Hello and welcome to our latest edition of
A Week, A Creator
Small tip before you read this one, grab a snack or suffer the consequences! Don’t say I didn't warn you.
Before we go into further into this experience, let’s learn more about its creator:
“Hi, I'm Benji, an artist in general, I've worked from designing toys to clothes, but mainly in video games, several video games. I've been working on The Sandbox since it was a pixel art game; and this is my first opportunity to design a level inside it. I always liked the food stages in video games, these are a classic, and The Sandbox should have one too. That's how the idea of Sweet Village began; a colourful platform that will make you hungry.”
My stomach is already grumbling as I stare at this yummy logo! Sweet tooth activated for this colourful game experience created by our talented creator Nicolás Benjiro. Grab your bag of sugary sweets and let’s discover this new game experience.
Somewhere in the metaverse, there is a town made of sweets and desserts, on a giant sponge cake, with chocolate roads and a population just as sweet. But this colourful village has one problem; a problem that only one person can solve.
This is Rex.
How did Rex get into this candy world? Who knows, maybe he ate too many and showed up here. Whatever the reason for his arrival, it appears that he is the only hope for the candy village.
The village’s problem is the constant siege of the minions of Halloween Town, who try to steal their most precious item: the Star Candy.
There are two objectives to complete in this game:
Recover all the Star Candy
Find the hiding place of the pumpkins to end this threat forever.
Candies are located in areas around the city, which will require the player to use their jumping and moving skills to reach them.
By finding the pumpkin tunnel, the game becomes a cave exploration where you will encounter enemies that you’ll have to fight. Who knows what else is lurking in the shadows…
There are currently 10 Star Candy to collect and 20 enemies to kill. As the game grows bigger and the story arc develops more missions and objectives could be included.
I hope you are as excited as I am to discover more about the Candy Village and its habitants. In the meantime we’ll have to settle for these renderings of the game experience:
I’m salivating only watching this, so I’m not sure what will happen when I’ll actually play that experience… I guess we’ll find out soon enough 🍬🍭
Next week we will dive into a completely different type of game experience, so keep an eye out for the next edition!
