Pixel RPGs that are fun to play while also being truly rewarding are a dying breed. But the team behind Portal Fantasy aims to turn that around.
Designed from the ground up to be a community-focused RPG that places user-generated content at the forefront, Portal Fantasy is here to make sure it grows into a game that stands the test of time.
Portal Fantasy’s game mechanics are very reminiscent of old-school Pokémon and Zelda games. Its level progression, which features traveling to multiple worlds, is very Metroidvania-esque. But it also stands very much on its own two feet with a fresh spin on the pixel RPG—community contributions.
The game’s backers and partners are nothing short of incredible, Makers Fund, Blizzard Fund, Ava Labs, YGG SEA, Avalaunch, GFR Fund, Infinity Ventures, Genesis Block Ventures, Keychain Capital, C2 Ventures, Mirana, Wave Financial, D1 Ventures. Their faith in Portal Fantasy speaks volumes about its potential to set a new standard in blockchain games.
Players can choose two playstyles when starting Portal Fantasy: Hero or Architect. The former allows you to explore various hub-sized worlds using the Portal Altar. In them, Heroes can befriend and train Porbles, who are magical creatures that dwell within the worlds of Portal Fantasy. Heroes will also be rewarded for exploring and completing quests.
Meanwhile, the Architect path offers a more passive playstyle. Architects can use the Creator’s Compass to design and build new worlds—this is where the community-run aspect of Portal Fantasy comes in.
The worlds created by Architects can then be explored by Heroes; the more heroes that interact with the worlds, the better rewarded the Architects are.
It was very important to the team behind Portal Fantasy that community interactions and user-generated content offered a lasting supply of exciting content for the game. Moreover, they worked hard to ensure that Portal Fantasy had a strong foundation of fun gameplay, rewarding progression, and exciting lore behind it.
It’s not easy to create an economy that is both equally rewarding and challenging. It’s harder to make sure your game’s replayability doesn’t take a hit from this, either. The Portal Fantasy team has poured over every aspect of the game’s economy with a fine-toothed comb, running countless simulations to make sure its economy thrives as the game ages.
What’s more, the game is designed in a way that the more players interact with the game; completing quests, creating worlds, and training Porbles—the higher their rewards will be.
Stats and player progression go hand in hand. For the first 100 Porbles the game will have upon release, players can rest assured that each Porble will have balanced stats that push them towards finding the next best one. This incentivizes players to become more and more invested in Portal Fantasy while being rewarded for their efforts.
Accessibility and player trust is a core part of the Portal Fantasy team’s philosophy. When it comes to monetization, Portal Fantasy will be free-to-play from top to bottom. Players will never be asked to cash in if they wish to progress to a new level or quest. Connecting a wallet is completely optional, and players can do so later on if they choose.
As a blockchain game, Portal Fantasy utilizes fair and pro-consumer practices when it comes to rewards and monetization. Instead of relying on an influx of new players to support the existing playber base (as most blockchain titles do), the players will solely be rewarded for their individual efforts within the game.
The team behind Portal Fantasy aims to break down the stigma around blockchain gaming by showing players that well-made RPGs that are genuinely exciting to play can coexist with a play-to-earn structure.
