Game Genres
April 2022 | Whitepaper v1.0 | Developed by Galactic Games

Shooter, Combat, Racing and Arcade Party Games

Our development roadmap has been curated to target the most engaging genres demanded by gamers but with a focus on competitive PvP gameplay to offer our community a unique PvP-to-Earn franchise hosted in the Galactic metaverse.
We have narrowed our gaming hub to offer genres optimised for fast-paced duels and team matches to host competitive play-to-earn reward pools and PvP wagering.
Although we acknowledge the popularity of MMORPGs, we have decided not to include this genre on our initial development roadmap as we focus our development efforts on launching a ‘match-based’ PvP-to-Earn gaming hub.
