Project Description

A gameplay focused, fully community DAO controlled metaverse

What is the problem?

  • NFT utility still relies on product development from game studios
  • Many current crypto games are static, repetitive and not engaging
  • However, full decentralisation & trustless ideologies don’t always guarantee enjoyment and safety for all users

What is the solution?
The Sneaky Squirrels Forest

  • Truly give control of asset utility upkeep, game development & more to the community allowing the platform to outlive one governing body
  • Consistent high-quality additions and updates with community made submissions and governing DAO votes
  • Internal council to shortlist & initially develop submissions to maintain high-quality games & community safety

Who is the user?

  • Gamers first but also play to earners
  • Both competitive & casual players
  • Recently adopting crypto users
  • Game asset collectors

How does it fit in the market?

  • This model fits the current and evolving crypto gaming market as it provides ownership to the communities who are already deeming real decentralisation necessary
  • It also fits the future of NFT/crypto gaming as it will be the first platform where regular (non crypto) gamers can see a problem and that it has actually been solved

What are the core challenges?
*Building a like-minded group of talented, hard working and ambitious team members to complete the first iteration of the product
*Transitioning into a fully trustless system while maintaining a high-quality product
*Staying ahead of the adoption curve

Amount requested
50,000 USD


  1. Concept Fulfilment:
    The team will design, model and animate key individual areas of the forest and 3D assets, 7 to be ready for use in game development.

Budget: 20,000 USDC

  1. Ecosystem Development
    Being a Play to Earn game, this means many aspects of the game rely on a strong and reliable ecosystem.
    This may include:
  • ETH/MATIC NFT Bridge of our own to onboard as many users across both of the two layer solutions, possible asset trading systems.
  • Careful smart contract contract development & deployment for tokens, NFTs and staking that allows for potential future branch extensions for ecosystem and game Play to Earn functions.

Budget: 30,000 USDC

Any remaining budget will be used for game development including one minigame for public evaluation before our inevitable token launch.


Been following this project for awhile and I love the team/vision, Good luck!

Unfortunately, the team has reviewed this project and we have made the decision of not awarding the grant at this stage.

Thank you again for thinking of Polygon and I wish you the best for this project.

Kind regards,
