In this article, we will develop an Arduino Starship game which will be displayed on an LCD display 16x2. The game will be controlled by a joystick and by a computer through the Serial Monitor. In the game, the player controls the flying starship and a high score is stored in EEPROM. We will deal with each element separately and how it will all work together. The project is interesting and opens up opportunities to learn new: how to make and display a custom character on the LCD display. How to read and write data to EEPRom (non-volatile memory)
Congratulations, @chingiz! This article will be bookmarked for the next parts shortage! You’ve won $1,750 and a MegaFans NFT!
As players continue to explore and discover Elden Ring’s vast open world, the prospect of PvP might be an enticing venture.

The growth of P2E economies comes at a time when more people than ever are getting out of the office and looking to become their own bosses by freelancing. They have the potential to evolve and become a reliable secondary income stream to support people who want to make this change.
A fascinating article @kellanjansen! You’ve won $1000!
In 2017, Hong Kong-based mobile game developer Animoca Brands was valued at less than $6. The emergence of NFT and the belief in the prospects of this technology led to the fact that today the company is worth about $8 billion. Yat Siu's childhood was in the 1980s in Austria, where he felt disadvantaged because of his Chinese background. After dropping out of college, he founded more than a dozen companies before his first success came. In 2012, all games produced by Animoca were suddenly removed from the AppStore. Animoca had to declare bankruptcy in 2017.
An inspiring story, @strateh76! Congratulations on winning $800!
Western gamers and developers have come out strongly against NFTs - but there is an information gap that’s inflaming the situation. As an experienced game developer, I’ve collated many of the statements from both sides to attempt to find some middle ground. The pushback that we get in Western games is not happening elsewhere and in many other sectors. Some people are trying to take advantage of the situation for personal gain. Large companies are scared of the NFT crowd. However, those large companies can purchase or invest in successful companies in NFT space.
This article answers some questions that plenty of people have had. Well done, @sillytuna and please enjoy your prize of $500!
