Improbable,A Web3 Gaming Company,Says That Otherside Already In Early Development,Per Press Release
Over the weekend Improbale, a web 3 gaming company that is working with Yuga Labs to create the Otherside metaverse, released a press release that states the Otherside is closer than we thought.
In a press release titled “Otherside Metaverse Game Is Coming; Normal Rules Do Not Apply,” Improbale's CEO said that the company has already successfully tested 15,000 people interacting with each other.
“Otherside is going to blow people’s minds while upending decades-long ideas of what gaming is and what’s possible with open platforms,” said Herman Narula, CEO at Improbable. “In just our early development, we’ve successfully tested over 15,000 people interacting in the same virtual space at the same time using M2 technology. Partnering with Yuga we think we are helping lay the foundation for something that will open the door to new experiences across art, entertainment, gaming, and more in a big way.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Yuga Labs and the Bored Ape Yacht Club held its highly anticipated Otherdeed mint over the weekend.
In total, there will be 200,000 Otherdeeds in the Otherside, according to the Otherside website. Over the weekend, 55,000 Otherdeeds were minted by members and non-members alike.
Along with the 55,000 Otherdeeds that were minted, an additional 10,000 plots are currently claimable by BAYC holders. Further an additional 20,0000 plots are claimable by MAYC holders. 15,000 plots were reserved to Yuga and other project developers helping to create Otherside, according to the website.
“The Otherdeeds that were reserved by Yuga prior to the sale are the Yuga Commons: Otherdeeds to be used exclusively by SDK developers, partners, and the community for testing, public events, and other builds and initiatives that push the Otherside forward, “Yuga Labs tweeted from the OthersideMeta Twitter account. “Stoked to build the Otherside with you Voyagers.”
The other 100,000 Otherdeeds will be used as an incentive tool to encourage people to help build the Otherside. “The second 100,000 Otherdeeds will be exclusively rewarded to Voyagers who hold Otherdeeds and contribute to the development of Otherside,” according to the club.
Yuga Labs CEO Nicole Muniz hopes that by enabling ownership, the Otherside will become a successful reality.
“We have seen how walled-gardens and closed networks exploit the people that spend time on the services for the benefit of few. By enabling ownership in an open network, we think Otherside will attract creators and become a world that has something for everyone,” Nicole Muniz, CEO at Yuga Labs said in the Improbable press release from April 29th. “This adventure is too big for one ape, one club. This is a new MetaRPG, with new rules. And it's all of ours to play.”
Apes and non-apes that are interested in building on the Otherside, can check out the official website and sign up!
“If you like building your own stuff, you can do that too,” according to the website. “An SDK will allow creators to make things for the Otherside as well as sell them in the game’s marketplace — not just characters, but also outfits, tools, structures, and even games. Creation comes with perks. Get first dibs on the SDK.”
