and KimChi. These two names are very popular and can be recognized by lovers of the hit reality TV show RuPaul's Drag Race.
The project has also included the addition of NYX Cosmetics, the first cosmetic brand that was incorporated into The Sandbox and also a popular featured partner of RuPaul's Drag Race.
