Hash Rush brings cryptocurrency mining to the world of real-time strategy gaming. Also the crowdfunding campaign raises over $1.83 million. So on October 20, 2017, the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) crowdfunding campaign came to an end. Yet being developed for Windows, the games also coming to Linux.

“Hi Todd,

It shouldn’t be too much work to create a Linux port. But since we’re really in the early stages of development. Our focus as of now is (still) Windows.”

While this is not entirely uncommon in Linux gaming. A Windows release followed by Linux and likely Mac as well. Since the game is Unity 3D. Yet we are eager to dive in to some gameplay. Since the game resembles aspects of The Universim.

So more than 1000 gamers and cryptocurrency investors participated in the ICO. Participation in the crowdfunding campaign rewarded backers and investors with the in-game currency Rush Coin. As well as pre-alpha access to Hash Rush, unique items and more.

Nathan Ziedonis, Creative Director and co-founder of Hash Rush, responds: “It has been an incredible journey so far. We’ve been working on this project for over a year, and did not dare to imagine our crowdfunding campaign would be so successful. We want to thank all ICO participants from the bottom of our hearts. They have made everything possible. Because of them, we’re able to make Hash Rush a reality. And we’ll truly bring the cryptocurrency and gaming worlds closer together. Our next steps involve releasing a pre-alpha version in December this year. And we’ve planned our official release date for Q3 2018. Certainly, there’s still much to be done before then. But the future couldn’t be brighter!”

The Hash Rush team plans to have the newly minted Rush Coin. This will also be live on at least one cryptocurrency exchange by the end of November. This allows ICO participants and the wider public to purchase and sell Rush Coin tokens. In the coming weeks, the game dev team will release more information. Defining which exchange(s) Rush Coin will be tradeable.

Players can get Rush Coin in four ways:

  • Mining the in-game Crypto Crystals
  • Exchanging items and units with other players
  • Swapping currencies with other token holders
  • Completing specific missions

Alpha Gameplay with Commentary:

Hash Rush is scheduled to enter pre-alpha testing in December 2017 for pre-sale and early ICO participants.
