Video games have been a family thing since the beginning. Maxence, Manon, and Rémi got the same Super Nintendo NES game system when they were kids. While some people grow out of video games, our interest never faded. Eric started programming when he was a teenager, and passed his passion for digital creation on to his children.
Maxence has always been developing video games, while improving and developing his skills as a concept artist. The original idea of Beyond the Void comes from him; the game’s background, features, and gameplay. We came together as individuals around that concept, and have formed a team. Today, Beyond the Void is a team of four members, equally necessary to the success of the project.
Maxence takes care of the game’s code. Rémi’s input as the game designer is essential; he invents the game’s dynamics and gameplay, such as how many motherships with which skills, which attacks with how many damage percentages for which units.
Eric introduced blockchain technology to us. His passion for cutting edge technologies allowed us to see the possibilities of the blockchain sector. We took it upon ourselves to market a product that would be successful in this niche, but also to bring our game and the blockchain to the mainstream.
Remi followed through on Eric’s suggestion and developed our crowdfunding smart contracts, the Nexium bonus distribution for backer ranks, and is well on his way to becoming an Ethereum smart contract expert.
But making a great product isn’t enough. You also have to talk about it around you, develop partnerships, update people on our progress, go to events, and generally get the project out there. That’s Manon’s job. She is taking care of all of the project communication. She is active on all of the forum threads, social media, ads, articles, and scheduled events.
This way, Maxence, Rémi and Eric can focus on the game’s development.
Command your Mothership through an epic space war as you conquer planets and fight against your opponent’s fleet ! Choose wisely your skills and event cards during the game draft to fit your own gameplay and strategies.
Build harvesters and manage your resources in real time to achieve one goal: defeat the enemy.
Beyond the Void is a competitive game. Players will be able to compete amongst them through the community.
Tournaments are easily streamed, and interesting to watch. Each player has his own way to win, and with the different event cards and items, the game is never the same ! If the game is streamed on a large platform like Twitch or Youtube or many other famous streamers, it can draw a very large amount of players and viewers.
A cryptocurrency is a secured digital currency. It basically means that instead of having dollars or euros in your pocket you would have digital tokens which can be used for the same purposes: buy or sell things, back projects etc.
Ether is one of the main cryptocurrencies on the market, there is others as such as Bitcoin, Bitcrystal, Steem and many more.
Cryptocurrencies are decentralized. That means that its value is not controlled or influenced by any bank or government. You can’t just print cryptocurrencies, you have to « mine » them. Everybody can do it like every body can mine gold or silver. All the transactions are stored in « blocks » for all the world to see. When a block is closed, another begins, and that’s what’s called the Blockchain.
Nexiums are tokens created for Beyond the Void within the Ethereum Blockchain. You can’t mine those, you will have to buy them. Use your Nexiums to buy items in the shop !
