In addition to adding to in-game utility and style, we think that the ideation and innovation generated by this collaboration will enhance the game experience tremendously.”

Life Beyond is a free-to-play online title with a player-driven tokenized economy based on NFTs. Darewise revealed the game — originally teased as “Project C” — in 2019. It touted the game’s persistent open world where players could build up an in-game society. Animoca Brands acquired 70% of Darewise in 2022.
