Peter Molyneux, the troubled developer of Fable and Godus, announced Legacy, a new blockchain-based business sim game. Legacy lets players own NFTs and earn LegacyCoin, a new cryptocurrency that lies on the Ethereum blockchain.

Peter Molyneux recently announced that his studio 22Cans is working on Legacy, a blockchain-based game that will allow players to own NFTs and earn real cryptocurrency. Set to launch in 2022, Legacy is described as a "blockchain business sim."

Players own NFTs for in-game land, where they can establish businesses. They can then design products with a wide array of parts, then trade with other players. What's particularly interesting about Legacy, though, is that trade takes place using LegacyCoin, a cryptocurrency that lies on the Ethereum blockchain. This means that players will essentially be creating and trading virtual products for a real-life currency. If LegacyCoin picks up, Legacy players could see a substantial windfall from their virtual efforts. 

While Legacy's core premise appears interesting, the real question is whether Molyneux and 22Cans will, in fact, pull it off. From Curiosity: What's Inside The Cube? to Godus, Molyneux has faced criticism for overpromising and under-delivering on heavily-hyped games. For now, it remains to be seen whether Legacy will usher in the blockchain gaming genre, or remain just an interesting concept.
