In the third quarter of this year the Ukrainian studio wants to launch a first expansion pack for the card game. After that the studio wants to continue with something they call ‘Co-authorship functionality’, in which gamers can create their own game mechanics. While introducing a new game mode in the beginning of 2021.
The trading card game combines elements from classic western movies with the occult. The Chief tried to call upon the ancestral guard, but instead woke an ancient evil. Now there are four groups, with cowboys, criminals, Indians, and undead demons. Players pick one of these groups for their hero powers and build decks with the cards in their inventory.

Advantages of WAX
By the end of 2019 there has been some hype surrounding the WAX blockchain. WAX is based on the EOS blockchain, but is tailored for entertainment media purposes. Every user will get a wallet with some starting credit in it. As a result there’s no initial hassle with wallets, private keys and transactions. All they need is an e-mail and password or a login through popular social media.
They will automatically get a WAX Cloud Wallet that has sufficient tokens to play around a bit. Only when gamers invest more time in a blockchain game on WAX, they will come in touch with the underlying technology.
ITAM Games is already moving its entire portfolio to the WAX blockchain. Around the same time the popular western-inspired strategy game Prospectors announced they would publish on WAX as well.
