Restack.AI Launch Battledome, an Alien Worlds Card Game
Recipients of the first Galactic Hub grant, the Ukraine-based team have released their free-to-play card battler for the Alien Worlds community!
The Alien Worlds metaverse continues to grow!
This week, Restack.AI – the Lviv-based Web3 development team, and recipients of the first Galactic Hub grant – released Battledome, a strategic auto-battler that uses NFTs from the Alien Worlds ecosystem.
The game sees players choose an Avatar, Minion and Weapon NFT, an AI playstyle and one of the 6 planets, before fighting against up to 20 other players in a Battle Royale for NFT, Trilium ($TLM) and ORB (an in-game currency) rewards.
Battledome’s first tournament has been announced, taking place from December 1-15. The top 10 players will split a 500,000 $TLM prize pool, with the treasury of each players’ Syndicate – a collection of planetary DAOs within Alien Worlds – receiving 10% of each prize awarded.
Tournament registrations are now open, closing on November 29.
In a recent interview, Alexander Grover, CEO of Restack.AI, discussed how the game came to fruition:
“Alien Worlds instantly intrigued me. It’s straightforward, yet it’s also enticing. When we came upon the idea of a strategy game where we can battle with our NFTs, the concept of Battledome was born. Through our cooperation with Dacoco.io and continuous feedback from the Alien Worlds community, we’ve been able to bring this game to life.“
Edward Evans, Head of Partnerships at Alien Worlds, added:
“Galactic Hubs’ mission is to grow the Alien Worlds metaverse through the best examples of community-created applications, tools, games, art, events & social initiatives. As the first recipient of the GHubs Pioneer Grant, we’re thrilled the talented team at Restack.AI are launching the NFT card battler game Battledome into the Alien Worlds metaverse. Bring on the battles!“
Battledome is available to play right now via browser by heading to battledome.live.
Web3 is all about the community, so it’s great to see Battledome – funded by Alien Worlds themselves – be released to the world.
Critiquing the game as it is today, neither the graphics nor gameplay will win any awards – and as higher-rarity avatars, minions and weapons have a distinct stat advantage, Battledome has in danger of drifting into pay-to-win territory. Once the in-game shop is released and players can spend the ORB they’ve collected, I’ll be interesting to see how that changes the gameplay.
Nevertheless, I’ll be tracking the first Battledome tournament with much intrigue – and I eagerly await Thunderdome, Alien Worlds’ in-house card game!
