Peter Molyneux, the Fable series game developer who got so infamous that he stated “I no longer have a reputation in this industry”, has revealed his new Legacy game to the world. The game with its seemingly ironic name is a business simulator in which players buy land, start a business, create factories, and sell products to other players in a theoretically bustling economy.
Apparently all of these things will be bought and sold with LegacyCoin, the in-game cryptocurrency based on the Ethereum blockchain that serves as the play-to-win impetus of the entire operation. Players will first buy LegacyCoin with money or other crypto, then buy a land NFT to start a business. The land is currently not available for sale at this time, but is based on real world locations in the UK, including London.
The NFT component apparently doesn’t end there. While the details and specifications are decidedly vague, it appears that their products are assembled using NFT; Legacy was originally released as a build-anything game. Now it appears that those individual parts are NFTs that you are using to create your own NFT product to sell through an in-game economy.
“You can build anything” a developer said about Legacy in 2019.
“We wanted to make a game about building things. Peter loves the idea of other people building things; he wants other people to experience it.”
Start small, but little by little, turn your city into an empire. Create your own products using thousands of unique pieces. Legacy gives you access to rare and unique NFTs. The most creative and successful business can imitate those creations. Your creativity is your final product. You can automate your pipelines and fill your city with loyal workers. Trade thousands of items with other players using LegacyCoin.
Crypto spending may not end there, as gaming companies require equipment to function. With enough equipment, facilities, and workers, games can create a host of cool products and things to bring to the game market. The details are vague, but it appears that your creations are being sold as NFT in the market and you earn cryptocurrencies based on the success rate of each sale.
The idea here is to attract players with the prospect of winning a cryptocurrency in the game that could be traded in another market, while also increasing the value of the cryptocurrency with more operations. It is a monetization environment where the actual payment currency can fluctuate in value and the hope is that it will skyrocket, thus generating more money for developers with each purchase and exchange.
Legacy was actually the subject of an older Redbull Gaming video documentary from 2019 before the game’s monetization and commodification scheme was announced:
Here is more information about LegacyCoin crypto:
