After the success of Popcoin in the last build challenge I’ve been encouraged to take another stab at it.
This round my entry is taking a huge shift away from everything business and diving head long into the gaming world. I’ve never built a game before (unless this counts) so while I don’t expect to win any awards I do aim to make this a fun and engaging game while also creating an easy to understand and multi faceted open source application showcasing a strong handful of Stellar’s most primary and powerful features.
The game play and concept is simple. Create and trade glyphs from a pixel grid with a limited set and number of colors. Each color represents its own cryptocurrency code. You create your own collection of glyphs and then begin to trade those glyphs in your collection with glyphs from other users. As you trade glyphs back and forth you collect the colors which made up those glyphs. The more you trade the more colors you collect and thus the more detailed and colorful glyphs you can create. Each trade then is made up of many various color cryptocurrencies within the Stellar network. Stellar holds a currency ledger for each user containing what and how much of each color they have to use.
That’s pretty much it. Simple, yet fun and informative. Seems like a perfect blend to me. What do you think? Any great ideas either for either gameplay or for features I should surface from the Stellar SDK?
