During the recent Korea Blockchain Week, Planetarium Labs, a company recognized for creating community-driven Web3 gaming experiences, showcased two promising titles at the Web3 Game ‘Unplugged’ event. This event, co-hosted by Animoca Brands and Intella X, became a platform where gaming enthusiasts got a glimpse of what’s next in the decentralized gaming arena. Here, we look into the game announcements made by Planetarium Labs who have already achieved huge success with Nine Chronicles.
Verse8: A New RPG Experience
First off, Planetarium Labs introduced the gaming community to Verse8. This decentralized roguelike RPG protocol is open-source and modifiable. This new venture shows the evolving narrative of online RPGs, offering a blend of multiplayer experiences, gaming communities, and virtual economies.
Verse8 is not just a game but a universe equipped with tools for world generation, distribution, and monetization, allowing creators to launch and evolve their virtual worlds. Furthermore, creators can utilize community hubs to engage with users, market their products, and collaborate with other brands and players, establishing a vibrant nexus of gaming experiences and opportunities.
JC Kim, the Co-Founder and CEO of Planetarium, couldn’t contain his enthusiasm about the developments. He remarked, “Over 1,000 passionate Web3 builders registered for our event, underscoring the growing momentum and interest surrounding decentralized gaming. We’re extremely excited to announce our upcoming titles and aim to make a significant impact in the Web3 gaming scene in 2024.”
Immortal Rising 2: Elevating the Idle RPG Genre
Next up, attendees were treated to previews of Immortal Rising 2, a competitive idle RPG game expected to surpass the achievements of its predecessor, Immortal Rising 1, which had garnered over $15 million in revenue from the Korean market alone.
The sequel promises not only to retain the dynamic and stylish gameplay of the original but also to introduce improvements in user experience, such as the transition to a quarter-view during gameplay. What sets it apart is the incorporation of Web3 elements, including self-balancing tokenomics and a guild warfare system that grants top guilds the authority to influence in-game resources and rewards significantly.
Sharing his excitement about the project, Alan Lau, Chief Business Officer of Animoca Brands, stated, “Immortal Rising 2 is tangible proof of what we can do when passion, innovation, and collaboration come together. We are entering a new era defined by collaboration, immersive gameplay, and community-driven content, and Animoca Brands is thrilled to be actively engaged in this pivotal phase of the blockchain gaming revolution.”
As we witness the unveiling of these promising titles, it’s clear that Planetarium Labs can help redefine the industry norms, setting new benchmarks in the Web3 gaming landscape. With an eye on community engagement and innovation, the company embarks on a journey to address longstanding expectations and potentially transform the future of gaming.
