Looking for ward to play this game.
Nice project hope can be to the moon
cool project! i wish you the grant!
Great community, with friendly and helpful people. Love the partnerships they do with other harmony projects. If we want Harmony to grow we need this type of interaction. The art is cool and game is promising. DINGOs
I’ve rarely felt immediately identified with a Project, but in this case, both for the social issue they deal with and for the community/family that has formed around it, I believe that the grant they have received is more than deserved.
From here I want to thank both Dingos and Harmony Grant for making us believe that a better place for everyone is possible.
I am personally super excited about Dingos as a whole. I have not posted much in their discord - but I creep and always enjoy the banter.
Currently I am alittle ONE poor so I am saving and hope to pick up my first DINGO soon to get into the nit and gritty of this project and proposal. Great project, and great proposal.
what a cool game play!! very excited for Dingos. :).
Sounds like a very interesting project!
Estoy deseando que saquen el juego en Español para poder enterarme de la historia, me parece un proyecto espectacular.
Been following dingos for a while now and so far i think its a promising project with a capable dev team.
Preguntaré en la discordia sobre eso y te haré saber amigo.
This is one of the projects where you can feel that the community is really included in achieving each milestone. We have here a team who listens, creating a fun and inclusive space for all. Every material that they produce (AMA sessions, podcasts, new game sneak peeks, and community events) is always engaging and well-thought-out. I like that its development has a slow but steady pace, this can only prove that Dingos will be here for the long run!
Great gameplan!!! Super excited to do donuts in my Lambo!!!
Thanks for your proposal, it has been assigned to @papi, who will review and respond shortly
Thanks team. Game looks very interesting. Some questions -
Tell us more about the team. Do you guys have the development resources and art talent to pull this off and launch in Q4?
Financially - how are you funding this project apart from the $50K grant, which is not funding, but meant as a jumpstart. Will you need additional funding in order to launch on mainnet in Q4?
Don’t sandbag - I want a realistic answer.
This project will bring a ton of new people to the metaverse on its own! #DingoForTheWin !!
Been with this project for a while now (although I am mostly lurking), but the team and the community speaks harmony! Looking forward to the ecosystem support so it can be further developed.
Best of luck Dingos team!
Hey @papi ! Thanks for taking a look at our grant, transparency is my number one thing so there will be no sandbagging.
Firstly, in terms of team members (I love to talk about them because they’re key to the success of Dingos-- not just me), here’s a visual team graph that was made about a month ago:
Currently, split between EdWinter and ZETch, the initial Dingos design has been 100% ported into the 3D space, rigged, and animated in about a month’s time of work. Moons has been working on the evolutions of the 2D Dingos.
MrVCrypto has been amazing with producing music for the game. Not only that, but he also specializes in sound design thus bringing that extra crisp needed in the SFX.
The game design whilst in part a collaborative process-- mostly derives from Benelohim. He is the go-to guy in terms of mathematical calculations and formulas. On the other hand, Bombon is the person who put these ideas into game form. He works with both unity and the smart contract. Xeph works solely on smart contracts.
Kevin is our technical writer, for example, the gitbook or the medium. In my earlier writings, I took a more personal approach, however, when sharing those writings with bigger projects/heads, the lack of professionalism affected us, hence the hiring of Kevin.
All the mods (Kleo, Chukapi, KillaBee, and MightyWay) do a great job in keeping the chat in check and keeping them engaged. They also help with social media presence and overall looking for collaborations-- etc.
Unfortunately, Rison (smart contract) and Yosep (moderator) are currently not with us anymore, due to personal time constraints, hence me not posting this said image in the grant.
TL;DR, awesome team, wouldn’t trade them for anyone else!
Personally, I do think that we have the development resources and art talent to pull off the launch in Q4. It is currently about to be the end of Q1, and we have a working prologue to the game ready to be played, albeit, it only has 1 interaction with the blockchain.
Our scope for a feature-complete mainnet launch is to have things such as the casino ready, missions, minigames, and community events. In the future, we can expect housing expansions, talent expansions, and the likes.
We are currently about to hire 2 more Unity Developers to speed the process on the main game’s development and are currently looking for more smart contract developers to continue Rison’s and Xeph’s previous work.
Financially, I have been self-funding the development of the game and I plan to continue to do so as best as I can. According to our current trajectory in terms of spending for development funds and marketing-- (excluding the gains from the NFT sales), I can fund the project for roughly a minimum of 16 months. The grant will help a lot as it will allow for a bigger team without spreading the amount I have allocated to the project too thinly.
I do think that with the game coming out, and subsequently the token-- development fund will become an easier task to deal with. There are also many opportunities available in terms of more NFT collections, battle pass systems, and such.
However, there is always a worst-case scenario. I have started planning for what I would do if I one day seriously cannot continue to fund the project. While some may say that this goes against the “for the community” mentality Dingos brings-- if pushed to this point, I am willing to run a seed investing round to gather development funding. This is not set in stone, and I’m more than likely going to run through the community on what they think.
If you have any further questions, please let me know! I am more than happy to answer them!
Just wanted to voice my support for Dingos as well. Dingo’s has one of the best communities in the Harmony space and the team put a lot of effort into building partnerships with other projects across Harmony. Very much looking forward to the Dingo’s game.
The project with the most welcoming community and everyone is free to share their thoughts. It also has a vast potential; wenlambo is already introduced in the game prologue, more harmony projects to come
