TL;DR

Lightning Agar is out 🔵
Vote for new games 🕹️
We are coming to the Lightning Hackday in Munich ⚡️

Author’s note

It has been a long time since the last development update. This is due to many factors. First and mainly we have been very focused on the platform completion and release. As the main developer, I have seen myself with other obligations that drove me away from this project development.

However, we made it. We launched the platform on mainnet, we added lightning tournaments and we created a naked off version of the super Mario in lightning that gives you satoshis if you end the game. Now it is time for more updates and news

Games

We have added a new special game. We are happy to announce that we created a lightning network version of the famous agar.io where you can eat other players and earn their satoshis. We are also very proud to announce that this game is open sourced in our GitHub repository.

The game is easy to play. It cost 1000 satoshis to play it. If you eat other players, you get 750 satoshis. Those earnings go to your satoshis games profile, where you can easily withdraw them either using the web extension joule or pasting an invoice request. In order to link your satoshis games account to the lightning agar game is important to type your satoshis username right away after your lightning payment goes through.

Vote New Games

We have added a new section where registered users can vote for new games. This allows users to decide their favourite games. We have decided that every end of the month the votings will restart and the most voted game will be announced on our Twitter.

During the next month, we will try to complete and released the most voted game. Every game up for votes will have Lightning Network layer on top of the game to enhance a better-monetised gaming experience.
