This weekend, I played a handful of blockchain games from Levana Protocol (https://twitter.com/Levana_protocol)

Salim's Adventure is an 8-bit side scroller that took a few hours for me to get the hang of (some of the hit detection isn't perfect, so I kept running into some spikes lol). It's a fun Mario-type game where you can jump on enemies, avoid spikes, and at the end defeat a dragon ghost. If you're into side scrollers, I recommend checking it out :)

Alchemy is an ingredient combining game. To master "future space science," you need to combine ingredients to find new ingredients and keep combining them until you've mastered it all.

Arach Attack is a puzzle game, where you're attempting to find ways to kill all the spiders, and get your hero to the next level.

All three games require you to have Keplr browser extension wallet (I can help you set that up if you'd like https://www.keplr.app/), and a little bit of Juno (the cryptocurrency the games run on). I don't belive there are any crypto prizes left for playing these games, but they're still fun to experience for an afternoon. I can send you a little Juno to cover your fees, just let me know if you're interested!

In addition to these three Levana Protocol games, the game I'm looking forward to the most is Strange Clan. It's still a couple years out, but hopefully there's going to be a vertical slice demo at the end of this year, or possibly the beginning of next year. I own some of these character NFTs (each of the starting 10,000 characters are unique, but in the future there will be many more characters to buy to play, and they'll be much less expensive. The team is shooting for a price comparable to a WoW subscription), and I love the way the development team is progressing! They're also incredibly transparent, as we have calls 3 times a week on discord, and they update us on progress. Here's the latest promo video: https://twitter.com/thestrangeclan/status/1542925162332540928


CodeParade, the creator of the non-Euclidean geometry game Hyperbolica (I *highly* recommend checking out his videos on that game) is now experimenting with building a game in 4D.

This video is a fun breakdown on what a 4D game could look like and talks about some of the attempts at building 4D games already.

I love thinking about higher dimensions, so this was right up my alley. Hopefully you find it interesting too!

At the end of this month, Samsung Smart TVs (from 2022, not older) will have the new XBox App, and players will be able to stream games without a console!

I love Samsung TVs, but mine is a bit older (2014). The next time I buy a new TV, I will definitely stick with Samsung, and just might get a Game Pass to start playing games again!

Gaming without a console is a game-changer (no pun intended 😆)

What say you? Would you be interested in going console-less with a Smart TV?

Growing up, I loved Rescue Rangers, and the NES game is an absolute classic.

This movie... I don't know how to describe it, but it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun!

It's not a trailer that I would normally click ok, but I heard this was an experience, and I wasn't disappointed!



If you follow me on Twitter, no doubt you've seen how into cryptocurrency I've gotten. But I've withheld from talking about it in Cheerful Ghost because I didn't want to look like I was pushing something like an MLM, nor am I wanting to give financial advice lol.

But, now there's a game I can share about!

The Strange Clan is a fantasy game where players have unique NFT (non-fungible token, basically a unique digital asset that's saved "to the blockchain" to prove ownership) with which they can eventually farm, quest, explore, etc.

The game is pre-alpha currently, so there's nothing to try out yet, other than buying our characters, but the world is being built on Passage 3D (https://passage3d.com/) which is a virtual shared space, created for virtually meeting others, so eventually when the alpha goes live next year, we'll be able to start exploring.

There are thousands of unique combinations of charater/class/options/stats, so *every( character will be unique! I got a Rabbit and a Frog character, which I believe are a Mercenary and Hunter respectively.

I made this video to talk more about what The Strange Clan is, and my minting process (it's like the old school days of opening a baseball card pack to see what you got!)

I didn't expect to be excited about a Hawkeye show. I generally am not a fan of the character.

But, I *love* that this is leaning heavily into the Christmas theme! I hope the show keeps that vibe throughout!

Also, "Rogers: The Musical"? YES PLEASE


My childhood just came rushing back!

I had *all* the He-Man toys (probably nowhere near "all" lol) as a kid, but eventually gave them away to a neighbor kid... and then would go over to his house and play with the toys with him lol.

I LOVE He-Man, and this trailer looks so good! I will definitely be watching this on Netflux next month!


HOLY HYPE, BATMAN (er, Nighthawk?)

Marvel just released a nice look back on the movies that came before, then shows clips of Black Widow and Shang-Chi... Then shows clips from The Eternals! Then goes on to reveal all their Phase 4 movie titles and release dates!

I cannot wait to watch all of these!


2 of my interests are colliding on Friday!

https://akash.network/blog/akashcraft-minecraft-on-the-first-decentralized-cloud/

In collaboration with the MothRuby community, we will be running a scavenger hunt for 1000 AKT in the world’s first Minecraft server hosted on Akash. Akashcraft will be the first scavenger hunt ever for a cryptocurrency in a Minecraft server hosted on a decentralized cloud. Yes, this is extremely meta. Yes, you should be excited for this historic event.

The Akash Network is a decentralized cloud computing network that runs on their cryptocurrency "AKT." I already own some AKT, so I'm biased, but I'm a huge fan of Akash and am excited to see where it goes. Currently 1 AKT approximately equals $5.66, but the value fluctuates, similar to a stock price.

If you're interested in finding AKT in a Minecraft treasure hunt, I highly recommend you get your wallet setup before playing, as you'll need a place to deposit the AKT you find. There's a link in the article about how to set up a wallet through Cosmostation. If this is your first wallet, it can be a little daunting, but just keep following the steps 😀
(Here's the link, so you don't have to hunt for it

If you have any questions about your wallet, feel free to reach out to me and I'll try and help 😀)

Happy Hunting! Make sure you join the livestream event Friday 4/30 6PM PST!
