Alpha Mumbai Updates 08.24

Food bank, Ya-sha Ninja, and more updates

Greetings from the Ethernal,

We’ve made a lot of fixes and updates since moving to the Matic Mumbai testnet. You can also keep track of our progress by joining our Discord community.

New Food Bank feature

A “Food” mechanism has always been designed into the dungeon gameplay. Since our game is built on-chain, every move a player makes requires gas (fee in $MATIC) to be paid. We let players pay once for “Food” which pays for all transactions, instead of paying for gas on every move (with annoying pop-ups). Players are incentivized to move in the most efficient way possible to optimize their “Food” usage.

For our Alpha, we’ve been testing “Daily Food” on Discord with our playtesters: every day at 3 PM (ET) we sent some $MATIC to players that messaged us for “Food”. Our new Food Bank feature allows players to claim free “Food” inside the game. Based on a curve, the amount of “Food” a player can claim depends on the total $MATIC balance in the Food Bank. Food Bank’s balance increases with more activities in the dungeon. I will share more details about this design in a future post.
