Dom Hofmann, the co-founder of the popular social networking short-form video hosting service Vine, has announced a non-fungible token (NFT) project called Supdrive. The platform aims to be a blockchain-based game console that uses NFTs to operate the project’s video games.

Dom Hoffman Reveals Supdrive, an NFT-Powered Game Console

On August 18, via Twitter, Dom Hofmann tweeted about a “new project” called Supdrive. “New project alert,” Hofmann said. “Supdrive, [an onchain] fantasy game console coming soon. The Vine co-founder also shared the project’s official Twitter account. There is no website at the moment but there is an active Discord community dedicated to the project. The Twitter account has also been sharing pictures of retro-like game consoles.

Speaking with The Verge, Hofmann explained what the project was about in more detail. Hoffman explained in an interview that Supdrive is similar to the Art Blocks project. The Supdrive project itself will be an onchain console where NFTs allow users to play different games. The report notes that Hoffman’s Supdrive is expected to launch in October.about:blank

Hoffman: ‘Supdrive Games Will Be Old-School Arcade-Style Games’

On Discord, Hoffman said that the “project has gotten more attention than I expected” and he detailed that the first game will be called “Origin.” “Supdrive games will be old-school arcade-style games to start,” Hoffman detailed. “Think titles like Galaga, Pacman, or Asteroid. As the firmware is upgraded, games will gradually become more sophisticated. Perhaps one day we’ll have Super Supdrive or Supdrive 64,” he added. When asked who was developing the games Hoffman said:

I will be developing the first few games, but if things go well the plan is to open up the platform. Artblocks is another good example here

Supdrive will also have a tournament-like feature with “Red,” “Blue,” and “Green” teams. “Inspired by Pokemon, teams are an ongoing meta system in the Supdrive world,” Hoffman concluded. “In the future, you will have an opportunity to commit to your team and receive a free airdrop collectible that signifies [your] membership in the team. Holding this collectible will have effects in certain Supdrive titles.”
