JBB.ONE: Hi, James, I am very glad that you can accept our interview! Please tell us about yourself and your team, why do you want to develop the "Project Genesis" game?
James: Hi, my name is James Mayo. I worked with the outstanding team 8 Circuit Studio to develop games with the power of blockchain. Most of us come from video game companies like Nintendo, Microsoft, Wargaming.net and Capcom, so we are trying to bring the development of 3A games to the blockchain industry.
We decided to develop the Project Genesis game because we wanted to bring new game types to the players (Space Warfare + First Person Shooter) and show them some cool new things that might appear when using the blockchain.
JBB.ONE: Can you give us a general introduction of Project Genesis? How does the game work?
James: Project Genesis is a free game that combines exciting space warfare and first-person perspective. This is a 5v5 battle where players use the spacecraft to attack and try to sneak into the opponent's main ship to attack them. We are working hard to achieve a seamless transition from space warfare to first-person team battles.
JBB.ONE: What makes Project Genesis more outstanding than other space games? What is the most interesting feature?
James: We think the biggest difference is that players can experience the transition between the space battle of the third person perspective and the first person battle in the main ship. This is a unique battle mechanism that moves from the outside to the inside of two different sized ships. We believe that the transition of this scene is novel and special.
JBB.ONE: How do you come up with this idea by planning to use the blockchain with Project Genesis?
James: In 2008, the United States suffered a very serious financial crisis. After many years, we have seen that blockchain can help some people get out of the unstable financial system. The game is a very interesting way to encourage people to use the blockchain.
When we started developing Project Genesis, we discovered the secret superpower of the blockchain: persistence. This means that players can have their own items outside of the game world. In addition, they can use these blockchain-based items with other related games!
JBB.ONE: Have you encountered any difficulties in developing Project Genesis?
James: A year ago, we wanted Project Genesis to be a simple game that allowed players to quickly become familiar with the game, so we developed the first version, which is a Rogue-Like game, but this type of game usually a randomly generated turn-based system. This version is too complicated and not very interesting, so we have to seriously think about what went wrong.
We decided to take advantage of our strengths and develop the types of games we have experienced before. These advantages come from our experience in the first-person shooter "Halo" and the vehicle battle game "Mechwarrior 4." When we started working in this direction, we found the core of Project Genesis and were very excited about the change in design direction.
JBB.ONE: Can you introduce us to the reward mechanism in the Project Genesis game?
James: We use Unreal Engine to develop games, which allows us to learn a great technology from Chinese game development colleagues: rapid prototyping. This technology allows us to quickly and orderly discover the fun and rewards of the game.
In Project Genesis, players will experience a new style of play, and they will be able to earn boats, weapons and many new skins. In addition, players will have the opportunity to acquire character-based blocks with special qualities. These characters can evolve over time and players will be able to trade, sell or give away these roles in the secondary market outside of our ecosystem.
JBB.ONE: You have announced that you are ready to open the registration. Can you disclose more details to us?
James: Yes, we are looking for players who like the wonderful space warfare and first-person perspective. We hope that they can become a member of our community and help us test and develop the best games. We see them as test pilots, and if they are selected after joining our Discord, they will even get a badge.
JBB.ONE: What surprises can the future Project Genesis give us? Do you plan to offer players a gift or design more characters?
James: Project Genesis is a real-time game, so we will continue to add features such as characters, ships, game modes, and downloadable content for storylines.
JBB.ONE: How do you think the development of blockchain games in 5 years, more specifically, in the long run, what will happen to 8 Circuit Studio?
James: We believe that with the development of this technology, more and more people will start to use the blockchain. Since innovation is essential, five years later we will see a significant increase in the number of companies focusing on blockchain. Hope this makes the blockchain easier to work with... if we can get the job done right, the whole process is transparent to the user.
Obviously we want to be part of the user story, and we think that if we can provide players with a compelling and fun game, we can be successful. But first, we need to complete Project Genesis!
