Latest Inhabitants: Generative Identities News
Pixel Vault released the whitepaper for its upcoming Inhabitants PvP game, titled BattlePlan!
❗ Why It Matters
The Reboot Protocol whitepaper was more targeted towards developers, as it was quite technical in nature. It detailed Reboot's open arcade protocol and plan to disrupt the centralized nature of the gaming industry, whereas this BattlePaper covers the actual gameplay mechanics of the PvP auto-brawler.
And while it's been known that the Inhabitants generative identities would be the in-game characters, the BattlePaper provides clarification on how the entire ecosystem fits into the game.
📝 The Deets
- BattlePlan! is a 3v3 strategic auto-brawler in which the player makes decisions and the fighting is carried out automatically.
- A BattlePlan! match is played over multiple rounds, with the goal being to win 16 rounds before losing six lives.
- Players will use Game Credits, which can be acquired from:
- Purchases using ETH
- Score ecosystem bonuses and airdrops given to holders of Inhabitant NFTs
- NDT or vNDT (NDT is a placeholder name for the token the protocol will use, and vNDT is a reward earned for each round won)
- The credits you need to play and any possible rewards depend on the difficulty level you choose.
- BattlePlan! Alpha (V1) represents just the first release, and there will be new features with each new season and release.
🔜 What’s Next?
Those interested should read the BattlePaper! for in-depth detail about the game, such as collectible skills, loadouts, team customizations, and more.

cool art! someone please sparknotes the battle paper for me please, maybe a video? 😂🙏</span></strong><span class=
Pixel Vault is launching their upcoming auto-brawler on Reboot, and a whitepaper for the arcade protocol was released, per this tweet from Reboot.gg.
❗ Why It Matters
The Reboot whitepaper declares that the gaming ecosystem is broken, and Reboot.gg is presenting a decentralized solution to the traditional problems associated with the gaming industry, such as high fees (the industry average platform fee is 30%), predatory monetization tactics, and an overall lack of fun.
The protocol provides a scalable framework for managing in-game economies and controlling how matchmaking is conducted, among many other things. Players can be rewarded from both regular gameplay and affiliate rewards, developers get a cut of session revenue and the sale of in-game items, and other participants can earn fees from providing liquidity; and all the monetary flows are traceable from the point-of-purchase.
What It Means
- Reboot Shop enables in-game digital tokens that can be either sold to players or used as rewards for winning games.
- Players will gain true ownership of their game items, as opposed to how Fortnite skins are bought but can never be sold or moved off the server, or the mechanics within popular online modes such as 2K's NBA MyTeam or FIFA's Ultimate Team (in which items reset every year).
- Players can earn tokens or rewards in the form of NFTs, for the number of completed game sessions or for completing objectives.
- Matchmaking uses on-chain data to determine relative player skill.
- Developers can issue promotional game credits to promote their games.

Gaming+Web3 is not a new idea, but tokenizing game economies presents design challenges that can result in less competition, and interest in web3 gaming. Reboot offers a solution with minimal cost for developers to incorporate a stable web3 growth economy in their games.@TuringCrypto
🔜 What’s Next?
Pixel Vault will be sharing the whitepaper for their @inhabitants_ Autobrawler game in "the next week or so", according to @TuringCrypto.
