Blockade Games

Blockchain Game Developer Platform for mainstream game developers to build a scalable blockchain game using the tools they already know.

SEAMLESS USER EXPERIENCE

99% of players drop off with current blockchain game friction. We remove the roadblocks and make the user experience seamless.

USE ANY SUPPORTED BLOCKCHAIN

We don’t choose sides. We provide the infrastructure that connects your game with blockchain assets and contracts on any chain.

About

Why Are We Building A Platform?

In order to produce high-quality blockchain games, we need to build the infrastructure between the blockchain and the game client. At Blockade Games, we’ve been iterating on our design for Neon District, producing a number of games and projects along the way to test new technology and build the scaffolding required for a seamless user experience.

We aren’t building a blockchain, and we aren’t competing with existing services. We are building the bridge between blockchains, current dApp products and services, and our games. Our infrastructure is built to eliminate all user friction points and to scale to millions of players simultaneously. We’re making it possible for blockchain games to go mainstream. Our partners and clients believe in the same mission: a multiverse of games that provide players with unbounded opportunities, experiences, and digital ownership and working together to make it happen.

Who Is This For?

The platform is built for game studios and developers who want to provide the best user experience for players and reap all of the benefits of blockchain assets. Building a game directly on blockchain isn’t easy: there are performance bottlenecks that need to be anticipated and managed, user security concerns, and significant friction between the player and your game.

Our mantra is that players should play and enjoy our games first before we ask them to learn about cryptocurrency, such as setting up a wallet and managing their private keys. We want to give players the incentive to learn about their assets when they are motivated to do so. Our goal is to make it so that players don’t realize they’re playing a blockchain game.

Most importantly, we’re building the platform for ourselves first and foremost. We use this platform in everything we build. Every upgrade and improvement, every new service and blockchain we integrate, becomes accessible to everyone using the platform.

 About

What Does The Platform Do?

Our platform wraps the blockchain layer with redundant services to provide uptime and convenient on-ramps for the player, which are ready out-of-the box for the developer. Each service is designed as an independent module built to do one or a few things incredibly well, and each module can be integrated independently or combined as needed. They are made to scale up and down as demand fluctuates, and they are built to support millions of daily active users from day one.

We find that we’re building the same technology stack with only slight variations between games: NFT caches for deployed contracts, transaction management, user accounts, wallet signature verification, NFT smart contracts, wallet and payment system integration, among many other pieces. Our platform provides these pieces complete and ready for integration so we can focus on building games.

Finally, we’re working closely with our partners and the most popular products and services in the dApp space. If we want to integrate a wallet, payment gateway, marketplace, or blockchain for ourselves, we want it to be available in all of our games – so we’re building once and deploying everywhere.

Developer Platform Services

Each service is standalone: only use and pay for the integrations that matter most to you.

REAL-TIME BLOCKCHAIN STATE API

Deploy your game asset metadata directly to decentralized, distributed storage. Keep the ownership on-chain and game state decentralized.

img

CROSS-CHAIN ASSET TRANSFER SUPPORT

We provide Transfer Gateway oracles to let players instantly transfer their assets between chains. For chains that already provide them, we integrate them where supported.

img

GAME ASSET & PRE-SALE CONTRACTS SUPPORT

Looking for custom game contracts or to raise funds for your game? We have NFT and pre-sale contracts you can deploy, and we’ll work with you to design custom contracts.

TAP INTO THE BLOCKCHAIN GAME MULTIVERSE

Whatever assets your players own, you’ll have instant access to on-chain ownership and asset metadata to integrate into your game.

Bitcoin Lightning Network Integration

Accept Bitcoin for payments using the Lightning Network, and let players interact with your game contracts directly with Bitcoin
