Puzzle Royale Enters the Metaverse with a Playable Demo, Cinematic Trailer and $25K Tournament!

The team at Puzzle Royale knows that there is no shortage of projects popping up in the GameFi space, and with that comes a lot of responsibility on the players to research just how successful and fun the games might be.

With this in mind, the Puzzle Royale team is offering a publicly available, playable demo! Here, players will be able to get a feel of the gameplay prior to the official launch and potentially win prizes for participating in this exclusive early look.

There is no better way to learn about the value of the project than by actually getting it in your hands early and physically seeing it become a fully realized game. Being able to directly talk to the creators and developers of the game on their Discord or Telegram servers is also a massive bonus!

Game Demo

In this playable demo, players will be able to build a team of five heroes from a given catalog. And then, they will be able to play in the following game modes: Endless Wave and Boss Mode. 

When playing Endless Wave, users will be able to test the strength of their team. It’s all about survival and getting in the longest run! A stronger team will result in greater progress. In Boss Mode, players will need to do as much damage as possible to an enemy before the timer expires. 

Through this, players will be able to experiment with the various hero NFTs, observe their power, and figure out which lineup of heroes fits them best! Not to mention, there will be a greater variety of heroes to choose from in the official launch.

“A Game Style for Everyone”

Aaron Yee, Founder, and CEO of Puzzle Royale, made the following statement:

“Ever since smartphones have offered games, the relaxation and excitement of Match 3 games have always been a staple in the space.  These games have been played by the young and older generations alike, and we wanted to bring this kind of experience to the world of GameFi. This genre allows people to pick it up for a few minutes to relax, or to really dedicate themselves to advancing far in the game and showing off their achievements.  It truly is a game style that caters to everyone.

We’re really looking forward to offering this style of game in the ever-evolving Metaverse space to help usher in a new wave of players who are new to crypto gaming, and make that experience as easy and rewarding as possible.”

Will You Be Playing Puzzle Royale?

The Puzzle Royale team has fully embraced transparency, and it’s clear they wish to build a thriving community to help support and guide the direction of the project’s growth. To encourage community involvement, prizes are currently being given to contributing players and those posting creative game-related content on social media. The total prize pool for the event will be over $25,000 USD, rewarding the top 500 players, so you won’t want to miss it!

Guild of Guardians: A Big Overview

With Immutable getting more funds and riding on the success of their other titles (Gods Unchained surely does come to mind), it seems that everyone is now excitedly waiting for Guild of Guardians (GOG).

Without further ado, here’s an overview of the game based on what has been laid out so far!

Guild of Guardians: Summary

Already in development since March 2021, Immutable and Stepico’s joint NFT/P2E gaming project is a mobile RPG where players have to set up a team of heroes and compete in guilds to gain various in-game and P2E rewards. There are over 150,000 pre-registered emails already at the time of writing, with the Founders’ Sale already done way back in May 2021.

According to the game’s developers, they envision GOG as a highly accessible game. The game will combine high-quality gameplay, graphics, mechanics, and a sustainable P2E rewards system alongside an active, contributing community.

Android and IOS releases will be later this year. And from what we’ve seen, it’ll likely be a cross-platform P2E gaming title. Selected individuals have received invitations to test the pre-alpha version of this game this month, which means that the projected development timeline is right on schedule!

If everything turns out as expected, then GOG could potentially become one of the biggest titles in the space.

The Whitepaper

If you see a properly-written executive summary within a whitepaper, then you know that you’re in for a big treat.

GOG argues that NFTs add value to mobile RPGs because of the introduction of total ownership, innate scarcity, and baseline value (i.e., all NFTs will always have a market-based price), thus ensuring that there will be trade and interaction between the players of the game. It also mentions that the concept is already a proven model across different RPGs, and as such, it would be an attractive way to get players from all over the world into playing P2E games.

Guild of Guardians Game Roadmap

Here is a summary of what the game would look like later down the line:

  • 1st half of 2022: pre-alpha gameplay with limited features
  • 2nd half of 2022: alpha gameplay with limited features and the start of blockchain interaction
  • 1st half of 2023: beta gameplay with core features
  • 2nd half of 2023: full game launch

GOG also notes that they already have collected $4.6 million worth of revenue from guild NFT sales.

Mechanics

Like many other RPGs, team composition matters in a fight. Players would have to produce different setups based on synergies, skill usage, and any bonuses that they could get from the hero characteristics themselves.

In addition, GOG plans to introduce combo systems. With this, players could rack up massive amounts of damage by pressing the correct sequence of keys in a given situation. Sounds familiar, no?

