Dev Diary 03: Player Level and Experience


Ciao, I’m Marco, a full-stack developer at Wildchain.

In this blog, I’m going to introduce you to some of the game features in Wildchain Invite-only Alpha version, especially, player level and experience.

In Wildchain game, you can hatch eggs and collect animals, but what about the level of the players? Here comes my job, I made a leveling system for you, so you can progress in the game, expand your animal collection, and unlock new eco actions.



I created a backend system that interacts with the game, and this allows us to utilize different leveling features that will be integrated over the course of the game development. So far, there are many ways to earn experience points and level up, for example, you can perform an eco-action like make it rain.



I also added a new currency, apart from the normal leaves, we also have gold leaves. With gold leaves, not only can you use it to buy most of the items in the game, but you can also boost your incubator to speed up the hatching process and purchase items that create a real impact on the world! Moreover, you can now own your animals as an NFT in your collection, and that is possible just with a few taps. Go to your animal profile. Tap the action button, and then tap Mint!



Introducing these new features took me many weeks as I had to test them out repeatedly and make sure that everything is working smoothly. The best part of my dev journey was to see the results in action, and because of that, I hope you will enjoy the game and have fun playing it!
