Zombies are everywhere. They pop up in casual mobile games, AAA console games, and everything in between.
And now, thanks to an innovative new title called YoHunt, zombies are sliding into the worlds of augmented reality and the blockchain.
Currently in development, YoHunt sees you hunting zombies with bows and arrows and catching the ones you defeat.
There are tons of different zombies to collect, and here’s the great thing: every zombie you add to your inventory is an NFT. That means it’s up to you to trade for YoKen – the game’s native cryptocurrency token – on the in-game marketplace.
You can think of YoHunt as a kind of Pokemon GO! Zombie themed, but with a few crucial differences.
Firstly, it allows you to earn cryptocurrency, with real monetary value.
On the other hand, the range of zombies is limited by design so that each one retains its value and, just as importantly, its novelty. Catching a rare zombie is a heart-pounding challenge and a real thrill.
And a potential boost to your personal finances.
Catch the Queen
At the top of the rarity tree is a series of zombie ministers, and above that is queen E. There’s only one queen E in season 1, so if you manage to get your hands on this ultra-rare zombie, you’re not only level with YoKen, but endowed with almighty bragging too. In Season 2, there’s a brand new unique enemy for you to catch
Unfortunately, YoHunt isn’t really out yet, and it won’t be out until later in 2023.
That’s because the developer is working hard to get the gameplay right, create a massive zombie population, and iron out the kinks that can otherwise spoil a tech-ambitious game like this (remember the early days of Pokemon GO!?).
In addition, YoKen needs time to establish itself within the cryptocurrency community. And that process has only just begun.
YoKen’s presale began on October 31, just in time for Halloween. It runs until November 14.
This is your chance to get involved early.
