June 6, 2022, Blockchain gaming company Gala Games announced its Wild West shooting game GRIT would debut on the Epic Games Store. The storefront operated by Epic Games serves over 190 million PC and Mac users. It offers players with the world’s most popular games, such as Fortnite.
According to Gala’s official Medium blog, GRIT will be one of the first web3 games with P2E mechanics on the Epic Games Store. It suggests that the blockchain game developer and publisher may supply multiple gaming dapps to the store. This strategic move will bring Gala Games one step closer to getting mainstream due to Epic’s massive gamer base.
Players need a gunslinger NFT to start GRIT
GRIT is a battle royale game where gunslingers meet in solo, duo, or squad matches to fight for rewards in the Wild West. Therefore, players need to get their gunslingers from the Gala Games Store to start the game. A collection of 10,000 unique NFT gunslingers will be available for sale in Character Boxes. It’s worth noting that each character is generative with a unique combination of attributes and traits.
The sale of Character Boxes will happen in phases, with each phase having different prices. Each phase lasts for 24 hours, starting from 1:45 pm CET. The detailed sales schedule is as follows:
- June 6th — Galaverse Attendees- $600.
- June 7th — Founder’s Node License holders- $1200.
- June 8th — Gala Gold- $1500.
- June 9th — Public Sale- 50% of the floor price on secondary markets with a hard floor at $1500.
At the writing, users can buy a Character Box at about 15,000 in GALA, the ecosystem token of Gala Games.

GALA was up 18% after the announcement
GALA, the native token of Gala Games‘ ecosystem, was up by nearly 18% within 24 hours after the announcement, shooting to $0.088. The positive performance could be triggered by the GRIT news or the increased GALA demand due to the gunslinger NFT sale.
According to DappRadar Industry Report May Edition, blockchain gaming has been the most resisting sector to the industry bear market turmoil. For example, the number of daily unique active wallets decreased only by 5% compared to April.
A similar trend appeared in NFT trading volume as well. We found that the NFT sector generated $3.7 billion in May. Although it is a 20% drop from April measured in dollar value, the change in token value shows a fall of only 6.5%.
Furthermore, it’s worth noting that high-quality blockchain games could even outperform the bear market. A good example is Gala’s Mirandus. Impressively, the fantasy RPG game attracted 8,860 unique users to the dapp over the past 30 days, a remarkable increase of 100%. In addition, Mirandus registered 43,350 transactions for the same period, increasing by over 161%. All this is solely based on trading in the NFT collection, as the game itself isn’t live yet.
