About the Game
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 bitocin rewards and liquid NFTs have been implemented in the game. Satvival comes with a leveling system, so as lon as you are gaming you are earning experience by killing enemies, chopping trees & exploring the map.
When you level up, your receive the rewards displayed image below. We intend to update the battle-pass a few times per year to keep the game dynamic & engaging.
Designing a survival game from scratch with many systems in place it is extremely complciated. That is why we started from integrating multiple gaming systems to bootstrap time without affecting the game quality & functionalities:
- Multiplayer Support
- 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
Crafting & Building
The following types of items can be bought on the shop:
- Wearables - cosmetic wearable items;
- Backpacks - Backpacks to carry stuff;
- Weapons - In-game items such as swords, pistols, etc.
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.
