What is play-to-earn? It is a new gaming format that is revolutionizing the gaming industry through a highly engaging format, and has been proven to be a great hit amongst gamers from around the world. While it has been largely localized within the crypto industry, mainstream gaming companies like Square Enix, Ubisoft, and Take Two Interactive are now considering the incorporation of play-to-earn within their new game titles.
“I do think it will be an important part of our–of the future of our industry on a go-forward basis. But it’s still early to kind of figure out how that’s going to work.” – Andrew Wilson, CEO of gaming giant Electronic Arts.
As gamers start to gravitate towards triple-A titles with immersive worlds, like Genshin Impact or Final Fantasy XIV, gaming developers have now realized that people will care more about their online identities as their lives slowly revolve more around the virtual world. Gamers seeking the equivalent of these titles in the crypto industry may find themselves attracted to one of the newest games in the market – MyMino.
MyMino is the brainchild of the decentralised 3D virtual reality platform Microverse, and is set to become a pivotal part of the Microverse World, a vibrant metaverse that employs the liberal use of NFT assets to decorate the world, filling it with new and exciting possibilities. The game seeks to combine blockchain technology with monster-collecting elements to carve out a new niche within the gaming industry, and gamers would be able to collect and breed MINOs – collectible dinosaur pets that comes with unique features and characteristics, and stored as NFTs on-chain.
Gamers would be able to build their collection of MINOs through a variety of means in-game, from completing missions, opening mystery boxes and seasonal giveaways. Ultimately, the game aims to provide players with meaningful challenges, while the play-to-earn model would make it so that they are actually rewarded for their contributions in-game.
MyMino is set for release on 28th January, and will be available via a PC client. The team is still exploring the potential release of the game on the Google Playstore and iOS store, and plenty of new and exciting updates have already been planned over the next few quarters of 2022.
