Undiscovered Story, a “Learn & Earn” trivia game, highlights contributions of girls and women throughout history while letting players earn crypto tokens and donate to women’s initiatives.
Using feedback from beta testers, WIRD will further refine Undiscovered Story’s UI before the game’s full release in May.
Los Angeles – Wild Idea Research and Development (WIRD), a global blockchain software development start-up, today released the beta version of its crypto-powered cross platform trivia game Undiscovered Story for mobile (iOS and Android) and web.
In the rapidly shifting era of immersive digital games, disruptive technologies, and next-gen innovations, the Undiscovered Story was developed to gamify the world of crypto and blockchains. Built as a Progressive Web Application (PWA) that utilizes React.JS and Node.JS, the game also highlights the significant, yet too often ignored contributions of girls and women in STEM related fields.
While playing Undiscovered Story, users are asked questions focused on the achievements and contributions of girls and women from around the world to different fields. Each correct answer earns the player one Undiscovered Story Game Token (UDGT), the game’s native crypto token. An incorrect answer allows them to donate the token they would have won––instead of “burning” it like other crypto projects––to a vetted, in-game list of female-led charities, social initiatives or businesses.
The beta release brings WIRD (pronounced weird) officially out of stealth mode. Interested parties can sign-up and play the beta now as well as participate in the company’s token pre-sale (until April 30) which allows game tokens to be purchased at $0.10 USD per UDGT. After the pre-sale period, gameplay tokens will be sold for $0.15 USD per UDGT. While the game itself is free to play, proceeds from the token pre-sale will go towards supporting Undiscovered Story as well as various women-led initiatives around the globe. The full version of the game is expected to be released in mid-May.
“WIRD was created to unlock the promise of decentralized technology by building best-in-class blockchain applications and fostering communities focused on social good” said company co-founders Gregory Kennedy and Noam Dromi. “Following last year’s frenzy in token investments and the subsequent downward trend as a result of a number of unsuccessful ICOs, WIRD’s planned product portfolio is focused on driving mass adoption of blockchain technology, making it more accessible for the layperson, and creating solutions that can benefit the public and communities in need. With the release of the Undiscovered Story game, we believe we have created something that people will not only enjoy playing, but will also get them excited about helping others.”
WIRD’s planned software product releases include a “social good” media platform, scheduled for release in Q4 of this year. The company’s team operates remotely, with members located throughout the United States and around the world.
