Core Pillars

Building a play-to-earn game is a massive undertaking. We have three pillars guiding our development on our quest to build a sustainable and fun blockchain-backed game.

  • Fun is our priority

  • Interoperability is the future

  • Build to decentralize control, but do it slowly

Fun First

There are plenty of talks about sustainability in play-to-earn gaming. Our thesis is that the key to building a sustainable play-to-earn economy is by removing the play-to-earn as a core part of messaging and expectations to both players and our game designers.

Our design team needs to focus on creating real value for our users - by creating a game that people genuinely enjoy and want to spend time playing. As we design, we need to work out how to keep the game experience fun for all types of users while still exploring the new realms of gaming that the blockchain can unlock.


Interoperability is one of the largest unlocks in blockchain gaming. The Interoperability we propose here refers to the interactive experience of Web3 games and Web2 social applications.

If you truly own a virtual item or, even better - if you’ve grown to form a digital identity around a specific digital good - you should be able to take these things that you own into different experiences across the internet. In our mind, these talks about a Metaverse refer to this: an interconnected mesh of adventures, games, and social that your digital identity can flow between.


Complete decentralization is the end goal. But an innovative and calculated approach to idealistic decentralization is necessary.

As we build, we decide decisions, mechanics, and pieces of ownership will all be executed on-chain, given our stage of development and the state of the current technology.

We want to take a product-first approach and release a fun game that offers the best elements of decentralization as quickly as possible. That way, we can learn what is working and what isn’t and adjust and iterate accordingly. As more of our systems become concrete and the blockchain ecosystem becomes more mature, we can decentralize our systems more.

Our primary focus is to have ownership of in-game items on-chain, at the same time, the game mechanism is executed on the blockchain.

This approach allows for 10x quicker development, 10x faster response times, and a much better game experience. However, as the space matures, we can migrate over the actual implementation of mechanics on-chain and into contracts.

We envision and are setting up systems that will allow for decentralized treasury management, economic planning, and more. As the game and ecosystem mature, we also can begin to decentralize more and more of these systems.
