“Rune Seeker” is a modern strategy card game that combines elements of turn-based strategy with blockchain technology. It is set in the enchanting realm of Norse Mythology and is scheduled to be launched on the Avalanche blockchain. This choice of blockchain ensures speed, scalability, and the ability to accommodate a large number of concurrent users. The game has received support from Ava Labs, emphasizing its goal of bringing true ownership to the world of card gaming. The game’s lore is set in the Age of Origin, where ancient gods shaped the world, but conflicts among their creations led to chaos. To restore balance, new races emerged, and the game’s storyline revolves around the struggle to prevent a cataclysmic war caused by the god Nul and the discovery of powerful runestones called “The Fallen Runes.” In terms of gameplay, “Rune Seeker” introduces dynamic elements like terrain and runes, which offer various strategic possibilities. Each match begins with commanders deploying three units on random map-generated tiles. Units are affected by their elemental surroundings, aligning with Earth, Water, Fire, and Air principles. The game consists of 3-4 rounds, each with Command and Action phases. Commanders strategically position champions and use runes to direct units and manipulate terrain. The Action Phase involves executing actions such as attack, defense, transformation, fusion, or summoning. Victory is achieved by eliminating all enemy units or depleting runes. Matches may accelerate after three rounds, triggering the “Land of Chaos.” Mastery of the game’s intricacies is crucial for success. Players can engage in real-time PvP combat in the Battle Arena, embark on PvE adventures in dungeons to uncover the game’s lore, and participate in special campaigns and side quests.
Regarding tokenomics, the game adopts a non-inflationary model. Players do not earn tokens through a Free-to-Play model, preventing token saturation as new players join. Token generation during vesting is also absent, with 45% of the total $RUNES supply gradually entering the market over the initial 1.5 years, including contributions from initial investors and a liquidity pool. Seed Investors have access to a specialized staking program, adding incentives for long-term holders.
The community response to “Rune Seeker” has been mixed, with some players expressing their enjoyment of the game, while others criticize aspects such as character design. However, the game’s Norse mythology stories have garnered positive feedback.
