Now, Promo Planet is dedicating themselves to publishing short, concise articles in segments we call “NFT Spotlight”, with the goal of providing readers with a high-level summary of projects that we believe showcase what NFT Gaming is all about.

That’s why today, it only felt right to talk about a project that Promo Planet covered on our Twitch stream around the time of their first NFT sale - Zombiecoin! We’ll be going into detail about how to play the game, and discussing some of their big plans for 2022.

Zombiecoin (www.zombiecoin.io) is an NFT farming, mining & exploring game on the WAX blockchain. The different characters in the game (represented by NFTs) perform work tasks in Zombieland that allow players to collect and gather various NFTs.

What makes Zombiecoin different from other games?

A few things. First of all, at its core, it is a game based around low-cost NFT packs. For players who love opening packs and trying to get lucky, this is the kind of game they might enjoy since every work task is essentially a very low-cost NFT pack. Prices for packs range from $0.18-$0.35 USD and you can find a wide range of different NFTs inside. Second, the project rewards its players directly with WAX which is something most other games aren’t doing.

The game rewards players with WAX when Explorers find Mines and become Mine Owners. Mine Owners allow Zombie Miners to enter their Mines to search for ZBC - the in-game currency. WAX is also rewarded monthly to the top players on the Leaderboards.

Another aspect that community members and players seem to enjoy about the game is the fact that the community really has a say in the future development plans of the game. Since the game was released to the public in what they call their “pre-alpha phase”, the developers have made it a point to listen to feedback and suggestions, and implement the most popular ideas presented by its community members. They even plan to implement governance functions for their ZBC token.

What is ZBC (Zombiecoin)?

ZBC is a fungible token that was recently released on Alcor Exchange, and it has several use cases, namely; it is used as an integral part of most crafting recipes in the game such as Vehicles, Tools and more, to purchase Limited Edition NFTs from the Exchange Shop, to earn rewards for being at the top of the Leaderboards and more. There are also a ton of future uses planned for ZBC including being used to level up NFTs such as Characters, Land & Pets, to purchase collab NFTs from other projects at the exchange shop, buying Egg Incubators from the Exchange Shop, being an important factor in obtaining the powerful Region Governor, Zombie King, and Zombie Queen NFTs, and being used in many future crafting recipes.

Characters of Zombieland

Right now, there are three characters in the game - Villagers, Explorers & Zombie Miners, and each of them are able to perform different work tasks. Villagers are community members of Zombieland who chop trees and gather wood. Explorers explore Zombieland in search of Mines and other raw materials such as Boots (for Fabric), Broken Bottles (for Glass), and Rocks (for Stone). Zombie Miners are the only characters in the game who can withstand the toxic nature of the Mines, so they enter the Mines found by Explorers to try to deplete the ZBC reserves found within the mines. Zombie Miners can also find jewelry in the Mines - Rings, Bracelets, Necklaces and Tiaras. These NFTs spawn very rarely (all under 0.1%), so they’re extremely rare and valuable. They can be exchanged for high amounts of ZBC, and they also provide a high amount of TAV.

TAV is Total Asset Value and it can be thought of as a player’s in-game net worth. It refers to the total value of a player’s inventory, and is displayed on the Leaderboards at www.zombiecoin.io/play. TAV shows how you stack up among your fellow community members. Speaking of community members, one interesting aspect about Zombiecoin is the fact that there will only ever be 10,000 Villager NFTs sold, meaning there is a very limited population who will soon be able to purchase plots of land in Zombieland.

What's Next for Zombiecoin?

Zombiecoin has lots of big plans for 2022 - they’ll be releasing a fully revamped Game UI, Lands which players can build Homes, Farms and Lakes on, Pets who will perform daily work tasks, two more fungible tokens - ZBF and ZBW - which will represent food and wood in the game, a level-up system for characters, pets and lands, character look customization, and more! They’ve even mentioned a daily/weekly/monthly quest & mission system which will keep players engaged day-to-day, allowing them to complete various tasks in exchange for rewards.
