VR Studio Sets Sights On Creating New Socially Immersive Experiences Combining Virtual Reality And NFTs.
AEXLAB, a technology and video game studio focused exclusively on developing groundbreaking virtual reality (VR) experiences and applications from the ground-up, is preparing to launch its first NFT series as it looks to plant its flag in the blockchain ecosystem. The Start Engine crowdfunding campaign has reached over $1M and counting.
AEXLAB’s mission is to bring together the worlds of NFTs and virtual reality, creating all-new experiences and introducing a whole new level of interactivity for the digital asset class. Their first NFT drop, to be released in partnership with Metadrop, will be a series of unique, AI-generated 3D virtual reality pets, known as VAILIENS, which will be minted for players in the company’s upcoming tactical first-person shooter game, VAIL VR.
Besides being loyal pets to players in the VAIL VR universe, who respond to their touch and commands and gain new abilities over time, VAILIENS also grant holders exclusive privileges. This includes Alpha and Beta testing opportunities, and access to the VAIL VR Social club, an exclusive community of devoted players in close contact with developers, giving them influence over the game’s development.
VAILIENS will be fully tradable, and available in a fixed supply of just 13,370. Of these, 10,800 will be minted via live auction Nov. 30 on the Metadrop platform. The remaining NFTs will be reserved for early backers (1,500) and community development activities (1,070). Users can sign up to participate in the sale beginning Nov. 15 on Metadrop.com.
VAIL VR’s multiplayer servers will go live on Nov. 26. Players with a VR headset can request access via Steam by searching VAIL VR, and join our Discord server. Between Nov, 30- Dec 2nd, different VAILIEN breeds will be sold in six simultaneous auctions. Follow us on Twitter for daily updates and giveaways.
