Project Test Instructions:
Connect your Tronlink wallet
Select how you will play the game.
If you have a Tron Bull Club NFT in this wallet, the NFTs will graphically display on your screen. Just select which NFT you would like to play with. If you do not have an NFT, you can select “Practice” and play the game.
You are now ready to play with your 3D game playable NFT.
If you are playing with the Android mobile app. You can create an account on Apexgo.io and use the web3 pin that Apexgo provides in order to play with your NFTs using the Android app. The web3 pin allows us to confirm ownership of the NFT without requiring the gamer to log into their wallet. This is both for ease-of-use and for security.
Our team wanted to build a platform that brings web3 gaming to the Tron blockchain. The Tron blockchain was our preferred choice as it offers fast and inexpensive transactions that are required for building a gaming protocol. We feel that we can be a big part in making Tron a gaming hub.
TronVerse is building a gaming ecosystem that will focus on delivering fun gameplay. Most crypto games have taken a different approach and have focused on web3 components while ignoring the importance of assuring that the games are fun, addictive, and exciting. This is why most web3 games so far have failed. We want to introduce web2 gamers to fun games first, and once they are hooked, we will educate them on the benefits of the web3 components that will reshape the gaming industry in the years to come.
TronVerse is being built in phases. We initially built an arena for desktop where Tron Bull Club NFT owner can log in with their specific NFT and play a score-based game using their 3D game playable character. At the end of the round, the players on the leaderboard split a pot that is comprised of tokens. This version got 20k games played in the first month.
A mobile Android version was then released where players can do exactly the same as the desktop counterpart. They are able to log into their account by using a web3 pin system we developed that verifies that they are indeed the owner of their NFTs. This allows our users to interact with Web3 from their Web2 apps.
We are currently working on the following:
- Developing the IOS version which will operate the same as the Android version.
- Developing the PvP mechanics where one player can combat directly with another player. We are currently testing 1v1, 2v2, and 4v4 matchmaking and gameplay mechanics.
- We are finalizing the PvP map where the PvP games will take place.
- Working with the Score Milk team to utilize their gaming SDK in order to offer TronVerse to Score Milk users who may not be Tron users. This will also allow gamers to use TronVerse for eSports type paid competitions. This is a big step to introduce a Tron-based product to gamers outside of the Tron ecosystem.
Being the first collection to ever transition an entire 2D NFT collection to 3D game playable models had its challenges. We wanted to make sure that the game playable characters were also created in such a way that they can also be utlilized outside the TronVerse ecosystem and vice versa. In order to achieve this, we designed every single trait as a 3D model which then gets pieced together utilizing a gaming rig that we developed. This gaming rig also allows 3rd party collections to onboard onto the TronVerse gaming ecosystem.
We are very proud to successfully make every Tron Bull Club NFT into a unique game playable character that can be used on the TronVerse ecosystem as well as on 3rd party apps. We are also very proud of the progress we have made in pushing the limits of webgl gaming.
The community is the key to building a successful gaming platform. Thanks to the continuous feedback from the community, we have been able to make adjustments and address the concerns that are dear to our gamers.
TronVerse will continue to roll out features and game styles that will appeal to gamers. This will bring many users to the Tron ecosystem and web3.
