-MMORPG, built on Unreal Engine 5, Play 2 Earn, space exploration and PvP, NFT upgrades
[Describe in less than 2,000 words on how this will benefit the blockchain ecosystem. Be specific about the goals and outcome of the proposal, with go-to-market and/or user-acquisition strategies if possible.
Galactic Pirates (GP) aims to be the next largest game for harmony. The community and hype we plan to bring, will expand the current ecosystem.
The GP game is planned to be built on the newly released Unreal Engine 5.
There are a lot P2E “games”, that are pixelated, and really are just daily transactions to earn. .which in the end creates an inflationary environment… that’s where GP is different.
GP will be a mmorpg, have a native “PIR” token, space exploration, planet exploration/mining, ship building, upgradable & usable NFT assets, PVP, PVE, buy/sell/rent of all NFT assets and much much more.
Our plan eventually, have an in game Marketplace for all NFTs.
GP is in talks of creating “worm holes” this will enable us to allow to cross chain onto different networks in the future.
We focus on user enjoyment as priority, secondly come’s P2E implementation. We want to create a game like before Blockchain, where you just play for hours on end, day after day because its simply enjoyable. We added in P2E as second priority, doing this, the game’s native token should be much more stable and built for longevity, for the community.
Our biggest thing for Harmony is that we are targeting traditional gamers. Most of which may not be in the crypto space… The traditional gaming market value is $ 250 billion and climbing, we are targeting that community, this will bring new faces, new money, and they will naturally be part of the harmony ecosystem.
We are in the process of planning a small separate mobile “minigame”, also a P2E and uses PIR token. We believe this is paramount to close the gap between traditional gaming and the new world of blockchain gaming.
All of the above are some great reasons how we can work with Harmony now, and in the future to help each other grow, for a long stable future.
What stage of the product or idea are you (and your team) at? Is it live on Harmony and/or another chain? How many active users do you currently have, or aim to acquire? How much funding do you need? What are your milestones? What help do you need, or what gaps are there in your team?]
Galactic Pirates are in the planning/token deployment stage. There will be a lot of development time and requirements in the gameplay (UE5). We have the in-game NFT’s well underway, the discounted “Incubator” NFT and early bird pre-sale are going to be announced soon once we get a few things finalised. Token contract audit, KYC process, expanding the current team and to build our community.
We recently transitioned from a much smaller network to Harmony, and we were able to build a total of 1500+ strong community across all socials. Once we find our feet here, we plan to build up to 5k, then 10k members, and so on. Bringing in members outside of blockchain is considerably harder, and thus we expect the community to boom when the mini game is launched.

In-game NFT “Tier ranks” for marketplace
We are requesting 50k launch funding to help us get into motion, also some supportive help with the Harmony core team to assist us along the way with contract/in-game requirements needed to launch on Harmony ecosystem, we are also requesting Harmony to assist us in being seen and heard on their Ecosystem
15k initially- upfront first for token contract audit + funds for building in game contracts
15k after presale launch, together with funds from sales, we will then use the funds to continue game development and advertising to traditional gamers - we aim to target players who are familiar with "Star Citizen and No Mans Sky for example. This may include posting advertising on well known PC gaming sites, and YouTube/Twitch promotional videos. We will obviously have an introduction to Harmony in the ads/promo videos, so this will be beneficial to everyone.
10k - NFT contracts & audit, launch onto marketplace
10k - reach 10k community
[Milestones, number of users/transactions]
GP’s metric for success will be based of the game and player engagement, our aim is to bring in a large untapped community into the blockchain gaming space, this will be a big factor but not the only factor for our success.
We aim to have around 10k active players, if the “Incubator NFT’s” sell out (10k), that will equate to $3.2 million in revenue, additionally there will be many in-game upgradable NFT’s that can be equipped, sold, traded and bought for the community to utilize. This creates continuous transactions and constant demand. We intend to have certain special NFTs linked between the minigame and the main GP game, creating another bridge between communities.
We will have milestones such as:
The early bird and pre-sale NFT’s when they are sold out before launch
successful token launch
Minigame game launch & collaboration back to harmony
Continuous game updates for long term enjoyment and game improvement
