The landscape of Web3 games, despite its promise, suffers from three main issues:
- Lack of engaging gameplay leading to boredom.
- Absence of a revenue flow model that benefits both players and developers.
- Poor graphical quality, making the games unappealing.
To address these challenges, we aimed to develop an Unreal Engine-based Web3 game. The game features an on-chain economy, designed to create revenue streams for both players and the development team. Furthermore, by utilizing Unreal Engine, we could ensure high-quality graphics, setting our game apart from the competition.
The development phase was an iterative process, starting with defining the smart contracts for on-chain storage and establishing the connection between Unreal Engine and blockchain technology. The frontend was developed using Next.js and Tailwind, offering a sleek, user-friendly interface. GraphQL and Prisma were used for handling data queries and the backend, respectively.
- Landing Page: The landing page was successful in attracting attention from potential investors.
- MVP: The minimum viable product offered a simple onboarding process for users, enabling them to join various factions and guilds.
- Unreal Engine Demo: A working demo showcasing the smart contract integration with Unreal Engine was developed.
Mothora serves as a testament to the potential of integrating modern gaming technologies with emerging blockchain capabilities. While challenges remain, the project has already shown promising results in creating a Web3 game that is both engaging and financially rewarding for its participants.
