Pakistan’s First Metaverse

The country’s first mega web3 project; The Cloud City Metaverse is coming.

The world is progressing at a rapid pace. Talks of futuristic technology have picked up and with the introduction of web3, with blockchain as a foundational element, one can begin to imagine a new world full of infinite digital possibilities. But there has been a misconception that developing nations are far from being tech literate. Pakistan took its first step to prove this theory wrong when Narsun Studios the largest Unreal Engine game development studios in the country came out with Pakistan’s first metaverse called The Cloud City Metaverse.   

To call it the first metaverse created by a developing nation at this scale won’t be wrong either. Cloud City is an MMORPG gaming based metaverse that draws on inspiration from a popular novel and movie Ready Player One to create fun and unique experiences for its players and citizens. The idea behind is complete freedom to engage and ownership of assets of every player when it comes to creating content. Not sure where to begin with TCCM? Don’t worry! This guide has you covered.

What is TCCM?

The Cloud City Metaverse is a virtual world that embraces all the components that formulate web3. It is an open universe with content creation tools that anyone can utilize. In simple words, it is a new digital frontier, an environment built with hyper realistic graphics and mesmerizing gameplay which everyday users, content creators and enterprises can leverage new opportunities from. Hosted on the blockchain, it is representative of an ecosystem which allows its citizens to own their personal virtual land, build structures and rent them out, create guilds, store NFT assets, play P2E games and monetize their experience. Anyone is free to use TCCM to create their own NFTs and use the marketplace in their own way.

TCCM’s users are incentivized to enjoy a virtual world that the entire community shares. Members can use our nativein-meta token called ‘Astral’, the native currency of the ecosystem and community members can use it to buy land in TCCM, make transactions in the TCCM marketplace and trade NFTs or sell their own. The metaverse has a decentralized governance structure in which the power lies in the hands of users and ‘Astral’ holders. It is the first virtual platform of its kind where users are in complete control over the ecosystem and where user generated content holds high value.

TCCM will not only provide utility to the gaming aspect but also will include elements of socialization, ecommerce, and the provision of basic financial products/services to our users With the spirit of the metaverse in mind, all actionable NFTs will be interchangeable and adapted for use in the different TCCM product suites and future partnered games/projects.

What makes TCCM Pakistan’s First Metaverse unique

TCCM has no central authority and the entire virtual reality ecosystem is operated and governed by its users. It is the first decentralized metaverse built on Unreal Engine that gives fine-tuned graphics and lightning-fast render speeds giving extra-fine quality to TCCM users. The citizens of TCCM will enjoy insanely powerful gameplay and a complete immersive experience that is yet to be seen in any other metaverse.

Another unique and super interesting thing about TCCM is its lore. Even with such advanced features, the founders of the metaverse did not compromise on the quality of its lore. So many elements like factions, their powers, ‘Astral’, along with other TCCM games is what makes this MMORPG unique.

Lore

Earthlings, divided by their hate, formed alliances within themselves, between like-minded people. Naturally, hatred grew, eventually resulting in wars that caused destruction everywhere. Tired of the chaos that befell mankind, Earth gave up. The Nuclear Holocaust, while destroying the world, birthed a utopian paradise hovering above Earth, glimmering with sunshine, and known to all people as The Cloud City. Three factions emerged, with a view to fight for their rights and lives.

The undying greed of the Elders of the three factions forced them to send scouts to the nuked regions of Earth to see if the biosphere could hold life once again. That is when the scouts found a wonder-material ‘Astral’, which had unique properties depending on who was using it and how. The factions were again standing against each other and Cloud City had its First ‘Astral’ War.

Business Model

TCCM is Pakistan's first metaverse where the lands, business enclaves, gaming platforms are still relatively new concepts. With time, TCCM’s business model will evolve, but the ultimate goal is to create a platform that others can build on and then monetize their creations. The content will be created by users and owned by users giving its users the ultimate freedom and power. Citizens can subscribe and convert their characters to an NFT. Any additional characters that are generated will require staking of ‘Astral’ amount to be saved.

An essential part of TCCM’s business model is the decentralized governance of this virtual world meaning the people who use the project or are invested in it will decide its future via a DAO where they can shape the future of this metaverse.

TCCM is a fully decentralized metaverse with agonal of giving its users complete autonomy and control of this world. Those who belong to the DAO are able to control the policies of the metaverse, determine what kinds of wearables are allowed, moderate content, and create policies around the use of ‘Astral’.

Marketplace

The Cloud City Metaverse marketplace will use smart contracts to control asset auctions and transactions. This will be an open marketplace for creators and developers to trade in-game assets with platform users freely. Moreover, economic principles of supply and demand will be automatically integrated into the system, allowing the community to determine the fair price of user-generated digital assets.
