Game On: Pixudi Scales with Tanssi's Appchain for Premier Gameplay & User Experience

The Tanssi appchain infrastructure protocol is joining forces with Pixudi, a team blending traditional race board games with blockchain technology. This collaboration launches with the Pixudi Arcade, a new multi-genre gaming platform, into Dancebox, Tanssi's testnet. Pixudi's launch of its own appchain will allow them to scale its player base without compromising user experience, ensuring adaptability to evolving needs. Pixudi brings a variety of engaging games and experiences to the Tanssi community.

"Tanssi's appchain deployment was impressively fast, allowing us to set up in just minutes and access the necessary infrastructure tools and services tailored to our project's needs. This efficiency enabled us to release our token and begin developing the tokenomics, even within the test network. Beyond technical support, the Tanssi team has also aided our market expansion, giving us opportunities to participate in their incentivized testnet campaign and reach new communities. As we look ahead, we plan to launch even more contracts. With our team's expertise and Tanssi's advanced technology, this will be a quick and seamless process,” says Alex Scoresby, CEO & Co-Founder of Pixudi.

Beyond the Board: The New Era of the Pixudi Multiverse

Pixudi is a classic race board game with a fresh twist, revamped with blockchain technology. Players race to collect treasures during special events and tackle obstacles and missions along the way. Pixudi utilizes advanced blockchain technology to ensure completely random dice rolls via smart contracts, while all in-game items are NFTs and every transaction, from purchases to game outcomes, is recorded on-chain.

The game merges ‘Free-to-Play’ and ‘Play-to-Earn models,’ letting players start without cost and earn rewards for good performance, with optional in-game purchases for advantages. Events change every few months, each bringing new boards, characters, and challenges, like the inaugural "Searching for the Dragon Stone" event. Players move across boards marked with reference points, encountering various events determined by dice rolls. This setup keeps the gameplay exciting and ensures fair play without pay-to-win dynamics.

Pixudi is experiencing rapid growth as its gaming platform attracts more users and expands its offerings. However, this growth brings challenges. With an increasing number of transactions and interactions, Pixudi's current infrastructure encounters performance and potential user experience challenges. Without an appchain, managing and scaling the platform becomes more complex. As Pixudi continues to grow, there's an urgent need for a robust infrastructure that can handle scalability while ensuring a seamless user experience.

Tanssi x Pixudi: Personalized Experience through Customized NFT Marketplace and Optimized Gaming Performance

Deploying its own appchain not only equips Pixudi to scale its infrastructure for a growing player base but also allows expansion into new gaming genres beyond traditional board games. This innovative setup connects all their games on a single network, allowing them to interact and enhance one another, thus elevating the fun and dynamics of gameplay. Additionally, the appchain introduces a customized NFT marketplace where players can trade and upgrade their game assets, adding a personalized and interactive element to the experience. The rollout of the Pixudi Chain is not just an expansion of Pixudi's game portfolio; it’s creating a richer, more connected gaming world within the Pixudi Multiverse.

Building on Pixudi's expertise in game development, this collaboration with Tanssi Network will attract more game publishers and establish a unified gaming ecosystem. To test the scalability of gameplay, Pixudi plans to launch multiple mini-games on the test Pixudi Chain within Tanssi. This approach ensures a robust and engaging gaming experience, strengthening the interconnected Pixudi Multiverse. However, to achieve these plans, Pixudi needs a solid infrastructure, which will be provided by Tanssi. Let's take a look at the benefits of having a dedicated Pixudi chain:

Enhanced Performance and Scalability

By developing Pixudi as a dedicated appchain, optimization of the blockchain’s architecture specifically for gaming and ensuring high performance and scalability will become possible. This allows handling the increased transaction volume and complex computations inherent in a rich, interactive gaming environment. It also ensures that users experience smooth and responsive gameplay, even during peak times.

Customization and Control

Having its own appchain gives complete control over the network's features, governance, and development roadmap. The blockchain’s parameters, consensus mechanisms, and economic models can be tailored to suit the unique requirements of Pixudi. This customization extends to implementing specific game mechanics, asset management, and transaction protocols that enhance the overall gaming experience.

Innovation and Experimentation

An independent appchain provides a sandbox for continuous innovation and experimentation. New features, updates and game mechanics can be rapidly developed, tested, and deployed without being constrained by the limitations or priorities of a shared blockchain. This agility enables the team to stay at the forefront of gaming technology and deliver cutting-edge experiences to their players.

Building a Robust Community

Having their own appchain on Tanssi fosters a sense of ownership and community among Pixudi’s players and stakeholders. It allows them to create a governance framework where the community can participate in decision-making processes, propose improvements, and vote on key issues. This inclusive approach strengthens community engagement and ensures that the platform evolves in a direction that aligns with the collective interests of its users.

Platform for Mini-Games

Beyond the main game, Pixudi’s appchain will serve as a launchpad for other mini-games, expanding their ecosystem and offering diverse gaming experiences. These mini-games will leverage the same blockchain infrastructure, providing seamless integration of assets, consistent user experiences, and additional engagement opportunities. By fostering a variety of games within the Pixudi network, they can attract a wider audience and create a more dynamic and vibrant gaming community.

What’s Coming Next?

The Pixudi Chain will serve as a comprehensive GameHub, designed to integrate both existing games and new projects. This architecture will allow NFT items from diverse projects to transfer and interact within a unified ecosystem, creating a vibrant gaming and cohesive landscape. The integration will enhance interactivity and engagement across different gaming platforms, significantly boosting the overall impact of the GameHub.
