Platform Review: MegaCryptoPolis
Released in early 2018, MegaCryptoPolis is the first NFT-based city-building strategy game. Players can own lands, houses, offices and factories in NFT format within the game. Citizens get jobs, and those who have jobs can hire employees and employ them.
Land and resource limitations are fundamental to economics in MegaCryptoPolis as in the real world. It is in the game's codes that when a player buys a plot, the owner of the plots nearby as well as the person selling the land get a share of the payment and all nearby plots become more expensive. All in-game assets are distributed among players. Developers receive a small percentage of in-game transactions as part of their sustainable revenue model.
For now, the company is on the verge of extending its existing MegaCryptoPolis model into a metadata, called Mega World, with a data-driven economy where players can create any asset, run business inside buildings, use NTFs and trade.
