Sims creator reveals Metaverse game details
Will Wright, the game designer behind SimCity and the original Sims announced plans to create a blockchain-powered NFT game titled VOXVerse.
Wright explained what the game will be like in a video published by Gala games on Oct. 20. Voxverse will be a ‘not only gonna be a world for games, but also a place for other games to live. There will be portals to other Gala games,’ said Wright.
He also mentioned users can create Vox avatars in the game. The characters come from an existing line of Gala NFTs, which included licensed tie-ins from Trolls and The Walking Dead.
VOXVerse will be a player-built and run world and its economy will rely on cryptocurrency and the blockchain. Players can buy real estate and mine resources which can then be turned into items for sale.
Wright emphasized that the focus of the game is on building a blockchain world where players can transact in a secure environment.
‘I don't really want to be in the business of selling NFTs," Wright said. ‘I don't care how you do it. I want to have secure transactions for content creators.’
The game is being brought to life with the help of Gallium Studios, a blockchain game studio owned by Wright and Carmen Sandiego co-creator Lauren Elliott, as well as Unity, a cross-platform game engine.
