After releasing a first alpha version open to anyone, the Mines of Dalarnia team started working on the version 2.0 of their highly anticipated casual play-to-earn game. They just opened the testnet for this second release and players of the version 1 can now apply to test this new version. If you believe in the project and want to earn passive income, you should take a look at the second land sale that is about to start.
Back in February, the Mines of Dalarnia team released some teaser images and videos of the upcoming 2.0 release. Less than one month later, the team delivered and released the update on the Chromia Testnet. The game is still free to play and no earnings are possible at this stage as it runs on a test network.
They started by opening their doors to 200 lucky testers and they are slowly expanding the number of testers. Everyone who has played the first version of the game is eligible to test the 2.0 release. If you played it, all you need to do is complete a couple of tasks on twitter, join the discord server and fill in this google form. All the details can be found in the Google form.
Mines of Dalarnia 2.0 Gameplay Preview
Some of the first testers recorded videos to showcase the new gameplay. We have read in the discord channels that some players prefer the more simple graphics of the first version. I think that the upgrade looks great and it’s just a matter of time until early players get used to the new look and feel of the game.

What is Mines of Dalarnia
Mines of Dalarnia is a mining, platforming, PvE game developed by Workinman Studio and Chromia Studios. Running on the Chromia blockchain, Mines of Dalarnia is free-to-play and browser-based. Racing against time, players mine exotic materials in hostile environments, then use the materials to upgrade their equipment and abilities.
Players own land plots in-game, and rent them out for miners. Plots come in four different terrain types: terrestrial, lava, ice, and darkness. Owners may also upgrade their lands to provide more resources. Upgrading requires resources from the miners, creating an in-game economy around keeping the plots maintained.
With most mining adventures lasting less than 5 minutes, Mines of Dalarnia is very casual friendly. The game is currently in its alpha phase, open to all, and running on the Chromia testnet.
