Generative Dungeon First Look

Though their Dungeon mint was over a year ago, I first heard of Generative Dungeon only recently, and decided to take a look at this rather unique NFT collection. With playable, editable, Dungeon NFTs, Generative Dungeon has brought us something very interesting!

Generative Dungeon has actually been around for some time, holding their Dungeon mint in late 2021. It is a collection of 3,000, unique, playable, customizable NFTs.

Generative Dungeons are playable NFTs. That’s right, the actual NFT is playable. It’s kind of hard to understand without actually seeing for yourself. So, go to their Open Sea collection, click on one of the dungeons, then click on the NFT image to start! You actually play the game in the image window!

What are Generative Dungeons?

Procedurally generated, each Dungeon comes with its own character class, terrain type, monsters, and more. The game is a typical, Roguelite type game with warriors, spellcasters, fantasy creatures, etc. Players explore the map in a turn-based manner, with items to pick up and monsters to fight. The objective is to survive, get to the bottom of the dungeon, and find the ‘Shitcoin’. Once that is done, your name and score are saved to the Dungeon’s leaderboard.

Generative Dungeon doesn’t have any built-in play to earn features. It’s up to each dungeon owner to decide how to use their NFT. And they do have some tools available. Dungeon owners can choose to lock their dungeon behind a passcode. They can also change their Dungeon’s leaderboard, which is attached to the NFT. They can remove players from it, or wipe it entirely. So there is room for enterprising dungeon masters to host tournaments and other events with their Dungeon.

Additionally, Dungeon owners can edit their NFT with the Dungeon Editor. This includes adding clues for players, pre-generated levels, portals, and various other things. I would expect the offerings in the bazaar to expand significantly as development progresses.

Generative Avatars and Integrated Partners

Players default to the character class associated with the Dungeon unless they have a Generative Avatar, which can be played in any Dungeon. On top of that, these Avatar NFTs have their own game embedded! A multiplayer, fantasy, battle royale, style rumble.

In addition, there are also a number of integrated partners. If you hold an NFT from an integrated collection, you can play with a special, exclusive Avatar , which is kind of cool! And they are always looking for more partners to collaborate with. In another cool feature, NFT collections who are also Dungeon owners can link their collections, providing an in-game bonus to players who hold their NFTs.

Owners of both types of NFTs can stake them on the official site to earn DNG token. DNG can be used at bazaar to buy items. The Generative Dungeon team has additional plans to add Generative Quests, allowing for more dungeon customization and adding 3D gameplay!
