Parallel Studios is developing a trading card game called Parallel, which operates on the play-and-earn principle and utilizes NFTs. The game is being built within a decentralized ecosystem established by the Echelon Prime Foundation (Echelon).
The game's storyline is set in a dystopian future where Earth has become uninhabitable due to a cataclysmic tragedy known as "The Event," caused by a new form of fission using anti-matter as fuel. The radiation from this event forced humanity to flee to space, splitting into three expeditions to Mars, Europa, and the outskirts of the asteroid belt.
Thousands of years later, as each parallel of humanity prospered in their respective locations, they discovered that Earth had become a planet of pure, harvestable energy due to the maturation process sparked by "The Event." The other Parallels sought to return and claim the riches of Earth's newfound energy, resulting in inevitable conflict as they had been isolated from each other since "The Event."
Despite the ruin caused by the old humanity, they unknowingly sparked the next technological age, making Earth safe for all life once again. The overall theme of Parallel is of interstellar travel and different people coming together with shared or unique values and identities, providing players with a unique and immersive storytelling experience.
