Development of Optimus Chain is in two phases.
Phase one: Built on the Ethereum network. Optimus Chain will facilitate the easy hybridization of conventional games. It will serve as a layer 2 solution for game development. Interaction of gaming applications with the Ethereum network will result, this will allow game developers to semi-decentralized game platform and assets even while game application is off-chain.
Phase two: At this stage, Optimus Chain would evolve into it’s own blockchain and as such, a layer 2 connector with layer 2 sub-networks. Cyclops Game intend to use a hybrid of Directed acyclic graph (DAG) and blockchain technologies to develop a fast, highly scalable, cost effective gaming solution.
Optimus Chain phase 1 will continue to be developed concurrently with a few of the features that are being developed
Hephaestus workshop is Cyclops Games all-in-one Asset Marketplace and Factory. Users can do the following: Trade valuable nonspeculative game assets. They are nonspeculative because these assets have their prices pegged to a price-demand curve. This makes the value of these assets dependent on the demand for them.
Creation and deployment of custom NFT game assets in few easy steps. This is also one of the main features of Hephaestus workshop. By using Cyclops Game native token (CYTR), any user of Hephaestus workshop will be able to deploy theirs.
Another important feature is the ability for users to create their own asset stores and trade their custom assets.
Version 2.0 will include the Factory functionality and also the store creation feature. Version 2.0 deployment planned for Jan. 2021.
The Tournament is a yearly gaming competition organized by Cyclops game, it is designed to bring gamers from all over together to compete virtually. The first ever Tournament will hold in early 2021 and will be hosted on Cyclops Game platform. Some of the games that will be part of the event are a PVP fighting game, a human chess game and a creature race.
The Tournament is also is an app that is an integral part of the Cyclops Game platform. It is subsection of the platform where game deployed can be browsed and played. On the Tournament app, users will also be able to deploy game contracts anytime and invite user to join to compete.
The first true, value backed Block of Fame will be deployed on the Cyclops Game platform. This allows the greatest of the greatest to be represented and ranked based on their contribution to the blockchain evolution. Their contribution will be ranked by a value metrics. There will also be a voting and a custodian mechanism that governs its operations.
Though the full adventure may not be ready before the tournament, the PVP fighting game in which the characters of the treasure island are used will be deployed
The most important inbuilt game that will be seen and can be played on the Cyclops game platform is Treasure Island. It is an adventure game where players hunt/search for actual tressures. Every level completed by a player request to some amount of reward paid to the player. For players to play, a player will have to first buy a game character, weapons, passages access and creatures. With this, the quest begins.
This phase will be part of The Tournament app. Owners of assets will be able to stake assets thereby making them available for the Tournament.
Game mechanism is such that the availability of characters of game on the game is dependent on how many of that same character exist on the blockchain. The owner of such game asset has to make the asset available by staking the assets on the blockchain layer. Assets staked are then made available on the game layer.
Cyclops Game’s goal is to provide its users with the best universal solutions for asset management and storage. In this light, we will be launching our own mobile wallet app, it will be designed to be the most NFT asset friendly wallet. It will support easy in-wallet transfers and also asset swapping. It will have features like asset performance and ranking on leader boards.
