Free Games Reimagined
You’re probably wondering why almost all Gala Games are free-to-play games, so let’s discuss.
The simplest answer is because we can. This may mean very little to you, but we built a games-first blockchain called GalaChain from the ground up. GalaChain allows true item ownership and more, and GalaChain is the reason free play is not only possible, but rewarding.
With a huge wealth of AAA game development experience in-house, we combine effective free-to-play concepts from mobile games with cutting edge and empowering web3 tech. The fruits of this hybrid gaming tree are the ownership and reward opportunities that come with each and every game.
Own if You Want
Ownership is almost never a requirement to unlock or participate in a Gala Games experience, but some kinds of ownership can drastically increase your reward potential. Still, we find that players don’t just become owners of items in our games to amplify rewards. More often, they do it because leveling up to real ownership increases the fun factor, making it possible for players to enjoy what they otherwise might pass up.
Almost all our games have full free-to-play experiences built in that resemble those you’ll find in the highest quality mobile games of today. When players spend money on in-game currencies to quicken or enhance their gameplay, a portion of that daily spend typically goes into what we call a reward pool.
Free players will quickly see the benefits of ownership in our games, but ownership is almost never required to participate in these remarkable gaming experiences.
The reward pool is distributed to the top-performing players, regardless of the game they are participating in. Whether they’re free players or multiple item owners, everyone gets a fair chance at those rewards, which are typically offered in $GALA.
In addition to free-to-play purchase options (like Gems from Legacy or Champions Arena), we also see multiple rarities of GalaChain minted items, such as Land, Buildings and Mercenaries. The greatest benefit to owning these items is that they’re truly owned by the player, which means they can be listed and sold on secondary markets or traded within the platform among users. Owners also enjoy other benefits and perks, depending on the game.
A portion of sales from these purchased items is also used to feed the player reward pool. These carefully designed reward economies ensure that as long as people are playing, the rewards will flow. And we’re in the business of making some of the most exciting games the world has ever seen.
To summarize, don’t pass on one of our games just because it’s free to play. We want you to start playing for free so you can see the possibilities for yourself, and thanks to web3 and GalaChain, it’s all possible.
