After a weekend of heads-down coding, I’m about to release what I think it’s the first playable game using Loot. It’s called “Loot Dungeon” (I am aware there are projects with a similar name but sorry! things move so fast and I already purchased the domain).
It’s a RPG-like game and I designed it to be scary and adventurous. It goes like this: You are walking down the coastline and see a cave. To enter, you need to stake your Loot bag, and depending on the rarity, you get certain stats. You are then presented a monster (there are 6 unique monsters). Some are pretty weak and 99% of the times you will defeat them, others are really tough. Then, you can choose to either battle or escape. If you escape (by paying a fee), you get your Loot back. If you decide to fight, a D&D-inspired battle sequence starts. It looks like this:
The results of the battle depend on your stats, but also need you to be a bit lucky, as the attacks are affected by RNG (I’m using Chainlink for VRFs).
If you win the battle, you can claim the monster drops. All monsters drop a guaranteed NFT and with a 10% chance they can drop a Card NFT.
If you lose, you lose your Loot, unless you pay the Ferryman’s fee, which lets you revive and fight another day. The Ferryman’s fee will start at 0.05 ETH and increase over time.
There’s also a bonus 1-time only NFT when you escape and when you die. All NFTs are pixel art autogenerated by ML.
What do you guys think? Do you have any last minute thoughts? I have everything ready to be released (including the UI app) and just waiting for gas fees to drop a little bit (costing me over 3k USD to deploy right now ). But can tweak small details.
