Video Game Industry Veterans, MicroProse, Join Forces with Nepsis Studio and Moxy to Create an Immersive Pirate Game, Leveraging Web3

April 03 02:41 2023

Nepsis and Moxy, two innovative gaming companies, are partnering to develop and deliver a new pirate-themed game that is set to revolutionize the gaming industry. The game will be led by the legendary founder of MicroProse Games and the Civilization series, and a team of industry-leading game development veterans.

Nepsis specializes in creating visually stunning and immersive games, yielding tangible rewards for tournament participants, while Moxy is known for its innovative gameplay mechanics and player-driven experiences. Both companies have strong teams with many members having backgrounds in blockchain technology, which will be leveraged to develop a game that appeals to both casual and serious gamers.

The game will be a first of its kind, set on a mysterious island nestled within a magical pocket dimension, deep in uncharted waters. Players will have the ability to engage in trade, loot, and plunder, selling their goods and treasures to earn assets and build their reputation as feared pirates on the high seas. Additionally, the game will feature a robust crafting system, allowing players to create and upgrade their ships, weapons, and equipment.

To deliver these new types of e-sport experiences, the game will utilize Unreal Engine 5 and offer live tournaments, where players can compete against each other to earn tangible rewards ranging from $MOXY token to pirate-themed merchandise, like Nepsis-themed cigars (for participants of legal age).
