Bold Point — Telegram AMA — June 3
On Friday, June 3, we had the pleasure to welcome to our Telegram chat:
We asked him questions about the development of Bold Point.
Some sentences have been slightly edited for readability but the meaning has been conserved.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Ruslan, Please introduce yourself. And your role with Bold point.
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Sure, My name is Ruslan & I’ve been in the game industry since 2013. In my career I developed from game analyst to CMO, which position I hold right now in Unifi Group & Bold Point. YaY Games is a part of Unifi Group, where we combine products, services & amazing people.
Right now we have tremendous set of products/services:
> Bold Point — our P2E RPG with auto-battler as battle system & strategy meta gameplay
> Smart Contract Builder — our B2B “in box” solution for smart contracts development
> Zeus — shiny-looking launchpad
> Loot — our NFT marketplace
These 4 truly form a beautiful ecosystem for crypto-game projects, so hope your guys will check them all.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Can you tell us more about the team behind Bold Point. Are there any interesting additions to the team to update us on?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: First of all for Bold Point development we have not only Unifi Group resources, but also a dedicated team of gamedev professionals, with average 15+ years of game development experience. In total, there are more than 30 members of the development team.
Secondly they are not only experts, but huge fans of crypto games & traditional RPG’s.
About Bold Point
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Give us an overview of the Bold Point project in a few simple sentences?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Bold Point is a P2E RPG which combines “classic” fantasy style with tasty auto-battler combat system and deep, advanced & very addictive meta-gameplay in the best traditions of classic strategy games.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What are some milestones achieved by Bold Point so far that you’d like to highlight?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: First we almost ready for release of Bold Point alpha, It will be from week to week & if you will check current BPT coin stats — market actively w8 for this
Also, we had listing on Pango & Trader Joe & prepering for MEXC
Well, as you know right now we have live demo of Bold Point, where you can taste battle system & how fascinating it is
In alpha we will have crypto mechanics, farming, new content for battle systems & a lot more assets to buy, play & consume. With some stitches of meta gameplay.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Do you have some images of the gameplay to show us. What do we need to begin playing?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point:Actually I think it tastes better, than play. So please check our demo right here.
Sneak peeks of the alpha version will be in official announcements in the next few days, So stay tuned.
But for the GAINS community I can share one already, This is inventory & characters managment + updated battle system screen. (You can compare it to actual live demo & check changes)
Q — Twitter user @ashes204bd: I read in your blog that to play in Bold Point I will need to build an army, but really how much will it cost me to build one? Can a full NFT army really be compared? If so, what will its cost be?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Well, it depends on the chain.
We will have sidechain with “demo mode”, where there will be no crypto-mechanics, and everything can be gathered for free. But, if you want to migrate to the main chain & unleash all of your progress to P2E activities — you must buy all unlocked content.
In other words players will receive unique mechanics to “taste” the game before spending any penny! Also the main chain will have F2P mechanics, that means the Bold Point intro threshold will be absolutely friendly for any players.
Q — Telegram user Jose Gamboa: There are no markets that focus solely on IN-GAME assets! LOOT is the first of its kind to be completely focused on Gaming NFTS. What is LOOT? What are the utilities that LOOT has? How does LOOT work?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Yep, Loot strongly focused on in-game assets. Not only NFTs, but any other types as well. But the big story is the Loot — “sub product”, of our Smart Contract Builder solution.
Every time somebody makes their own NFT marketplace/store with usage of our in-box smartcontracts for this needs — all assets from there will automatically “listed on Loot. So, Loot are more aggregator, than “stand-alone” NFT marketplace.
And that’s why it’s more interesting & complex story than “just another NFT marketplace, but for games”
Btw. we already have few games who using our Smart Contract Builder & you can check their NFT’s on Loot
Q — Twitter user @augustk95: You say that one of the big problems observed in NFT games is that they have a bad game design focused on winning, not playing. Can you tell us what Bold Point’s game design will be like? Will it be more focused on gaming entertainment rather than rewards?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Oh, like this one For sure Bold Point is about entertainment first!We have 2 levels of gameplay — battle system & meta gameplay. You can already check the Bold Point demo & taste our battle system. It’s truly competitive to even non-crypto autobatlers.
If we are talking about meta gameplay — it’s a deep dive into cross-players cooperation. For example — guilds can capture dungeons & set via DAO mechanics what monsters will be in this dungeon, players can choose dungeons depending on their own interest, and this choice directly affects how many resources will guilds achieve from captured dungeons. Part of these mechanics you will see in our upcoming Bold Point alpha & I bet you’d like it!
Q — Telegram user Troy: I’m really excited about the sneak peeks of the alpha version, but how can we access the alpha version? would this be available soon for everyone?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Yep, for sure. As I said before, alpha should be here in the coming weeks. Can’t wait for it by myself , Right now you can check our battle demo btw.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS:Cool. What should we look forward to in the future with respect to Bold Point, Yay Games and Unifi Group?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: So, in Unifi Group we have some huge milestones which which you must not miss:
— Bold Point alpha release
— Zeus 3.0 announcement & white paper
— Bold Point meta announcement & new road map/detailed whitepaper
— Special gamificated activities & new assets for Bold Point meta roadmap
— Tons of news about Unifi Group services developments & Guild building
^If we are talking about a short term perspective ;)
Q — Telegram user Irfane: Aside from the listing on Pango & Trader Joe & upcoming for MEXC, do we expect another listing in the near future? Such as another different DEX and CEX?
A — Ruslan from Bold Point: Yep, we have some more exchanges in plans. But listing will depend on market conditions. Right now is not the best time to “expand” via this pattern — better to focus on development.
Ruslan, thanks for coming into our community, and taking the time to answer our questions. I’m looking forward to exploring the alpha when it is released. Do you have any final words for us? Where can we follow you to stay updated? — Ayeley from GAINS
