HarmonyWorld - Metaverse on Harmony

:question: What is HarmonyWorld?

HarmonyWorld is a large-scale multiplayer sandbox-style game where the player explores and discovers a vast world with unique experiences intertwined throughout. The game is centered around user-generated content, allowing players to create story-driven adventures and unique experiences for other players to enjoy.

The world will be completely seamless and allow for quick travel between land. In the center of the map, a social hub will be placed with several locations in which players can meet up and socialize.

HarmonyWorld unlike other metaverse projects wants to empower players’ creativity and will do so by building a robust set of tools, so everyone, no matter their skill level, can build and express themselves. Players will be able to set up guilds and collaborate on projects and assets/cosmetics.

:person_fencing: Players

HarmonyWorld is completely free to play and thus avatars will be provided for the users free of charge. The overall experience will be mostly determined by the community as the majority of the map will be built by the players for the players.

Players can choose between flexible structures in which they can play alone or truly embrace the metaverse feel by interacting with those around them through proximity voice chat. HarmonyWorld also allows players to opt to fully embrace play2earn and seek as much profit as possible or simply hang out and enjoy the experience.

:tokyo_tower: Player Hub

The hub will be the main area for activities and socialization in which players can meet new friends and interact in various activities together. We plan to have many different types of buildings including clubs, stores, transportation areas, etc. The hub will be the main spawning point of players in the game which means that land closest to the hub is likely to become the most valuable.

:shopping_cart: Marketplace

The marketplace is your one-stop shop for all HarmonyWorld related digital items including cosmetics, land and assets made by the community. When you first enter the marketplace you will be presented with a list of new and featured items. As with so many creators there is likely to be an overflow of assets for sale.

:desert_island: land

A single tile of land is 48x48 meters. The sizes of land that can be purchased together are shown below. Adjacent land owned by the same person or guild can also be built across to create larger structures, games, and much more.

Land based revenue

  • Renting
    You will have the ability to rent out your land for a period of either 7 or 30 days on the marketplace. After the rental period has ended, you will have the option to either restore your land back to its original state before the rental period started or keep the land in its current state if the tenant has changed it in any way.
  • Entrance Fees
    You can charge entrance fees to your land either as a one-time fee or on a per-entry basis.
  • Play2Earn
    Landowners may create unique play2earn experiences by accumulating tokens in your vault and later paying them out to players through a variety of events. For example, one could build a platformer, charge fees for upgrades such as jumping height or moving speed, and later pay a percentage of tokens to players who complete the platformer.
  • Staking
    You will have the ability to turn your land into various structures which generate income, such as a transportation hub.

:paintbrush: User Creations

HarmonyWorld will provide tools to allow creators the ability to create and sell custom assets. This will include cosmetics, creatures, machinery, and much more. With such great accessibility, many users will be able to provide their own creative inputs which will make HarmonyWorld a unique user experience formed from the individual experiences of thousands. We believe everyone, not just artists, should be rewarded for creativity and effort, and through crypto and sandbox technology that is finally a possibility.


Note: The graphics and textures are just placeholders for now, and will be updated to reflect our vision of creating a beautiful, vibrant world for everyone to enjoy.

:scroll: Scripting

HarmonyWorld features a powerful behavior system in which creators can create interactions through LUA. This will allow creators to control fundamental aspects of the world such as player movement, UI, and interactivity. Scripting will also allow users to shape the world in real-time by creating and controlling objects and or groups of objects.

  • The HarmonyWorld editor features a clean code editor with syntax highlighting.
  • Scripts are always server-sided, therefor any client events/actions have to be registered directly onto the player in for example the playerConnected event.

:robot: Behaviour

Behaviour allows creators to take control in a more simplified manner than scripts. Behaviours are event-based, and allow creators to think about programming as if it were a cause and effect chart. For example Because a player touched a zombie, the effect is that they get infected.

Behaviour is divided into sets of rules in which rule contains a set of conditions and actions. If there are multiple conditions in a rule it will be treated as “AND” requirements. For example:
download
The above example would only trigger the action which in this case kills the player, if both conditions are fulfilled, the player is colliding with anything as well as the F key being pressed by the player.

