- Alien World players can purchase lands to earn from.
- Alien World is on Wax Blockchain, Ethereum, and BSC.
In October 2021, Alien Worlds was confirmed as the world’s most popular blockchain game with around 11 million daily transactions by over 700,000 monthly active users, according to on-chain smart contract activity tracked by DappRadar. Launched in beta form during late 2020, two of its co-founders are Sarojina McKenna and Michael Yeates, who both worked on the EOS blockchain
Alien Worlds is a decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible token (NFT) game based on blockchain technology. Players need to acquire unique digital items (NFTs) to earn Trilium(TLM), the in-game currency to do missions.
In Alien Worlds, players quickly discover the appeal of a play-to-earn game that they build and govern for themselves while exploring seven planets across the metaverse. Daily activities include creating Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), meeting other gamers in user forums, and selecting land and tools for a chosen playing strategy.
Alien Worlds focuses on exploring and mining various discoverable planets. Players can visit these planets and start mining their lands to earn the game’s metaversal currency – Trilium.
Players can purchase a planet’s land too, which gives them the rights to earn a configurable percentage of all mined Trilium that has been mined on the player’s land. There is a variety of land that players can acquire. Each land type has its unique features that impact the mining of Trilium.
Each Land has 4 stats:
TLM multiplier – determines how much Trilium you will get.
NFT luck multiplier – determines the chance to get a NFT drop from mining.
Charge time multiplier – determines how long you will have to wait until mining again.
POW reduction – determines how difficult it is to mine the land.
For players to farm Trilium, they need to have farming tools. There are a variety of tools that the player can choose from. Tools are, like everything else in the game(NFT). They can be bought, traded, and sold on the marketplace.
Once the player starts mining for Trilium, the game calculates the chance of the player mining Trilium, NFTs, etc. by combining both the land’s modifiers and the tools modifiers.
Other NFTs that the player can acquire are:
Avatars – These items do not confer powers within the core game elements and are collectibles for aesthetic value.
Weapons – These items are NFTs that will be used in the core fighting game which, as of writing, hasn’t been launched yet.
Minions – Like weapons, these items can be used by players to fight with/against other players in the future fighting game.
Artifacts – These items are a diverse category of NFT that is possibly going to impact gameplay in a variety of ways.
The NFTs in Alien Worlds also have a rarity and shininess level. The rarity levels are (in order of least scarce to most scarce): Abundant, Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Mythical.
The shiny levels are Stone, Gold, Stardust, and Antimatter. Based on their shiny levels, NFTs will increase in power. Each NFT can be upgraded to a new shiny level by sending it to a smart contract accompanied with some Trilium.
In return, the smart contracts will send a new NFT back to the player with a higher shininess.
Trilium ($TLM) is the native utility token of the Alien Worlds metaverse and users can both store their mined Trilium on their preferred chain and use it for the game (BSC and WAX).
Each chain has a set amount of Trilium, which together accounts for 10 Billion Trilium. Every time a user sends an amount of Trilium from one chain to another, the smart contract automatically removes and adds the Trilium from/to the supply that is in circulation.
$TLM has the following use cases:
- Planet Governance: TLM holders may stake TLM to participate in the governance of planets and other potential rewards.
- Staking: Players may stake TLM on a selected planet to participate in TLM and NFT mining.
- In-Game Currency: TLM tokens are the currency in Alien Worlds, where players require TLM to purchase and upgrade items, participate in quests and battles, and other in-game-related activities.
- Gameplay Incentives: Active users may earn TLM as participation rewards to develop the in-game ecosystem and activity.
- Purchase NFTs: Players may purchase in-game items which are minted as NFTs, to mine TLM, engage in battles, and complete in-game quests.
