Yesterday (November 27), Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous lead for the Shiba Inu ($SHIB) project explained how the team is preparing to make a very impressive entrance into the world of gaming.
In a Medium blog post titled “The Future of Gaming Is Shib”, Shytoshi started by saying that although he could not provide “exact” about the game that his team is building (because of concerns over how quickly many other people would try to steal the concept), he did reveal that their new games division — Shiba Inu games — has hired legendary veteran video game designer and developer William David Volk to lead the design and implementation of the game, which is being developed by a “AAA Game Studio”.
Volk — former VP of Technology at Activision — who indicates on his LinkedIn page that he has been working on a freelance basis for Shiba Inu Games since the start of the month, had this to say:
“I am honored to be working with an amazing team on what will become one of the most significant games of all time.“
This is what Shytosh said about Volk’s vast experience in the world of gaming:
“… you have to remember that William is no ordinary game developer, he’s a true visionary with decades of top-notch high quality experience on the corporate side… and also on the independent side having run his own game studio as well. (Just for reference he also shares credit for the FIRST iPhone game ever released! So he has years of experience in mobile gaming too.“
He went on to mention that Shiba Inu Games is “focused on working with amazing consultants and contractors to build an incredible first version of the Shiboshi game” — which will be “primarily for mobile” and the finished game will be “licensed solely to the decentralized team at Shiba Inu for use on Shibarium”. The Shina Inu team will then “add various decentralized elements to enhance this mobile version”.
Shytoshi noted that this would “provide unique opportunities within the Shiba Inu Ecosystem ($SHIB, $LEASH & $BONE), while Shiba Inu Games remains completely separate from this activity”. Furthermore, he pointed out that “the revenue gained from Shiba Inu Games in-app purchases also provides opportunities for Shib & Leash burns”.
As for Shiba Inu’s entry into the metaverse, Shytoshi said that he loves the idea of “having a VR world where people can interact and basically live” and that the Shiba Inu Core Devs (SICD) are already working on the “OshiVerse”.
