What’s Inside?

  • Interviews with leading industry professionals
    In this edition, we had the opportunity to interview Hideaki Uehara from Square Enix, one of the largest global game developers and publishers with titles such as final fantasy and the action-RPG Kingdom Hearts series, to talk about all things blockchain and gaming.
    We had the chance to catch up with Elina Arponen, CEO of Quicksave Interactive, a studio developing web2 and web3 games and development tools for the new social games market, and have worked on titles such as Axie Ray of Light to talk about the differences of building games traditional and blockchain game development.
  • Web2 to web3 gaming, integrating blockchain technology
    If you are a web2 developer looking to transition to web3, we have a special pull-out guide written in collaboration with our members to outline some of the different blockchain features to consider. Find out firsthand the challenges and solutions from Antler Interactive, an interactive game studio that makes cool games with great technology, including My Neighbor Alice, their latest blockchain-based game.
