Segment 1 — Introduction

[Ella]

Hello!

Hi Everyone! Hope you guys doing well😊

Today I am hosting an AMA session with the Decentralized Club.

My name is Ella and I will be hosting Paradise Tycoon in this session.

Let’s welcome our guest @harrikarppinen @TimoYouth

You’re welcome to Decentralized Club! It’s our pleasure to have you!

[Timo]

Thank you @ella_xoxoo the pleasure is all ours! 🌴 Glad to be here with you today👋

[Harri]

Hey all! Thank you @ella_xoxoo! It’s great to be here!

[Ella]

Helloo!☺️

Guests,

How’s was your day so far?

[Timo]

It’s been great, thank you! Sun is shining in Finland and what a better way to start the week than AMA on a great community like this!☀️

how about you?

[Harri]

Really good thanks! Last week we were in Nordic Game Conference meeting some nice game industry people! Really feeling energetic after the conference!

[Ella]

my day was great too! Thankyou for asking☺️

Can you introduce yourself to the Community ?

[Timo ]

Sure, I’ll go first.

I’m Timo, Co-Founder and COO of Empires Not Vampires, a games developer and publisher company in Finland that have designed, developed and published top 10 downloaded mobile games and worked with some of the biggest mobile games publishers. Last year after careful market research we made a strategic decision to start developing Play and Earn games and now we’re announcing Paradise Tycoon. Very happy to be here, and glad to see so many online!

[Harri]

I’m the CEO and also Co-Founder along with Timo. I’ve been working on games for almost two decades now and loving the enthusiasm of the whole blockchain community. I’ve been an avid gamer since my childhood (grew up with a C64 & NES) and love making games! To add to what Timo already said, our team is very experienced — we have a total of 70+ years of game development experience in the team and counting. We’ve shipped multiple titles together and are a battle-tested, efficient team.

[Ella]

Nice to meet you both🤩, Waaoo! It’s great☺️

Let me give you a quick overview of the session before we get started.

AMA is divided into three segments:

Segment 1️⃣: Introduction with Project team

Segment 2️⃣: 5 best Question from Twitter Gets Answered

Segment 3️⃣: DC group Chat will open for 1 minutes, Users ask their questions in Live session. Best 5 Telegram questions gets answered.

Kindly type”✅” after you are done answering!

Let’s get started! We are very interested in learning more about 🌴Paradise Tycoon🌴!

Q1. Can you start with brief description about Paradise Tycon and what inspired you to start this project?

[Harri]

Sounds great! Let’s gooooo! 🐠

[Timo]

Definitely! Paradise Tycoon is a beautiful online world where you can create your unique avatar and travel to an uninhabited island to build your personal paradise! You can expand to the lush tranquil lands that surround you or travel across the metaverse to become a Paradise Tycoon…

You can actively manage your crew, teach them new skills and equip them with the best tools to maximize production or just relax and create your own fun with your friends in a highly interactive world with endless possibilities, very polished 3D graphics and sustainable Play and Earn economy.

[Ella]

Q2. How can a player create a paradise, and gives us a little insight of the training camp at Paradise Tycoon?

Thank you🙏

[Harri]

There are a lot of ways to create your very own paradise island! Here’s some…

Players can collect resources and craft items to trade or bring your dreams to life by decorating and upgrading your home villa and beach, or build tools and production buildings!

So there will be a lot of customization options in the game

[Ella]

that must be fun to customize the game and build our paradise🤩

[Harri]

Yes indeed, who wouldn’t want to build their own paradise island!

About the Training Camp…

It’s a place where Crew Members can be taken to learn more about farming and getting better at what they do

After the NFT Crew Members have been staked into the Training Camp long enough, they get skill points that can be distributed freely among the stats the Crew Member has.

[Ella]

😍

it’s amazinggg🤩

Q3. How can a user obtain an MOANI token? What are the benefits?

[Timo]

MOANI token can be earned by trading crops and resources with NPC (non-player character) trader, with other players or by participating in events like Harvest Festival. Paradise Tycoon will have plenty of meaningful ways for the player to use the earned or traded tokens.The token can be used in-game to buy seeds, tools, consumables and other items from NPC merchants, to rent land or to trade with other players for resources that can be used for building, crafting or decorations and customizations.

