The Elder Gods Have Arrived

The Elder Gods have arrived.

It’s time. Our Gen 0 collection, The Elder Gods, have touched down in the InfiniGods Universe (IGU).

And they have arrived with great splendor.

We’re excited to announce that starting this Thursday (12/1), the Elder Gods will launch as a free claim exclusively available to InfiniPass holders.

As advocates of the “Free to Own” movement, we believe strongly that it is our responsibility to reward dedicated players, beta testers, collectors, and supporters who have boldly endeavored to build the InfiniGods Universe with us. Since day 1, InfiniPass holders have been the lifeblood of the InfiniGods community. We couldn’t be more thrilled to put this collection in their hands.

Power to the players. This is our first move of many to carry out that mission.

 

Key Mint Details & Dates:

On Thursday (12/1) at 12PM EST, the claim window will open. Community Pass holders will have 1 week to claim their Elder Gods. This is a free mint, just pay gas.

Community Pass holders are entitled to claim (1) Elder God per pass.

Ultimate Pass holders will have (5) Elder Gods airdropped early on 11/30, including (1) special God created by SLOTH.

Any Elder Gods that are not claimed at the end of the window will automatically be sent to the InfiniGods treasury for future use (e.g. in-game rewards).

Note: The Elder Gods are exclusively available to InfiniPass holders. There is no public sale.

  • Max Total Supply: 4,488 Elder Gods
  • Price: 0.0 ETH — free claim for all InfiniPass holders
  • Ultimate Pass VIP Airdrop: 11/30
  • Claim Window Opens: 12/1 at 12PM EST
  • Claim Window Closes: 12/8 at 12PM EST
  • Elder Gods Reveal: 12/8

 

How To Mint:

The only way to claim your Elder God(s) is by visiting eldergods.xyz and connecting the wallet containing your Community Pass(es).

Each InfiniPass can only be used one time to mint an Elder God. Should you hold multiple InfiniPasses you will be able to select which one(s) to use to mint. The site will verify your pass is eligible prior to allowing you to mint.

Important: The InfiniGods team will never DM you with mint details. Please stay vigilant.

 

What Are The Elder Gods?

The Elder Gods are gaming assets that unlock epic abilities, enhance gameplay, and increase scoring potential. You can think of them as persistent power-ups that quite literally let you play as a god.

  • As our Gen 0 collection, the Elder Gods will always be the strongest Immortals in our universe of games.
  • The Elder Gods are built on the ERC-4907 standard, which will allow owners to rent out their assets to other players.

As the InfiniGods Universe expands, the Elder Gods will continue to be eternally interoperable across all game titles. In fact, each game will unlock new abilities, power-ups, attributes, and utility — increasing the value of your Elder Gods over time.

While InfiniMerge will showcase singular abilities, InfiniTowers will unleash the true potential of the Elder Gods with sophisticated stats, special abilities, and elemental affinities all in play (just to name a few things!).

 

What About The Art?

Long Wang, The Dragon King, as interpreted by 5 different artists.

Not only are the Elder Gods powerful gaming assets (utility!), they’re intricate art pieces.

It’s important to know up front: our production process is wholly unique compared to the majority of Web3 collections. We’ve taken a ‘first to market’ approach that balances uniqueness with overall continuity.

This is not a generative collection. Nor does it contain numbered editions.

The Elder Gods collection is comprised of 127 1/1 art pieces — dubbed The Originals. The Originals were hand-drawn by 17 artists from 10 countries around the world, including: Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Serbia, Ukraine, and the United States. All pieces were created under the mentorship of our legendary Art Director, Chris Beatrice.

Each artist (Chris included) was tasked with illustrating multiple Elder Gods in their own personal style; with the final curated set of 127 Originals serving as inspiration for the entirety of the collection.

The result is a collection that features a wide spectrum of styles and interpretations—from manga to painterly—creating unprecedented diversity and variance.

While all 4,488 Elder Gods root from the 127 Originals, each asset features a unique aesthetic combination.

 

Collection Architecture & Features

The Elder Gods collection consists of 4,488 unique assets. The collection is constructed as follows:

  • There are 20 types of Elder Gods, each with varying powers and abilities (e.g. Zeus, Poseidon).
  • Each Elder God features multiple Original designs. There are 5 different interpretations of Zeus, for instance.
  • The 20 Elder Gods are split across 4 Pantheons: Greek, Norse, Egyptian, & Chinese.
  • Each Pantheon contains 5 Elder Gods.

Additionally, the Elder Gods are organized into a Power Hierarchy. Tiers include Paragon, Gold, Silver, and Bronze — each of which maps to a series of underlying stats & attributes, and serves as an all-encompassing power indicator.

Higher tiers feature increased rarity, more impressive stats, and ultimately, more power in InfiniGods games.

The Paragon tier—the most formidable of the Elder Gods—is exclusively occupied by The Originals.

Note: SLOTH Gods, airdropped to Ultimate Pass holders, are guaranteed to be Paragon or Gold.

 

Do Sets of Elder Gods Matter?

Yes.

