Gold Fever guide: How to play and earn
Turn virtual gold into real dollars with this free-to-play, play-to-earn survival game.
What is Gold Fever?
Gold Fever is a blockchain-based NFT (non-fungible token) game with the ability to seamlessly marry traditional in-game economies with real-world finances through cryptocurrency. It achieves this through first developing a game concept that gamers will respond to. The game is developed on the Unreal Engine 4 software which allows the creation of an immersive world filled with jungles, mountains, rivers and traps. It is truly a game designed for gamers. Gold Fever is breaking new ground in its ability to introduce an entire industry to the world of cryptocurrency, using gaming as its vehicle. It allows gamers the ability to do the one thing they have always dreamed of doing – make money playing the games they love. The potential for Gold Fever is immense, as it gets ready to launch its Beta later this year.
The gameplay of Gold Fever
Gold Fever is primarily a fight over the limited resource of Native Gold (NGL) between 2 factions: Tribals and Adventurers. There are small amounts of NGL released across the whole map. Players may purchase mining claims that are small portions of the map that yield higher amounts of NGL. A player who purchases a mining claim creates the rules for that area. These are timed areas where the player who purchased the mining claim receives the amount of NGL that was successfully mined by the Adventurers. Another group called the Tribals will try to prevent the Adventurers from mining the NGL. The player who owns the mining claim can incentivise Adventurers to mine in their area through offering them a portion of the successfully mined NGL. This creates a micro economy within the game itself. These game mechanics allow for an immersive experience but also the ability to decide how you want to play Gold Fever.
The 2 factions (the Adventures and the Tribals) each have a few options for different roles with different abilities.
Gold Fever’s in-game economy is divided into 4 different tokens, each providing a different function.
This is the traditional in-game currency that one would expect to find in most games today. It can be bought with local currency and is used for microtransactions. It provides a core layer of financial stability for the game, and enables Gold Fever to be launched and played through the Steam gaming platform. It allows gamers unfamiliar with cryptocurrencies an easy-on ramp into the game’s other tokens, and access to the 120 million Steam users.
Native Gold (NGL)
This is the most important token for the in-game mechanics. NGL is at the heart of the game and what players compete for. It is a fungible ERC20 token and is able to be bought or sold on exchanges. Players are able to lock their NGL for temporary rights and privileges or burn NGL for permanent benefits including discounts, exclusive items, exclusive events, mining claims and starting guilds. Players can also rent items and equipment from other players if they do not have enough NGL to purchase the items themselves using NGL. It is unlocked through mining in the game for Adventurers or by killing the Adventurers and destroying their equipment by the Tribals.
Julius’s Brain (JBR)
This is the governance token that is periodically airdropped to players. The airdrop is based on reputation, providing liquidity to the pool, players rights acquired and more. JBR will be used for decision making on how the game will progress. It is also an ERC20 token.
Non-fungible ERC1155 tokens
These NFTs can range from your character (Adventurer or Tribal), artefacts and other rare items in the game. The NFT tokens can be borrowed, traded or sold on external platforms such as OpenSea. They are unique and can accrue in value from events that occur in-game, for example a famous battle that occurs in-game can increase the value of a weapon or character.
