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!)

All of the minted characters!

Huh, this is really cool. Blockchain is one of those cool technologies and wrapping that into games seems cool.

What do you think about this?

This looks awesome, Adam. I kind of want to mint a character, but I feel like I probably missed the window.

Wow, just joined the discord and it sounds like the lowest cost per character will be $250 during the auction. Count me out.

About Steam blocking NFT games, that makes sense, but I don't think it really matters. The Strange Clan will be browser based, so it doesn't need any platform to distribute the game.

Also, the crypto ecosystem is pretty active on social medias, so when new projects launch, there's enough chatter that a platform isn't needed to connect the game/project to users.

And yeah, this is spendy! I hope over time I'll gain my money back, but there definitely is a high bar to entry. The whitelist for the first Town has closed, but like you saw, there's a Dutch auction on Monday, and then in a month or two there will be another minting for Town 2 :)
