Cosmic Universe is a fantasy-themed multi-planetary adventure-based role-playing game being developed on the Harmony blockchain. It is play-to-earn and integrates exclusive character and land NFT collections, focusing heavily on buying and developing land, harvesting and mining resources, acquiring skills and magic, and forging alliances, all while developing increasingly advanced plots and settlements on the home planet of Crypton and beyond. Following the play-to-earn model, anyone can earn token rewards through skilled gameplay and contributions to the ecosystem.
$COSMIC and $MAGIC, the Cosmic umbrella project’s utility and governance tokens, will be integrated into the game, as well as the native NFT marketplace that will be created for game assets like characters, land, items, and playable magic cards.
Cosmic Universe will be a metaverse and the first land maps released will be on the homeworld planet, Crypton, which will consist of 7 land maps. Cosmic Island will be the central and largest land map, existing as the source of all magic on the planet. It will be surrounded by 6 other smaller islands/land maps, one for each root race.
-Play-to-earn blockchain gaming
-Explore planets, gather and mine resources, develop land and settlements to become increasingly futuristic and advanced. Progress and level-up to unlock more building assets, as well as gain more magical powers and in-game rewards.
-Players can explore the world of Crypton as peaceful gatherers, harvesters, and miners while being a magic-endowed game character, while finding resources, rare artifacts and magic potions, and making a name for themselves as talented master builders and enchanters.
-As players progress in the game, their settlements will become larger and they will be given access to newer and more complex technology, magic, and structures. There will initially be over 100 unique structures that can be built, with more added in further upgrades to the game.
-Players get tokenized rewards for their time, effort, and skill.
-Owning land that has advanced and leveled-up structures on it will result in greater land NFT staking rewards being earned, as well as lead to land appreciating in value.
-Fun in-game events like festivals, minigames, and showcases.
The Cosmic Universe game world is divided into tokenized plots of Land, which act as homes and bases of operation for players and their structures and settlements. Plots can be upgraded over time using a variety of resources and items that can be found within the game. Plots of land are represented as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and can be freely traded by players.
Certain land, according to their location, is more desirable and valuable than others based on what resources can be harvested, gathered, and mined on them. The more land a player has, and a higher degree of value the land has given their location, resources, and level of architectural advancement, the more $MAGIC a player can get for them when staked and sold on the marketplace. Additional to staking rewards, landholders will have first rights to any resources that spawn on their land.
We have a long-term roadmap that will consist of several planets within the game that can be portaled to, and each having its own unique root race and land map, but we will be focusing on the homeworld initially.
There will be 5 different types of usable land within the game, all represented by NFTs:
• Elysian Fields
• Mystic Alpines
• Enchanted Forest
• Forest of Whimsy
• Cosmic Enchanters
This list is in order of the fewest resources located on the land plots within these regions to the most resources.
Every player who has at least 1 plot of land (at least 1 land NFT) will receive staking rewards. Players will receive an additional amount (Ex. 1 MAGIC/day for each level-up). For example, a player who has leveled-up to Level 3 (explained later) will receive 3 MAGIC/day per land plot. If they have 10 land NFTs, they will receive 30 MAGIC/day.
Every one of the 7 root races on the planet Crypton will have its own unique NFT algorithmically-generated NFT collection. These will be usable as avatars within Cosmic Universe and may or may not be tied to user accounts and their levels (Ex. Lvl 9 Wizard #777), or players will have the option to do so.
The levels in the level-up Cosmic Universe Ascension Ladder are:
• Level 1 – Gatherer
• Level 2 – Explorer
• Level 3 – Master Explorer
• Level 4 – Lore Master
• Level 5 – Ambassador
• Level 6 – Planetary Ambassador
• Level 7 – Galactic Ambassador
• Level 8 – Galactic Legend
• Level 9 – Cosmic Enchanter
• Level 10 – Mystic Master
• Level 11 – Mythic Luminary
• Level 12 – Ascended Celestial
• Level 13 – Etherea Lumina
-The more a player levels-up, the more magical abilities they have to wield control over the natural environment. This means they will be able to at first use magic to grow plants and trees, and then crystals and boulders, and more. A player’s magic will be able to create natural features of the environment that will all produce some type of resources, providing them with a new source of resources on their land (essentially, conjuring new resource nodes on their land).
-In further upgrades to the game, players will be able to use their magic to create brand new environmental features that will turn their land plots into completely unique and even alien environments.
