“I’ve always considered the community and their efforts an integral part of my games’ experience,” said Will Wright, Gallium Studio’s Cofounder. “With Forte’s blockchain platform, we now have a secure way to integrate and reward the community’s contributions. Our first presale is a way to officially thank the community and creators for their support with the game.”

“Will has reshaped our idea of what a video game can be time and time again,” said Josh Williams, Forte’s CEO and Cofounder. “With Proxi, he’s not just creating a breakthrough experience, he’s reinventing the very way games can be made by giving the community ownership of the content they create. It’s a privilege for us to work with Will and the rest of the Gallium team, and support their incredible creative vision, starting with this presale.”

Proxi is an AI simulation game where players first build digital dioramas representing their personal memories using thousands of digital “memory objects” created by Gallium Studios and its player community. Players will eventually be able to construct a digital version of themselves that they can interact and play with, and gain new insights about their subconscious.

Forte’s blockchain and NFT platform aims to address the growing misalignment between game developers, players, and fans. It unlocks the creation of new gameplay and world designs that directly support the long-term health of a game through community economics, the organization’s economic framework. In Proxi, Forte’s platform enables the community to own and manage the content they create, and if they choose to, monetize them via an in-game marketplace.
