FarmVille Creator Zynga Introduces Ethereum NFT Game ‘Sugartown’
“Never forget your roots. Sugartown is building a future inspired by the past and present,” the team behind the game said in a tweet.
The famous mobile game publisher is yet to announce specific details, but more information is expected to be revealed during a live chat in Spaces later today.
Meanwhile, the team has published another teaser for the upcoming game.
The video shows a workspace of some sort, featuring a ‘Degen Cookbook’ on the desk, with a flashing red warning displaying what seems to be a wormhole.
The incident intensifies, electricity flashes, a hole opens in the sky, the space-time tunnel widens, a whirlwind of smoke rises, and many creatures start exiting the wormhole – spelling trouble for an unsuspecting badger, sitting in his chair and reading.
Per a Decrypt report, the game features three farm animals – a rooster, a bull, and a pig – who have opened a portal to a different dimension.
However, creatures called Oras used the chance to cross into Sugartown. And there begins the game.
The exact release date is currently unknown.
10,000 Ora NFTs will be released later this year. Players will need these to join the game.
Holders of the NFTs will also be able to lock up or stake them to gather Sugar, which will be the in-game, non-crypto currency.
Finally, Ora NFTs will enable players to join free-to-play minigames within Sugartown.
“So excited to share this with the Web3 world. More soon,” said Zynga Vice President of Web3 Gaming Matt Wolf.
Cryptonews.com reached out to Zynga for comment.
Players accessing the services from a country outside the US also acknowledge that their personal information will be transferred and stored in the US, it added.
Revealed in January this year, the game promises a world full of events, supernatural phenomena, and NFT art.
Many commenters have provided positive feedback so far and are excited about the upcoming launch.
“Had to keep this a secret for over a year! Thanks to the Zynga team for bringing Pandez Labs along for the ride,” tweeted Pandez, a Web3 consultant and security expert who founded Pandez Labs.
