As the Satvival closed beta release date gets closer, we have put together a blog post to get started with this game & other amazing things you can find in Elixir.
Have you purchased Satvival already? Then you should have received an email with very easy instructions about how to get started. But we will go over the process anyways, since it is extremely simple 💁♂️
Once we are logged in Elixir, on the game page we can purchase the early access. The payment gateway accepts fiat credit cards & bitcoin + lightning network payments.
The process is very straight forward. Purchasing a game in Elixir takes less than 30 seconds. Once you have the game in your library, just click on it to start downloading the game. Next, click on it to launch the game and start stacking sats!
In case you still don't know 🤷 when the private beta release please check the roadmap at satvival. You can find additional details about the game development progress & milestones. There is also an internal game development roadmap with much more details about game mechanics here
About the Game
🔥 Satvival will transition from "castaway look" to "cypherpunk castaway look". Let's have some details about the core of this bitcoin survival game.
Lightning Network Game
While designing Satvival game we did our best to make it a game for everyone where the Bitcoin integration is not the core of the game but rather an additional feature that makes the game more interactive and gives players the opportunity to monetize the time they spend playing games.
This is because we noticed that most of the "blockchain games" offer a static gaming experience, as the main focus of the studios which created them was on the technology side of the game and not on the gaming experience itself, which is limited to few in-game moves and the rest is all about trading and speculation.
A battle-pass with bitcoin rewards and liquid NFTs have been implemented in the game. Satvival comes with a leveling system, so as long as you are gaming you are earning experience by killing enemies, chopping trees, crafting & exploring the map.
When you level up, you receive rewards. We intend to update the battle-pass a few times per year to keep the game dynamic & engaging.
Play2Earn | Bitcoin Battle Pass - Early Access
Play2Earn bitcoin! In this first battle pass you will be able to earn NFTs and satoshis while playing.
In each level you will earn satoshis and if you complete the battle pass you will be able to earn over 100.000 satoshis!
You will find in this first battle pass rewards such as the HODL jersey, Gothic pants or 3.000 sats at level 44. You will receive the items and bitcoin instantly from the moment that you level up.
Don't forget that you can withdraw your Elixir bitcoin balance any time to your private lightning bitcoin wallet or use over 3.000 stores such as Amazon or Nike.
Our goal with the dev tracker is provide players with more visibility into some of the bigger community issues that we've seen reported and working on. Note that this board doesn't account for ALL the things we're tracking. We'll be updating the cards here at least once a week and will include a link to the board when we do dev updates. Also be sure to be tracking us on Twitter.

Designing a survival game from scratch with many systems in place it is extremely complicated. That is why we started from integrating multiple gaming systems to bootstrap time without affecting the game quality & functionalities:

- Character System
- Combat System (Weapons/Unarmed)
- Ranged Weapons System (Pistol/Rifle/Bow/Crossbow/Assault Rifle/Etc)
- Building System (Modular)
- Resources System (Trees Сhopping/Ore and Stones)
- AI System (Enemies & Background animals)
- Dynamic Interactive Foliage System
- Advanced Spline System (Seagull/Fish School/Etc)
- Complex Footstep System (Prints/Sounds/VFX)
- Game Settings System (Graphic, Input, Game, Audio, Save/Load)
- Mini & Global Map System
- Water & Swim System
- Multiplayer Chat System
- Ability System (Food & Drinks & Books)
- Weight & Damage System
- HUD/UI/Hotbar System
- Inventory System
- Items & Durability System
Satvival map will have different islands where you can complete different challenges, dungeons or caves. Dungeons have final bosses, elite and normal enemies. If you complete the challenges there is a small percentage drop to receive a rare NFT.
Satvival map will evolve, get bigger and improve with time, like wine🍷 gets better with time.
You can customize your character. Right now you can customize: hair, hair color, pants color and skin color. We will add more features in the future.
