Gala Games Wants Tactical Shooter FASTR to Join Ecosystem

FASTR MI Studios Gala Games

Gala Games has launched a proposal to add FASTR, a team-based tactical shooter, to their ecosystem. Users operating a Gala Network node will now get to vote on the proposal, which would make them eligible for a combined 8.5% of all NFTs and tokens. Voting ends today on November 1st.

The proposal suggests to give FASTR’s game studio Melbourne Interactive Studios a total of $1 million in funding. The funding would come from the Gala Games Game Development Fund, which contains a total of $100 million.

FASTR is a 5v5 tactical first-person shooter, which means you could perhaps compare the game with Rainbow Six Siege. Players need to pick an operator, each with their own set of skills and attributes. Players can acquire a set of operators, so that will can always pick the right character for the job at hand. At the moment there are no plans to integrate a token into the game.

Will Gala become GALA exclusive?

Gala Games considers making their NFTs exclusive to those who pay using their native GALA token. At the moment Gala Games allows users to buy NFTs within their ecosystem using ETH, BAT and their own native token GALA. However, the company considers to make GALA the sole currency for all NFT sales in their Gala Games ecosystem.

In September Gala Games announced a renewed pricing system for their Founder’s Nodes, an independent blockchain run by the community. Instead of a price increase of $100 for every 100 node licenses sold, starting from October 1st the price will increase $500 with every 100 nodes sold. However, the maximum price someone will ever pay for a node would be $100.000. However, users will only be able to buy these nodes using GALA token.

Internally Gala Games has already has discussions about making this change effective across the entire ecosystem. This would make GALA the exclusive token for all games in the entire Gala Games ecosystem, which includes Town Star, Mirandus, Echoes of Empire, Spider Tanks and perhaps very soon FASTR as well.
