Solana Blockchain Based Aurory launches Interactive Web3 Game Prologue to Adventures
The Prologue to Adventures, which is the first major long-term milestone of Aurory, the leading game of the Solana ecosystem, has been released. Starting today, individuals who possess an Aurorian (Aurory NFT) will be granted entry to the Prologue. The complete game launch is planned for a later time in the summer. The purpose of the Prologue is to establish a base for the game’s expansion and adaptability in the future.
In a statement, Jon Campeau, who is the executive producer and director of production at Aurory, expressed his excitement for players to finally get the chance to play Adventures, calling it a significant milestone. A great deal of effort was put in to get to this stage. Prior to moving forward in this direction, we have verified that the basis of the Prologue is stable.
In the Adventures Prologue, Blanche, a village located in the cold highlands of Tokane, will be introduced to players. This village has a significant role in the Adventures story. The village’s main attraction will be Speed Blitz, which offers visitors the opportunity to participate in one-on-one battles that resemble “Automated Pokemon-style” fights.
To participate in a Speed Blitz battle, gamers need to communicate with an NPC (non-playable character) who is willing to evaluate their fighting skills. After that, they have to select a specific amount of $AURY to bet on the result of the match. The non-playable characters are highly motivated to gain recognition and will go to any lengths to hinder players from climbing the rankings. Team Bull and Team Bear make up the group. The members of Team Bull are individuals who are passionate about Neftie, enjoy taking risks, and crave excitement. The members of Team Bear are strategic and aggressive, while also being cautious in their approach.
The first meeting with Kitty, an Aurorian with extensive knowledge, will give players the chance to earn her approval. To produce Neftie Eggs, players can use the Incubator located north of the village’s main plaza. It can also be accessed remotely through the heliOS dashboard. In an email to GamesBeat, Campeau mentioned that the game was initially inspired by the Final Fantasy franchise and its exploratory gameplay.
Their combat system and logic were heavily influenced by Pokemon. Campeau stated that Aurory was formed by merging Final Fantasy and Pokemon. Adventures’ future direction is partly influenced by the social MMO element found in games such as Runescape. Aurorians will gather, dance, and unwind at the central plaza located in Blanche. A conversation window has been added to allow players to communicate with friends and meet new players, in response to requests from the community. Moreover, there are several interactive kiosks located in the main piazza. Players will be able to exchange SOL and USDC for $AURY through a trade kiosk, and a marketplace kiosk will enable them to purchase and sell Nefties, eggs, and accessories within the game.
Aurory and its dedicated community have a promising future that extends beyond what is introduced in The Prologue. Aurory’s creative director, Stephan Carmignani, said in a statement, “Our hope is that it will grow and evolve into a light MMO experience as the story progresses, and we look forward to its growth in the coming years.” Aurory was founded in April 2021 and currently employs 63 people. So far, the organization has gathered a total of $108 million. Users are given ownership over their gaming assets through the utilization of Web3 technology in the game.
“This is essential for any game with a collectible item/character system that includes a rarity element,” said Campeau. The Pokemon card scandal could have been avoided if NFTs were linked to the cards. NFTs are finite and trackable due to the transparency of the blockchain. This aligns incentives between game developers and players by holding game developers accountable and incentivizing them to maintain a healthy game economy, while making players feel more invested in and connected to the game.
Furthermore, Campeau mentioned that the firm developed fresh innovations like SyncSpace, aimed at offering a smoother gaming experience to users who don’t possess a digital currency wallet, which is mandatory for trying out several games. The inventory management system is a combination of on-chain and off-chain technology. It creates a barrier between the game and the blockchain, allowing users to make numerous transactions without needing to approve blockchain transactions for every asset transfer. The efficiency of cross-chaining for the business will be improved with the use of this technology.
Furthermore, he mentioned that the team responsible for developing the game has created a high-quality matchmaking system. Dynamic server logic enables the team to scale up or down based on player activity, providing greater cost control and flexibility.
Using Aurorians on Expeditions to stake your NFTs is another excellent method to earn rewards for holding NFTs. Participants can utilize the rewards they receive to improve their experience within the ecosystem. Campeau mentioned in the Prologue that players will experience a glimpse of the world Aurory is constructing, as Aurory Adventures will only make up a small part of the game.
