Two more games added to Enjin Multiverse
Enjin Coin continues its mission to drive the blockchain gaming space towards new possibilities by signing up Vrainiac Studio’s Born to the Sky and Helihunter games.
If you haven’t caught wind of the Enjin Multiverse yet, it’s an intriguing new concept driven by the rise of blockchain gaming and true item ownership. We’ve previously covered the Enjin Multiverse in detail, but as a broad overview, it’s a partnership between multiple developers that are all building games using the Enjin Coin software development kit (SDK).
The Enjin Coin SDK works with the Unity and Unreal Engines and allows developers with little or no blockchain coding knowledge to create games that use blockchain technology. The benefits of blockchain being decentralised servers, true item ownership, provable scarcity of items and among many other things, a way for players to monetise their time investment into video games.
As all the games using the Enjin engine are talking the same language, it’s possible for items, characters and more to be compatible across the titles. This is what the Enjin Multiverse is experimenting with.
A likeminded example would be if your favourite gun in Gears of War was able to work in Mass Effect, because both games are built on Unreal Engine. That hypothetical situation is made possible by the use of blockchain as seen in the Enjin SDK.
We encourage you to watch the GxB video at the top of this page, where the CEO of developer Touchhour talks about how the Enjin Multiverse will work with his title, 9Lives Arena.
Vrainiac Studio announces two games for Enjin Multiverse
Vrainiac Studio has just announced it is incorporating the Enjin SDK into its two upcoming games. Made of experienced AAA developers who have worked on titles like Call of Duty, Battlefield and Guitar Hero, Vrainiac is focusing on delivering high-end VR video games.
The first title is Born to the Sky, which is a virtual reality wingsuit racing game. Unfolding in real-world cities such as New York, Paris and Hong Kong, the game is looking sharp for a VR title. It’s an arcade racer, with boost and high scores at the forefront and will be free-to-play. There will be a host of cosmetic enhancements (like Fortnite), all of which are saved on the blockchain.
We have footage of the game and a stack more info in the latest episode of GxB, which can be viewed at the top of this page. (Or you can jump direct to the segment here). Born to the Sky is coming to mobile devices, such as Daydream and Samsung Gear VR, in 2019.
The second game is called Helihunter. It’s described as being more for casual players and is an augmented reality shooter experience, played from a first-person perspective while sitting in the pilot seat of a helicopter. Zombies are attacking the city and your job will be to protect mankind from the air. A demo is out now for mobiles and this is a title all about the high scores.
