Having hosted a closed pre-alpha test of its gameplay, Project Genesis is bringing the show to the gaming community. More specifically, this comes from the news that 8 Circuit Studios will be featuring the title on Steam – the online gaming community and marketplace from Valve.
In order to generate more hype from a previously unaware gaming community. The launch will also be featuring a new trailer to showcase some of the mechanics within the game.
While this is a positive step into the broader community, introducing Project Genesis to Steam allows the team to identify and resolve some issues in the undercurrent.
Specifically in how the game makes use of Ethereum to provide greater sovereignty and transparancy for players. More importantly, it presents an interesting acid test for blockchain games, and strike an effective balance between leveraging blockchain and appealing to a mass audience.
