Metaverse game blockbuster “Free Guy” exploded in popularity. How FIREWORK GAMES broke the boundary between the metaverse and reality

Free Guy” scores top spot: Rather than accepting your fate, better to change the world

“If one day you found out that you are just a NPC “Non-player character” in the game, will you continue to play, or choose another path, or even change the rules of the game?”

This problem not only exists in the main character’s heart (The bank teller) in the “Free Guy”, but also in the hearts of you and me as the audience. While the bank teller has already concluded his answer, we are still looking for it.

“Free guy” shows us our reality can establish the link to the metaverse by gaming. In the game scene shown in the movie, the player has a unique virtual identity and can interact with people in this world. The foundation of such kind of virtual social interaction requires great immersion, low latency, and the ability to access anytime, anywhere. Not only that player can be completely immersed in the metaverse, experiencing a different life parallel to the real world, but he/she get the opportunities to choose the path one wishes to experience.

In 2020, the explosive growth of DeFi created an evolution based on cryptology, comparable to the transition of riding horses to driving cars. We expect the constantly evolving Defi space in 2021 to combine with NFT, the metaverse, and GameFi. According to data from Dune Analytics, OpenSea, as the largest NFT trading market, has set a historical transaction record of US$3.425 billion, and multiple NFTs have also been auctioned at sky-high prices.

In the metaverse, a parallel world constructed by NFTs, themarking the ownership of native digital assets is a very important part of the metaverse. GameFi is in the core of NFT space. In layman terms, GameFi combines games with DeFi, adding financial attributes to the game, presenting financial products in the form of games, and the NFTs of these game props are the most common form of it.

GameFi is not just a game, its great financial characteristics combines with entertainment value, creates a huge explosive potential.

FIREWORK GAMES, a dream factory for gaming that breaks the boundary between virtual world and reality

“ Stepping stone to create metaverse -FIREWORK GAMES Game Platform”

In the current real world, the best way to enter the metaverse world is through an effective “stepping stone”. A shortcut which accelerates the development between the real world and the metaverse world, and the goal of FIREWORK GAMES blockchain gaming platform is to serve such a role. Through FIREWORK GAMES, anyone can freely create, play, enjoy and play their own parallel world role.

In traditional games, players, as the main participants and users, assisting the growth of the game day and night, but do not receive any monetary gains. Whether it is game items or accounts, the ownership is in the hands of game developers. Blockchain games, especially the birth of NFT games, have allowed players to become the real winners and beneficiaries. Game props, characters, etc. have digital proof of rights and interests.

In the stage of evolution from traditional games to blockchain games, FIREWORK GAMES has built a bridge to provide technical support, platform support, funding and community governance for traditional games to advance to the next level, and reduce player entry requirement through blockchain technology. It solves the biggest shortcoming of the low popularity of blockchain games on the market, including independent game producers, global game players, independent art workers, and art collectors, all of whom will be diversified in the FIREWORK GAMES platform services.

To demonstrate we have the abilities, resources and manpower to create such service, FIREWORK GAMES is currently developing a variety of games. Among them, a role-playing massively multiplayer online global metaverse game (MMORPG) based on the interstellar background-”SPARK ERA” will be officially launched as the first game.
