MetaMask, Game7 Unveil HyperPlay, a Web3 App, Focused on Gaming

Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) Game7 and MetaMask announce HyperPlay, which is described as “an open-source desktop application where interoperability is the default for Web3 games.”

HyperPlay claims it is “the world’s first Web3-native game launcher, built to make the user experience free of friction for both players and developers.” The platform “allows users to carry the same wallet with their NFTs, tokens and achievements into every game they play, enabling full interoperability for Web3 games.”

Until now, Web3 game developers have been “forced to sacrifice UX for function with no solution for adding interoperability to native games.”

jacobc.eth, HyperPlay founder and Game7 core contributor, said:

“With HyperPlay, developers can build the permissionless game economies they dream of. Players can take assets between games, use them in DeFi, and follow their friends’ wallets.”

Web3 gaming can “be more than secondary markets or yield farms, and HyperPlay proves that. Players can connect their wallet (MetaMask or WalletConnect) via the launcher and carry the wallet into each native desktop game they install and launch from HyperPlay.”

The game launcher “supports both the Epic Games Store and GOG, making any game released through a supported store or side loaded into HyperPlay playable.” Early supported titles reportedly “include The Sandbox, and many more to be announced soon.”

For developers HyperPlay “is open source, free to build on and provides a simple API to request transactions, signatures, or any other requests possible with MetaMask.”

Taylor Monahan, Global Product Lead at MetaMask, said:

“The launch of HyperPlay is a significant milestone for the gaming industry. Gaming is one of the most popular use cases on MetaMask and this milestone is crucial as it represents the first time that players can carry their MetaMask wallet into and across desktop games.”

Game7 is “a DAO on a mission to define gaming standards, fund open-source software, and make the gaming industry sustainable.”

As noted in the update, Game7 is “a Web3 Gaming DAO created to accelerate the adoption of blockchain-enabled game economies, with a treasury with $500m in capital committed by BitDAO and Forte.”

The Game7 community will “help shape capital allocation decisions, define gaming standards, and fund open-source software.” Game7’s mission is “to make the future of GameFi business models sustainable by ensuring the interests of players and developers are aligned.”

As covered, ConsenSys claims to be “a leading Ethereum and decentralized protocols software company.”

They enable developers, enterprises, and people worldwide “to build next-generation applications, launch modern financial infrastructure, and access the decentralized web.”

Their product suite, “composed of Infura, Quorum, Codefi, MetaMask, Truffle, Diligence and our NFT platform, serves millions of users, supports billions of blockchain-based queries for our clients, and has handled billions of dollars in digital assets.”

Ethereum is “the largest programmable blockchain in the world, leading in business adoption, developer community, and DeFi activity.” On this “trusted,” open source foundation, the teams are “building the digital economy of tomorrow.”
