I have been doing a lot of programming and took the day to do something fun and to start getting the ball rolling. I figured I would make a funny coming soon ad. nothing really official, just something to show a bit of a behind the scenes on what we can expect with the “Cronenberg Gang:Game of Crones” Ravencoin NFT Game. We are so close! I am constantly working out any and all bugs and finalizing as much as I can without sacrificing any quality. LFG!

About the 8-bit game
The Cronenberg Gang: Game of Crones is based on my popular Ravencoin NFT Collection; The Cronenberg Gang. While creating the Cronenberg Gang NFT Collection I came to the idea of turning the artwork into a printed Tabletop Card game. I wanted it to be a table top battle card game and each design from the NFT collection would be a character, think of like “Pokemon” but based on my weird monster NFT art. Getting to the final “Cronenberg” artwork I felt I wanted to make the collection as impactful as possible. I turned to my programming knowledge and started conceptualizing on developing a Retro style 8 bit game BEFORE releasing my printed card game.
The “Game of Crones” 8 bit game will sort of play a lot like the old vintage ZELDA games. I am focusing a lot on the design and artistry of the color palettes, and integrating a story into the designs as much as possible. You will be playing as a character that explores around the 8 bit world trying to figure out what is causing these wicked monsters to appear. Along the way you will meet interesting and dynamic characters who represent members of the online Ravencoin Community I have had the honor of meeting.
The game will be released FREE and minted into the RVN Ravencoin blockchain for anyone to play and own. The game is community funded by the participants in the game. The game was funded by members of the Ravencoin community using Ravencoin donations to support development. Development began early summer 2022. I hope to be completed before the end of December 2022.
Get in the game(CLOSED)
There is still time to get in the game! I am still offering Interactive Characters on the map. Players will interact with these characters, and can upsell your project or just help to market yourself with a permanent spot in “Cronesville”. Please contact me / email me: firstname.lastname@example.org for more
Support My Art
Why create an 8 Bit game?
My dream as an artist and developer has always been to make a game based on my artwork. This and to also help spread the word of the Ravencoin Crypto Currency as a viable option for artists and developers alike to join in utilizing the many benefits and ease of use of this blockchain for their projects. I wanted to not only bring extra attention to my NFT Collection, but to also promote Ravencoin. Having an interactive game MINTED INTO the Ravencoin blockchain will really set it apart! I hope you check back soon and follow up on the development of my game. You never know, it might be available to play for FREE sooner than you think! =)
Let The Games Begin!
The Cronenberg Gang Game of Crones will not only be an NFT game it will also have a dedicated Leaderboard. The leaderboard is updated just by playing the Cronenberg gang game. View the leaderboards
I will try to do monthly giveaways based on activity and top leaderboard position holders. You can win NFTs, Merchandise, Stickers, & more!
When will the Printed game be released?
The Printed game will be released after the 8 bit game is released. The final Cronenberg artwork hinges on the final release of the 8 bit Video game, so I am eagerly working on completing development of the game whilst ensuring I am not rushing any aspect of the game.
Thank you for your interest in my game development and I hope you can support me and my art by donating Ravencoin to my RVN wallet. Thanks!
1/22/2023: Overhauling the NPC & Quest giver interact windows. Cleaning up Quest item checks and more. Finalizing the “Easter Egg” Nfts in game and #KAWMINUTY Member characters in game.
1/20/2023: I haven’t made an update for a while but a LOT of work has been going into the game. I am overhauling some of the code to optimize and add in special game mechanics. Just today I added in an inventory space check to see if players can take on a quest and also a return item check. I have been cleaning up extra code. I am also programming in “Surprise” NFTs and conceptualization the end game. This will be EPIC!
12/26/22: All Cronenberg nodes are created. They should all move smoothly. Reduced the amount of code running the Cronenberg’s. Need to revisit the BOSS Cronenberg’s and give attention to reducing code and nodes being used. Still need to finish all the animations for Cronenberg’s. I fixed intro animations and added attack damage animations. Going to try and reduce the Player code and compress what I can image wise. I feel the game is roughly 90% there. Still need to test many aspects and finish some quest programming. So Close! Added an alert system for when you are close to a monster to alert you of being too close!
All ongoing updates will be documented in the Cronenberg Gang “Announcements” channel on discord located here.
12/14/22: I began giving demos to “Golden Ticket” Holders. Golden tickets were sold on nftrvn.net for 500 RVN Ravencoin. I overhauled the coding for the Cronenberg Spawn systems for improved performance. Improved Performance on other areas where it was needed, Graphics handling and Processing improvements. Made Map elements load faster by implement visibility switches for improved performance. This past 2 weeks were about profiling ways to make the Framerate as fast and as constant as possible. So far so good! I Started Testing Online & Desktop Play. I still need to complete animations for several Cronenberg’s. I would say we are at about 70% – 75% towards completing the game.
10/24/22 – 12/14/22 Creating remaining Cronenberg Sprite Sheets. Prepared to paint as 8 bit and then animate. This is an integral part of the progress that is keeping the game from getting closer to completion. Once all the sprite sheets are animated and the nodes are programmed the game will be around 80% complete.
1/10/23: Finalized leaderboard functionality programming with game. More coding will be done to ensure security and to make it as awesome as possible. Awaiting Final level to be designed and programmed.
10/19/22: Animated Cronenberg #7 added a spawn area for the water areas.
10/17/22 – 10/18/22: Turned Cronenberg #5, #6 & #7 into 8 bit and added to game. Both still need animations. worked on map collisions and brainstormed more quests ideas for NPC.
10/15/22: Added Dialogues to NPC. Cleaned up artwork. Worked on and tested interactions with NPC. Finalized design ideas for map sections. Testing! Brainstorming Quest ideas. Added an in-game currency (unlinked from any real blockchain currency) for use in in-game quests.
10/14/22: Added Cronenberg NFT #4 into 8bit. Still have to animate its arms. I also tweaked some of the code to make the “Cronenbergs” “wander” better.
