German blockchain game developer Gunzilla has announced it’s working with the Avalanche blockchain to create its own gaming L1.
Called Gunz, it’s an Avalanche subnet, or app-specific blockchain, which means Gunzilla can optimize for the exact user experience it needs. Notably this means Gunz will be easy to access and require in-game tokens for gas fees, rather than the AVAX token.
This infrastructure – what Gunzilla labels its “digital economy platform” – will also be supported by the Gunz SDK and associated white-label services which will enable developers to build their own marketplaces, minting apps and companion apps.
As for Gunzilla, it’s using the platform for its forthcoming Off The Grid story-heavy battle cyberpunk royale/extraction shooter, which boasts input from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp and Altered Carbon author Richard Morgan.
“Our partnership with Avalanche not only allows us to leverage its highly scalable and secure blockchain infrastructure but also ensures a seamless, low-latency gaming experience for our players,” explained Gunzilla CEO Vlad Korolov.
“By building Gunz, we aim to revolutionize the gaming landscape with a transparent in-game asset management system by providing a number of market-standard features for game developers who are creating their economy on blockchain.”
Thirdparty developers deploying on Gunz will be announced in due course.
