The developers behind the game are renowned for their contributions to building Web3 infrastructures. Playground Labs will be developing the play-to-earn protocol for Project Drone Galaxy and focusing on generating cash flows through player-driven gameplay economies. 

Playground Labs CEO Sam Peurifoy shared in a press release,

"Project Drone Galaxy's high-intensity esports-focused gameplay sets a new standard for web3 gaming and demonstrates what it means to responsibly integrate blockchain technologies in a way that puts users in the driver's seat."

The game will enable users to build and craft their drones and compete for digital collectibles and other rewards. Other mechanics involve players participating in fly-to-win games as animal avatars and competing against other pilots in a high-octane racing arena with POIs, barriers, and more. 

Project Drone Galaxy will launch in tandem with the 2022-23 DRL Algorand World Championship Season. The competition will showcase some of the world’s best drone pilots racing the fastest drones through challenging courses in real life, esports, and the metaverse.
