The Metaverse is characterized by a three-dimensional world and a particularly immersive gaming experience, for which VR glasses are absolutely necessary. But, is it really the truth? Blockchainwelt previews 2D game NFT Worldwide Webb, which does some things differently and is currently exploding.
Should Metaverse be in 3D?
The goal of the Metaverse is to build a parallel digital world. Logically, this world must be in three dimensions. The two-dimensional worlds are reminiscent of Pacman and Tetris and are not very convincing. So the future belongs to immersive 3D worlds. At least that was the case until now.
Oddly named Worldwide Webb, the NFT game shows that it doesn’t need a truly compelling and immersive world to get users excited about the project. Worldwide Webb, on the other hand, convinces with a lovingly designed 2D pixel world and a wide range of options.
Just like the currently largest Metaverse Decentraland, Worldwide Webb is also based on Ethereum and attaches great importance to using the blockchain as widely as possible. In the future, other blockchains such as Polygon will also be integrated.

What does this mean in practice? Using Decentraland as an example, there is only a limited selection of NFTs found in the game – NFTs designed for Decentraland.
Worldwide Webb thinks isolation is nonsense because Web3 and the Metaverse thrive on openness and freedom. The pixelated newcomer therefore pays particular attention to interoperability.
Global Webb implements NFT collections
More and more people are getting excited about NFTs and the bigger collections are steadily increasing in price. Popular NFTs have long been bought for the equivalent of several million euros. The developers of today’s most popular NFT game want to provide a platform for diverse and highly regarded digital art.
Whoever starts the game not only sees a large number of players who look like a mannequin, but also players who look like well-known NFTs – such as CryptoPunks or Forgotten Runes Wizards.
To this end, Worldwide Webb developers have stored specific in-game collections. When a player goes online, they log in with their web wallet – such as Meta Mask – and can use the NFTs from the wallet in-game. , as long as they belong to the built-in collections.
Players not using NFT will have the neutral look similar to the model pictured.
Tokenization and plagiarism protection in Worldwide Webb
Simply integrating NFTs into the game would of course be too boring for the creators. Therefore, they decided to tokenize the confirmed NFTs. This means that non-fungible tokens are tied to another value.
Each owner of a CryptoPunk obtains additional rights on the Worldwide Webb and can, for example, meet other CryptoPunks in the rooms provided for this purpose, while all other players do not have access to them.
It’s surreal, standing outside a virtual bar, feeling anxious about people trying to get in…then walking in to find a group of wizards all cozied up by the fire.

The first image shows the exterior of the Thirsty Wizard – a pub that only Forgotten Runes Wizards owners have access to. Photo number two shows the interior with various helpers.
An NFT collection must be confirmed because anyone can hit any image as an NFT. This can lead to plagiarism that looks exactly like the original but is not part of the original collection.
Only one original NFT can be used on Worldwide Webb, rather than none. For this to succeed, developers must manually add corresponding NFTs to the game. In addition to CryptoPunks and Forgotten Runes Wizards, Cool Cats and CrypToadz can also be found.
Worldwide Webb’s NFTs are reserved
In addition to that, the creators of the game also sell their own NFTs. Just like in Decentraland, land and houses can be purchased. An in-game quest builder makes it easy to create smart contracts, turning a simple building into a shop where visitors can buy NFTs.
Additionally, digital art can be displayed, animals can stay in buildings, or simply serve as venues for events.
Due to Worldwide Webb’s focus on tokenization, items purchasable as NFTs still serve an in-game purpose. NFTs exist in-game in the form of abilities, furniture, clothing, and means of transport such as vehicles.
Along with CryptoWeebs and CryptoGF, Worldwide Webb has also released two of its own NFT collections, which of course can be used as in-game characters.
Webb’s global prices soar
Currently the game has no own token. Only NFTs exist – and their prices are currently exploding. The NFT Worldwide Webb Land collection, which offers apartments, currently has a low price of 3.29 Ethereum, which is equivalent to 7,500 euros.
In the past seven days, the price level of the Land collection has increased by 121%. According to Analysis by DappRadar the price of a large apartment has increased by 3,183% since December 14.
Just yesterday, a penthouse changed hands and reached a new record value of 70 Ethereum, which was over 168,000 euros at the time.
