UNLINKED emerges from the team’s shared passion for science fiction stories. We tried to imagine what happens when, in a hyper-connected world (like the one we’re living in), the physical and technological connections on which humanity relies suddenly break down.
The question appeared all the more relevant in the wake of the ongoing global pandemic. While we had originally planned the game as a collectible tabletop card game, as our thinking progressed we saw an opportunity to expand the world of UNLINKED also into the digital sphere. Without losing the materiality of the tabletop game, the WAX blockchain immediately offered the best fit for an NFT-based, play-to-earn iteration of UNLINKED.
