One of the fastest growing sectors in the blockchain space is GameFi, the unique fusion of gaming and decentralized financialization. These play-to-earn (P2E) games offer users the ability to earn incredible real-world payouts and rewards while enjoying a hobby they already love.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest obstacles to the widespread adoption of GameFi is the high cost to get started. Most P2E games require several hundred dollars worth of NFT-based in-game assets to begin playing. That’s simply beyond the reach of many prospective players.

Avarik Saga’s Mission to Mainstream GameFi

Avarik Saga, an upcoming P2E JRPG, isn’t satisfied with that state of affairs though. The Indonesian team of developers creating the game have made their commitment to mainstreaming P2E games clear. It’s their goal to bring “the modern game experience into the NFT space as the very first NFT RPG game in Indonesia.” And they believe that creating a full-featured JRPG with a robust story and engaging combat is the perfect way to do that.

This commitment to making their game as accessible as possible is what motivated them to partner with Play It Forward DAO, an innovative company developing an end-to-end, cross-game ecosystem that will connect players, guilds, and in-game data.

Avarik Saga and Play It Forward are excited to announce this partnership and the GameFi opportunities it will make possible.

What is Avarik Saga?

While the GameFi market has seen hundreds of projects launched in the past several months, very few have fallen in the JRPG genre. And yet, JRPGs have been hugely successful around the world. Avarik Saga will fill this gap, offering JRPG lovers a first-of-its-kind opportunity to earn rewards by completing a variety of tasks, including PvE quests, PvP campaigns, dungeon raids, new hero recruiting, resource trading, land utilization, token staking, and more.

Avarik Saga will feature two unique currencies, including a utilization coin called $VORTEM that will be used to recruit new Avariks, upgrade skills, and purchase items, and a governance token, $AVRK. This governance token will give holders voting rights in the DAO and cover transaction fees on the Avarik Saga marketplace.

In September 2021, Avarik Saga released its first playable NFT character collection of 8,888 genesis NFTs, which were sold out in less than an hour. Currently, this genesis collection is available for trading in a secondary NFT marketplace called OpenSea. Holders and future players can wait for the official launch of the game in Q3 2022.

How Play It Forward DAO & Avarik Saga Will Work Together

Play It Forward DAO will support Avarik Saga in its quest to become more readily accessible to traditional JRPG gamers. Since Play It Forward allows users to join guilds where they can share in-game assets, the barriers to entry will be significantly lowered for interested players. They’ll no longer need to make such a large upfront investment since they’ll be able to rent NFTs directly from other players who aren’t currently using them.

In addition, Play It Forward’s account management system will give Avarik Saga players the ability to quickly analyze their performance and earnings in a central location. This benefit is multiplied for any players who are invested in multiple P2E experiences since the system works across multiple platforms and games.

Finally, Play It Forward will make it easier than ever for players who borrow assets to automatically share their profits with lenders. This streamlined process will ensure maximum transparency, security, and fairness. In addition, it will limit the possibility of disagreements and frustrations between borrowers and lenders.

All in all, the partnership between Play It Forward and Avarik Saga will go a long way toward helping both companies fulfill their mission of making P2E games more accessible and enjoyable.
