It would completely fill a niche if a major game in development used Bitcoins for their in-game currency. They already have exchanges set up for in game currencies. They might as well just use BTC and allow players to use it.

Also, I used to play these strategy games on my phone that pretty much had the same theme. You work your vampire/mob boss/zombie/etc and he gets experience which he then uses to buy at token/diamond/gem/etc to get better stuff in the game. You could, of course, purchase more tokens/etc to advance quicker. Which is where they got their money.  But we could create an open source type of game like this where you need to spend BTC to get more tokens.

Thoughts?
Something like this already exists based on a Namecoin fork, a blockchain based game with mined own currency:

I am currently building a horror game using the Unreal Development Kit however I doubt it is a game suitable to Bitcoin. I have explored this ideas before though, I even have a top secret game idea that I believe will be very successful, providing I can get some good programmers on board.

This would work well for the emerging microtransaction market.

I work on games.. in my imagination. I've had some interesting ideas, but I don't think they would work well in the real world.

I am not yet inside BitFantasy, but sounds like there is a lot taken from GoldenTowns and I absolutely love GoldenTowns :-)

@Elwar or someone else, can you give us here some stats from the game, nothing is accessible from the outside, I am interested in supporting and I know many people who would do the same, but we need to know more.  The graphics there, do not look too sharp yet...

Do some of you here actively play BitFantasy? 

I looked a little more into it, and looks like a MAJOR development  Smiley

I don't. I dislike paying for something which I cannot test on forehand.

Thx, good to know is a good game.

@bitcoininformation, I think they have to charge something, they need the funds to keep on developing the game... How I see it, they do not have a publisher support, so they need to depend on their members... Neither, do they make any profits by selling some virtual gold or virtual energy.  From what I know, they do not sell anything, members only trade between themselves, this is why they charge for their platform, it makes sense I think...

I have a game which would be ideal for bitcoin as the currency:

http://2dspacemmo.wildbunny.co.uk/

(you mine asteroids for in-game currency, which you then use to buy upgrades)

Only trouble is, development is currently halted due to lack of funding.
