Dysglopia (https://dysglopia.com/) - In this proposal, you will find a comprehensive description of Dysglopia, an immersive A real-time PvP-RPG game where players can earn tokens ($GLS) through real time battles.
Unique Value Proposition (UVP):
- Introducing a gacha-like burning mechanism;
- Collaborations with E-Sports Organizations;
- Every Gloop (NFTs) will have liquidity in Harmony (ONE) tokens;
- Monthly Tournaments for extensive player growth.
- Clan System and Clan Wars
We, at SABR, are a team composed of young indie game developers that aims to build a play-and-earn paradigm in which neither the gameplay or the digital economy aspects take precedence over the other. Both of these dimensions of the game will be completely developed to offer players the best of both worlds.
We chose to build a game that focuses on community gameplay because we feel that the NFT gaming market is currently lacking high-quality games. Most of the available games out there are little more than dressed-up staking mechanisms. Thus, there is an untapped market of gamers that will enter because of its profits and stay because of its gameplay.
As a team that is head over heels with story-telling and world building, we want to put emphasis on the world lore in Dysglopia. The game is set on a dystopian wasteland. The planet Earth’s terrains are inimical, and all its inhabitants are at its oblivion. Yet, hidden behind the planet’s remains, a new intelligent species, called Gloop, emerged as its dominant inhabitants, mutated from the accumulated toxic chemical GLS or Gellies excreted within all the rubbish remains by the planet’s former inhabitants—the human race.
Gloops mutate from their respective natural habitat. Archival evidence reveals seven (7) types of Gloop as a result of a millennia of continuous mutation including: Hydro, Dendro, Geo, Pyro, Alloy, Toxin, and Bolt. Despite their charming appearance, each type of Gloop exhibits extraordinary skills and abilities enabling them to withstand all threats and foes. Depending on their class and rarity, some Gloops are inherently more powerful, thus will emerge victorious against others.
As the myriad of Gloops wander the remains of the Earth, they were able to build a harmonious civilization, thriving and strong. In time, Gloop civilizations take pride and valor in competing with other Gloop civilizations in an arena where the strongest Gloops triumph, and the weakest perish.
Dysglopia will feature clans, wherein players can band together, trade with each other, stake treasury, and battle other clans in a clan war. This feature of Dysglopia will let clans have strategic battles with other clans. The winning clan will receive rewards like GLS, experience points, and bonus loot.
Each clan will consist of a Clan Leader, its role is to select players who will participate in the war and decide when to start the matchmaking. The match will commence once an opposing clan has been carefully paired with the same statistics, and strength of its participants; and so the clan war begins. Setting up a clan will require staking of GLS tokens by the clan leader or clan members inside their clan treasury.
We believe in Dysglopia that we will do our best to make the game raise the standards and become an example of what is capable in blockchain gaming. We are aware of the road that we will be facing. However, when everything goes to plan, it will bring an influx of users into the Harmony ecosystem that will have to use the Harmony network and various platforms that are hosted on Harmony. Additionally, Dysglopia relies on the ability to make fast transactions due to it focusing on community gameplay. By hosting the game, Harmony would display its scaling capabilities and gain an invaluable use case.

Dysglopia will be built in loops, with the first version of the game to be tested by the Harmony community 3 months after the grant is approved and a complete version with DAO control by 4Q of this year.