Experience Points (XP) are amassed the more time that goes by, the more resources someone harvests, gathers, and mines, and the more structures someone builds, as well as the more advanced the structures become. Here is what this could look like as far as how much XP is needed to level-up:
• Level 1 – 0 XP • Level 2 – 144,000 XP • Level 3 – 377,000 XP • Level 4 – 987,000 XP • Level 5 – 2,584,000 XP • Level 6 – 6,765,000 XP • Level 7 – 17,711,000 XP • Level 8 – 46,368,000 XP • Level 9 – 121,393,000 XP • Level 10 – 167,761,000 XP • Level 11 – 289,154,000 XP • Level 12 – 456,915,000 XP • Level 13 – 746,069,000 XP
-More XP is provided to players who develop more advanced structures, helping them level-up.
-Players will receive receive a certain amount of COSMIC per 1 XP (ex. 0.01 COSMIC per 1 XP), and will receive the accumulated XP once they level-up. Players will also receive a specific amount of COSMIC as a reward for leveling up. These amounts are subject to change in accordance with the value of COSMIC upon the game’s launch and are provided as an example following the Fibonacci sequence:
• Level 1 – N/A • Level 2 – 1,000 COSMIC • Level 3 – 2,000 COSMIC • Level 4 – 3,000 COSMIC • Level 5 – 5,000 COSMIC • Level 6 – 8,000 COSMIC • Level 7 – 13,000 COSMIC • Level 8 – 21,000 COSMIC • Level 9 – 34,000 COSMIC • Level 10 – 54,000 COSMIC • Level 11 – 88,000 COSMIC • Level 12 – 142,000 COSMIC • Level 12 – 230,000 COSMIC
-Players begin to become eligible to explore other land maps on the planet Crypton once they level-up to Lvl 5.
-Leveling-up occurs when a player spends a certain amount of time harvesting, exploring, and mining. The more a player does these, the more they gain XP and level-up. Players will also earn a certain amount of COSMIC whenever they level-up, and will also unlock exclusive NFTs they will have the option to use within the game for access into certain VIP areas.
-Player stats go higher while they progress in the game, unlocking more opportunities as they progress. Players will want to upgrade their plots of land to become the most advanced possible, while leveling-up and receiving in-game COSMIC rewards.
There will be a native NFT marketplace for all assets usable within Cosmic Universe. The marketplace would be on marketplace.cosmicuniverse.one and be integrated into the MetaMask wallet. $MAGIC and $COSMIC, the native tokens of Cosmic Universe, will be used to buy Land NFTs, equipment, speed up build and travel times, and also be distributed for daily check-in rewards, level-up rewards, and various other rewards.
$COSMIC and $MAGIC are already in existence and have a combined market cap of $3.65M, with approximately $250K in liquidity and yield farms across 5 exchanges. Their use as utility and governance tokens will be similar to how AXS and SLP provide a dual-token function in Axie Infinity.
$COSMIC – Used to reach certain thresholds and levels that will allow for more opportunities within Cosmic Universe, such as having enough $COSMIC to unlock advanced artifacts, structures, and magic. The required $COSMIC to unlock these elements within the game will then be burned, while the rest can be kept by the player. Players can also simply gain more XP and level-up to unlock in-game assets, meaning paying $COSMIC is definitely never required, but it will speed up the process of acquiring assets. $COSMIC can be earned through various in-game sidequests, promotions or tournaments.
$MAGIC – Governance, yield farming, land staking and NFT purchasing token. To buy land NFTs, $MAGIC will be needed. Players will accrue $MAGIC revenue every 24 hrs for each plot of land have.
Cosmic Universe will be an evolving and expanding metaverse that will add new land maps and character races over time. There will also be new structure assets that will be added to the game as time goes on, as well as other upgrades. The core features of the game include gathering, harvesting, and mining resources, building structures, and developing land plots and settlements to as advanced of a state as possible, thereby increasing the land’s value, which can then be sold on the marketplace. The game is also strongly tied to the algorithmically-generated NFT character collections for each one of the playable races in the metaverse.
Cosmic Universe falls under the Cosmic project, which was launched on June 20, 2021, and has since then grown to become one of the largest native Harmony projects thanks to its grassroots efforts and vibrant and active community.
The game’s logic and design blueprint (50+ pages’ worth) has been completed and delivered to our selected game development company, which will consist of a team of 12 developers, designers, and a project manager.
The first 10K character NFT collection has been completed and is projected to be released via our own minting site in approximately one week.
A recent minigame gaming tournament a little over a week ago that we held using one of our own games called Wizard Run has seen 321 players participate within the past 2 weeks.
