On Monday (August 15), legendary video game designer and developer William David Volk talked about Shiba Inu’s upcoming card game “Shiba Eternity”.
Here is what Binance Academy says about Shiba Inu:
“Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a dog-themed meme cryptocurrency named after a Japanese dog breed. It was created in 2020 by an anonymous developer named Ryoshi, who designed SHIB to be an alternative to Dogecoin (DOGE) on the Ethereum blockchain.
“SHIB is an ERC-20 token with a decentralized exchange called ShibaSwap. The SHIB roadmap and ecosystem also features an NFT art incubator called Shiba Artist Incubator, 10,000 ‘Shiboshi’ NFTs, and an NFT game Shiboshi Game.
“Shiba Inu had an initial circulating supply of 1 quadrillion tokens. Ryoshi locked 50% of the token in Uniswap to create liquidity, and sent the other 50% to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin’s wallet. However, Vitalik decided to burn 90% of the coins and donate the remaining 10% to charity.“
On 27 November 2021, Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous lead for the ShibaInu 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.“
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”.
On August 2, the Shiba Inu team revealed several important details about the upcoming game, namely that Shiba Eternity is a collectible card game (CCG) that is being developed in collaboration with world-renowned AAA game development company PlaySide Studios. This game will be released for both iOS and Android.
Here are two of the cool cards from Shiba Enternity:
And here is a brief description of Shiba Enternity from the Shiba Inu Discord channel:
“Shiba Eternity features 10,000 Shiboshi heroes, jaw-dropping visuals, hundreds of uniquely beautiful cards, action-packed battles, and an awe-inspiring lore-driven environment that draws you into each heart-stopping encounter.“
Anyway, here is what Volk said about the test launch of Shiba Eternity in Vietnam:
