Symbiogenesis, Square Enix’s NFT game, looks like complete crap

Pretty much every time we post a video game trailer on this website, it’s either because we think it’s cool, or we’re using it to illustrate some sort of gameplay or movie score. In this case, however, we do neither.

In this case, we’re here to wonder. To wonder. To laugh, even. On Symbiogenesisalso known as Square Enix’s NFT game, which got its first “proper” trailer today.

SYMBIOGENESIS Teaser Movie vol. 1【CINEMA SIZE ver.】

This is a big project for the company! This is partly why they relieved Grave robber! So they could…make a game about…selling NFTs. That’s it. That’s what this game is all about (not that you can tell otherwise from the barren footage). It’s about Square Enix making 10,000 NFTs and then trying to sell them in a video game as items, in The Year Of Our Lord 2023, a full year after the ass fell out of the whole NFT scam and the only ones left to care are the idiots left holding the bag, the scumbags with names like LamboGuy6352349234.eth.

Wait, what is the game actually about?

Who knows! symbiogenesis’ the website is incredibly vague, and provides information on everything from gameplay to history disappears in a short, text-based FAQ.

When that trailer says “develop the story,” what they mean is that (as reported by GamesHub):

Square Enix has said that all story chapters can be completed and “played to the end even without having any Character NFT”, but these in-game purchases come with specific “tools for those who have the NFT collector’s art”. Players with character NFTs will be able to read unique stories, easily gain ranked experience, create a “replica” of their character, and gain additional NFT art when missions are completed.

Some story elements will be withheld from players who do not purchase NFTs, affecting the overall gameplay experience.

Incredible. This is the company that gave the world Final Fantasy. For context, let’s recap how we all, Square Enix included, got here. And nothing illustrates that better than this series of headlines:
