  • Fancy Birds: Sky Wars is a blockchain-based game released on November 15, 2022.
  • As a Player-vs-Player (PvP) game, players need to battle one another and prove who is the best in air-to-air combat.

Fancy Birds: Sky Wars, developed by Fancy Studios, has entered the GameFi space.

Sky Wars is a Play-to-Earn (P2E) game that allows players to fly, breed, and compete against one another to reach the top of the leaderboards.

Sky Wars Features

Fancy Birds is the first game developed by Fancy Studios and consists of 8,888 randomly generated birds, all of which feature different attributes.

Fancy Birds: Sky Wars is the second game, developed to enable players to dodge bullets and shoot other players down in a multiplayer, dogfight-style game.

In the game, players can race one another and claim a spot in what the game calls “Treehouse Trophy,” which is the game’s leaderboard, and each player can fight and race to earn their spot within the “Nest.” 

Anyone can play Fancy Birds for free. However, those who buy a non-fungible token (NFT) in the form of a bird, which can be a genesis bird or a baby bird, can complete quests, compete on the leaderboards, participate in tournaments, and so on.

Additionally, NFT owners can earn the game’s native in-game cryptocurrency FNC. 

One distinguishing feature of this game, which is rarely seen in competing GameFi projects, is renting Birds. The game features a “Rent” section, where players can rent birds to play and race with for 30 days. 

Remember, anyone can enter the game without owning a bird or connecting a cryptocurrency wallet.

The game is played with the W, A, S, D, or arrow keys on a keyboard, and the player shoots by pressing the spacebar.

There is also a dedicated marketplace where players can currently buy Genesis Birds. These birds are sold in the form of USD Coin (USDC). The game also offers Polygon (MATIC) staking.

On the Flipside

  • Fancy Birds: Sky Wars is a new game, and the development team still needs to prove itself with consistent updates so it can maintain a high player base and have player incentives in its P2E model.

Why You Should Care

Fancy Birds: Sky Wars is an excellent addition to the broader Fancy Studios ecosystem, where the two games can now co-exist and share specific features, such as the NFT birds.

The fact that the game also lets players engage with it through the Free-to-Play (F2P) model is also exceptional, as some might be skeptical about connecting their wallet to the game, or buying an NFT, before trying it.

This release indicates a healthy GameFi space filled with competition, and we will likely see many more titles follow the F2P, P2E pattern.
