Growing up, many team members’ first experience with digital game design was building maps using mod tools in Starcraft, Warcraft, Doom, Duke Nukem 3D and similar PC classics. In that era of PC gaming, it was common for games to ship with polished versions of the tool the developers used to build the game. Some games let you make one-off maps, some let you build full campaigns, and some games had tools so extensive you could build complete game experiences within them. Many of the world’s best game designers got their start building levels or mods that got noticed by professionals.
As we've moved to mobile phones being the predominant devices for playing games around the world, and for games requiring always on connections and stable server architectures, we've lost much of that spirit of co-creation with the community.
Now, thanks to decentralized blockchain tech, we have the opportunity to discover the next evolution of community co-creation. Thanks to LHU, not only will you own all your assets in the form of NFTs, but other developers will be able to build completely new experiences using those NFTs. The community can take Legendary in unexpected directions that allow you to use your Legendary heroes in completely new contexts. This is possible thanks to the provable ownership provided by blockchain.
Additionally, you will own your heroes, your gear and your land. If you play Legendary for 3 years and decide it's time to move on, the money and energy you spent in Legendary will not be wasted. You could decide to hold on to your heroes for another day, or else sell them to another player on the secondary market, retaining the lion's share of the profit for yourself. While playing the game, you can earn crypto-tokens you can spend to power up your heroes. Or, if you don't need those tokens, you can sell them to other players who want them more.
These are just some of the use cases for how blockchain transforms Legendary beyond what it has been to date. Blockchain technology is truly ushering in a new era for game making, game playing, and community co-development. We couldn't be more excited to explore this new space with you.
