Undead Blocks – P2E on-chain RPG on the Ethereum network
About Wagyu Games
Wagyu Games is leading the charge on Kill-To-Earn Gaming. The Wagyu Games flagship product is set in the post-apocalyptic world with Undead Blocks.
Undead Blocks is the world's first AAA multiplayer kill-to-earn zombie survival game on The Ethereum Network. In this FPS, Survivors must confront the Undead as they come in wave after wave. Undead Blocks players can use Weapon Loadout NFTs to kill zombies and earn every single day. Players can participate in daily leaderboards and challenges to earn Gold ZBUX, which can be swapped for select cryptocurrencies or used to obtain rare and limited edition in-game items and weapons. Players will also earn Standard ZBUX which allow Survivors to level up their weaponry and build equity in the assets that they own as we rapidly enter a digital renaissance.
We had a massive task to develop many aspects of the game, from 3D models to storyline and music. Therefore, we selected a team with experience in the FPS genre.
Our goal was to create 3D characters for four Survivors and all game weapons, design a map, implement sound design and main soundtrack, and think of character arcs and a storyline.
Our challenge was to combine the best features of the iconic zombie shooters of the past and create an authentic gaming experience with a focus on gameplay with unobtrusive P2E features.

We clearly defined the areas of work, organized the necessary pipelines, and implemented all the tasks exactly on schedule.
For 9 months of work on Undead Blocks, we managed to complete all the tasks and prepare the game for its first open beta. Our team thought over the visual style of the game and implemented all the art in it. We created 4 key game characters and all types of weapons, developed game sounds and soundtrack, thought out the storyline and character arcs, and deployed one full-fledged game map. Our 2D and 3D artists have done a lot of marketing materials for the game's website: posters, videos, advertisements, presentations, etc. Fast, smooth, and well-coordinated work made it possible to make a high-quality MVP in record time and have time to implement a beta version of the game already available to players.
