After our announcement at Hivefest, we are happy to announce Unsung Hero is coming to the Hive Blockchain!

For those of you who missed us at Hivefest, you can see all the info below as well as some pictures from the Hivefest presentation!


Please welcome, SLOW SUNDAY GAMES! Why Slow Sunday? Well, simply because we will focus mainly on idle games that do not require the player to actively play every day in order to receive rewards. Play when you can on your own time. All this while still making progress and earning rewards. Keeping it simple, keeping it slow, like Sundays.

Since we are a new company and just getting our feet wet with gaming on the chain we will start off with an idle game. For those of you who might not know what idle games are, it is where you set up your gaming environment and let the game kind of plays itself. There are things to do that will make you play the game more actively but overall it will be making progress by itself based on how you told it to perform.

Those of you who know idle or clicker games might feel right at home. This will be less clicking and more idle with some light RPG elements. We decided to not go the clicker game route to prevent automated clicking and bots from taking over and giving some players an unfair advantage. Since liquid hive will be received as rewards we aim to make this as fair as possible for every player.

The gameplay is pretty simple, you are the Hero and you have to make progress to higher levels by facing and defeating monsters. As you advance to a higher level you will unlock new monsters, new areas, and some other surprises.

4.png

5.png

Everyone will receive their hero when they start playing. There will be four tiers of heroes so the higher your tier, the more damage your Hero delivers.

Only one Hero will be dealing damage to the monsters, so make sure you equip your strongest one.

The higher your hero’s Tier the more perks they will have to help you in your never-ending battle! What if you have multiple Heroes? Upgrade! Yes, if you have two heroes of the same tier you can combine them to make an even stronger hero.

In the end, DPS is king and it will decide how many levels you will complete!

6.png

One last thing to remember when playing with your Hero, the longer he fights by your side, the more powerful he will grow by slowly increasing his DPS bonus, once he leaves your account all his bonus DPS will be lost! So, think wisely before transferring a hero or selling it on the market. This also means that the players who start early on might have a slight advantage if they stick to their hero from the very beginning.

7.png

Now that we talked about our Hero, let’s see what he will be facing! Monsters, monsters, and more monsters! In the beginning, you might only encounter one monster, but as you reach higher and higher levels, you will unlock and face more powerful and different monsters.

Every time you kill a monster you will complete a level and move up to a slightly more difficult level. Every tenth monster will be a little different though, it will have substantially more health and there will be a time limit for killing it. This can be seen as the BOSS TIMER. Fail to kill the boss within the allocated time and you will return to the previous level. In the end, this will determine your max level that you can clear and help determine your overall rank.

9.png

As you can see there will be different areas where you will be facing your monsters. This will not really have a massive impact on the gameplay but it will make it a bit more interesting when you move on to newly unlocked areas.

10.png

As of now, there are 21 weapons in the game. They will determine your Base Damage. So the damage and perks from your Hero and items will give you your overall Damage per Second.

Weapons are items and will have different levels of rarity. Lower level weapons will be weaker and quite easy to get, while the most powerful weapons can be extremely rare.

11.png

While your hero might have a cool weapon we know you also need some neat gear to help you on your monster-slaying adventures! That is why there are more than 60 Unique items. All of them will give you one or more special perks to help increase your overall Damage Per Second. These perks range from

Attack Speed

DPS Multiplier

Crit Hit Chance

Crit Hit Damage

Boss Timer

Base Damage

Skill Cooldowns

Every item will be of a specific quality, so you might have two of the same items, but one will most likely be stronger than the other. Combining items together will make them stronger and increase their overall quality until they reach their maximum potential.

12.png

Talking about skills, you never know when you might need a little extra push to defeat a Boss Monster. We got you covered! There will be four main skills that can be equipped and used during your battles.

Most of these skills will give you a significant boost but only last for a short time. After you used them they will have a cooldown. So use them sparingly!

