Who we are
1-UP is a blockchain game and metaverse project created by KA Labs. We’re attacking the PC and mobile eSports crowd with a 2D platform battling game and metaverse with built-in custom content creation tools.
We believe gaming is what will ignite mass adoption of Web3 technology. Legacy companies like Atari, GameStop, EA Sports, and Ubisoft are entering the blockchain gaming market. At the same time, high level employees and creative directors from AAA studios are starting their own companies looking to leverage NFT technology and blockchain compatibility into new projects. This is a market poised to erupt.
Our core team is comprised of 10 members and 2 advisors spread across the globe that came together in 2020 with the idea of creating a game we would all want to play ourselves. The decision to include blockchain integration came from recognizing a burgeoning market that would allow true asset ownership for gamers and a mechanism for an independent studio to compete with the major players in the gaming market. We are small, but battle tested. Our two tech leads have a combined 12 years of experience in the game dev and Web3 space and our product manager previously managed a mobile game with 10 million downloads.
So far we have raised roughly $200k from our token presale and another $225k from pre-seed investments. We are next looking for a seed raise of $1.75m to support marketing and user adoption, 15 months of product development, and team salaries and expansion. This would include setting up a unified studio in Vietnam to put our team under one roof. Our MVP game build will go to mainnet early Q4 2022 closely followed by our NFT mints.
About our game
The 1-UP platform allows users to deposit the 1-UP (ERC-20) tokens to enter tournaments and earn rewards. The available games are based on classic retro style platformers like Mario, Metroid, and Contra that gamers know and love. Players battle against each other in Team DeathMatch, and Battle Royale style competitions for a chance at a piece of the reward pool. Those rewards can then later be withdrawn into 1-UP to be traded on the blockchain.
Players will use NFT characters with unique traits integrated into the game with different profiles, clothing, armor, and weapons. The first season features popular internet and web3 figures seen in memes shared across Twitter, Discord, and Telegram. Our flagship creation is the custom character builder, which will allow you to create the perfect look for your in-game avatar and also allows for the upload of your own artwork to create a character to play in 1-UP World. Eventually users will be able to mint these characters as NFTs to list for sale on the open market.
A player will enter the game through the 1-UP metaverse and explore for treasures, meet other players to chat or battle, ride in cars, tanks, and helicopters, and also choose their preferred game type. The initial launch will feature two world themes on our custom game engine: Retro World and Meme Arena. Retro World will feature simple 8-bit pixel platforms and art that are more familiar to fans of the side-scroller platformers from the NES and SNES era. Meme Arena is where your anime-style 2D NFTs and custom art can be integrated into a similar platform-style battler. Both styles allow for all match types where the winners leave with the largest share of rewards.
Creative-minded users who may not want to play for rewards can also use the drag-and-drop level builder to create a custom level-design NFT and earn revenue from its use in 1-UP World. A game marketplace will allow purchase of game packs, weapons, vehicles, time boosters (to repair damaged armor and weapons), as well as loot box keys and a character rental system. 1-UP token holders are incentivized to lock their tokens into the game as virtual 1-UP where they can receive a portion of the reward pool based on their holding percentage and have a chance at periodic airdrops of NFTs, weapons, tokens, and more.
Later updates will continue to expand on the game play, solo campaigns, levels, character skins, and allow for more communities to integrate their NFTs. Plus we have plans for guild creation and more robust advertising inside the game to provide additional revenue to support development.
OpenBiSea Studios have plans to release five NFT game titles in the next two years. You can check the first title motoDEX - https://app.openbisea.com/metaverse.
MotoDEX game is a New Era in the World of Computer Games. MotoDEX is a competitive simulator in which users participate in motorcycle races, develop their riders and improve high-speed tracks. The continuous cycle of competitions opens up unlimited opportunities for users to earn money. After each level is passed, champions are awarded with real US dollars.
In just 7 weeks of active participation in competitions, you can increase your initial investment in the game by more than 2000%! Without much effort, risks and serious losses, you can get fantastic super profit in a playful way, comparable only to dividends from investments in bold IT startups.
We will establish a gaming studio to expand our AAA MMO, Game of Dragons. 4Ares will be a leader in the industry, producing high-quality games for a variety of companies, projects and purposes.3D Dragon MMO
In the Game of Dragons players come together to:
- Engage in various 3D battle modes as well as a MMO Battle Royale built on AAA graphics. People can fight each other and win Dragon Gold (Dragon Gold is the in-game currency, and it can be bought and sold with $GOD tokens on BSC and ETH)
- Breed new dragons each season, with the final dragons being also tradeable NFT's.
A few facts about us:
• We have been fully self funded to now.
• Multichain, MVP released as Season 1 while Season 2 will be released in April, cross-chain NFT marketplace and more.
• Aggressively expanding our team and looking to have our gaming studio incorporated in the heart of Islamabad, utilizing the wealth of talent available at our disposal.
• The gaming studio will start as a single business unit with around 30-35 talented people, working full time on Game of Dragons. Following this business unit, we will open more business units which will do outsourced business.
We are raising a $3-5m Series A, and would love to get you onboard.
