💡 Exciting Product Revamping
Our official CARV website is currently undergoing a phased update and transformation. Our main focus is to satisfy our users' needs by consistently updating and improving the following modules:
✨ The homepage is where our vision and values reside. CARV is and will always be the place where both games and gamers can discover, connect, and explore the exciting possibilities of the web3 gaming ecosystem.
✨ The Profile module will be the place where valuable credentials are displayed prominently, such as gaming hours, the number of games played, badges, etc.. Players will enjoy a greater sense of accomplishment and vividly shape their gaming image. Plus, we will soon support NFT avatars.
✨ To connect gamers more tightly, we will add the ranking list in the Discovery module, displaying the gamers who gained the most followers in the past week, and recommend gamers who play the same games and are in the same community as you.
✨ The newly updated game detail page and the original Missions page in the Games module feature past and ongoing gaming events, which can be a more powerful and lively traffic portal for game projects to get access to a larger group of specific audiences.
Apart from product revamps, we are always detail-oriented to improve user experience. CARV now offers the option for a game to modify its handle on the CARV website, which serves as the identifier in the URL of its homepage. This enhancement enables greater flexibility and customization for game developers, allowing them to create a unique online presence that aligns with their vision and objectives.
🌍 Expanding and Powering the Ecosystem
Over the last two weeks, we have proudly listed four new games, namely, Mithraeum, Step Monsters, Angry Dynomites Lab, and AstroMust - AstroRoyale, showcasing our commitment to offering a more diverse and thrilling gaming experience.
In our relentless pursuit of engagement, we hosted three AMAs with our partners: 9Lives Arena, Dehero, and Tearing Spaces. Moreover, we went to Elfin Kingdom and Ethlas Mega Space, gaining more than 1K listeners while sharing our stories.
We also extended invitations to industry visionaries such as @0xghosty, Founder of The Defimons, and @SinjinDavidJung, Founder of MAYG, to delve into "The Magic of Early Access & Betas," allowing enthusiasts to immerse themselves in the exhilarating realm of gaming.
Get ready for a dazzling gaming event as we are diligently preparing to bring you an unforgettable gaming extravaganza! We believe it will definitely leave you with lasting memories.
