Tokyo, Japan / April 26th, 2022 - Screw the Metaverse. Japanese game developer MyDearest hopes to stop “metaverse” from being just an empty buzzword. How about real content? In order to do just that, the team has just announced its latest venture, Project: Gathering. The team has released three concept trailers for three different VR multiplayer games and MyDearest invites the gaming community to decide what game they want to see made. Players that participate in the event will gain access to the chosen game’s Closed Beta Test.

MyDearest have previously worked on titles: Tokyo Chronos, ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos and its newest upcoming title Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate making Project: Gathering its first multiplayer endeavor. Project: Gathering is its biggest project yet and they plan to involve the community in every step of the planning process.

The three games to choose from are:

  • Code: Camp - an open world fantasy game
  • Code: Gauntlet - an action MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena)
  • Code: Bell - a 4vs1 survival game

This is our biggest project until now,” states Alberto Moreno, Head of International Promotion at MyDearest, “We’ve been recruiting the best talent in Japan to make this game and to prove that you don't have to be the biggest company to make the best games.”

In order to participate in Project: Gathering players can head over to MyDearest’s official Discord Server. Anyone who shares their thoughts on the server will be entered into the project's “present campaign.” Rewards for the campaign will increase based on the number of people who join the server to participate. Rewards include: a Steam Gift card, a Logitech G Pro X Gaming Headset, a Razer Tactical Pro 17.3 Backpack V2, a Meta Quest 2 and a Secretlab Titan Evo 2022.
