The Weeknd, Coinbase, and Andreessen Horowitz are supporting the Metaverse technology business Everyrealm, which is teaming up with the video game Hometopia to release the first leading Metaverse game for designing, constructing, and remodeling virtual homes.
Hometopia is a free-to-play video game that gives players the opportunity to collaborate with their friends in the construction of their ideal villages and residences. In Hometopia, in contrast to more conventional video games, players are granted full ownership of whatever they construct and earn in the game.
Alex Ahlund, founder and developer of Hometopia, said, “Hometopia will capture those looking for a more realistic home design and world creation game as they age out of the homebuilding games they loved as a kid. Hometopia stands to become this generation’s The Sims, one of the best-selling PC games of all time, which sold more than 11 million copies generating more than $5 billion in revenue.”
Becoming More Adult-Versions of Roblox Interior Design Games
The gameplay of Hometopia is quite similar to that of some of the most well-known home design games available on Roblox, such as Bloxburg and Brookhaven. Bloxburg, which was first made available to the public in 2015, has received more than five billion visits and has been added as a favorite over 11 million times. Another Roblox-based home construction simulation game called Brookhaven regularly has more than 450,000 users on the platform at the same time.
Meanwhile, Hometopia is positioned to attract individuals yearning for more adult versions of Roblox interior design games they grew to adore as youngsters. It will notably appeal to a female population that has been disregarded by other Metaverse gaming initiatives but which represents a disproportionate amount of spending power. All of this is a direct result of Hometopia being a gamified combo of Pinterest, Houzz, and Wayfair.
Everyrealm is most well-known for its extensive and varied Metaverse real estate holdings as well as its numerous successful Metaverse initiatives, such as Fantasy Islands and The Row. Hometopia is a project backed by Polygon, Forte, and Overwolf and spearheaded by Alex Ahlund, a 20+ year veteran of the video game industry best known for top-grossing mobile games such as Design This Home and Design This Castle, which both had over 25 million players.
Partnering to Bring Life to the Metaverse
Hometopia has been in production for over three years, and it will be released later this year for free on the Epic Games Store for PC. A Mac version and versions for other platforms will be released in the future. Everyrealm is a Metaverse technology firm that develops and invests in technology that connects individuals to the Metaverse. This gives Everyrealm the ability to breathe life into the Metaverse.
Everyrealm is among the most active investors and creators in the Metaverse real estate economy. Everyrealm creates, incubates, and invests in projects for the Metaverse that are intended to breathe life into the space. These projects include Fantasy Islands, Realm Academy, the Row, an esports guild and tournament platform, and others. Today, Everyrealm runs a portfolio consisting of investments in 30 or more Metaverse platforms and over 4,000 NFTs.
Everyrealm, a firm that focuses on virtual worlds, and Giant Junior, a company that develops video games, have collaborated to form Hometopia Inc. Giant Junior was established in 2002 as a game developer and publisher. Some of the company’s most well-known titles, such as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Daycare Nightmare, are available on major gaming websites and in retail stores. Under their mobile gaming brand, App Minis, they generated over 25 million downloads for top-grossing home design games such as Design This Home and Design This Castle.
