Web3 games have exploded in popularity as of late, commanding impressive valuations from powerful investors. At the same time, we've seen collapsing pyramid schemes that acquired users with the promise of playing to earn (p2e). The criticism of NFTs and tokens has been growing, given their environmental impact, social gatekeeping and unwarranted speculative values. This talk will explore these failings and at times show that they are often much worse than previously thought.
By contrast, there are projects without marketing budgets being built by truly passionate independent developers and technologists that have decided not to monetize in the same ways. Instead, they are finding novel ways to create and share value amongst themselves. This talk will shed some light on these hidden gems and the ethos that motivates their communities to reshape game development.
Attendees will learn about the pitfalls and benefits that web3 has so far offered game developers and their players.
Attendees should have some light understanding of game design.
