Integration of Blockchain Technology in 2D Action Platform Game
Illuminia Studios Inc.
Illuminia Studios Inc. (Illuminia) is a digital entertainment company specializing in video game development and blockchain technology. Illuminia has employed numerous George Brown College’s (GBC) gaming students for placements and hopes to build on that relationship with collaboration on applied research projects.
Illuminia’s first product is BOAA, an innovative top down action platformer, that offers engaging single player game modes alongside a competitive and entertaining multiplayer mode. Making Afrofuturism the center peace of its theme, it is meant to be a perpetual gaming sandbox with an expansive player-driven virtual economy powered by blockchain technology. Currently, a tech demo of BOAA has been created and is available in the online Microsoft Store.
Illuminia is seeking GBC’s assistance to make development progress on the gameplay elements that will rely on blockchain technology, focused specifically on the Leaderboard function of their game. With a tech demo that demonstrates the main aspects of the game, the priority is to strive to advance the blockchain framework and application programming interface (API) for the existing basic versions of the abovementioned element to a minimum viable product (MVP) status that includes blockchain.
The GBC research team will be led by Firas Hosn, Professor at the School of Computer Technology, and supported by a team of 4 Student Researchers specialized in programming.
