[Proposal] Launch Exverse project on NEAR


My name is Alexander Chernov, I am the founder of the Exverse project and with my partner Nikita Uriupin we want to introduce the project we have been working on for the last six months.


It’s time to make GameFi graphic engrossing with AAA-quality, using Unreal Engine technology.
GameFi is not only about earning, it’s also about PLAYING too.
Our mission is to reach a new level in GameFi and allow users to get the maximum joy of the game itself. From card/browser/turn-based games aimed for the Earn part of P2E to the next-level gaming with 3D worlds and AAA-quality graphics focused on the Play part too.

Game Concept

Exverse - is a massively multiplayer 3D third-person shooter in the Battle Royale genre with Play&Earn mechanics, combining competitive game modes in different worlds.

The battle royale genre is a mix of last-man-standing gameplay with survival, exploration, and scavenging elements.

The mechanics of the project allow players to trade and improve in-game values: weapons, characters, unique abilities and compete for rare items to exchange them in the NFT marketplace and use them to advance in the leaderboard.

Play and Earn mechanics

Activity to Earn
Time-Staking: global player activity index. It’s based on a variety of indicators of player behavior in the game, including competition with other players, completing tasks/quests, discovering new game seasons, and trading NFTs.

Fight to earn
Defeat the enemy and get better-equipped for the next battle.

Collect to earn
Explore the infinite worlds. You never know what kind of legendary item you can find during your journey.

Quest to earn
Deal with mystic quests, tackle tricky riddles and collect huge uncommon or legendary items.
