Paris Hilton-backed web3 firm proposes a mature virtual real-estate game
The new game Hometopia from Everyrealm is geared at older players that like house design and construction.
Everyrealm, a provider of metaverse content with high-flying investors such as Will Smith, Paris Hilton, and venture capital company Andreessen Horowitz, is releasing a “house design” and virtual real estate game geared at older players.
According to the release, after more than three years of development, Everyrealm’s new free-to-play game, Hometopia, would enable users to construct virtual houses and communities “with friends.” In addition, players will be able to own their in-game creations, said Everyrealm.
The business claims that Hometopia will be partially based on some of Roblox’s “famous house design games,” such as Bloxburg and Brookhaven, which have been viewed over five billion times, according to Everyrealm.
Hometopia, according to Everyrealm CEO Janine Yorio, is “a gamified blend of Pinterest, Houzz, and Wayfair” that is “poised to grab people searching for more mature versions of the Roblox home design games they grew up loving” She also claims that the new game, which will be released later this year on the Epic Games Store, would appeal to female gamers, a population that is neglected.
Alex Ahlund, the creator of mobile games such as Design This Home and Design This Castle, expects that Hometopia will attain the same level of popularity as the best-selling PC game The Sims.
Everyrealm announced in March that it had concluded a $60 million Series S funding round. An investment headed by the Silicon Valley venture investor Andreessen Horowitz, often known as a16z, has invested substantially in metaverse gaming startups.
The Weeknd and Nas are further investors in Everyrealm. Prior to the name change, the firm was known as Republic Realm.
