1 year of Dark Country project: Unveiling huge 2020–21 updates
Hey, Dark Country adepts! It’s been an unusual year to all of us. At the same time, it’s been a year of growth for Dark Country project.
1 year ago we purchased a domain for darkcountry.io so literally that was a start. In fact DC Team started to conceptualize the game a bit earlier, but actual coding and artwork started about that time we got a domain.
January — February, we got an initial boost and started with a sale of our Exodus packs, as well as a small demo of what Dark Country is about.
In April and May we moved into a remote work environment like the rest of the world, but it even pushed us to communicate better. About that time we introduced Standard packs (100 new cards) that will form a full deck to play a game.
In September 2020 was no doubt a big month for all of us. Our community grew almost 2x during 2 weeks. We introduced DC Heroes as a new asset class as well as made successful sales on WAX blockchain.
October 2020, since the launch of DC Game (September 15th) we managed to release 8 minor and major updates of Dark Country game, such fast pace is approaching us to Alpha 2.0. We got over 2000 matches played. In October, we launched Heroes Fight Club, as a separate web based game — https://nest.dapplica.io/heroesfightclub.
But this is just beginning, we are happy to share with you our event plan and updated roadmap
Finish of Heroes Fight Club Tournament #1
Heroes Fight Club launched only weeks ago, but already has a fan base. October 30th, we launched the first tournament with a great prize pool, where the main prize is 3000 WAX.
