Voxies are a brand new NFT on the Ethereum blockchain that offer a combined experience of fun, cute collectibles and also a fully functioning tactical gaming experience that users can play using their Voxies.
Voxies are procedurally generated (and random) Voxel Buddies that contain a large number of different attributes and traits that make each Voxie unique and fun to collect. For example cosmetic attributes like the Voxie costumes and hats, to more fundamental attributes such as the race (Human, Robot, Fox, etc) or what job class the Voxie has. Here are some example Voxies:
More example of Voxies with different attributes and varieties can be found on the main website at https://voxies.io
The Voxies NFT is the first launch phase of the Voxiverse and represents the initial token distribution that allow players to own and stake a claim in the Voxie expanded metaverse. Over time we are planning to introduce more phases to our release and more blockchain infrastructure, giving our players more ways to own and play with their Voxies!
Voxie Tactical Gameplay
What makes the Voxies NFT unique and different from all the other NFT projects you have probably seen (collectible GIFs and static art images) is that it is connected to our tactical role playing game called Voxie Tactics. Voxie Tactics is much like a traditional RPG and tactical game concerning the main gameplay, but it is powered by blockchain technology and ownership is central to the core concepts of the game. Since Voxie Tactics is a team based tactical game, you control multiple characters in the game and each of these characters can be represented by a Voxies that you directly own as an NFT.
(Please note the following screenshots and videos contain some placeholder assets and art work, these will be changed in the full release)
Gameplay of Voxie Tactics is very reminiscent of retro RPG and tactical games such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre. We have just begun to start showing some (IN DEVELOPMENT) screenshots and videos of Voxie Tactics to give the community an idea of what they can expect when the game launches later this year.
As you can see above, battles in Voxie Tactics take the form of turn based sequences where one team is trying to achieve an objective for each battle arena (kill all enemies, survive a certain amount of turns, rescue in-danger NPCs, etc). Once the goal is achieved the battle ends and rewards are distributed.
The game also features exploration and non-battle elements; there are central hubs to the game that allow players to freely roam around and participate in non-combat activities such as purchasing new equipment for your Voxies, completing quests for villagers, changing the abilities and class of your Voxies, and more.
We get asked a lot about all the different elements of Voxie Tactics and how the game will function as Play-To-Earn, while we don’t want to reveal all the details and information about this yet, we are happy to share that players will be able to earn our native VOXELS currency and token simply by playing the game. This can be earned in a number of ways, such as during battles, or when a battle is completed. The end of battle screen shows you what rewards you acquired during the battle:
The VOXEL coin token will be initially distributed to owners of the Voxie NFT and we will detail more information about how owners can claim and stake their VOXEL tokens at a later stage.
The VOXEL token can be used directly in the game as the game’s currency (to buy items, weapons, armor, cosmetics, etc) or it can be used outside of the game much like any other blockchain currency to power the games secondary market, so players can buy/sell/trade their items and equipment from the Voxie Tactics game. The game will feature multiple ways for you to increase your Voxies NFT value, tied to the gameplay such as acquiring more powerful in-game items and equipment (weapons, armor) or even just having some rare and unique cosmetic items that are highly sought after by other members of the Voxies community to sell on the secondary markets.
We are very excited for the future of Voxies and the Voxiverse and we plan on to expanding this in many ways and adding future utility to our NFT and voxel blockchain technology. We love the community that has built up around Voxies and have so much in store for our players and Voxie owners!
We look forward to seeing you in the Voxiverse!
