[PROPOSAL] Winter is NEAR: Hard Stone NFTs-ready Game


We are a game development studio located in Minsk and we design & develop a new blockchain game Hard Stone β€” open world action game, built on Unreal Engine 5 and available in 2 game modes: single-play and competitive multiplayer. Stone-punk settings reinforced by in-game NFT assets (characters, vehicles and pets) will give players unprecedented experience of play and earn. More info: https://hardstonegame.com
