Gallium Studio Raises $6M to Build Blockchain Simulation Games
The fund was provided by Griffin Gaming Partners and will help both co-founders build simulation games with a unique experience.
Gallium Studio Secure $6 Million Fund
Gallium Studio has secured a $6 million Fund to develop simulation games that work on blockchain technology. The games include VoxVerse, developed for Gala Games, and Proxi, a memory simulation game. Gallium Studio was founded by veteran video game designers Will Wright and Lauren Elliott, and it develops simulation games that use the latest Web3 and AI technologies.
The funding was provided by one of the world’s largest gaming venture funds, Griffin Gaming Partners. The investment will provide Gallium Studio with resources and partnerships to create a better immersive experience for its simulation games.
In an interview, Elliot said,
“This is a great time to be designing and publishing the next generation of simulation games, and we’re happy to be partnering with Griffin to make that happen. We’re at a point where advanced AI and the core features of blockchain technology can combine to support Will’s vision to keep players at the center of the development process. Whether it’s talking with the latest AI, or owning everything you create, game design should always put players first.”
Details On Proxi
Proxi is the major product of Gallium Studio, and Wright partnered with neuroscientists to explore the memory model and how data could represent memories. Although he is not an NFT enthusiast, he believes blockchain could solve problems related to user-generated content.
“Proxi is our main big project. It starts with memories, as we find a fun, playful way to extract the memories from your life… Then, Proxi becomes an instantiated conversational agent, an AI representing your subconscious.”
The Proxi game will be released in stages, and the first one may likely be a Memory Maker tool that will allow users to build their old memories.
