Alpha 1.3 Live Testing
At the latest Tea Time event on November 27th, 2021, the ESI development team let a long time community member do a demo test of EF: Realms Alpha 1.3. The demo was live streamed for the event, giving users a sneak peak look at the upcoming virtual social game for the EF Metaverse. It boasts customizable and predesigned worlds, VR integrations, and will use NFT assets from the NFT collection.
The community was excited about the footage and the Alpha tester proceeded to obtain a VR headset the following day. The impact to the community will be immense, since having virtual space for the project will allow users to interact in game and host community events.
Currently, ESI is looking for Unity and Blender developers to assist with the project. The Unity Engine application is being used to build EF: Realms. Work on the Community Center and the Elysian Fields NFT Gallery has already been well under the way and other segments are quickly expanding. Blender can be used to create 3D modeled objects and program them to be turned into NFTs. Blender assets can then be uploaded into Unity format and used for EF: Realms.
ESI is looking for junior developers who have experience or interest in creating Unity and Blender assets for the NFT project and to eventually program into EF Realms. This is a major upcoming step in the Road Map for the project, and it will bring the Metaverse fully together into a unified space and experience.
