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

#MARCHintotheGenoverse—Discord Challenge Series Continues🏆

Since the last Status Report, Genovians across the globe have turned up to compete in our #MARCHintotheGenoverse Discord Challenge series.

If you haven’t heard of the challenge series yet, here’s the lowdown: Every Friday in March, we have unveiled a weekly challenge. Typically TWO or THREE lucky winners will be selected each week at random to walk away with different augment prizes.

Current Challenge: Genopets x Carv Challenge (March 25 - March 31)

This week’s challenge is slightly different than usual. We’ve partnered with Carv to offer a special edition challenge featuring a prize of 1000 GENE + 1000 ARC. 

Instead of posting a video in the weekly challenge Discord channel, you’ll follow the steps listed here. Good luck 🤞

More, More, More Is Instore!—Enjoy Increased Banking Reward Drop Rates

We increased the quantity multiplier for Banking Rewards Drop Rates. What does that mean? It means every time you receive Banking Rewards, you’re more likely to receive more Food and Toys 🌟

And just because you’re new doesn’t mean your Genopet should suffer! 

We’re also developing a Nurture starter pack feature that will allow new players to claim a set of introductory Food & Toys, which can be used to meet Nurture needs.

Who doesn’t love a good virtual closet?—Genodex Studio in development

A couple of weeks ago, we announced in Status Report #021 the development of a that will allow players to try out different Augments and color combinations on their Genopet—now you’ll know exactly what you want to Craft or buy off Magic Eden.

Check out the video below to see how far the Genopets team has come in developing this feature for our community ⬇️

There is still much to be done, but we’re so excited to put this in your hands soon!

A few other highlights:

  • WE ARE GRINDING on Augmentation. No new sneak peeks just yet, but our UI/UX and Engineering teams have been all hands on this along with the Genoverse Portal, which will allow players to bring their augments into the app. Be sure to prepare for its launch by Crafting Augments today!

  • We’re updating the baby summoning scene with W.H.I.T.T.A.K.R. 

  • Sharing is caring! When players share their steps banked on socials, they get to show off this awesome animated scene. Take a look 🙌 

  • Even infinite items need a break—A cooldown state for infinite-use items has been implemented. Though they can be used an endless amount of times, after each use of an infinite item, there is a cooldown during which the item is no longer usable. Players will be able to view an item’s cooldown information in Mainframe and the mobile app.

  • Did you notice? We changed out the alchemy module background image in Mainframe 👀

  • A clickable block explorer SOLlink has been added to Dormant Habitats to make it easier for players to restore their Habitat.

  • Magic Eden launched Magic Eden Games 🎉 Make sure to check out our Genopets page.

  • We partnered with Magic Eden at GDC this year 🤝Besides meeting some Genovians in person, we also met some other builders. Here’s a pic with Unix Gaming

  • Our COO was on the G4M3 Show 🎮  Watch it here.

  • Check out this STUNNING lore art the art team has been working on😍

  • Our art team made the cutest Irish Genopet to celebrate St. Patty’s Day 🍀 We plan on making art like this in the future for special events and holidays. Let us know if there are any you want to be featured!

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, so follow along on Discord and Twitter to stay in the loop. Till next time.
