LOVELAND, Colorado – It’s a pipe dream that video game developer David Hernandez is about to realize.
“I never thought you could get paid to play video games,” he said.
His new game, Sword of the Magi, will allow you to do just that. It can be played on your mobile device or your desktop computer.
“Like any other game, you have to pass and play, earn experience points and rewards,” Hernandez continued. “It allows you to earn change.”
The game itself looks basic in design. Hernandez describes him as “a little ‘Legend of Zelda’ mixed with ‘Final Fantasy’.” However, cryptocurrency transfer software is a game-changer.
Hernandez plans to give players 1,000 chips for every hour played.
There are currently apps on the market that allow you to earn money. However, the Loveland video game designer says his game is different because there is no upfront fee to get started.
“Basically we make more money from the transactions that happen in the game,” he said.
Hernandez earns money when players decide to keep their money in the game, such as spending their earned cryptocurrency on their character, instead of cashing out.
The game is scheduled to launch on December 11.
“I already have over 200 people signed up,” Hernandez said.
Hernandez was able to finance the launch of his game through crowdfunding and digital art sales. He also hopes to benefit from a Swiss scholarship of up to $ 250,000.
