After being available in closed alpha for quite some time, Nestables has now made their early alpha version available to the public as a free-to-play demo. Players who don’t any Nestables NFTs will get a generic Nestable to play and explorer the pre-alpha game. The early version of the game doesn’t store any data onto the blockchain, and therefore progress will not carry over to the beta.
Even though Tribal Gaming has been working on Nestables for quite some time, they do warn that the game is still in early development. “It’s by no means finished or bug free”, they wrote in their blog. However, they have been adding quite some content to their game since the closed alpha launch in October last year.
This free-to-play version of Nestables won’t be patched or updated. It’s literally an “as is” product.
In Nestables players need to farm resources using their cubed character. After doing that, players can build all kinds items ranging from beds and kitchens to food and toys. It’s important to keep your Cube happy, so players will need to build toys and furniture that fit the cube’s personality. The cute little Cubes have their own treats, cosmetic features and personality.
Nestables has been in development for quite some time already. The game is part of the Enjin multiverse. Enjin is a gaming project on the Ethereum blockchain. They want to create a metaverse in which game items can be used in several games. They use their standardized ERC-1155 protocol for that. For example, if you have a Nestables character NFT you will see a little Cube following you around while diving into the dungeons of Lost Relics.
Enjin is working hard into making their layer-2 solutions hit the market. Most likely Nestables will also tap into at least one of these. On April 6th Enjin will launch Jumpnet, which is a bridge network that allows free tokens transfers. It’s basically a private blockchain based on Ethereum. Users will be able to trade their items on the Ethereum mainnet by transferring them over and paying a gas fee. However, all transaction on Jumpnet itself are free of charge.
Efinity is the product that has been in the spotlight the most over the past year, even though we didn’t know much yet. Now Enjin has revealed that their blockchain solution is interoperable with multiple blockchains: both existing and upcoming ones. However, they didn’t reveal any details yet.
