Surprising? Maybe not.
James Martin Duffy, a creator of CryptoZombies, believes the game can go head-to-head with mainstream titles, such as Magic: The Gathering. Instead of launching an ICO, the team decided to use Kickstarter precisely for its audience. What better way to gain credibility as a legitimate project than launching a crowdfunding campaign on the highly popular Kickstarter?
The company hopes to raise $250,000 with its crowdfunding campaign which will run for 60 days.
The game claims to work as any trading card game — players will be able to collect cards, battle others, and trade cards among themselves. Some of the unique features of Zombie Battleground versus mainstream games come from its blockchain-roots.
All cards are ERC-721 tokens which means they are all unique, just like CryptoKitties. Apart from that, players will be able to sell their cards in a peer-to-peer marketplace from which they will earn real money. Ultimately, this means players can invest as much money in the game as they want, as they will be able to sell it all off once they’re done with it — hypothetically, anyway…
