Describing the metaverse as a digital space where people come together, and move from experience to experience in a guest column on PocketGamer.biz, Bunch CEO Selcuk Atli argues that Bunch sits alongside the likes of The Sandbox, Roblox, and even Discord as being part of the current form of the metaverse.
Version 2 of Bunch will provide
- A spatial environment (akin to Roblox) where players embody 3D avatars where they come together and explore digital spaces
- open-ended experiences (as Discord) where players party up on Bunch and move between their favorite games outside the app
- a decentralised economy (like The Sandbox), which allows players to truly own in-game assets and facilitates extensible utility
Currently available on an "invite-only basis" as more features are added, interested parties can join the waitlist for access.
While the definition and formation of the current and future metaverse continue to ebb and tide, investment in the metaverse continues unabated, including Netmarble's recent announcement that 70 per cent of upcoming games will utilise blockchain technology.
