The sandbox genre is so rare that modern games made in this style can be counted on the fingers of one hand. However, there is a real leader in this genre, which can be compared in popularity with all other projects put together. This is an original Swedish development called Entropia Universe. Recall that earlier on the MMOTOP.ORG website this project was mentioned under the name Project Entropia.

Creation of the Entropia Universe

The development of the game was started back in 1995 by the MindArk studio, but only in 2003 the project was born. The result is a rather original MMO universe. The appearance of this game then for the first time showed the effectiveness of the new Real Cash Economy model. It is distinguished by the presence of the in-game currency PED, which, if desired, was easily exchanged for real US dollars. As a result, Entropia Universe has become a huge virtual world where there are many interesting opportunities for surfing the net. Here you can watch movies, listen to music, shopping and so on. At the same time, everything in the game is quite qualitatively presented in the form of an unidentified planet called Calypso, which is to be explored by an ordinary colonist.

Game Features

Entropia Universe offers great opportunities, which are largely tied to real money. That is, in this project you will have the opportunity to make good money on the needs of other users. Subsequently, you can withdraw these funds and then invest in more interesting projects, as well as upgrade your character. To earn money, in Entropia Universe you can buy and sell goods, complete various tasks, transport products, build houses to order, open restaurants and cafes, design, rent out housing and much more. You can even steal real money or cheat in gambling. Now many successful financiers have begun to appear in the game. All this led to the creation of new continents and planets. Also, even representative offices of banks are opened here.

Primary planet Calypso

The main one in the Entropia Universe is Planet Calypso. It is considered the main component of the entire vast game world. There are two continents on the planet called Amethera and Eudoria. In addition, it has two moon satellites and the Crystal Palace space station in orbit. Interestingly, this planet is the first in the Entropia Universe to be completely sold to SEE Virtual Worlds for a hefty sum of $6 million. Thanks to this, this Swedish game immediately got into the Guinness Book of Records in the category of investing real money in virtual projects.

Investing in the game

Also, a big stir was caused by the sale of the royal egg obtained as a result of a special quest. Its price at the auction was 70 thousand dollars. Then there was the story of a mysterious investor who bought part of the gaming territory for more than $2 million. At the same time, the most famous and prominent financier in the Entropia Universe is investor John Jacobs. He has been involved in many major deals and has managed to resell a nightclub, virtual bio-homes, entertainment center and gaming stadium for over $330,000. In addition, MindArk has come up with easier ways to raise small capital. So, by paying $ 100, you can get citizenship of the planet Calypso along with a piece of land and the right to vote on all important issues.

prospects

Today, as part of the Entropia Universe project, they are going to create several more virtual planets. For example, of great interest is Planet Michael, which will be launched with the assistance of the Michael Jackson Foundation. In addition, attention is drawn to the planet Universal Monsters, where you can see virtual monsters created by the legendary film studio Universal. In general, the project clearly has great prospects for development in various directions. Moreover, quite recently Planet Calypso was moved to the most modern graphics platform Cry Engine 2, as a result of which unique things appeared here.

Interestingly, despite the huge cash flows, Entropia Universe is absolutely free to play. However, without the appropriate investment, you are unlikely to achieve any success. So go ahead if you want to become a successful virtual businessman.
