Maze Theory and Pluto Digital other Projects
Maze Theory and Pluto Digital have joined forces on the project. Maze Theory is a well-known game production studio that has attracted industry veterans from well-known global gaming and entertainment companies.
Resurgence, a massively multiplayer role-playing adventure game, will be the first title from the new firm.
Maze Theory is the studio behind a number of well-known games for virtual reality, PC, mobile, and console platforms, including Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins (mobile and console) and Doctor Who: The Edge of Time (VR), with Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom (VR) coming shortly.
The Pluto Digital team includes world-class expertise in blockchain, decentralized finance (DeFi), Metaverse technologies, and non-fungible assets (NFTs).
Pluto DeFi is in charge of developing and nurturing DeFi-themed projects and tokens, while Pluto Metaverse is in charge of developing and nurturing Metaverse-themed projects and tokens.
Pluto V is the company’s venture capital arm, and it invests in Web3 and crypto products all over the world. A team of 16 engineers and professionals backs up Pluto Digital’s work.
Massively Multiplayer RPG – Resurgence is the first game to be released
With its cutting-edge gameplay, polished UX/UI, and revolutionary tokenomic design, Emergent Games’ pioneering first product Resurgence is set to break new ground in on-chain gaming.
It will transport GameFi fans from today’s disaster to the post-apocalyptic future.
Characters in the game fight for survival using one-of-a-kind survival kits and resources.
The “first-mover advantage” of Emergent Games, according to Ian Hambleton, CEO:
Emergent Games has a strong ‘game first’ philosophy which means creating absolutely awesome games for all gamers, with an optional crypto element, enhancing the experience for those interested. We believe this approach is not only the right thing to do, but removes barriers for players moving into blockchain games. Story-living is a term we coined for the concept and technology driving our games. It’s where players are inside a virtual world making meaningful choices that drive the narrative. Bringing this into a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) will offer new and incredible experiences for players and form a significant role in the future of gaming.
The new product release, according to Brian Kinane, Director of Pluto Digital, will be crucial for the entire Web3 segment:
We are tremendously excited to become the largest investor in Maze Theory and partners in the new studio, Emergent Games. We believe the combination of our high end blockchain engineering and token capabilities together with the gaming creativity of the Maze Theory team will create a leading next generation web3 metaverse gaming studio.
As of Q1 2022, Pluto Digital will be the largest VC backing Emergent Games.
