An alternate reality in which time travel is possible.
‘Cross the Ages,’ a mobile-only collectable card game based on free-to-read books, is available. It takes place in a dystopian future. Players fight for NFTs both individually and collectively and have the opportunity to print physical copies of the digital cards they collect.
Metaverse aspects, such as missions based on the books’ hints, will be added to the game by 2023. Cities and games may also be created by developers, artists, and players.
The CTA game’s beta will be live at the end of May, and digital and physical cards will be available in June. On top of that, the Defi protocols will provide players with access to farming, pooling and bonding for improved trading options inside the game’s infrastructure, which CTA will premiere in its NFT marketplace.
Co-founder and CEO Sami Chlagou tells CoinDesk in an email that the CTA Defi product will be available through the primary user interface, but it will function as a separate platform. This will help guarantee that CTA experiences do not detract from the dynamic and distinctive metaverse gaming experience we strive to create.
The CTA team presently consists of more than 140 people, including artists, writers, programmers, and business professionals. According to Chicago, the team will have grown to over 200 members by the end of this year and might reach as many as 250 members by the middle of 2023.
Christophe de Courson, co-founder and Chairman of Singapore-based CTA, also owns Pixel Heart, a game developer that has created over 50 titles for systems including Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation. he is in charge of the company.
It’s “truly unique” that Sami’s vision for “Cross The Ages” revolves around creating an innovative, multidimensional entertainment format that players can participate in and own – between books, collectable trading cards in physical and NFT formats, and video games – that players can own, said Borget of The Sandbox in a statement.