13.png

The user interface might look quite familiar to many gamers out there. Here you will be able to see all your items and weapons that can be equipped on your Hero. They will all work together to give you the most DPS possible. There will also be some stats about your gameplay and the bonuses from items.

14.png

Just like many other games on the chain, you will receive rewards for playing. We decided that 50% of all sales, post payouts, and curation will go towards the reward pool. From there we will have daily hive payouts to all the top-ranking players.

There will be a rank system that will determine who is the ultimate hero.

Initially, we were going to look at completed levels to determine rank, but we know that leaves many loopholes for abuse since players could easily transfer their items to other accounts once they reached a high level on a specific account.

Thus, your rank will be determined by a formula where we use total DPS and MAX LEVEL COMPLETED to work out what your final rank will be. This will hopefully make sure we keep it as fair as possible. That way if a player moves all their items to another account their DPS will drop and affect their overall rank

We will possibly keep tweaking the ranking system as we move forward into live testing, rest assured though we will try our best to avoid any kind of abuse or farming.

Hero tokens will also be awarded on a daily basis according to your rank. The higher your rank the more tokens you will receive.

Release Date and Pricing

With 2020 finally, in our rearview mirror, we are aiming for an early 2021 release. Coding is almost done and we will start testing within the next month or two, once we collected enough data while testing, we can move forward and launch the Beta of Unsung Hero.

For those of you who would like to help test, please send me(@scrooger) a DM on Discord or a message to our hive wallet and I will get in touch as soon as testing starts.

The game will be playable once you purchase a starter pack, which will be $10. In your starter pack, you will receive your first Hero, 1 weapon as well as 15 random items. This will be totally random so best of luck!

After you have your starter pack, you can start playing and earning rewards. If you want to buy more items they will be 4 Hive per item. The item pool includes Heroes, weapons, items, and stones.

16.png

Something we are really excited about is getting to share the game with everyone, but by this, we do not only want to share but also include people. So area and monster designs will also be a competition we will host where the community can submit their artwork and then we can possibly add it to the game. More details about that later...

Big thank you for the names mentioned above! You have all played your role in making this a reality and we really appreciate it!


For those of you who could not attend Hivefest, here are some pictures of the actual presentation.

What a cool idea, all the best! Interested, count me in (50 HIVE sent) :)

Much appreciated, also have you down as one of the testers. Will be in touch!

How to take part in your game testing?I want to play your game,too.

Looking forward to giving this a go. The game concept reminds me a lot of EOS Knights, a game I enjoyed playing until I was hit with EOS network congestion, and then a change to resource allocation ruling me out. It's going to be good to have a game like this on a chain which doesn't have those issues prevalent.

A DPS multiplier tied to a non-transferred Hero will be interesting. Some 'quick' questions:

  • Will this apply as a blanket DPS to the heroes base attack, or multiply after bonused from weapons/items?
  • Depending on the weight this multiplies has on gameplay, have you considered if it will need to be non-linear? Could be discouraging to Day 100 new players if they have the best items, though a Day 1 player with average gear is climbing higher.
  • Do you have a Discord server set up for SlowSundayGames?

Thanks and have a good day 👍

Ooh, I loved EOS Knights too!

  • This will be after all items bonuses have been calculated (for now).

  • The bonus will be based on kill count and it is not too strong, the HODL mechanic is really very long term so this will not discourage new players too much. This is still something we need to look at in testing. Since you are a tester you could look into it and then raise your concerns on the Discord channel once we start testing.

  • Not yet... But soon!

Feel lucky to have you on the testing team, asking the right kind of questions! =)

@scrooger, Great idea for the game. How to find you in the discord, I want to take part in testing.

