DevLog 24: Earth Day Special, Vroom Vroom
This Week at Realm
TGIF — it’s DevLog time! This week has been packed with new partnerships and announcements, so let’s dive right in.
Of course we had all of our usual weekly traditions, including Tester Tuesday, our Bi-Weekly Newsletter (which you can read here!), the Wednesday Founders AMA, and our weekly Realm Quiz on Thursday. Our next Realm Quiz will be this upcoming Thursday on Telegram — don’t forget to join for a chance to win some $REALM!
This week we also had some special partnership and event announcements. On Tuesday we announced that we will be integrating Ready Player Me avatars into Realm so players can customise their looks and enter Realm in style! Following that announcement, we also introduced our new partner, subversive fashion brand Imitation of Christ, who recently released their genesis NFT collection. We will have more announcements and giveaways with IOC very soon, so stay tuned for a chance to win! Speaking of winning — yesterday marked the beginning of our AR Portal Contest, which gives Alpha Testers the chance to win land and $REALM! The contest will run for three weeks, so be sure you read all of the rules here and submit your entries.
Finally, today marks the beginning of the Grand Opening of our partner Brokoli Network’s Green NFT Store in London! The Grand Opening runs from today until Sunday, and it will have live music performances, sustainable clothing, free drinks, and panel discussions — including an appearance from Realm on a panel tomorrow! Keep up with us on social media over the weekend to stay up-to-date with the event.
Now onto the dev logs…
Today is Earth Day, so we are bringing you four new unique seeds that will be an integral part of the regenerative cycle of life in Realm. First we would like to introduce Halcyon, the euphoric gold seed. Halycon will grow a tree full of delicious, serotonin-boosting fruit that will help your Realmies chill out and relax!
Next, we are introducing our first hybrid seed: Lava. This dark red seed is a combination of Grenadine, the fire seed from the Crimson district, and Viridian, the earth seed. Lava’s fruit will imbue your Realmies with the strength of the Earth and the passion of Fire!
Third we are introducing another hybrid seed: Ether. This glowing purple seed is a combination of Amaranth (vitality) and Heliotrope (wind), and it will provide your Realmie with clarity and other interdimensional abilities…
Finally, we are introducing a coffee seed — that’s right, we can’t live without coffee, even in the metaverse! Naturally, the coffee seed will help you and your little Realmie sustain energy and run faster as you traverse your realms. The coffee seeds will also be an important link to our real-life reforestation efforts — read more about them in the NFTree section below.
We can’t wait to see all of the seeds you will collect and plant in Realm, and who knows, maybe you will cross-breed them to create something entirely new!
As you know, today is Earth Day and the first day of Brokoli Network’s Grand Opening for their Green NFT Store in London. A key part of Realm’s partnership with Brokoli is our promise to create a more sustainable world through mirroring metaverse tree planting in real life. The coffee seed introduced above will grow into a mature tree in four stages: sapling, fully grown, fruiting, and end of life. Next week we will be announcing a very special staking pool with Brokoli, through which we will distribute NFT versions of these trees (NFTrees), rewarding those of you who stake the longest. The longer you stake, the better your tree will be, and also the more real trees we will plant on your behalf! We are always looking for new ways to gamify sustainability and engage our communities in a way that is environmentally-conscious, so keep an eye out for a chance to land your spot in the staking pool!
Vroom Vroom — NitroX
We are thrilled to show off these new cars racing on our tracks from our friends at NitroX. These NFT cars are a part of their inter-metaverse, play-to-earn racing games! We are excited to welcome them into Realm, and to race their cars on our roads! This is a brand new partnership, and we will continue to reveal the full extent of our collaboration!
That’s all for now — take some time this weekend to enjoy some fresh air and celebrate the home planet we call Earth!
