Blockchain infrastructure platform, Chromia today, April 26, announced the launch of the blockchain adventure game, Mines of Dalarnia (MoD). Launched in collaboration with video game developer, WorkinMan Interactive, MoD is a free-to-play, play-to-earn mining game. It is based on the Binance BNB chain.
“Blockchain presents the gaming world with an opportunity to compensate players for the time and effort that they put into playing games,” said Keith McCullough, COO of WorkinMan Interactive. “It’s a chance for people to be financially rewarded for doing things they enjoy. We’re so happy to present the Mines of Dalarnia community with the ability to earn rewards while they play a game that they love.”
Mines Of Dalarnia: The gameplay explained
An action-adventure game, Mines Of Dalarnia brings together combat and dungeon crawling under a single roof. To explain, players have to mine for resources and combine various in-game items in the intergalactic universe. Then, they can improve their skills to fight enemies and find rare relics and artefacts.
Once you join the game, you can either become a miner or a LAND owner. The former’s role is to mine for resources and improve their equipment. Alternatively, miners can also sell the resources to other players or use them to craft cosmetics, consumables, weapons, and other equipment.
They can also craft “Terraforming Capsule”, which the LAND owners will purchase to take care of their plots. Crafting and upgrading equipment is essential to increase the players’ power level.
The Mines Of Dalarnia universe is made up of a range of planets, each divided into a 40 x 40 grid of LAND plots. Now, LAND owners, as the name suggests, own various unique, in-game land plots. They can rent their LAND to miners in exchange for $DAR, the game’s utility token. This way, LAND owners can generate a virtual real estate income. Besides, they can also mine resources on their own land for free.
According to its roadmap, Mines Of Dalarnia will launch its in-game marketplace in Q2 2022. Then, a mobile app, competitive game modes, and token rewards will follow in Q3.
Let the numbers do the talking!
Already, in its pre-launch phase, Mines Of Dalarnia attained over 90,000 monthly registered players. Reportedly, last year alone, players took part in 600,000 mining sessions. Moreover, the secondary market sales of LAND plots have crossed $1 million.
During the mainnet launch, the MoD will also give away hundreds of NFTs and $40,000 worth of $DAR to its testnet players. After all, the game’s 200,000-strong community members have been eagerly awaiting MoD’s launch!
