- Aptos’ split-second latency on its main network ensures fast execution for a smooth gaming experience.
- In-game assets can be fully represented on the Aptos blockchain.
- This partnership could bring millions of NPIXEL gamers to Web3.
Layer 1 blockchain infrastructure company Aptos today announced a partnership with South Korean game studio Triple-A NPIXEL. This marks an important step towards Web3 gaming for Aptos as it will become the Web3 home of the NPIXEL METAPIXEL gaming universe.
METAPIXEL is a Web3 gaming ecosystem that includes the original Triple-A IP game that runs on the free-to-play model known to be promoted by Limit Break’s Gabriel Leydon. The GameFi ecosystem aims to open up a new economy for gamers where they can truly own gaming assets.
Through this partnership, Aptos aims to provide a fast and secure network where developers and gamers can easily create and play games in a multi-asset environment where token storage is secure.
Aptos claims sub-second latency on its main network, making gameplay fast and responsive. It also has user-centric protections designed to protect users at the blockchain level, such as key rotation, account recovery, and transaction pre-execution, thus ensuring the safety of users’ assets.
For game developers, in-game assets can be fully represented on the Aptos blockchain without the need to store additional metadata off-chain. This allows developers to focus on building games rather than managing assets in technology stacks.
Gamers can also take their assets with them to different platforms in the Aptos ecosystem for seamless compatibility.
“It’s designed to protect gamers who spend hours collecting assets or building their identity across games,” Aptos co-founder Avery Ching told Games Beat.
He added that the goal of Layer 1 blockchain was to create a battle-hardened infrastructure that could work at scale. Last week, Aptos announced an expanded partnership with Google Cloud that will power some Aptos validator nodes.
Aptos and NPIXEL are launching their partnership with the Aptos x NPIXEL event alongside the GSTAR conference in Busan this week with Aptos Dev Hub Korea, a public organization dedicated to supporting Aptos game developers.
NPIXEL is best known for its first massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Gran Sagawhich quickly became one of the most popular mobile games on the Apple App Store in Korea, with 4 million downloads since its first launch in Korea and Japan in May 2022. The game studio plans to expand its user base in the southeast with Gran Saga. upcoming global release later this year.
With an existing NPIXEL community of millions of gamers and even more players, this partnership could accelerate the adoption of Web3 games.
