Cukies World – Animal Crossing type Play-and-Earn game

Hi there! I’m glad to be the first one posting in the newly created Gaming section. This is Jon, one of the founders of Cukies World.

We are taking part in Polygon Hackathon, and would love to share about our project with Polygon community to engage with them and get their feedback and suggestions about our project.

We are introducing about Cukies World in this topic. Any comments are more than welcome!

Project Name: Cukies World
Project Track: GameFi

Team Member(s):

We are 20+ teammates with wide experience in different areas related to gaming, such as but not limited to: art design, illustration, animation, music & sound effects, modeling, p2e economy and game development.

Part of the team is dedicated to full stack and blockchain development, taking care of the smart contracts and how they interact with our marketplace and staking platform.

Project Goal:

We noticed that most play-to-earn games are focused on PVP modes, and Cukies World is essentially the opposite.

Our main inspiration is Animal Crossing game. We decided to create the infinite archipelago: an open world that gamers can explore at their own pace, building their own space and discovering something new every day.

We aim to make Cukies World a family friendly game, where users can chill, meet new friends and cooperate with them to complete different missions and share some rewards.

Eventually players will be able to compete with others, but we will keep the essence of Cukies World, making this happen in friendly and funny mini-games.

Project Details:

The Infinite Archipelago

Cukies World is a Play-and-Earn game where each player will control a Cuki: an NFT representing the games’ main character.

Players can explore the infinite archipelago, collect resources, build new tools, craft special gems, learn new skills… the possibilities are endless!

Meet the Cukies

There are only 12,000 1st Generation Cukies, which have already been minted by our community (2,700+ holders). We call them the Original Cukies.

Cukies have 2 status bars that represent how they are feeling: energy and health.

Cukies’ health will decrease as they play, and they will need to eat something to refill the bar again.

Cukies’ energy will be used to accept different missions and tasks, and Cukies will need to take some rest in order to recover their energy before they can continue playing.

As you play with your Cuki and complete new missions, you will unlock different mechanics and your Cukies’ experience will increase, allowing them to improve their skills. All Cukies have 5 different skills that they can improve: miner, engineer, gatherer, farmer and scout.

There are 6 different types of Cukies, based on their rarity: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Goat. The rarer the Cuki, the more energy and health he will have, and the more skills he will be able to improve.

Original Cukies have also the ability to breed up to 5 new baby Cukies, that once they grow up, will also be able to play, improve their skills, breed and build their own story.

Enjoy & Earn

Cukies World is a Play-and-Earn game, where you can play at your own pace, with no stress. You can slowly work on the island where your Cuki lives, to improve it and make it look exactly as you would like, similar to games such as Animal Crossing.

As you progress you will be able to perform different missions and tasks and earn Gem Dust (GEMD), the internal token of the ecosystem, that you can use to progress faster, but that you will also be able to swap for real money.

Islands

For the creation of the islands, we are using procedural generation, which makes each island different, as their design and biome is created randomly based on our algorithms.

On the one hand, this offers players a better gaming experience by providing almost infinite exploration possibilities as well as unlimited gameplay, and on the other hand, it provides the possibility of creating a large number of unique and customizable worlds. Each island will be unique depending on its geographical characteristics, its location on the map and the number of resources it has.

This concept of uniqueness led us to think about the idea that each island could be an NFT in the future and, as such, has its own business logic.

As in the real world, a fertile island, with crops and infrastructure, will not have the same value as a land without care and over-exploited.

We are working on some innovative ideas for island NFTs, stay tuned!

UKI – Governance token

We wanted that our token holders could feel part of Cukies World, that’s why we worked on a tokenomics model where holding UKI token is pretty similar to having some shares of the company.

UKI token is deeply integrated in Cukies World ecosystem, and it will be required to perform vital in-game actions: players will need UKI to breed, to improve Cukies skills, and to craft new gems.

40% of all UKI tokens used in-game will go to a reward pool. As a UKI holder, users can stake their tokens and get these rewards, vote on key governance decisions and treasury management, ultimately decentralizing the game economy.

As the game community grows with new players, the rewards for UKI holders will also grow.

In-Game scholarship system

Making the game accessible to people with low economic resources is one of our main goals, and that’s why we have dedicated countless hours to design a safe, fair and intuitive scholarship model.

Simply put, this is how everything will work:

Cukies’ holders willing to lend their NFTs will be able to select the % they are willing to share to the scholar, and the in-game experience they require to use their Cuki.

On the other hand, scholars will be able to navigate all the Cukies available to play, and select the one that fits better their needs. As they play they will gain more in-game experience, allowing them to get access to better Cukies and conditions as they improve their gaming experience in Cukies World.

All this will be managed within the game, so our users don’t have to worry about anything.

Cooperative game mode

As much as you may like playing alone, sometimes you want to chill with your friends. Get ready to create a team of Cukies with different skills to perform missions and challenges that a single Cuki couldn’t face!

This game mode is under development, and scheduled for late 2022.

Skins & Emotes

We know how much gamers love to customize their characters. This is what skins & emotes is about. Users will be able to change their Cukies’ appearance completely, making them look unique!

pico

There will be tons of different skins, that users will be able to get in many different ways:

  • As a reward for doing some tasks
  • As a reward for winning a competition
  • Find them in hidden areas of the map
  • Taking part in thematic events
  • As part of a secondary mission
  • Buying them with UKI or GEMD tokens

Skins will also be NFTs that can be traded in the marketplace(s).

Fully Functional Dashboard – Marketplace, Staking, and more

We have already released a fully functional platform where users can connect their Tron wallet to see the Cukies they have and use them in many ways:

Marketplace

Since we released the marketplace users have made trades valued on $250k+ USD worth of TRX. We have added several sort and filter options, so users can easily find exactly what they are looking for.

The marketplace will not be used only for Cukies, but it will allow users to trade resources, gems, skins and most of the stuff from the game.

Please note that Original Cukies owners will get granted access to UKI token private sale.

NFT Staking

As a way to reward our early supporters, we have enabled the NFT staking, where users can stake their Original Cukies and receive Cuki Points.

These Cuki Points will be used for many things in the near future, such as but not limited to:

  • Buy skins, emotes and tools
  • Get discounts for merchandising
  • Swap them for resources
  • Get access to special events
  • and much more!

Free Breed

We have developed a breeding platform where users can use their Original Cukies and their Cuki Points to breed a baby Cuki, totally free.

Tron – BSC Bridge

We want to make it as simple as possible for users to play our game, that’s why Cukies World is working to be multichain. We have already created a bridge for NFTs between Tron and Binance Chain, and of course, we are in the process to be available in Polygon shortly!

Project Milestones:

There are several things that we have achieved so far:

  • All 1st Gen NFTs (12,000) have been minted by our community (2,700+ holders).

  • We have developed a staking platform where users can stake their NFTs to earn Cuki Points.

  • To reward our early supporters, we developed a breeding platform where users can use their Original Cukies and their Cuki Points to breed a baby Cuki.

  • We have developed our own marketplace for Cukies NFTs, that will be used for in-game resources also once the game is launched.

  • Our team has grown to 20+ people now.

  • We have created a bridge for NFTs between Tron and Binance Chain, that will allow us to reach more users that will be able to play games in Tron.

  • We know how important the game lore is for gamers, and we are proud of the story we are building around Cukies World. [Click here to watch the first video about Cukies’ story] (🌴CUKIES WORLD🌴 THE PURPOSE - YouTube)

  • We have already released an alpha demo version for PC so users can have a taste of how the game development is going.
