Orbiter 8 by Partavate Studios
Partavate Studios is crafting a unique decentralized game, Orbiter 8. In Janurary 2022, we released a feature rich milestone demo of Orbiter 8 to four networks. We propose porting Orbiter 8 Demo 3 to the Harmony One network.
Demo 3 Features:
Massively Multiplayer On-Chain Virtual World: Our world dynamically generates as gamers move to the edge of the map. Their turns pay for world creation, democratizing the cost of world generation.
New Galactic Trade System: Move between space ports trading goods to earn in game currency that can be used to upgrade your ships and planets.
New Galactic Chat: Use the networks broadcast mechanism to send in-game chat messages to other users anywhere in the galaxy.
New Upgrade Systems: Orbiter 8 spacecrafts can now be upgraded with new holds. Planets can be upgraded to add space stations.
Earn Passive Revenue: Earn passive credits while you’re offline as gamers trade at your space port.
Unstoppable code: We embrace the idea of “unstoppable code.” Orbiter 8 requires no centralized services, thus it should still be playable in thousands of years, so long as the network is up and running.
Play On The Go: Play Orbiter 8 on your portable device thanks to the new mobile-friend UI design.
Trade Tokenized Assets: Ships and planets are ERC721 non-fungible tokens with all relevant meta data stored on-chain. Orbiter 8’s in-game currency is an ERC20 token. All tokens can be traded on open exchanges.
Network Mobility: Play across a variety of EVM compatible netowrks, hopefully soon to include Harmony!
“Demo 3” - our third of our four planned public milestone demos - is complete, public facing, and can be played today on any of the 4 networks we currently support.
Demo 3 is running on Ethereum’s Rinkeby and Ropsten test networks as well as Polygon’s Mumbai network and Binance’s test network.
Demo 3 is not currently available on Harmony.
We current have around 40+ registered gamer avatars and and 58 members in our Discord. We would like to see 100+ users when we release Demo 3 on Harmomy.
We are initially applying for $20k in grants:
- $10k to release Demo 3 with all features to Harmony test net
- $10k to audit our contracts and release Demo 3 to Harmony Main
(note: Demo 3 is a stand alone release and we can not guarantee that assets will be transferable to future demo releases)
1: Update Orbiter 8 client to be Harmony Aware
2: Release Orbiter 8 Demo 3 contracts to Harmony Test Net
3: Have Orbiter 8 contracts audited by 3rd party
4: Address any audit concerns
5: Release Demo 3 to Harmony Main Net
To release Demo 3, we have all of the talent we need.
Support in raising awareness of Demo 3 through community promotion would be very valuable to us.

We hope to achieve a minimum of 100 players on Harmony’s test network. Our goal is to provide users with an enjoyable gaming experience. While Orbiter 8 has earning potential due to tokenized assets, we consider providing our users with fun and joy to be our primary metrics for success.
