GG The Movie revolves around Seth, an aspiring professional esports player, who navigates the Philippine stigma and challenges in trying to achieve that goal.

When you hear or read about Web3, you’re probably thinking about NFTs, cryptocurrency, or video games. It’s probably nowhere in your word association that Web3 is going to be linked to the production and even creation of a movie. Metasports.GG, formerly SEAesport, a gaming and esports media house with deep roots in esports (who are also early natives to Web3), did exactly just that: invest and produce a movie about esports.

GG The Movie revolves around Seth, an aspiring professional esports player, who navigates the Philippine stigma and challenges in trying to achieve that goal.

Multiverse.ph just got recently invited to a special block screening of GG The Movie last January 31 which included notable personalities from the esports and web3 community. Leading man Donny Pangilinan gave a heartfelt speech about understanding the gaming community and giving proper representation about the struggles and reality of esports players. 

Before watching the movie, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Metasports, Joe Josue introduces their involvement into the movie: from investments, casting, and creating authenticity of certain aspects of gaming culture (eg. proper finger placement on WASD keyboards for first person shooters). We became curious and asked Joe some questions and he gladly answered all of them.

According to Josue, “We contributed because we felt we had the portfolio, network, and experience to give representation and soul to the industry and gamer experience. We’ve also seen the trend of games become movie universes, which as an IP studio, allows us expansion to a new content medium.

Josue also expanded on the integration of Web3 technologies tying into the movie. “For Web3, the team has explored digital collectibles with some amazing partners as a step to kickstart fans who want to be a part of the GG and Requiem IP (the name of the fictional video game within the movie) and universe. We’re excited to bridge gamers to new technology in this way— a sector we’re also very experienced in.”

With the call for authenticity and attention to detail, Josue was ecstatic with the community reactions during the block screening. “Many emotional moments, industry personnel cheering throughout, shouting at moments they approved and they felt seen. I’m confident it was a great litmus test for what gamers even globally could feel from watching the film.”

The public can catch GG The Movie at SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, SM MOA, and Cinema 76. Catch it while you still can!
