Etheremon: When VR Meets Blockchain

arkane top banner

Etheremon is a crypto collectible game, and beyond, available since late 2017. It’s one of the first decentralized games based on the Ethereum Network with plans to migrate into VR the next year.

In a fantasy world of unique Mons, the adorable little monsters who exist in the Ethereum blockchain, players can catch-a-mon and become their trainer. Mons can become stronger by battling them with others.

Speaking with numbers, 6.5000 users have already bought more than 35,000 Mons and conducted 150,000 battles. The game can be found in the second place in terms of daily users right after CryptoKitties based on data provided by DappRadar. While the difference is small, there are times that Etheremon takes the first place.

There are Mons available to purchase for as low as 0.03 ETH, but the game is free to play with some basic Mons available to new players. Again, as most of the collectible games, Mons comes with generationsGeneration 0 represents the first batch of Mons, considering the game will be a success and attract a big players base, the oldest your Mon is, the bigger it’s value will be.

While you play the game and progress, you will be able to accumulate rewards in EMONT Tokens. An ERC-20 Cryptocurrency made specifically for Etheremon with a total supply of 20 Million Tokens. 70% of them are available in the game, available to be mined.

Etheremon aims to combine Blockchain with Virtual Reality (VR) in cooperation with Decentraland (Mana) to advance in the Game 3.0 era.

At the time of writing this article, Ethermon comes in second place with 185 players based on data provided by DappRadar.

The community is rather big considering the number of blockchain players worldwide with regular contests. A new community contest, Etheremon Battle Quest Season #2 will begin with a week, make sure you join and compete with other players. Jake Tran, Co-founder and Game Designer, presented an early version of Etheremon VR last month in Nifty Conference, a HongKong based event, organized by Decentraland and Kinetic Capital.

What’s your Personality?

Did you know that Mons come in different types? It’s safe to say that what you choose reflects your personality. Mons with Water elements, for example, have great communication skills, and they express their sympathy towards others, but once they decide to go bad, they turn into little evil creatures, ready to hunt and kill.

My personal favorite is Telepath. With spiritual powers possession, they can foretell the future or judge a person. What more can you ask for?

Choose between 17 unique types and strategically take out your opponents in battles and in-game events.

Etheremon Virtual Reality.

VR is somehow leading the gaming industry right now, well, this might not be that accurate, but for sure, VR is in the race to become better and more affordable. Every gamer can understand that VR is the future of gaming, and in Etheremon, they know that.

Based on Decentraland Technology, Etheremon will allow its players to discover new Mons in Genesis City without too many changes in the game’s mechanics.

Decentraland Technology focuses on VR Gaming, while Etheremon is one of the first dApps to exist in this promising ecosystem of games. Expect a release in 2019.

With that said, let’s take a look at this Etheremon Video.

A new game mode called “Adventure Mode” will become available very soon, and it seems that it will change the gameplay a lot. Never seen before, Mons will be available to catch, including Legendary ones.

With a tweet, Etheremon announced to the public that the first Adventure Site, Hollywood, has become available for purchase through OpenSea Decentralized Marketplace. The price drops as time goes by.

Adventure Sites provides the ability to earn amazing rewards by sending your Mons to explore a new, never seen before landmark in the world of Etheremon.

Conclusion

What I find important here is that we are not talking about yet another crypto collectible. Once players can play Etheremon in VR, they will receive more exposure, and the community will grow exponentially. Don’t expect fancy graphics as the VR technology is not yet ready. With decent graphics (for VR Standards) and enjoyable gameplay, Etheremon has the chance to accomplish something big. The game mechanics are good, and there are so many varieties to think about before you sent your Mon for a fight.
