New updates and improvements to the Genoverse

Below are some of the items the Genopets team has worked on over the past few weeks. We’re pulling back the curtain to show you, fellow Genovians, what goes into making a game.

Note: most items below, unless noted, are not final. Many things that we share in Status Reports will include early renderings, prototypes, or explorations so please keep that in mind when sharing thoughts.

Proud new parents! — Genovians summon their first baby Genopets

From the start, we designed Genopets to be free-to-play. A move-to-earn game anyone can play and turn their sweat equity into earning! We recently invited a new wave of beta testers that are meeting their baby Genopets for the first time.

For those who haven’t summoned yet, here is a sneak peek at our badass baby mint. Sign up for private beta to get on the list: 👀

Wanna know what’s cooler than that unity minting scene? The minting experience, created by our game design, UI/UX design, and dev teams, summons a baby Genopet based specifically on YOUR personality. Just like with habitat minting, your choices determine your Genopet’s attributes and rarity.

Honey, I’m home! — Habitats are app ready! 🔥

Nothing to say other than you and your Genopet will soon be able to chill out in Genesis Habitat and we hope you’re as excited as we are.

Have your cake and eat it too — Staking launched and rewards are plentiful

Staking can be complicated, but here is the TL;DR

The basic rules of the Genopet’s staking program are as follows:

  • Every staking deposit must be locked for a period of time
  • The staker can select the lock period
  • The longer the lock period, the more bonus rewards can be earned
  • GENE rewards are locked for one year by default
  • GENE rewards can be withdrawn unlocked as sGENE, which can be used in-game
  • When governance voting is enabled, the voting weight is determined by the amount of lock period left in the staking deposit

Let’s grow the Genoverse together 🤝

A few other highlights:

  • We released the first versions of our litepaper — read up on everything you could possibly want to know about game mechanics and the tokenomics of our dual token economy
  • More than 5,400 Genesis Habitats have been minted so far!
  • You wanted to be let in on all the good stuff, and we’re ready to show it to you. Check out our updated roadmap and join us on the road to KI
  • That is so fetch! — Our designers and developers have continued their hard work creating the first nurture mini-game. Check out how far they’ve come in the last few weeks. Can you tell the ball has a faint trail and is under higher gravity now?
  • New Water and Fire Habitat formations have gone through evasive mapping and 3D modeling
  • If you weren’t excited about evolving your pet before, you will be after you check out these 🔥 augments

  • Are you wondering how augments can go from the drawings you see above to the kick-ass pet you see? Here is a brief glance at the process behind the magic
  • Our dev team has been working hard to solve the background tracking issue for android phones and the overall Android experience. Our CEO Albert won’t stop until the Genopets Android experience is “really delightful to use”

As a reminder, this is just a small sample of what we’ve been up to over the past few weeks. There’s a lot more in store before open beta, so follow along on Discord and Twitter to stay in the loop. Till next time.
