    Leo Kahn, CEO of Undeads Metaverse, delved into the journey of creating a AAA survival Web3 game during a recent AMA with Cointelegraph. Kahn’s narrative weaves a tale of innovation, community-driven development and the seamless blending of traditional and blockchain gaming technologies.

    Kahn emphasized the complexity and dedication involved in producing a game of AAA caliber within the Web3 ecosystem, noting that achieving such quality involves collaborations with renowned studios like Warner Brothers for sound design.

    Reflecting on inspirations, Kahn paid homage to Capcom’s Resident Evil series, a foundational pillar in the survival horror genre:

    “Since I was a kid, I’ve been playing that game, and they are still going strong. But it’s really about how you take it to the next level. For example, in our game, you can play as zombies and you can play as humans as well.”

    Undeads Metaverse is designed to be accessible to both Web2 and Web3 users. “Why even do Web2? Because some of the platforms do not support Web3 tech, whether it’s your iOS or Android. So, we basically built it for everyone,” Khan said.

    “We spent about $9 million as of January 2024 in just developing this game,” revealed Kahn and added: “We also did our mint launch, which generated a little over a million dollars in the dead of crypto winter, where nobody was doing anything. We became the top third tradeable asset on OpenSea.”

    Kahn outlined the expansive game lineup of the Undeads Metaverse, including titles like Undeads Rush, Undeads Viral (both currently available) and Undeads Lottery (launching in Q1 2024), embodying the Web3 gaming ethos.

    Talking about the studio’s flagship Undeads.com game, “Everyone wants their hand on this one, they are like ‘How can we play this game, get our hands on it?’ Finally, after more than two years of development, this game is coming out in Q2 2024.” said Kahn.

    “Undeads.com will be VR-focused from day one, both for Web2 and Web3. We are not announcing any dates yet for when the VR capabilities are going to be available.”

    Khan explained the difference between traditional Web2 models and Undeads Metaverse’s play-to-earn model: “Yesterday, I was playing Roblox on my PS5. You spend time and you play these games, but the game doesn’t love you back. You are just giving your time to the game, and that’s pretty much it.”

    “On the flip side, for us [with the play-to-earn model], you get paid to play,” he continued, adding: “You can be a builder in the game. You can build amazing buildings, puzzles, weapons and potions. You can earn and sell those within Undeads.com. [...] With us, you can get the UDS token and swap it for anything you like. It’s basically real money in the bank. That is the most interesting part of our game that separates us from traditional Web2 gaming.”

    Community engagement is central to the development philosophy of Undeads Metaverse, with Kahn highlighting the active involvement of nearly 60,000 members across Discord and Telegram in shaping the game’s direction. Kahn also announced the launch of the UDS token scheduled for Q2 2024, emphasizing utility over speculative trading.

    “There are about 1,500, maybe 1,600, Web3 games today. Rome wasn’t built in one day, but honestly, they kinda suck and take the fun away from the game,” critiqued Kahn and outlined their mission to deliver a AAA-rated game that genuinely entertains and engages its players.

    Kahn’s vision extends beyond gaming to a belief in the enduring potential of the metaverse, citing significant investments by industry giants like Mark Zuckerberg as a testament to the metaverse’s future impact. The Undeads Metaverse CEO’s optimism is mirrored in the project’s roadmap, which includes the integration of VR technology.
