From Beta Testing to Going Live
After a year of beta testing and amassing a large community with over 350,000 gamers on Discord and over 250,000 on platform X (previously known as Twitter), Big Time is set to go live this coming October. Their unique approach to gaming promises a free-to-play model devoid of the controversial pay-to-win elements seen in some crypto-centric games.
Behind the Game
Big Time Studios boasts an impressive team, including the former CEO of Decentraland and veterans from AAA game development. The game emphasizes its “player-owned economy”, allowing users to craft, trade, and discover NFT wearables and collectibles in their travels through various time epochs. All of this is supported by the native Big Time cryptocurrency.
Setting a New Standard
Ari Meilich, Big Time’s founder and ex-CEO of Decentraland, highlights the strength of the game’s community and the prowess of the Big Time Studios team. He noted that the community has witnessed rapid growth and the game’s initial sales and trading metrics are promising. A significant achievement has been its dominance on Twitch, making it the most-streamed PC web3 game.
Unlike earlier crypto games that faced challenges, Big Time seems committed to avoiding pitfalls. Michael Migliero, the Chief Marketing Officer at Big Time Studios, emphasized that the game’s native $BIGTIME tokens are earned based on skill and strategy, paving the way for a merit-based in-game economy.