Hi @cranium

It is scrooger [Qurator - Witness]#6295 on Discord but if you have trouble finding me, try joining the Qurator Server and then search for me around there. Might be easier. =)

You don't see my reply??

cheers, and merry Christmas

I am in, too!! 😅

Hab zwar keinen Tau wie es gehen wird,
aber du oder einer von hier wird es uns schon noch genauer erklären wenn es soweit ist!

lg 🤠

Looking forward to playing this. Have a great weekend.

Thank you, will contact you once we get it tested! Have a good one!

This reminds me of clicker heros 2 but on hive. so. I'm sold. Count me in.

Have to say that Clicker Heroes had a role to play in the initial design, so we hope we can live up to it. Truly was a fun game to play. =)

@scrooger what is your tag on discord? :)

Hi @cwow2

I'm game! all the best

Awesome, thank you!

i am really expecting this game! i am so hyped and i really like the part that you try to cut abuse/cheats before it even starts!

also i like that you gonna invovle the community like with the art creation!

We try for sure, we realised once there is money involved people will always try and find a way to automate it, not always that great for players who just want to have fun and play fair.

We can't wait to get the community involved. I know as a player seeing ones own content in a game is amazing so we hope to get tons of designs and add them to the game. Hope people enter and help out!

I am always up for more forms of passive fun on the blockchain! Sold some Blurt for Hive so I could be part of the early bird club.

Looking forward to playing this and Happy Holidays!🎄

Hehehe, you get it. ;) Why not have fun while also making some money, right!?

Exactly. Also, I kind of need to, as crypto is my life / work / play and so on :<)

That was a nice speech and I like what you do.

Love to betatest and have some more ideas. Let try to find time for a chat/call

50 HIVE Sent!

Thanks, was the first time delivering a speech like that, was nerve wrecking but pretty fun as well! Yeah for sure, let's get in touch, already thinking of how we can work together on something. =) Might be easier to decide once we get testing, will keep in touch about that once we start testing.

Your presentation definitely hooked me, since I've already sent the 50 Hive to reserve my starter pack! Can't wait to play this and shake some of the rust off my gaming skills (well, not that I was ever all that skilled...lol).

Hi Traci! This idle games genre is very easy to pick up and start with as a new gamer. Really looking forward to all of us playing together and competing for higher ranks! ;) Good luck!

Great! There was just so much to say and so little time, I went of script more times than I can remember. =P

Luckily it won't be that difficult to play so you will do just fine!

See ya at the launch!

You had me at 'announcement'!

50 HIVE Sent!

Much appreciated! We will look for you in the rankings once we go live. ;)

Day by day #hive is becoming big and more big, this is great. 😁🙏🚀👌

Great indeed, hope we can help get some more people on board as well!

I look forward to this game. Your presentation was excellent. A greeting and many successes.

Thanks a ton! We really appreciate it. Looking forward to testing and the launch!

I am going to add this one too into my huge post! My gosh, so happy to see the #HIVEGames boosting across #HIVE. That's exactly what I was wishing to happen.

Looking forward to this.

Hahaha, Yeah the slides does make it look super long. =P Thanks and hope to see you around when we launch! =)

I will be there mate... and once able, I will spread the word throughout a couple of people I know they like games too.

Welcome to the Hive ecosystem champs. I wish you good fortune in the wars to come

Thank you so much!

Nicely done lads, will keep a eye on :D

Please do, we are eager to get it going and start playing!

very cool! any way to invest in the company?

We need an answer to this.

I would gladly support!

Appreciate it, but not anytime soon.

Not something we are considering now, but thank you for the interest. We still need a lot of testing and tweaking before we can actually see a balanced version of the game. So all in good time.

So excited about this new game on Hive and cannot wait to start playing, once it's launched! Also, feel great about being among the very first ten people who pre-ordered the starter pack! :D

Always an early investor! ;) Can't wait to hear what you think, oh, I forgot, will you take part in the testing phase?

Yes, I would love to help test the game. Cannot wait! :D

50hive sent. Nice idea and concept. Cheers

I'm in since yesterday. I wish you the best luck in the world.

