Genesis Genopet Sale LIVE on Cyber Monday
Announcing Genesis Genopet NFT Sale
TL;DR We’re selling 3,333 limited-edition, pre-evolved Stage 4 Genopets on 11/29/2021. All players who have a Genopet Egg are automatically on the whitelist for minting a Genesis Genopet and will be able to participate in the mint for FREE. The pricing for the Genesis Genopets will be in GENE, and players who didn’t make the whitelist are getting another chance at a headstart using Metaplex’s Fair Launch Protocol. Additionally, we are adding all players who mint a Genesis Genopet to the private beta.
We, the Genopets Team, wish to extend a huge thank you to our amazing community for being so supportive of one another and giving Genopets purpose. You guys put the “G” in 🐐.
As we ride the excitement of our token launch this morning and move toward the private beta of the game, we are thrilled to finally announce the details of our official Genesis Genopet NFT sale, the first of many drops to come.
So, without further ado, we’d like to introduce the community to the first-ever, limited-edition Genesis Genopet NFTs! 🎉
The Genesis Genopets of Esoterra, Quadrant 9, of the Gematria Galaxy
Last month, we air-dropped 1000 Genopet Egg NFTs to the earliest supporters in our community. Since then, we’ve been trending on Solanart and FTX.us. Genopet Eggs are tickets to the Genesis Genopet whitelist, and all holders are guaranteed the opportunity to mint Genesis Genopets. Previously, we announced Genesis Egg holders would have an guaranteed price of .8 SOL in the mint, but after seeing the excitement and growth of the community since Eggs were listed, we’ve decided to make the mint free for all Genesis Egg holders, no GENE or SOL needed.
To ensure Genopet NFTs will be accessible to Genovians and holders of GENE Token, Genopets will be pricing the Genesis Genopet sale and all future sales in GENE. So CONGRATULATIONS to those of you who were able to snag a Genopet Egg NFT! It’s time to put away the Black Friday helmets, kneepads, and realization that you’re being ripped off the other 364 days out of the year because you’ll be the first in the world, guaranteed to mint your very own limited-edition Genesis Genopet.
And for those of you who didn’t make the whitelist, there are still 2,333 chances to get a head-start!
A Genopet is a generative NFT digital spirit animal in which you will imbue with your unique psychological profile to give life. You can customize, upgrade, and evolve your Genopet by living an active lifestyle and translating physical activity into in-game utility. When the game launches, everyone will be able to mint an infant Genopet for free. Over time, a Genopet’s rarity and value will increase through investing time and effort in your gameplay to augment your Genopet’s Genotype, battle performance, and physical appearance.
On Cyber Monday, November 29, 2021, we will be selling 3,333 pre-evolved Stage 4 Genesis Genopet NFTs that bear a distinct genesis marking, solidifying their first edition status even as other players evolve their pet to and beyond this level. Genesis Genopets are playable in-game like all other Genopets. However, players will have the advantage of starting with limited-edition characteristics and rare augmentations that other players will have to earn, giving them a head-start in the game.
We’re Designing Procedurally Generated Modular Art
Designing Genopet NFTs — the centerpiece of the game — requires mastery of both technical and artistic abilities. Genopets are not just random predetermined JPEGs but procedurally constructed 3D models generated on the fly as you mint, so they must be modular and have interchangeable components while still being aesthetically desirable in any given permutation. Their aesthetic, modular system comprises anatomical parts, consisting of twelve interchangeable components that players can combine to create an astronomical amount of unique Genopets. As players’ levels, skill sets, and visual preferences come together, the number of unique Genopet combinations is endless.
The sheer volume of work required to scale, deliver, and execute the process of creating a unique creature with 12 different body parts for every player and over 77 levels and 12 stages of evolution is not a simple feat.
“The Genopets team has meticulously created an anatomical design system that allows for a massive range of permutations so that each Genopet can be unique to each player,” said
Benjamin Tse, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of Genopets, “Genopets are designed to be completely modular and are procedurally generated and upgraded to evolve as players interact with the game, essentially allowing users to become virtual sculptors of their own spirit animal.”
The Sweet Mint
If you’re one of the lucky players who have minted a Genopet Egg NFT, you’ve secured your place on the whitelist as one of the first 1000 players who get to mint an exclusive pre-evolved Stage 4 Genesis Genopet, the first of them all. Now, as it’s common for genesis NFT sales to have a set price, Metaplex’s Fair Launch Protocol makes it so that in our player-controlled market model — you — the community will set the minting price. We’re excited to start contributing to Metaplex and look forward to seeing more Fair Launch drops in the Solana ecosystem.
Plus, as a bonus, everyone who mints a Genesis Genopet will automatically get to be a part of the private beta! 🎉
The traditional NFT minting process consists of going to a landing page and clicking the “buy” button. W0w sO exCitiNg😂No way! Genopets wants to make sure that every aspect of your gameplay is an adventure. In order to align the Genesis Genopet minting experience with the Genopets game narrative, we’re designing a built-in immersive minting experience that builds excitement and anticipation as you summon your Genopet. We want you to be surprised when you meet your digital familiar for the first time.
Since people aren’t racing to hit the “buy” button but instead taking their time to enjoy and savor the surprise of the mint, this system makes for a smooth, spaced-out minting process that will ensure a great user experience. Click here to check out an early low-fidelity demo of our minting experience.
Minting with GENE Token
As part of Genopet’s Dual Token System, Gene Token is a governance token that represents the value of the Genopets game as a whole. In addition, players will use GENE Token in-game to craft Refined Crystals, Habitats, and other in-game NFTs. Players who hold GENE Token are essentially stakeholders in Genopets (a.k.a. Geneholders). And as Geneholders, players will get access to exclusive peaks at new content, voting rights towards the game design, and community privileges. Furthermore, by becoming a Geneholder, players earn a position among the Genoverse’s covert secret society — The Equilibrium.
Joining a community for a genesis drop is a major moment. And although there are only 3,333 Genesis Genopets that will be available for the first drop, we want to make sure that everyone gets to walk away with a piece of the Genoverse. So, even if a player doesn’t get to mint a Genesis Genopet, we will be air-dropping consolation NFTs to those who show their loyalty and support on this pivotal day for Genopets — because that’s what community is all about — supporting one another. The Genoverse is a big place, and we’re just getting started. Thank you for joining us on this journey. Hope to see you there!
