This article introduces five on-chain games worth paying attention to in January 2024. The author of the article, WASD, not only shared basic information about the game, but also mentioned their latest developments and upcoming events. These games include Sky Strife, Dark Forest Arena, Tarochi, Force Prime Heroes and Aether Sands, demonstrating the vibrancy and diversity of the on-chain gaming space.

January will be a big month for on-chain gaming, with a slew of new products, updates, events, and game tests set to launch over the next 30 days.

In this article, I’m going to give you a preview of what’s to come by introducing five of my most anticipated games, so let’s get started!

Sky Strife

Introduction

Sky Strife is a turn-based real-time strategy (RTS) game built in MUD by Lattice.

In Sky Strife you can participate in 2 to 4 player PVP matches where the goal is to destroy other players bases while protecting your own from attacks.

Upcoming project progress

Sky Strife is about to begin its next ongoing playtest (Season 0.1), which will run on the Redstone Holesky testnet from January 8th to 30th.

While details on how this season will be structured have yet to be officially released, its likely that, as before, the Lattice team will be creating freerolls multiple times a day during this period.

What we know for sure, however, is that players who participate in the aforementioned tournaments will be able to earn Orbs

Orbs are ERC-20 tokens issued as tournament rewards and can be used to create games between freerolls.

Additionally, users will be able to mint new Season Pass NFTs, giving their holders access to exclusive matches, maps, and the ability to launch whitelisted games.

I had a blast playing Sky Strife Season 0, so I can’t wait to play Season 0.1.

Dark Forest Arena

一览1月份值得关注的5款游戏

Introduction

Dark Forest Arena is a Dark Forest community event hosted by dfDAO on the Gnosis chain.

Dark Forest is an MMO in which players compete for domination of the zk-SNARK-covered galaxy by conquering planets, earning points, and increasing their in-game ranking.

Project progress

The latest competition introduced by Dark Forest is the speed round, where the players goal is to capture the target Odaily in the shortest possible time.

The event starts on December 31st and will run for two weeks, with prizes awarded to players with the highest scores (i.e. fastest capture times).

I think this is a great way to reignite interest in Dark Forest and showcase the game to players like me who werent around during its heyday.

Ive yet to formally try to play it, and while Im almost certainly not going to win, Im still eager to join the competition (or should I say, arena).

Tarochi

Introduction

Tarochi is an on-chain RPG game developed by Paima Studios using the Paima engine on XAI.

The game has similarities to Pokémon in that players can explore, complete quests, battle, and capture monsters.

Project progress

Paima plans to host a beta test of the latest version of the game (Season 1) in January.

This event will be open to members of their Discord server, so you should join Discord if you havent already. Season 1 will introduce several new features, including PVP battles (battles are currently PVE) and a tradable gold currency.

Additionally, players will be able to trade their game status.

Overall, Im really excited about Season 1 and want to try out these new features.

I think the introduction of PVP will make combat more engaging, and Im also curious what the player status trading market will look like.

Force Prime Heroes

Introduction

Force Prime Heroes is a fantasy game built by Force Prime using Dojo and Unity.

Created during the recent Dojo Holiday Game Jam hackathon, Heroes is set in a land called Arcanus, where players are tasked with defeating a creature known as The Bone Dragon.

To do this, they will collect treasure chests and engage in PVE battles by deploying five different types of creatures, called units.

Project progress

Although it can currently be played as a downloadable client on Windows, Force Prime Heroes is scheduled to release a web version sometime in the future.

The team will also host a tournament later this month where players can compete to win prizes and influence.

Im not a Windows user, so I havent had a chance to try out Heroes yet.

Regardless, Im excited for the upcoming release of the browser game and tournament, and looking forward to getting my hands on the game for the first time.

Aether Sands

Introduction

Aether Sands is an open world game developed by k 0 Labs using MUD.

Aether Sands is set in a post-apocalyptic world where you need to rebuild civilization by planting and defending a tree known as the Temple.

Youll do this by extracting and managing resources like water and using machines called Harvesters.

Project progress

Aether Sands held its first public test last month and will begin its second test in mid-January.

Although the first public test lasted about 24 hours, we dont know many details about the test.

But based on what I know about the game, Im looking forward to playing Aether Sands.

It reminds me of Primodium, and the open world type of game is one of my favorite types of off-chain games.

New year, good start

As you can see, January is going to be an exciting and action-packed month for us on-chain gamers.

New versions of Sky Strife, Tarochi, Force Prime Heroes and Aether Sands are coming soon, while the Dark Forest arena is also live and playable!

There are sure to be more announcements of other products in the coming weeks. This burgeoning level is not only interesting for all of us, but is a super bullish sign for the future of this space.

All in all, this will be a very important year for on-chain gaming.
