Nova Rally burst onto the WAX scene not long ago, quickly selling out their initial pack set and generating an extremely active secondary market. The buzz continues as the launch of the initial ‘Snaking system’ approaches. The hype for this game is strong, so let’s take a brief look at what it is all about.
Nova Rally is a collectible, NFT, simulation, racing game built on the WAX blockchain. It joins the ever growing list of NFT staking games. Owners of Nova Rally NFTs will be able to collect Snake Oil, the in-game currency, simply by holding onto ‘snakeable’ NFTs and triggering the claim routine on a daily basis. Snaking is expected to go live soon. There have been a couple of delays to ensure that the smart contracts controlling staking are solid.
Following what seems to be a tradition on WAX, Nova Rally has already announced partnerships with Olive Land and Promo Planet. NFTs from both projects will also be able to generate Snake Oil. Cross-project support seems to be an ongoing hallmark among projects on WAX — from Alien Worlds to CryptoMonkeys to R-Planet to Nova Rally!
Nova Rally NFTs level up and generate different Snake tokens, each of which will be required for entering the increasingly elite leagues.
How do I play Nova Rally?
Nova Rally is a racing simulation game on the WAX blockchain. NFTs for the game consist of cars and drivers. Players collect the game NFTs and use them to accumulate Snake Oil. Then, paying a fuel/entrance fee, players submit combinations of cars and drivers into competitive races. Players compete against each other to find the best combinations and finish in a top 3 position. The winner of each race receives a Shadow Shard, which can be used to upgrade drivers and cars.
The cars and drivers selected for each race play a role in determining the winner. However, the secret formulas which calculate the outcomes will change with each new Season. The game runs in a series of Seasons. Each season ends with four races called the Nova Rally Championship. Players will receive boosts and rewards for winning races. Some of those boosts will increase the winners’ staking power!
The road ahead
Nova Rally plans to have several leagues, with players gaining access to those leagues by leveling up their cards via Drivers Manuals. Players finishing in the top 1-5% of each race receive Drivers Manuals. The higher leagues will require different tokens to enter.
The game is in a very early development stage but promises many interesting features such as player-owned racetracks, head-to-head races, and perma-death for losing drivers! NFTs will stake for their full value once the racing game is released.
Pack sales have ended, but you can pick up cars, drivers, and even unopened packs on the secondary markets.
