This is a reference point for the initiative NFTs in Cardano and every two weeks we will invite someone to answer some questions and give us Update directly from within the Cardano community.
Considering that most of our readers are new to the crypto space, we will have A mix of simple and technical questions.

What is AdaQuest? And why did you choose the Cardano blockchain specifically for your gaming project?
Let’s admit it! What we’re missing right now are games that will give you a chance. Experience the deep dive, immersion and vibration of the world you interact with.
As AdaQuest and an independent game studio, we will bring this experience back. A fantasy world, our awesome hand drawn NFTs Not only will it have a use case, but it will also give players the power to own, develop and expand their properties. Without fear that one day a publisher – even a game studio – might take it away. Their achievements by spending all their hours in the Island World.
dream of getting The best of different RPG game modes of the last 30 years and creating a new gaming experience. Also imagine having 30 years of Pen & Paper experience!
This is AdaQuest! because The AdaQuest team has this experience. Not only in the hobby and leisure segment, but also in the professional environment.
What makes it special is On-chain management of all player inventory on Cardano Blockchain. This means that almost everything a player earns in AdaQuest (except for essential items) is in terms of valuable items. It belongs to the player forever! No more fear of someone shutting down servers or deciding to ban items forever. AdaQuest is a modding-friendly project, at least in late development.
In addition to this originality, The first three game modes are designed to be intertwined.. Giving today’s modern gamers/people the option to play their favorite role-playing game or interact with the community at every opportunity. Each mode can of course be played independently, but You will get the best experience while enjoying the three modes related to rpg. (Mobile Arena and Quests, Dungeon Crawler, Skirmish Battlefield)
And why Cardano?
Firstly The staking mechanism in Cardano allows us to interact with the community and AdaQuest supporters. Proof of Stake is absolutely secure and we as Single Stake Pool Operator will never lock your ADA like major exchanges.
Second, to take full advantage of Cardano Blockchain, promotion of our own local icon it was just a matter of time. We knew that such a system would be inevitable if we wanted to exist as a share pool. We can already see how wonderfully this mechanism we invented will affect AdaQuest. People seem to like our NO Pay2Win approach. That’s why QuestToken will not only be a reward system for long-term backers, but will also take each of our backers into consideration. QuestToken will never affect game mechanics.
Finally, we think the past weeks have shown us cases of blockchain and how terrible a bad technology design can be in this environment. The one and only fixed, secure and robust answer to this is Cardano!
What is Play-Win? What do you think about this phenomenon in games? How does AdaQuest fit into this?
we love the term P2Loot more. What we don’t like is that Gambling comes with some projects and also focuses only on this aspect of the game. AdaQuest is more about the game itself. We are game developers, we are also gamers! So we made a decision F2Play mode without paywall. But of course, you’ll be able to get NFTs as a drop on AdaQuest.
Moreover, we think The future of NFT gaming will ‘force’ the target group into three camps. on the one hand there are real playersThose who truly love competition, adventure and real, deep game mechanics. on the other hand gamblersone who likes tossing a coin and focuses on the winning mechanism. will be the last group mix of gaming and gambling. As a gaming company, we think that in order to compete, you need to build an experience that serves both sides!
We sat down and looked at many current so-called F2Play games. Especially those with blockchain technology in use. More than 90% of these successful games can only be “played” with significant financial efforts from the player.. We quickly concluded that we wanted to do things differently. Here we took Fortnite from Epic Games as our role model. In this game, there are only cosmetic virtual items that do not make the player better or worse. Whether you’re playing a superhero or an alien banana, It’s not the player’s wallet, but the skill that matters!
Now AdaQuest is not a Battle Royale shooter, and yet we do not own the resources of Epic Games. Alex and Christian worked with our entire team on a mechanic with a constant focus on justice.
How is AdaQuest’s development going? When will it be possible to play the game?
Stable! From the very beginning, our approach is not to exaggerate the project and grow healthy. That’s why we don’t like to promise too much and deliver less. We are currently in full swing to finish our mobile WebApp Alpha (duel mode) and integrate NFT elements.. We’re cheering a lot for June 2022
Over the last 6 months, we’ve spent a lot of time building tools and recruiting people to accelerate AdaQuest’s development this year. Since creating a game is not an “industrial” procedure and everything is always in motion, things may break, take longer, or require a different approach to deliver an enjoyable experience in the end.
Please remember that we too At the concept stage for our Phase 2 (dungeon crawler) including the creation of a prototype 🙂
Fantastic! Do you have any final thoughts? Where can people find you?
