TODO

Monetisation


An unintrusive way to monetise the game so that we can continue to develop more fun games for you to play and pay for servers. Ideas for Monetisation

  • Season Pass
    • Access the the current season's content.
      • Cosmetic items, challenges, etc.
    • The season length is TBD (most likely will be 3, 4, or 6 months. This may vary from season to season and the price will reflect as such).
    • Ads removed
      • The rewards for all reward based ads will automatically be given when an ad would normally occur
  • Optional Reward Based Ads
    • Ads that if the player watches, will get some kind of award like 2x Coins, 2x XP, an extra item, etc.
    • These will only be available if the player DOES NOT own this season's pass.
    • If the player DOES OWN this season's pass, they will automatically be given the reward without watching an ad
  • Loot Boxes, Mystery Boxes, Crates, Chests, Surpise Mechanics, or whatever else you want to call it
    • LOOT BOXES WILL NOT BE MONETISED
    • We aren't building a casino
    • Loot boxes might exist in the game, but as an in game item only.
      • This is only if we (and you) determine it is a fun part of the game experience
      • We have personally always enjoyed the thrill of the surprise, but we despise the monetisation aspect of it
    • In no way, shape, or form will we monetise lootboxes
