Despite the many years that have passed since the release of the so-called “Retro Games” we now call today, countless gamers have been flocking to relive the thrill that these games used to give. Many modern indie video games have been hard at work to replicate the style and feel of these retro games to great success, but there hasn’t been an NFT game that has seemed to scratch that itch. Fortunately, the Meta Knights NFT project is here to breathe new life into the genre.
The rise of Non-Fungible Tokens has given birth to several groundbreaking projects in the market, and Meta Knights NFT boldly stands at the top. While NFTs can come in many forms, such as digital art, music and even social media posts, most NFT projects have opted to settle into the visual form through digital art pieces. Although they have been around for more than a decade, NFTs have only boomed this year, and with this boom comes various innovative projects coming out of the woodwork.
The rise of Non-Fungible Tokens has given birth to several groundbreaking projects in the market, and Meta Knights NFT boldly stands at the top.
Meta Knights NFT pays homage to the classic video game style with 8-bit graphics. The project is a utility token generation for holders that can be used within the Meta Knights Ecosystem. It features a collection of 9,999-pixel art knights that impart its holders with a sense of nostalgia. "It's an 8-bit Game of Thrones with six different factions, all fighting for dominance in the Meta Kingdom we've made," said the Meta Knights developers.
The Meta Kingdom is composed of six major factions, and each Meta Knight is a member of their respective faction. Each faction has an army of Meta Knights who are tasked with combating their respective Overlords to gain control of the Meta Kingdom. It is up to the holder's hero to protect the realm and defeat their Overlord. While holders have an exciting task at hand, they will also be rewarded with special perks and giveaways, most of which will be announced on the project’s Discord server.
Meta Knights is a project that prides itself in being honorable and transparent with the community, sticking to the knight’s code in service of the theme of the entire NFT project. As a result, the project is bound to attract the attention of crypto enthusiasts, NFT collectors, and even retro gamers who have no experience with blockchain technologies.
"I'd imagine any fantasy fans would also gravitate towards the project since we're heavily inspired by “Dungeons and Dragons” and Medieval Fantasy," shared the Meta Knights team. "Our lore and world are integral to our project, with the community helping build it and craft their own stories."
Currently, the lineup of tokens all feature knights, but the team is hard at work to expand the roster and integrate a Utility Token for all the characters within the Meta Kingdom ecosystem and a subset of virtual property NFTs called Meta Manors. The team hopes to expand the scope and the lore of the project, hoping to transform it into a game with the community’s beloved support.
