Collaborative Alliance Enables Independent Metaverses, Including Aftermath Islands and Genesis Worlds, to Share Technical, Business and Marketing Resources and Create Value Among its Members
Toronto, Canada / Barbados / Antigua – February 7, 2022 – Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc., and Game Credits are proud to announce the official debut of the first-ever Multiverse Collective (www.themultiversecollective.com), a collaborative alliance that will enable independent Metaverses to share technical, business and marketing resources and create value among its members. Liquid Avatar Technologies (via its controlled subsidiary Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited) and Game Credits (Genesis Worlds) are building their respective Metaverses in an interoperable environment, which entails joint development, marketing, interoperability, authentication of users, verifiable credentials, and community engagement throughout the life cycle of each Metaverse, ensuring that users will be able to engage in a shared safe and secure experience. Users engaging in connected Metaverses is truly the next frontier in gaming.
Co-founded by internet, gaming, crypto and emerging technologies industry veterans Jason Cassidy and David Lucatch, the Multiverse Collective’s first members Aftermath Islands and Genesis Worlds share a united vision of gameplay, timeline, and focus on community-first engagement which has led to the creation of the very first Multiverse Collective.
“The future of gaming is collaborative and complimentary as opposed to competitive and combative. Working together early in the development process allows both Metaverses, and future partners of the Multiverse Collective, to ensure our virtual spaces harmoniously work together to create a seamless experience for our users,” said Jason Cassidy, Owner and CEO Genesis Worlds. “Doing this from the beginning makes it much easier than attempting to add interoperability several years down the road when much of the technical plumbing has already been set up.”
Aftermath Islands and Genesis Worlds have been working together for the past several months to ensure roadmaps and technical specifications are aligned. This process will continue throughout the lifecycle of development well beyond the official launch of each Metaverse.
“We are focused on a long-term multiverse strategy and the ability to move frictionlessly from Metaverse to Metaverse, which we believe will be key to the future of gameplay. Allowing in-game items to have true utility across many realms and enabling an individual’s or entity’s verifiable credentials to carry them over with you via your avatar to a new Metaverse are the essential pieces needed to complete the puzzle of what will make the Multiverse different from just another stand-alone game.” said David Lucatch, CEO Liquid Avatar Technologies, Managing Director Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited. “By combining our efforts with Jason and his team at Genesis Worlds, we are endeavoring to accelerate both our programs and support new and exciting offline and online partners as they make their way to the Metaverse.”
The Multiverse Collective’s goal is to foster an environment where other burgeoning Metaverses, industry players, brands, educators, governments, retailers, and other interested parties can join and take advantage of the collaborative environment. Without such a system in place, Metaverses will be taking on the full burden of carving out their own individual communities in hopes users will not demand the freedom that true interoperability provides.
Key principles of the Multiverse Collective include:
● Creating engaging and resource rich environments
● Fair Game Play among players
● The promotion and support of Good Actor strategies
● Supporting a safe and secure playing environment
● Use of blockchain based verifiable credentials to protect personal identity and data
● Cooperative and collaborative business and marketing strategies and initiatives
● Creating open standards to support the build and technology stacks of members
● Interoperability allowing players to seamlessly move among member Metaverses
● Work with offline and online entities to support their Metaverse activities
● Economic compatibility and fair exchange of tokens, NFTs and other key resources
Aftermath Islands is a virtual location based Metaverse where users can buy land on themed, community and estate islands, build expansive attractions and engage in various forms of gameplay. Their land sale is currently underway and has exceeded initial expectations.
Genesis Worlds is a futuristic Metaverse with various themed worlds that allow users to buy land, create and deploy unique experiences and engage in quest-focused gameplay and has begun to issue its Mining Claims for in-game ownership and economics.

About Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited – www.aftermathislands.com
Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited is a Barbados corporation which is 50% owned and is controlled by Oasis Digital Studios Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc.
Aftermath Islands as first described in the initial whitepaper published in 2017 and then subsequently updated, was based on the premise of a water-world with islands that represented destinations in a global virtual game. Since then, the Aftermath Islands Metaverse has evolved and now represents exciting
themed based islands, communities, and estates where players can experience a wide range of adventures and opportunities.
In Aftermath Islands’ virtual world, users can buy, develop, trade, and sell Virtual Land (VL), property and assets, like buildings, crafted items, transport, and other items all through NFTs, non-fungible tokens that represent the ownership of virtual and other assets. Each plot or parcel of VL is unique and owners get to choose what content they want to publish on their VL. This can range from simple scenery and structures to an interactive game, store, warehouse, dwelling, facility, or destination. Users can purchase VL as well as all other goods and services in Aftermath Islands with CREDITS, the current code name for
in-game currency, fiat and other authorized currencies, coins, and tokens.
Aftermath Islands is a shared virtual world, much like the Metaverse described by author Ernest Cline in his science-fiction novels Ready Player One and Ready Player Two. Expected to launch mid-2022, Aftermath Islands will allow users to connect and interact with each other, create content, craft, participate in activities and quests and play games. Aftermath Islands will have a virtual economy where users can engage in a myriad of in-world economic transactions as well as monetize the content, items, quests, and applications they build.
