Paracosm and Post Scriptum – a new milestone in VR gaming using IOTA
Paracosm Post Scriptum is a virtual reality game (VR) and platform, presented at the 2018 DevGAMM in Minsk.
This game and its underlaying platform is going to change the world of VR.
The game will consist of multiple parts:
- The Paracosm MMO RPG (first release will be Post Scriptum)
- A collectible token game (CTG) / board game / card game for IOS, Android and desktop PC
- The “Paracosm Key“
- Caer Sidi Credits (CSC) – (in-game currency)
Using IOTA, the Tangle and the JINN processor Paracosm will enable things never seen before.
But Paracosm isn’t just only a game – it’s going to be a whole cross reality (XR)-platform (Paracosm Company).
Everybody with an internet connection and VR components will be able to participate.
You can create your own Paracosm universe and invite whoever you want to join.
The real and the virtual world will get merged to one fantastic universe!
First there will be a universe released called “Post Scriptum“.
This is a medieval/gothic themed universe.
Players will be able to explore this universe and find out what is possible in this game.
Post Scriptum, the first release of Paracosm, won’t be a VR game. This feature will follow at due time.
But it will be a great showcase what this game will be all about.
PC MMO RPG
The PC MMO RPG will be a multiplayer game. An open world will make this game an exciting playground.
Stunning 3d graphics will plunge you into the medieval world of Post Scriptum.
Experience exciting adventures with your chosen character in this open world video game map.
Caer Sidi Credits (CSC)
Caer Sidi Credits (CSC) is the in game currency that is used in all games. It’s comparable to in-game gold and other currencies from various games.
One CSC costs 1€ – this is to ensure that there will be no volatility, which would be the case if a cryptocurrency would be used for e.g.
The smallest amount is 0,0001 CSC.
You can buy Caer Sidi Credits using IOTA, Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) and use the credits for buying goods and items, like swords, tools etc.
Via the Caer Sidi platform you are able to trade your credits and items with other users.
The “Paracosm Key” will be a keyfeature of this game.
This will be your ID, which will store all your data, like player history and real and virtual assets on IOTAs Tangle.
Yes – you heard right!
The game will store your data on IOTA’s Tangle.
There will be two versions of the key:
The “basic” key, which is digital and the “tangible” key, which is a real piece of hardware that you can carry around with you in your pocket for e.g.
Paracosm collectible card game and collectible Board Token Game
There is more: A token board game that will connect the virtual with the real world.
Two to six players can play this epic cross reality game.
The collectible Post Scriptum Token Game will contain real tokens that also have built in RFID chips.
These tokens will be able to record all the characteristics, token evolution and history on the IOTA Tangle.
Also all the other gamedata from your mobile devices and PC will be stored in the Tangle.
This augmented reality (AR) token game (wargame) will combine real world gaming and modern tech like tablets and smartphones.
The game will be available for IOS and Android devices.
Bring your medieval characters, like the smith or the champion, to life on your screen and experience a gaming atmosphere never seen before.
IOTA Token for payments
The developers said that IOTA will be the “buy-in” payment method to get the in-game currency called Caer Sidi Credits (CSC).
CSC is not a cryptocurrency – it is chosen because the game will need a stable priced currency to ensure a good user experience.
At a later point, when volatility is no problem anymore, IOTA might become a in-game-currency for purchases and other things where a payment method is needed.
This all combined one can say that IOTA’s network will definetly benefit from this game.
You can register yourself for the Presale on the Paracosm.games website and will be noticed once the game is officially released and get further updates before that!
The game will be available for desktop PC and mobile (IOS and Android) devices.
Earn money by running an Ict node
Traditionally many games run on servers – Paracosm will outsource this to Ict node operators.
Setting up such a node is pretty simple and doesn’t require expensive hardware – a Raspberry Pi is enough.
Still there will be an incentive to run a node. Operators will get paid for partcipating in this network.
Merch is the best way to show your support and love for your favorite project.
As soon as there is merchandise (like t-shirts, hoodies etc.) for Post Scriptum or any other project from this platform available, you will find out on this site.
For 2019 Paracosm got a few things in Store.
They will be present at the Berlin White Night, a business coference for the game industry, in Berlin – Germany in February, showing Post Scriptum and the collectible board game.
The Paracosm Key pre-sale and the Paracosm ONE 1st auction will also be in February 2019.
The Collectible Token Game (mobile version) will be launched in March, followed by the Boardgame in May.
In Juli we will see the MMO RPG going to Alpha. Later in November we will see the first BETA.
3rd party developers are already building on top of the existing platform and there are more to come.
5 year roadmap
The following 5 years sound very promising and exciting.
2019 the final IOTA protocol should be launched, followed by an Orbuculum XR-engine in 2020.
2021 we might see a Cross-reality Helmet by Paracosm!
2022 and 2023 a XR-suite and a Paracosm Sphere will follow.
