Ex-Konami Led Sci-Fi MMORPG "Search for Animera" Taps ImmutableX To Offer Unparalleled web3 Experience – Investing News Network
Search For Animera launching on ImmutableX will be a gamechanger for web3 users, offering a AAA-level game with seamless NFT minting and trading, backed by Ethereum 's native security
– The development team behind web3-native massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Search for Animera today announces its launch on ImmutableX the preferred platform for building and scaling web3 games on Ethereum .
By partnering with ImmutableX and leveraging its platform for the project's infrastructure, Animera developers can ensure that players can enjoy the convenience of high-speed transactions and zero gas fee minting and trading combined with the robustness of Ethereum 's native security. The developers will also benefit from Immutable's ZK (zero-knowledge) scaling solution, which has been in production for over two years, allowing them to focus on delivering a well-rounded and refined end product to audiences.
Andrew Sorokovsky , VP Global Business Development at Immutable, said, "We're dedicated to finding the most innovative games to collaborate with to enhance and broaden our web3 ecosystem. Our goal is to bring cutting-edge gaming experiences to players worldwide, and partnerships with projects like Search for Animera bring us closer to achieving that. By seamlessly blending AAA gaming with the speed and scalability of blockchain technology, we're unlocking a world of new possibilities for gamers in the years to come."
Search for Animera is a next-generation AAA interplanetary conquest, exploration, and MMORPG. Set in a far-away galaxy, the game tells a cosmic tale of exploration, conquest, and colonization of unique planets, new life forms, and immense resources — all presented within a graphically superior, highly engaging game environment.
Within Animera's vast universe, players will explore and colonize the Nubera galaxy, full of unique planets and lifeforms; navigate the challenges of an inter-species battle in space; and experience a thriving player economy in an ever-expanding sandbox, all while teleporting into deep space and immersing themselves in a mixture of procedurally generated and handcrafted worlds. There will be three distinct game modes to choose from, each catered to specific personas, including Explore Mode, Story Mode, and Star Siege Mode.
Animera was built from the ground up on Unreal Engine 5 by a team of veteran game developers, marketers, and smart contract builders. Prior to working on Animera, co-founder and production lead Thomas Dimi spent a six-year stint contracting for Konami Gaming on franchises, including Metal Gear Solid and Pro Evolution Soccer, while co-founder Adil Khan , spent a decade focused on digital marketing strategy, performance marketing and analytics, mainly at Wunderman Thompson.
Designed to be as accessible to mainstream gamers as possible, the game leverages Magic Link , a set of tools available on ImmutableX that allow developers to make web3 onboarding frictionless, secure, and non-custodial. Magic Link enables seamless onboarding of crypto -nascent web2 gaming audiences by offering a much simpler UX. Users can initiate gameplay by simply logging into their game client, while the tool automatically creates a fully integrated, non-custodial web3 wallet for them.
Leveraging this tech, Animera will be able to offer players true ownership over their assets, as well as the ability to be more directly involved in the creation of new content. This puts the power back into the player's hands and overhauls the microtransaction model of releasing new content that has long frustrated many gamers.
"I believe the pesky prerequisites to actually play most current Web3 games, including gas fees, additional crypto -specific know-how, and glacial transactions, have over-complicated the web3 gaming experience. We're super excited to be partnering up with ImmutableX, a protocol with a very similar ethos as ours, to change this, and take gamers back to what truly matters — the pure and simple thrill of actual, engaging gameplay," said Adil Khan , Search for Animera co-founder and chief growth officer.
In Q1 2023, Search for Animera will also launch its Genesis Character NFT collection on ImmutableX, consisting of ownable in-game characters, each belonging to unique factions from the game's escapist lore, and equipped with customisable cosmetic enhancements, skins, ships, and more. These NFTs will carry the additional perks of early access to the alpha and beta versions of the game, and while the game is free-to-play, Genesis Character Collection NFT holders will have exclusive access to its Story mode gameplay.
Search for Animera will soon reveal its whitelisting experience, Program X, aimed at selectively onboarding quality players and contributors, including gaming guilds, influencers, DAOs, and enthusiastic gamers, into its community.
Players can also look forward to a public beta test of the PvP gameplay, with a full release of the game coming by the end of 2024. Additionally, in Q2, the Search for Animera team plans to release their native token, ANIM, on both centralized and decentralized exchanges.
Immutable is powering the next generation of web3 games through ImmutableX – the leading developer platform for building and scaling mainstream-ready web3 games on Ethereum , entirely carbon neutral and gas-free.
ImmutableX offers unparalleled support to launch a successful web3 game on Ethereum . SDKs and APIs make adding NFT functionality to a game seamless and easy, the wide ecosystem of products and partners manage all blockchain infrastructure needs, and the ImmutableX Global Order Book generates real liquidity for assets.
Today, many world-class web3 games are built on ImmutableX including Gods Unchained, Guild of Guardians, Illuvium, Embersword, Planet Quest and many more.

Be the last player standing to win it all or dive into delicious doom
Frank's RedHot, the #1 hot sauce in the world* and a brand best known for spicing up game day foods, is kicking off its very own game in Fortnite, 'The Floor is Flava,' on January 30 . 'The Floor is Flava,' a flavour-packed version of Fortnite's Floor is Lava challenge that is inspired by the classic kid's game, is set on an immersive chicken wing-shaped island and centres around a volcano that spews Frank's RedHot sauce (a.k.a. flava, because Frank's + Lava = Flava!) everywhere.
"Last year, Frank's created the first-ever edible NFT made from Buffalo wings. In 2023 we go further, combining iconic game day foods with one of the world's most popular multiplayer online games, Fortnite," said Tom Rowe , Director, Global Digital Experiences at McCormick. "Whether you're watching IRL or playing virtually, Frank's brings the perfect blend of flavour and heat to the Big Game and gaming."
During game play, users navigate unfamiliar terrain: beaches, forests, and a ruined city, each offers RedHot-themed elements to climb higher up Mt. Frank. Players can jump on stone statues of iconic game day foods, use chickens as jetpacks, and play defense with RedHot sauce launchers and chiller grenades. Frank's fans will discover other brand-inspired game elements, like the Tender Defender skin, Chili Chugs for speed boosts, and a hidden temple at the heart of the volcano. Plus, seasoned Fortnite players may also spot favourite past characters hidden within the game, like Beef Boss and Tomatohead. Frank's RedHot has even tapped some of Fortnite's top gamers like Ali-A, SushieBae, SypherPK, Typical Gamer, and Zemie to take on the challenge and get fans diving into delicious doom.
Frank's RedHot first entered the metaverse when it launched the first-ever "edible NFT" and spoof cryptocurrency "Bonecoin" to celebrate Buffalo wings ahead of the Big Game. Now in 'The Floor is Flava,' Frank's aims to reach a new audience of sauce lovers with their most virtual and immersive experience to-date. Launching ahead of the most anticipated weekend in football, Frank's will also be celebrating by partnering with local commerce platform DoorDash to deliver free wings** to fans across the U.S. and Canada .
Visit Franksredhot.com/floorisflavaca on January 30 for the Island Code to play the Floor is Flava in Fortnite Creative Mode. Fortnite can be played for free on Playstation, Xbox, Switch, Android, PC, and cloud-based game streaming services. Stay tuned for additional information on the DoorDash promotion, announcing soon.

New capabilities enable users the ability to solve their problems instantly through self service or by connecting them with an agent
Helpshift the established leader in in-app customer service and user support for mobile-first brands, recently acquired by Keywords Studios, announced today that the company has been awarded a patent for its innovation breakthrough in mobile app support. With Helpshift's patented technology, consumers can use their mobile phone as a bridge to conveniently secure customer service for console gaming, TV set tops, and real world environments.
This patent is based on Helpshift's APIs that brands can use with their console game, TV set top or a real-world object (such as a hotel kiosk, an item in a store, or a shipment that is received in the mail). The Helpshift APIs will capture any contextual information for the customer and will generate a secure QR code and a secure URL link for customer service. This link is then used by the consumer with a mobile device to start a personalized support experience that preserves the initial context – saving time and improving efficiency at each step of the customer support journey.
Customer support is shifting toward conversational AI and automation to streamline processes, reduce wait times, and improve the efficacy of customer support agents. Customer expectations for support are also changing fast, with the customer experience becoming a key driver of brand loyalty: 72% of shoppers expect virtual assistance to become more common, 1 65% of U.S. customers say that a positive experience with a brand is more influential than good advertising – and 32% of all customers would stop doing business with a brand they loved after just one bad experience. 2
Although conversational AI and automation has become more prominent in web chat tools and within mobile applications, the market has been missing these enhancements on gaming consoles and within physical environments. Helpshift's patented QR Code support capability now brings self-service to these experiences. Users can scan the QR code and be directed to one of three experiences (based on how the brand wants it set up): instant self-help, an automated chatbot, or even messaging with an agent.
This patent is recognition that Helpshift's technology is opening new possibilities for customers to receive new, immediate, personalized customer support experiences. By bridging the gap between the brand's mobile app and the customer's physical environment, game developers, retail, and hospitality brands can unlock creative ways to deliver support and engage with customers.
Gameloft, an international developer and publisher of games for all digital platforms, is one of the first Helpshift clients to implement this patented technology.
