What you need to know about The Sandbox and Habbo partnership
According to the announcement, this will allow The Sandbox and Habbo communities to come together and create their own experiences within the virtual world.
The iconic Habbo Hotel and its receptionist Frank - one of the classic characters in the game - will be featured in this playable experience. At launch, players can help Frank to manage the resort and reminisce nostalgic moments in the hotel by completing a list of engaging tasks.
The experience will allow players to learn more about Habbo's universe and history while growing its narrative with new events and game plots. Through this collab, Habbo will further expand its presence in Web3, which began with Habbo X, an NFT version of the classic online social game.
"In many ways, Habbo has laid the foundation of a social virtual world where over 300 million avatars connect around social experiences over two decades," said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox.
He added: "We're thrilled to partner with them and build experiences in The Sandbox to empower their community with our no-code Game Maker. This will enable the creation of more User-Generated Content and foster interoperability, showcasing the true potential of the open metaverse and Web3."
Developed by Sulake, Habbo Hotel is a popular game that took the world by storm in the early 2000s. After 2010, it went through a long hiatus before Azerion acquired Sulake - switching its growth strategy to focus on Web3 and the metaverse.
"The Sandbox has done a phenomenal job of pushing the envelope in Web3, building a strong community and a star-studded list of partners," said Jurriaan van Teunenbroek, Vice President of Games and Content at Azerion. "We are very excited to work with The Sandbox in our own Web3 journey to expand the metaverse through interoperability and collaboration."
