If you are new or have no idea what Dappsify FAQs are, this should answer your question: It consists of an interview containing 5 general inquiries and 2 game-specific questions for the blockchain game developer.
There’s an interview with the team of CryptoHorse and here are the questions:
1. How long does it take you and your team to finish this kind of game? How many are you in your team? And why is it important to have more than one person creating a game?
Crypto Horse we will never reach the state of a finished game. We will continue to evolve the game and become a long-term gaming experience. We think the time of “finished games” is over. A BlockchainGame will surely have to keep evolving to satisfy its investors. Standstill of a decentralized application means the end of this application. We are currently a team with some core developers and a few people for long-term planning. The more people participate in our project – the more successful the main product (in our case horse racing) can start. In the medium term, we are planning a 40-person team. Whether security, smart contracts, design, 24h support, marketing and PR. A person will be able to develop a game but can not nurture and promote a community.
2. Have you developed or worked on any type of gaming before? What makes you feel that you are?
Our team has already gained experience with other games. But CryptoHorse is the first project with playable MVP in the Ethereum Mainnet. Above all, Blockchain games are interesting because they are a long-term cross-game solution. A worldwide game is possible without cheats and hacks. Who can say he owns an immortal CryptoHorse? Online games never interested us. Sacrificing time for illusions was not our motto. With Blockchaingames your time for pleasure (games) can even make a return possible.
3. Blockchain game developing can be a tiring process, how will you refrain from burning out?
Processes are especially tiring when they are not fun. Our goals are achieved by going one way. Sometimes there are small stones on the way. We clear them out of the way. And on you go. A good work-life balance is just as important to our employees as an open ear to ideas and sympathy for this great project. That connects.
4. What is the most rewarding part about developing games?
On the one hand, the success experiences of our users are in the foreground. Whether it’s fun, long-term opportunities and a shared story. To look at this pleases us. Every purchase of a CryptoHorse makes the system bigger and the world around the horses grows. from horse stables to HorseCity – a development worth watching.
5. What is one piece of advice you have for aspiring game developers?
Game developers and those who want to be there should be careful to participate in long-term projects. A short, quick success on the Dapp market may attract some to quickly build a simple game. Currently, the market is full of such IDLE or Ponzi Games. Like cryptocurrencies and ICOs, a sensible concept is responsible for its success. There are currently many interesting projects on the market. Also we are looking for gifted developers and those who are already coders and are ready for the dAPP development. Being a game developer also means having a creative job. Not only the code is important, but above all the possibilities. These must be cleared in the blockchain from the beginning. The Code Review is another process. An update is not easy on the blockchain. This brings additional stress for developers.
6. What makes Crypto Horse different from other crypto games?
CryptoHorse is a luxury product for everyone. With us you can work your way up from the simple horse owner to the racetrack owner. Imagine: You own an iron mine in CryptoHorseCity in a few years. In addition a transport company (railway or horse transporter 4HP) which transports the iron into the horseshoe smithy. From there it is transported further in the direction of horseshoe shop “Golden Feet“And this horseshoe of the best steel and a very good forging ability ensures that a particular horse wins the decisive advantage at the annual World Cup. The profit for the horse owner is automatically paid out, the racetrack owner has already 6 months previously advertised to be able to host this event. An economic cycle develops. At CryptoHorse City you can own a shop and sell horseshoes or even speculate on saddle shops. Whether the price of a saddle shop rises or falls depends on the demand. When the first racetracks are opened and media hype spreads around the world, who does not want to own one of 5 saddle stores?
7. How can the horses increase there value over time?
Racing successes make horses legendary. The added value is not necessarily in the resale of a horse, much more the horse is the driver of the economy. Especially horses with very good attributes are needed for the mating, others serve as racehorses and thus ensure high racing wins and fame. Not to forget the value of very special horseshoes or quality saddle which are unique collectibles with immense benefit and advantage for the race result. Whether the long term becomes richer the one who digs for gold or builds the shovels – you can decide yourself. Thank you for the interview.
