Gear up for the metaverse.
Welcome to a revolutionary web3 entertainment experience from the team at Dimension Studio. Metashima is a collection of high-quality 3D virtual robots, meticulously designed with all traits and attributes randomly generated in `The Factory`, our auto-generative 3D asset system, using 3ds Max, Maya, and Unreal Engine, released on the Ethereum blockchain.
The first 4,720 droids, Metashima Lightning, were released by Obsidian Robotics providing an entry point to an exciting roadmap that will unlock new utility and future value for your metaverse endeavours. Find out our entire mission in the Shimapaper.
Story so far
Metashima is the first product from virtual corporation Obsidian Robotics (OR), headed up by ADA, the Chief Scientist. Three years ago, OR invented the Obsidian Cell (OC), a sustainable, super energy, and power source for Metashima and other OR products.
Production of the first Metashima - named Lightning, went smoothly but later an undetected failure caused a variant Metashima DNA type - codenamed Shadow.
Metashima were designed to be modular and customisable to collect, store, and swap with new equipment. So far, OR have released Accessory Pack 01 (AP1); fully-loaded accessories, each AP1 has a unique power. You can claim your AP1s below.
The MAG is the first virtual space for you to interact with and customise your Metashima, it will become your 3D workshop, training dojo, and be your base station and portal to other metaverse worlds. Phase One of the MAG is here.
