Voyager: Ascension Launches on GalaChain Amid Plans for Cardano Gaming Expansion

Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, has recently made headlines with his latest venture – a move into the world of blockchain gaming. In an announcement, he revealed that his “first game” will be released via a trailer, marking this new chapter for the Cardano ecosystem

Introducing Voyager: Ascension

Voyager: Ascension, is a collaboration between Hoskinson’s company Input Output Global (IOG) and RFLXT, a company under the IOG portfolio. 

The game is a fast-paced sci-fi shooter game, similar to Overload, and is currently available for free on Gala Games. However, players also have the option of purchasing a low-cost token season pass to enhance their gaming experience. Voyager: Ascension initially launched as a single-player game but has plans for a multiplayer mode in the future.

The Role of RFLXT

RFLXT is a spinout from IOG and has big plans for the world of blockchain gaming. Their strategy involves licensing and transforming classic PC games, such as the 2018 title Overload, into new and improved versions that utilize Web3 technology.

While RFLXT is a part of the IOG portfolio, they are not exclusively focused on the Cardano platform. Instead, their goal is to foster growth and presence across multiple chains and platforms, with Cardano being one of them. This aligns with Hoskinson’s vision for Cardano as a blockchain platform that can support a wide range of applications and use cases.

One of RFLXT’s main goals is to achieve interoperability across various platforms, allowing for seamless integration and collaboration between games. They have already formed significant partnerships, such as with Gala, which will help further their mission. This also opens up opportunities for cross-platform gameplay and the possibility of expanding the Cardano ecosystem.

The Future of Gaming on Cardano

RFLXT’s platform is set to showcase a unique feature called Digital Doubles, which will allow influencers and streamers to interact with games in various ways. Furthermore, AI-driven integration will add a new level of immersion for players. The full capabilities of the RFLXT platform, including Digital Doubles, will be revealed at the Rare Evo conference in Las Vegas later this year.

With Charles Hoskinson’s latest venture into blockchain gaming, Cardano is making a bold move to establish itself as a leading platform for next-generation games. RFLXT’s Voyager: Ascension is just the beginning, and we can expect to see more innovative projects emerging from this collaboration.
