Dingos is heavily inspired by GTA V’s role-playing servers, the mix of pure fun and interactions with the community is exactly what we are trying to achieve as a game on the Harmony Blockchain. To mirror Harmony’s low barrier of entry and their extremely accessible on-chain fees, Dingos will be completely free to play, with additional benefits for holders of a Dingo NFT.
The Dingos game is split into two parts: the Prologue and the Main Game.
The prologue acts as both an introduction to the Dingos world and a tutorial area for first-time players. Here, players go through a visual-novelesque quest line where they start to familiarise themselves with the controls of the game and the general progression of quests.
By completing quests, the players will either gain or lose Karma points depending on the actions they choose to proceed with. These Karma points will then dictate whether your Dingo will be part of the Cycle or the Outsiders.
The prologue is finished, has been tested by beta users, and is now ready to be shipped onto the test net for a larger audience. In the test net phase, we will track Dingos that have been released, the time taken for their release, and the Karma points attributed to that Dingo. Currently, without the main game, the only way to access the prologue is by owning a Dingo, however, this will change in the future.
The main game is where the community aspects of the game shine. It will be an open world where Dingos are free to roam around and interact with one another.
Just like GTA V and its many minigames, Dingos will also have a plethora of games to play within it alongside the core storyline. For example, there will be a casino for you to stroke your luck, a sky diving minigame for you to test your skills, and many more.
The main storyline, however, is tied to both the Cycle and the Outsiders.
The Cycle consists of people who scored a positive Karma score in the prologue. Their goal within the main storyline is to progress the city into a more favorable condition. Thus building upon the aesthetics and function of the town.
The Outsiders consists of people who scored a negative Karma score in the prologue. Their goal within the main storyline is to prevent progress from the people in the Cycle. Thus breaking the foundations of the town and bringing more chaos into the mix.
The main game is currently still in its infancy, however, the foundations have been put in place. We currently have a small area to roam in that currently only facilitates single-player. We plan to release an alpha by the end of April 2022 to get feedback from the community.

The Harmony Grant will be a great addition to the development fund, as it alleviates some of the stressors and allows for a heavier push for more developers and marketing.
