FASTR — A Proposal

October 31, 2021
Spread the love

As part of the Gala Games strategy to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the blockchain space while also supporting grassroots indie game development studios, we are happy to present for your consideration the next game to join our ecosystem: FASTR!

Over the past weeks, many of you have had the opportunity to play FASTR, teaming up against one another and experiencing a truly early-alpha experience.

Project Name: FASTR

Game Developer: Melbourne Interactive Studios (MI Studios)

Genre: 5v5 Tactical First Person Shooter

Node Drop Mechanism: Up to 8.5% of all NFTs/Tokens Dropped to Node Operators based on the number of nodes online (More Nodes = Heavier Drops)

While no token is currently planned, in the event that a token is developed for FASTR, Node Operators would also receive a drop of this native token. In this event, there would also be a pool set aside for the future development of game specific nodes, though this will in no way impact the Founder’s Node reward pool in a negative way.

Release Date: Alpha early access release estimated to be early Q2–2022

Description: Welcome to FASTR, choose your operator and jump into objective based tactical action. FASTR is aiming to be the first competitive first person shooter available on the Gala Games Network. Each operator offers new ways to play and approach the battlefield with communication and teamwork as the key to a successful mission. Tap into your arsenal and handle a wide range of weapons and attachments to rain hellfire on your foes! FASTR features beautifully rendered maps with immersive and interactive elements, built from both painstakingly handcrafted assets and real world photogrammetry.

Conservatorship Funding

FASTR will become the first game put up for vote to be funded from the Gala Games Conservatorship funds. This process will be done by Founder’s Node owners using consensus voting that will determine if funds can be released to the developers.

Regardless of the outcome, the significance of this vote will help pave the way for grassroot indie game development studios to receive funding to complete their games all while being done in a decentralized manner.
