The virtual building world of My Neighbor Alice will get its first playable test on August 31st, as Antler Interactive will launch a pre-alpha version of the game. The introduction chapter for the game will be available to ALICE token holders until September 30th.

What is My Neighbor Alice?
My Neighbor Alice is a blockchain-powered multiplayer builder game in which players build their own virtual lands, interact with their neighbors, do all kinds of daily and social activities, and earn rewards. Anyone can join the world by buying a piece of land, participate in farming, fishing, bug catching, beekeeping, and many other activities. There are quests players can do together, while others are more competitive.
Neighborhoods will be governed by Community Councils. This is basically a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) where players can use their ALICE tokens to vote on certain decisions. Furthermore, the DAO will gain more power over time to distribute revenues for additional game development.
In an in-game marketplace, players can sell and buy different items and NFTs. Avatars allow for personalization, while character developments help them to unlock exclusive events and even rewards.
My Neighbor Alice plans to add DeFi elements to the game. NFTs will have collateral, making them more liquid and therefore economically useable. Each NFT gives a monthly interest for holding it, but token holders can also tap into the value.
A share of every NFT purchase will go into a collateral pool, and it’s tied to that particular NFT. If a user needs money, but there’s no buyer, they can lock their NFT and get the collateral instead. The NFT becomes locked and users then need to pay back the money in order to regain control over their digital assets.
