Vavel Games, a leading gaming studio bringing the next generation of MMO games to life, has joined the broad list of the HBAR Foundation’s grantees as the first gaming company to receive a grant from the HBAR Foundation. Through the assistance from the HBAR Foundation, Vavel Games is launching Vavelverse, an interlinked & cross-integrated ecosystem of virtual worlds & MMO’s developed by Vavel Games, on the Hedera Network.

The aim of Vavel Games is to develop a multiverse of interconnected virtual worlds powered & linked by Hedera Hashgraph. The gaming company plans to leverage Hedera’s decentralized, reliable, and sustainable network to expand its presence in the Web3 space. The launch of Vavelverse on the Hedera Network will bring more users to the Hedera ecosystem as it will open the network to a wider gaming community.

Founded in 2014, Vavel Games has launched several successful games in the past few years. Vavelverse has been built on top of Vavel’s NevEngine and ATX platform to bring unlimited scalability to Web3. The launch of Vavelverse will benefit Hedera Network by providing a platform for interconnected MMO Games starting with Vavel’s first title Imperium: Galactic War 3.0. 

The HBAR Foundation’s assistance will also facilitate Vavel’s mission of incorporating NFTs into Imperium Galactic War and quickly provide a mainstream gaming title to attract gaming users and NFT volume to Hedera. Vavel plans to distribute the first NFT drop in the first week of June with a full game launch slated for Q1 2023. Hedera’s NFT supportive network will assist participants in the Vavel Games ecosystem. 

“We believe this will be one of many virtual worlds powered by Hedera Hashgraph and we are excited by the opportunity presented by the HBAR Foundation to lead the way for other projects that would be owned by their respective communities” Mikołaj Marcisz, Founder & CCO of Vavel Games, commented on the launch of Vavelverse on the Hedera Network.
