What is a blockchain gaming multiverse?
A blockchain gaming multiverse is a collective gaming reality created by integrating a collection of blockchain assets with multiple games. In other words, a gaming multiverse is a collaborative gaming project where multiple game developers agree to use the same shared, decentralized database for some (or even all) of their in-game assets. This enables gamers to utilize a multiverse asset in every game that is a part of a specif
The Enjin Multiverse
The Enjin Multiverse is the first blockchain gaming multiverse—ever. It was announced on August 26, 2018, when six games (9Lives Arena, Age of Rust, Bitcoin Hodler, CryptoFights, Forest Knight, and War of Crypta) decided to collaborate and implement the first shared blockchain assets. It has since grown to over 30 games.
A multiverse asset is an in-game blockchain asset that can be used across multiple games. Depending on individual design choices made by game developers, multiverse assets can retain their appearance across games (e.g., a sword in one game is also a sword in another game), or they can change in appearance (e.g., a sword in one game becomes a gun in another). Multiverse assets can have “shared” metadata variables, meaning they can be leveled up. For
A multiverse character is an in-game, player-owned blockchain character that can be used and leveled up across multiple games. The simplest way for game developers to implement multiverse characters is to use a multiverse leveling coefficient—a variable that can accurately measure the overall progress of a player (e.g., total play time). How different games use this variable is up to individual game developers. There are three ways to implement multiverse characters: *Cosmetic Upgrades:
A multiverse quest is a task that spawns across at least two games in the multiverse, which a player-controlled character, party, or group of characters may complete in order to gain a reward. Here are a few interesting examples, from a game design perspective: Loop Quest: An item collected in Game A unlocks a chest in game B; an item collected in the chest in Game B unlocks a dungeon door in Game C; an item collected in Game C’s dungeon leads to a hidden treasure in Game A. **Collect
A multiverse NPC is a non-player character integrated with at least two games. The are two types of multiverse NPCs, based on ownership: Player-Owned: An NPC that is owned by the player (e.g., a pet or sidekick). Autonomous: An experimental type of NPC that owns itself. It owns the keys to its own wallet and the ownership token over the NPC. It can earn and spend blockchain assets to hire other players, trade, or upgrade itself.
