The World's First Web3 Game “Gemina Games” created with the “PEGASUS WORLD KIT”
Winner of the Grand Prize at the Web3 Game Pitch Contest “SHAKE! KYOTO”
JP GAMES, Inc. presented “Gemina Games”, a game developed using our original RPG/Metaverse production middleware “PEGASUS WORLD KIT,” at the Web3 game-pitch contest “SHAKE! KYOTO” held yesterday at IVS Crypto 2023 KYOTO and took home the Grand Prize plus three special awards (the double jump.tokyo award, SEGA award and the Well-Link award).
Upgraded PEGASUS WORLD KIT to support Web3
“Gemina Games” is the first Web 3.0-compatible game to be developed with the PEGASUS WORLD KIT ver1.5, which was revealed at UNREAL FEST 2023 TOKYO on June 2. PWK1.5 will incorporate new game experiences and functions such as the “RPG System” and the “Creator Economy System.”
Enhancing the Web3 game experience significantly, which has been a challenge in the past
“Gemina Games” offers a new RPG experience based on a full-fledged online RPG, supporting token-bound accounts with the new ERC-6551 standard that greatly enhances the functionality of NFTs. Users can improve the value of their assets by progressing through the game, developing their characters, and accumulating competitive achievements. In addition, each rival country in the game is managed autonomously by a DAO (Distributed Autonomous Organization), and players can earn more returns and rights (Contribute to Earn) by contributing to their own country. Focusing on the game experience, which has been a challenge for Web3 games, we aim to create an RPG that is both fun as a game while still being in the Web3 domain.
From JP Games, Jin Matsumoto, our Web3 producer, took the stage to give our presentation. We hope that this award will provide an opportunity for Gemina Games and the PEGASUS WORLD KIT ver1.5 to become popular among a wider range of people.
