Chapter 3 Release Ft. The Lava Game
A window into White Rabbit CH3 and an overview of Lava Game mechanics
Quick Intro for New Frens - What is Shibuya?
Shibuya is a Web3 native content studio and creator platform.
Our studio produces original IP, and our platform provides creators with tools and resources to make high-quality content, build community, and maintain creative control over their IPs by leveraging blockchain and AI technology.
White Rabbit is the first Web3 interactive anime series to tell crypto’s story. The short film is full of easter eggs and symbolism that’s intimately connected to the complex concepts of crypto. Directed by Co-founders pplpleasr and Maciej Kuciara, the series will feature seven chapters once complete.
The series follows protagonist Mirai on her journey down the crypto rabbit hole as she learns about the blockchain and eventually defends it. The plot explores general themes of self sovereignty, free will vs. illusion of choice, and the ability to build new types of governance and economic freedom.
White Rabbit converts passive viewers into active co-creators that contribute to the film's direction by staking producer passes to vote on varying elements of the plot, cast, creative direction, and more. The interactive nature of White Rabbit introduces a novel approach to building community around IP and to pick-your-own-path storytelling.
Chapter 3 is all about introducing conflict and chaos, we produced this Chapter during the 2022 crypto market crash, and wanted to document the real-time experience in a visually compelling way for our audience.
Easter eggs symbolizing recent key market events are portrayed in striking images throughout the chapter. The first viewer to screenshot all four easter eggs, tweet @shibuyaxyz and post in discord, will receive a free airdrop.
The plot is a cautionary tale of changing dynamics and unexpected events. Our audience helped us shape the story in real time and the markets helped us decipher it. We collaborated with our community to cast Azuki No. 3602 for Chapter 3, be on the lookout for her cameo.
The most exciting part of creating White Rabbit is our communities involvement and our ability to incorporate current events — we’re excited to see where the audience will take and shape this story over the next four chapters.
Chapter 3 introduces a new in-film gaming experience called: The Floor is Lava.
Players must connect their wallet and stake a Chapter 3 producer pass to start the game. Each producer pass provides 4 lives.
Your goal is to help Mirai get across the molten lava floor safely. You will be prompted to choose if she should jump right or left in the game. Mirai will advance to the next level if the correct direction is selected, if not, she will fall into the lava, and the game will restart. Unique Lava paths are created for each wallet until the game is beaten. If players have remaining credits after winning the game, they will enter a new instance with a new path.
As a reminder, the only way to get Chapter 3 producer passes is by staking your existing Chapter 1 and 2 producer pass pairs by the January 9 snapshot date. Unstaking for producer passes will be disabled from January 9 to January 17, when the Lava Game ends.
