News @ Block & Chain
Happy New Year everyone! It’s 2019 and we have some big things coming your way. You’ve heard plenty about Blockfight and Draggin’ Dragons. Both of those games are nearing release as you know, but we also have a smorgasbord of new game announcements, partnerships and other exciting updates coming your way this year!
Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter if you want it delivered to your inbox each week.
Announcing Player Central!
We’ve teased Player Central in our newsletters and in our whitepaper, but today, we are opening the kimono. As gamers, we all enjoy platforms like Steam, Battle.net, Xbox Live Arcade and the Sony Playstore. There is a lot of appeal to an all-in-one platform where players can enjoy not just their favorite games, but a personalized space to celebrate their achievements and socialize with their friends. Block and Chain’s Player Central is our answer to those platforms, bringing your personalized player experience to life on the blockchain!
Initially, Player Central will include features such as an integrated player wallet, single sign on to all our games, player profile & stats, achievements, live support, and a news feed. Additional features such as friends, live chat, guilds, and other enhancements will be added throughout the year. This is a real competitive advantage for Block and Chain Games, with very few blockchain competitors offering a gamer-centric platform like this. For us, it’s just another great way to bring great games to our players.
Look for Player Central v1 launching later this quarter!
Each game has its own feature page you can explore before you play. Or you can just dive right into the game!
Blockfight Update - Closed Beta has begun!
Our limited time pre-launch beta has begun. Those who have signed up to participate are playing the game as we speak and assisting us in making Blockfight the best game it can be! And feedback has been extremely positive so far.
We will be running the beta until January 11th so there is still time to participate. If you want to get in on this limited time opportunity simply sign up on our contact page: https://blockandchain.games/support.html
Once we have finished polishing the game, it will be ready for launch!

What’s hot in gaming, on and off the blockchain? Here’s where you find out!
https://blockonomi.com/crypto-art-puzzles-games/ - The idea of a crypto art that hides a puzzle which pays cash is a new one. There aren’t many precedents for something that is both art and a paying puzzle.
B&C: It has been said in game circles that all the great ideas have been used up and new games are simply a different spin on existing mechanics. Yet, here we are with a totally new type of puzzle game that could only come about with the power of blockchain technology. Imagine solving procedurally generated puzzles that offer varying ranges of payoff determined by the blockchain. Now imagine if those puzzles could be user generated and could be sold or traded with other players. Do you keep a puzzle in the hopes of solving it for an unknown reward or do you sell it to another player for a more certain return? The possibilities are endless in this blockchain-only game genre. When someone next asks you “why blockchain” for games, here is a perfect response!
