Mirandus is unquestionably one of the most highly anticipated Web3 games in development and the crowning jewel of the Gala Games ecosystem. While a major playtest is imminent, the first way you can play the game is to test the game’s Tavern Games system.
Mirandus is a Web3, epic fantasy MMORPG developed by Gala Games and is something of their flagship title. It is a game that, if pitched by indie developers with no backing, I would chalk up as a one-in-a-million chance of success. However, Gala Games has the capital to make it happen and despite being very much closed to the public while it is developed, Mirandus has accrued a gargantuan fanbase.
In a recent Medium post, the Mirandus team announced that they will be running an open playtest of their Tavern Games feature. Tavern Games are exactly as they sound: each town will have taverns where you can play games at with NPCs and players. The first one on offer is a dice game called Three-Eyed Snake.
Testing this mini-game mode is for two purposes. Firstly, it allows the team to see how these side games work with the players and receive feedback. However, more importantly, Three-Eyed Snake uses the same tech stack as Mirandus, so some useful analytics can be had.
As for player incentives, the team has implemented daily rewards for engaging with the Tavern Games playtest:
In this playtest, players will receive 30 additional copper coins every 6 hours for free. We’re also starting to hook up basic blockchain wallet integration. Players’ wallets are now recognized and awarded copper bonuses based on their game items. These coppers grants are tunable and shouldn’t be considered final. Additionally, the bonus is awarded by type — not quantity. For example, having an Exemplar will grant users with 15 bonus coppers per day, having 2 Exemplars won’t make that bonus 30.
