As we stand at the precipice of an extraordinary 2023, we reflect for a moment to witness the incredible growth and development Wizardia has accomplished. From a simple idea birthed over 10 years ago in the midst of a conversation amongst friends, to a working, immersive multiplatform game. 

 

Despite our remarkable progress, we recognise that the blockchain gaming industry is still in its early stages, and we are not immune to the immense challenges it faces. The recent bear market has had a significant impact on the NFT industry, with the floor price of many popular collections plummeting

 

These challenges and more as listed by Forbes have led to the closure of many blockchain-based games, with CoinGecko reporting that three-quarters of web3 games have failed in the past five years. 

 

While we did not accomplish all of our goals for 2023, such as building the market and unlocking NFTs, we are committed to building a sustainable and thriving ecosystem for Wizardia.

 

We believe that with perseverance and innovation, we can overcome these challenges and create a new era of gaming that is both engaging and profitable for players and developers alike.

 

Like the tortoise and the hare - slow and steady wins the race.


 

From Wizardia With Love

 

A Realm Forged by Wizards and Technology - Unveiling the Wizardia Account System

 

The Wizardia Account, a hub that empowers players to manage their NFTs, unlock rewards and more. This innovative feature has improved the way players interact with Wizardia, increasing user experience, accessibility and security.

 

Transparency In Reporting - Embracing the Power of CoinMarketCap

 

Our commitment to transparency has led us to the famous CoinMarketCap, the leading cryptocurrency market data platform. Our listing on this prestigious platform has solidified our commitment to upholding the highest standards of accountability and providing reliable reporting information to our community, and beyond.



 

Unleashing the Power of Magic - Training the Ultimate Wizards Through Level Progression

 

We have delved into the depths of game architecture, crafting a complex level progression system that allows players to enhance their wizards' abilities and unlock new skills. This intricate system adds layers of depth and replayability to the Wizardia, rewarding those who dare to push the boundaries of their magical prowess.

 

Power for Strategic Domination - Integrating Resources and Resource Drops

 

Our pursuit of strategic depth and progression has led us to the incorporation of resources and resource drops. These valuable elements provide players with the means to strengthen their Wizards and empower them to overcome even the most formidable foes. The unpredictable nature of resource drops adds an element of excitement and reward to each encounter.

 

A Compendium of Arcane Lore - Introducing a Diverse Cast of Wizards

 

Our dedication to detail has resulted in the creation of 15 unique wizards, each with their own distinct personalities, backgrounds, abilities and lore. These mystical figures embody diverse elemental alignments and specializations, allowing players to craft unstoppable teams that defy all expectations. Want to try them out? Rent them and try before you buy!

 

 

A Symphony of Wizard Mechanics - Unraveling Groundbreaking Abilities

 

Our commitment to innovation has manifested in the introduction of groundbreaking wizard mechanics. These dynamic abilities, such as Ergork's shield and Rose's lucky coin, add layers of strategic complexity, rewarding players for their mastery of tactical decision-making.

 

Arenas of Untamed Magic - A Crucible of Strategy and Conquest

 

Our journey has taken us to three distinct arenas. Players can battle in fiery pits of doom and destruction, icy peaks of snow capped mountains, and the futuristic ruins of a destroyed dystopian city. Each arena presents a unique battlefield where the fate of glory will be decided. After all, what’s a battle with our nifty arena?!

 

Equilibrium in the Digital Realm - Maintaining Balance Through Wizard Team Rebalancing

 

Our pursuit of growth and equilibrium has led us to continuously rebalance wizard teams, ensuring that all characters remain viable and balanced. This unwavering commitment to equilibrium guarantees that the game remains challenging and engaging for players of all skill levels. While more balancing is sure to be done soon, we have always welcomed our gamers feedback to find what can be nerfed and powered up!

 

Essence: The Lifeblood of Wizardia - A Currency of Possibilities

 

In harmony with our native WZRD token, we've introduced Essence, an in-game off-chain currency that empowers players to purchase consumables, wizards, wager and more. Essence fuels the pursuit of victory and the acquisition of ever-increasing power and an innovative web 2.5 solution to the barriers of blockchain gaming.

 

Forged by Partnerships - Expanding the Wizardia Community 

 

Our vision of a unified gaming community has led us to forge strategic partnerships with renowned projects like Gods Unchained and even a massive $2000 prize pool with Spintop. These collaborations have brought Wizardia to a wider audience, fostering innovation and cross-promotional opportunities. Together, we are shaping the future of blockchain gaming, one alliance at a time.

 

 

And last, but certainly not least....

Our Android launch has taken the community by storm and brings Wizardia to a broader player base. Additionally, we've introduced a new wizard rarity -  uncommon! Uncommon wizards provide a much more affordable and accessible option for players and allowing us to enter the Asian market and mobile, at the same time! 



So, after a tremendous year full of ups and downs and progression all round, you may be asking.. What's next for Wizardia? 

 

Well, Ask no more!

 

A Journey into the Dark - Phase 2 of Wizardia

 

As we move into phase 2 of development, we are poised to embark on a more audacious quest, one that will take us into the depths of the dark side of the digital realm. Our focus will be on marketing and presenting our project to a new and bigger mobile audience. 

 

In parallel to this, we aim to unlock unlocking NFTs, enhancing the PvE experience, and more little surprises and developments on the way.

 

So fellow Wizardians, the only question that remains is…

 

Are you ready for the Magic?
