Microsoft will bring an old gamebook back to life as a result of the latest partnership with Eidos and Fabled Lands. The three companies will bring the popular 1980s gamebook back to life by creating a blockchain card game as we are reading in the blockchain news today.
Eidos is a major game developer and the Fabled Lands is a gamebook company that will be cooperating with Microsoft to create the new blockchain card game. According to a press release, the new card game will be based on the best-selling book named ‘’The Way of The Tiger’’ initially written by Jamie Thomson and Mark Smith. The game will be named ‘’Arena of Death’’ and the players can fight the fantasy-themed card battles and features from the original gamebook series.
Thomson is the Fabled Land’s chief executive officer and he was the one who decided to use blockchain technology because he believes that it suits the needs he has in order to achieve a better version of the traditional videogame. He said:
“We were going to relaunch the series into a computer game format but this new technology (blockchain), just made more sense. Imagine playing Magic the Gathering but knowing if you owned a card, it really does belong to you. Or if we say there are only 100 editions of an item or skill, you know there really are only 100 editions.”
The company plans to use non-fungible tokens on the VeChain blockchain that was associated with the enterprises and supply chain management in order to ensure ownership of the in-game assets. VeChain will allow creating cards and in-game items without the need to deal with all of the ‘’crypto stuff’’ according to Thomson.
The tokenization of in-game assets is a growing trend as reported in late November, the Blockchain game F1 Delta Time which is licensed by the world-renowned racing series Formula 1, had an auction of car-branded NFTs. Also, Microsoft will work on another blockchain-related project with the R3 company and KPMG to develop a blockchain for telecom settlements. The latest partnership of the global accounting firm with two distributed industry leaders, one of which is Microsoft– is featured and continues to be the vein of resolving the issues that arise from multi-party connections.
