An NFT Game Development Checklist
After a stressful day at school or work, gamers have for a long time now used video games to unwind. In recent years there has been a lot of development in the gaming industry, particularly the game developers. For budding entrepreneurs, there’s a superb opportunity to make a revolution in the virtual world. As of late, NFT games have created a lot of hype and have redefined the gaming industry. There are multiple benefits to gamers who earn by playing games, as well as for entrepreneurs initiating the NFT gaming platform.
What are NFTs?
An NFT (non-fungible token) is a digital asset, representing a unique item like music, art, videos, and in-game items. Developed on blockchain technology, an NFT is a digital cryptographic token. They are sold and bought frequently online with cryptocurrency(bitcoin, ether, dogecoin), generally encoded with identical underlying software as several cryptos.
The question is if anyone can own any image, or say a collage of pictures for free, then why are people willing to spend millions on something which is so easily accessible? Because through NFT, not only can a buyer own the item, but it also contains a built-in authentication serving as proof of ownership. Among NFT’s purposes is the preservation of the value of objects relative to a gaming collection.
NFT Game Development Checklist
Following are some steps that need to be thought over during the initiation of the NFT game development process:
You need to partner with an experienced game development company providing you with top-notch NFT game development services. Managers, junior and senior developers, the QA engineers team, and 3D/2D artists should be included. Once that’s done, you can be assured to receive the best gaming solution.
Conception and Designing:
Choosing a genre is crucial and a basis for the design process. The storyline, aesthetics, rules, goals, and targeted audience all revolves around the conceptualization. The process of designing involves a GDD (game design document) which unambiguously describes a game’s target audience, gameplay, selling points, level design, art, UI, assets, story, and characters. This document is enough for the developers to start the game development process.
The sophistication and seamless running of an NFT game require the selection of an appropriate and efficient technology stack. GitHub is an open-source platform where you can clone your game template, define the best applications and tools for front and back end, smart contract (an Ethereum blockchain application), and testing.
It is the protection for the decentralized gameplay that specifies its features and guidelines. It is in charge of the NFT movement, cyber-security of the game, and modification of transactions. It enhances the overall security of the buyer and seller and keeps your games safe from any external threats.
Testing & Deployment:
Quality assurance teams carry out the evaluation and assessment of the pre-built games, to test their error-free functioning and seamlessness. And after getting approval from the board regarding the above procedures, you can introduce your game to the global gaming community.
Blockchain for NFT Game Development
It is amongst the best platforms for NFT game development. It is a decentralized blockchain network power-driven by Ether token, enabling a user to make transactions, earn interest on their assets through staking, use and share NFTs (nonfungible tokens), play games, use social media, trade cryptocurrencies, and much more. Ethereum provides the ability to develop a game metaverse where digital assets can be conveniently transferred from one game to another. Moreover, users get an Ethereum wallet, in which their ether is secured through a private key.
Tezos is producing rapid gains in the area of NFT-based gaming. It is an open-source blockchain, offering peer-to-peer transactions and the deployment of smart contracts. Tez (XTZ), the native token of the Tezos blockchain offers security, interacts with dApps, and engages the users in art, gaming, and more. With cheap rates, easily upgradeable architecture, ensuring the validity of smart contracts through formal verification on the blockchain, evading bugs, and low energy consumption, Tezos is becoming a favorable choice of blockchain for numerous leading game developers.
The fastest, most scalable, and most decentralized blockchain to exist today is Solana. It is a perfect network to develop immersive metaverses, NFT projects, and appealing gaming experiences. It offers fast and cheap transactions, has a strong ecosystem, and the team’s technical excellence is something that cannot be doubted. Solana’s programming language RUST is well-known among game developers. Zoolana, Void, and DeFi Land are famous due to this blockchain-based platform.
