Positive user reviews regarding the Alpha Release of the Pocket Dimension have typically been received according to the following themes:

- The quality of the metaverse; and
- The value of the metaverse compared to others.
The Pocket Dimension metaverse is a hyper-realistic digital world that is being built using the latest version of Unreal Engine in order to offer users a premium virtual experience. Each Pocket Dimension features one of eleven different environments including Archipelago, Countryside, Dale, Dunes, Fjord, Marsh, Savanna, Tundra, Woodland and Zen, as well as the aforementioned Genesis Moon environment exclusively for Genesis Membership holders. Each environment offers users various forms of utility including but not limited to hosting events with their community, integrating custom structures and adding digital assets.
Pocket Dimension is a private space representing an area size of approximately four acres in which parcels provide their owners with additional unique benefits such as being blockchain agnostic with wide NFT compatibility (Polygon, Ethereum, etc.), an extensive avatar system, a unique Non-Playable Characters host system and more. Landowners will also have access to the broader suite of utilities that HoK will develop over time.
“As the metaverse and NFTs continue to see rapid growth, it is important for HoK to make Pocket Dimension accessible to users, which is what we aimed to do with the Alpha Release. The positive reviews that users have delivered thus far are encouraging to our team at LGL, and we are thrilled that the Alpha Release has resulted in satisfied users and increased engagement on the Company’s Twitter platform,” said Dorian Banks, Chief Executive Officer at LGL.
