Kudelski Security signed as exclusive partner to explore and develop security standards in the metaverse

Star Atlas, a next-gen metaverse with triple-A game design and Unreal Engine 5 graphics built on the Solana blockchain, today announced an expanded focus on security to ensure consumer protection and digital safety in the metaverse. This multi-pronged initiative includes signing Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division of the Kudelski Group - the world leader in digital security, and the forefront leader in providing security solutions for major blockchain-based applications, exchanges, and ecosystems - as its security partner. Kudelski Security will perform ongoing audits and analysis to help ensure the integrity of the Star Atlas metaverse is maintained and both partners will work together to explore setting standards for web3 security.

"We are pleased to partner with the team at Kudelski Security to advance the digital security of our fast-expanding metaverse," said Michael Wagner , Co-Founder and CEO of ATMTA, Inc., the principal development studio of Star Atlas. "We understand there is a lot of skepticism when it comes to web3 and security, so we want to be proactive by partnering with one of the top cybersecurity firms to help make sure our community feels safe. Protection of assets is paramount, and we look forward to working with Kudelski Security to establish the best practices for security when it comes to web3 gaming."

As security auditor of record, Kudelski Security will increase the safety and security of the Star Atlas metaverse by testing the protocols and looking for potential vulnerabilities to be addressed. Star Atlas players will have greater assurance that the metaverse has been built securely and tested rigorously, and that Star Atlas has taken the necessary action to become the leader in the web3 space when it comes to security.

The relationship with Kudelski Security goes beyond the hardening of the Star Atlas environment. Star Atlas is looking to expand collaborations with the wider Group to focus on new standards that can help to transition companies and projects into web3, including security standards, tokenization, and best practices in web3 gaming. By developing standard technology and processes that enable safe and secure on-chain gaming, players will be protected from the hacks that currently plague web3 and some of the main barriers to wider stakeholder adoption will be lowered.

Andrew Howard , CEO of Kudelski Security, also commented, "Web3 is growing rapidly, and we are seeing more need for developing a security standard that is adopted across the industry to act as a framework. This is why we are excited to partner with a native web3 leader like Star Atlas and to come together to solve potential security issues before they arise."

In addition to Kudelski Security's blockchain and cybersecurity experience, the Kudelski Group is recognized as global leaders in digital security – with specialized expertise in encryption, anti-piracy, watermarking, cryptography, and digital rights management.

Executives from Star Atlas, the Kudelski Group, Kudelski Security, and NAGRA Kudelski are meeting during the World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland , to further discuss establishing a framework for securing the web3 ecosystem.

DeepWell Digital Therapeutics (DTx) has revealed the winners of the company's inaugural Mental Health Game Jam, hosted in partnership with Global Game Jam. Bringing together a community of global developers to create valuable therapeutic experiences through games, DeepWell's Mental Health Game Jam was created to inspire games that can entertain while simultaneously addressing stress, anxiety, and depression and foster support and understanding for those dealing with mental health challenges.

GRAND PRIZE | $25,000 USD

GAME: Inner Room

DEVELOPER: byebyesama

DESCRIPTION: "Inner Room is a game where you play three days of lockdown as a person dealing with depression, where his place of true elaboration is in his dreams. When awake, our main character must complete the most mundane tasks – waking up, eating, showering, and opening a window. In any typical game, these tasks would require just one click. Now you will need your whole keyboard to sort them out."

LINK: https://byebyesama.itch.io/inner-room

SECOND PLACE | $10,000 USD

GAME: Biotopîco
DEVELOPER: Everyday Lemonade

DESCRIPTION: "In Bíotópico, players can grow real trees using the Oxygen resource that is produced from their breath practice. We're partnering with OneTreePlanted.org to plant a physical tree on the player's behalf each time a digital tree is grown."

LINK: https://everydaylemonade.itch.io/biotopico

THIRD PLACE | $5,000 USD

GAME: Fumble

DEVELOPER: ComfyDev

DESCRIPTION: "Fumble is a puzzle game about how it feels to struggle to talk.
