4,300 users explore the Otherside
other side, the long-awaited metaverse developed by Yuga Labs, has briefly opened its doors. Indeed, some 4,300 users were able to access a demo game on Saturday, July 16.
This demo took them to an area called “Biogenic Swamp” which forms the center of the world of Otherside. It is also in this area that holders of Otherdeeds plots of land will be able to find their land.
In practice, only the holders from NFT Yuga Labs, namely the Bored ApesMutant Apes and other Otherdeeds were able to participate in this demo.
A few hours after the demo, Yuga Labs unveiled the light paper of the project. This aspires to “communicate and explain the principles of the platform, the capabilities of its developers and the possibilities of community co-creation”.
According to the light paper, Yuga Labs intends to involve the community in the creation of its metaverse:
“We want to encourage, empower and recognize the expression, creativity and ingenuity of the community of Otherside contributors. »
To do this, Yuga Labs has developed a development kit. Effectively, theOtherside Development Kit allows developers to participate in the creation of Otherside:
“Developers and travelers will be able to get their hands dirty using and providing feedback on software development kits (SDKs). More casual players will be able to use the game’s building tools to their delight. »
For example, developers and artists can create objects in Otherside, following Open Object standards. These make it possible to make interoperable objects created both on Otherside and on other metaverses respecting this standard.
Voyager Journey: The First Story Arc
Beyond the technique, this light paper allows us to glean some additional information on the universe of Otherside.
In fact, Yuga Labs unveiled the first narrative arc of its game, titled “Traveling Journey” :
“This is a narrative gaming experience that will introduce and educate players on the fundamentals of participating in Otherside. »
In addition, all participants in these stages will be eligible Has additional incentives related to Otherside. Obviously, Saturday’s demo was the first of those steps.
First, this narrative journey will take place through several technical demonstrations. This allows both players to discover the game and developers to identify the limits of their technology.
This first story arc will be followed by 10 more bows already imagined by Yuga Labs. Details of these additional arcs will be revealed over time.
A technological feat
To achieve its metaverse, Yuga Labs has partnered with the project Unlikely to take advantage of its M² technology. This technology makes it possible to bring together more than 10,000 participants simultaneously with customizable avatars.
