Genopets released a new version of its app for Android and iOS devices this week. This update brings improved features and graphics. In addition, the Genopets team provided us with a preview of some upcoming features and a roadmap for near-term development.
Currently in alpha, Genopets already allows players to move and win. Players accumulate steps using the app, then bank those steps, turning them into energy, which then converts to KI tokens via a Habitat. These KI tokens have many uses in the Genopets ecosystem, but they can also be exchanged for other currencies on the blockchain.
The Genopets team has just released new versions of its app for Android and iOS devices. The game does not have an automatic update, but if you visit the appropriate store page, you should find an update option. In addition to some quality of life and graphics improvements, this version should fix an issue that many Android users have noticed, which is that their steps are not always counted. Pretty important for an application that allows you to earn money!
The new versions bring us new sounds and options for volume control. Habitat owners can now choose to display their habitat as Genopets’ background. Set your habitat as the background by clicking the “Visible in Game” button on the home page. Habitat management web page. Other improvements include new animations for leveling up and pet evolution.
Roadmap for pets and genopets
In addition, we also received some details on future pet features. The team previewed a number of pet-related items, including food and toys. When the Pet Nurturing component is added to the game, players will be responsible for keeping their pets fed and happy. Feeding is done through food items, while keeping your pet happy will require petting and playing with them. Sometimes pets will even find items for you while you’re out walking!
The team has released a general roadmap for future Genopets projects. Recipes and items to make will be available soon. Players will use Habitats to make items such as Reagents (for recipes), Cosmetic Crystals, and Animal Augments.
What is Genopets?
Genopets is a free-to-play, move-to-earn game built on the Solana blockchain. Using the Genopets app, players collect steps as they walk. They convert these steps into energy and then into KI tokens. KI tokens are Genopets’ primary currency and are used to craft crystals, upgrade their Genopet, maintain habitats… pretty much every feature in the game.
Genopets offers a number of NFTs, as well as the new style of ‘SFTs’ for basic resources. The main NFTs are Genesis Genopets and Habitats. SFT resources include raw crystals, refined crystals, terraform seeds, and other upcoming additions such as pet augmentations.
Players can earn money by cashing in their KI tokens, making and selling crystals, or renting habitats. Habitats are the main gateway to winning in the game. Each habitat contains a genopet. Habitats are needed to convert energy into KI, and for all crafting. Players must maintain their Habitats or production stops.
Genopets include two tokens, GENE and KI. GENE is the governance token, while KI is the main currency of the game. The game is currently in alpha, and they are sending out new invitation codes on a weekly basis.
