Blockchain games first emerged in the early 2000s and have undergone several transformations. We all remember CryptoKitties, which literally exploded the crypto and gaming communities, with cartoon cats selling for millions of dollars to sophisticated collectors. They were followed by PokemonGo, Axie Infinity, and thousands of other entertainment games, whose goal was easy money and fun pastime.
The coronavirus epidemic and the prolonged crypto winter, which lasted for over a year, exposed the “narrow” areas of blockchain games. Of course, entertainment games can occupy you, but do they provide valuable and useful skills? Rather not! Today, the gaming world has turned not towards entertainment, but towards education. Dozens of simulation games are entering the market that can, if not instill, then give an idea of important skills. I believe that the pioneer of this trend was Mark Zuckerberg, who announced back in 2022 that he intends to launch about 10 virtual universities in the metaverse Meta, and education will be conducted in the form of games. So far, these statements remain on paper and in plans, but the concept of developing simulation games has proven to be in high demand on the market.Today, you can find dozens of such games. For example, the game 0xUniverse is essentially a simulator of space construction factories and plants. It’s clear that playing the game, you’re unlikely to learn how to build spaceships, but you will definitely understand how it works and what components a rocket or satellite consists of. Another example is MegaCryptoPolis, a city-building simulator where players must build buildings according to certain rules, beautify streets, and maintain order.
However, my team and I went further and decided to create our own business simulator, a digital analogue of Silicon Valley. Players don’t just play and complete tasks. They learn how to manage projects, build teams based on the knowledge and abilities of each member, maintain a warm climate within the team, and much more.
If you’re seeing the Bluelight game for the first time, you’ll definitely notice familiar graphics and interesting characters. Yes, the creators of the cult NFT cartoon Take My Muffin became our partners in developing the visual part of the game. But if you immerse yourself in the gameplay, every gamer will be able to find useful information or gain new skills. It’s like trading cryptocurrency on a demo account: you’re making real trades, but you’re not losing your money in case of failure. Demo trading allows you to acquire and consolidate basic trading skills and understand how orders work, how to read technical analysis, and what all these Japanese candles, figures, and curves mean. The same thing goes for Bluelight.
So what knowledge and skills do users gain just by playing the game:
1. The ability to plan is a skill that many people lack. Poor planning leads to wasting time on project implementation and, in some cases, losing money and clients. By playing Bluelight, you will learn to accurately plan the time needed to complete a task.
2. Delegation is another important factor in business. Not all tasks can be delegated, nor can they be assigned to every employee. You will understand this better if you assign a task to the wrong character. By studying the abilities and experience of the characters, you will learn to accurately determine the executor and delegate tasks to them.
3. Team building is a crucial component of a successful business. A strong and loyal team is half the battle. Our simulator helps you learn to identify and meet the needs of each team member, from their work environment to their salary and vacation.
Who will benefit from our game? I would say everyone, without exception, because these are skills that will definitely come in handy in life. However, I would particularly recommend playing Bluelight to novice entrepreneurs who are just taking their first steps in business. By the way, you can get exclusive access to the game here (email or contact form). Soon, we will launch an open beta version, and anyone will be able to play Bluelight.
