ApeCoin's Game Journey: SOG - Revolutionary Blockchain MOBA Game

Proposal Name : ApeCoin’s Game Journey: SOG - Revolutionary Blockchain MOBA Game

Proposal Category : ApeCoin Ecosystem Fund Application

Game Introduction

Summon of Glory (SOG) is developed by Playcraft Studio and is supported by renowned institutions such as @animocabrands, @shimacapital, @bigbrainvc, and @mechanismcap. We believe that through the combination of NFTs and UGC, it will completely change the way users experience and interact with competitive games on the blockchain.

In the repeated calls of glory, the game system will continuously select the most outstanding Yuga NFTs, combining digital art with human’s agile sensory perception capabilities to depict a perfect, immersive, and thrilling crypto game world. As an advocate and builder of NFT Games, the emergence of “Summon of Glory” will further enrich the forms of expression and application scenarios of ApeCoin, thereby enhancing its brand awareness and influence.

“Summon of Glory” allows players to create, play, and share within its immersive universe, just like the widely praised games “Minecraft” and “Roblox,” immersing players in a world of limitless creativity. SOG leverages a mature UGC engine and the latest AI technology, lowering the entry barrier for game development, enabling anyone to effortlessly craft their own unique, personalized blockchain MOBA experience.

Game Highlights

SOG pioneers the integration of NFT commercialization with gaming, enabling Yuga and other NFT holders to showcase their cherished NFTs as powerful heroes in game battles. Through the innovative Playcraft framework, any NFT project or holder can witness their assets come to life within the game, thereby fostering deeper engagement and monetization opportunities.

Classic Gameplay : SOG draws inspiration from well-received games like Dota and CS:GO, blending familiarity with innovation.

Strong Social Interaction : SOG’s fast-paced 5v5 battles last only 10 minutes, promoting social interaction and viral spread.

Interoperability : Users can seamlessly transfer progress and gain multiple benefits between games within the SOG ecosystem.

NFT Application : Trade heroes and skins, unlocking new ways to participate in games and monetization paths.

Scalability : Smooth and seamless gameplay experience regardless of the number of concurrent players.

This collaboration will not only add entertainment and richness to community events but also strengthen the mutual understanding of digital art among community users, enhance community activity viscosity, and build ApeCoin’s influence in the evolving narrative of digital art.

NFT Collection

As a pioneer in the NFT+GameFi field, we collaborate with multiple NFT blue-chip holders, communities, and project parties to jointly create the commercialization of NFTs in the gaming field. Through this cooperation model, we deeply understand the gamification needs of NFT project parties and long-term NFT holders, and use the NFTs provided by partners to enhance our game content, cooperating with more than 30 partners and collecting over 300 NFTs.

In the future, we hope to collaborate with the ApeCoin community to hold NFT voting events, allowing the community to decide the top 8 NFTs they would like to become heroes in SOG. Through NFT voting activities, we believe we can inject new vitality into the ApeCoin community.

Benefits to the ApeCoin Ecosystem

Regarding the proposal “ApeCoin Game Journey: SOG - Revolutionary Blockchain MOBA Game” it can form a complementary relationship between SOG and ApeCoin, generating certain favorable conditions in aspects such as brand influence, brand consensus and revenue, community activity, and community participation, specifically manifested in the following aspects—

Expand brand exposure and enhance brand influence

NFTs, as an important part of Web3, have always been known and recognized by the Web3 community, but facing the Web2 user base, NFTs still need to be explored and understood by Web2 users, and user participation is even more challenging.

SOG, as a GameFi that uses NFTs as game hero characters, can not only circulate in Web3 to strengthen the brand memory of community users for ApeCoin. Its simple way for game players to enter the game system can also allow ApeCoin to circulate in front of more Web2 user groups, to understand the mystery and charm of digital art, and to expand ApeCoin’s exposure and dissemination outside the Web3 world. This helps ApeCoin to find more valuable and constructive commercial or public welfare applications, realizing brand value.

SOG Game Startup/Banner Display:

SOG Game Startup/Banner Display : The startup screen of the SOG game will be dedicated to showcasing dynamic digital art and information of ApeCoin. This high-frequency, high-exposure placement ensures that every player planning to enter the game world can enjoy the visual impact of ApeCoin, enhancing brand image recognition and strengthening brand memory.

