ABOUT GALA GAMES
Gala Games was founded with one goal in mind: to give power back to the gamers. The company's mission is to enable freedom through play. This led them to embark on one of their most ambitious endeavors, the development of the Gala Games Ecosystem. Gala Games was founded by Eric Schiermeyer (co-founder of Zynga and gaming legend), Wright Thurston (one of the first major cryptocurrency miners and holder of multiple blockchain patents), and Michael McCarthy (creative director behind viral gaming hits such as Farmville 2). The first game released by Gala Games, Town Star, is a deceptively simple looking but incredibly deep farming simulation in which user builds a farm to compete in weekly competitions. At various places, NFTs can be used in the game to provide bonuses but are not required to play, have fun, or compete. Mirandus, the MMORPG/Adventure Simulator currently under development by Gala Games is working to completely redefine both the game development pipeline, as well as the gameplay model by putting the power in the hands of the players and giving them ultimate control over the in-game economy.
The decentralized Gala Games Ecosystem aspires to blow the doors wide open and give players back the control they deserve. Players get to truly own what they win in their games. If you earn or win a magical sword on the Gala Game Platform, it is yours. Your items and any inherited status is a verifiable asset on the blockchain you can trade to another person or play with in-game. Through decentralization, players not only own their in-games items, but they have a voice in how the Gala Games roadmap develops. Players and node owners are enlisted, via distributed voting mechanisms, to help determine what games should be added to the platform or what should be funded by the decentralized Gala Games ecosystem.
FEATURED GALA GAMES ECOSYSTEM TITLES
The world of Mirandus is ruled by five player-monarchs in an epic fantasy role-playing game. The games give players complete freedom of choice: they can head out alone into the wilderness to face monsters in the deep woods and dungeons, serve with one of the monarchs at their court, or set up shop in one of the five great cities. A central mechanic in the game involves player ownership of in-game assets. Players can own land deeds, which allow them to claim parts of the wilderness and build everything from small farms to massive cities. In Mirandus, you decide who you will be and choose your own quest in the epic fight against evil.