At its core, one can easily imagine seeing the mechanics of World of Warcraft, Diablo, Ragnarok, and RAN Online within this game.

Given that it will be your standard RPG with an NFT flavor, GOG plans to add more modes in the foreseeable future. These include:

  • Guild Raids
  • Guild PVP
  • Land gameplay
  • User-generated challenges
  • Esports gameplay
  • Chances for socializing and trading
  • Other spaces that would expand the RPG experience

Tokenomics

GOG aims to release a cap of 1 billion Gems within 48 months of release. Here’s the breakdown:

GUILD OF GUARDIANS Tokenomics

As for their respective distribution, here are the details:

  • Both the Public and Private Sale tokens are intended to encourage the active use of the token and allow the community to vote for new in-game features.
  • The Team Share tokens are of the usual flavor: they will be unlocked within a 48-month period to incentivize the long-term growth of the game.
  • The Player Rewards would be pre-set every day and based on in-game activity.
  • Community Development tokens will reward:
    • In-game creators
    • Community moderators
    • Referrals
    • NFT purchases
    • Liquidity mining
    • Media outreach
    • 3rd party development (i.e., game expansions and spin-offs)
    • Competition and tournament rewards
    • Community participation
    • Partners and advisors
      • 22% will be opened up on Day 1, with the remaining 6% to be distributed according to the game’s needs.
  • Corporation tokens are to be used in the following way:
    • 50% for liquidity pools and other financing mechanisms
    • 50% to be unlocked over a 48-month period

This is a very detailed and transparent tokenomics breakdown by GOG. One can clearly see the basic outline of how the game’s economy will take shape in the months and years to come.

Also, there’s a great focus on community. GOG aims for the community to be an active party that does not just take away from the game but a party that invests and helps the game grow in a positive cycle.

Backers, Developers, and Partners

Stepico Guild of Guardians Studio

The game is developed by Stepico, a mobile games development studio, with a massive team of developers and artists who have worked on different titles in the past.

Yield Guild, Sandbox, NRG, and Ubisoft are among Immutable’s backers and partners for this particular project. Given that Guild of Guardians is among the most awaited things in the P2E gaming space, it would be sure to attract institutional investors and guilds of all stripes and sizes.

Social Media Presence

Just like any other game out there, Immutable has invested in a robust footprint for GOG. These include an official website (and whitepaper) as well as Medium, Twitter, Discord, and Facebook handles. The game’s social media team could also crosspost with Stepico and Immutable’s social media handles, thus ensuring that anything related to the game would have a huge organic reach.

The game has already done multiple marketing pushes and collaborations with different games and people. This is expected to continue even after the game launches later this year.

Final Thoughts

Just get the game out. Seriously, we’ll be playing it once it’s out in the open!

Do you plan to play Guild of Guardians when it comes out on mobile later this year?

The NEW Pegaxy Update is Here!

With the continuous flow of new updates and features, it’s safe to say that Pegaxy 1.5 is now up and running. Here are some of the recent changes to everyone’s beloved horse racing game!

Stats Based Racing

With each race in Pegaxy now housing 15 horses, the arrival of stats-based racing is more important than ever before. This means that the track conditions and the horse attributes will have an impact on your race performance. We can expect higher levels of competitive racing as a result of this. Additionally, it enables a more precise gauge of a horse’s potential win-rate!

This opens up many new mechanics in Pegaxy. Players will now have to consider whether their horses are suited to the track. And when purchasing a Pega, the stats will be a vital component.

Pega Level Up System

The new prospective leveling feature incentivizes players by increasing their Pega’s potential earning ability. In addition to this, it also serves as a welcomed burning mechanism. 

Breeders, guilds, and retail investors alike will now have to decide between their stables’ quantity or quality. A large stable of Pegas could provide to more scholars. On the other hand, a smaller, more competitive stable offers greater odds of making the podium.  

In addition, the leveling system also allows players to focus on crafting specializations for different horses. Of course, it’s important to remember that the tracks will remain randomized.

Regardless, this new feature adds more mechanics to the game, which would allow for more strategy-based and nuanced gameplay overall!

Live Change on Rent Rates

This gives guild owners more control over their rented Pegas. This is a wonderful tool in the hands of responsible managers. However, it’s essential to realize that unscrupulous managers could flip the switch and do wrong by their scholars. Yes, this is an unfortunate reality. Let’s just hope that we don’t get to see these incidents happen within Pegaxy!

At the end of the day, it’s undeniably a great tool in the right hands. 

