Upgrading Digital Assets in Alien Worlds Explained

Game studio Dacoco has revealed all the details about shining, an upcoming feature to enhance digital assets in their Alien Worlds game. Players will be able to combine digital assets and then create an improved version. In total Alien Worlds has four levels of shininess, Dacoco announced in their most recent blog post.

All digital assets in Alien Worlds start at a shininess of stone. By combining four of the same cards, these can be upgraded into one golden card. Four golden cards then become a stardust card, which players in turn can swap into an antimatter card. Shining makes a card look cooler, while reducing the supply. In addition shininess increases the gameplay statistics.

Shining doesn’t happen automatically. Aside from the four cards, players will also need to provide Trilium (TLM). The more rare the item, the more it will cost to increase the shininess. In addition, every new stage of shininess requires more TLM. Players will only be able to shine up avatars, weapons, tools and artifacts. Land however, can’t be upgraded.

Dacoco will introduce the shining gameplay mechanics into Alien Worlds around 17:00 UTC on January 25th 2021.

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. Soon landowners can also airdrop their own custom NFTs to players.

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.
