Perhaps the best way to begin looking at just why NFT game development is on the rise would be to start with a silly quote from Willy Wonka. In one of his iconic quotes from the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie, he twisted an old saying. He said, “So much time and so little to do.” Isn’t that just like the traditional gaming industry? There is only so much you can do in a centralised gaming ecosphere because once you’ve done it, you’ve done it all. This is not so in the NFT gaming metaverse that is totally decentralised. Thus begins the first reason why NFT game development is on the rise.
1. NFT Gaming Is Decentralised
In the traditional gaming ecosphere, games were developed and that was it. You could choose avatars, weapons and other tools that were already designed as part of the game. With an NFT game, players can do everything from changing the background and colours to creating their own weapons and tools. There is no end to the creativity within an NFT game and because it is easy to develop a game or produce various tools on an NFT marketplace.
2. Growing Interest in NFTs
NFTs, nonfungible tokens, exist in the digital blockchain but are unlike cryptocurrencies. NFTs can neither be traded or exchanged for anything of equal value. For example, where a currency can be broken down into smaller segments, this is not so with nonfungible tokens. They exist as proof of ownership and unique individuality of an underlying asset. When you then move on to the gaming industry, just think of what all this can mean.
A game developed within the NFT metaverse can be digitally logged on the blockchain as an NFT and this is where it gains value. Players and other developers can create various things within the game, also logging them as NFTs. They can be bought and traded, but they cannot be exchanged for anything of equal value. When they are sold, they are usually sold and paid for by cryptocurrency. It is not just in gaming that interest in NFTs is growing which is why gaming can literally tag along with the trend.
3. A Growing Interest in Investing in NFT Gaming
Because of all the possibilities for making money within the NFT gaming and highly decentralised metaverse, a growing number of companies are investing in NFT game development. Many are searching for game developers which is leading to a growing interest among consummate game developers. Are they transitioning from developing traditional games to the development of NFT games? It seems likely that this is, indeed, the case.
In the end, although NFT game development is on the rise, it should be stated that the whole NFT arena is exploding by the day. Whether they are attached to works of art, music, or in this case, games, it is becoming quite popular to create nonfungible tokens and they can be worth quite a considerable sum.
