Chimeras August Game Development Digest

A hearty welcome to all Chimeras community members with this month’s game development digest! In this article, we will delve into the many new functions and features that are coming up soon, and take a peek at the preparations for the impending Global Launch. Here we go.

Some new mechanics are at work, as the feature involving the Development of Chimeras is being refined. This new and long-anticipated function allows players to upgrade and further enhance their Chimeras, giving them new abilities and improving performance. So players can cross their Chimeras and watch them pass through all the stages from egg to hatching, followed by upgrades, all the way up to retirement — just like in ‘real’ life. A valuable addition to the game in terms of personal connection and engagement, to say the least.

Blessings and Curses are underway into Chimeras gameplay — a feature that endows players with truly magical abilities, upticking their status as true sorcerers. Players encounter spells with positive or negative buffs cast spontaneously during gameplay randomly onto Chimeras, such as Blessings, which boost their performance. Curses, on the other hand, rob Chimeras of their vitality, sending them into the pits of gloom and sloth. Curses can be removed through a simple but fun mini-game or a potion that negates all cast effects.

Speaking of Healing, it will not be as simple as just waving a magic wand. Indeed, players will have to engage in exciting Curse Breaking Mini-games that involve some nerve and require quick reaction timing to make sure the Curse is lifted.

Work is also underway on various Daily Quests for players to keep the excitement pumping. An array of new quest events have been developed and will soon be on offer for players to enjoy.

The art lies at the heart of Chimeras, indulging players’ visual tastes, and acting as a feast for the eyes. As such, the game design team has some new artwork to show off. Check them out.

An improved UX/UI is underway to further de-clutter the interface and make gameplay smoother and more intuitive. The UX/UI is also being enhanced for a number of in-game functions, namely: the Farming feature, the Alchemy feature, the Blessings and Curses feature, and the rewards screens.

Improved in-game interface

The general player profile screen is currently being updated, with new settings tabs, a language selection option, ID copying, sound settings, as well as a Help & Support popup window.

3D art concepts are ready for some of the main farm buildings in the game that your Chimeras will attend: Great Trees, Wizard Towers, and Holy Sites.

Work is underway on the design of a new website that will be released together with the Global Launch of the game. We will keep its visual concept a secret for now, but users are sure to love it at first glance.

Game development is progressing well, as the team optimized the creation of recipes in the laboratory. Specifically, players can now specify how many items they wish to craft, accelerating gameplay considerably. The UX for farm buildings has become smoother, with the number of clicks needed to place Chimeras and collect chests being decreased significantly.

Another fascinating addition that players will enjoy is the new Asset Generator. This mechanic allows players to create new Chimeras on both a random basis and using a set of predetermined characteristics — the Chimeras DNA. The results of every combination are sure to please.

The blockchain is the core of the game, so the team has decided to spoil the community a bit by introducing discounts for purchases in CHIMs on the Marketplace. New filters including ‘My Favorite’ and ‘Available for Sale’ are now also part of the Marketplace to ease user interaction. The long-awaited NFT staking function has finally been released and is ready for use! Players can now stake their NFTs and enjoy the trickle of rewards in the form of CHIM tokens.

Marketing is in core focus for the team at present, as we are working intensely with the community by organizing various events on Telegram, Discord, and Twitter weekly. We welcome all our users to join, participate in our many activities and win cool NFT prizes and tokens. Particularly active participants will stand a chance of being accepted into the CHIM Private Club, where they can get some additional goodies. Members will be the first to know about new content releases, gain access to contests with top prizes, and much more.
