Developer's Note

This litepaper contains the first published version of the detailed game mechanics of Genopets, the world’s first Move-to-Earn NFT Game. This paper is meant to complement and clarify the original Genopets whitepaper (which will be receiving a full refresh shortly). Where there are any conflicts between this paper and existing material, the content of this paper supersedes.

By combining the social incentives of fitness apps with the richness of a free-to-play mobile RPG game in a player controlled web3 economy, we aim to build an experience that empowers anyone to create value by investing in themselves.

Paying homage to the nostalgia many of us experienced taking care of our Tamagotchi, evolving and battling our Pokémon, or even raising our first real pet as a child, the emotional connection between one’s self and their pet is a powerful motivating force. Genopets is designed to harness that force and use it to encourage and reward players for staying active. Doing something we all know we should be doing, but oftentimes life gets in the way. Genopets is a game where a player’s real world actions quite literally can create value; emotionally, physically, and even financially as you grow and evolve alongside your digital familiar, your Genopet.

Sustainability and enjoyment have been the guiding principles of our game design process, the same ones we believe are fundamental to pursuing a more active lifestyle. Every mechanic design decision was made with these principles–and the long-term interests of the community and its supporters–in mind.

The information contained in this paper is intended to be definitive. However, the design team acknowledges that adjustments may have to be made sometime in the future, perhaps due to community sentiment or unexpected catalysts. Ultimately, the right to vote on such decisions will belong to the holders of the governance token.

In the meantime, we are deeply humbled and grateful to serve as custodians of this project--and the shared vision of the Genoverse that binds us together as a community.
