Free-to-play or play-to-win?
Ember Sword differentiates itself by focusing on free-to-play model instead of the more traditional, pay-to-win. The vision is to develop a player-driven economy that allows gamers to earn rewards through in-game activities including the creation of unique and tradable NFT items.
The studio puts a premium on developing an immersive player-first gaming experience. Thus, players will be treated with freeform sandbox gameplay, an immersive world, a good storyline and a thriving NFT Economy. The game employs complex character skill progression and an AI manager that directs gameplay to enhance the player experience.
Polygon powering Ember Sword’s NFT Economy
Bright Studios decided to conduct the Ember Sword’s NFT land sale on Polygon to fast track the selling process. Ethereum was ruled out because of gas fees and slow transactions. This is the consequence of being the leading blockchain with high traffic and volume. Thus, buyers were able to purchase the lands with low gas costs thanks to Polygon’s exclusive features of high speed and low gas infrastructure.
The gaming industry is one that has natural synergies with NFTs. So far, Ember Swords is winning at every front.
