Regardless of launching over a 12 months in the past, we haven’t coated Galaktika earlier than as a result of, properly, they weren’t actually a sport! Began by a few artists who’ve some obscure concept of merging NFT paintings and neighborhood, Galaktika has pivoted and begun constructing a mission oriented, staking sport with an attention-grabbing twist. And sizzling on the heels of their gameplay replace is a sale for the latest Civilization, the magical Axolotl!
Constructed on the WAX blockchain, Galaktika started as an artwork mission. And that is fairly apparent while you have a look at the playing cards. The artwork type just isn’t one thing you’ll usually see in any sport, a lot much less an area sport. It sparkles with a surreal effervescence that instantly catches the attention, with every rarity stage bolder than the final. Galaktika additionally donates to charitable causes with each sale. Donations from the Axolotl sale go to the Indian Orphan Mission.
The Galaktika assortment consists of a number of kinds of playing cards, together with Portals which offer ongoing airdrops of Sparks and Cosmic Sparks. These Spark NFTs can be wanted to gas missions. They’re additionally used for crafting rare Krystals, one other kind of gas.
The Galaktika workforce just lately launched an up to date whitepaper and a collection of medium articles to put out their plans and imaginative and prescient for the sport. There isn’t a battle or galactic battle or PvP. As a substitute, Galaktika is a sport of peaceable exploration and neighborhood engagement.
The Galaktika sport performs out over three day cycles, or Epochs. For every Epoch, each civilization provides three missions — mining, exploration, and invention. Gamers might select one mission kind per civilization, for a most of 5 missions whole. At some point one, these with GLK, the Galaktika token, might stake GLK to their chosen missions. Staking GLK opens up the flexibility to stake extra NFTs on the missions on day two. Any staked GLK is returned to the house owners on the finish of the Epoch.
However right here’s the twist. Rising the quantity of staked GLK on a mission, additionally will increase the prospect of mission failure. If everybody simply masses onto the identical mission, it’s extra doubtless that nobody will obtain any rewards. So there’s some room for technique right here. Do you stake your NFTs to missions as quickly as attainable to be sure to get on board and hope it doesn’t get overloaded? Or do you wait till the final minute to try to decide the most suitable choice with reference to danger vs reward? Greed vs neighborhood?
On day two, gamers might stake NFTs to affix missions, whether or not or not they staked GLK on day one. Becoming a member of missions requires particular NFTs, randomly chosen from the related Civilization. Gamers might stack as much as three playing cards into every slot, extra in the event that they staked GLK on day one (as much as a most of 10). Gamers even have the choice of accelerating their mission energy by including Particular playing cards, Useful resource playing cards (Spark and Krystal NFTs), and Synergy playing cards. Playing cards with low mint numbers (1-10) multiply the general mission energy.
Everybody who joined a mission receives rewards on success, with those that staked extra GLK and mission energy incomes a bigger portion. Missions reward each GLK tokens and NFTs. The kind of NFTs is dependent upon the mission. Mining missions discover Spark NFTs, whereas exploration missions and invention missions uncover fragments. Use the fragments to increase the related civilization. Why? I’m not fully positive. I suppose this may feed into the later ‘Part 2’ launch, the place gamers can use their governance votes to assist form the galaxy.
Gross sales for the primary 4 Civilizations already got here and went, although you could find playing cards and even unopened packs on the secondary markets. Nonetheless, the sale for the most recently released civlization , the Axolotl, is still ongoing. The packs are pre-minted, which means that extra helpful low mint playing cards may very well be in any pack!

The large packs comprise 20 playing cards, the small 8. Every pack additionally consists of one Spark (or Cosmic Spark), and one Avatar card. Avatar playing cards can be used for galactic governance in a later replace. There are additionally extremely uncommon Bounty NFTs and 1/1 Satoships to be discovered on this assortment.
