Project Description

Sunflower Land (previously Sunflower Farmers) was the simple farming & crafting game which went viral over the course of 2 weeks. Players could plant crops, chop wood, mine gold and much more to gather the materials needed to craft NFTs.

We went from 100 daily players to over 50,000 and 350K Blockchain accounts.

The game was not perfect, and unfortunately it was abused by bots. We learnt a lot of lessons from our original design and have a solid implementation with off-chain data to improve the scalability and gas fee efficiency.

Our new project, Sunflower Land reaches further than the constraints of Farming. The open source community is building a MetaVerse where content creators can release their own NFTs and eventually gameplay mechanics.

We believe the MetaVerse should be shaped by the players and that is our vision we aim to achieve.

Our Discord community of 60K is patiently waiting for the release of Sunflower Land to begin exploring and building their empire.

Amount Requested

Original: 100,000 USD
Revised: 8000 USD

Milestones

Marketing is not a concern right now, our focus is on designing and building the scalable infrastructure to support the game. We already have a working front-end, game design and community ready to go!

Milestone 1 (100K) - Off-chain data, verification and anti-bot filtering. Includes resources for cloud solution architect, infrastructure costs and solidity developer/audits. 2-3 months - 50K up-front, 50K TVL until game is launched (to cover infrastructure costs)

Milestone 2 (500K approx.) - Platform to launch your own in game NFTs and features. Includes formation of legal and marketing team.

Next milestones (To determine budget).

I think this game can become really interesting in the future, because their vision is want to let people creating the game together start from the beginning.

I can’t help much right now, since I’m not a game designer nor the code writer, but I will see the opportunity once it available for me in the near future.

Salam Woo Hoo!

Been playing the (old) beta since Jul/Aug 2021 and I truly believe in the vision of the team, and how they want to evolve the game. This is without any doubt the first step into a true, working, booming Metaverse.

I am very excited about the uniqueness of the idea that anyone can release NFTs and games, and the idea of a metaverse shaped by players. I believe that it will be a front-end that will definitely grow together with the polygon chain in the future.

…definitely worth helping this team deliver and thrive on the Polygon ecosystem; their donations to charity alone exceeded $150k and the game - even though imperfect - attracted a large following in a very short time-frame.
Highly recommend approving this grant request!
