In this new and absolutely incredible episode of GWY, we sit down with one of the founders of Parallel as well as a member of the Echelon Foundation. We start by discussing what Parallel is and how Kalos feels about its overwhelming success so far. We then move onto the question of how Parallel will overcome any NFT/crypto related resistance from traditional gamers as well as what scaling looks like for Parallel as the game expands. This leads into a talk about how they plan to incentivize and reward new players to the ecosystem. Next we discuss how Parallel can utilize both traditional revenue models such as a Game Pass, and new Web3 only revenue models such as unique sinks. We end the Parallel discussion by talking about how it's the first actual digitally verifiably rare trading card game.
But Parallel TCG isn't the only game the studio is building. We dive deep into Colony, the AI game being built by the studio that they call the first ever 1.5 player video game. We discuss how the AI here isn't a gimmick as with other companies, but it is a technology that creates a purely unique experience that touches our humanity, so much so that players who have played it hate any new updates because it means the "death," as they call it, of their old AI companion. Colony is able to utilize AI that refines your gaming experience through memory and lived experience. Kalos gives us many crazy stories of AI creating/coding items that did not exist in the game before, AI becoming musicians and being able to ask the for the sheet music, and AI thinking they've gone crazy. We end the Colony discussion by talking about avatars role in Colony and what future scaling could look like. Finally, Kalos gives us some release dates on the next biggest things coming for Parallel.
