Decentral Games Newsletter #29

Weekly Update - August 8, 2021

Welcome to the 29th edition of the Decentral Games Newsletter! Our objective is to keep our community informed of development progress, DAO treasury performance, and upcoming metaverse events. Join our Discord and follow us on Twitter.


✅ Last Week’s Summary

Last week welcomed the launch of two new partnered casinos in Decentraland powered by the Decentral Games npm package – The Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) Casino and The Aquarium Casino.

BAYC Casino

With a burgeoning metaverse-native community, Bored Ape Yacht Club is a perfect match for a partnered venue in Decentraland. Their river boat-themed venue features DG poker, roulette, blackjack, and even Ape croupiers, providing a perfect setting for apes to hang out in the metaverse.

The BAYC Casino launch event on Friday boasted 1,200+ attendees, with 400+ concurrent players. We look forward to hosting many more BAYC metaverse events in the future.

Aquarium Casino

The Aquarium casino was designed, built, and deployed by our close partner Vegas City in return for a revenue share with the DAO paid quarterly. The ocean-themed build features DG roulette and blackjack, as well as some animated fish that swim in tanks throughout the scene.

DG NPM Package

It was essential to build the DG npm package for internal use to easily keep all DG venues up-to-date following specific game optimizations and additions. However, it has gradually become a compelling and lucrative B2B product, as it enables any metaverse developer to deploy DG white label poker, blackjack, roulette, and slots into their scene in return for a revenue share with the DAO.

Metaverse poker lounges and casinos have become one of the most engaging ways to gather online crypto and NFT communities. Due to the highly scalable nature of our npm package product, we are excited to support many more aligned partners for custom metaverse poker lounges and casinos in the future.

If you are the head of a big online community and you are interested in launching your own metaverse poker lounge or casino, reach out to us on Discord!

Development Updates

Last week’s development progress was focused around poker and the new FREE Play gameplay and competition mode logic.

Poker

Heavy testing and continued optimization of MANA and DAI poker gameplay further prepared the game for public launch. We continue to incentivize community poker beta testing with DG/NFT prizes for tournaments at 12pm EST and 8pm EST each day. Sign up in our Discord channel to compete!

Website

The website now features a new and improved top menu navigation for desktop and mobile with improved branding and ease of use.
