For Web3 gaming to reach its full potential, accessibility is non-negotiable. This means spending more time highlighting the benefits of Web3, rather than concentrating on the technology itself.
As shown by NBA TopShot, Reddit, and Ticketmaster, breaking into the mainstream requires stripping away most of the crypto jargon and focusing on how their product can please users.
As the classic marketing mantra goes, “people don’t want to buy a quarter-inch drill. They want a quarter-inch hole.”
Now, Metaverse Game Studios is applying the same concept to gaming.
A brainchild of Metaverse Game Studios Inc., Angelic is a dark science fiction-themed RPG packed with narrative, collaboration, and turn-based strategy combat. Players can choose between a single-player story mode or a multiplayer metaverse where they can collaborate with factions and form guilds to establish control over space sectors, collect resources, craft weapons, and more.
Angelic’s ultimate goal? To create a collaborative intellectual property by distributing the ownership, decentralizing the governance and integrating the players further into the game’s universe, and develop an engaging and fair gameplay that ensures that both traditional and web3 gamers can enjoy. By positioning itself as ‘chain agnostic’, with no blockchain components visible to an untrained eye, Angelic focuses solely on delivering the best gaming experience possible for its users.
Built on Unreal Engine 5, Angelic features cinematic-quality visuals and leverages the power of the blockchain to deliver true ownership of the gaming experience to both Web2 and Web3 gamers alike.
Having previously deployed on Solana and Ethereum blockchains, Angelic will now also use ImmutableX’s powerful ZK-rollup technology, which will empower players with full ownership of all in-game assets as fully-carbon neutral NFTs, all while leveraging the security of the Ethereum blockchain. In addition, ImmutableX will bring a seamless user experience and easy onboarding to Angelic players, with speeds of up to9,000 transactions per second and the ability to purchase Angelic assets with all major credit cards.
“I am incredibly excited to have found a partner that shares the same values as Angelic and our community,” said Anastasia Volgemut, Angelic’s Director of Operations. “Ensuring an uninterrupted, quality gaming experience is at the forefront of our priorities and with ImmutableX as our partner, they will now be able to enjoy the benefits of gas-free minting, and fast, secure solutions catered to traditional players.”
While still early in its development, the excitement for the game has been palpable, generating over 170k early access registrations on the website in 27 days.
It isn’t only users who are eager.
In March 2022, Metaverse Game Studios announced the close of a $10 million investment round co-led by Animoca Brands, Pantera Capital and Everyrealm, along with a slew of top blockchain investors. The funding will be used to fuel Angelic’s next stage of growth and continue to deliver a seamless gaming experience to all users.
