Inhabitants Universe, formerly known as MetaHeroes Identities, has launched DOTs (Designated Observational Travelers). Evolutions 1 and 2 are now available on the website.
DOTs are described as DOTs "super-intelligent, super-chaotic space robots originally designed for the enterprising individual looking to explore space," per the website. DOTs use Fragments, and the MintPass 2 and DOT digital tokens are each assigned their own Fragment value which is used to evolve the DOTs.
Burning a MintPass 2 will allow users to mint the DOTs. 1 DOT + amount of DOTs/MintPasses will be needed to evolve.

Thanks to the help from Blur Studio, Pixel Vault has "grown the creative team to include long-form writers, concept artists, and a production house who are collectively driving the evolution of the MetaHero Universe."
In June 2022, the project announced a one-year timeline to produce an animated show but has shifted from the plan to focus more on "delivering our first gaming experiences."
There were also a handful of product updates such as the team ensuring that DOTs will make MintPass 2 tokens "exponentially deflationary over time," the team building its own style guide for a rebrand, and assurance that even though new iterations of the MetaHero PFP will occur over time current holders will keep their "Chris Wahl MetaHero designs."
Odious also touched more on the upcoming game for MetaHero stating that the community will have a direct impact on the game's evolution and a reminder that the game will be built and funded by Pixel Vault. The team assures holders that it has teamed up with a "seasoned gaming partner to create an immersive experience for your MetaHeroes."
Lastly, Odious announced that not Chris Wahl, but an unannounced artist, will be creating the upcoming comics for Pixel Vault.