Accept ApeCoin and AIP Approval : SOG’s goal is to let more game players enter the game while promoting the use of ApeCoin projects. Therefore, SOG will pay special attention to projects approved by the ApeCoin DAO AIP process. We will also respect the rights of each creator and ensure clear and unique brand recognition in the game.

SOG Game Logo : We promise that in the SOG game logo, the prominent “ape” image of ApeCoin will appear in the central position of the game logo and remain unchanged, which is conducive to creating a visually influential and impactful reminder of ApeCoin’s existence and strengthening the brand image.

SOG Website Promotion Page and Educational Videos : There is a special ApeCoin page on the SOG website to help enthusiasts entering the game understand ApeCoin. Produce professional educational videos to explain the concept of ApeCoin. And help players quickly understand Yuga NFT characters, increasing the understanding and experience of game players with Yuga NFT game characters. We believe that the higher the usage rate of Yuga NFT, the more ApeCoin will continue to be endowed with value.

Commercial Benefits of NFT+GameFi

After SOG goes online, through its social and leisure attributes, it will attract a scale of hundreds of thousands of game users. We will continue to emphasize the cooperation between ApeCoin and SOG among SOG’s game users to help expand the visibility of ApeCoin.

As a classic 5V5 competitive game, all the heroes in the game are designed based on NFT images, including BAYC and other NFTs that can be designed as different heroes in the game, each with different professions and skills. Users purchase and trade heroes and skins in the game, SOG will receive revenue, and the ApeCoin community and NFT holders will receive a permanent share of this part of the revenue.

Achieving ApeCoin Education Promotion

SOG, as an online Moba GameFi, can not only support mobile and web terminals, meeting the needs of the vast majority of Internet users. At the same time, we will also go offline and hold related event activities, allowing offline users who like games, art, or crypto art to participate, and experience a battle of glory.

The winning players can not only get points rewards in the game system but also receive ApeCoin community-provided NFT peripherals, including but not limited to booklets, dolls, badges, cards, and even autographs from Yuga holders. In addition, the event site will also be decorated to reflect the origin, brand concept, and values of ApeCoin, achieving offline communication and education promotion methods for ApeCoin, such as roll-up banners, electronic screens, electronic recordings, lighting settings, and even applications on tea breaks.

Cultivating Loyalty Community Activities

SOG will hold exclusive activities for members of the ApeCoin community, including but not limited to SOG game testing, SOG community and ApeCoin community interaction, UGC content creation competitions, and airdrops before tokenization. This will deepen the ApeCoin community’s understanding of SOG, and at the same time, we also hope to help the connection and sharing between community members, assisting in the long-term construction of the ApeCoin platform.

In the seasonal activities, SOG can initiate a game glory battle for ApeCoin and Yuga holders. During the season, community members can not only see their favorite NFTs perform well in the game. At the same time, SOG will also initiate an Ape NFT voting event, allowing each Yuga holder’s NFT to have the possibility of appearing in the game, allowing them to compete with their favorite, expected, or desired NFT game hero characters!

In addition, SOG will also regularly hold community game dominance competitions, UGC content creation activities, etc., in conjunction with major NFT communities, allowing ApeCoin to flow in every NFT community, enhancing ApeCoin’s brand recognition. SOG believes that this can not only become a way to gather the community but also strengthen the opportunities for interconnection and internal connection between NFT communities, forming a more united and vibrant community!

Accept ApeCoin Payment

SOG promises to accept ApeCoin payment for the purchase and transaction of in-chain assets in the game. We believe that this will further expand the payment scenarios of ApeCoin and also expand the users of SOG.

In summary, the above proposal aims to help the long-term healthy development of the ApeCoin ecosystem through the unique NFT+UGC+Gamefi model. By using online entertainment, offline education, and other methods, it achieves the connection between digital art and the real world, not only allowing game players to experience the pleasure of the game but also allowing users to understand the charm and richness of digital art in the game experience, thereby improving the visibility of NFT, which also brings meaningful participation and value to the ApeCoin ecosystem.

Nice presentation! Gaming is definitely a relevant way to onboard new people, as long as the game is either fun or profitable. This reminds me a little of Block Ape Scissors, which was an NFT project in the last cycle that was also a virtual card-based game with an interesting twist - you could wager “dust” in your wallet from various altcoins even if it didn’t have a significant dollar value. I always thought that was interesting twist. I was curious about Playcraft Studio - are they a separeate LLC from ApeCoin DAO? Would the IP accrue to them as an LLC or be held by individuals?
