Deep Dive #21 | Mist | Blockchain-based NFT RPG Game

Introduction

Most of the current Blockchain-based games face barriers such as bad graphics, simple storylines, and unattractive game content, which revolve around raising pets or building something. These things have kept this game genre from getting closer to many traditional players who are used to complex game systems that are no different from reality. But there is one game trying to conquer all of the above combined with play-to-earn mechanics, and that is Mist.

Mist is a blockchain-based action role-playing game with play-to-earn mechanics revolving around NFTs, Staking, and Farming. Built with Unity using the in-house Mist NFT Game Framework (MNGF), the project provides players with an immersive in-game environment with five character classes and loads of magic, like traditional role-playing action games, which have been loved since we were kids. Let’s find out what’s interesting about this game!

Market Analysis 

Play to earn is not a new form of gaming. It appeared a long time ago with the advent of games. But most of what players earn is limited by the game’s scope, not having much real-life value. Today, thanks to the development of NFT, technology has turned game items into valuable things. This has revolutionized the gaming market, making games more interesting, engaging, profitable, and meaningful for players.

Therefore the game sector is a very fast-growing market in the blockchain industry, especially with the increasing popularity of NFT. This market is expected to have great developments in the long term, not just instantaneously.

Product Highlight 

Gameplay 

The game brings players an environment where there are 5 classes of characters (Crusader, Enchanter, Ranger, Shapeshifter, and Witch Hunter) possessing different abilities. Mist consists of player-versus-player battle and exploring a world of full possibilities.  Players can also collect NFTs, battle monsters, and explore infinitely immersive environments.

Play-to-earn methods

NFTs in Mist can be added to the Mist Game Framework and turned into game items. They can also be traded in in-game exchanges (auction houses) and third-party NFT exchanges.

Players can earn rewards as in-game businesses have revenue through staking the in-game currency (the MIST token) by investing in in-game businesses, such as taverns, general stores, and more. 

Players can also farm by buying farmland, farms, or livestock. When your farms work, you receive rewards. 

NFT in Mist

Each time an NFT is upgraded, the lower-level NFTs are burned and removed from circulation. NFT upgrades have 5 tiers total, with spending exponentially more resources in the upgrade. 

Tier 1: Basic NFT: This is the 1st level NFT

Tier 2-Tier 4 NFT: These are progressively stronger, more useful, and rarer as the tiers increase

Tier 5: Legendary NFT: The most powerful, strong, scarce, and elite version of the NFTs

The NFT items available now will not have more minted. These will be the First Edition rare items with only 608 available of each on the marketplace, meaning possible 19 Legendary Upgraded.

The team only receives 4.5%; the rest of the allocations are for the project’s operation, implying the team’s desire to build a real and long-term project. However, the lock time is also quite short, only 6 months, which is also a bad point for new projects.

For a more detailed overview of MIST’s valuation, we can compare the prices of private and seed rounds. Significantly, the current price of MIST has increased by 1890% compared to the listing price. However, the growth is not expected to stop there; it will be stronger when MIST is listed on larger exchanges like Binance or Coinbase.

Games NFT trend that is booming during this time. As expected, this wave is not over yet and could increase even more, especially in the context of the bullish, BTC hit the $46,000 mark again. But be careful, no one knows when this trend will end, and the price of tokens related to games is seemingly overrating. Without a good entry, the consequences will be unpredictable.

Unique Selling Point (USP)

The game is built on Unity with the advantage of the ease of use. It allows us to synchronize game builds and code through the Unity Teams Collaborate module, which benefits the international team of developers trying to synchronize their progress in different timezones.

The Mist NFT Framework allows game developers to create and deploy multiplayer ARPGs that include systems such as:

• Inventory system that connects to BSC

• Ability system

• Quest system

• Zone system

• Weapon system

• Adjustable UI / SFX system

• NPC system

• Alignment system

To provide seamless blockchain connectivity, our framework consists of a Python SDK that runs on the server-side, allowing trans allows us to Binance Smart Chain with each user’s account information securely forwarded to the smart contracts responsible for farming, mining, and NFT rewards.
