Parallel is a sci-fi trading card game (TCG) set in an augmented reality (AR) and geolocation accessible parallel universe. It is developed by Parallel Studios and is housed on the Ethereum blockchain. It is both free-to-play and play-to-earn, and it makes use of NFT items that get transacted through smart contracts. This game is built within the Echelon Prime Foundation (Echelon), which is a nucleus of a shared, decentralized, and community-governed ecosystem, and houses the five streams of human evolution: Augencore, Earthen, Kathari, Marcolian, and the Shroud.
Similar to other NFT card games, the game rewards match winners with tokens. On top of this, a player may gain earnings in Parallel through staking NFTs and tokens, card sharing, market activity rewards, and more. It will also introduce AR/MR gameplay, which is a combination of Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality genre, which will bridge the gap between playing online with an anonymous opponent and playing in person with a friend.
The game is set to release a Beta version before 2023.
