Spielworks, a leading blockchain startup specialising in gaming and decentralised finance (DeFi) solutions, has announced the upcoming launch of “Dungeon Worlds,” a massive expansion to its popular “Dungeon Master” game. Influencers and NFT creators can now run their own dungeons, propagating their NFT collections, while providing additional utilities and experiences on their own terms, including rewards. The expansion goes live soon on the Wax blockchain with land sales beginning on December 29. The first drops on Polygon will take place in February ahead of the public launch in May.
Despite the crypto bear market, investors have poured more than $3.4 billion in private NFT and blockchain gaming companies through Q3 of this year. With hundreds of millions of NFTs across multiple networks already issued, and billions, or even trillions, of them to be minted over the coming years, blockchain-gaming platforms have an opportunity to build games that drastically expand the P2E user base.
Spielworks’s flagship game, “Dungeon Master,” demonstrated the power of engaging with creators and brands via NFTs. Now, with the launch of “Dungeon Worlds,” Spielworks expands the Wombat ecosystem by bringing user-owned NFT staking experiences. In “Dungeon Worlds,” just like in the original “Dungeon Master” game, community-run dungeons are organised in seasons, with each one starting and ending across all dungeons.
To create a dungeon, a user must hold land in the form of a 3×3 patch. The plots of land will initially be dropped as NFTs on the WAX and Polygon blockchains before being added to others, like Ethereum. In the game, each blockchain features a 64×64 tile-sized map of lands. At the end of each season, “Dungeon Worlds” will award all community-led dungeons with a prize pool of 100 million $WOMBAT tokens. Additional features include competitions, cross-dungeon equipment, clans, and the “Overlord Principle,” which comes with a set of special privileges within the game.
Spielworks has built one of the fastest-growing blockchain gaming ecosystems in the market, featuring a total of 3 million signups and 65,000 daily users. The ecosystem incorporates its multi-chain non-custodial Wombat Wallet, crypto rewards platform Womplay featuring 40 AA and AAA supported titles and Top 20 NFT staking game Wombat Dungeon Master counting 1.5 million staked NFTs.
“We have invested so much time and energy building up to this moment and we are really proud of the hard work that we’ve put into Dungeon Worlds. Dungeon Worlds brings so many awesome new features that will resonate with our community. In addition to these new features, down the road we are planning to introduce multi-chain dungeons, a battle mode, clan wars, Dungeon DAOs, and more,” Adrian Krion, CEO and Co-Founder of Spielworks, said.
