Hash Rush is a real-time strategy game currently in development for PC. Set in the fictional Hermeian Solar System, players join one of three competing factions and get to work building a mining colony that will become the envy of the solar system.
You start off on a planet as the leader of a mining colony and it will be your task to build and develop your mining colony whilst completing both single player objectives and faction goals. As you progress you will find yourself managing large colonies on multiple planets and co-operating with other players in guilds.
Some of the objectives and goals that you can work your way through include fending off dangerous wildlife, defending against raiding parties, environmental threats and much more.
There will be guilds, and with that comes a special mercenary trading system. Members of the guild can sell some of their armed units to the guild; players can then hire these units to raid other players, and if the raid is successful the player that ordered the raid will gain some resources looted from the defender and the guild that supplied the mercenaries will take a cut of the loot.
The exact cost to start playing the game is yet to be determined, but we're hoping to keep it below $30. At the start of the ICO, 0.1 ETH was approximately $29, and this is what we'd like to aim for.
You won't need to own any cryptocurrency to get started. Instead, we aim to facilitate that to ease newcomers into the crypto space, and so we're designing Hash Rush to be approachable and enjoyable regardless of one's blockchain familiarity.
No, Hash Rush is not being designed as a free-to-play game. There will be a free, playable tutorial, but the economics of a game tied to real-world earnings through mining make free-to-play unfeasible.
The units and structures you control will all contribute to your colony's mining efforts, and these will correlate with real-world
hashing power in our mining farm. The more you're able to mine in-game, the more cryptocurrencies you'll be earning.
Every 24 hours, all the mined cryptocurrencies are divided among each faction depending on their total hash power. Once a
week, each factions' players are paid in Ethereum in proportion to the total hash power they contributed.
There are three playable Factions in Hash Rush: The Ernacks, a race of small, cloaked miners; the Space Pirates, who specialize
in scavenging and raiding; and the Highborn of Eldaria, a noble race of elven magic users.
Players in the same faction can benefit from linking their planets operations via joint transit zones, as well as unite to
compete in regular challenges against the other two factions. Those who prefer to go it alone can also participate
in single-player questions and solo challenges, gaining bonuses that benefit both their in-game and real-world mining
No â€“ the specifics of this are being worked out and we will publish full details when we have them. Rush Coin tokens will
be the main currency used in the game, but you don't need to own any beforehand.
Absolutely zero cryptocurrency, blockchain or mining knowledge is required, rather, essential concepts will be revealed to
players during tutorial stages (which experienced miners or crypto enthusiasts can skip). We're designing Hash Rush
to be approachable and enjoyable regardless of one's blockchain familiarity.
Yes â€“ we plan on releasing free updates that will offer additional factions, maps and quests for our players. The team
are committed to seeing Hash Rush players enjoying a deep, immersive and ever-growing strategy game.
Hash Rush is being developed for Windows, but as we're still early in development we can't give you the exact required specs.
We can assure you, though, that you won't have to have a mega-machine for Hash Rush to work.
We will be launching in English, but as Asia-Pacific is the gaming industry's largest market, we are also releasing localized
version of Hash Rush in Japanese and Korean. More translations will be announced as we expand into additional regions.
Right now our team is entirely focused on the PC version. Far down the roadmap we have our sights set on bringing Hash Rush
to mobile, but have no confirmed dates for this. We'll release details on mobile, other games or other genres when
we have them. For now, it's all about building the core game!
ICO stands for Initial Coin Offering, and is a form of crowdfunding that Hash Rush uses. In exchange for taking part in the ICO, you get Rush Tokens (which are used to buy items from the in-game store), early access to the game and many other in-game treats. You can find out more in our ICO page.
We recommend you use My Ether Wallet (MEW) or the official Ethereum Wallet (Mist). Note that you can store your tokens on
your Ethereum address on an ERC20-supporting hardware wallet such as a Trezor or a Ledger Nano S, but you may need
to use MEW to manage them.
RC tokens will be sent to participating Ethereum addresses as soon as the transfer has been confirmed. We will send your
tokens immediately, but because there's no way to predict network congestion in the future, it may take a few hours
for your tokens to arrive in your wallet.
Any in-game items and other rewards will be waiting for you in your inventory upon verification of your Hash Rush game account.
The Hash Rush economy, including our specific plans for RC, are all being worked on at the moment.
We will use market mechanisms to ensure a balanced economy (both in-game and pertaining to the RC coins in the real world).
Therefore, we will use both inflationary and deflationary techniques to ensure an adequate and fair value is maintained.
There will likely be a slight, healthy inflationary effect but this will be managed to ensure a fair and appropriate
gradual increase in prices.
We have heard from some community members that they are not able to see their Rush Coin after confirming that their ETH transaction
was successful. Your tokens are there, but you may have to follow these steps in order to do so:
1. Enter your wallet 2. Under ‘Token Balances’, select the option to ‘Add Custom Token’. 3. A drop down
will appear and you will be required to enter the Rush Coin Token Contract Address: 0x2DBE0f03f1dddbdbc87557e86dF3878AE25af855
4. Enter the Token Symbol: RC 5. Enter the number of decimals: 8 6. Upon submitting these details,
the number of Rush Coins tokens should now appear in your MyEtherWallet.
