Justin Kan’s Web3 Startup Fractal Launches FStudio to Build Blockchain Games Faster
- Fractal has unveiled its web3 game development tool FStudio.
- The platform allows developers to build, market and monetize their games regardless of their experience with blockchain technology.
- FStudio wants to make it easier for traditional game companies to utilize the power of web3.
Fractal has unveiled its web3 game developer kit that allows developers to build, market and monetize their games with ease. FStudio is building a platform that allows mainstream game companies to easily leverage web3 elements without disrupting the experiences valued by traditional gamers.
Since blockchain gaming became a trendy buzz in late 2021, several traditional gaming companies have either expressed interest in joining the wave or launched their own NFT gaming projects.
However, a good percentage of them were eventually forced by their fanbases to revert to blockchain game plans, with players unimpressed with the quality of the games being produced. Others saw the move by the companies as driven solely by greed, rather than the desire to improve gaming experiences in their ecosystems.
FStudio is trying to bridge the divide by creating a platform for developers to create games without blockchain expertise.
Justin Kan, highlighting the problem that has slowed the adoption of blockchain games in the mainstream, Fractal’s co-founder and CEO said, “The gaming industry has become obsessed with talking about that backend technology – turning off players and distracting Web3 startups from their main mission: to create excellent gaming experiences.”
According to Kan, the conversation needs to be redirected to players rather than the technology to move forward.
“Over the past eight months or so, we’ve been working on a bunch of features that help empower the next wave of developers for Web3 games,” Kan told GamesBeat. “We call it FStudio. We solve the problems we learned from talking to developers. Many developers have launched their NFT collections, but they haven’t delivered their games yet. We help them solve these problems by breaking them down into builds , acquire and earn money.”
The Twitch founder sees Fractal as the blockchain gaming version of Steam in the long term. Steam is a digital platform that provides online video game distribution services and a storefront.
Currently, Fractal boasts about 150 blockchain games on its platform, and Kan says the company is “trying to add a lot of community game discovery layers on top, and the whole point is to make Web3 easier.”
