Interesting and In-Depth Concept
Dark Eden M on Wemix is a horror MMORPG title developed by Wemade Connect, and as mentioned in the game’s title, it utilizes the blockchain-based global gaming platform WEMIX for its digital currency. Despite the interesting premise of the game, both the game and the cryptocurrency wallet associated with it are buggy and dysfunctional.
The title focuses on the war between the Slayers and Vampires. These groups are fighting over the pieces of the Blood Scripture. Vampires want to collect Blood Scripture Fragments to open Dark Eden, whereas the Slayers want to stop the vampires and destroy the very Blood Scripture Fragments the Vampires are seeking.
The premise sounds incredibly promising. However, the title faces a few setbacks that diminish the MMORPG’s unique concept. There is an unwanted feature turning itself on, and problems with the cryptocurrency wallet used to purchase in-game currency, among other issues.
The highest praise for this title goes to the concept and lore within the game. Not only is the war between the two races laid out early on, but the depth put into the motivations and histories of the races is well-written too. In the beginning of the game, you can choose which side you would like to play with, and after choosing your race, there are four subclasses to choose from.
In Eslania, which is the setting within Dark Eden M, 60% of the world is affected by Vampirism. Although true Vampires are their own race, those bitten by Vampires develop physical and physiological changes that make them indistinguishable from true Vampires. These vampires crave both blood and flesh. Vampires argue that they aren’t evil or monsters; they are simply doing what they must to survive.
Slayers see the world in a different light. Slayers believe that Vampires should be exterminated at all costs. Vampires are a threat to the human race. Preventing the Vampires from receiving the pieces of the Blood Scripture means preventing the Vampires from gaining the ability to roam in the sunlight. Sunlight is a vampire’s only weakness.
Auto Play Features Are Buggy, Among Other Problems
Unfortunately, the praise stops at the paragraph above. Repeatedly during gameplay, I would find auto-run or auto-play turn on by itself. I would turn this feature off, however, and within a few minutes it would turn on again. Even after setting my phone down for a few minutes, I found the feature turned on when I stepped away from my phone. It was ridiculous.
Sometimes the app would crash when trying to turn off the auto-play features. This makes the game unplayable and leaving me to only watch my character play the game for me. The game would also occasionally crash after loading screens, and even upon opening the app once. The few minutes I was able to play was alright, however, those moments were far and few between.
An Equally Buggy Cryptocurrency Wallet
Another problem, which is commonly reported in comments on the title’s social media as well as within the official subreddit of Dark Eden M, is the cryptocurrency wallet. There are multiple reports of the app for the WEMIX wallet not working properly. It will not verify users, and repeatedly asks for a passcode to verify after claiming successful verification. One of the selling points of this game is broken.
All in-game purchases within this game are purchased through the cryptocurrency purchased through the WEMIX Wallet. There are other reports claiming that customer support is not able to help in this situation either. Many have found when signing in through a Google account the wallet becomes inaccessible upon future launches. It does happen with all types of accounts, but most users who attempted using a Google account had issues.
Overall, we can’t recommend this title in good faith. The game is barely playable. On top of this, the cryptocurrency system built within the app rarely works. One of the most common ways to sign in or create an account in an app is more likely to crash or become unverifiable too. This game is not worth checking out, regardless of the interesting concept.
Is It Hardcore?
Not At All
Dark Eden M is a practically unplayable title with a broken currency system.
