An online hackathon dedicated to the development of Maff city objects for The Sandbox metaverse. We brought together voxel 3D designers, Game developers and Game designers
Throughout the week, the teams created objects for the virtual Maff City.
6 objects were developed : • Team Inception - a futuristic apartments; • Team Space Pirates - an educational center; • Team MultiMetaMakers - a conference venue; • Team Meta ZK - a museum; • Team Stars in hands - an office of the future; • Team NovoVerse - a concert venue.
Inception team - futuristic apartments
The futuristic “MAFF metaverse ground hall apartment” is located on the territory of a picturesque island levitating in the atmosphere. The interior and exterior are designed in high-tech style. The apartment has a large public lounge area. A green high-tech paradise island, fully controlled by , which has a holographic shell as an interactive interface, but does not have its own physical body, it has a fleet of drone robots at its disposal to help it carry out both services apartments, and the continuous process of life support for the entire island as a whole. Previously, there is every reason to believe that a cyber virus has made its way into the island’s management system, causing malfunctions in the infrastructure and the behavior of drone robots. The player needs to help the AI troubleshoot by completing a series of quests, but in the process, it gradually comes to the realization that the true source of the constantly occurring system failures is something else, and behind this lies a terrible secret.
Team Space Pirates - Educational Center
A gamified learning hub with game mechanics that includes an interactive learning process, problem solving and small battles to get emotions and variety in the learning process. The interactivity of the object includes: small fights, interactive sources of interaction with questions with the correct answer, making it possible to go further. Gamification in all three locations follows the "Adventure and Puzzle" model with slight variations. An element of racing can be added - passing tasks for speed, or confrontation - for emotional involvement in the study of historical plots.
MultiMetaMakers team - conference platform
Conferences are the place where new knowledge is born. However, the venues for their holding have remained unchanged in form for many years. We present a new format of conferences. His concept includes four elements - earth, fire, water, air. Moving from one to another, the participant gets acquainted with the information presented in different ways: looking for an artifact among other items, joining the battle in the debate zone, collecting pearls in the depths of the sea, answering questions. After completing all the quests, the player receives not only new knowledge, but a gift from the conference organizer. Gamification of this format allows, on the one hand, to better convey your work to guests, on the other hand, visitors who become active participants absorb information better.
Team Meta ZK - museum
We found it interesting to create an interactive museum in the metaverse of The Sandbox, which has 4 key locations where users complete tasks, collect various information and find cool Easter eggs.
Stars in hands team - office of the future
We have looked into the future not only of the office, but also into the short-term future of the Sandbox. The office located on a hard cloud hosts all the guests of the metaverse in a multi-user experience, the company holds events, meetings, concerts in this location, sells subscriptions to its services, NFTs from partners and physical goods that can be ordered at home.
NovoVerse team - concert venue
We developed the concept of a concert venue where players can complete quests, explore a map full of easter eggs, find hidden objects, have fun with friends, attend concerts by real artists, enjoy NFT art at a local art gallery, dance at a local club, do parkour, eat a cafe for business meetings, a VIP zone for guests, which will allow you to watch the concert from above. On the map, you will find a store selling clothes and character skins, as well as a store with fan merchandise and accessories dedicated to the event. You can also brighten up the time in the local labyrinth with a duck, it replaces the once great minotaur, who is now on vacation. Try to find a dungeon with the most unexpected references to famous films, or climb up to the top of the concert venue and watch the hustle and bustle below. You can visit the dressing room of the artists, and NPC visitors to the site add atmosphere to the event and create the feeling of a never ending party.
