Aether Games x Avalaunch: Strategic Sale Announcement

 

Introduction to Aether Games

Aether Games is a pioneering transmedia studio focused on creating an immersive gaming and entertainment franchise for both Web2 and Web3 audiences. Its vision is to build out an interconnected ecosystem of games which allow players to use their gaming assets across multiple titles in the Aether universe. This element of game design has simply not been possible in traditional gaming and will be key to unlocking a whole new realm of experiences.

By seamlessly combining blockchain-enabled features, Aether Games is not only enhancing the gaming experience, but is also empowering players in a way that is also inclusive of traditional gamers. This approach ensures that Aether is accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

Aether Games: A Multi-Platform Universe

What makes Aether Games truly stand out is its commitment to creating experiences that spans various forms of media. Alongside a rich gaming ecosystem, Aether is also developing a cinematic series which aims to captivate audiences across multiple platforms and merge multiple experiences into a unified realm. By taking this innovative approach, Aether Games is able to immerse audiences in a deeper way whilst drawing more players to its games, resulting in an interconnected and diverse entertainment experience.

The Aether realm so far consists of:

  • Aether: Trading Card Game – The beta version is currently live on Epic Games.
  • Aether Saga – To enhance the universe and deepen player engagement, Aether Games is working on an interactive short story series which allows players to uncover the secrets of the world of Aether.

Aether: Trading Card Game

Set in a dark fantasy universe, Aether: Trading Card Game (TCG) is a captivating collectible card game that showcases stunning visuals and cinematic artwork. Players engage in strategic battles using a mix of Adventurers, Creatures and Cards, which each have their own unique mechanics. Leveraging the expansive array of stats and abilities, players can customize their decks and cards to fit their individual playstyles. Aether’s TCG combines the element of card collecting with deck building to allow players to engage in real-time online battles to earn valuable in-game rewards.

Utilizing Web3 features, Aether’s TCG greatly enhances the collectible card game genre by using NFTs to represent in-game assets, granting players true ownership in a genre where ownership is crucial. By unlocking this feature, players can then freely trade these assets in a player-driven economy.

The beta version is available to download on the Epic Games Store.

AEG: Powering the Aether Universe

AEG is the native token of Aether Games and facilitates all activities in the Aether universe, enabling a seamlessly integrated economy. AEG will be a multi-chain token and its utility includes:

  • Crafting – In Aether: Trading Card Game, players can use AEG to transform their plain cards into an NFT, granting players true ownership of their assets.
  • Nesting Heirlooms – Heirlooms are cross-game dynamic NFTs in the Aether universe. By nesting AEG within Heirlooms, players can adjust the level of their Heirloom to enable faster in-game progression. This feature also allows players to rent out their upgraded Heirlooms to other players.
  • Gas Usage – AEG will be used as the native gas token once the Aether Subnet goes live.
  • Transacting in Aether’s Marketplace – AEG will be used for all trading activity within the Aether universe and its upcoming marketplace.

Aether Games: Strategic Sale on Avalaunch

The Aether Games sale on Avalaunch represents a unique and strategic opportunity, distinct from a typical Initial DEX Offering (IDO). Unlike an IDO, the strategic sale is aimed at participants who see the potential in Aether games. The highlight of this sale is the offering price of $0.032 per token, which presents a significantly better value proposition compared to the upcoming public sale price of $0.045.

Aether has conviction in the broad distribution of the token and thus, has conducted some smaller private/public sales for this purpose, most significantly on TrustSwap this past December, with the large majority of this round sold privately. The Avalaunch offering comes closer to the Token Generation Event (TGE) while providing early access at a more advantageous price. Again, this opportunity precedes the public sale and serves not just as a means of raising funds, rather, its primary goal is to strengthen communities, increase visibility and to promote token decentralization prior to their official launch.

Participants in the Aether Games sale on Avalaunch will receive a portion of their tokens at the TGE, which is scheduled to occur on February 28. Therefore, the turnaround time from the point of sale to the receipt of tokens is appealing and contrasts with private rounds where initial distribution is typically many months away.

Overall, the Aether Games strategic offering on Avalaunch stands out for its reduced pricing and relatively swift token distribution post-sale, thereby aligning the interests of early supporters with the long-term success of the project.
