I am one of the beta testers for @steempunknet and in this post I just want to briefly explain what this game is all about and how it works. Keep in mind this is still in early stages of beta so there will be many more features and functionality added to this game. I just want to provide more info and get more people interested in trying it out.
So what is STEEMPPUNK-NET?
Basically in its current state it is a game that works in conjunction with the steemit.com social network. Meaning that when you use steemit.com on a daily basis you get experience and rewards for the character that you have created in the STEEMPUNK-NET game.
So as you upvote, create posts, reply to comments your character in the game gets experience and levels up.
Also as you browse and read posts on steemit.com you can find treasure/loot that will help you advance your character. They randomly appear on the page as shown below.
Another feature is you can duel against other steemit.com users who have the game installed. You just go to the blog page of another user and you can attack them. The battle algorithm is automatic so you don't have to do anything, just wait and see if you won or lost the battle.
Fighting against other players levels up your character.
How does it work?
Currently the way the game works is that it is just a plugin browser extension you have to download and enable.
For installation help and instructions join us on Discord here
The current latest version of the plugin can be downloaded here
Once you download it and enable it an icon will appear on the top right of your browser.
When you click on the icon select STEEMPUNK-NET and a menu will open. Now you will have to use SteemConnect to login. Put in your Steemit.com username and your MEMO private key on the screen below and sign in.
And that is it, you have created your STEEMPUNK-NET character.
Basically if you like playing video games of any kind there is no reason why you should not join in on the fun. Since you are already using steemit.com this just adds another layer of social interaction with other steemit users. This game is still in its infancy and there is much more to come, here you can read the latest plans from the developers
There will also be a lot of ideas provided by the beta testers to improve this game and make it a fun MMORPG. In future posts I will definitely provide ideas to improve this game. Thanks for reading hope to see you on the battle field so I can kick your ass ;p
