Ripples Nigeria understood that Darklands is an open-world dark fantasy RPG that draws inspiration from traditional titles such as RuneScape, Diablo, Elden Ring, and The Witcher.

The company wrote: “The partnership will allow The Red Village team to focus on one core belief; this play-and-fun-first approach, creating a metaverse experience with true socializing ability, engaging gameplay, and an incredibly strong community and lore, will be the catalyst for integrating the rest of the world in blockchain games.

“The real catalyst for mass blockchain adoption will be bringing traditional gamers into the metaverse through high-quality, immersive ecosystems with strong lore, engaging gameplay, and a vibrant community.

“We have rarely seen a project that inspires mainstream gamers to get into blockchain gaming, and we believe the reason is the lack of great gaming experiences. We will provide an excellent gaming experience.”
