Quick take:

  • Everything built on Createra is tradeable, including models, games, APIs.
  • There are nearly 15 million Gen Z users on Createra.
  • Createra offers crypto-native autonomous worlds with features including cross-play and instant accessibility.

User-generated content (UGC) metaverse engine, Createra, has closed a $10 million Series A funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z). The platform enables creators to create and distribute games for Gen Z.

With the introduction and adoption of Web3 tools like blockchain, verified ownership and asset monetisation, the game industry is seeing the birth of crypto-native, fully “on-chain games,” otherwise known as “autonomous worlds,” built on top of distributed ledger technology.

Createra offers crypto-native autonomous worlds with features including cross-play and instant accessibility. There is an unlimited player capacity on Createra, as well as multi-creator options and cross-play. Everything built on the platform’s metaverse land is tradeable, including models, games and APIs, allowing creators to monetise their creations.

“Createra’s powerful cloud-based web engine makes it incredibly easy to develop multiplayer games with web3 features,” said a16z general partner, Connie Chan.

So far, Createra has introduced two independently developed creation editors: VOXA, a voxel editor for models and NFT creation, and ARENA, a map editor for scenes and games creation.

Both tools are web browser based so that creators can access them through desktop and mobile devices at any time. The creations can also be easily shared through web links. To accelerate the building process, both engine and tools grant users the ability of real-time collaboration.

The platform has plans to launch more tools in the future, such as BEATA, for sound effects and music creation. 

According to the open-source analytics app, Matomo, Createra has built a community which consists of nearly 15 million Gen Z users, half a million builders and 1.3 million average monthly users on the continent of Asia alone.

Createra aims to be the go-to platform for anyone to create and build a metaverse where they can collaborate and play. Last September, Createra partnered with the Mfers NFT community to launch a metaverse space station for NFT holders. The space is free to access and visitors can browse NFTs displayed in the space or bid on them.
