VeChain Thor to Host One of Famous Gamebook of 1980s
‘The Way of the Tiger,’ one of gamebook genre scouts and a true 1980s legend, will be released with non-fungible tokens on VeChain Thor.
Unique transferrable blockchain-based assets, non-fungible tokens, are generally employed as game items.
The most popular blockchain games, ‘Gods Unchained’ and ‘CryptoKitties,’ are developed around ‘NFTs.’ Presently, ‘The Way of the Tiger,’ the iconic ninja adventure gamebook, will be released on a blockchain.
The return of a legend
‘The Way of the Tiger’ was published by award-winning author ‘Jamie Thomson’ in the 1980s. It tells the story of a fantasy world where the reader becomes a young samurai who takes on a trip to revenge his foster father and obtain stolen artifacts.
Now, Jamie Thomson, the author of the original book, decided to bring this compelling story to the blockchain. Firstly, he had intended to launch an ordinary’RPG’ based on the famous book, but then he felt like it was ‘the right time’ to switch the idea for the blockchain technology.
‘Imagine playing Magic the Gathering, but knowing if you owned a card, it does belong to you.’
That’s how Mr. Thomson explained the role of NFTs in his future game. According to the press release, game production start-ups ‘Eidos’ and ‘Fable’ will join forces with ‘IT-mogul Microsoft’ to develop this game.
A game on a severe blockchain
‘The Way of the Tiger’ will launch on the ‘VeChain Thor’ blockchain, which is generally linked with enterprises and supply-chain management. The Ethereum blockchain-powered the project’s infrastructure before it transitioned to the native VeChainThor blockchain.
The blockchain was preferred “due to its ability to scale, and create our cards and items without having to deal with all the crypto stuff.” Also, VeChain Thor realized the mechanism of ‘fee delegation,’ which does not require crypto for transferring cards.
According to the prevailing version of the roadmap, ‘The Way of the Tiger’ will be introduced to the gaming world in 2020.
