Newzoo, a prominent game analytics firm, has recently released its flagship Newzoo’s Global Games Market Report 2023. The insights provided in this report are particularly significant considering the current trajectory of global game development. The projections indicate that the global player base is set to expand to 3.38 billion individuals in 2023, representing a year-on-year growth of +6.3%. Concurrently, the worldwide games market is anticipated to generate revenues of $187.7 billion, experiencing a year-on-year growth of +2.6%.

On top of that, DApp Radar’s data indicated that blockchain gaming continues to exert significant influence within the dapp industry. In the second quarter of 2023, this sector commands a substantial presence, with 699,956 daily unique active wallets (dUAW), constituting 36% of the total engagement observed across the industry.

These seemingly standalone figures both underscore the enduring appeal and impact of blockchain gaming and how it contributes to the vitality of the global gaming industry. Nevertheless, the significance of game creators' roles often remains underestimated. Within this article, we will reexamine P12, a project that has introduced a transformative shift for the upcoming cohort of game creators. We will explore further how its pioneering game engine is inching closer to revolutionizing the landscape of game development in the Web3 realm.

P12 The Journey So Far:

As we discussed before in our blog, P12 essentially functions as a Web3 Gaming Infrastructure with a strong focus on sustainability, a facet that is deeply ingrained within its tokenomics architecture. In addition to this, P12 has been dedicated to cultivating a robust and thriving community comprising gamers, developers, and prominent projects within the industry. This endeavor has been realized through its array of Web3 Gaming Table events. These sessions have effectively united significant stakeholders from various blockchain domains, providing a platform to exchange insights, highlight opportunities, and showcase advancements within the realm of Web3 Gaming.

Continuing to bolster its ecosystem and community engagement, P12 recently unveiled P12 Power Level to its community, a strategic move aimed at enhancing the functionality of NFTs, with a lineup of additional utilities on the horizon. P12 has also successfully forged over 20 substantial partnerships with prominent entities within the industry, including Galxe, CyberConnect, BNBChain, SpaceID, etc.

Moreover, P12 has consistently demonstrated its commitment to enhancing the game creation process for a wider audience. In line with this objective, P12 is gearing up to introduce P12 Arcana: Linea Editorium in collaboration with Linea, an EVM Layer 2 solution developed by ConsenSys. This strategic move underscores P12's dedication to facilitating a more enjoyable and accessible game creation experience for all.
