YouTube streamer Dr DisRespect revealed its first peek at the shooter game called Deadrop on Saturday.
The initial reaction was mixed, however, with some feeling frustrated by the game’s lack of polish, with Dr.
User Jonesy_Actual stated that the game currently looks “like a Chuck E Cheese shooter,” while MemeCyptum sarcastically chimed in: “Dr Disrespect tried to make an NFT game and he looks like an ass? Shocked, I tell you.”
However, others have called for patience, as the game is still in its early stages of development and will likely undergo many changes before the final release is completed.
“Lol, this is in a very early stage of development but people still need to hate? It is at least being clear about development, and it shows every stage as it comes.” L1GHTNING96 wrote: Just an obvious dislike of the game for its sake.
Dr DisRespect has over four million subscribers on YouTube and 2.4 million followers on Twitter. He recently launched what he called Triple-A game studio called Midnight Society, which has partnered with Polygon Studios to develop gaming NFTs across Polygon’s Ethereum scaling network.
Early shots show a simplified first-person shooter style gameplay with a player running and shooting targets in a gun field.
The new game is expected to use NFTs to give users digital ownership of in-game items and rewards.
According to the Midnight Society’s website, it recently sold all 10,000 tokenized Founders Passes, which included playable avatars for the Deadrop. NFTs also provide early access to the game, along with voting rights over the integration of game features and a host of other benefits. Polygon-based NFTs went for $50 per pop and were used as a way to fund game development.
The Shiba Inu (SHIB) memecoin team has revealed the name of the upcoming NFT mobile game for the project in partnership with PlaySide Studios.
The game is titled Shiba Eternity, and the SHIB team has revealed that it will be available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. It is being developed as part of the project’s broader goal of building a metaverse ecosystem and will be compatible with Shiboshi NFTs.
The game will come in two modes, a regular free-to-play mobile game and a version that includes NFTs and play for profit features.
