Babylon Booster Grants: InfiniteLabs | The Radix Blog | Radix DLT
InfiniteLabs has secured the $15,000 Babylon Booster Grant.
What is InfiniteLabs?
InfiniteLabs is a pioneering project that merges gaming with the Radix ledger, revolutionising in-game asset ownership. InfiniteLabs is committed to delivering a 3D game featuring an engaging core gameplay loop to ensure player retention. The game will include diverse game modes, offering a range of experiences to cater to different player preferences. Additionally, it will incorporate NFT assets, designed to enrich and elevate the fundamental gameplay experience.
It targets two primary user groups: those passionate about competitive multiplayer and rich story mode games and creative individuals interested in game creation.
InfiniteLabs was born from a mutual passion for gaming among its founders. They are driven by a belief in Radix’s technology and its potential in the Web3 ecosystem and to explore new experiences within Web3, starting with gaming—a universally relatable domain.
What sets InfiniteLabs’ game apart is its enjoyable gameplay coupled with an easy-to-use UI, fully integrated with Radix. This integration enables players to utilise their NFT assets in the game seamlessly. Scrypto’s simplicity has been instrumental in creating and integrating tokenized assets, allowing InfiniteLabs to focus on enhancing the gameplay and features of their game.
InfiniteLabs distinguishes itself by leveraging Radix’s unique asset-handling capabilities, the design flexibility of fungible and non-fungible tokens, and the mobile wallet’s user experience. This approach provides gamers full control over their in-game assets and broadens how these assets can be used, setting InfiniteLabs apart from its competitors, especially those on Ethereum and other platforms.
