To survive and thrive in the fast-paced game industry, understanding the struggles and figuring out how to solve them is the only choice for any game studio. After researching popular games, here are.
1. For Game Players
Players have to pay an "entry fee", making the game "high risk" if it is a scam project. This entry fee also becomes a barrier for new players to enter the game when it goes up due to the token price surge.
The gameplay is focused on the earning aspect rather than making it fun, which makes the overall experience poor.
A handful of game studios offer either a mobile version or a desktop version, but not both.
The high gas fee rate in blockchain games is a burden on the players.
Players can not use their stake tokens or NFTs to perform in-game tasks once they are added to the staking pools.
2. For Game Publishers
It is challenging for blockchain game developers to enter the traditional game market because of several reasons:
Traditional games do not support the mobile version or desktop app version.
There is a limited integration of payment methods/ gateways in traditional games.
Traditional gamers are not familiar with tokens or NFTs. Most of them find it to be complicated technology.
Popular game stores including Apple store and Google Play store ban games that feature crypto/NFT exchanges.
On top of that, the blockchain game itself carries potential risks such as:
The inflation of the tokens and NFTs can trigger the decrease and collapse of the in-game economy. Users end up leaving the game quickly when the crisis peaks out.
The game publishers encounter a real headache of high gas fee rate.
