It's no secret that derivative projects and lacklustre artwork have overtaken the NFT world. Sometimes, these projects succeed due to their sheer utility; Other times, simple roadmaps, short-term hype, and bad leadership lead to their eventual downfall.
Once in a blue moon (which, to be honest, is every couple of hours in the NFTverse), we get blessed by a collection gunning for the top spot. These projects push the space to new frontiers.
I recently stumbled upon a collection that exceeds this criterion. Say hello to Egg Heads Club, a P2E mobile gaming platform with its roots in retro arcade games that we all know and love.
The Egg Heads Club world consists of Egg Heads (who would've thought?): Cute & pixelated NFTs that reside in the world of Eggtopia.
Let's first get into the artwork. I'm a sucker for pixelated art, and this collection meets everything I want in an NFT.
The first drop will be comprised of 3.5k generative items with over 200 components amongst nine properties. All NFTs are split into four different classes:
Since this is a P2E mobile game, Egg Heads also come with attribute scores across four different categories. The categories include:
- Health (Shell Strength)
- Attack Power (Force)
Each attribute has a maximum score of 40. Furthermore, special traits are associated with each Egg Head, which can be thought of as abilities in turn-based games or ultimates in MOBAs.
What stood out to me is the 2D gaming empire they're refining throughout development with the ultimate goal of expanding into the 3D metaverse further into the project's journey.
Yup, that's right! We're getting 3D Egg Heads in the Sandbox 🔥
The devs have already created and begun testing the first installment of their 2D arcade games: Egg Jump.
I won't get into the details of the game as it is quite simple to understand. You can see for yourself here ⬇️
There's an aspect that I have yet to talk about and is by far one of the most key features of the Egg Heads Club concept: The P2E mechanic. This will allow gamers to earn EggBux ($EGBX), a monetary ERC-20 token, for their leaderboard scores.
Simply put, as you compete against others for the number 1 spot on the leaderboard, you will earn $EGBX.
$EGBX will be released in Q2 2022 as a deflationary and finite governance token. Hearing this is music to my ears, as deflationary currencies naturally rise in price over time due to the reduced supply.
Holders will have a say in the project's outcome via a community DAO. There will also be other mechanisms introduced like:
The utility of $EGBX doesn't only come from its monetary value. As I've pointed out above, you can also redeem EggBux for tangible merch and breeding of second-gen Egg Heads, coming in Q3 2022.
There's even more. I won't lie to you when I say the depth of this project amazes me. They've included a mint roadmap with donations to a cause decided by the community and a digital story-book series.
They've also included IRL meetups and networking events for holders at the end of 2022. What more could you ask for? Egg Heads Club has everything you need.
This desire to become a staple NFT collection in the P2E gaming industry shouldn't go unnoticed. They've only just begun, but their extensive and comprehensive roadmap, vision, and development prove to me that they're in it for the long haul.
Oh, and one last thing: Just look at their website. It pops, it's easy to use, and most importantly, it's fun and unique.
As a student of business and design, seeing all these websites that have plagued the NFT world with their obnoxious colour palettes and insufficient use of basic design principles irritates me.
Like, c'mon... what is this 🤣?
I would recommend you join their community via their Discord. The devs are always active in chat, so don't be afraid to ask questions!
As always, WAGMI frens 🚀
