Chainmonsters is highly anticipated in the blockchain community and it’s not difficult to see why. It is a blend of a top-down adventure game and Pokemon, which is enough to prick the ears up of half the gaming population. Throw in the words “MMORPG” and “NFTs” and tens of thousands more ears are visible, mine included.
This monster-taming and battling MMO is on the Flow blockchain and claims to be making much of the game an NFT. The art style is fantastic and the little gameplay I have seen looks smooth and well animated.
The project is high on my list to feature next on Blockchain Gaming Watch and if I can get into this beta test, I’ll put together something more substantial. Speaking of the beta test, let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
Chainmonsters’ Closed Beta Announcement
To start, the closed beta test for Chainmonsters on both PC and Mac will begin towards the end of November or early December 2021. To participate, you must have a Closed Beta Access Key NFT and B-Side Games will be distributing between 30,000 and 100,000 of them. The ways in which you can get your hands on one varies.
- Luck: There will be many giveaways and competitions across Twitter, Facebook, and Discord, both by Chainmonsters and by affiliates and partners.
- Alpha Players: If you played in the alpha test, you’re in automatically.
- Genesis Drop: If you bought something during the sell-out Genesis Drop, you’re in automatically.
- Alpha Access NFT: If you happen to have one of the Alpha Access NFTs in your inventory, it will work for the beta too.
It’s worth noting one line in the official announcement: “Every key will unlock a Closed Beta Access NFT. You can redeem it yourself, trade on the marketplace or send to a friend directly.”
Chainmonsters has been wildly successful in its early development, generating a lot of hype and interest. The project has seemingly expanded and hired more people and October was a big month for B-Side Games. It’s early days, but from what we have seen so far, the ingredients are there to make one hell of a meal.
