Welcome to Around the Square! These articles highlight industry trends, projects on MSQ, and general news as it relates to the blockchain industry. Today, we are taking a look at 8 Amazing Games Coming to MSQ. Let’s dive in!
Blockchain and Gaming
Blockchain technology has a wide variety of use cases that impact the way we take ownership and possession of our digital purchases. Blockchain technology will not only impact ownership over our digital items but it will also revamp game economies and provide numerous opportunities for developers. We at MSQ feel that gaming is so important that we have even etched out a place on our homepage specifically for games! Let’s run through some of the most innovative games and development studios coming to MSQ!
Splinterlands is a digital, collectible card game built on blockchain technology. It is similar in concept to games like Magic the Gathering and Hearthstone where you build up a collection of cards, which have various stats and abilities to use them to battle other players in skill-based matches.
Gala Games (Town Star & Mirandus)
Gala Games is a powerhouse development studio working on Town Star and their upcoming MMORPG, Mirandus! own Star, is a deceptively simple-looking but incredibly deep farming simulation in which a user builds a farm to compete in weekly competitions. At various places, NFTs can be used in the game to provide bonuses but are not required to play, have fun, or compete.
Mirandus, the MMORPG/Adventure Simulator currently under development by Gala Games is working to completely redefine both the game development pipeline, as well as the gameplay model by putting the power in the hands of the players and giving them ultimate control over the in-game economy.
Axie Infinity is a digital pet universe where players battle, raise and trade fantasy creatures called Axies. To play the game players start by purchasing three Axies on the Axie Marketplace. The game is currently in alpha phase, but in the future players will be able to start playing without having to purchase Axies. Instead, they will receive non-transferable Axies that have a capped earning potential. After a player has acquired their Axies they can play the PVE adventure mode, battle with their teams in PVP or breed their Axies. All Axies that are earned through breeding can then be used to battle, trade or be put up for sale on the Axie Marketplace.
Rising Star is a card-based RPG where you work your way up from street musician to global megastar. The game has you doing everything on your path to stardom, from completing missions all the way to unlocking permanent fans in the form of collectible NFTs. The most intriguing thing about Rising Star, besides all of the care and thought that went into the game mechanics, is the ability for players to own their in-game assets. NFTs and special cards unlocked during playthroughs can be sold within the in-game marketplace. Blockchain and gaming open the door to a multitude of different possibilities for gamers and Rising Star does a great job highlighting these aspects.
