Product Launch

Proposal overview

Wonder Game is a collaborative DeFi game that takes players into a cross-chain rabbit hole. An experience that will immerse the members with exciting new gameplay, lore, and quests every new chapter. The ecosystem will use DAO, NFT, DeFi, and interoperability, to allow members to explore, own, participate, govern, and create the adventure.

The gameplay revolves around connecting different communities and encourages the player community to work together while strategically competing with one another.

Interoperability

We are using ICON Bridge to connect Harmony and ICON, cross-chain from Day 1. Using the bridge, members will be able to mint NFTs on Harmony with ICX or ONE on May 14th, 2022. We are expecting at least 500+ ICON members to onboard and connect with the Harmony community through Wonder Game. The rabbit hole to every new chain will allow the players to upgrade their Character NFT and explore the new chain and chapter with new goals.

Chapter One - Gameplay

Chapter One plays a vital role in creating a community-first environment as it is heavily focused on community building. The game mechanics reward collaboration and social interaction, incentivizing a place for players to work together. There are six main mechanics connected to the economy: strategic exploration, player enhancement, crafting, guilds, quests, and DAO quests. The first launch will include strategic exploration and player enhancement. Crafting, guilds, quests, and DAO quests will be included in the later phases.

Phase 1 revolves around the strategic staking and yield game. Each character - Queen, Alice, and Cards have their own way of getting the SHROOM. Card Soldiers explore and camp to find the magical power β€” aka Surge Zone. Queens tax the Card Soldiers on how many SHROOM Soldiers have accumulated in their sector. Alices steal from the Card Soldiers when they are on the way to pay their SHROOM tax to the Queens.

You will have to use your best strategy to earn the highest SHROOMs - we recommend collaborating with a couple of your fellow community members.

Out of the total 20,000 NFTs β€” 75% will be Cards, 12.5% Queens, and 12.5% Alices. 10,000 NFTs will be available for the initial sale, the rest will be earnable in-game through Cheshire Cat’s Portal.

More details on gameplay and economy is in our Whitepaper.

SHROOM

The SHROOM token is the main token and the source of magical power in Wonder Game. SHROOMs allow you to enter, own, use, participate and govern Wonder Game. It’s used in the marketplace, for DAO governance voting, upgrading NFT stats, crafting items, single staking, farming, and for future DeFi use cases.

We are currently allowing our members to delegate ONE to our validator node - Rabbit Hole, which gives them SHROOMs as rewards that will be airdropped when the game starts.

For tokenomics please check the SHROOM section in our whitepaper.

NFT Art & Experience

There will be 650+ high-quality attributes in the Character NFT. By owning the NFT, the holder owns the underlying artwork and all of its Intellectual Property. Character NFTs play a role in the Chapter One gameplay and in the future Chapters.

We really value high-quality experience for our community members - we will be working on branding, user experience through sounds, UX, art, and game experience and will have the best community success team.

Team

The project is built in partnership with the ICONOsphere & GangstaBet team. Our team has built several projects in the ICON ecosystem in collaboration with ICONOsphere, including but not limited to:

  1. Core developers of Balanced Network, OMM Finance, Bridge.
  2. Supported building GangstaBet NFT Collectible (Blue-chip on ICON)
  3. Running ICON Testnet Node
  4. Payment Gateway: Developed payment gateways for clients to receive their IRC-2 tokens
  5. ICON Contribution Proposal System
  6. Part of ICON Bridge development to connect ICON and Harmony
  7. Open Dev ICON contract library

The core team has experience in building NFT projects on ICON, Ethereum & Polygon blockchain, and we would like to take that to the next level with Wonder Game in Harmony.

Justification

Wonder Game has been and will be interoperability first, community first, and innovation first ecosystem. Our cross-chain minting demonstrates all of these in one. We will be pushing even more to reach our vision - a digital nation where players collaborate, learn from each other, earn, and have fun.

Update: We postponed our pre-sale launch date due to the market condition - we will announce the new date this coming week. We will also change the way we will price NFT for the minting because the previous mint price pegged to USD (to discourage arbitrage) wouldn’t work during current conditions. Hopefully as the market stabilizes - we will be releasing a new mint date this coming week.
