Have you been wondering what ol ‘Peter Molyneux have you been doing lately? Well, in a move that few will find surprising, the infamous designer is throwing himself into the world of blockchain gaming and NFT shit. His next game, Legacy, is completely based on technology and “crypto games”.
Molyneux, who once got a group of people to touch a cube for fun, announced yesterday on the weekend Galaverse by Gala Games in Las Vegas that your company’s next video game is Legacy, which is described as a “blockchain business simulator”. Raise your hand if you knew a Galaverse was taking place in Las Vegas.
According to Molyneux, he and his company …22 cans“He had been working at Legacy when he was contacted by people from Gala games about the possibility of doing something powerfuld by the blockchain. Result Legacy it was a perfect fit for “crypto games.” As Molyneux explains, “all the mechanics of Legacy it was tailor-made for the blockchain environment. “How interesting ..?
In a blog post by Gala Games and Molyneux, they explained what Legacy it really is. Or at least tried to explain …
In Legacy, players will create buildings and digital products from thousands of available parts. These plans are then manufactured by an “army of workers” and then players are free to trade “anything and everything” with other players around the world to “dominate” the open market.
Apparently, there will be events and competitions in the game that will reward players (maybe one day …) with money and other prizes. But before you start “playing” this “game”, you will need to purchase a Land NFT before you can start your own in-game blockchain business. And all of this will be powered by a new cryptocurrency, LegacyCoin, which exists on the Ethereum blockchain.
Legacy and another recently announced FPS, Last expedition, are described by the creators and Gala Games as “play to win” with the idea that players can create content and digital goods and then trade or sell those things through the blockchain to make money. Which is an interesting idea that has been around without blockchain for years in various games like CSGO, Roblox, and more.
Blockchain technology mix Y Video games have quickly become a hot new idea. among editors and developers
looking to make a quick buck wanting to innovate and change the way players interact with games. We recently saw Ubisoft join the NFT train., although as usual, Most people’s response was a mixture of confusion or disgust..
NFT, blockchains and cryptocurrencies have been heavily criticized by many in recent years for a number of reasons, including the horrible amount of e-waste created by digital mining facilities, the DC miners have put in chip shortage and of course, the fact that all energy blockchains potentially consume is accelerating global warmingg and is extremely wasteful.
But ignoring all of that, much of what NFTs and blockchains promise, the ability to create and sell digital products in games or virtual worlds, already exists and has existed for years without the technology burning the world. But as long as there are people willing to accept all this, there will be people like Molyneux willing to invest in it.
