Dogecoin-friendly videogame VoidSpace receives $1M funding

The Canadian Media Fund confirmed their intention to provide VoidSpace with one million dollars in funding,  “putting the total funding for the second phase of development at over $1.3 million,” said lead developer Nikolas Gauvreau.

VoidSpace intends to become a one of its kind massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) happening in the Void, “an area of space where the player’s character has been unwittingly catapulted via a network of wormholes,” with players “fighting for the few available resources to find their way into this desolate place.”

One of the specificities of the game is the possibility for players to perform Dogecoin transactions between each other. “This will allow players to have in-game businesses that actually make them real money,” explained the developers, giving many examples of virtual businesses that could be created inside the game: players can rent their infrastructures to other players, sell services as a defence contractor, ferry smaller ships inside of larger carriers for a fee, start a bank that secures in-game currencies, or even provide loans and credit with interest…

Additionally, players will be able to create and manage official player organizations, whose main goal will be “to attract new members because of the ‘strength in numbers’ concept that is prevalent throughout the game’s design.” “As player organizations stabilize and grow, we expect to see them becoming ‘big business’ because of the ties VoidSpace has with real-world economies via Dogecoin,” described the developers.

The game is only available as a working prototype for now.
