Seascape at the Game Developers Conference
It’s done! That’s right, the Game Developers Conference which started on the 21st of March has come to an end. There has been fun, there has been discussions, and best of all, there has been hints of the future for different projects. As you would expect, Seascape was in the thick of things, dishing out information about the Play-2-Earn concept and the use cases for NFTs. However, let’s gush a bit about the Game Developers Conference.
To get the best idea of the Game Developers Conference (GDC), you can visit their official webpage. It’s described as “the game industry’s premier professional event, championing game developers and the advancement of their craft. The Game Developers Conference (GDC) brings the game development community together to exchange ideas, solve problems, and shape the future of the industry across five days of education, inspiration, and networking.” Quite a lofty status but this event actually delivers on this description.
The GDC is essentially a congregation of nerds who come together to inspire one another with innovative ideas and to share news about what they are working on with the gaming world. When you hear the word “nerds,” you might think it’s just a gathering of game enthusiasts, but these nerds bring the big guns, with big tech companies like Amazon, Adobe, Unity Technologies, and many others sponsoring! For the game development community, this event is akin to the Grammys, taking place once a year and bringing together people from all walks of life in the gaming industry.
The main topic on everyone’s mouth this year was GameFi, the combination of games and DeFi. For those who are unfamiliar, GameFi attempts to integrate enjoyable gaming experiences with financial elements, making it possible for people to enjoy a simple, straightforward game while earning crypto and NFTs as rewards. People can earn tokens in a blockchain ecosystem that they can sell, buy, or trade with others.
Seascape took part in the discussions, using this chance to support their partner studio, MetaKings, as they unveiled their AAA launch offering Blocklords, as well as putting out the word about their IDO projects and games. The points that Seascape focused on were smart contracts in gaming, NFTs in gaming, and raising seed capital by doing a Lighthouse IDO. As earlier mentioned, the team representing Seascape did a good job of giving the public a taste of what Seascape is all about, even going as far as exploring the future of Play-2-Earn gaming and utilities of NFTs.
The team had case studies and demos of Moonscape, Scape Forum, and Zombie Farm to give out to newcomers to the Seascape universe, as well as tons of Scapes and assistance in setting up their first wallets. A special thanks to the Seascape community members who came out to support the Seascape team at the GDC venue in Golden Gate City, San Francisco. The event was definitely made much more enjoyable by their presence.
Beyond the Game Developers Conference, keep an eye out for more exciting news, as Seascape’s partner studio MetaKings will be releasing their new AAA launch game Blocklords soon, and it is sure to rock the world of Web 3.0 gaming!
