Gods Unchained – a blockchain-based card game – has hired former Magic: The Gathering Arena (MTG Arena) game director Chris Clay, according to a press release.
Clay directed MTG Arena to global success, bringing the popular card game to three million active players with more than one billion games played.
The move means he will now be bringing his 20 years of experience in design and game development to his new position as the Gods Unchained game director.
Part of his new role will involve prioritising new game features, visual designs, and the overall community experience.
With the addition of Clay, Gods Unchained hopes that it will be able to reach new audiences and insert itself into the mainstream gaming market.
“I believe blockchain represents a new frontier for game developers,” says Clay.
“Digital asset ownership on the blockchain lets developers support games and their communities in ways we’ve never seen before in electronic gaming.
“A blockchain card doesn’t just sit in a database, it has the ability to travel the world and know where it’s been. eSports pros, streamers, and artists alike can digitally sign and sell digital items to fans.
“Blockchain isn’t just for digital currency; it is laying the foundation for a whole new digital economy.”
In the same announcement, it has been revealed that Gods Unchained will soon have debit card-enabled in-game purchases for booster packs to help make the game more accessible to wider audiences.
