Fans of the popular animated series, Invincible, are in for a treat. The show will debut on The Sandbox, a leading metaverse platform. The announcement of this collaboration came from a statement released by The Sandbox on January 31, 2023, which coincides with the original comic series' 20th anniversary. The virtual gaming experience is part of a partnership with Skybound Entertainment, the company behind the franchise.
Invincible, written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, first debuted in 2003 and quickly became a critical success. The comic book ran for 144 issues over its 15-year run, spawning multiple spin-off series. The animated TV show, which launched on Amazon Prime Video in 2021, was a big hit with fans and remains a popular streaming series to this day. The show follows the story of Mark Grayson, a teenager with superhuman strength, and his journey as a developing superhero.
Skybound and The Sandbox have a history of collaboration, with Invincible being featured in the original 2D pixel mobile version of The Sandbox in 2014. In 2022, the duo worked together again, bringing The Walking Dead franchise to life in Alpha Season 3 of The Sandbox. Those who participated in the Alpha S3 would have come across the popular "A Day in Alexandria" and "Stay Alive" experiences.
Details on the latest project are scarce, but users can expect to follow Mark Grayson, the main character, as he navigates the changing world. The Sandbox has always been at the forefront of the metaverse revolution, and this latest partnership is a testament to its commitment to providing users with immersive and exciting virtual experiences. Fans of Invincible are sure to be thrilled at the prospect of stepping into the world of their favorite superhero.
