Phantom Galaxies will take players on a thrilling science fiction adventure to protect human colonies on the frontiers of known space. Enlist in the elite Ranger Squadron and pilot a Mechanized Starfighter to defend against the incursions of the Sha’Har, the mysterious and warlike civilization intent on extinguishing humankind for desecrating its hallowed tomb worlds.
Yat Siu, the chairman and co-founder of Animoca Brands, commented: “Our goal with Phantom Galaxies is to provide not just an amazing game experience but also a shining example of how blockchain integration can put real in-game governance in the hands of the players.”
Engage in fast-paced battles against enemy mechs, spacecraft, and sky-filling capital ships. Gain new skills, abilities, weapon configurations, and more as you upgrade the mech class that fits your playstyle. Unlock different variants for each of the four mech classes, and customize your loadout to triumph on the battlefield.
Travel to different stars, exploring sectors inhabited by pirates, scavengers, and rogue factions. Join one of the powerful player corporations that govern the galaxy. Choices made will ripple through the colonies and star systems, affecting a player’s reputation and influencing how the narrative of Phantom Galaxies unfolds.
“Phantom Galaxies is a gorgeous and evocative medley of everything we love about science fiction and action RPGs,” said Ben Lee, CEO of Blowfish Studios. “Building a mecha space opera has us ‘over the moon’ and we can’t wait to put you in your own Mechanized Starfighter next year! And, thanks to the implementation of blockchain and NFTs, your combat mech will truly be yours, completely and genuinely owned by you.”
Most video games are provided to users on a licensing basis in which game publishers retain ultimate ownership of the game and all game content. However, the assets used in Phantom Galaxies will be truly ownable, allowing players to have digital property rights in games.
Phantom Galaxies is a fast-paced third-person experience that looks and plays exactly like the traditional 3D action RPGs familiar to millions of gamers, with the difference that it will allow players to have true ownership and control of in-game assets such as mechs, equipment, avatars, and game currency by having those assets exist as fungible and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on an energy-efficient and scalable blockchain.
Phantom Galaxies will launch in 2022 and will be available for Windows PC and Consoles.
