Indie designer claims to have created CryptoZoo in “Few Hours” for Logan Paul

Indie designer claims to have created CryptoZoo in Few Hours for Logan Paul

You may now play a game that closely mirrors Logan Paul’s CryptoZoo design. RealZoo is a free game developed by Yipy, an independent game developer, that contains no cryptographic components.

Yipy stated in a video that RealZoo took him only “a few hours” to construct and release. RealZoo users can join in with their Gmail accounts and obtain free tokens to spend on eggs that will hatch into a variety of animals. These creatures can then be “burned” to produce more tokens, or crossed to produce hybrid animals.

However, those coins are not on any blockchain and cannot be exchanged for actual money. Users in RealZoo passively gain tokens by keeping their animals for longer periods of time. More impatient players, on the other hand, can use a credit card to buy tokens and hatch more eggs faster.

CryptoZoo, a project Paul has been working on since early 2021, was inspired by an animal breeding game. However, Paul particularly touted the NFT-based game as “a really fun game that makes you money,” in contrast to RealZoo.

Paul got himself entangled in yet another controversy after YouTuber Coffeezilla launched a three-part series stating that Paul’s blockchain game CryptoZoo was nothing more than a cunning fraud. The project’s NFTs and ZOO tokens have been purchased by investors and potential users, but the game has yet to be produced.

If you tried RealZoo, you found it to have simple signup and login processes, speedy breeding, and art that was possibly better than Paul’s modified visuals.

“Now if you just had a criminal record, you’d be qualified to go work for Logan Paul,” Coffeezilla said in response to Yipy’s RealZoo video.

What is CryptoZoo’s excuse for disappearing from its social media platforms since the spring of 2022, and for taking so long to complete work on what appears to be a reasonably simple, browser-based card game with a cryptocurrency token? To begin, former CryptoZoo engineer Zach Kelling tells Decrypt via direct chat that his team of 30 engineers owes Paul and his firm $1 million for their work on CryptoZoo and that the game would not be released until they receive it.

After a contact Kelling about his experience working for CryptoZoo, he said, “So far, we have all been scammed.”

Paul countered these claims in a video response to Coffeezilla earlier this week, stating that not only is the CryptoZoo game still in development, but that he wants to sue the YouTuber for defamation. Furthermore, he indicated that he did not believe Kelling employed 30 engineers to design the game’s code, but rather merely three. Decrypt has contacted out to both Paul and his manager, Jeffrey Levin, for comment, but neither has yet responded.

RealZoo may appear to be a reasonable success, but was it created using crypto components at the same time?

No way, argues a 30-year video game industry veteran who is presently working on a Web3 game. He asked Decrypt for anonymity in order to avoid adding to the ongoing Logan Paul debate.

The development of a blockchain game—or any game, for that matter—can take anywhere from months to years, depending on how complex it is. However, developing Web3 components like as a wallet connection function or NFT assets correctly “takes significant work.”

The cost of developing a Web3 game might vary substantially. A 2D card game may be made for far less money than a AAA shooter, which can easily cost millions of dollars.

The Web3 game environment was defined by the creator as “the Wild West with a lot of experimenting.” We’re improvising as we go along.
