This week’s Cardano NFT project is a Play to Earn (P2E) Idle Heroes Game that is being developed by a team from Latvia: Chibidango Heroes.

The previous guest was a project building an educational and fully on-chain game that uses real astronomical data.

This initiative is a point of reference for NFTs on Cardano and every week or two we will invite someone to answer some questions and give us an update directly from within the Cardano community.

Cardano NFT project Chibidango Heroes is building a P2E game

Hey, glad to have you here. Tell us something about your team, where are you from, what are your backgrounds?

Hello, our team consists of four people and we have been developing Play to Earn (P2E) games since 2018.

Oleg is the Product Designer, Aigar is an awesome Digital Artist and Alla and Vitaly are Software Engineers.

We are located in Latvia, Riga! We have a strong background of developing products with 10+ years of experience.

What is Chibidango Heroes? How are you utilizing NFTs and why have you chosen Cardano for your project?

Chibidango Heroes is a P2E Idle Heroes Game, players will be able to manage their heroes, level them up, upgrade their items and participate in idle battles.

We have tons of utility for our NFTs and $DGEMS token, from creating and burning new heroes to level up the existing ones to using our token in every activity that the heroes need to become stronger.

We have been following Cardano since 2017 and were patiently waiting for its development.

Humans in the Chibidango universe

What are your thoughts on the critiques by the traditional gaming community of Play To Earn being unsustainable and reminiscent of pyramid schemes? What does a healthy P2E model look like?

A lot of P2E games nowadays copy the same template over and over again selling Governance token that does not provide a lot of utility in the game and eventually goes down in price, not to mention Staking with a large APY percentage.

A healthy P2E model doesn’t exist right now! What we are trying to do is to fix the longevity of the economy.

We at Chibidango Heroes have a different approach by providing a Treasury system similar to Cardano Treasury with Catalyst.

Can you give us an overview of what will be possible to do in the Chibidango universe? Will it be necessary to buy NFTs to play or will there be a Free To Play (F2P) component?

Players will be able to manage their Chibis, increase their level, power up through crafting and upgrading items, gather resources from battles and use Item Marketplace to sell or buy items and resources for $ADA.

It will also be possible to participate in competitive Arena battles to earn monthly $ADA rewards from the Treasury and many more.

It is necessary to have at least 6 Chibis to start playing! We could enable F2P at some point, but these F2P Chibis will not be allowed to earn, because it could break the economy.

Thank you kindly for your time. Any final thoughts? Where can people learn more about Chibidango Heroes?

Everyone can learn more about Chibidango Heroes on our main website.

We have a very solid Whitepaper for the players to read.
