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: Any progress made in games is purely cosmetic, in the form of character and item “skins.”
- Minor Benefits: Progress made across games is reflected with minor benefits, such as more item slots or other perks that don’t break in-game balance.
- Real Progression: Progress made across games is reflected in tangible advantages (e.g., a character’s in-game level is equal to the character’s multiverse level).