Indeed, we have some events that are more competitive and some just for the community to have fun without competitive elements! In addition to in-game use, the tokens can also be staked for APY or with NFTs to level up crew members. The same token is also used for governance to vote at Town Hall on things that matter in Paradise Tycoon metaverse.

Here’s a image showing the ‘Tycoon’ side of the game. There’s a lot of things to do if you want to maximize your earnings. ✅

[Ella]

there will be events also! waaaooo🎉

Q4. what does paradise Tycoon marketplace offers the user?

[Harri]

We will have a marketplace for NFT sales like crew members and land.

The marketplace will show detailed description of what players will get, and allow players to browse through the catalogue to find exactly what they are after.

In addition to the NFT marketplace, I must add that we will also have a marketplace in-game, which is called “Auction House”.

In Auction House players can trade everything in-game which is not NFT, resources, tools, appliances, consumables, anything you can carry.

This will create a cornerstone of a healthy player driven economy.

[Ella]

Q5.Can you tell us about Paradise Tycoon forthcoming events and accomplishments it has made thus far?

[Timo]

Happy to! We’ve already released a closed alpha to selected investors and partners to try out. There’s also a lot of core tech already done as we’re moving towards building the actual metaverse.

Soon we’ll have a public Community Alpha coming out that will include an exciting and engaging challenges for the community with some nice prizes involved, so keep an eye on our community as it’ll be announced shortly!

After the Alpha, our next big milestones include IDO, NFT Crew & Land sales, Closed Beta with more gameplay and finally a Public Beta later this year.

Also we do weekly progress updates on our medium site, so don’t forget to check that out if you’re interested to know what’s going on! https://paradisetycoon.medium.com/paradise-tycoon-progress-update-7-2d149761d786

[Ella]

Great! Looking forward to it🤩

Here we come to the end of segment 1

Let’s now take some questions from our Twitter community!

🌴Make sure you follow Paradise Tycoon🌴

➡️ DISCORD: https://discord.gg/sWsNzUWCSb

Thank you🙏

1. Many games today set high costs to start the game. Does #ParadiseTycoon an entrance fee or starting conditions & if so, what are they? Do I need to hold an NFT or hold a certain number of tokens in order to enjoy & play the #ParadiseTycoon?

@Ripon64474125

[Harri]

Great questions!

That’s a super important question, thanks! Part of our mission is to introduce blockchain gaming to outside of crypto-native audience. Which means we need to ensure the on boarding of the game is as easy and quick as possible.

To achieve this, the game is designed so that players can start playing on browser, or their preferred platform immediately without connecting wallet or buying NFTs.

Of course, to actually earn something players will eventually connect their wallet and possibly buy NFTs but it will not be required from the start. ✅

[Ella]

2. In Paradise Tycoon, players can Build & expand lands and one of the interesting features is the “Harvest Festival” Can you tell us more about the Harvest Festival? What are the requirements to take part in the Festival? And what rewards can players get from this Harvest Festival?

@Lavana2016

[Timo]

Thanks @Lavana2016 for the question, absolutely. So like I mentioned earlier, the harvest festival is a fun community engaging event / competition where players gather specific crops and materials to the festival.

Participants will be rewarded based on their share of the total amount gathered. To be successful players need to manage their crew members, make sure their tools are intact, react quickly to event goals and manage logistics!

All the players are eligible to participate!

[Ella]

3. Is #ParadiseTycoon only support PC device? Will it be compatible with Android devices and also iOS ?Will it be released first in desktop version or mobile version?

@Mdpolash_Rahman

[Harri]

Thanks for the question @Mdpolash_Rahman! First of all, in development we’re using Unity which makes it super easy to develop for multiple platforms at the same time!

Our development team builds new, playable versions of Paradise Tycoon for WebGL and Windows every day.

That way we can playtest the game constantly and also make sure the performance of the game is good even on low end devices.

We’re looking forward to starting off with Windows & WebGL builds that already cover a lot of devices.

We’re also building towards mobile and other devices so we can maximize the audience!

We want to be super inclusive when it comes to devices!

[Ella]

[ 👌]

4. “#ParadiseTycoon”What are the main features of the project and how was it developed? Where does its core competitiveness lie? What advantages does it have that allow it to stand out in the market?

@Rifat2990

[Timo]

OK. Let me list 3 things that will make the game stand out:

1. The look & feel of the actual gameplay will have the same production quality as any successful mainstream game, and the user experience is carefully designed to make the game very entertaining.

