DinoX proposal/temperature check

1. Give us a description of your project.

Multiplayer Metaverse Game
DinoX is a combat and strategy game in a sandbox environment. A beloved gameplay genre blended with a fan-favorite theme of dinosaurs.

Players build dino kingdoms, rally resources to expand, build combative skills to occupy others, and due to the benefits of the metaverse, retain true ownership of the game.

Casual Gamers
Casual gaming exceeds professional gaming, and is comprised of a global multi-billion dollar market.

DinoX creates a familiar childhood theme of dinosaurs into an exciting and adventurous world. The game is playable without any crypto knowledge and is designed for casual gaming from the ground-up.

Crypto Investors
The metaverse is a fertile ground for speculation and investment in a new era of digital assets.

DinoX is pushing the metaverse forward by combining it with gaming, thereby making the massive micro-transaction market in gaming be a source of earnings to metaverse participants.

  1. Why is your project important or relevant to LaunchX?

DinoX is relevant because it would be one of the first projects launched on LaunchX and the first play-to-earn game launched on LaunchX, giving the LaunchX community early access to starting their dinosaur adventure and giving the option to start playing, and earning.

3. What are your tokenomics?

5. Provide us with a brief description of your go-to-market strategy.

DinoX’s go to market strategy is based on giving players rewards as early as possible to drive engagement. The rewards are going to be mostly wrapped around dinos themselves and utilities for them. This way it can bring users into the ecosystem very easily as we emphasize the play-to-earn model.

After the public sale and launch of the project, DinoX will gradually bring in all the features of the game itself, the first being available during launch.

The first phase - the standard environment for dinos will be available, i.e. an Earth-like setting.

The second phase - new environments and “worlds” shall be added, such as an underwater world, sky world, martian world, etc. The development of future environments shall be influenced by the community through governance and popularity preference.

The team will be communicating with the community to receive feedback, inspiration and preference as to which game development aspect to explore further.

6. What is the product roadmap?

DinoX whitepaper – page 6/21

7. Where is the project at in terms of production milestones?

We have the first generation of dinos ready to be distributed to users and players who stake DNXC through our staking portal once we launch. We also have various special dinosaurs which will be sold and auctioned soon alongside with special in-game items, accessories, land, etc. With that, we have few features of the project ecosystem ready on day one for the public. The game itself is in full production and we are on the right track in comparison to the roadmap and planning with expected launch of the closed alpha version around the end of August / early September. As our dinosaurs will have skills and these skills are in the form of erc1155 tokens on Polygon, we have already prepared some of them too and our balancing team is making sure it will be fun using these skills and action cards in battles within the game. We are currently finishing staking, which will utilize some nice technical features and we will be announcing and explaining those soon too.

And if I understood it right, the first release of the token from the Team/Advisors is 6 months ?

Looking forward to playing your game

That’s a tough question to answer.
Obviously, Axie Infinity has a first mover advantage that they can build upon but we are here to innovate and introduce very fun gameplay alongside enhanced play to earn model which is also focused and designed in a sustainable way for long term growth.

Essentially, only time will tell which game do people like more but we will do everything we can to build a project that is successful in the long run.

Yes, that is correct, it is 25% released every 6 months following sale (4 transfers).
So there are no tokens for team or advisory for first 6 months after public sale.

Any alpha/beta version to showcase the Game Mechanics?
How would you describe the differences between DinoX and Axie - (i.e. similar ideas around egg hatching, collecting resources, and battling)?
What would you say is your competitive edge?

My rationale for asking:
While Gaming NFTs are hot in the market right now - e.g. Axie (196X of launch) and FEAR (16X of launch), the Games have to be fun/interesting in the first place. In contrast, Blockchain Cuties (BCUG) with its poor game design - practically Neopets in the 1990-2000s, is only doing 0.41X of IDO price. The numbers don’t lie.

The idea of DinoX is that we didn’t put the blockchain / crypto on the highest priority and instead we chose to get on board many senior and expert game designers in gaming industry to prepare as a fun, enjoyable and well-balanced game as possible. We will be showing in-game videos and we will release few introduction articles about the game in next few days so community can learn about mechanics and features step by step. “Hatching”, “Collecting resources”, and “Battling” are very general labels for features in the game and you can find them all over the gaming market even besides blockchain gaming market. In the end it comes to a specific implementation and designs of those features. We will differ in all of these aspects. For example, one of the strongest ones that will be different in every detail is the battling mechanic. But for this and for all other features just stay tuned for explanatory articles in the following days.
