Recently, Zuckerberg, CEO of the international social media giant “Facebook”, unveiled the long-awaited new name of the company on social media – Meta. Zuckerberg also announced that this will be the starting point of the next chapter of the Internet as well as Facebook.
Thanks to the new name, the digital assets of Metaverse games and GameFi have skyrocketed overnight.
As a matter of fact, in the past few months, major capital and investment institutions have been attracted to set foot in Metaverse games since they had become the focus of the blockchain industry.
The “tipping point” of all this can be attributed to the nearly 100-fold surge of Axie Infinity.
This not only made chain games once surpass DeFi to become the main track. At the same time, the concept of “play to earn” entered the public domain, attracting more developers to join the GameFi sphere.
According to the data provided by DappRadar, as of October 2021, a total of 1043 game Dapps have been online across the network. Compared with the same period in May, the number of players has increased by 254%. And the top 120 blockchain game projects have a total value of more than 30 billion U.S. dollars.
However, while GameFi continues to exert its influence, it will also face a series of bottlenecks.
Entertainment is an element that maintains the long-term healthy development of GameFi
At present, most of the chain games on the market pay more attention to early positive economic incentives than their playability.
In the long run, entertaining and high-quality games are still key factors that determine whether GameFi can maintain a healthy development.
According to the report issued by Nansen, the development of chain games can be roughly divided into four stages. The current chain game market is still in the transitional period between the third and fourth stages. At present, although many 3A manufacturers are experimenting with higher-quality chain games, there are still few mature game products. Many of the games are expected to be launched, but in fact, the launch time is at an unknown far distant date.
Therefore, mini games still dominate the chain game market. They tend to sell and play with concepts at and the overall quality is not satisfactory enough.
Even chain games have attracted numerous players. In the future, as traditional game players continue to set foot in chain games, they will become more and more demanding about the quality.
To convince players to pay for chain games and accept play-to-earn, well-made game products and content are essential. This is the only way to overcome the current bottleneck in the GameFi market and bring it back to a state of incremental explosion.
Facing all the obstacles, how should we make a breakthrough in the development of chain games? Which game will detonate the GameFi market in the next round?
SpaceY 2025—a 3A chain game that will be launched this year
SpaceY 2025 is the first 3A tower defense blockchain game based on the theme of Martian immigration. Its story background is based on the Mars mission of Elon Musk. It is created by the Blockfish team with many years of experience in blockchain games.
The game strives to create a new virtual Metaverse to bring more new possibilities for the development and inheritance of human civilization in the future.
In this parallel world, every player can become the Creator and complete the ascension of human beings from carbon-based to silicon-based life. The oasis in Ready Player One and the cyberspace in Cyberpunk 2077 are becoming reality!
In terms of the gameplay of SpaceY 2025, the team has constructed a revolutionary idea: Not only will it bring an extraordinary blockchain gaming experience through its 3A game design, but it will also bring a fully competitive environment through its MMO Metaverse NFT tower defense nature.
The team has implemented a ray-tracing tool in the game similar to the one used by Unreal Engine 5. While ensuring that users can earn money while playing, they can also have a super-high gaming experience.
More importantly, SpaceY 2025 will be launched next month. This is undoubtedly blockbuster news for the current chain game market and many players.
In comparison, other 3A chain games developed by top teams, such as BigTime and Star Atlas, will not officially launch versions until the second quarter of 2022.
GameFi has profoundly changed the way people understand games. With the popularization of the concepts of NFT and Metaverse, players are shifting from buying game services to making profits through participating in game construction.
And the application of the “play-to-earn” economic model will further expand the advantages of GameFi and become a model for the global game field in the future.
At present, the core gameplay of SpaceY 2025 has gained favor from more numerous KOLs, and it has attracted more than 120,000 players and community fans from dozens of countries around the world.
We believe that BlockFish will become one of the leaders of the new generation of blockchain games after the official launch of SpaceY 2025.
As BlockFish’s first 3A flagship game, SpaceY 2025 may lead the next wave of chain game evolution!
