Business of Games - 1/5th of blockchain games are discontinued (more to follow)
how to avoid the pitfall, a view from a game dev service provider
Hey Friends, Greetings from Bangalore 💗
21% of blockchain games are discontinued already (with no updates from the owners), and I believe more games will get discontinued in the current web3 game downfall.
I do get inquiries to build web3 games from new cryptocurrency owners, who want to build a web3 game as a utility
Most of them don’t want to build a web3 game, they want to add some elements of blockchain to the game
Most of the members in the community are driven/motivated by personal financial gains vs excited about gameplay or a core loop
Things the crypto owners should understand before finalizing what they wanted to build to avoid player-product misfit
Have clarity on what community you want to build, and who should be there - if they prefer stacking, yielding it is best to build gamefi mechanics over a web3 game
OR understand your community and build what they want
Have clarity on “How’s my game better with blockchain? How’s it better for players?”
Understand if it’s a web3 game or web2 game (with blockchain elements added)
Once you have clarity on these - they become your pillars for the game/product. Tell me what did I miss in the comments/chat!
My fav web3 game devs/ecosystem to watch out for: 1. Mighty Bear Games 2. Square Enix 3. Voodoo 4. ImmutableX 5. Muus Collective
