Since the testnet launch in March, the team has been testing and refining all aspects of the game. Now, Mines of Dalarnia is set to launch its mainnet on 26 April 2022. Also, the third and final Mines of Dalarnia Land Sale just ended yesterday, featuring 2620 plots.
Mines of Dalarnia
The game is set in 11752 AD, where the world is under the rule of the Metagalactic Collective. There are 3 planets, Terra Prime, Terra Simia, Terra Caldera, and 1 moon, Luna Praxis. News quickly spreads that there are boundless riches being unearthed on these strange new planets, giving the impression of a utopian gold rush. Therefore, miners from all over the galaxy are now rushing to the Dalarnian sector.
This blockchain-based mining game is free to play and has a play-to-earn mechanism as well. The community can earn by being miners (players), mining plot owners, or even both. Basically, miners need to pay rent to the mining plot owners before they can start mining. With these rewards, they can then visit the marketplace to purchase resources, consumables, and equipment.
The mining game is set up in a way that both casual gamers and P2E grinders can enjoy. Casual gamers can use DAR tokens to purchase better mining equipment, instead of grinding for several hours a day.
On the other hand, landowners need to contribute to the game economy as well. All landowners need to buy Terraforming Capsules to maintain their mining plot. They need to strategically manage their plot rental and their plot upkeep cost, but do not need to spend much time on the game.
The mainnet announcement first dropped during the Miami NFT Week, and the community has been counting down ever since. Moving forward, the team will continue to work with Chromia to incorporate Layer 2 and other backend enhancements.
