Taurion — True Blockchain Gaming — Decentralised Sandbox MMO — Human Mining

Our first post on our upcoming title.

We’ve been hard at work on our in-house MMO. And it’s going to blow your socks off. A True Blockchain Game.

This is what we see as real blockchain gaming: decentralised worlds.

A massive world to explore

Taurion is a game set 1000s of years in the future, after the great Exodus from Earth when the 12 Houses headed out to the far reaches of the galaxies to find a new home.

3 Houses settled on planets not far from each other in the same sector of the galaxy (not far in galaxy terms) -

House Reubo — personify intelligence and understanding
House Ephrati — represent the ministration of patience and assiduity
House Jodon — represent strength and power

Each house’s planets are low on natural resources for construction and general living…

Until, a strange signal was detected emanating from a solar system in the sector. All 3 houses sent scouts to the area. The source of the signal was found to be a hostile planet, not dis-similar to the ancient planet from the old texts known as Mars.

Landing parties from the 3 tribes began to examine the surface…

And there it was — a structure of exquisite beauty was discovered; it was not natural. Inside were ancient texts that even the Reubo’s technology could not translate. Except for one word, a word written in an old tongue, the name of the planet.


Although we are early in development, what we have now is already orders of magnitude more complex, more decentralised, and imo more interesting than any other blockchain games out there (not including Huntercoin). Think of Taurion as a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation like those that have been heavily discussed in the past, only this encompasses an entire game universe that runs totally autonomous and is unstoppable.

The basics of the Decentralised Autonomous World — Taurion.

How best to describe it?

As mentioned in previous posts — CIV / Eve / Elite / Dune 2 / Huntercoin / — except on a planet.

Taurion will also integrate Xaya ID (XID).

Xaya ID is a dapp that runs on XAYA and allows secure and trustless chat and communication in games based on XAYA, as well as for many other non-gaming use cases.

Where are we at now? (See our forums for updates as they become available.)

3rd March:

Base Map Completed

Character Creation

Vehicle Movement

Vehicles in videos are placeholders for now.

Combat / HP / Shield / Regen — All tracked in the game state of the game

We are happy to answer any questions thus far.
