Inspired by ageless classics such as Pokemon and Neopets — Pixl Pets is a decentralized Play and Earn blockchain game that takes place within the Pixelverse, a vast land inhabited by adorable yet feisty creatures known as Pixl Pets a land that they call home alongside you their companions.
Nobody knows the true origins of these mystical little creatures, but it is widely believed Pixl Pets were formed as a by-product of ‘the Glitch’ a mysterious cosmic event that created the Pixlverse as we know it.
Many researchers have made it their life’s work to understand exactly what happened during ‘the Glitch’ but it is a secret that eludes them to this day … what they did find from their expeditions were multiple caches of mysterious unhatched eggs that have been incubated and intensively studied ever since they were discovered.
The time has come for them to hatch.
The emerging Play and Earn genre is defined by the ability for Game Developers to leverage Crypto & NFTs to directly reward Players for spending time in their ecosystem. However, these new forms of reward do not and cannot replace the fun of well crafted original game-loops. We believe that sustainable Play and Earn models are a product of FUN games and active ecosystems that utilize P&E rewards in two primary ways:
- As supplementary value to the social and entertainment value provided by gameplay
- As core to the gameplay experience and decision-making
Examples of the latter point:
A risk-on game mode such as Hardcore PvP where additional rewards are available to the victor but Players risk the loss of a currency or their NFTs.
Limited Run Dungeons with exclusive rewards an additional challenges but $PIXL is lost on death.
The other most sustainable method for dispensing rewards is on a meritocratic basis, namely to the dedicated high achievers in Tournaments and Ranked Match Making.
Another theme of blockchain technology is bringing people together in a more real way than ever. We want Players to journey and make decisions and take risks together. Be that as a small friend group, or a massive Guild. We believe that 'Players play together' and Pixl Pets is designed to be an extention of the social experience of the Pixlverse Open World. We are committed to developing and emphasising multiplayer game-modes and co-operative decision making for the lifespan of the entire ecosystem.
