Looks really cool. I think for the cost of 1 ETH to fund a trial that this is something that makes sense - just had a couple questions first to better understand what to expect:

  • How long will it take for the games to be completed?
  • Roughly how much gameplay time will the be in each of them?
  • Do you guys have a background in making games?

This sounds pretty interesting. Would love to know more about how you all are planning on running the onchain leaderboard.

Thx. I’ve spoke with Cyberh49 who is developing on-chain gaming mechanics and have been told this is def possible. We’re still discussing specifics on the best way to achieve this.

Thanks!

  • We’ve discussed about 2 weeks per game and that feels good.
  • Aiming for about 1-2 hours to beat each game, depending on each gamers skill level.
  • Mostly as hobbyists and game aficionados. Galaxy has been developing games around Nouns and we’ve tested some Roms that have been really fun! We’re approaching these games as the lead up to a full scale Adventure Game and look forward to building with the community.
