BLACK SNOW GAMES AND SIGMA SOFTWARE CREATED WEB2 TO WEB3 TUTORIAL FOR NEAR PROTOCOL ADOPTERS
Black Snow Games and Sigma Software Group contribute to the adoption of web3 and NEAR Protocol. The companies in collaboration with the NEAR Foundation have created a handy tutorial for anyone considering converting their games to Web3.
The blockchain expertise of Sigma Software Group and practical experience of Black Snow Games from converting a free to play large-scale mobile AR game called Black Snow were transformed into a sequence of practical steps accompanied by code examples. The tutorial is aimed to pave the road for any newcomer who needs a guide for converting a regular mobile game towards the game with NFTs in NEAR ecosystem.
As a mark of its quality, the tutorial was shared by NEAR.org, a collective, a foundation, and a development platform built on a new layer-one blockchain. In just a few days after its publication, Moving from Web 2 to Web 3 tutorial attracted a lot of attention from the NEAR community. Considering the important contribution to ecosystem growth, the tutorial was in the spotlight on NEAR.org blog.
“Our team had taken a very practical, down-the-earth approach converting existing mobile AR game to web3 ideology and architecture, we hope our tutorial will help NEAR blockchain newcomers and traditional game creators to ramp up for new web3 games faster,” notes Vlad Beck, Co-Founder Black Snow Games.
At 3.40AM on February 24 many of us in the Black Snow team awakened with the sounds of artillery explosions as Russia started an unwarranted full-scale war of aggression against Ukraine. It has now been over a month and our homes, hospitals, schools and people are under constant attack. Our team remains in Ukraine, advancing our state-of-the art AR technology and helping those affected by the war and the Ukrainian army as best we can.
We have just released a special version of the Black Snow game where 100% of purchases will be transferred to the Ukrainian Army fund. Destroy alien invaders and their Z crafts in the game and help the Ukrainian Army do the same in the real world. It is a simple and fast way to help.
The player’s fleet is now in the colors of the Ukrainian flag and we have introduced a unique Ukrainian “password” to identify aliens. “Palyanytisa,” a Ukrainian bread, became famous, because aliens cannot pronounce this word. The word got on the pages of New York Times. In the game, players can buy different-sized Palyanytisas to send their support to the Ukrainian Army.
It’s time to save the world from the Z force invaders!
From the very beginning, Black Snow idea is to bring full cinematic immersion to mobile in AR — you feel like you are in an epic movie, which is happening around the physical, virtual or imaginary locations.
You can play when your visible game area extends across large distances, like couple of miles around you, with multiple players. To make this possible we seamlessly combine Augmented Reality and live map. It feels like having the world at your fingertips.
With the latest Black Snow Platform advancement we added close range and ground-based gameplay scenarios with full support of ARCore and ARKit leveraging their computer vision capacities.
The render system received a major overhaul to improve AR playability outdoors with crisper and brighter visuals along with advanced transparency effects.
Going further, we aim to unleash the full promise of Augmented Reality. The way we use the technology enables to bring the whole new generation of games and digital entertainment on mobile and wearables.
