Featured among the first companies in Asia to be selected for Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab, a global start-up program fostered by Ubisoft, Planetarium has shown themselves as drivers of innovation in technology within the gaming space. Working from a close mentorship with key Ubisoft staff, Planetarium hope to be a pioneer in bringing their blockchain gaming technology, Libplanet to a mainstream audience.
Kijun Seo, CEO of Planetarium – “It’s been about a year since we started developing the game and the underlying technology, and we’re very excited to reveal it now. Since Nine Chronicles will be released as an open-source project and owned by the player community, we hope to find many like-minded gamers who’ll support us on our journey ahead!”
Catherine Seys, Start-up Program Director at Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab – “The focus this season is in line with our goal to explore potential blockchain use cases for the gaming industry, and see how the technology could enhance players’ gaming experience,”