2. The game design has unique elements that combines social features in the metaverse and free-to-play / play-and-earn mechanisms.

3. The game economy is sustainable, i.e. designed & balanced so that it keeps being lucrative and entertaining to players for years and years.

[Timo]

thanks, we have a super experienced and professional team working on them 🚀

[Ella]

5. How many team members do you have? Do they have enough experience in the blockchain field? Do they have any experience on working in crypto and non-crypto project?

@Shimul36171483

Yeeah,It gives the impression of actuality.

[Harri]

Thanks @Shimul36171483 for the question! As Timo just mentioned, we really have a great team working on the game ❤️

We currently have 11 people in the team + advisors, and are hiring more as we speak!

We have blockchain skills in our team and great advisors with a lot of experience from the blockchain scene

In practice our team has experience in developing both crypto and non-crypto projects. Some of our team members have been working on games amassing billions of installs.

And to emphasize, we’re a battle-tested team with a wide range of skills so we’re definitely ready to make Paradise Tycoon a huge success! 🔥

Also it’s important we’re having a lot of fun creating the opportunity for players to create their own fun!

[Ella]

Great!🔥

It’s an interesting game! i love it! Hope so our community loves it too🤩

[Harri]

[Ella]

Okaayy! We have got many questions from the audience 🤩

Take your time to choose the best 5 questions 🤩

[Harri]

Whoaaaaa awesome! :D

Yes! A lot of great questions, let us have a few mins and we’ll start answering :)

Q1. So I love the fact that Tycoon Paradise allows for Customisation as you earlier said,But its Quite sad that alot of Games today promise this but we never see this to fruition.So I’d like to know then,Just how far can we go with the Customisation of Avatars on Tycoon paradise?

Simply put,

Do you allow for full Customisation of Avatars??

[Kaptin BLack]

[Timo]

Hey Kaptin Black! We have actually already implemented quite a bit of the Avatar customization feature, and our community members will be able to try it out themselves soon in the Community Alpha.

Meanwhile, here’s a little preview… 😎

Q2. It is very important for game developers for their games to be available on as many platforms as possible. Is Paradise Tycoon available on appstore/playstore? Or can only be played on PC?

[Lavana2016]

[Timo]

You are absolutely right. Part of our mission is to reach out to a wider non-crypto native audiences, and to success we need to make the game available to everyone. Paradise Tycoon will be available for PC, Mac, Browser and mobile. We also have quite a bit of experience from optimizing games to multiple devices, so it should be smooth and good on most android devices out there.

[Ella]

It’s NIce🔥

Q3. Too many games are currently have some issues like Server lag , FPS drop , lagging ,bug ,hack ,error website and too many other problems ,

So how does #ParadiseTycoon prevent these problems on its game ? [Loba Po]

[Harri]

You’re correct, this is a big issue with a lot of games and we want to get it right! We have experience on making real-time multiplayer action games as well as scalable solutions for millions of players.

The experience we have helps us utilize best practices when it comes to mitigating issues with performance, hacking and cheat protection.

We also have great partners that expand our knowledge in these areas as well will be using auditors to make sure our smart contracts are good to go!

[Ella]

Greaaattt🔥🔥

Looking forward to it

Q4. Do you have anything cool to display for us or show us and what experience does the game advisors of your team have?[Bentayga]

@Zelafet

[Timo]

Here’s our advisory board. For more details go to https://paradisetycoon.medium.com/meet-the-team-behind-paradise-tycoon-part-3-advisory-board-6b7fe18de48b

AND for the “cool to display” part… gimme a sec…

While we wait for Harri to come up with the last answer. Another cool thing to look at, is the Twitter thread we just posted about Game Economy Sustainability, and how we succeed in it with Paradise Tycoon

https://twitter.com/ParadiseTycoon/status/1528731666432286722?s=20&t=75borJutdaDzqC62t7I9lQ

Q5. where do you see your project after one year from now ?

@morolibertas

[Harri]

After one year we’ve launched the game and we’ll be working on more content for the game to keep existing users happy and scaling up the userbase!

We’re looking forward to utilizing the performance marketing techniques we’ve been using previously to acquire millions of players. We want to see people come from mainstream games to Paradise Tycoon!

The way I see it, one year from now, we’ll be seeing great growth and a lovely, expanding game experience & metaverse!

[Harri]
