Bright Star Studios, the developer of blockchain-based MMORPG Ember Sword, has received over $2 million in funding on the eve of its big land sale. The funding comes from a multitude of investors who apparently believe in Ember Sword's promise of a "player-driven economy that allows gamers to earn rewards through in-game activities, including the creation of unique, tradable NFT items."

That land sale, offering 12,000 of 40,000 plots from the in-game nation of Solarwood, has just kicked off, at 9 a.m. Pacific, so if you want to get in on the action, you'll want to head to the Ember Sword site and get into the game. Owners of land will receive "percentage of the real-life revenue generated by the area around your plot."

And if you're not a landowner? Ember Sword still intends to offer "freeform sandbox gameplay, an immersive world and storyline, PvP and PvE combat, a functioning economy, complex character skill progression and an AI manager that directs gameplay to enhance player experience." Just make sure you're OK being a landless peasant ...
