Welcome to Good Earth, where the yields are great and the possibilities are endless. Collect your best party and prepare yourself, we’re going dungeon crawling — But be careful, those not prepared may find themselves in a tough spot.

We’ve been hard at work the last few weeks, and we’re excited to share some info about our project ahead of our first NFT pack release.

Next-Gen NFTs

At its core, this project is about moving towards the next generation of NFT tech as it relates to gaming. We’re building two things; dynamic NFTs and an environment for them to be utilized in. As you progress and play, your NFTs literally change and grow. Effectively you own the experience your NFTs/characters gain, they aren’t stuck in the game — they’re yours. This gives players more freedom, and gives communities the power to build their own games and applications that utilize their NFTs.

If a Mushroom Farmer offers you an apple it is extremely disrespectful to wash the dirt off or shine the apple before consuming it. If you do not want to be a great source of shame and embarrassment to the entire Mushroom Farmer community, you must eat the apple. Like a chip dipped in salsa, the apple is mostly a vessel for dirt.

Rollout/Roadmap

Kaiju Cards’ first phase will be a collectible-backed, browser-based RPG built on Solana. Think Neopets meets DeFi. Starting soon after the initial sale, we’ll be rolling out a character and item store, a trading marketplace, several dungeons complete with loot progressions, and collection contests. Over time, more and more complex features will be added, giving the player more ways to engage and progress. Non-linear strategies will thrive, and players will have to figure out what works best for them. Min/maxers rejoice.

Team

Our artists have done work for the likes of Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Netflix, Apple, and Facebook. Our dev team has worked at several high profile blockchain companies, and currently prefer to stay anonymous.

The texture of a Skeleton Warrior is more like silicon than bone. They are a little soft and a little doughy and feel good to touch.

Vision

We liked Neopets, and believe there is a lot to learn from its design. It had a simplistic yet robust world for your characters to exist in, a multitude of activities and games for your characters to participate in, a dynamic token and goods economy, and a platform for social interaction and collaboration. Sound familiar? These are just some of the ideas we are building on.

Our longer-term goals include utilization of our backend to power a standalone auto-battler RPG beyond the browser environment, and collaboration with other DeFi and NFT projects on Solana.

If in-game assets are NFTs, why couldn’t another game utilize those NFTs? The potential for low friction collaboration and cross-participation among games is vast. We believe that the very idea of partnerships and cross-over collaborations will be completely disrupted by developments in NFT tech.

We’re looking forward to sharing more about our upcoming sale and the first phase of the game soon!
