Speculators and enthusiasts are still quite interested in the blockchain gaming sector.
Regrettably, it gets harder and harder for projects to keep users. Although continually increasing the player base for Web3 games is challenging, recent advances on Polygon provide some hope.
Development of Polygon Blockchain Games
For the majority of blockchain games on Polygon, February 2023 has come to a thrilling conclusion. Gaming, NFTs, and DeFi activity will change as the focus on L2 solutions sharpens. Polygon will have a dominant position in these markets if it continues to expand its audience. Even if the majority of the network’s games witnessed a rise in weekly active wallets, that is sometimes easier said than done.
With almost 50,000 active wallets every week, Planet IX continues to be the most popular Polygon-based Web3 game. Despite the fact that the aggregate figure is not particularly outstanding, that is a robust 17.4% gain for WoW. The ideal weekly player count for many popular video games is 50,000. Building enduring game economies is difficult, particularly when cryptocurrencies are involved.
Arc8 by GAMEE (23.3k, +235.9%) and Benji Bananas (31.3k, +11.5%) also had a strong week. Interesting in particular is the rise of Arc8. That seems to suggest that occasionally the crowd completely disappears before coming back in force. Even yet, a weekly increase in active wallets of 300% is amazing. Playbit, which observed 289% more active wallets last week, makes a similar observation. Overall, there are encouraging indicators for blockchain gaming on Polygon.
Even yet, it isn’t very reassuring to discover that just four projects have more than 7,500 active wallets every week. In addition to the three already stated, Ultimate Champions has 11k weekly active wallets. Only 5,300 active wallets were noted by The Sandbox last week, a drastic decline. Aavegotchi is also growing again, with a 12% growth.
A strong publisher rivalry
In contrast to popular gaming, each Polygon game is created by a unique publisher and team. It’s encouraging that no publisher appears twice in the top 10. It is frequently preferable to concentrate on and excel in one Web3 title. Overstretching oneself results in copy-paste game experiences, odd monetization strategies, and a less enjoyable overall experience. These top games on Polygon all deliver a good experience and take various tacks.
Notably, according to active users, Planet IX is the fourth-largest blockchain game. It trails Farmers World, Splinterlands, and Alien Worlds in popularity. The top-ranked positions of Arc8 and Benji Bananas, respectively, at #8 and #9, attest to the network’s rapid growth. The Web3 game industry’s biggest challenge is still sustainability. All ecosystems, including game makers, still have work to do.