Appreciate it, crunch time now to get it done and playable. =)

I am most definitely in!

Awesome! Putting you down for a tester as well if you are keen to help out, will reach out when testing starts then you can decide. =)

I'm looking forward to helping test the game.

sounds cool guys!

Sent my 50 hive just for the fun of it!

Great, thank you!

Just sent 50 Hive! Looks interesting! Can't wait until the game is released!

Still some time before we release but appreciate the early buy-in! Have fun later when we go live!

Hey @slowsundaygames, I sent 50 hive now, I think I'm within 24h yet :)
can you confirm?
thank you!

It looks like fun. Sent the 50 hives.

Gotcha, thank for helping out with the testing as well. =)

I am a fan of Blockchain games and I want to play this one so Hive sent.

Oh no, just missed it! 😢

Ahhh... Bummer indeed, but we will have some other promotional events so just stick around and keep an eye out for announcements. =)

I will keep an eye on it! 👀
Thanks 😄

I send 50 Hive, is it possible to get them back?

Oh yeah sure, sorry, forgot about that one. =)

YESSSS!!! It's great to see more games coming to HIVE. The more we have the more new people we can onboard and keep interested.

I love the look of this and look forward to playing it.

All power to Hive games!!

Jux.

YESSSS, Indeed! Much appreciated coming from an already established game here on Hive! Looking forward to your thoughts when it goes live. Thank you

Welcome to the Hive family! I'm going to follow so I can stay up to date on the progress of this game. Also, did you say testing? I'd love to be Beta tester.

And tester you will be, will add you to the list and get in touch once we start testing. =)

Where can I buy a starter pack? I know I missed the discount, don't mind paying the 10$ just don't know where to do it.

Will have to wait for when the testing is done and the game goes live. Hopfully early next year if all goes according to plan. =)

I see people sending 50 HIVE now. Am I supposed to do that if I wish to test? I thought you'd want the $10 closer to the testing date so that the value was $10 at time of testing lol

Hi hi, the 50 Hive was only a Hivefest promotion for 24 hours. That only secures your starter pack at a discount. The testing will not use the purchased starter packs.

I don't really use Discord but I'd love to be a tester.

Thanks for the offer, but we already met our goal for testers.

This looks very interesting!
Do you guys already have a homepage?
And what is going on with the 50HIVE that people are sending to your account?
When does the pre sale of the starter pack starts?
thx

No homepage just yet, the pre-sale of discounted starter packs was a once off special only during Hivefest. We are approaching testing and only after all that is done will we go live on our main site. Will just have to wait until then. =)

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

This looks really cool, can't wait for it to start!

A slight consideration, I see that items will be priced at 4 hive, but have you considered pricing in HBD, hives native "stablecoin"? I think that's fairer for you and the players since you have more predictable income/price of things 😎 ✌️

We appreciate the input, we have given this quite a bit of thought. We know most people have hive and find it easier to use hive. So, we will stick to that for now. If however there are some big changes in the price of hive we might move to a USD model where items will have a certain value and people can pay with hive or HDB.

Yeah it's kind of a catch 22 because there's not a lot of stuff that uses HBD so people don't use/hold it. I think a lot of people don't realize also that you can easily convert between the two with the on chain market which is really fast and painless.

Posted via D.Buzz

You are right indeed! We will continue with our 4 Hive plan for now, but will move to a more stable system later. We think that will be best for us and the players. Less confusion in the long run. That way, the site will calculate the price and they can just easily sign the transaction with hive Keychain or send the Hive/HBD manually. We will look into this more, thanks again for reaching out to us about this concern. =)

so happy to see something like this on hive thank you this type of looter rpg

You are most welcome, hope people will like it. =)

when this game will be released?

Just saw this. Shame I missed the 50 hive presale, but I am following so I don't miss the next. Looking forward to hearing more!

So are we! The coding and testing takes time though...