Planned feature: After entering a new server you will be able to customize your character. Make sure to personalize your character the way you want. You won't ble able to edit it after, unless you restart your progress in the server.
In Satvival you will find different resources. Find resources on trees, ores, sand and meat from animals.
Store and protect your resources in your chest. If someone kills you and respawn, you can take your stored resources so you don't have to start from the beginning.
At the moment the buildings are not linked to the server.
Crafting & Building
Players will be able to create instantly buildings or items if they have the materials. Buildings will have skins (NFTs) to personalize your base! Such as walls, roofs, doors, chests, windows, etc.
To craft items you will need to gather materials from chopping trees, mining, melting, etc. For example for cooking you will need to combine different objects and items. You will need to make a campfire, put wood on the campfire and turn on the fire to cook the crab meat.
You can construct your base with different materials: wood, stone and iron. We might add more materials in the future. Other players won't be able to build near your base if you create a totem to claim the zone.
At the moment, you won't be able to edit your buildings or destroy them (unless you hit them with your weapons). So be careful of where you put your foundations or walls!
You will need to create different items to be able to craft better items. Like metal swords, weapons, clothes, armor, bullets, better chests to store your items... Make sure to build inside your base the chest to protect it from thieves! 😈
To make glass you will have to dig with the shovel to get sand. After you get the sand, put the sand on the furnace and you will be able to get glass!
Don't forget to create your bed, if you die you will be able to respawn in your base. There are a lot of bad players with bad intentions like killing or stealing your inventory.
Weapons & Items
In Satvival you can craft different weapons. Obviously the harder to make, the better it is. You can make weapons from melee weapons made from wood to metals, bows and even firearms!
Get wood from chopping trees. Use an axe instead of a stone to do it faster. The better the axe the faster you will be able to chop the tree.
Farming ingredients to make bullets or arrows it's important too, so make sure you have arrows when you are using a bow! It might mean death or life in some situations.
Items & weapons have durability. If a wood axe runs out of durability you will have to repair it to use it again, or craft a new one! Better tools 🛠 also have more durability!
Food, drinks and books it's important to have them to survive in Satvival. Food takes out your hunger and drinks your thirst. Cooked food or superior drinks take out your hunger or thirst much better.
After leveling up you will be able to spend skill points on different characteristics like:
- Strength: increases your damage and carried weight.
- Agility: increase critical damage and base armor.
- Stamina: affects maximum health and health regeneration.
- Intelligence: increase base damage to ore veins and trees when gathering resources.
- Luck: chance of critical damage.
Bitcoin NFTs (planned)
Players will be able to use the NFTs to personalize their in-game items such as clothes, weapons, tools and buildings!
The following types of items can be bought on the shop:
- Wearables - cosmetic wearable items;
- Backpacks - Backpacks to carry stuff;
- Buildings - skins to personalize your base;
- Weapons - In-game items such as swords, pistols, etc.
Supply properties (planned)
Each item belongs to a rarity class which determines its total supply:
- Legendary - 1 unit;
- Rare - max supply of 100 units;
- Premium - max supply of 500 units;
- Normal - unlimited supply.
All in-game items are tokenized using the Bitcoin-sidechain Liquid, implying that any limited series of an item can be proved truly limited, and any user can check that their items belong to such limited editions, as well as their specific Liquid id and UTXO id.
This feature is crucial to strengthen confidence in users over the scarcity of items (and their authenticity when coming from a previous owner), and ultimately to develop a strong and reliable asset market, particularly for rarer items.
The players will be able to select different servers. The progress in each server will be persistent and different from one. For example:
- NA Server 1
- NA Server 2
- EUW Server 1
- EUW Server 2
Game Modes (planned)
There are several game modes:
- Official servers online: battle-pass is active here. If you die, you lose 10% of your experience, you lost your inventory and other players can use your item with the equipped NFT (skin).
- Hosted online by an user or locally: both options don't give satoshis and NFTs. The skins that you acquire here won't be NFTs but you can use your own NFTs in these game modes.
