Sequence, a Horizon Blockchain Games platform, has entered into a partnership with Google Cloud to bring its full-stack web3 gaming development suite to cloud users. 

The goal of the integration is to make it easier for web3 developers to leverage web3 building tools through Google’s industry standard cloud computing platform.

Horizon Blockchain Games launched in 2019 with a $2.75 million dollar seed round. As of its Series A round in 2022, the company had reportedly raised $53.3 million over four rounds off the strength of its NFT/trading card game “Skyweaver” and tech stack.

Sequence is a “uniquely complete,” full-stack web3 developer platform with tools spanning wallets and accounts, marketplaces, smart contract management, analytics, indexers, relayers, node gateways, and plugins for Unity, Unreal, web, and mobile.

The new partnership with Google Cloud will feature full stack integration of the Sequence development platform.

Jack Buser, Director for Games, Strategic Industries at Google Cloud, said in a press release Sequence would simplify the game creation process for builders:

“Sequence gives game developers the freedom to focus on crafting exceptional gameplay for players. Through this collaboration, Sequence removes the complexity of Web3 technology, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for both developers and players.”

Greg Canessa, President and COO at Sequence, said the platform’s overall goal has always been to let developers “focus on making great games without having to understand Web3 complexity.”

“Unfortunately, what we’ve seen is that too often the complexity of understanding and building underlying blockchain infrastructure has taken cycles away from the creative process of making great games that people love, and that in turn has yielded some poor-quality experiences which have turned gamers off of the whole concept. Integrating Web3 shouldn’t be any harder than setting up a game server, and Google Cloud’s ethos perfectly matches ours.”
