Kongregate and The Sandbox Unite: Expanding the Bitverse Universe
Kongregate, the renowned web gaming platform creator and innovative blockchain game developer, has announced its plan to expand the fan-favorite Bitverse universe through an exclusive gaming experience in The Sandbox.
As a leading decentralized gaming virtual world and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, The Sandbox will offer access to Kongregate's hub in the new gaming-focused neighbourhood, Voxel Madness. The new experience will be available alongside 11 other popular gaming brands and studios, such as Cut the Rope, Dungeon Siege, and Habbo.
Bitverse Heroes: Enhanced NFT Avatars in The Sandbox Metaverse
Kongregate's Bitverse universe will be extended into the broader web3 metaverse for The Sandbox's extensive gaming audience. Markus Lipp, CEO of Kongregate, envisions a future where gaming experiences are chain agnostic and can be taken anywhere, including exciting new experiences like The Sandbox. Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox expressed excitement about partnering with Kongregate to expand Bitverse into social and creative experiences.
Bitverse Heroes, pixelated NFT avatars connecting all Bitverse series games, will have greater utility in The Sandbox. Kongregate's expanded Bitverse experience will transform these 8-bit avatars into voxelized characters within The Sandbox metaverse.
The Future of Gaming: Seamless Cross-Platform Experiences
The Bitverse comprises a collection of cross-platform free-to-play games connected by a nostalgic pixelated RPG theme. Players can purchase Bitverse Hero NFT avatars and use them as their "heroes" across all games in the collection. Currently, there are three live games within the Bitverse: Bit Heroes Quest, Bit Heroes Runner, and Bit Heroes Arena.
