About the game

Player Requirements

To play Dustland Runner, users will have to download the app from the App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android, then create an account in the app or on the website. Even though there is no need to connect a crypto wallet to start running with Dustland Runner, it is necessary if the player wants to earn in-game rewards.

Tokennomics

Token: $DOSE

Utility Token

Total Supply: 5,000,000,000

DOSE is an ERC-20 Fungible Token that is utilized to unlock items, purchase NFTs and participate in special events and game modes. There are no current staking possibilities available at this time.

Monetization

Players can earn by spending their energy. For each energy unit spent, the player receives a share of the activity reward pool. Also, by using energy, players receive random rewards like gear or crafting materials, which can be sold on the marketplace. After leveling up their gear, they can also start to earn DOSE at a faster pace. Players will need a MetaMask wallet to convert these game items into NFTs or DOSE tokens.

Analytic Opinion

“This is a Move-To-Earn project that comes from the fitness metaverse, OliveX, which is centered around the DOSE token but more importantly, on the concept of bridging gaming with fitness and well-being. In the modern world where obesity is on the rise and public health is more important than ever, it would be wise not to underestimate the impact that projects like these could have on the world.

The Dustland presents a cohesive vision and a solid set of ideas that could all theoretically work. The challenges here are going to be related to development and sustainability.

This project in particular faces the threat of being undermined by cheaters, and maintaining trust with its users is going to be key in the future.

The team needs to update its Road Map to inspire this level of trust. They should make sure they develop an engaging and revolutionary product that does not end up being forgotten in a sea of similar initiatives that are all attempting to achieve something unique. Since the whitepaper is kind of confusing (especially the story section and how it relates to the game itself), and the Road Map is such an important element of projects like this, I would not advise investing in The Dustland at this time.”

The Dustland is a project that takes users into a parallel virtual world with a rich story and background, incorporating the Move-To-Earn (M2E) initiative.The goal is to connect them to their own character in The Dustland, each of which has its own inventory, gear, level, and progression path through the missions they accept. It is also called an “Audio Game” because users will be able to listen to The Dustland story while they run. Of course, this means that the game requires an active internet connection to play, and GPS in order to get rewards.

The game is about completing missions to drive the game story forward, while encouraging physical activity and community involvement.

Users must try to expend their energy wisely in order to progress in the missions. Each player will have 20 points of energy to spend each day. For every minute they run, one unit of energy is consumed, and they will be rewarded with one share of the Activity Reward pool.

This reward will depend on their energy levels, and how many players are running at that specific time of the day. Users can be compensated with crafting materials to make gear, or DOSE, the universe´s utility token which can be used to unlock items, purchase NFTs, and participate in special events and game modes.

After all the player’s energy is spent, they won’t be able to get more rewards, but can still continue their run, and after spending at least 5 units of energy, they will be able to receive crafting materials. These materials are necessary to craft better gear for their character, such as shoes, which give extra perks and also impact how much DOSE can be earned. Gear can also be minted as NFTs and traded afterwards.In order to consistently gain DOSE, users should spend their energy every day. Users can also play Dustland Runner using the step count mode and running on a treadmill without activating their GPS, but they won’t get rewards.

Operation Ape Missions:

These story missions require an Ape Access Pass that can be bought on secondary marketplaces such as OpenSea. Players of the Operation Ape missions will have access to an exclusive DOSE rewards pool and rarer item drops that are only available in Operation Ape Missions.

There will also be a Dustland Rider app, which will be the world’s first blockchain Ride-To-Earn (R2E) cycling game, as well as a story-driven game in which users will connect their indoor/outdoor bike with a speed sensor or power meter and synchronize it with the software from their computer or smartphone. This will be similar to the Dustland Runner game in that players will be able to get rewards for completing physical activity goals.
