How it's Made

Frontend -

We have used ReactJS combined with React Three Fiber (a wrapper of ThreeJS) to build this 3d experience. We have used Blender to make very lightweight models (~100kb), just geometry, no textures or UV. So the game is very performant. We have also used Zustand for state management, and react-three-rapier for 3d physics. We have also used NFT.Storage for storing those 3d models.

Backend -

We have used MUD to store game data, things like model position & colors are stored on the chain, and even multiplayer & player positions are stored and synced quickly on the chain.