Anti-Bot System on Rents

It’s high time for this feature to come online. This will give actual people a fighting chance to secure a scholarship. 

This, in turn, allows players who want to pursue the renter’s path to have a chance to be able to benefit from the thriving Pegaxy ecosystem.

Seriously, don’t we want more people (i.e., unique users) to play Pegaxy?

Concluding Thoughts

Will this new Pegaxy update increase the appetite for VIS and PGX? It all depends on the efficiency of these features in terms of introducing more investor and market confidence.

However, suppose one looks at these developments from an objective lens. In that case, one could see that these changes could potentially change how Pegaxy is played in the weeks and months to come.

Do you think that these changes would make Pegaxy more exciting? Will you enjoy playing the game more with these new features?

We hope that these new developments will lead to a more vibrant and active Pegaxy environment in the foreseeable future!

Philippine Central Bank to Pursue Digital Currency Project | Project CBDCPh

In what could be marked as a groundbreaking development in the Philippine digital economy, Benjamin Diokno, the governor of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), has announced that they will be pursuing a pilot central bank digital currency (CBDC) program called “Project CBDCPh.”

Project CBDCPh 

BSP’s CBDC pilot project will involve a limited implementation model that allows them to gain real-world knowledge and organizational capacity. In addition, as far as CBDCs are concerned, the project aims to identify use cases that would allow BSP to fix foreseen problems in the national payment system. 

This follows a study by the BSP in which they assessed the possible impact of CBDCs on the country’s financial system. They were able to identify wholesale use cases, which gave BSP the confidence needed to pursue this further. 

The Philippine central bank governor has acknowledged that multiple countries have already launched CBDCs, finished pilot testing, developed proof-concepts, or begun research on the concept. This provides plenty of room for international regulators to formulate relevant frameworks on how to adopt CBDCs into the global financial market as a whole.

Diokno has mentioned ways that a CBDC could help the general public:

  • Payment efficiencies, universal accessibility, cost reductions in operations
  • Big potential to open up the economy through scale and impact
  • Wide-scale, account-targeted (i.e. personalized) assistance programs
  • Cross-border money transfers and remittances

On the other side, he also mentioned the following challenges for the country’s financial sector and BSP:

  • Financial inclusion has always been multidimensional
  • Possible legal issues, especially for retail CBDCs held by the general public
  • A possible need to change the BSP Charter to accommodate said change
  • Correspondingly, a need for authorities to build skills and technological capacity to adequately implement and manage the risks associated with CBDCs

What does it mean for us in the P2E space?

General sentiment towards cryptocurrencies here in the Philippines appears progressive compared to other countries. Especially with the widespread adoption of NFTs and P2E gaming guilds. BSP’s CBDC research is a major plus. Having digital technologies play a key role in the nation’s economy may be a future prospect.

While this may not necessarily mean that the Philippines will adopt a digital currency, it shows a more positive attitude. And this is, by extension, is also a win for the P2E/NFT gaming sector.

With all things considered, are you looking forward to seeing the results of this pilot test? What do you think about the future of CBDCs in the Philippines?

Metadrace Project Closes Down in Slow Rugpull

It seems that March was the month of rugpulls – with Metadrace now biting the dust.

The developers of Metadrace, a game hailed to be a Pegaxy and Cyberdogz analog, seemed to have abandoned the project and left their investors and players in a slow rugpull move. The coin value plummeted from an all-time high of $0.21 (P10.5) to $0.0008(P0.04). And this all occurred within the space of a single month.

According to the original whitepaper, Metadarce was envisioned to be “a blockchain-based NFT gift for speed sports and enthusiasts fans, dog lovers, and the E-sports community,” where players can train virtual dog NFTs and earn through winning races.

Some signs of the rugpull started to appear on February 14, when the coin’s value slowly dipped. It took three weeks before the coin’s value went below $0.01 (P0.50) on March 7.

The developer quickly shut down player chat access to the official Discord on March 11.

The project’s Discord and Facebook channels are still up. However, there’s no more appreciable activity on these handles at the time of writing.

All in all, the project only existed for four weeks before it practically shut down.

Given that many are still recovering from the social and economic effects caused by the global pandemic, this rugpull represents a massive loss for the project’s investors.

Once again, this case serves as a timely reminder to do the needed background checks before putting money into P2E and NFT projects. After covering heartbreaking incidents such as CryptoCity, SpacePort, and the like, it is saddening to see that these incidents are still prevalent even as we finish the first quarter of 2022.

We here at P2E News sincerely hope that these kinds of rugpull projects never happen again in the foreseeable future.
