Users like the video but ask for an adjustment
One aspect is raised by many and asked to be adjusted before release: “Looks great, but it’s so shaky I thought it was a VR game”. Another user jokes: “POV: It’s the first time you try a FPS [First-Person-Shooter] Game to gamble and your sensitivity is set way too high” (via YouTube).
Overall, though, the video is going down quite well with people. Several praised the insight into the game and wrote comments such as: “The more I see of this game, the cooler I think it is. Really impressive work here!” on twitter or “I find it [das Video] fantastic, even more so because it’s a pre-alpha trailer. Congratulations!” (via YouTube).
This is what awaits us in SHRAPNEL
SHRAPNEL is being promoted as the first first-person shooter to embed blockchain technology in-game. In addition to combat, the game provides tools that allow players to create their own creations.
In the game you have the opportunity to craft items, weapons, skins and maps (which represent NFTs) using various tools and then sell them to other players.
This is where the blockchain system comes into play. If a player dies in combat, they lose their equipment (i.e. NFTs). Thus, every confrontation represents a risk that must be carefully considered.
The game’s community itself can help create the NFTs that can be used in the game. Therefore, the number of available items keeps growing.
There will be operator classes in the game. The player can choose from 3 different ones:
