Today we got some info from a VC-backed VR & AR startup called Reality Reflection about a brand new game they’ve got coming out called Mossland. The game will be a virtual real estate title where players can “identify nearby real properties, acquire and trade them in the game. Virtual properties in the game can be tradable and liquified through cryptocurrency exchange, so users will put time and effort to increase the value of their properties.” While it sounds a little intriguing, we have to admit, it sounds like a VR version of Monopoly on paper. We’ve included some of the game’s highlights below, but until we see some footage, they’ve got a lot of work to do to make it sound a little more fun.
Augmented Reality: Virtual property value is proportionate to the number of check-ins in the properties and the owners will install ‘Accessory’, AR objects in attachment to the virtual properties. Users can attract buyers with this item.
Tradable Property, Accessory: Properties and Accessories of the Mossland can be traded between users through in-game auction system. Such transactions between the users can be done by using ‘Moss’, which is an in-game currency matched with ‘Moss Coin’, an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency secured by blockchain technology.
Location-based P2P Advertisement: Mossland creates a new advertising platform based on the convergence of real location-based games with AR technology. All Mossland users can create and run advertisement campaign through a simple interface after setting an ad budget.
