There have been a few updates in Enjin’s world of games recently, alongside some upcoming releases, like Dungeon Universe, entering the market. Lost Relics got a big update, The Six Dragons is moving to JumpNet and Doctor Necrosis is gearing up for an alpha release. Here’s a rundown.
Lost Relics, a dungeon crawler standing as one of the more popular games in the PTE world released Patch 189 – Pandemonium on September 20th to great fanfare, and just a couple outages. Pandemonium rearranged many of the gathering mechanics in the game, shifting the loot system to allow players to find fewer, but more valuable chests per run.
“It’s better to open 2 chests per run, than 8, if you’re finding valuable items in those chests more often,” according to the patch notes.
The Lost Relics marketplace also saw its fees increase from 3% to 4% in an effort to subsidize the above shift in gathering. Rare tools will now only reap rare items, and a new Forging skill for members to craft armor from ingots. The Graveyard Rumble game mode was also released to members.
While the update was released on the 20th, technical issues prevented most players from playing the game until the 24th. The game is up and running now, and lead developer and founder, Cliff Cawley, chalked up the issues to a 3rd party service they were using, which they have since “jettisoned into orbit and nuked.”
Doctor Necrosis is a new game joining the Enjin ecosystem. It’s a medical sim with a Stardew Valley flair with all the trappings of a big PTE title. You’ll be the doctor of a small town faced with the burden of curing residents suffering from strange medieval diseases (rotting flesh, ghosts in the blood, etc). Only your elixirs can save them, and the doctor must “ diagnose the illness, research a cure for the ailments, forage, harvest for your supplies, and craft the treatment,” according to their website.
There will be more than 15,000 illnesses to cure, and like the real world, some cures may work for other diseases, but they also might simply kill your patient.
The blockchain element comes in the form of pets. You can find and collect little creatures from around the town and send them off to the blockchain to be bought by other lonely doctors.
The game is being created by Black Caffeine Studios, a studio with deep ties to the Enjin gaming universe. They share employees with MyMetaverse, and build the backend for Nestables, an increasingly popular collectibles game.
Doctor Necrosis doesn’t have a release date, but released a gameplay trailer earlier in July.
Another game set to join the Enjin ecosystem, Dungeon Universe advertises NFT everything in its Runescape-esque medieval MMORPG. NFT armor, jewelry, weapons and emotes in a somewhat low-poly world teeming with monsters and sprites to defeat.
The game will be free-to-play, and players will be able to choose between a few different classes, casting spells, swinging swords or shooting arrows at the beasts of the world. They’ll also be able to trade items in player shops, and own houses in the Dungeon Universe.
They’re pushing PTE hard, saying on their website that “Every aspect of the game will be influenced by the blockchain technology where the players will be rewarded for their invested time.”
Dungeon Universe made their first post in late August, and has since released a few trailers, as well as offering trading card sales to early visitors of their social media and Discord.
We’ll be looking forward to playing all these games and watching their progression. It’ll be interesting to see which genres rise to the top, and which games have staying power as the blockchain gaming landscape evolves.
