In a first of its kind for non-fungible token (NFT) games built in the blockchain, games developer Foonie Magus announced that Apeiron NFT has raised a staggering US$3 million in its preseed valuation on 21 February, 2022.
Apeiron is the world’s first play and earn (P&E) god-game on the blockchain. Inspired by the classic gameplay of god-games like noir et blanc and popularit has new modern touches and some interesting makeovers for the gamers of today.
More about the Apeiron NFT
The god-game is scheduled to release late in 2022 but is already creating waves in the gaming community. With stunning gameplay teasers, revolutionary tri-token economy and rich mythological settings, the new game has elements like Roguelike RPG dungeon delving, planet building simulations and Alliance PvP endgame in one complete package.
Players will be able to earn NFTs in the form of planets, stars and relics. To add to that, players can also create new NFTs by combining the elements of the existing ones. Through a ritual called ‘Celestial Conjugation’ two planets can be combined to make a third one. And of course, all through the game, players will get ample opportunities to earn tokens, which can be exchanged on the marketplace for real cryptocurrency.
Commenting on the difference between Apeiron and other play-to-earn games, CEO Frank Cheng says, “We believe that at the end of the day, games should be enjoyable and NOT work. Money and work tends to take the enjoyment out of entertainment experiences. We are gamers at heart…and our focus is on creating games with great gameplay, friendly social dynamics, and epic moments. Earning is secondary in the equation and more like a bonus that rewards dedication, skill and teamwork.”
