Hong Kong Walker: Kowloon Walled City is one of the projects supported by The Sandbox’s Game Maker Fund. Learn more about this exciting game that is exclusive to The Sandbox metaverse. It will be available to play in The Sandbox’s Alpha Season 3.
Venture into one of the most iconic locations of 1970s Hong Kong — Kowloon Walled City. Indulge yourself in an RPG-style, immersive, and nostalgic experience in a replica of the Kowloon Walled City.
You will play the main protagonist, Lui Gor, a debt ridden gambler whose girlfriend was captured and brought into the sinned gutter. Lui’s creditors infest the City, and he must navigate through them to get to the love of his life.
The player needs to navigate through several different challenges in the walled city in order to save the love of their life. There are gangsters to defeat, challenging puzzles to solve, a parkour course to cross, and more.
Each completed challenge will reward players with coins, which all need to be collected to unlock and complete the final mission in the game.
“Though Kowloon Walled City has disappeared today, many people from Hong Kong, or around the world, liked the city, and you can see many modern films using it as the background. Players will enjoy the scenes in our game based on the real-life Kowloon Walled City. Also, the game we have designed is amazing and interesting, you will love it!” — Index Game Studio
Let’s take a peek into the Kowloon Walled City.
Let’s check out just some of the assets and NPCs in the experience, too.
“Everything you can think of, you can build it in The Sandbox. Don’t hesitate in your ability, try to build your own metaverse!” — Index Game Studio
Hong Kong Walker: Kowloon Walled City is designed and developed by Index Game.
Here’s what they had to say.
Index game is a Hong Kong-based metaverse gaming studio, and the first Hong Kong-based Studio to build experiences for The Sandbox’s decentralized Metaverse. We make games and social hubs in The Sandbox, and aim to create immersive and unique experiences for different projects.
This is the first game we ever made in The Sandbox. We enjoy the creative part of this project, because we can build what we want in The Sandbox. Like rebuilding the famous Kowloon Walled City. We are so excited that we have got this opportunity to participate in this great metaverse.
This project was developed with The Sandbox Game Maker and VoxEdit. They are nice tools that allow us to develop Kowloon Walled City intuitively. The Game Maker is easy to learn even for a non-coding background person. It doesn’t require any codes to make games. Instead, there are different behaviors and components that can be applied to the objects and assets put on the map.
