Blockchain Gaming: When developers don’t get anything on the chain

0xUniverse – No cats, but in the galaxy

“0xUniverse is the next generation blockchain game in which games build spaceships, explore the galaxy and colonize planets.” With this phrase, blockchain gaming developer 0xGames is introducing its title 0xUniverse on its website. The aim of the game is to explore spaceships, build them and finally discover planets with them. The planets serve the purpose of resource miners. In other words, as soon as they are populated, resources are generated at a certain rate. These in turn are used for the research and construction of new spaceships. After that, the process is repeated again and again.

The planets can be traded, similar to the dApp Cryptokitties. There are different platforms for this. One of the better known is the OpenSea portal. Assets from a wide variety of games can be bought and sold here, just like on eBay. Prices range from 0.16 cents for an ordinary planet to $ 2,206 for a particularly rare planet. The similarity of the game principle to that of the concept of Cryptokitties cannot be overlooked. You pay a certain price in the cryptocurrency ether (ETH) and get an ERC-20 token for collecting. With a little skill and luck, trading can make a profit. It’s a principle that many blockchain games use. It is hardly possible to guarantee long-lasting gaming enjoyment because the content repeats itself quickly; 0xUniverse is still suitable for a change in between.

Greetings from Axie Infinity – Tamagochi

Breed, collect, fight, and take care of unique monsters. Again, the approaches are not new, which is not to be judged in itself. Axie Infinity describes itself as “the first blockchain game with animated characters and rich, intense gameplay”. The start of the game is similar to that of 0xUniverse. You buy the first monster for a small amount on the in-house marketplace and a piece of land in which the monster will live. This area can be equipped with various items, which give the monster small advantages. Whether you collect material, fight against opponents or design the home of your monster is up to you. Here, too, you can cross two monsters together and create a new species. Depending on the parents, the egg takes a different amount of time to grow into a complete monster.

The eggs can be traded in exactly the same way as the monsters, objects and properties. Axie Infinity comes as a so-called idle game. Most of the game runs automatically, so the player only has to intervene occasionally. In addition to the actual game, the focus here is again on the crypto-economic part of breeding monsters and, if possible, selling them again profitably. Long-term motivation is again questionable here, since there is neither a stimulus for advanced gaming nor an appealing concept for a long-lasting gaming experience.

Hashrush – real-time strategy meets blockchain gaming

Real Time Strategy Games (RTS) or real-time strategy games already have their playful focus in the name. Well-known games of this kind, such as Starcraft, Age of Empire or Warcraft, rely on a tried and tested combination of resources to build buildings and units and to defeat his opponent both economically and militarily. And it is precisely this recipe for success that Hashrush also relies on. Starting on a planet with a main base, you are thrown directly into the game. The player trains workers and sends them out to collect resources. These in turn are used to build new buildings and to research or train new objects and units. But unlike the classic (multiplayer) RTS, the game is not played against real people, but against computer-controlled opponents.

RUSH token as game currency

The aim of the game is to build a functioning infrastructure to mine so-called Crypto Crystals. The player faces a continuous threat from opponents. They try to steal the laboriously captured crystals and destroy the player’s buildings. The crypto aspect is reflected in the in-house RUSH token. This is based on the ERC-20 standard common in blockchain gaming and serves as the game currency. The tokens can be earned in different ways. By mining the Crypto Crystals you climb up on the leaderboard and can win RUSH at regular intervals. Another option is to make unique items and sell them to other players. This is currently happening on the game’s marketplace.

Hashrush is currently in pre-alpha status and is still at the very beginning of the development process. But you already get a lot for that. Graphically, the game clearly stands out from the competition on the blockchain gaming market. In terms of content, there are still many issues, but the scope does not have to hide given the early stage of the game. That’s what GamesFinest magazine thought, which Hashrush 2018 voted the best innovation of the year at Gamescom.

Conclusion: full-blown blockchain gaming is still a long way off

In addition to these examples of blockchain gaming, there are of course many more. Some of them better known, some less so. But many, if not all, have something in common. It usually fails because of financial means or communication. Many projects are funded out of their own pockets or try to stay afloat through rash ICOs. If an ICO is successful, the projects are usually further developed; however, communication with the community often suffers.

There are, of course, promising approaches, including Hashrush. However, these projects are often still in alpha status or only as a concept or prototype. This discourages many potential users, as early access, i.e. buying or investing in unfinished games, has been badly discredited in recent years. And at the latest when communication is poor or missing, even experienced crypto experts jump off. It remains to be seen until a major industrial player jumps on the blockchain technology. Ubisoft, one of the market leaders in the gaming industry, already announced plans to incorporate blockchain into its games in the middle of last year. Therefore, it is only a matter of time before you will see an AAA crypto title from an established publisher.
