New mobile MMO Ember Sword is another cryptocurrency game

    
5

Indie developer So Couch Studios is aiming to meld MMORPGs and cryptocurrency in its upcoming Android game Ember Sword. Billed as “the Blockchain MMORPG,” Ember Sword is “powered by the Ethereum blockchain,” and it allows players to “acquire tokenized cosmetics through gameplay, which they can then trade and sell for PIXEL,” which is both an in-game currency that can be used to buy items and land as well as an actual cryptocurrency that can be used as payment “on some 3rd party websites.”

Ember Sword also plans to provide a platform on which artists can create models, skins, and emotes that can be bought, sold, and traded in game, with compensation for their works provided through the same PIXEL currency. The devs haven’t announced an official release date yet, but there is a short teaser trailer for the game, which you can check out just below.

Anyone who downloads and attempts to play this game is a dipshit.

I hope there are more people playing it who understand and are comfortable with all that stuff than not, because otherwise it seems like they’ve just closed themselves off to a large number of potential players.

Yet another company that doesn’t understand the purpose of a blockchain. Blockchains are for applications that are decentralized and where trust is not a given. This appears to be neither. They just slapped some buzzwords on their game for the purposes of press and maybe suckering in people that heard they could get rich with cryptocurrencies.

They are using the term blockchain as a marketing buzzword. They understand it they are casting a net to get attention from news sources.
