AAA shooter game Shrapnel made its presence felt at the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), which ran from July 21-24, 2022. The team held talks, author signing sessions, and also displayed Shrapnel comic books, lanyards, stickers etc. at the booth.
Shrapnel is one of the latest Web3 games to come out on the Avalanche Network. Currently under pre-sale phase, the First-Person Shooter (FPS) game utilizes Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to allow true ownership of in-game assets.
According to its whitepaper, Shrapnel is “bundled with a rich set of player-creation tools, combining combat, creation, curation, and connection into a community where players own the platform and decide its future.”
The team behind Shrapnel consists of highly-experienced professionals including CEO Mark Long, Head of Studio Don Norbury, and Head of Game Colin Foran, to name a few. Collectively, the group boasts a portfolio of games that includes prominent titles such as Bioshock, Call of Duty, Halo, Madden NFL, Westworld, and the list goes on.
Although Shrapnel is primarily known as a blockchain game, its rich storyline – which extends into the comic format – has gained some following among graphic novel fanatics.
San Diego Comic Con
The SDCC is an international comic book convention held annually in San Diego, California. Originally focused on showcasing comic books and sci-fi/fantasy film and television, the event has since expanded to include anime, manga, toys, and video games, among others.
Crowned by the Guinness World Records as the “largest annual comic and pop culture festival in the world,” this year’s gathering was highlighted by Disney and Marvel’s announcement of upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies and TV shows.
In mid-July of 2022, entertainment conglomerate Disney chose Web3 and Metaverse as the main focus of “Disney Accelerator,” an investment and advisory program that supports technologically innovative companies.
