As a report has it, the alpha demo of a Cardano-based game, Drunken Dragon, has launched on PC and macOS. Drunken Dragon Games is a fantasy tavern management game with collectible furniture and adventurers.
In response to a user who asked if Cardano (ADA) can be earned or spent while playing the game, ProteinFolding420 wrote:
“The game will not be play to earn. When the full game releases, you can unlock better items by completing quests within the game. Anything purchasible now with ADA are early collectibles used to fundraise development of the full release.”
He added that the fact that players can sell their gold and skins to third parties in World of Warcraft and CS:GO respectively, does not make the game a play to earn.
The Game Will Be Available As a DApp on Cardano
As reported a couple of weeks ago, the game is said to be ultimately available as a decentralized application (DApp) on the Cardano blockchain.
The report also emphasized that the game will not affect users’ delegation by sending/receiving the digital token ADA from a staked wallet. All that changes, according to ProteinFolding420, is the amount staked, much like fiat in a bank account.
The update further stated that F2p players can use custodial wallets managed centrally by the team. So, it’s possible for novice players not to realize that it’s a crypto-based game.
“If these f2p players are having fun and wish to take ownership over their assets after learning about blockchain tech, they are free to move them out of their custodial wallet into their own personal wallet which would then cost fees.” ProteinFolding420 noted.