"This solution came at a perfect time for us, because we were planning several console focused releases. So far, we've tested it on a couple of our on-going projects and we are very pleased with the results," said Anna Yangolenko , Customer Care R&D Coordinator, Gameloft. "We saw significant improvement across all of our main KPIs, CSAT being one of the most important and biggest improvement areas. We are planning to implement this solution in all of our main games."
"Helpshift is already powering mobile support on over 4B devices today, and this patent helps further our momentum to provide these same tools to console gaming, TVs and into the real world," said Erik Ashby , Head of Product at Helpshift.
Here are a few key examples of how Helpshift's patented customer support experience can open new opportunities for better customer service – in-app and in real life:
Customer support is becoming a make-or-break moment for building customer loyalty (or suffering customer attrition). With Helpshift's patented technology, brands can provide customers with context-aware, secure support that bridges the gap between mobile apps and the real world.
"People are using mobile apps for more of their everyday shopping and as an extension of their real-world experiences, and they are demanding a higher level of customer support that bridges the gap between mobile and real-life," said Eric Vermillion , CEO of Helpshift. "Brands need to seize this opportunity and provide a seamless, player-focused, mixed-world experience that engages people wherever they are, with the right support, in a way that shows consumers that you are looking out for them."

InfiniMerge combines simple mechanics and straightforward progression with Web3 elements like digital collectibles and play-to-own rewards
InfiniGods, the innovative Web3 gaming studio founded by social and mobile industry veterans, today announced the public launch of InfiniMerge a free-to-play merge game set in an ancient Greek landscape with a focus on building and adventure.
InfiniMerge is the first game from InfiniGods , which launched last year with $9 million in seed funding from Pantera Capital , Framework Ventures and Animoca Brands . InfiniGods is led by co-founders Owen O'Donoghue , former Director of Gaming at Facebook, and Damon Gura , former CEO and board member at DGN Games.
Since coming out of beta, InfiniMerge has attracted more than 1,000 players with an impressive day-one retention rate above 40% percent and a day 7 retention rate of 10%. The InfiniGods team has observed much higher retention rates than similar puzzle games, with NFT holders in particular playing more often than non-NFT holders.
InfiniMerge is a fresh take on casual puzzle games inspired by Candy Crush, Triple Town and City Block. With InfiniMerge, players are given new levels inspired by the legends and characters of a particular mythos.
"Merge games are popular for their simple mechanics and straightforward progression, and InfiniMerge combines all this with Web3 elements like digital collectibles and play-to-own rewards," said Damon Gura , Co-Founder and CEO of InfiniGods. "We believe that Web3 gaming will only reach its potential if games are fun and accessible, and that's the objective we've sought to achieve with InfiniMerge."
Early metrics show that gamers who participated in InfiniGods' recent Elder Gods NFT drop have a higher return rate than non-NFT holders. These players have used their 'God Powers' more than 2,000 times in two weeks in the InfiniMerge universe, with usage increasing over time as more players understand the in-game value of digital collectibles. Players can also generate their own in-game power ups (followers) and either use them for their own gameplay or trade them with other players in the game. This in-game, player-driven economy has already seen over 100 NFTs minted and sold in the first two weeks as players either play to earn or play for fun.
InfiniMerge also benefits from the instant feedback loop that's become a unique advantage of Web3 gaming. A dedicated Discord support channel has helped InfiniGods developers identify bugs and implement quick improvements based on community feedback.
"In Web2 gaming, community feedback can take months or even years to implement. Now in the Web3 era, we can instantly iterate on games based on real-time feedback from players, which is a huge advantage for community-building in the metaverse," said Owen O'Donoghue . "Detailed feedback from InfiniMerge players has allowed us to rapidly enhance gameplay, and we look forward to leveraging this killer feature to continue upgrading the user experience."
To further engage a diverse audience of Web3 gamers, InfiniGods recently introduced Community Merge , selecting one popular project per calendar quarter to be developed as an interactive, playable experience on InfiniMerge by leveraging their existing assets. Its first playable Community Merge level is called Wolf Game .
InfiniGods develops fun, free-to-play Web3 games centered around ancient mythologies and civilizations. The company's mission is to make Web3 gaming accessible and enjoyable for everyone while giving people the opportunity to own their in-game assets and boosting the player-owned economy. InfiniGods allows players to win valuable gameplay rewards, like power-ups and boosts, simply by participating and leveling up. The scarcity of digital collectibles shapes gameplay by enabling unique actions and rewards.
To check out InfiniMerge, please click here . The game is available on desktop, with full mobile support coming later this year.
Founded in 2022, InfiniGods is a blockchain gaming studio with a suite of fun free-to-play Web3 games centered around ancient mythologies and civilizations.
