Whilst the information that WAX was working on several games has been well-known for some time, few would’ve expected Music Mogul to come so soon after the launch of Blockchain Brawlers.
The premise of player-versus-player gameplay – where strategy and decision-making really matter – is an enticing one for sure, and public reaction within WAX’s Discord server has been an eclectic mix of hype and positivity.
On the podcast, I’ve been talking about the price-of-entry into new NFT projects, and $75 for an initial pack drop does seem quite steep. With the downturn in crypto affecting the NFT market, time will tell if the demand will result in a 5,000 pack sell-out.
WAX Studios have made a point of describing Music Mogul as “play-and-own” – focusing on ownership rather than earning potential. Is that a reaction to recent falls in community sentiment towards the phrase “play-to-earn”, or the genuine development philosophy of the game?
Once the game is live, we’ll have our answer.
