Auto battler game development on track and looking great!
Since the genesis NFT drop back in September, the Chibi Clash team has been working non-stop to deliver on our promise: creating an iconic web3 Chibi gaming universe with a high quality auto battler game at its core. Some of our initiatives have already surfaced, including our migration to Polygon, our interactive story games and most recently our rebranding and website update. However, most of our work has taken place behind the scenes, and finally we are ready to shed some light on what we’ve been working towards.
$CLASH Governance Token Fundraising
Following our NFT launch, the Chibi Clash team was invited to participate in the DeFi Alliance’s first ever web3 gaming accelerator cohort. It was around this time that a number of prominent blockchain investors approached our team with an idea: if our plans are to introduce a governance token, why not bring on board investors into the project and launch it via an IDO?
We were convinced that fundraising for the project would allow us to best achieve the most important goal for our project: add value to our collectors! Injection of capital aside, the investors and partners that we will be bringing into our ecosystem will provide us with an abundance of resources including marketing, partnerships, DeFi and operations expertise, and many more value adds that will help our project grow exponentially from where we are today.
While we are not quite ready to announce which investors and partners will be joining us yet (many conversations are still ongoing), what I can say is that there are some very exciting names that will be attached to our project in the very near future. As for the public sale, we are currently aiming for an IDO sometime in Q1 2022 - stay tuned for more details!
Benefits for Legend and Seal Holders
Speaking of tokens, we haven’t forgotten about our promised airdrops to our collectors! However, since the launch of our Seals we have realized one thing: not all our current Holders are active on our community channels, and this includes many of our biggest Chibi Holders. While we want to reward those of you who are most engaged with our project, we also don’t want to punish our long term supporters who are just passively hodling their Chibis until our game releases. With that in mind, we have decided to structure our Holder rewards in the following way:
Chibi Legend NFT Holders will be eligible to receive "passive” rewards, namely token and item NFT airdrops in the near future
Seal NFT Holders will be eligible for “active” rewards usually requiring an action from the Holder, which includes future free and exclusive mints, whitelists, and exclusive access to game-related content
Our $SHIN token smart contract are being worked on as we speak, and regarding future exclusive mints…
Our Legends aren’t the only ones that will inhabit the lands of Shintidi! After stabilizing the portal, the Emperor has left an open invitation for brave citizens to venture into the mysterious lands to assist our Legends and Champions in their journey!
The Chibi Citizens will be a new class of NFTs on the Polygon network that can be staked for rewards, along with some interesting on-chain gameplay mechanics which will be shared as soon as our smart contracts are complete. While details on the Chibi Citizen gameplay are still being finalized, one thing is certain: all Legendary Seal Holders will be able to claim a free Citizen with each Seal!
Auto Battler Game Update
And while all of the above initiatives are taking place, our core game team is still working hard on the development of our auto battler game!
An interesting development over the past month was the release of a new mobile game that our team became very fond of: Clash Mini from Supercell. Clash Mini introduces easy-to-learn and accessible gameplay to the auto chess/auto battler genre, and focuses more on troop placement and upgrades much more than synergies and economy management. Inspired by this approach, our game design team spent countless hours over these past weeks to revisit our gameplay and economy design, resulting in some revisions that we will will enhance our overall gameplay experience.
Related to this is the introduction of Chibi Champions. This topic warrants a separate post on its own, which will be shared sometime in the coming weeks. Until then, here’s another concept art teaser as a reward for having read up to this point!
We know we’ve been saying this for awhile now, but it’s worth repeating now more than ever: we can’t wait to show you what’s coming!!!
