MetaGravity Studio: Introduction
Building Living Worlds
What is MetaGravity?
MetaGravity is both a blockchain game studio and the ‘virtual 3D engine’ powering the decentralised Metaverse. The studio or creative arm of MetaGravity is focused on building create-to-earn blockchain games while pushing the boundaries of what is possible with NFTs and virtual crypto-economies.
What Are We Building?
The foundation of MetaGravity is the decentralized ‘engine’ that enables the next generation of Metaverse applications. In parallel, MetaGravity Studio is developing Edge of Chaos — a persistent MMO and fantasy Metaverse.
It’s the game we have always dreamed of playing, which plunges you alongside millions of others into a dynamic living world that is vibrant and everchanging. As a player, you help settle the wilderness and forge civilisation against the onslaught of Nature, at the very edge of the pervading darkness. Edge of Chaos will feature a player-driven economy on the blockchain, built on digital currencies (resources) and craftable NFT assets (items, gear, buildings).
Alongside our core developments, we’re constantly researching and experimenting to push state-of-the-art of NFT technology. Our genesis project is Pangenesis which brings ownable ‘living NFTs’ (artificial algorithmic life) to the blockchain. ‘Pangens’ are driven by fragments of “DNA” that unfurl, self-assemble, grow and replicate! This moves us beyond the current view of NFTs as mere images as the NFT ‘generates’ its own visual appearance. When placed in a virtual environment, it self-determines how it will interact with that world! The name Pangenesis derives from an 18th-century concept for the wellspring of Life.
Who We Are
Rashid, CEO of MetaGravity, spent 16 years in R&D and concept development to build an MMO game with a persistent ‘living’ world and a real player-driven economy. He has a research background in chaos theory and complex systems and has spent much of his life experimenting with artificial life. He later founded the cloud/gaming deep-tech company Hadean, pioneering an engine that has scaled to tens of thousands of players at big industry events such as GDC, in collaboration with studio partners such as CCP Games (Eve Online) and Mojang (Minecraft).
The rest of the core team has decades of experience working with AAA studios, building IP and games, and more recently in blockchain and NFTs. Our Art Director, Sanjin has worked on incredible gaming IPs such as Games Workshop and Wizards Of the Coast. Our NFT specialist Riaz spent years pioneering blockchain projects for enterprise companies in D.C. before moving into the consumer world and driving NFT/crypto projects to hundred-million-dollar market caps. Our Technical Artist, Nabil, and Lead Game Programmer, Krystian have worked across virtually every games industry technology of note and contributed to several shipped titles in the RPG, RTS and MOBA genres.
We are always on the lookout for talented and motivated individuals who want to bring our rich blockchain Metaverse game to life, so please get in touch if this excites you!
