Today March 26th at 12:00pm CST Allonian Seed's crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter begins! And Steem users get a special discount if you act fast! Link
I have been hard at work building the world of Allonian Seed and though there is still a long way to go I am confident that I will have something amazing for you by around this time next year. Assuming I can get the funding to go full time of course.
For those unfamiliar Allonian Seed is a game where you play as a bot created by a "seed" from a distant planet. The Seed integrates itself with compatible hardware and through the math-i-magical steem block chain it is able to spawn new parts and bots for you to play as. Basically, your posts on steem generate parts in the game, so if you don't post you don't get parts, the better your posts, the better your parts.
We hope to partner with curation initiatives to add even more rewards to those that are noticed by various groups here on steam.
The game, however, is only the tip of the iceberg and with funding I plan on having a studio and maker space built in my rural hometown. I will hold classes on game development and 3D art using the tools I've been using to create this game as well as any that I pick up along the way. The long term goal of course is to get more games on services like steemgg or possibly a service that I have been working on but am not quite ready to make public. Of course this store front would accept STEEM and will integrate as much of this community into the process.
You can find out more about the game by checking out @v-entertainment or my own feed.
Interested? Kickstarter Link
For those curious when complete I will have a node (possibily a full node) that the game will gather data from. I plan on making the barrier of entry as low as possible for new users by refunding some of the cost of the game into the STEEM ecosystem.
Keys will remain local and encrypted for the players benefit and they will have to re-authenticate (because all the steem stuff is on their local device) every time they change devices.
When released we will have a bot that likes posts from users that play the game. Though the main purpose will be to monitor the pulse of the game and the network the added benefits of scraping a little off the top of the reward pool will be nice.

Oh and special thanks to @soundwavesphoton for letting us use some of his music! It was hard picking which one would work best because they all had the sound I was looking for. Give him a follow, you'll be glad you did.
