Game on! Heroes.fun taps SKALE for an Enhanced Blockchain Gaming Experience
From the moment humans started playing games, we have always sought new and immersive ways to enjoy them, from simple board games of ancient civilizations to the complex digital landscapes of today's video games. Today, we are witnessing a new phase in the evolution of gaming, where traditional gaming intersects with blockchain technology. In this transformative landscape, Heroes.fun is now developing their games on the SKALE Network, the fastest blockchain network in the world.
Heroes.fun is a gaming platform inspired by the timeless classics that have shaped generations of gamers, yet imbued with a new-age twist. It's a free-to-play game where players navigate through the captivating world of Merlin's Dungeons, battling classic foes while enjoying an enhanced gaming experience powered by the seamless integration of Web3 technology via the SKALE Network.
This gaming experience isn't interrupted by frequent wallet interactions - a common drawback in other blockchain-based games. Instead, transactions are handled behind the scenes by Heroes.fun's integration with SKALE. This lets players remain immersed in their gaming adventure. And soon, access to this experience will be as simple as signing up with an email.
The decision to integrate with SKALE was a strategic one for Heroes.fun. By leveraging SKALE's capabilities for instant finality and zero gas fee transactions, Heroes.fun aims to provide a seamless gaming experience that is not weighed down by the typical delays and interruptions associated with Web3 interactions.
Starting as an NFT collection on Ethereum, Heroes.fun now has ownership of 3,333 Hero NFTs across 800 unique wallets. It has also facilitated an impressive 1,600 ETH worth of secondary sales.
As Sean Papanikolas, founder of Heroes.fun, aptly put it: "Implementing SKALE into Merlin's Dungeons allows us to create a fun, free-to-play game that uses Web3 to enhance the experience in a seamless way. SKALE enables us to submit in-game transactions efficiently and affordably, avoiding the typical interruptions of Web3 gameplay. We are building a game for the masses, and SKALE helps us achieve this."
In partnering with Heroes.fun, the SKALE community is excited to see how this collaboration pushes the boundaries of what is possible in the gaming world, merging the traditional with the cutting-edge, and delivering a gaming experience for the masses that is enhanced by blockchain technology.
