InfiniteWorld is serious about Web3 and the metaverse, and so it has acquired game studio Super Bit Machine for an undisclosed price.
The aim is to use the independent game studio, the maker of Armajet, to build games that will drive consumer engagement for InfiniteWorld, which is an infrastructure company that wants to enable brands to create, monetize, and engage with digital content.
“We’re bringing communities from Web2 to Web3, and our belief is gaming is the key to that,” said Brad Allen, CEO of InfiniteWorld, in an interview with GamesBeat. “This is about bringing in next level engagement, and experiences, which is what Web3 and the metaverse are about. Super Bit Machine has a scalable technology around gaming and gaming infrastructure that allows us to really be in the market quickly with this next level of engagement.”
I interviewed Allen and Alexander Krivicich, founder of Super Bit Machine, who are still upbeat about Web3, gaming, and the metaverse in spite of the tough economy.
Super Bit Machine is a mobile game studio started by veterans who have experience running multiplayer top-10 grossing games on iOS and Android.
Web3, gaming and the metaverse
The acquisition is aimed at bolstering InfiniteWorld’s ability to bring metaverse and Web3 experiences to brands, with the addition of real-time multiplayer game development capabilities, which will now be part of its core offerings portfolio.
