SEOUL, KOREA, Aug. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Iskra spoke at Korea Blockchain Week, outlining his vision for game publishing in the Web3 era. “The technology is now available to us to provide an ecosystem that enables better outcomes for everyone: gamers, game developers, and the platform itself. There is now an opportunity for every stakeholder ( especially gamers) to share in the overall value created by the game experience: from ownership of digital assets, development of fandoms to overall community participation,” says Ben Colayco, Global Managing Director of Iskra.
Iskra plans to distribute up to 100% of all platform fees to each stakeholder, based on their participation. Participation is determined by Iskra’s Community Ranking System which measures everything from running an Iskra Network Node (Pioneer NFT), staking the Iskra Native Token (ISK), to simply use of platform services. This form of Game Publishing for Web3 includes gamers as stakeholders from the start, creating a dynamic where they are no longer the main source of revenue and now share in the overall value created by the game experience. This alignment hopes to create a virtuous flywheel where a highly engaged base attracts the best content, and the best content continues to grow the highly engaged base, while sharing in value creation.
Iskra’s game partnership strategy revolves around game development experience and content-specific potential for web3. Following these criteria, Iskra has signed a new studio in its range of games: HDLABS. The studio has experience in the blockchain gaming space with “Stepwatch”, it’s Move to Earn (M2E) title, and is working on transitioning up to 30 titles from Web2 to Web3. HDLABS and Iskra will jointly release a turn-based RPG “Three Kingdoms Multiverse” in Q4 2022.
This brings the full line of Iskra games to four confirmed titles and highly experienced studios, including Grampus with its popular restaurant simulation game “Cooking Adventure”, Rich Alien’s 3-match puzzle “Cascade Kings” and the own title from Iskra “Klaymon”, a collectible RPG. Further announcements of new games and partners are expected by the end of 2022.
Mr. Seok-ju Lee, CEO of HDLABS, believes that “the combination of our gaming expertise, Iskra blockchain knowledge and engaged community will deliver the next generation of enjoyable and enduring gaming experiences. for web3”.
Mr. Ji-in Kim, CEO of GRAMPUS, added “We agree with the Iskra philosophy of Play AND Earn, not just Play TO Earn to foster genuine enjoyment and sustainability.”
