Who we are

Game7 is a community formed to accelerate the adoption of Web3 gaming through crowdsourcing, to create public goods that can be owned by many. It’s a home for those who want to influence, shape, and build a better gaming industry, where the interests of players and developers are aligned.We are building a gaming nation, one that represents over 3 billion players and $200 billion in annual economic activity.

Our nation is governed by meritocracy, a system where a citizen’s contributions, not capital, grant them status, rewards and influence. It’s this philosophy that will create a more equitable and sustainable gaming future.

As part of this, we are building targeted games, products and offerings that specifically address the challenges that the industry desperately needs solutions for.

  • Storyboarding: Develop storyboards and visual sequences to illustrate narrative moments, cutscenes, and gameplay events. Communicate gameplay mechanics, character interactions, and cinematic sequences through visual storytelling techniques.

  • Collaboration: Collaborate closely with other artists, designers, and writers to ensure consistency and cohesion across all visual elements of the game. Iterate on designs based on feedback from team members and stakeholders.
