Gala Games’ Town Star is officially entering the world of Play-to-Earn. The farm management game confirmed the release of the P2E gameplay this week. Basically, in-game NFTs can generate passive income through TownCoin Token Rewards from daily challenges.
Breaking Down Town Star’s Play-to-Earn Mechanics
The game is pursuing a straightforward approach in terms of the P2E mechanics. Owned in-game items will soon be eligible for the added bonus of earning daily allocations of TownCoin. Then, these placeable NFT items will earn TownCoin based on their on-chain rarity.
It is worth noting that users need to play Town Star in order to take advantage of the P2E mechanics. This is because they need to place the NFTs on their farms. Moreover, players who don’t complete the daily challenges won’t receive the daily rewards.
The game is also introducing a new player attribute, Gala Power, in order to determine each player’s ability to place NFTs in-game that are P2E Eligible. Gala Power is anchored on the amount of GALA in the user’s wallet. However, in the future, it will be more dynamic. So it will also include factors such as NFTs, account age, TownCoin holding and referrals in the Gala Power calculation.
How important is the Gala Power? Gala Power is crucial because it is a system of levels. This means that a player’s current level will be proportional to how many of their placed NFTs will be eligible for daily play-to-earn TownCoin rewards.
The Importance of Playing the Game
In the statement released by the team, they reiterated the importance of playing the game in order to participate in the play-to-earn opportunities. “This is a play-to-earn game and not a mining operation; you will absolutely and always be expected to play the game in order to earn your daily rewards.”
The team will be introducing a series of Town Star Daily Challenges. The first ones will be very straightforward just to get the ball rolling. For example, players should gather X amount of Star Points in 24 hours. However, the team promises that the challenges will eventually evolve and level up in terms of difficulty.
Ultimately, completion of the challenges doubles as the gatekeeper to the TownCoin rewards of the players.
P2E Execution Plan
For the early access launch, every player will be able to experience Town Star P2E for free. However, Season Passes will be added immediately after the Beta launch period.
Admittedly, the team is still in the process of determining the exact length of each Town Star Season. What they are guaranteeing at this point is that purchasing a Season Pass will be priced reasonably. They explained that “a small relative cost is a very necessary piece of this puzzle to avoid player opportunities for abuse and exploitation.”
Just like all NFTs, a percentage of Season Passes will always be distributed to node operators, even before they are available for purchase.
Everything is in place, so early access for Town Star P2E will begin next Tuesday, October 5th. When the new weekly competition begins, all players will be able to view their Gala Power. Then, they can accomplish daily challenges and receive daily distributions of TownCoin for placing NFTs.