Players will see benefits by holding a diverse portfolio of God Types. Players with a broad “toolbox” of Elder Gods and God Powers to pull from will receive strategic flexibility and gameplay advantages over time.

Furthermore, while we won’t disclose specifics, completing and holding sets by Pantheon and of all 20 Elder Gods is behavior that we champion.

 

What About InfiniPasses?

InfiniPasses are our genesis asset. They are not MintPasses and they will remain in your possession after claim.

As we release new titles, collections, and tournaments, Passes will continue to stack value upon value over time. They will remain a source of power — in the form of exclusive access, gameplay boosts, and other surprises.

While we can’t make decisions for you, we do strongly encourage you to hold onto your InfiniPasses after claiming (wink, wink).

Community Merge got off to a howling start with Wolf Game featuring two tournaments from September 16th – September 27th. Wolves, Sheep, Farmers and Gods came together over an eleven-day period to compete in the first ever ‘Community Merge’. Open to holders of >1000 $WOOL or InfiniPasses, individual players merged their way through battle in pursuit of a Wolf & 10ETH+ of Woolish prizes.

It was a calm, sunny afternoon on the farm in the Wolf Game Universe. The Shepherd could be seen tending to the lands of High Stakes as Sheep frolicked in the pastures nearby. It was too early in the day to hear the Wolves howling away, as they rarely did prior to dusk fall. Suddenly, ominous clouds began to appear accompanied by a thunderous crackle. The Shepherd and the animals had never heard such reverberations on the farm before. They both looked to the Heavens of the Metaverse with great anticipation…

Odin (Norse God) visits The Shepherd in the Wolf Game Universe

Odin, God of Norse, had traveled through the Metaverse bearing a special message for The Shepherd. A token of appreciation, if you will, for all The Shepherd has done to cultivate Wolf Game and the Metaverse beyond.

With the wielding of Gungir, his trusted spear, Odin summons the Merge board from the Heavens.

A special tournament amongst Sheep, Wolves and Farmers was in order. The stakes high. The competition fierce. The fun everlasting.

Odin & The Shepherd reveal the tournament prizes (Farmers, Land, Sheep, $WOOL and a Wolf)

The tournament would be split into two phases:

The first, an individual competition, and the second, requiring teamwork in a Pack-based competition.

 

Tournament #1 — An Individual Competition

Tournament #1 was free to play and open to holders of Community Passes, Ultimate Passes, and ≥1000 $WOOL. All eligible holders automatically received 5 plays/day.

Players also received bonus plays for holding InfiniPasses.

  • Community Pass = +5 plays/day per pass
  • Ultimate Pass = +100 plays/day per pass

These bonuses were stackable. More passes = more chances to score big and increase your odds of winning prizes.

(Note: InfiniPasses can be minted for .05ETH at https://infinipass.xyz/)

SCORING & PRIZE RAFFLE: We believe in rewarding skill, while providing opportunities for all players to win. To that end, prizes were awarded using a hybrid raffle system. InfiniMerge leaderboard rankings determined the base # of raffle tickets awarded, plus bonuses for InfiniPass holdings.

  • Community Pass = +1 raffle ticket per pass
  • Ultimate Pass = +5 raffle tickets per pass
  • All tickets and InfiniPass bonuses were stackable.

For example: if you placed 3rd and held 10 Community Passes, you earned 20 tickets for the prize raffle.

Note: Holders must’ve played at least 1 round of InfiniMerge to activate InfiniPass benefits and gain prize eligibility.

 

Tournament #2 — A Pack Based Competition

In homage to Alpha Game, Tournament #2 was a team-based competition.

Play as a pack, win as a pack, share the $WOOL winnings. The rules were very simple:

  • Contenders were required to deposit 1000 $WOOL to gain entry.
  • Contenders selected a pack to represent during gameplay. Packs corresponded to each of the 14 Alpha Wolves.
  • The average score of all contenders (best score) in a given pack determined that pack’s score.
  • The pack with the highest average score won Tournament #2.
  • To the victors go the spoils. All deposited $WOOL was distributed evenly amongst contenders from the winning pack.

There was 220,000 $WOOL deposited in total, and the winning pack had 8 members.

Each contender won 27,500 $WOOL.

 

An Evening to Remember

At the conclusion of the event, members from two of the greatest communities in Web3 joined together for an Awards Ceremony that was streamed live via Discord & Twitch. Community members rejoiced as experiences were shared and prizes awarded.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the first ever Community Merge event (especially the lucky prize winners) and we look forward to sharing our next Community Merge event!

— The InfiniGods Team

Everyone reading this is part of the new frontier. Artists, collectors, developers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and gamers all play a role as builders of the internet of the future. We all come from different walks of life with different specific interests. However, it is our feeling of fellowship, because of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals around digital asset ownership that makes us one Web3 Community.

This new world has ushered in tremendous talent; with it has come brilliance, creativity, determination, and passion. The possibilities and opportunities in front of us feel somewhat endless and generationally meaningful. Infrastructure is being built, IP is being developed and with it has come the emergence of the brands of the future.

We believe developing and growing the space is win for all of us. Building connections and learning from one another at this stage in our collective journey is critical for the long-term success of our ecosystem. Therefore, we are developing an initiative we call, “Community Merge”.

