Softstar enters The Sandbox metaverse
Classic Chinese game characters to thrive in “Softstar MetaPark”
Softstar Entertainment Inc. (Softstar), an iconic Taiwanese brand of classic PC games, is partnering with The Sandbox. Softstar will purchase a parcel of virtual lands in the metaverse to build the Softstar MetaPark, where a myriad of stories — both traditional and futuristic — will be introduced to the web 3.0 ecosystem.
Players in The Sandbox will be treated to a wide range of experiences from eastern fantasy about legendary wuxia (martial heroes) to the pursuit of a billion dollars in modern day riches. Popular classic characters from Softstar’s back catalog, including Li Xiaoyao, Zhao Ling’er and Lin Yueru from The Legend of Sword and Fairy series, and Sun Xiaomei, Jin Beibei and Atubo from Richman series, will be ready to accompany fans during their adventures.
Softstar’s decision to join The Sandbox is warmly welcomed because it represents an important step for a traditional games publisher and underscores the accelerated growth that web 3.0 and the metaverse is enjoying in this new era.
All players and creators in The Sandbox will soon be able to display and utilize in-game assets and Intellectual Property (IP) created by Softstar in the form of original game experiences that are developed as NFTs.

“We are thrilled that Softstar is now partnering with The Sandbox. As the gaming industry increasingly embraces web 3.0, many traditional games companies are establishing their presence in the metaverse. We look forward to watching Softstar’s development in the decentralized, virtual world of The Sandbox, where memorable stories can vividly come alive in a highly creative environment. The long-standing success that Softstar has enjoyed will undoubtedly encourage fans and players to create even more original gaming experiences,” said Sebastien Borget, Co-Founder and COO of The Sandbox.
Softstar is also partnering with Lululand, a metaverse studio, and TW The Sandbox Creator Club (TWCC), a Taiwanese creator community, to host its very first web 3.0 exhibition in A Love is Forever, an immersive experience built by Lululand in Alpha Season 3. In addition to showcasing classic Softstar characters and memorable stories, the exhibition will feature a preview of the brand’s on-going work in The Sandbox.
