Aftermath Islands Metaverse Begins Phase 3 of Virtual Islands
After successful Phase 1 and 2 sales of Metaverse properties with over 89% of virtual estate land sold out, new virtual islands bring capabilities like Player versus Player and collectible NFTs
Bridgetown, Barbados / Toronto, Canada – January 6, 2022 – Oasis Digital Studios Limited (“Oasis”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE: LQID / OTCQB:LQAVF / FRA:4T51) (“Liquid Avatar Technologies” or the “Company”), a global blockchain and fintech solutions company, focused on Digital Identity, integrated Avatars and the Metaverse, is pleased to announce that it has begun the 3rd phase of its rollout of Virtual Land in the Aftermath Islands Metaverse (“Aftermath Islands”) with new virtual land available for sale in its Themed Islands and Estate Islands.
Since going live in early November, over 3,000 unique customers have acquired virtual lands and other related NFT (non-fungible tokens), with over 22% making multiple purchases, as part of the Aftermath Islands Metaverse program accounting for almost 6,400 plots and parcels of virtual land. Over 89% of Phase 1 and 2 Estate Islands have already sold out and many other islands have been reduced to low inventory levels.
Phase 3 sees the introduction of new Theme-based virtual island play, as Smash Island will open Player versus Player (PvP) future capabilities, allowing players to take refuge and sanctuary on their owned properties. Collector Aisle will feature a range of sports, entertainment and comic book collectible programs geared to enthusiasts and Elven Inlet will create a land of wonder and magic.
Additionally, Phase 3 will introduce 10 new Estate Islands with a comic book era theme paying homage to some of the greatest heroes and villains of the industry universes. These include Parker Place, Banner Bay, Wayne Hideaway, Kent Enclave, Stark Shelter, Luthor Lagoon, Odinson Rising, Grimm Gates, Doom Reef, and Logan Refuge.
“The results thus far in the uptake and sale of virtual land in phases 1 and 2 has been excellent and we’re excited to be initiating the release of phase 3 of Aftermath Islands Metaverse,” said David Lucatch, Managing Director Aftermath Islands Metaverse, Oasis Digital Studios and CEO of Liquid Avatar Technologies. “The rise in activities for the metaverse supports Liquid Avatar Technologies’ digital identity and avatar strategies and opens opportunities to extend our product and services reach to the emerging multiverse marketplace.”
The complete Phase 3 release comprises over 7,500 parcels for themed, community and estate islands, with a list value of approximately $2,200,000 USD.
Limited brand and private island partnerships, similar to recently announced Vegas Island and Cannabis Cove, will allow consumer brands, entertainment, sports, Defi, fintech and other commercial organizations to build and manage their own experiences inside the Aftermath Islands metaverse.
Aftermath Islands is a planned metaverse, which is 50% owned and principally managed by Oasis Digital Studios Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. and consists of themed, community and estate islands. Additional assets such as thematic dwellings designed for each island, community and estate are under development along with other interactive items which will also ultimately be available for sale as NFTs. All such NFTs can be resold, at the discretion of the holder using 3rd party, non-affiliated marketplaces, and private sale programs.
Aftermath Islands will provide online users with theme-based first-person, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) experiences, quests, games, and integrated eCommerce activities, creating a virtual world supported by users and brands. Under its exclusive agency contract, Oasis will receive up to 30% of the revenue from all sales, including primary Virtual Land (“VL”) and items, a portion of land and item resales, property management fees, together with a significant grant of VL. The Liquid Avatar Mobile App is also slated to play a role to support digital credentials required to manage Aftermath Islands metaverse accounts and asset verification.
All Aftermath Islands’ players will also have access to create a Liquid Avatar account allowing them to manage their digital identity and certain ‘cross-over’ assets and activities connecting their in-game activities to their real-world activities and engagement. Potential opportunities include managing avatars, items, integrated Augmented Reality (AR) events and programs, and purchasing conventional items like fashion, trainers and consumable through KABN KASH and receiving exclusive bonuses, like matching digital assets for use in Aftermath Islands.
Aftermath Islands advises that in the coming months, updated white papers and technical reviews will be available, the initial governing counsel will be formed, and additional themes, new communities, and estates will open allowing players to own Virtual Land across a wide range of islands. For entertainment, financial, game, product, and other brands, select island environments will allow commercial operations and ownership, providing enterprises with the tools to create and support economic opportunities.

About Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited – www.aftermathislands.com
Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited is a Barbados corporation which is 50% owned by Oasis Digital Studios Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc.
Aftermath Islands as first described in the initial whitepaper published in 2017 and then subsequently updated, was based on the premise of a water-world with islands that represented destinations in a global virtual game. Since then, the Aftermath Islands metaverse has evolved and now represents exciting themed based islands, communities, and estates where players can experience a wide range of adventures and opportunities.
In Aftermath Islands’ virtual world, users can buy, develop, trade, and sell Virtual Land (VL), property and assets, like buildings, crafted items, transport, and other items all through NFTs, a non-fungible token that represents the ownership of virtual and other assets. Each plot or parcel of VL is unique and owners get to choose what content they want to publish on their VL. This can range from simple scenery and structures to an interactive game, store, warehouse, dwelling, facility, or destination. Users can purchase VL as well as all other goods and services in Aftermath Islands with CREDITS, the current code name for in-game currency, fiat and other authorized currencies, coins, and tokens.
Aftermath Islands is a shared virtual world, much like the Metaverse described by author Ernest Cline in his science-fiction novels Ready Player One and Ready Player Two. Expected to launch mid-2022, Aftermath Islands will allow users to connect and interact with each other, create content, craft, participate in activities and quests and play games. Aftermath Islands will have a virtual economy where users can engage in a myriad of in-world economic transactions as well as monetize the content, items, quests, and applications they build.
