The Chinese blockchain game CardMaker has released a list of in-game items and announced that the presale of its limited-edition “Creation Package” will begin on December 17th, 2018. CardMaker earned ¥1,000,000 CNY (approximately $145,000 USD) in this summer’s NEO.Game competition by winning the “Best Game Award” and the “Most Popular Award.”
CardMaker is a User-Generated Content (UGC) game that “focuses on content design, battles, and trading.” Players can create their own characters, cards, and levels in the game, and trade them to gain the upper hand in battles and achieve their goals in the game. A promotional video of the gameplay can be found here.
CardMaker In-Game Items
CAKE: “CardMaker Alchemists Knowledge Energy” is a blockchain token available in CardMaker; it will be deployed through a smart contract and is earmarked as a “stable token” in the CardMaker game.
Mana: The game’s common magic resource, which will also be used in game creation.
Elements: Fire, Water, Wind, and Earth, serving as “special attributes” in the game. Each element is effective against another element, and vulnerable to one of the other elements.
Card: One of the core elements that can be created by users, cards are used mainly for battles with some having special skills. Cards may be traded in the market.
Character: Another core element that is predominantly used for defense. Created by users, there are both frontline and rear characters, each with their own “hit point” (health) and “action point” attributes. Characters can also be traded in the market.
Workshop Tickets: Expand the player’s “Resource Pool.”
CardMaker’s presale of its Creation Package will be offered on December 17th, 2018 (UTC+8). Sales will be processed through the official CardMaker website at http://cardmaker.io/ (Chinese language).
