Ex Populus has made a significant impact in the gaming industry with the release of “Final Form,” a digital card-based auto-battler game that premiered on the Xai platform. What distinguishes Xai from other platforms is its unique “layer-3” status, designed specifically to cater to game creators operating in the Web3 space. “Final Form” offers players a distinctive gaming experience as they build new decks for each match, and their choices unfold cinematically. The game’s logic is built on Arbitrum Nova, a cutting-edge decentralized blockchain, ensuring transparency and long-term sustainability for the game. “Final Form” takes trading cards to the next level, providing peer-to-peer card mobility while adhering to high ERC standards. Importantly, it’s not just a product of Ex Populus but a collaborative effort with fans worldwide, making it a truly community-driven gaming ecosystem. In “Final Form,” players find themselves in a distant future where an enigmatic artifact called “God’s Tooth” resides on a remote alien world. This mysterious obelisk serves as a focal point, creating a quantum rift through dimensions that draws characters from various multiverses into an expansive interdimensional battleground. In this cosmic collision, only a select few can attain their ultimate, Final Form. Players engage in intense battles using limited edition cards, summoned companions, mutates, and relics to construct formidable battle decks. Gameplay in “Final Form” places a strong emphasis on skill, rewarding the most adept players who rise to dominance. A central mechanic is card evolution, powered by Chromos earned through battles, which elevates cards to Legendary Rarity. However, this evolution comes at a price, as players must sacrifice cards, introducing an element of scarcity. Victories in successive matches enhance a player’s card inventory and grant Chromos for further evolution. “Final Form” draws inspiration from Rogue-Lite and Souls-Like games, where losses carry significant consequences, requiring players to start anew while retaining their Limited Edition cards. The game’s rule-set, inspired by traditional card decks, encompasses aspects like rarity, health, attack, and abilities, ensuring adaptability for a diverse range of potential trading card games. Tokenomics play a crucial role in the “Final Form” ecosystem. Each victorious battle rewards players with Chromos, the in-game Evolution currency. Higher rarity cards grant more Chromos, adding to their value. Players can combine Chromos with lower-tier cards to evolve and enhance their card collection, further enhancing the rarity and value of their cards. This scarcity of rarities contributes to the overall value of the trading card ecosystem. The community response to “Final Form” has been overwhelmingly positive. Players have praised the game’s aesthetically appealing card designs, and excitement is running high. Additionally, there has been discussion about Xai, the Layer 3 platform developed by Offchains labs and its integration into the Arbitrum ecosystem, showing the growing interest in the blockchain technology that underpins the game. Overall, “Final Form” has made a significant impact in the gaming world, offering a unique and engaging experience to players while leveraging blockchain technology to create a thriving gaming ecosystem.
