Layer 1 blockchain Aptos to launch first web3 Game in collaboration with AAA gaming studio NPIXEL
Following its successful mainnet launch, Aptos is getting geared up to launch its first web3 game in partnership with NPIXEL. The game will be a Web3 adaptation of the original Web2 gaming title from NPIXEL, Gran Saga, which quickly became one of the highest-grossing game apps on the Apple App store.
According to Aptos, web3 gaming will be a core focus, with its collaborative title with NPIXEL being the first of its growing list of gaming projects.
The game, called Gran Saga: Unlimited, will undergo testing in the first quarter of 2023 ahead of its public release in Q2. Alpha testers will be enlisted through the company’s Discord channel, with multiple playtests being held over the next few months to sharpen up the game.
Aptos announced the onboarding of NPIXEL as the network’s first gaming strategic ecosystem partner back in November. Gran Saga: Unlimited is the first of many Web3 gaming projects to launch on Aptos as the team continues to pioneer the next generation of blockchain-based gaming.
Founded by Mo Shaikh and Avery Ching, Aptos Labs has dedicated itself to building better network tooling and seamless usability to bring the benefits of decentralisation.
