The German developers at Dacoco GmbH have sold all the available land for their intergalactic grand strategy game Alien Worlds within two days. The sale started on Friday and sold out on Sunday. Players bought 3343 land parcels in a Dutch auction with a starting price of 0.7457 ETH or 12570 WAX per land pack.
By buying a land pack, players have no idea what type of land they are buying. In order to find out, they have to open these packs. There are six different planets and on these planets there are different terrain types as well. There are twenty types of land that provide different resources. Players who own land, earn passive income paid in the in-game currency Trilium (TLM). The developers will add more features to landownership in the future.
The land packs and all other assets for Alien Worlds are stored on the Wax blockchain. Wax is working on adding interoperability with the Ethereum blockchain, which would allow developers to tap into the economy of the Ethereum blockchain while embracing the collectible aspects of Wax.
DeFi meets NFTs
The developers of Dacoco promote their game as ‘DAOs in space’ and ‘NFT DeFi metaverse’. Based on your landownership, you get to vote on the government of a planet. Each planet is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) on its own. Players will use Trilium to upgrade their NFTs, upgrade land or enter special events. In addition they can stake their in-game money to a planet, and earn that particular planets fungible token as well.
During the sale all land has the same rating, and therefore TLM is distributed equally among all landowners. However, in the near future land can be upgraded through terraforming. This will give a landowner a higher yield. Every day planets receive 80 percent of the daily Trilium distribution, while landowners get 20 percent.

What is Alien Worlds?
Don’t confuse this game with the newly launched Netflix series, because they have nothing in common. Alien Worlds is an exploration and mining game in which players can own land, use tools and weapons, customize their avatars, own rare artifacts and have minions to use in battles.
Players in this game world earn Trilium (TLM). This is a cryptocurrency token that bridges the Wax and Ethereum blockchain, allowing the economies of both chains to merge into one. Players earn TLM through mining, and can spend the tokens on betters tools and weapons.
Ultimately Alien Worlds needs to become a 3D game where avatars roam planets using tools to mine Trilium. Through terraforming, players should even be able to create events and parties on their own lands. There’s also a PVP element to the game, titled the Thunderdome.
