Game Overviews

From Webcomics to Multiplayer RPG: The Rise of Kaidro

February 27, 2024

Kaidro, an emerging name in the realm of digital storytelling and gaming, has recently entered a new phase of its journey. This transition is marked by its partnership with the Ronin Network, an alliance set to enhance its reach and immersion into the digital and gaming landscape. The collaboration is rooted in shared visions and ambitions, aiming to redefine user engagement in the ever-evolving world of online experiences.

From Digital Pages to Gaming Realms

At the heart of Kaidro lies its flagship offering, "Kaidro: The Awakening", its webcomic which has been captivating audiences on WebToon since December 2020. It follows Ava, a young contractor woman whose life on a mining vessel is upended by her spiritual awakenings and premonitions of grander destinies. This universe is not confined to a single platform but spans across the webcomics, animation, and upcoming post-apocalyptic story-based multiplayer action RPG that invites players into a universe torn between technology and spirituality.

From Webcomics to Multiplayer RPG: The Rise of Kaidro

The gaming segment of Kaidro, particularly through "Kaidro: Clan Battles," expands on this narrative, looking to offer players a near-isometric multiplayer ARPG experience. Here, the world of Kaidro aims to transcend the boundaries of traditional storytelling, as players select their clans and dive into a realm of faction battles, pitting mech wielders against formidable magic users. The game introduces elements such as the Bounty Hunt mode, where teams navigate competitive landscapes and otherworldly threats emerging from the Void.

Kaidro's Partnership with Ronin Network

The partnership with Ronin, a blockchain network developed by Sky Mavis, best known for its involvement with the web3 game Axie Infinity, is a strategic move for Kaidro. By aligning with Ronin, Kaidro taps into a burgeoning ecosystem that supports digital property rights, a crucial aspect for games in the Web3 domain. Ronin's commitment to expanding its reach and enabling gamers to assert their digital ownership aligns seamlessly with Kaidro's vision of an immersive, interconnected universe.

The collaborative efforts between Kaidro's creators, Peggy Chung and Robert Simons, and the Ronin network, reflect a shared ambition to pioneer new frontiers in digital entertainment.

As Kaidro prepares for its next major steps, the anticipation within the gaming and comic communities grows. The game, already available for wishlist on Steam, signals a new chapter in the saga of Kaidro, promising an experience where storytelling, gaming, and player agency intersect in unprecedented ways.

Blood Crystal in Eternal Crypt - Wizardry BC
Game Releases

Blood Crystal in Eternal Crypt - Wizardry BC

February 24, 2024

Eternal Crypt - Wizardry BC merges traditional role-playing elements with the innovative use of blockchain technology. Central to its gameplay is the concept of Blood Crystal, a unique and valuable resource found within the game's universe. This article aims to demystify Blood Crystal, explaining its importance, how players can obtain it, and its impact on the game.

Understanding Blood Crystal

Blood Crystal is a rare and valuable resource discovered in the Dungeon of Dudael. Its value stems from its ability to regenerate sacred artifacts, making it more sought-after than traditional in-game currency. However, obtaining Blood Crystal is not straightforward; it requires adventurers with a special ability to "alchemy" the stone by offering their blood.

Only a select group of adventurers possess the ability to alchemize Blood Crystal, and even for them, the process is risky. Each use of their alchemical power diminishes it, eventually depleting their ability to produce Blood Crystal altogether. This makes adventurers with alchemical capabilities extremely valuable but also introduces a strategic element of resource management.

Dungeon of Dudael: A Source of Wealth and Danger

The Dungeon of Dudael, where Blood Crystal is found, has been a blessing and a curse. Its discovery brought prosperity through the valuable Blood Crystal and sacred artifacts found within. However, it also unleashed monsters that threaten the kingdom. The dungeon represents a risk-reward scenario where players must balance the lure of valuable resources against the dangers lurking in the deeper levels.

Wizardry's Leap into Blockchain with Eternal Crypt - Wizardry BC

Gameplay Strategy: Managing Adventurers and Blood Crystal

Players act as guildmasters, leading parties of adventurers into the Dungeon of Dudael. The game divides adventurers into those who can and cannot alchemize Blood Crystal. Success in the dungeon requires not just combat skills but also strategic management of these adventurers. Players need to carefully plan their expeditions, considering the limited alchemical power of their adventurers and the increasing difficulty of the dungeon's deeper levels.

Blood Crystal plays a crucial role in the game's economy. It can be used to enhance adventurers' abilities, recruit new adventurers with alchemical capabilities, and more. This integrates Blood Crystal into the broader blockchain aspect of the game, where it becomes a tangible asset that players can earn, trade, and utilize, adding depth and strategy to the gameplay.

February 23, 2024

Earning $PIXEL tokens in Pixels has evolved from the initial method of farming resources and selling them for coins. This guide provides a detailed walkthrough on the new way to earn within the game, focusing on the $PIXEL token.

Earning $PIXEL In-Game

Earning in Pixels requires a strategic approach and an understanding the game's economy.

Post-tutorial, players should familiarize themselves with the game's economy, particularly focusing on completing quests. These quests not only aid in learning the game's dynamics but also play a pivotal role in the earning process.

Step 3: Engage with Hazel for Orders and Seeds

Hazel, whom is located in Buck's Galore is your go-to for buying seeds and understanding the orders necessary to earn $PIXEL tokens. The process involves:

  1. Checking orders to identify the required resources for earning $PIXEL tokens.
  2. Purchasing the corresponding seeds from Hazel.
  3. Planting these seeds on your land or communal land for harvesting.

Certain seeds, such as the Muckchuck, require players to reach a specific level (32) to unlock. Thus, progressing in the game and leveling up your farming skills is essential for accessing a broader range of seeds and earning opportunities.

Step 5: Completing Orders for $PIXEL Tokens

Upon harvesting the required resources, return to Hazel to fulfill the orders and earn $PIXEL tokens. The amount of $PIXEL received depends on the complexity and quantity of the resources delivered.
