Wilder World Welcomes Racing Gaming Legends Aristotelis Vasilakos and Marcus Reynolds


As the digital landscape of gaming evolves, the importance of getting web3 gaming right has never been clearer. With our community of Wheel holders venturing into the exhilarating races in Wiami for the first time, we stand at a pivotal moment in our quest to deliver unparalleled gaming experiences. To achieve this vision, we are proud to announce the addition of two powerhouses to our Wilder Wheels team: the legendary Aristotelis Vasilakos and the phenomenal Marcus Reynolds.

Meet the team

Aristotelis Vasilakos brings with him a rich legacy from his illustrious 15-year tenure at Kunos Simulazioni, an Italian software development studio renowned for its driving simulations. As one of the creators behind Assetto Corsa - hailed as one of the world's most popular and realistic sim racing games - Vasilakos has established himself as a luminary in the realm of virtual racing. His contributions have captivated millions of players worldwide and solidified his reputation as one of the most trusted names in sim racing and game development.

Marcus Reynolds served as Director of Physics & AI for the Simbin Development Team since its inception in 2003 and boasts an impressive portfolio with credits on 11 games, including notable titles such as Dakar Desert Rally and the WRC series. His expertise in shaping the landscape of racing simulations, combined with his experience as a race car driver in real life, sets a high standard for realism in gaming. With a proven track record of excellence and innovation, Marcus' contributions will undoubtedly elevate the gameplay mechanics and overall realism of Wilder Wheels.

A message from the Wilder Wheels team

"This initial release of MIW is just a hint of the incredibly vast and deep gameplay the Wheels team has plans to deliver. Our main belief is that there is no such thing as a perfect gameplay for all people. There is never a single decision that can make something successful. With this being said our goal is to deliver experiences to cater to all demographics and skill sets.

We are aware that we cannot succeed by focusing on just one solution. It’s not about having the best drift simulation, or the best track races, or the best pit stops. We need to take care of all the small details and make the sum of them better than any kind of single focused gameplay."


How we will achieve this

"We are lucky to have what I believe is the most positive thinking, talented and helpful development team. It’s amazing to be able to design the gameplay and to know that we can trust our devs to make it happen in the best possible implementation. So a big applause to them. We also have amazingly helpful and talented artists on our Wilder World team who are always willing to help us from the artistic point of view. Taking the audacious road has always been the path Marcus and I have taken over 20 years experience of working together. With Wilder Wheels, you will see the best of our experiences in our most audacious venture yet.” 



As the adrenaline-fueled races in Wiami beckon, this addition to our Wilder Wheels team signals a seismic shift in the realm of web3 gaming. The whole team is incredibly excited to take the Wilder Wheels industry to the next level. With Vasilakos and Reynolds at the helm, we redefine the boundaries of realism and excitement in gaming ensuring that every moment spent traversing Wilder World's digital highways is an electrifying adventure. But hold on tight, because that's not all. We have been working behind the scenes on a DAO proposal that will massively upgrade the Wheels game mechanics and in-game economy. We are very excited to share this with all Wilders in the near future.

Finally, WW update 0.3.0 is right around the corner as more and more Wilders join us in the streets of Wiami. Do you have what it takes to compete? We'll find out on the tarmac.

The Wilders salute you.
