Finally, was the first thought I had, finally a turn-based strategy game in #play2earn and then I saw it: Dungeon Co-Op and fond memories of dungeon crawling with good friends came back to me. The article is the opinion of the author Ronni K. Gothard Christiansen - a member of the RADA community.
1. Project Introduction
Turn-based strategy games and Dungeon Co-Ops (Crawlers) were instrumental in the foundation of social gaming, before the internet and multiple devices, the closest thing to a social gaming experience was taking turns or playing with a few good friends.
Orbitau - Seven Deadly Sins, is a turn-based strategy fantasy game inspired by Norse Mythology and the Seven Deadly Sins where the main scene is set around the eternal war between Demons and Gods in a magical land of #play2earn.
Combining Turn-Based Strategy with Dungeon Co-Op, and in general, focusing on the social experience of the #play2earn gamer is a very interesting move by the team behind this new project, which is backed by RADA.
Role-playing narratives are perfect for MetaVerses as they truly find their full potential in a MetaVerse that breaches the traditional limitations of an experienced alternative reality. Orbitau - Seven Deadly Sins carries the entire project through a clear and defined narrative and the foundation for a future experience-rich MetaVerse is set.
Norse Mythology has a very rich culturally carried storyline based on Gods and Demigods and their eternal battle with the Giants but also walking on Earth amongst people. The Seven Deadly Sins are classical sins from Christianity and appear across most religions historically. As such, the narrative finds its home for most people in a known context of values and morals and a fight between good and evil, the perfect setting for an interesting new #gamefi project.
2. Market Review
Dungeon Co-Op or Dungeon Crawlers are amongst some of the most known gaming categories in the world, not least Diablo which is a franchise that forever made Dungeon Crawlers one of the most popular categories within gaming over the past two decades.
There was no internet and people could not afford two devices, that is how reality was when the first Turn-Based Strategy Games started to become popular. Personally, Heroes of Might & Might will forever be an eternal classic for me - and for many others, but Diablo was the first gaming experience for many in a real-time co-op setting, and what really is essential for both gaming categories is the social aspect.
Taking turns sitting in the “hot chair” (the one in front of the computer) was an extremely ineffective way of playing complex strategy games in terms of how much time would be spent. But the social aspect of playing with your friends or family and having the gaming experience together means that a title like Diablo still exists 20 years later and is still releasing new titles.
Gamefi & MetaVerse
In the last quarter of 2021, we have seen many new #gamefi projects coming out with perhaps some of the best narrative and engaging storylines seen in the industry. We have backed a lot of them in RADA and Orbitau - Seven Deadly Sins follows the same strategy as it has a great deal of global mass-market appeal.
Turn-Based Strategy Games and Dungeon Crawlers are kings in traditional gaming, but so far there are very few projects launched in either category. So Orbitau - Seven Deadly Sins will be one of the first movers in #gamefi and #metaverse combining two of the traditional super categories into a more immersive #metaxperience.

As a 30 year veteran in the two gaming categories of Turn-Based Strategy and Dungeon Co-Op and as an avid #gamefi fan, I might as well start by admitting that I am going to be playing Orbitau - Seven Deadly Sins. Just in terms of the pure gaming experience and conceptual approach, I have to see what's going on for myself.
The fact that it also brings enough new gaming elements and aspects to the #gamefi table as well as the TAUREUM ecosystem, it goes beyond a singular title and looks to become a continuous gaming experience over time where you never get tired of the game, because you can just move to the next one to have a totally new experience.
The next wave of #gamefi and #metaverse projects launching here in December 2021 and into Q2 2022 (amongst others on the RADA LaunchVerse) takes another milestone of a step forward for an industry that is already taking home record after record in terms of the number of players globally. With numbers of 5-7-10 million players within weeks of launching, the young but explosively growing #gamefi and #metaverse industry has established that there is far more demand than supply.
Orbitau - Seven Deadly Sins opens up two of the super categories within traditional gaming as pioneers into these sub-genres of gaming, and it is by far some of the most interesting categories to follow the impact on #gamefi on. Due to the very social nature of these types of games, you enjoy the gaming experience when you play together and it's fun - and then you get paid.
