Developers look to build their own game that will feel familiar to Minecraft players.
NFT Worlds, a blockchain metaverse project initially integrated on the popular sandbox game, Minecraft, revealed their plans following Minecraft’s ban on blockchain technology.
Via a long Twitter thread on July 22, NFT Worlds announced they would be building their own game that will give a familiar feel to current Minecraft players in terms of playstyle, look, and feel. There will be some changes in game mechanics and graphics, plus performance optimization and improvements to create a different kind of enjoyable and ownable playing experience.
Gaming platform Steam made a similar move to Minecraft in October of 2021 by banning all NFT games on their platform. Minecraft’s ban puts some 200 independent teams developing on NFT Worlds at risk and puts the entire project in jeopardy. The project’s token, $WRLD, took a major dive following the announcement.
The move, according to NFT Worlds, signals that Minecraft “has no regard for builders in their ecosystem” given that this isn’t the first time it has “enforced a new crippling policy or agenda based rule enforcements on creators.” The team sees this as a “battle between two different visions for the future of the web.”
Minecraft states that they want to ensure a “safe and inclusive experience” for their users. The official stance of the game does leave some room for blockchain integration in the future.
Epic Games CEO, Tim Sweeny, said in a Twitter reply that Epic Games will have a different approach towards NFT and blockchain. Sweeny gave assurance that Epic Games won’t “force their views onto others” and said that “Developers should be free to decide how to build their games” while players are “free to decide whether to play them.”
Built on the Ethereum network, NFT Worlds is a fully decentralized, customizable, and community driven, platform where players can create their own gaming experiences on worlds that they can own. A total of 10,000 unique NFT worlds are developed and owned by different communities. THe vision is that these 3D worlds open up limitless creative possibilities and will eventually become a decentralized MMO ecosystem of interconnected worlds.
