I’m sorry to report this this morning Bless is back and at it again.
Oh, that sounds cruel if you don’t know the story, so let me recap: bless online launched here on PC in 2018 and it was a mess that went down in 2019, which was followed a few months later by a console spinoff (which was killed off in 2022) and a PC version of the console version in 2021 that hit the P2E -Blockchain then reversed course (but still lives under Valofe now). Meanwhile, Neowiz licensed a mobile version (which no longer appears to be live in the west) and then a cross-platform reboot that was laced with more blockchain nonsense.
It’s the very last version – Tigon’s Bless Global – which we’re talking about here, as it actually comes to life on Steam this week (it’s also on mobile). Readers will recall that Steam actually bans these NFT-like games from tarnishing Valve’s platform, so you may be wondering how this one gets away with it. Tigon answers this question in its FAQ: “How do I use the NFTs/BLEC I minted in the PC version?” Currently you cannot use them while playing on PC. But you can do this in the mobile version as game progress is synced across devices from the same account.” Yes, the tokens are called BLEC. BLECs. BLEX? This is all bad.
“The game is based on an open economy without the traditional rules regulating player transactions. All types of tokens circulating in this game are not tied to the characters, so players can trade among themselves to get the items/tokens they need. In this game everyone has the potential to become a business tycoon!”
The official website of this version claims 2.2 million signups to date which seems unlikely but in any case none of them are reading this post because if you are reading our posts you already know better than to pour more money down this particular drain .
