SlingShot DAO, a game idea launchpad, is creating a platform that aims to democratize game creation — putting users in charge of which game gets added to the platform. Anyone can submit their game ideas, which are then voted on by the DAO community of SlingShot app players. The most popular ideas are greenlit for development and funded by the SlingShot DAO Treasury. A SlingShot representative further stated:
“Our platform invites all demographics within the gaming ecosystem to work together, fostering an environment of collaboration and innovation.”
Live on Roblox and The Sandbox, Web2 and Web3 players can play on the platform. DAO allows all players to bring their game ideas to vote so Web3 players can use management voting to add a new game to the network.
All subsequent revenue from the game and voting goes back to the app’s Web3 community via SLING tokens. SlingShot DAO also rewards voters and creators with SLING, while game studios can earn USDC, SLING and 20% of game revenue, all of which can be used to participate in future game development projects .
SlingShot DAO was launched on May 5 with the intention of giving players a greater say in the games they play, as well as bringing users together “to collaborate to imagine, design, and create the next breakthroughs in virtual gaming worlds.” It is backed by several leaders in the crypto gaming industry, including Animoca Brands, Dragonfly Capital, DCG and Sfermion.
In its early days, SlingShot DAO was created to change the way games are created, decided and launched. The platform has the potential to empower players and give them a greater stake in the games they play.
