Welcome to the latest episode of The Unstoppable Podcast. Today we’re joined by an entire team — the BYOPills founding team: Dr. Ether Jay, Jetheca, & P_ether. BYOPills is a Web3 video games company focused on consumable items and interoperability between games.
We talk about how BYOPills got started, how the team got involved in the crypto space, and where they came from in the various parts of the games industry. We also discuss the importance of feedback when developing Web3 games, the timeline of game development, and the significance of interoperability for the games space.
The team also shares their initial vision when it came to creating BYOPills and how the project evolved and expanded over time. We chat about why metaverse land is so valuable, how scarcity works in the metaverse, and how guilds work in the Web3 gaming world.
Dr. Ether Jay dives into in-game mechanics and the significance of building on Unreal Engine 5. We talk about tokens and BYOPills’ upcoming drop, and finally, the team answers some questions from our community.
