Afar is a metaverse full of fun and adventures for you to explore the universe, compete and make friends. The game’s story takes place in a distant galaxy where a group of brave heroes compete  in a galactic tournament that rewards the winning AFARian.

What is Afar ? 

Afar was developed by Lava Labs with the goal of unifying blockchain games through fun in-game features for gamers by creating games that appeal to both traditional video game players and blockchain gamers. The vision of the project team, which aims to create a sustainable long-term ecosystem by blending the basics of Web 3.0 with traditional gaming: to create a WEB 3.0 platform that preserves the principles they have set in more than one game.

Within the Afar universe, there are 4 games called Afar games. These are; 

  • AFAR: PvP Game

It is a “level-based platform shooter game” in which players race, shoot and platform over rounds collecting points while racing to the finish line. When the rounds are over, the player with the highest total score wins.

  • AFAR: Mining Game 

It is a Build-to-Win blockchain-based mining game in which players use mining mechanics and upgrade systems to earn resource and NFT rewards.

  • AFAR: Spaceship Game 

It is a trading-based game in which players transport resources and travel through the universe to build their space merchant empire.

  • AFAR: Social Hub

It acts as a link between games in the AFAR universe.

The game developers plan to release these games, respectively, as the Afar ecosystem develops.

Overview

The Planet

If we examine the Planet Afar, the area where the Mining Game takes place and the Social Hub Planet it is positioned in the center. There are also two types of land on the planet. These are ; AFAR land and Resource land. The Mining Game can be played on both types of land. As players explore the planet, they can purchase a limited amount of NFT Resource Land plots, as well as build mining camps to harvest the Planet’s resources. 

Torus and the Marketplace revolve around the Planet where the PvP Game and the Spaceship Game take place.

Torus is a huge spaceship in which the AFAR PvP Game takes place. The Torus can host different levels. Additionally, Torus uses Social Hub teleport pads for the pre-game and post-game room. 

The Marketplace is where trade and space commerce take place.

AFAR: The PvP Game takes place on the Torus, a huge spaceship designed to host competitions. Players will race 4 laps to the finish line, platforming and hitting other players. After playing all 4 rounds, the players with the highest total Victory Points will win. Earning more victory points from opponents will earn players XP, increase season pass levels, and earn rewards.

AFAR: Mining Game

The Mining Game is a base defense game in which players can build buildings to collect resources from the Planet. Resources are used to create defenses to protect Mining Camps from attacks.

All mining operations are conducted on the Planet, where players build Mining Camps on the Resource Terrain or AFAR Terrain. Players will earn XP by mining resources, which will allow them to earn cosmetics and other rewards from the Season Pass.

Resources are needed to upgrade and optimize Mining Camps. Better players can increase the rate of mining resources and earning XP. Players will also have to pay money to build defenses for their camp to fend off any attacks and continue mining.

AFAR: Social Hub

Seasons, new content, gameplay and events in AFAR are of fixed time length. Each Season comes with its own Season Pass. Special events will be held at the beginning and end of the season.

Players can earn XP by participating in special events. As players unlock levels with each season pass, scarce NFT items and rewards can be claimed.

The rewards received from the Season Passes will consist of:

  • Eggs
  • $ coin
  • Cosmetics
  • Special products

Tokenomics

The $TOKEN forms the basis of the single token model for governance within the AFAR Metaverse. The $TOKEN has a total supply of 1,000,000,000 and is the ERC-20 token. 

The game developers did not want to use the $TOKEN only as an in-game token. They have created a model in which players can have the right to vote on important decisions for the Social Center and Treasury management by staking.

Within the game, the $TOKEN can be used to build, upgrade, unlock Eggs, and purchase Season Tickets.

Management

  • Voting for improvements in the Social Hub
  • Voting game feature prioritization
  • Voting for the AFAR ecosystem fund

$TOKEN as In-Game Currency is more than a governance token, it is essential for all activities within the ecosystem. 

$TOKEN can be used for:

  • Management of the AFAR Social Center
  • Building and Maintaining Buildings in the Social Center
  • Buy and Sell Cosmetics
  • Purchase the AFAR Season Pass
  • Some upgrades can only be purchased with $TOKEN
  • Buying Unopened Eggs from Market
  • Paying for upgrades

Staking

  • Individual Staking for Prizes and Special drops
  • Staking with Guilds or DAOs
  • Launching Guilds or DAOs in AFAR – (Requires Resource Land)
