Microsoft To Develop Blockchain Card Game Based On 1980’s Game Book Series

Microsoft, the major game developer Eidos, and Fabled Lands, the gamebook firm, are jointly developing a blockchain card game based on a 1980s best-selling gamebook.


Microsoft the #1 corporation by marketcap is now working with #VeChain to create a blockchain based card game. If you still think $VET is a scam you must be crazy. Microsoft being involved further proves how legitimate Vechain is. Mass adoption incoming! https://t.co/ymTLFFmoCp — Boosted_Yota (@Crypto_Lexus) December 1, 2019

On December 1, it has been published that the new card game will be based on the 1980s best-selling book called “The Way of the Tiger” written by Jamie Thomson and Mark Smith.

Likewise, the game’s title will be “Arena of Death” and its players will fight in fantasy-themed card battles with features from the original gamebook series.

Thomson is also the CEO of Fabled Lands and decided to use blockchain technology because he believes that it suits what he is trying to achieve better than a 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.” Jamie Thomson

It has been analyzed that the company plans to use non-fungible tokens (NFT) on the VeChain blockchain, which has been associated with enterprises and supply-chain management to ensure ownership of in-game assets.

Thomson also says that VeChain will allow creating cards and in-game items “without having to deal with all the crypto stuff”.

Similarly, the tokenization of in-game assets appears to be a growing trend. As it has been reported in late November, Blockchain game F1 Delta Time, licensed by the world-renowned racing series Formula 1, held an auction of F1 car-branded NFTs.

Thus, Gods Unchained, the Ethereum-based trading card game, has far outstripped CryptoKitties by volume after a censorship scandal involving game-developer Blizzard, reaching almost half of a million NFT transfers per day.
