Introduction

Mines of Dalarnia is a platform based 2D game packed with action and adventure. Players go through procedurally generated levels in a survivalist fashion, collecting items and resources and face off against dangers of the deep. 

Exploring different terrains presents an evolving gameplay in both strategy and play skill. All the in-game assets are NFTs, even the different maps (Mines), and can be traded. 

The game has two different games modes where you either play as a Miner or a Landowner, or both! Mining is more action oriented whilst owning Lands is more relaxed, but not without gameplay! 

Miners keep what they mine during a “Run” whilst Landowners receive revenue for the “Dig Cost” of the Miners, which then can be traded to upgrade or buy new materials. 

Gameplay

There are two different ways to play Mines of Dalarnia. You can either be a Miner or a Landowner.  

Playing as a Miner will mean high action gameplay where you explore Mines and discover resources in the form of relics and minerals. Mining is not without its risks though, as a Miner you can face monsters, trigger traps and a limited supply of Oxygen forces the player to be efficient while Mining Terrestrial Mines.  

Mining requires different tools and acquiring these will allow the player to advance. Tools required for this except the basic Pickaxe might include a Drill, Health pack or even a Bomb! Each Mine has three different Depths, which increases in difficulty but also rewards. These harder Depths will become available as your character level increases.

For the different Lands, Terrestrial, Darkness, Ice and Lava Mines special equipment is needed to venture further. Terrestrial requires Oxygen whereas Darkness requires Oil, Ice mines need Wood and Lava mines Coal. 

A run is over either when the players' health is depleted or whenever the required Land specific component (Oxygen, Oil, etc.) runs out. 

As a Landowner you supply other players with the possibility of mining on that Land. These Land plots are NFTs that also are tradeable on the Marketplace.  

For the plot of Land to be attractive to rent, it’s important to maintain the Land using consumable NFTs to service Lands.

Economy and Tokenomics

Mines of Dalarnia is Built on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and is using two tokens DAR and CHR. DAR Token is the in-game Token you will receive by renting Land, staking and winnings from tournaments. DAR might then be used in the Marketplace to upgrade Equipment. DAR is the currency used in the Marketplace as well as the fees for transactions. 

The play-to-earn economy is based on the ownership and renting of Lands. These Land Plots are unique and are scattered across the different Planets. The Plots carry resources (which differ from Planet to Planet) that enable players to upgrade their gear or just sell the resources. The owners of the Land Plots will in turn receive DAR as the “Dig Cost”.

  • Mining tools and weapons to dig through the Mines and defeat its Monsters. Your character’s level is also decided by its gear, there is no character experience. 

  • Mines and lands come in different forms and introduce new challenges and rewards for the daring explorer. In the picture below you can see the various kinds of terrain and the character level required D0 to D9. D0 is a ‘Free Zone’, meaning characters of all levels will be able to mine it. A character must be within two levels to Mine a certain plot.

Play to Earn

The current game is running on a testnet and real DAR tokens will be earned when Mines of Dalarnia 2.0 is launched on BSC, it’s planned to arrive in end of Q1. Right now, as a Free-to-Play (F2P) player you’ll get to try the game out in its most basic form. This will help a lot in deciding whether the game is for you or not. This will on the other hand restrict the player to only the F2P-Planet and the most basic Materials.
