On-chain video games for BTC will become a reality; Inscriptions have received a revolutionary upgrade.
BTC video games will soon be on-chain, thanks to revolutionary Inscription upgrades.
BTC epitaphs have been a topic of great debate in the BTC community over the past few months, dividing it into two camps. And the latest upgrade, “Recursive Epitaphs,” may also be controversial as it will allow epitaphs to “indirectly” break the 4MB block space limit.
Charlie Spears wrote on Twitter, “Casey Rodarmor, the planner of Ordinal, has just proposed a recursive epitaph, and the real fun begins now.”
This idea is similar to BRC721, although the size of each individual epitaph does not exceed 4MB, the combined epitaphs can already surpass this limit .
Earlier this year, the Ordinal protocol introduced a feature that allows any file smaller than 4MB to be completely engraved on the chain. But there is also a limitation that the different epitaphs do not know each other and cannot refer to each other.
With the introduction of recursive epitaphs, this situation will change.

As a well-known member of Ordinal summarized on Twitter as “Leonidas.og,” epitaphs can now use a special syntax to request the content of other epitaphs , which will open the door to new use cases for Ordinal supporters.
“For example, instead of engraving 10,000 JPEG files separately for the PFP collection (which would be very expensive), it is better to engrave 200 traits from the collection, and then make 10,000 epitaphs, each of which uses a small amount of code to request traits and programmatically render images,” Leonidas explained.
As for BTC Apes, this will save more than one million dollars in transaction fees.
In addition to the existing JPGs, 3D art can now also find its way onto the blockchain.
“But we can think bigger,” wrote Leonidas, who sees another new use case as uploading code packages for complex applications.
Ordinal Hub said on Twitter that the BTC Core client can now be stored on the blockchain as a new use case.
BTC Core is about 15MB in size, previously too large due to block size limitations, but recursive epitaphs will be the new solution .
“Imagine being able to split BTC Core into several parts, only loading one executable frontend, and then having the program “call” the code it needs from other epitaphs, allowing you to run BTC on BTC.”
Furthermore, according to the Ordinal community, complex 3D video games can soon be fully run on BTC. Developers can divide the game into multiple glyphs containing different snippets of code and display them in a single glyph.
Leonidas concludes: “BTC is essentially an internal internet where every file can request data from other files. Official Ordinal resource managers and resource managers like ord.io will soon support recursive glyphs and turn them into an effective BTC network browser. Have fun playing in the world of BTC!”
In conclusion, it remains to be seen how the Ordinal community will receive the new upgrade, and controversial discussions seem to be inevitable.
