Game Theme & Background Story
The world as we knew it was flooded and destroyed by a 100 year rain. It was a slow rising flood, so millions of people were able to prepare and survive. During the time of this great flood, what remained of society lived on rusting away cruise ships, barges and makeshift boats and rafts. Many people enabled their houses to float, but violent ocean storms and nature has long since destroyed those.
It is now 30 years into the aftermath of the historical rain and floating islands that began to appear during the rain are becoming habitable. Pirates are the first to claim these islands and will sell them to the highest bidder.
You have to decide, how to start your story in Aftermath Islands. Will you be a land hopper? Do you buy your own island, or join others and rent or buy some land on a colonized island?
It’s up to the island owners, land owners and all people in Aftermath Islands, to rebuild a new land dwelling society.
Gather resources, scavenge for junk found on the island and washed up along the beach. All junk found will have a purpose in this new world. Store it, hoard it or sell it. Build your house, invite others to your island, fish, hunt and gather your food for energy. Build a whole kingdom together with others, research new technologies and be a part of this unique world!
Game Play & Features
When you start the game, pirates will take you to an island and drop you off at the beach. If you already own an island, or some blocks on an Islands you can choose to start there. The island will be raw, with overgrowth and nature running rampant. It’s up to the island owner to begin clearing land and paths for settlement, exploring the island to uncover the map view, scavenge for junk and collect resources. You first want to secure your shelter, food and water. Additional community shelter will need to be built to accommodate any new citizens to your island, until they are able to buy land and build their homestead. Additional community shelters built by the island owner can be reused for other new citizens to join the island.
After this initial step you and other players joining you will build up the island more and more. NPCs will travel around and appear on your island, offering quests, goods and support. You can build more and more buildings, which bring benefits and offer services on your island. Some will be led by NPCs and it could also be possible to run a shop yourself, as a manager. The island owner can define a marketplace where people trade and rent good spots for people to sell their goods. This in combination with a game wide Marketplace and other services, which people can offer.
It will be possible to form kingdoms and elect kings and queens with integrated governance structure and own currencies gaining more and more value as people in the kingdom play.
There will be different regions and factions in the game, offering special blueprints and resources to benefit players traveling through the whole world.
The game will offer a growing number of play styles, making Aftermath Island a very unique experience especially with the used blockchain technology making all tradeable and giving everything in the game a real value.
Island Owners – These players own an island. Besides owning and controlling an island, they have the same game play options as other players.
Land Owners – These players do not own an island, but own at least one block of land on one, or more, islands. Only citizens of an island (the land owners) are allowed to collect the natural resources of that island.
Island Hoppers – These are the players that do not own land, or an island. They are able to visit other islands, salvage things that they find and buy, sell & trade to other players on that island. They are not allowed to collect any natural resources from any island.
Pirates – Pirates are the game. Once every 14 days, a traveling pirate trade ship comes to the island and offers rarer items for sale, general salvage items and miscellaneous items.
Professions will play a huge role in the game, as they are the fuel of the whole economy.
Players will be able to choose one master profession and one hobby. Maybe there will be also skills for gathering different resources. Professions and hobby will have the potential to help you benefit and gain within the game. Wander islands looking for scavenge items, collecting resources and meet other players to trade anything you’re carrying. Players with a watercraft may visit any of the 10 random islands that surround the island they are on. The surrounding islands will change daily and are completely randomized. Players may scavenge the junk they find on any island, but are only allowed to collect resources from their home island.
All resources and scavenged items will serve a purpose in the game and can be sold, traded, or auctioned to other players. Use the items found to craft assets, based on your profession. You may also donate surplus items to your town hall to help build up your island society. Professions allow player to build assets required by other players for their professions or advancement.
The different regions and factions will have different weapons. Buildings and ships. You will be able to craft new styles and other stuff, to make your gear and other assets more unique and change its stats.
There will be guilds connecting people with same professions helping each other to get a mastery level and be able to build and craft very unique assets. A master in its profession will earn good traveling around and offering skills to kingdoms and other guilds. Guilds will have a governance as kingdoms and will be able to buy own islands and to build a head quarter there and they can also build guild houses in cities offering services.
The Pirate Shop is the game store where some specialized and limited numbered tokenized assets are purchased from the game, by players.
Not all assets will come from the Pirate Shop. A majority of the tokenized assets within Aftermath Islands will be created by players, using their professions. When players gather, or gain, the proper materials and craft an assets, they will be issued a token which may be used, sold or traded on the open market or auctioned off to the highest bidder. Not all crafted assets will be tokenized. It will be clearly stated which ones are.
Natural resources are not tokenized and are not limited in number.
There will be a lot of trading options for players, so the economy will shift to be mainly carried by the players.
PvP and PvE
There will be different areas in Aftermath Islands. Player owned Islands will be in the PvE area, others will not be able to destroy your buildings or to fight you. In addition, there will PvP be areas, where others can fight you and destroy your assets. Players can choose, if they want to take the risk for specials quests, items and resources. PVP will be added in a later state of the game, to offer advanced content for players.
Control Panel / Dashboard
The control panel is where all of your account information, town hall settings, game asset inventory, wallets, messages, transactions, friends list and game notices are viewed. Your account information, assets and game progress are saved and stored on the Tron block chain. Actual game play is off the blockchain, and is played on our private servers.
Map View Play
Map view play is used to navigate your island or properties owned, clear land, gather resources, locate friends on the island, build buildings and to watch your society grow. When first visiting an island, the island map will be dark. You will need to explore the island to uncover parts of the map. After full island discovery, then island maps are introduced to society and visitors will not need to explore to find their way around. Players will see a view of the entire island, then can click parts of the map for action options or to visit specific player lands. Owners will be allowed to zoom into their land and improve it by adding structures, gathering resources or farming.
Scavenge View Play
Scavenge view is the 3D world that you scavenge for junk in. Players will walk around in this 3D environment looking for random items to collect. If you encounter another player in Scavenge mode, you both will be able to buy, sell or trade, with each other, any items you are carrying. In future development, we will implement 3D player versus player battles, which take part in the already mentioned PVP areas or special places in PVE. There are also Ship fights planned.
Mini games will be played to hunt, fish, and to gather food and natural resources. There is no cost to play the games, but you must be carrying the required assets, tools or items on you to play. If you lack what is needed, the pirate overseeing the game can be bribed to let you play anyways, for a small fee. Bribes to the pirates for bonus won resources may be paid also in TRX at a rate of 1% bonus per 1 TRX, up to a 50% win bonus.
Island and Kingdom Battles
Islands and kingdoms will be passively competing weekly for “top” rankings for various categories. The winners will receive community resources and/or in game community assets. In future development, direct battles between islands will be an available game option, as well as 3D PvP battles. Winning islands of the battles will receive 10% of the community resources of the losing island along with game assets, given by Aftermath Islands. Islands may choose to opt out of these battles.
Daily Spin Wheel
Players will have a daily bonus wheel to spin for free resources and occasionally rare assets. The results of the spin will be completely random. Prize amounts range from common resources and refugee to rare NFTs.
10% of all partial profits are used to benefit users for playing the game. For example AIT will be bought on market and will be spread to all players in equal portions, which were active playing minimum of 4 hours on that week!
There will also be other player rewards and the island and kingdom completion prizes. The prizes will range from digital and blockchain assets to real world prizes.
