Dialectic, along with other leading investors, make deployment into Bright Star Studios and its first title Ember Sword
This release is under embargo until 26th May 2021 at 14:00 CEST
Bright Star Studios today announced that it has secured over $2 million in funding from multiple investors for its forthcoming free-to-play MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online roleplaying game) Ember Sword. This investment comes ahead of the game’s first Solarwood land sale of 12,000 plots on May 27th. Bright Star Studios intends to use the funding to further Ember Sword’s development, enabling it to deliver on its vision of a high-quality and immersive player-first gaming experience supported by an innovative play-to-earn economy powered by the blockchain.
Bright Star Studios was founded in 2018 by games-industry veterans and MMO fanatics, including Joris Huijbregts, Mark Laursen, Sage Durain and Loren Roosendaal. Their goal is to shun the usual pay-to-win mechanics and loot boxes common to free-to-play games and instead develop a player-driven economy that allows gamers to earn rewards through in-game activities, including the creation of unique, tradable NFT items. Ember Sword is Bright Star Studios flagship project and is being built as a love letter to MMORPG gamers. Players will find all the things they expect from an immersive MMORPG, including freeform sandbox gameplay, an immersive world and storyline, PvP and PvE combat, a functioning economy, complex character skill progression and an AI manager that directs gameplay to enhance player experience.
Driven by the blockchain, this play-to-earn vision has caught the attention of investment groups, such as Dialectic, Mechanism Capital, Delphi Digital, Animoca Brands, Yield Guild, DeFiance Capital, Coingecko Ventures, Weak Simp Capital and other acknowledged angel investors who have backed the Danish company with over $2 million. This capital represents an investment in Bright Star Studios and its continued production of Ember Sword’s groundbreaking digital economy, particularly land and tokens.
Ember Sword’s first-ever public land sale will make 12,000 of 40,000 plots from the in-game nation of Solarwood available for purchase. Solarwood is one of four nations in Ember Sword’s vast world of Thanabus. The game will be available via client and browser, meaning that players can enter the rich MMORPG world and economy in seconds, thereby ensuring a frictionless experience without compromising on visuals. Players can discover more about the land sale and the different plots available at https://embersword.com/ before it begins on May 27th at 18:00 CEST.
