Planet Mojo is an auto chess game reinvented for blockchain technology. The game tells the story of a new alien world which is setting nature and machine against each other, where players can discover, explore, and compete in a selection of interconnected tactical strategy games, beginning with an Auto Chess title. Through owning teams as NFTs, users can engage in cross-platform PvP and play-to-earn mechanics, whilst also experiencing augmented reality and charitable eco-friendly features.
The first quarter of 2022 will see Planet Mojo release a set of 10,000 generative 3D animated NFT ‘Mojos’, which will be directly usable in the game. There will also be additional perks on offer to early adopters of the game, however, at this moment in time, their attributes are still undisclosed.
The development team behind the extra-terrestrial metaverse features over 25 years of gaming-development experience. The team includes veterans from an array of illustrious game developers, including EA, Activision, LucasArts and HappyGiant.
