A few days ago we introduced our baby, BlockMagic, to the public. For those you who still don’t know about BlockMagic, it’s a multiplayer RPG taking place in a magical world in which players assume the role of a wizard.
As a wizard you can join our school, follow courses to learn new skills and improve your player or play some unique quests. There is a small twist, the game runs on the Ethereum Blockchain and all of your inventory, skills and artifacts are being stored as ERC-721 tokens which means that they can be transferred or sold to other players!
One of our initial plan was to use Vryx.org web-based technology to make the entire 3d game available on the web (which could allow us to use Metamask). Unfortunately, we quickly realized that WebGL would not be powerful enough to support our complex 3d scenes so we decided to use another engine to build BlockMagic, Unity.
Today we are very excited to announce that BlockMagic will be one of the first Blockchain-based game built with Unity. Our plan is to make it the largest dApp of the Ethereum ecosystem.
We are using some secure APIs to automatically generate an Ethereum wallet to new users and the keys are being stored on the user’s computer (not in our database) to avoid the risk of any hack. We see BlockMagic as a great opportunity to introduce Ethereum to new people and to grow the number of dApp users.
Using Unity also allows us to use more advanced 3d graphics, here are some of the first screenshots of BlockMagic:
We are working days and nights to release an early alpha version of the game as soon as possible to let you experience the beauty of BlockMagic. We encourage you to join our Discord and Reddit channels to follow the advancement of the game.
