Dapper Labs, the company behind the blockchain game CryptoKitties, has announced the launch of its new blockchain game Cheeze Wizards on 17 May.
Dapper Labs highlighted that in Cheeze Wizards, players can summon Wizards to fight in magical duels and compete to become the Big Cheeze. The blockchain oriented company added that Cheeze Wizards is a social, crypto-native game in which players compete in a global tournament for the title. The Wizards that the players call upon is a crypto collectible, or non-fungible token (NFT). This is similar to CryptoKitties.
Dapper Labs set the stage and expressed to the players –
“In Cheeze Wizards, players use ether to summon Wizards to compete in a series of duels that make up the Cheeze Wizard Tournament. Every Wizard summoned increases the size of the Big Cheeze, the title and grand prize awarded to the Wizard who wins the tournament. The Cheeze Wizard tournament is a global, multi-week event. During the tournament, Wizards duel one another on a daily basis, gaining power proportional to the size of their victory.”
Dapper Labs conveyed that during the final phases of the tournament, ‘blue mold’ begins to appear, engulfing any Wizard below a particular power. If the player’s Wizard loses their power or falls below a particular value, they are out of the tournament. Dapper Labs emphasized that at the end of the tournament, the most powerful player becomes the Big Cheeze. To recognize their efforts, the winner gains the honor and ether reward.
Dapper Labs threw light on the fact that Cheeze Wizards would not replace the other game, Fortnite. Cheeze Wizards was built on emerging technology whereas Fortnite has been improved iteratively. The gaming firm noted that there is no similarity between the two products. Dapper Labs indicated that the gameplay in Cheeze Wizards is considerably simple and the art is graciously animated. However, there would be challenges to use a blockchain product.
Recently, Dapper Labs introduced Dapper, a smart wallet to make blockchain safe for everyone. The firm opined that smart contract wallets are a fundamental requirement for the adoption of cryptocurrency and decentralized applications. The new wallet is the first blockchain interface that uses smart contract technology in the browser to provide full custody over crypto assets. Everyday consumers are much benefited from this innovation.
Dapper Labs suggested that Cheeze Wizards was as much of an experiment as it is a game. The game has been so named to reflect the magic of technology and the time it takes for decentralization to mature drawing an analogy to cheese.
