The video game industry is an ecosystem where centralized systems benefit gamers by creating, marketing, and distributing games. Producers of video games primarily rely on these centralized systems to provide marketing, distribution, and mediate payment for the products they create. While this system has worked well in the past to connect producers and gamers, blockchains are here and they are already colliding with video games to provide insight into how the game industry will change in the near future2 . Not only are blockchains providing a new way for producers to have a more direct relationship with their audiences, they are beginning to unlock economic value in unprecedented ways by changing gamers’ relationships with the games themselves3 As platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, and Steam rise to offer producers convenient ways to market and distribute their work, blockchains like Ethereum provide a way to more directly facilitate value exchange from gamers to producers by using code to mediate and enforce payment contracts. This kind of code-based enforcement is revolutionary in and of itself. However, this kind of authority model also offers opportunities for gamers that were never before possible at scale. Gamers can now:

  • Own their digital assets outside of a centralized system.
  • Use the same digital assets across video games.

Authority enforcement on blockchains occur via smart contracts. While ownership is derived from this enforcement, benefiting from this kind of ownership is not easy for non-technical gamers. Producers of video games also face challenges because blockchains are a new data model that requires new ways of developing games. While demonstrating great promise, blockchains pose significant barriers to entry for both the producers of video game content and the gamers who enjoy the producer’s work. What is needed is a system that provides gamers and producers of content convenient access to the benefits of blockchains while overcoming the design and technical challenges they present. Only then can producers demonstrate the new ways that blockchains will change the way gamers play the games and interact with each other.

8 Circuit Studios has developed a system that will bridge the key technical and design challenges faced by producers and gamers as they begin to adopt blockchains into the game industry. 8 Circuit Studios’ interoperating system consists of:

  • A Platform.
  • Products.
  • Protocols.

Roadmap

  • 2017 Q2


    8 Circuit Studios start

  • 2017 Q3


    Wave 1 8BT sale

  • 2018 Q1 - Space Drop and Mobile Wallet


    The priority for 8 Circuit Studios in Q1 218 was to focus on making crypto easy and accessible. After the Wave 1 Token Sale, we focused on two objectives: a wallet and adding a system to our existing platform to easily and quickly distribute 8 Bit Tokens.

  • 2018 Q2 - Alien Arsenal: Battle for the Blockchain


    Alien Arsenal: Battle for the Blockchain was our opportunity to improve on the progress of making blockchains easy and accessible. It was also our chance to see what players really cared about in a mobile game that is connected to the blockchain. We learned a great deal about the importance of ownership and gameplay, and perhaps more critically, we learned how to build better games as a result of our experience working with the blockchain.

  • 2018 Q3 - Wave 2: 8 Bit Token Sale


    The Wave 2 Token Sale is the event that will provide holders of ETH an opportunity to directly purchase the 8 Bit Tokens from 8 Circuit Studios in unrestricted quantities of up to 5M 8BT’s. The token sale will begin on September 1, 2018 and last until September 30, 2018. We haven’t made direct purchases of our token available to ETH holders since July of 2017

  • 2018 Q4 - The Portal


    The portal is the consumer facing ecommerce implementation of the 8 Circuit Studios platform. This is where gamers will be able to acquire 8BT’s using credit cards and digital assets using 8BT’s.

  • 2018 Q4 - Avatar System


    The Avatar System will create tokenized identities on the Ethereum blockchain. Initially these identities will function between the metaverse ecosystem we are cultivating, but they will also be developed to function as an alternate authorization key like one uses with their Civic tokens.

  • 2019 Q1 - API and Proto-Partnerships


    To connect to blockchains using the capabilities 8 Circuit Studios has developed, developers will need API’s. We are currently working with our proto-partners to field test our application programming interface and expect to have it available for public consumption early next year.

  • 2019 Q2 - Project Genesis: Alpha


    Project Genesis has undergone a significant reboot: multiplayer, upgraded space combat mechanics, advanced first person shooter capabilities. The aim is to provide our community the exclusive opportunity to see what is possible with games on the blockchain. With triple-A visuals and a visceral tactics-based experience, players should expect to see the culmination of our blockchain-based development in the Unreal engine.

  • 2019 Q3+ - The Virtuous Cycle of an Ecosystem


    Beyond Q2 2019 we enter into the development and reinforcement of our collaborative ecosystem. Our focus will be on building the technology that empowers developers, delights gamers, and demonstrates new business models thanks to the creative application of blockchain technology.

    The portal to the metaverse starts here.
