Independent game developers face an almost insurmountable hurdle in their quest for success. Without a marketing budget, Many have to do their work for free. Your only hope is to recoup some of the development costs through in-game ads or microtransactions.that are daunting for many potential players.
Blockchain development team BlockBastards hopes to change this with a new decentralized “Game Test” ecosystem called Qudo.
Integration with Unity
Qudo offers a blockchain-based alternative revenue stream that can be easily implemented in any game created with the Unity platform. After our Alpha Blox test, the first game to use the system, Cointelegraph spoke to Qudo CEO João Abrantes about the benefits for game developers.
Initially, developers need to use a minimum amount of QUDO on the network to have skin in the game..
This number will vary, but is currently 150 QUDO (expected to be worth around $ 15). Abrantes says the value will never be so high that there is an entry barrier.
Developers can bet higher amounts, but the betting reward system is not linearA big developer who sets a lot doesn’t have a big advantage.
Qudo then made it as easy as possible for developers to implement blockchain rewards in Unity games.
“Games can be connected to Qudo in a few minutes. Literally 15 to 20 minutes. It’s practical drag and drop … Once implemented, the system provides an additional mechanism to motivate players for whom the network is Pay attention to the game, not the advertising. “
In addition to this game testing mechanism, developers can also reward players with tokens for their in-game achievements.You can then spend with the developer on in-game purchases.
The same competitive conditions for small developers
The chain receives a reward of 1,000 QUDO blocks every ten minutes. Anyone who has played during this period will report activitiesand 90% of the block reward will be distributed to active games and active players, with 10% reserved for founding partners.
All games that have been played receive a reward based on the amount wagered. 10% of this goes to the developer and 90% is shared among the active players of this game during this period.
This rewards players who try new games and smaller developers who have fewer players. Players can also give rewards for other Qudo-enabled games for in-game purchases.
“Qudo brings interoperability in game credits, where players are rewarded for their time and performance while playing a game, and then spend that revenue on all games. With Qudo, we want to eliminate silos and give games more little ones a fair chance of success.”
Qudo will also make a list of democratic gamestaking into account the merit, This means that smaller games are not overshadowed by games with a large advertising budget.
However Developers can use their QUDO rewards to purchase affiliate services listed on the Qudo market, including advertising services such as becoming a featured game.
The potential return for developers integrating Qudo into their Unity games will not be known until the launch of the platform later this year.. But with such a low entry barrier and additional incentives for gamers, this could bring blockchain games into the mainstream.
