Just wanted to introduce you to an awesome Multiplayer RPG crypto game called "Kingdoms Beyond", which is in Alpha right now. Unlike most other games out there, the dev of this game actually took his time to develop a playable demo without any pre-sale or other fundraising mechanisms. You know kinda Honest Cash, that is product first and funding later. You will find very very few such honest projects, especially in blockchain gaming industry. Just see the screenshot below to assess the quality of game.
The game will mainly revolve around your heroes completing quests, fighting monsters, collecting resources, utilizing their land plots to build various buildings such as their own homes and shops!! The shop owning part sure sounds cool!! So pretty much a RPG game which most of you must have played in one form or another. But the difference here is that whatever you own is actually your own and not devs. You can sell your stuff anytime you want. You can find rare items, equipment and freely trade with other players. You know what's the best part? It is that your heroes and equipment will be backed with ETH/DAI. So even if some black swan event happens, like market crashes or something, you are sure to get back at least some value back by burning your heroes and equipment. Enjin also enables that but it does it with its own token ENJ, whereas ETH/DAI has far more liquidity and acceptability.
Battle system will include heroes of different classes like warriors, mages and archers. And in each class there will be further variants. For example, possible variants of warrior class can be Paladin, Duelist and Death Knight.
And of course heroes will have different tiers of rarity, ranging from common to Genesis. Genesis is one tier above Legendary. Imagine how rare and valuable a genesis hero will be!!!!! Rarer heroes will also have better visual of skills. Like a common mage may fire a plain old boring yellow fireball, while a Legendary might use that same skill and fire a shiny blue fireball. That's some real advantage of rarer heroes!!
Battles will be turn based. Something like this.
So it will be strategy based rather than plain hack and slash or auto battles. More info related to battles will be released soon.
What good is a blockchain game which can't utilize the assets from other blockchain games? Afterall, one of the main advantages of using blockchain for gaming is interoperability!! So to honor that Kingdoms Beyond will allow you to use your NFTs in games such as CryptoKitties and Axie Infinity as pets in game. How cool is that!
If you would like to play the demo and claim your free hero in game then just register on site: https://www.kingdomsbeyond.com/?ref=siddartha and link your ETH address using Metamask. And you will get a hero like this in your inventory.
I've played and still play a lot of crypto games. And looking at the quality of demo, I can certainly say that spending your time to play this game will be worth it!! So make sure to register and claim your free hero. Even if you don't intend to play the game, you can still claim the hero and maybe sell it later. But I think once you are into the game, you wouldn't want to quit that easily!!
There is no pre-sale right now but there is one intended in September. But that will totally depend on whether dev is satisfied that he can launch the game soon. Otherwise he will delay the sale and work on the content first. Like he has done in past.
I hope you liked the introduction of Kingdoms Beyond. Do share your opinions in the comment section below.
