The Ethereum-based TCG Gods Unchained blockchain game is about to get a new member in the former director of Magic the Gathering: Arena, Chris Clay. Clay has worked with Wizards of the Coast, the makers of MTG since 2016.
This fantasy-themed card game takes a lot of inspiration from MTG as well as the extremely popular Hearthstone. Immutable is the firm behind the game and is currently conducting its genesis where players can purchase the first edition of cards before the game’s release.
The company says it is the top-grossing blockchain game this year and has raised over $1.2 million from its initial card sale. CryptoSlate recently sat down with Clay and the co-founder Robbie Ferguson to discuss the plans for the firm.
In describing the gaming experience for gods Unchained, Clay said:
“I believe anyone familiar with digital CCGs or TCGs will be able to quickly adapt to and enjoy Gods Unchained.
There are new mechanics and keywords to learn and a brand new meta to explore with our take on the genre. A huge difference is because the cards are on the blockchain, you won’t find the typical loot crate and microtransaction gotchas that have come to be the industry norm.
We don’t succeed by getting people in, monetizing them as heavily as we can, and then looking for a new user when they leave. With the player base in control of the majority of cards, we succeed by bringing them to the game and integrating them into the community so they stay and enjoy the game for a long time to come.”
Ferguson went onto describe how and when Gods unchained actually utilises the power of blockchain and when it doesn’t.
