Founded in collaboration with Chromia and Mines of Dalarnia, the $80m program will provide support to the most promising ideas in an effort to expand the metaverse surrounding My Neighbor Alice and the Chromia ecosystem at large.
Since the launch of the ALICE token earlier this year, My Neighbor Alice has emerged as one of the most exciting play-to-earn games being developed in the blockchain gaming sector. With a successful alpha playtest, minigame add-ons and multiple NFT sales under its belt, the game has amassed a large and devoted community.
Now, the My Neighbor Alice team is establishing a Metaverse Grant Program with Chromia in order to expand and enrich its gaming universe. Grants will be available for developers building add-ons and utilities for the game itself, but also for teams looking to design standalone games that can interact with the world of Lummelunda.
“From the beginning, My Neighbor Alice has been guided by a philosophy of flexibility and inclusivity. By encouraging the growth of other interconnected projects, we can expand our community by providing an even greater range of experiences.” -Lenny Pettersson — CMO, My Neighbor Alice
My Neighbor Alice utilizes the Chromia network as part of its backend design, allowing other supported titles to share assets across game worlds. As the number of participants in the ecosystem expands, complex synergies can form between multiple in-game economies. This also opens the possibility of cross-dapp adventures, where an asset acquired in one game can help the user progress in another. The Metaverse Grant Program will accelerate this expansion to create a gaming metaverse that is more robust, immersive, and resilient.
