The Heart of Gala Games Community is in Discord

The Heart of Gala Games Community is in Discord

At Gala Games, our community-powered entertainment ecosystem thrives on the vibrant interactions within our robust Discord community. Here’s why our Discord is the core gathering place for our ecosystem

What is Discord?

For those who might be unfamiliar, Discord is a free voice, video and text communication platform designed for creating communities. Initially popularized by gamers, Discord has expanded to accommodate a wide range of interest groups and communities. Here’s a quick rundown of its key features:

Channels and Servers: Discord operates on servers, which are essentially individual communities. Each server can host multiple channels, where different topics and activities can be discussed. Channels can be text-based for written conversations or voice-based for live audio chats.

Text Channels: These are akin to forum threads where users can post messages, share links, and engage in discussions on specific topics. Each text channel can be dedicated to a particular subject, making it easy to find and participate in conversations that interest you.

Voice Channels: Voice channels allow for live audio conversations. These are perfect for real-time discussions, whether for gaming, casual chats or team meetings. Users can drop in and out of voice channels as they please.

Community Engagement: Discord’s user-friendly interface makes it easy to join and navigate multiple servers, allowing users to engage with various communities. Features such as direct messaging, group chats and integrated media sharing enhance the social experience.

Bots and Integrations: Discord supports bots—automated programs that can perform a variety of tasks, from moderating discussions to playing music. Additionally, Discord integrates seamlessly with other platforms and tools, making it a versatile hub for community interaction.

Accessibility: Discord is accessible via desktop and mobile apps, as well as through web browsers, ensuring you can stay connected with your communities wherever you are.

Discord accounts are free, with upgradeable features for subscription members. By joining our Gala Games Discord server, you’ll have access to all the above features and more, tailored to enhance your experience within our ecosystem. Whether you’re here for the latest updates, to share your ideas, or to connect with like-minded individuals, Discord provides the perfect platform for fostering a vibrant and engaged community.

Wen! WEN!? Now, Apparently

Wen! WEN!? Now, Apparently

It’s only been a short time since the Project Token Creation Tool was released on GalaSwap, but some big things have been happening.

Since opening up the floodgates to new tokens on GalaSwap, 70 new tokens have been created on GalaChain. Over 420,000 total $GALA has been burnt in the token creation process, and we’ve seen some people really dive into new tokens on GalaSwap!

We just wanted to pop in today to highlight that one new token on GalaChain hit over $1m in market cap after only a few weeks! $WEN!

This was snipped on July 3rd, around 2pm PT on galacoins.xyz!

“$WEN is initially a memecoin based on a famous joke about delays. Within a few days, I started leveraging my knowledge of Galachain’s tools to decentralize the holdings and gamify the trading. Now it aims at becoming a token with utility, the first of which is to access to features on galacoins.xyz”

Lukabylie, $WEN

WEN?

$WEN is a token created by a community member you may know as Lukabylie on Discord. They also happen to be the owner of galacoins.xyz!

https://medium.com/@gala.memecoin/wen-memecoin-a21c20130606

WEN was first created at the beginning of June, but it’s taken off within the community with amazing speed! As of the time of writing this article, $WEN is showing a $600k market cap on galacoins!

More Than a Memecoin

We here at Gala are absolutely thrilled to see the community embrace a grassroots token like this. What’s even greater to see is that it’s not just the meme that’s making WEN desirable… just a few weeks in and the team is already providing actual utility for holding WEN!

https://medium.com/@gala.memecoin/expanding-galacoins-embracing-community-tokens-and-new-listing-requirements-aa730b6405a1

Add in the robust transparency that they have diligently performed with distributions and allocations, and it’s pretty clear why the community has placed so much trust in $WEN!

We are thrilled with the community’s interest in the token and in galacoins.xyz. What I’m personally surprised about is the magnitude of the interest and support our project received. With that in mind, we intend to expand on galacoins.xyz and create new projects if possible.

Lukabylie, $WEN

An Expanded GalaChain

We could not be happier to see WEN gaining steam in the ecosystem. GalaChain is a place for creativity and ingenuity, and we want people to build their projects here and leverage the power of this chain to achieve success.

Congratulations to the $WEN team on early success! Thanks for being a part of GalaChain!

Welcome to July! It may be hot outside but we’re pleased to announce the coolest new item in the Gala Games store… VOX Land! 

As we prepare for Project Cerberus, VOX’s upcoming game, community members have been FOMO’ing hard about VOX land, which will be one of the best ways to get into VOX rewards! So the team got together and came up with a straight bonkers way for anyone to get their hands on a Rare plot this July!

You can feel the excitement across every pixel of GalaChain as Project Cerberus starts to take shape. Everyone – human and VOX alike – are ready to start this party!

Before we dive into more about Project Cerberus in the upcoming weeks, we want to highlight more of the amazing real, actual human beings who put up with our constant onslaught of cubes day in and day out to bring you more voxelated glory!

This week, we’ve got a real treat from one of our human VOX pros. Meet Jeff… definitely a human made of squishy stuff just like you!

Tell the People Who You Are!

Hello world! I’m Jeff Brooks, AKA jeffgamedev, and I’m a game developer on VOX. I’ve been developing video games since I was just 11 years old, where I started writing text adventure games in C, and participated in the first ever online game-jams (we used to call them “compos”). 

I used ancient niche game libraries and engines that you may have never heard of, such as VERGE, Sphere, ika, Allegro, and Pygame and libGDX. I’ve been working as a professional game developer and full stack engineer for about 14 years now, and have been with the VOX team for just over a year.

I’m a husband, father, and horse owner that lives in the midwest of the United States. I’m a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls and Deus Ex games, and am currently on a mission to complete all of them.

What Guinness Book of World Records record would you like to break?

It’d be impressive to be the person that ported the most retro games to PC in history ever.

If you had to turn into a food, which one would you choose?

A giant chocolate chip cookie cake. Chocolate chip cookies are the best baked good.

If you were a wrestler what would be your entrance theme song?

Guile’s theme from Street Fighter. *FLEX*

Flex Indeed

What’s a TV show you hated that everyone else loved and why did you hate it?

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not funny.

What’s one super power you would NOT want?

Mind reading.

If you had to eat one meal everyday for the rest of your life what would it be?

Protein bars

The zombie apocalypse is coming, who are 3 people you want on your team?

My wife and 2 kids.

What’s the most embarrassing fashion trend you used to rock?

Sandals with socks. Comfort with convenience. Please don’t judge.

Dad fashion is the final evolution. Double comfort… and we don’t care what you think 😉

What was the worst haircut you ever had?

I had a mullet when I was 5. At the time, I lived in the deep south! That awful Achy Breaky Heart song was on the radio all day.

What’s your favorite thing about VOX?

I’ve been a fan of voxel art forever. Since I was a kid, I always imagined 3D video games would capture the essence of 2D games and put it in a 3D world. VOX is this!

What is your most used emoji?

:joy:

We believe that human and VOX cooperation is essential for the future of entertainment. We here at VOX believe in fair and equitable treatment of our humans. Boxy or rounded, we’re all working for a better future… squared.

Don’t forget to check out our last Behind the Cubes if you missed it!

We’ll see you before too long, as we keep highlighting the people who are fabricating the heads of the Cerberus as we speak. Stay VOXy out there!
