Blankos Block Party: The NFT Game

Blankos Block Party is an NFT-based web 3 MMO game that offers vibrant gameplay. Combining custom art and design, the game allows players to explore and collect Blankos.  The Blankos mischievous toys make the game even more interactive.

The PC game incentivizes players through play to earn the GameFi model using the Blankos NFTs. Blankos Block Party was launched in December 2020. According to its platform Mythical Games, the game has attracted over a million users to date.

Epic Games Store Launches Blankos Block Party

Since its launch in December 2020, Blankos Block Party was only available through its website for MAC OS and Windows. On September 15, 2022, Epic Games Store launched the Mythical Games’ Blankos Block Party – the first NFT game on the platform. Even though Epic Games Store promised earlier to launch a Web 3 game Grit on its platform but it is still ‘Coming Soon’.

The co-founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney took Twitter to explain the open policy for launching any blockchain game on their platform.

Blankos Block party runs on an EOSIO (now Antelope) blockchain. This blockchain is permissioned, moreover, it is based on the Proof of Authority consensus model. The Proof of Authority is a green consensus model which is more efficient than the Proof of Work. Consequently, according to Epic Games, offering an NFT marketplace to such NFT-based games would not require any additional mining.

Epic Games Studio is one of the significant preachers of Metaverse and NFTs. The platform is backing these projects with the $2 billion funding it received in April 2022.  The co-founder and CEO, Tim has a clear and unwavering stance on supporting blockchain-based products. Epic Games Store received a backlash from the community for jumping into NFTs and P2E games. Tim discouraged all those voices replying, “Developers should be free to decide how to build their games, and you are free to decide whether to play them.”

Conclusion:

Epic Game Studio is one of those projects who understand the shifting trend to the blockchain world where traditional games will have less space. Crypto, DeFi, Metaverse, Web 3, and other blockchain products are, undeniably, capable to replace the current centralized internet and entertainment source we rely on.
