The turn-based role playing game Forest Knight will soon launch in early access on iOS and Android. This beta release is scheduled for this month, but an exact date has not been announced yet. The game is being created by German game developer Behfar Iranmanesh.
Iranmanesh made his game on the Enjin blockchain. Items found in the game are stored there as well. As a result gamers can access their items through the Enjin wallet, which is already available for iOS and Android. Within the wallet there’s a marketplace to trade items in exchange for the native ENJ token.
In Forest Knight players control a hero who needs to battle for the glory of the realm. Players have an unique hero with different abilities and play styles. In addition the main character can be upgraded with better gear, new powers and even team mates.
Forest Knight PVP mode coming later
When Forest Knight launches it will start as a single-player game. Once the game is on the market and Chrono Games is making some money, Iranmanesh will create a PVP battle arena. Players will then be able to test the might of their team against other players. For more details, check out the Forest Knight website.
Blockchain games often split up development
It’s not unheard of for blockchain-focused game developers to first make a solo game, and later on add multiplayer elements. In blockchain game development there are very often two or even three different launch moments for a game. For example, Animoca Brands first launches collectible items, before launching a game a few months later. B-Side Games first made Chainmonsters into a solo experience. Later on the game would be transformed into an MMORPG.
