MetaScapes by Vulcan Forged
Vulcan Forged has been successfully building metaverse games such as Forged Arena and VulcanVerse. To extend their footprint in the space, they are all set to launch MetaScapes – a metaverse-as-a-service engine where everyone can build their own metaverse and store that data in Blockchain.
You can create your own metaverse with just a few clicks – you won’t have to do any coding. MetaScapes is a product of years of development and dedication of the team. Now, it is going to compete the mighty world of Minecraft.
“Vulcan Forged has experienced rapid organic growth over the last two years—having expanded from two employees to over 130 and attracting over 200,000 users across 15 games and dApps without outside capital…
