Dev Logs #7: Game sounds, Depositing Shards, and Racetrack Styles
Take a look and feel free to tell a friend. If you’ve missed any of the Dev Logs over the past few weeks, you’ll find them on Reddit. As a matter of fact from now on if you miss Friday dev’s on Medium, don't worry we have you covered. Saturday’s repost of the dev’s will live on via Reddit. Who knows maybe you might find even more information.
Let’s not be shy, but keeping up with the Metaverse can be tricky, so if you have forgotten, Realm is a mobile-first, play-to-earn, social impact-driven Metaverse that allows gamers, players, and artists to create their own personalized NFT microverse. Creators can bring unique music, art, games, and experiences into their realms, and whole living worlds can be minted as ERC-1155 NFTs. Players can discover, trade, collect and view NFTs, play games, socialize, and create the worlds of their dreams. It’s why we do what we do, so enjoy the dev’s.
We want to make the depositing of shards as satisfying and rewarding as possible since it is one of the key gameplay features of the alpha stage.
We started off by creating a 3D circular path around the deposit object and added a variable speed depending on the distance between the deposited shard and deposit object, so when the shard flies around and away from the deposit location, it gets slower. As it loops back towards the deposit location, it gets faster, so the user feels the shard being pulled towards the deposit object.
Each Realm can define its own soundtrack, consisting out of any number ambient and music tracks that can be looped or randomly shuffled through. In addition, we support spatial audio that can be anything from footsteps to concerts in a virtual 3D space.
Sounds plays a big part in building atmosphere and immersion, but should never be forced onto a player. Fine-grained controls over each sound source make it easy to tweak things exactly to ones preferences.
We have been working on our racetrack designs. In Realm, you will be able to build and customize your own racing games — and challenge your friends to a race! Not only will you continue to see us build out new designs for players to work with, you will also see designers in the community build out tracks with their own custom look and feel!
Racing Towards The Future
Realm has acquired one of the First Forbes NFT Covers Featuring Sir Lewis Hamilton. The NFT was bid on by founder of Realm, Matthew Larby.
The motivation behind this acquisition is the heart of Realm. Sir Lewis is a vital world figure; we aim to galvanize his vision into Realm. We are all fighting to improve diversity while keeping a solid eye on the finish. The real world continues to struggle so we are creating an inclusive metaverse where the play-to-earn game format will give back to each player. Realm is excited to announce future corporations with Forbes Monaco, so stay in tune and keep reading the weekly dev’s