$50k Investment
$50k Launch Grant

We understand the value of specialists in the development of a successful project and wish to onboard more into HarmonyWorld. The specialties we anticipate requiring are the following: Servers in order to create a highly scalable architecture, legal in order to stay compliant with ever changing laws, and marketing to launch an aggressive campaign and elevate our user base to the next level.

very nice project. all the best team

Thank you for submitting your application and welcome to Harmony, @HarmonyWorld!

Looks very promising and love to see a well thoughtout proposal.

That being said, can you share a bit background about the team behind this project and also the growth plans regarding how you plan to make this game a success?

In addition, this proposal fits best to the Launch grant based on the guidelines at Apply for Grants or DAO

Applications of each launch must have prototyped a feature-full product. Harmony helps incubate these founding teams with product development, fundraising, and talent recruit.
We recommend a $50K equity-free contribution each:

$10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet,
$10K after forming a DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig with our DAOs,
$10K after launching on our mainnet with audit,
$10K after 1K daily active users (with launch video, full PR promotion),
$10K after 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process).

Moreover, we recommend a 5-out-9 multisig account on Gnosis Safe with 3 governors from the project team, 3 governors from the project community, and 3 governors from Harmony DAOs – namely, ONEcommunityDAO, ONEdeveloperDAO, ONEincubatorDAO.

In all cases, we ask for 3-month exclusive campaigns with Harmony before more porting with other chains. We also offer follow-on investments – see 50 Investments ($20M) above; but, at the moment, you must have an outside, lead investor for us to match the funding terms. All codes, development materials and production assets must be fully open, preferrably with MIT or BSD licences; weekly updates must on sent on forum; and, all server deploys or mobile apps must be easily clonable.

Can we agree to the above terms for this project?

Thank you,
HU

Love the set up, time for a true sandbox game on Harmony! All the best!

Here is some more information about our team
Raja S - Founder / Lead Developer
He has worked in game and web development for multiple years as well as having a deep interest in sandbox type games.

Wilhelm B - Senior Developer
Wilhelm B has had a active development role in multiple games companies as well as having a deep passion for user creativity.

Daredevil - Solidity Developer
Daredevil is a experienced developer with passions in machine learning, solidity, and game development. He has worked in the health industry to create and or optimize a variety of products and marketing campaigns.

Julian - 3D Modeler
Julian has been 3D modeling and doing voxel arts for a long period of time as well as working as a freelancer for multiple years.

Mahek - Design / GFX
Mahek has studied user design and also has a decade’s worth of experience in game design on a professional level.

Our marketing strategy will consist of 3 components:

  1. Working with established metaverse influencers.
  2. Providing cosmetics as rewards.
  3. Rewarding the creativity of creators.
    Since the core game is free to play anyone will be able to jump in which we believe will attract a significant audience.

We do agree to the terms under the launch grant.

Thank you for the detailed info! A few follow up questions:

  • What’s the story of this game? In a few words, why would someone choose to play this game? what is the attraction or the lore that sets you apart?
  • I see on your website that tokenomics are not ready yet. Given this is a play 2 earn game, tokenomics surely play one of the most important parts. what are your plans to address this?
  • Is there a feature complete product ready to test?

Thank you,
-HU

  1. Like most sandbox games a story will not be the focus of the game. Users can create their own stories within their land if they choose to.
  2. As there will be no inflation schedule the tokenomics that need to be worked out will be done so around the time of raising liquidity.
  3. We have shown footage of our project in the proposal as well as in AMAs and are currently in closed alpha testing.

Thank you for the responses.

Approved for $50K Launch grant. Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing this built out with the first milestone for a Testnet Launch built on Harmony :tada:

“Testnet Launch” means launching a feature-complete product on Harmony Testnet. We define feature complete to include a user interface, connection to a wallet (Metamask, Harmony ONE Chrome Extension, etc.) on Testnet, and can be tested end-to-end by at least 100 users.

Funds will be released upon completing these milestones

$10K after launching a feature-complete product on our testnet
$10K after forming a DAO with 5-out-of-9 multisig with our DAOs
$10K after launching on our mainnet with audit
$10K after 1K daily active users (with launch video, full PR promotion)
$10K after 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process)

Meanwhile, to prepare receiving funds, email your identification documents to kyc@harmony.one and create a Gnosis Safe MultiSig wallet at https://multisig.harmony.one and using instructions below
