ONE Desert: a WebXR NFT game in the Blue Metaverse

Name of Project

ONE Desert: a WebXR NFT game in the Blue Metaverse

Proposal overview

We are creating a WebXR (browser-based) multiplayer NFT game about “A Battle In ONE Desert” where Blue Apes are battling and searching for treasures. This is an easy-to-drop-in web-based FPS + scavenger hunt game. When a player clicks on a URL in the desktop web browser (e.g., Chrome), they enter the battlefield in the ONE Desert. While in game, players can communicate to each other through a spatial voice chat or through text-based chats.

Each battle is about a 5-min duration to determine a winner. Game winners are awarded with tokens as experience points and NFTs that unlock wearables, special abilities (like flying), and access to boss fights. There will also be special treasure NFTs granting the access of editing the desert world into a new battlefield. Players will also be rewarded extra when submitting answers of riddles in 1Wallet.

Team members:

Edison Lee, @skvll, storytelling, game design, 3D characters/scenes/props
Jackie Lee, @jackie, WebXR stack, Solidity

Proposal ask

$50k

$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)

Metrics for success

  1. demonstrating how NFTs (on both ETH mainnet and Harmony as L2) can be used as core game components as player’s avatars (Blue Apes), wearables, abilities, and access to experimental features such as world editing in web-based 3D environments (WebXR).
  2. launching NFT integration on Harmony testnet on the week of April 11th, 2022.
  3. building a Discord community of 1000+ players, game devs, and web3 devs in 3-5 weeks after launching on Harmony mainnet.

desktop works better for 3D environments. mobile browsers may not work at the moment.

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:
