The studio also announced the completion of phase one of the roadmap.
Portal Fantasy, a brand-new pixel RPG ala old school Pokémon has just announced the launch of its first-ever closed beta on the Avalanche network on March 28th, 2023.
Portal Fantasy is a browser-based adventure RPG that focuses on community-driven content which aims to blend nostalgia with innovation. With two distinct playstyles available to players at launch, Portal Fantasy anticipates having a high replay value that entices gamers to return and maintain its economy. The game allows players to mint their characters as NFTs and freely trade them with other players and/or collectors.
Portal Fantasy has been backed by investors from both the gaming and crypto industries, the well-experienced team of developers with ties to major gaming studios in the likes of Ubisoft and Haemimont Games being the main reason.
The beta will be available to a limited number of players who have been given beta passes. The closed beta will focus on showcasing some of the game’s core features such as character creation and playstyles, quests, and the trading system.
Avalanche is a platform developed by Ava Labs to enable the creation of high-performance decentralized applications. The interoperability of the Avalanche network paves the way for fast, secure, and reliable transactions. The team behind Portal Fantasy is confident in building off of Avalanche’s industry-leading scalability to provide a seamless experience for its users. According to Portal Fantasy, Ava Labs’ efforts to maintain a sustainable approach to operating in the crypto industry is another core reason for the partnership.
Portal Fantasy’s unique dual-token economy and adaptability to multiple platforms allow it to integrate seamlessly into the Avalanche network. The team has announced the official completion of phase one of the Portal Fantasy roadmap, which included securing funds, completion of game development, playtesting, and the launch of the first round of marketing for the game. Portal Kombat, a mini-game set within the Portal Fantasy Universe was also launched in February.
With the launch of the closed beta, Portal Fantasy aims to attract a healthy community of both gamers and crypto enthusiasts. The team’s “fun-first” approach from the ground up has ensured the blockchain aspects of Portal Fantasy in no way inhibit the game from being a rewarding experience for players.
The minds behind Portal Fantasy are made up of a repertoire of individuals from various industries. The game lead boasts over a decade of experience at Ubisoft and Haemimont Games. The studio founders are quant developers, with over 10 years of programming experience.
With a pool of skilled individuals working tirelessly to bring about a title that would rejuvenate the Blockchain gaming space, Portal Fantasy has a lot to accomplish; and there’s no doubt that it will.
