BlockBastards and Telos to Bring Unity Games to Blockchain
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Blockchain development company BlockBastards is going to launch a proof-of-gameplay reward mechanism named Qudo that will allow any game built on the Unity gaming engine to add token-based features.

Qudo’s compatibility with Unity immediately makes it usable for a vast base of developers and players. Qudo offers game developers a player engagement mechanism that rewards gaming activity and performance with a cryptocurrency, while promoting their games.

Because Qudo will run on the Telos blockchain, the Telos Foundation will be working with BlockBastards to provide marketing and technical support heading into the launch by the end of the second quarter.

“We see many so-called ‘blockchain games’ entering the market where the gameplay is created mainly with cryptocurrency speculation in mind, and pure joy comes after. With Qudo, we want to bring games built with pure gameplay experiences in mind first, as well as the power to reward players with cryptocurrency, while standing out from the competition, without the need for the developer to have any prior blockchain knowledge whatsoever. We’ve already seen on traditional gaming platforms that releases with in-game credit systems tend to make the most money. Now it will be even more powerful to offer those types of features on-chain with Qudo,” João Abrantes, Managing Director of BlockBastards, said.

“We’re so glad to have Qudo coming to Telos, expanding its strength as a gaming platform. There are so many benefits to the system they’re building, including its potential as a whole new way for developers to earn money for the games they create,” Suvi Rinkinen, CEO of the Telos Foundation, said.
