Dev Log #35: Huge Investment News, Jetpacks, Fragments, and New Modules
This week at REALM: $10 Million Investment
Welcome to a very exciting Friday at REALM. By now you have probably heard the news — REALM received a $10 Million commitment from global investment group LDA Capital!! We are super excited about this investment, especially because it has come during such hard times in this bear market. With this investment, we will be able to accelerate our roadmap, delivering product updates at a much faster rate and establishing our company as a leader in the metaverse space. We hope you are excited about this news and what it means for the future of REALM — remember, you are still so early to this project, and there is a lot more to come in the future!
As usual, if you missed this week’s AMA on Twitter Spaces you can listen to it here. Remember to keep up with us on social media so you get the latest updates. Speaking of updates, let’s see what the developers have been up to . . .
For those of you who have completed the initial quest and have earned the coveted jetpack, fear not — you will be able to take to the skies soon! As you can see in the video above we’ve created the system to equip the jetpack and enable you to become airborne! We’re now in the process of testing and polishing the speed & handling as well as working on the rules for each realm in terms of max flying height and areas where flying isn’t allowed.
This mechanic will have a major impact on the metaverse so we hope you understand that we don’t want to rush it. One interesting consequence is that the climb up to the botanist will be eliminated for those that have the jetpack — a worthy reward for doing it so many times during the quest. When the marketplace drops, further jetpacks and upgrades will be available to purchase, as well as to earn through our upcoming games.
Fragments in the Metropolis
Fragments of other dimensions have started to manifest in the Metropolis gallery spaces, emerging from a dimensional instability in the singularity. You can now catch a glimpse into other worlds full of color, psychedelia and giants.
Along with the brand new portal designs in the Metropolis (they are live now, go check it out!), we will be pushing regular content updates to the Metropolis. Stay tuned for some super fun Realm competitions coming up soon!
Who wants to build their very own temple?? We certainly do. It’s for this reason that we’ve been working hard to add another 90 modules to the builder for you all to do exactly that! Soon users of the builder tools alpha will have access to this awesome module set to create with, and all of you REALM players can explore their creations!
