Interconnected Blockchain Games from Illuvium Share NFTs
Illuvium’s co-founder says they are building a series of blockchain games that are interconnected and share NFTs.
Kieran Warwick, co-founder of the blockchain role-playing game Illuvium, has lifted the curtain on a gaming concept he says has never been done before: the interoperable blockchain game (IBG). The IBG is a game that allows players to interact with each other across different blockchain platforms.
As the gaming industry looks to embrace blockchain technology, Illuvium is leading the charge with its innovative approach to game development. By building a series of games that are all interconnected by the blockchain, Illuvium is creating a unique gaming experience that is governed by a single token. This allows for a more interoperable experience that could revolutionize the gaming industry as we know it.
“We're building something that has never been done before not in the mainstream and not in Web3.”
The IBG ecosystem of interconnected blockchain games is an innovative way to enjoy your favorite titles while also earning rewards. By sharing NFTs and a common in-game currency, players can enjoy a truly unique gaming experience while also benefiting from the security and transparency of the blockchain. With more and more games joining the ecosystem, the possibilities are endless – so get in on the action and start earning those rewards today!
It's great to see a company like Illuvium focused on player enjoyment first and foremost. Too many games in the industry are focused on making money first and foremost, and it's great to see a company that puts fun first. I hope that other companies will follow Illuvium's lead, and that the industry as a whole will move away from a focus on making money and towards a focus on making great games.
As the popularity of esports continues to grow, more and more people are becoming interested in playing competitively. For many people, the appeal of esports lies in the fact that it is a skills-based activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds.
“In our genres that we're hitting, there might be roughly 500 million people that we can bring in that literally won't know that they're playing a crypto game.”
I think this is a great idea! I love city building games and I think it would be cool to have a game that combines elements of Sim City and Clash of Clans. I'm excited to see how this game develops and grows!
I think it's great that Overworld is focusing on capturing creatures called "Illuvials." I think this will be a really fun and unique game mechanic that will keep players engaged. I'm also excited about the third game in the series, which will be similar to online battle arena titles. I think this will be a great way to keep players engaged and excited about the game.
It's clear that Warwick has big plans for the future of their game development studio. They want to keep expanding their portfolio of games, and eventually have a total of nine titles under their belt. This is an ambitious goal, but it's one that they seem confident they can achieve.
“Imagine taking one of those assets and then going over to the racetrack and playing a Mario Kart Game, but you're not buying a new Nintendo game, it's just one asset that's usable across an entire universe of games.”
This is an exciting development for gamers everywhere. Illuvium looks to be a truly innovative and immersive gaming experience, and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Warwick seems confident that they can deliver a working beta in the near future, and we hope that they do so sooner rather than later. We'll be keeping a close eye on this one - it could be something special.
I reckon that the open Beta for the game will be sometime early next year. It will have yields and all the aspects that we need, but it won't be fully polished.
The Illuvium DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization that governs the Illuvium network. Warwick said that they originally planned to raise $350 million in funding during the bull market, but the ongoing crypto winter has forced them to scale back to between $10 and $20 million. Despite the challenges, the Illuvium team is committed to building a world-class decentralized platform that will enable users to create, share, and manage their digital assets in a secure and trustless manner.
I'm Warwick, and I made the Australian Financial Review's Young Rich List again this year. Despite current market conditions, I'm still worth a billion dollars. Last year was a great year for me, and I'm hopeful that this year will be just as successful. Thanks for reading!
It's great to see Warwick joking about his motivation to be richer than his brother – it just goes to show that money isn't everything in life! Kain Warwick may have founded Synthetix, but it's clear that Warwick is the one with the better sense of humor. We hope to see both brothers continue to succeed in their respective fields in the years to come.
