A Blockchain Game Fit for The Play-To-Earn Gods: An Introduction to PolyGod

Play-to-Earn games are ushering in a new era to the already massive gaming industry. With the global pandemic pushing more people online, many believe it was only a matter of time before an online revolution led by blockchain gaming began. Leading the charge currently are games like Axie Infinity, which featured a sale of their in-game assets (NFTs) for the equivalent of 1.2 million dollars, and Sandbox, a game similar to Minecraft that raised over 93 million for metaverse development amidst the Play-to-Earn excitement. However, these games present far more than just hype — they present opportunities. Blockchain-based, Play-to-Earn (P2E) games change gaming by creating an equal playing field, complete with asset ownership and rewards that correlate to the amount of time a player spends in a gaming universe.

Bringing our own unique gaming experience, we are excited to introduce you to PolyGod, a Play-to-Earn game that features gameplay similar to Clash Royale. PolyGod operates as a simulated, real-time strategy video game filled with battles, collector’s items, and other forms of strategic gameplay. To bring this concept to life, we combined elements of tower defence, multiplayer online battles, and collectible card games. Working closely with our team, we are confident that Polygod will capture the minds and computers of a wide range of players due to the level of graphics, gameplay, and earning potential the game delivers.

An Opportunity to Earn

Juniper Research’s annual report on the gaming market predicted that PC and mobile games would earn an estimated $132 billion in total revenues by 2021. As a result, players are now reportedly spending upwards of $130 billion on in-game assets. Unfortunately, despite these growing numbers, the value of in-game items means little outside of the game’s parameters. For players, this means they are theoretically renting in-game assets for the full price of purchasing them. Furthermore, there is no compensation for the amount of time and effort spent researching, upgrading, and building up their in-game assets and skill level, suggesting that a long-term scalable career in gaming is next to impossible. For us, this meant a large opportunity was still being left on the table.

PolyGod aims to address these concerns as a multiplayer PVP where players from around the world can come together to turn their gaming passions into assets by earning and trading within a real-money economy. We strongly believe that the mobile team PVP genre and blockchain gaming are a true match for the Gods (pun intended). Our reasoning is based on blockchains’ ability to enhance the game by making any in-game spend an investment opportunity, in addition to providing a deeper metagame and the level of complex strategy players crave. As a result, participating in the game becomes a play-to-earn opportunity rather than play-to-win, and game advancements can pay off in more ways than bragging rights. With players’ deeply entrenched familiarity with PVP economies, a real-world economy was a much-desired (and necessary) feature to address the concerns present in traditional gaming.

A World Built for the Gods

PolyGod’s gameplay features the Norse Gods, known from Scandinavian mythology that include characters like Thor, Loki, Odin, Hod, Tyr, and the others. These Gods are represented as nonfungible tokens (NFTs) cards, split into ten divisions. Each card comes with its own set of powers and special abilities that can be leveraged in the upcoming PVP PolyGod game. As players collect cards, each representing a God, spell, warrior or defense, they have the opportunity to participate in PVP battles that may last anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes. Players face off to gain Trophies, XP, glory, and Real Money in the arena as they defeat their enemies.

Additionally, weekly and monthly competitions will be held, with several being open to all participants. In these tournaments, battles will be capped at 16 players and four games, where the player who wins all four will receive 66% of the total pool prize (with a 10% deduction for the PolyGod cut) and the remaining 34% is attributed to the second-place player. Monthly tournaments are then available to any player who participates in at least three of the weekly tournaments. The more games a player gets involved in, the greater the chances for winning, the more MYNT tokens they can earn, and eventually, the more profit they will get to take home for themselves.

A Path to Victory

With strong community support combined with the unique Play-to-Earn experience PolyGod brings to the table, we are confident that we will provide gamers with the best of classic core gaming and blockchain mechanisms. With a little help from the Gods, we aim to further the gaming revolution, with endless opportunities to play, collect, and most importantly, earn!
