May 2024 – AI gone-rogue Web3 game Shutdown has announced its partnership with Web3 gaming platform, Immutable. The partnership will see Shutdown launch on Immutable zkEVM, powered by Polygon.

Built by Garage Studios, Shutdown is an action-packed We’ve shooter game set in a dystopian universe where AI has gone rogue. Players engage in fast-paced battles against virtual opponents as humans fight for what is left of the universe.

Immutable is at the forefront of Web3 gaming. The platform brings the best of digital ownership to every developer by making it safe to build and publish on the blockchain. Players also enjoy the rewards of Play-to-earn gaming by owning in-game assets and trading immutable NFTs.

The collaboration is an opportunity for the two companies to build out the future of web3 gaming. Immutable zkEVM is the best-in-class chain for games that offer EVM capabilities. The chain merges the best of zero knowledge roll-up technology with the power of the Ethereum ecosystem. It’s a one-stop shop for gamers and developers as developers can build on the chain and players can play on the same.

All of Immutable’s products, including Passport, Orderbook, and Checkout are compatible with Immutable zkEVM and preset smart contracts are available for developers to build easily. Shutdown will utilize this array of products to build out its game. Players of Shutdown will be able to assemble characters, armor, and weapons that they can sell, own, and upgrade in-game using Immutable scaling solutions.

For example, Shutdown players will enjoy a gas-free gaming experience by using Immutable’s Passport non-custodial wallet.

With over 5 years in the making, Shutdown is inspired by classic role-playing game mechanics like Diablo and Path of Exile. The narrative mechanics triumph with its frequently changing storylines through Seasons. Players of the game would experience diverse storylines, challenges, and missions.

Players will participate in classic top-down 3-player co-op shooter to takedown rogue AI. As they play, they can acquire in-game assets that are supercharged mods that they can use to defeat opponents.

Shutdown is built by a congregation of industry veterans from Ubisoft, Disney, Pixar, and Netease. Houston Song is the CEO of the studio, and Adam McDonald is the Game Director.

“Partnering with Immutable brings a new dimension to ShutDown, enhancing scalability, efficiency, and NFT integration,” stated Song.

Shutdown and Immutable aim to bring the best of the two companies to the blockchain. As Shutdown expands and redefines the frontiers of web3 gaming, Immutable will help with NFT integration and scalability.

Robbie Ferguson, Immutable’s President and co-founder commented on the partnership: “We are excited to partner with Shutdown and bring them on to the Immutable zkEVM chain. This is a chain built by gamers for gamers and gaming studios, and Shutdown’s audience will experience what the best of Web3 gaming should look like.”