Leveraging our experience building games for the last 25+ years, we are going to select at least one community/project per calendar quarter to develop an interactive, playable experience based on our first working game title, InfiniMerge. These projects can range from CC0 to IP Protected, in which case we will purchase NFT’s to have the right to develop the in-game art/characters. Gameboards, music selection, and reward prizes will all correlate to the underlying selected community to enhance the player experience.

These will not serve as “official collaborations” with other communities/projects and there is no revenue sharing between or amongst the project founders. This is strictly for the benefit and pure enjoyment of NFT holders from the selected communities.

We look forward to building great experiences and games for our collective community, Web3.

— The InfiniGods Team

Who can participate in Community Merge events?

InfiniPass holders and holders of the selected community’s native token will be eligible to participate in Community Merge. Event announcements will include details around native token eligibility.

When will the first Community Merge event be held?

Prior to the end of Q3! Stay updated on Twitter & join our Discord for all the latest announcements on rules and prizes.

How often will there be a Community Merge?

At least once per quarter — there are so many amazing communities that we want to build experiences and games for, but we have to maintain a fair production schedule to balance our focus on continuing to develop & execute our full game development.

Are Community Merge events free to play?

Yes — while it is required to hold an InfiniPass or a native token from the given Community selected for the event, there is no additional fee to participate in the event. This is a chance for collectors to have an interactive and fun experience with their favorite assets.

What type of prizes are available and who is eligible to win?

Here is where Community Merge gets even better — the event prizes will be assets from the selected Community and everyone who participates is eligible to qualify to win! Have fun and potentially add to your collection at the same time!

We are excited to officially announce our first InfiniGods Ultimate Drop collaboration! To commemorate the launch of InfiniGods’ Immortal NFT Series, all Ultimate InfiniPass holders will be airdropped an extremely rare (1/260) Gen 0: Elder God designed by Sloth.

Who is ‘Sloth’?

Timmy Ham, aka ‘Sloth’, is an artist, designer, illustrator and muralist, who has worked with Fortune 500 Brands and most recently Web3 Bluechip, VeeFriends. He is passionate about gaming and slowing down to appreciate all the things life has to offer.

Will this release be a part of any existing InfiniGods Collection?

Yes — this release will be residing within the Gen 0: Elder Gods Collection, alongside the other Elder Gods being released this Fall. Like the others in the collection, the InfiniGods x Sloth tokens will be ERC-4907s.

Will the NFTs be airdropped or will there be a mint?

Ultimate InfiniPass holders will be airdropped (1) InfiniGods x Sloth Elder God per pass held. These are available exclusively to Ultimate Pass holders.

Please note: OpenSea is now hiding airdropped items with their new updates — read this thread for more details to make sure you don’t miss your airdropped NFT.

What info can be shared around the art and rarity elements?

We are thrilled to have Sloth as our signature artist for this release. There are four distinct NFT versions, each featuring a God from a different Pantheon (all wallets will share the same odds, chosen at random):

  • Poseidon (Greek)
  • Odin (Norse)
  • Ra (Egyptian)
  • Guanyin (Chinese)

While we don’t want to give away too much, you can expect the illustrations to include vibrant colors backed with inspiration from street art and adventure.

InfiniGods x Sloth Gen 0: Elder Gods Collection (Odin, Norse)

Will the NFT contain any utility elements tied to the InfiniGods Universe?

Yes— the InfiniGods x Sloth Elder Gods will carry formidable in-game utility. The Elder Gods (Gen0) provide special abilities that enhance gameplay and boost scoring potential. These power-ups are only available to Elder God holders.

As our genesis collection, they will forever be the most powerful NFTs in the InfiniGods Universe.

Do Ultimate Pass holders receive another Gen 0: Elder God via Airdrop?

Yes, Ultimate Pass holders will receive an additional four (4) Elder Gods via Airdrop to go along with their unique Sloth Elder God.

We hope you are as excited as we are that Sloth designed a special number of our Gen 0 collection! Look out for information on Twitter @InfiniGods to receive updates as the drop executes.

May the Gods always be in your favor!

InfiniGods, a blockchain-based game development studio, announced Thursday that it raised $9 million in seed funding.

Pantera Capital led the funding round. Additional participants include Framework Ventures, Jefferson Capital, Animoca Brands and Double Peak.

InfiniGods creates web and mobile games involving mythological elements, with gameplay including puzzles, strategy and city building. The startup intends to use the seed funding to publish three games in 2022 that include a non-fungible token (NFT) with in-game utility in addition to developing a governance token.

Co-founders Damon Gura and Owen O’Donoghue told The Block that InfiniGods focuses primarily on user experience when building its blockchain-based games, and is particularly keen on onboarding gamers into Web3. However, the firm still intends to scale its blockchain-based financial systems sustainably and tapped economists to help their growth.

O’Donoghue worked for 11 years at Facebook (now Meta) developing the firm’s gaming arm and helping game developers launch, monetize and scale their games. Damon Gura has worked in the gaming industry for 25 years, founding the international social and mobile gaming firm DGN Games in 2014.
