Wisdom Gaming is launching a new development division Wisdom Labs to expand its Web3 offering to other game companies.

Bloomington, Minnesota-based Wisdom Gaming is an esports and gaming event broadcasting and production company with a location in the Mall of America in Minnesota. And now it’s branching out into blockchain services, where it will provide Web3 technology to other game companies.

Wisdom Labs’ first assignment is to help Kingdom Studios develop and build blockchain services for its Defi Kingdoms player-versus-player game mode expansion.

Wisdom Labs enhances the parent company’s internal broadcast and product offerings and provides services within the Web3 space for brand partners. Across the company, the teams can provide services related to broadcast production, augmented reality, virtual reality, mobile game development and web3 integrations.

Blockchain game development is the most sought after service from third party partners and why Kingdom Studios engaged Wisdom Labs as a partner to develop their PvP game mode. For broadcast production, Wisdom Labs exists to enrich Wisdom’s current broadcast offerings with elements such as augmented reality, Twitch extensions, and virtual reality that appeal to our communities and capture the attention of fans.

For Wisdom’s internal work, the Wisdom Labs development team creates tools and products designed to enrich broadcasts and expand the offerings around unique activations for viewers and guests at live events.

For external partners, Wisdom Labs will act as an extension and bring Web3 projects to life, be it blockchain game development, Web3 integrations, smart contract development and more. An example is the partnership with Kingdom Studios, where Wisdom Labs will develop the PvP game mode for DeFi Kingdoms as a mobile companion app, including developing the creative vision, building the system architecture, testing the gameplay and launching the game mode.

“Wisdom Labs was founded to build on the incredible work our broadcast and events teams have become known for in the industry,” said Ian Anderson, Chief Innovation Officer at Wisdom Gaming, in a statement. “Our high caliber team empowers those internal teams to push the boundaries of what’s possible while allowing our partners to enter the space in a safe and measured way. Whether it’s augmented reality, a Twitch extension, or a QR code search, we’re developing tools that will change the way our communities experience gaming and live events.”

The Wisdom Labs partnership was born from a shared belief that no single approach works for creating and sustaining all gaming communities.

“We are excited to partner with Wisdom Labs on the highly anticipated PvP game mode,” said Frisky Fox, founder of Kingdom Studios, in a statement. “By working with the Wisdom team, we can leverage their significant creative and development experience to build out a feature our community has been eagerly waiting for. We know the expansion is in good hands, allowing us to focus on improving and expanding other aspects of Defi Kingdom.”

Wisdom Gaming employs approximately 80 people in total and has also recently opened Wisdom Gaming Studios, a production and event venue. Later this month, Wisdom Gaming will host Gold Rush: Totally Excellent Weekend at Mall of America, where some of the most notable names in Rocket League will compete to become the Gold Rush champions.

Wisdom Gaming has created Wisdom Labs for Web3 services.

Wisdom Labs will be both a creative agency and a development team. It uses technology to take projects from idea to development, all under one roof. The service offerings include web3 integrations, smart contract development, security audits, token development, non-exchangeable tokens (NFTs), blockchain-based mobile game development, decentralized app development (Dapp), and support for in-app purchases.

In addition to Web3 services, Wisdom Labs offers Web2 capabilities, including full-stack development, UX/UI design, Twitch extensions, and ecommerce platform development.

Wisdom Gaming provides export production services for export organizations, including Torrent and the Minnesota Varsity League (MNVL), spanning professional, amateur, and school league levels. It was founded in 2019.

With Wisdom’s continued growth since 2019, the company wanted to continue to improve capabilities for both internal teams and external partners. Wisdom Labs was established to provide Wisdom Gaming and its third-party partners the opportunity to enter the Web3 space in an authentic, secure, and meaningful way.

Anderson has been involved in the crypto world for years as an entrepreneur with a genuine passion for the industry. Anderson and Wisdom Labs project manager Adin Zweigbaum wanted to create Wisdom Labs to demonstrate the positive impact of Web3 and to debunk some misconceptions in space.

“The long-term vision of everything accomplished in DeFi Kingdoms includes partnerships and collaborations with individuals and groups,” said Dreamer, president of Wisdom Gaming, in an email. “This partnership with Wisdom Labs represents our priority for every major feature designed and executed with great care and attention to detail.”

Dreamer added: “A game committee focused on PvP with game leads from Kingdom Studios and Wisdom Labs meet regularly to make progress and ensure the vision stays on track. I have seen first hand the passion for DFK from the Wisdom Labs team and I am excited about what we are delivering to the community together.”
