Ragnarok Update - Alpha Test is Live, Solving the Art Problem and Bug Bounty

in Ragnarok Game3 months ago


Hello, community!

We know there has been a lack of updates for the last couple of months. The project is still alive and under construction. Ragnarok is not a traditional game. It is a community-based game. It's not developed by a company or by a specific team of people. All the community should be involved. In this post, we will talk more about that, but first, we will share some updates and useful information.

Alpha Test is Available!

Finally! The build of the game is stable enough to begin testing. That being said, expect lots of bugs and even game crashes. The game is still under development, and many of the game's mechanics may change or be adapted for a better experience.

Important note

The current build is a .exe file and can only be tested on Windows OS. Some testers using Windows emulators on Linux have experience issues running the build. You need to download a ZIP folder from Google Drive, extract it and execute the game. We have more details in the Discord Server. We have asked the developers to create a MAC and Linux build. We have also asked if there is a possibility of making the game browser-based.

The Link for the Discord is at the bottom of the post.

Solving the art problem

One of the things that have been a huge setback for the game is the art. As you may know, the main artist passed away and could not finish all the art. Part of the art was done, but most needed changes to be added to the game.

We looked for alternatives and decided to use AI-generated art. 70% will be AI, and artists will retouch 30%. This will save us a lot of time and resources. Here are some examples of the Art we have been able to generate.

The following are examples of art done with AI

This is not the final art





Bug Bounty

Ragnarok's code will be open source. We want the community to help fix bugs and help develop the game. That is why we will create this bug bounty. Currently, we don't have a specific amount, they will be case-by-case biases.

You can check the code here:


The code is open source. It will be updated soon.

Check this interview about Ragnarok by CryptoManiacs:


You can read more about Ragnarok here.

Ragnarok is engulfing all realms, and no mythology is safe. This means you will have Norse, Greek, Egyptian, etc. Ragnarok will be a highly competitive game! It involves chess, poker, and PvP elements!

AI art is always good. As far I see you have a watermark "problem" with some. You should remove them with the model.

Yeah, it's a great move using the AL art, it will save a lot of time. The watermark will not be much of a problem to handle hopefully.

Honestly no reason not to use AI for things so a good move there!

Yeah, using it will make things easier and quicker too. I look forward to seeing the game up and running on the hive blockchain

Awesome to see that things are finally picking up pace!!!

I've been waiting for ragnarok quite long.
I hope in the future your developers find a way to bring the game to us through web browser :)

Keep building and keep us updated, super pumped!

We have also asked if there is a possibility of making the game browser-based.

THIS. Windows-only download pretty much gates out much of the HIVE community to be honest.

The art is pretty insane imho.

It's quite impressive how powerful AI already are.

When is the Linux build? Where can I get the assembly for Windows, from which cloud?

I think the art looks pretty amazing. People may try to hate and say AI-generated art isn’t art, but they are wrong. It takes a good idea for AI to know how to create a masterpiece. Adding in that human touch at the end to iron out any weird flaws is a must.

I look forward to when there is a version to test for Mac. I will wait patiently until then.

Artwork looks damn good! I am gonna have to play this!!
Great work!

To the moon? To the moon....

Good to see an update about Ragnarok, I've got to learn about poker but with chess and fairly good lol.

I thought theycallmedan is anonymous but he is not hehe. Nice to see u finally.

Yours, First loser (if u remember the pun)!

Wow, this is looking really brilliant and those AL arts are amazing too. I don't really think I will be playing this game now, I will have to watch and learn.

I hope the problems get fixed soon, this is looking huge, hehe. Well done to the amazing team behind this development on the hive blockchain.

AI art looks awesome, looking forward to the game :)

Looks like this would be another powerful game on Hive. I got to read more about Ragnarok and prepare to be a part of the journey.

Given that the game is geared to be censorship resistant, decentralized as much as possible, and long term essentially "community-owned" - AI art is actually a really good fit here.

Legally AI art being "ownable" in terms of copyright seems a grey area currently - but in this case, I think that's not really an issue.

Great to see progress being made!

I wish @Ragnarok.game will become most successful game bulid on hive which may bring more new unique users to hive blockchain

Great work keep it up Sr. @theycallmedan ✌️

AI art is unbeatable. I don't know what will happen to artist in the upcoming years.

Damn those are some awesome looking at work. Even if they are not the final product.

The NFTs are awesome. Good to know update of the game. It looks exciting

Wow all these art is incredible. Wish I can play this someday. I need to explore since I'm still a newbie.

Thank you for sharing.

The unity project seems to run out of the box on Linux after installing a certain libssl version on my Linux Mint machine.

wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl1.0/libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.10_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.10_amd64.deb

I can run the game in preview mode. It connects, I can select cards, pets and click the play button which makes the game wait for other players. (of which there are obviously none currently)

Nice project. Unfortunately I have 0 experience using the Unity engine so I won't be able to help much. But if you need a Linux tester just message me.

Merry Christmas

Great idea to use AI art at this stage of the game. It will save a lot of resources.

I will simply leave it here. Standoff365 is the ultimate platform for information security professionals that provides a cyber training ground and bug bounty programs. The platform has attracted over 3,400 security researchers from different countries and has held more than 30 cyber training events since 2016. The Standoff 365 Cyber Polygon offers a simulated environment where white hackers legally attack virtual companies' IT systems, while security specialists investigate the incidents and track the attackers. Companies can use the Standoff 365 Bug Bounty to test their IT infrastructure for cyber vulnerability by paying security researchers to find and report vulnerabilities. The Standoff cyber battle is held twice a year, where attackers and defenders compete in real-world scenarios, including a mockup of various industries. The Standoff cyber battle is live-streamed on the platform's website and is a popular event for information security professionals to enhance their skills.
