Nobody from my team had any previous experience with blockchain technologies, so this was the perfect opportunity. Furthermore, the cool people from Fleta wanted a projected implemented on top of their blockchain to showcase it's advantages over other solutions. After some brainstorming and initial pivoting, we came to the final idea of Flace!
What it does
Flace, a portmanteau of Fleta and Place, is a collaborative and artistic game largely inspired by Reddit's 2017 April Fools game called Place. After registering on the blockchain and logging in, a player can selected a pixel on a canvas of an arbitrary size (64x64 initially) and assign any 24bit color to it. Unlike Reddit's implementation, the global state is tracked on a blockchain which sends notifications to each logged-in client whenever an update happens (0.5 seconds).
