Raregotchi is a classic ‘90s-inspired metaverse game featuring virtual pets as NFTs powered by NFT Studios. It is a proper ecosystem with collectible toys and breedable pets designed in vibrant graffiti-inspired art, and P4F experiences.
The first NFT sale will begin on June 30 and until July 4 but before the Raregotchi NFTs sell out, here’s everything you need to know about the colorful world of toys, pets, and NFT gaming!
As the NFT market continues to see a harsh winter, many new projects and collections are underway. Investors and NFT enthusiasts are widely looking for attractive digital collectibles with unique designs and concepts amidst the hard times.
In the recent NFT NYC 2022 conference, various NFT brands participated and NYC was packed with people bustling near the event for the whole week. Despite the declining crypto prices, experts believe NFT has now become a mature industry that will continue to grow.
Raregotchi is a new NFT/metaverse-based game inspired by the ‘90s style art that will kickstart a new beginning for the NFT industry. The ecosystem is built in an interconnective model so every aspect will influence other aspects to give a more immersive gaming experience to users.
Raregotchi is unlike other NFT gaming projects as it is mainly built to expand as a proper metaverse with its original virtual pets and toys as NFTs. The project will mark the official entry in July by hosting a mint for its first NFT drop, OG TOY Sale.
OG TOY Sale: The first Raregotchi generation
Raregotchi is dropping its first-generation OG TOY Sale featuring 3,000 NFT TOYS in digital packages, each containing surprises for early buyers and collectors. The NFTs will be sold in three minting stages all at the price of 0.25 ETH.
For OG TOY Sale, three types of NFT TOYS will be released, namely School Kid, Snow Cone, and Alien Baby. Each type consists of 1,000 toys with unique generative features and visual stories.
The sale will be done at random and the rarity trait will be determined based on the three sizes. Every size determines how many OG PETS the TOY owner can mint (3, 4, or 6) later when PETS minting is open.
The OG TOY Sale will start with pre-mint on June 30 for 48 hours. A minting pass will be given to partners, collaborators, Rarely Adopters, and allowlist giveaways winners. Partners & Collaborators will be able to pre-mint 1 to 10 TOYS.
The second will be the OG mint for the remaining NFT TOYS to be held on July 2 & 3 for those who have already claimed the OG role in the Discord server. Finally, the public mint will be held on July 4 where buyers can mint up to 3 unminted NFT TOYS on the marketplace.
The users who previously claimed the Rarely Adopter role in October 2021 will automatically be part of the allowlist after they submit their wallets to a private Discord channel. They can mint up to 3 NFT TOYS during the pre-mint.
Since the NFT will be sold at random, no one will know what or how many pets a holder can pull. As soon as the NFT is transferred to the owner’s wallet, they will be able to unseal the digital package to see what pets they pulled.
The TOY NFT holders can also choose not to unseal and keep them stored in the digital container. However, if opened once, it won’t be sealable.
According to the Medium website, 200 NFT TOYS will be reserved for the Raregotchi team and marketing purposes.
Benefits & access
Owning a TOY NFT comes with many benefits. The holders can claim a physical vinyl of the toy and access various events within the Raregotchi games. NFT TOY owners will also receive a free House mint, control over OG PETS production, and voting power in RareDAO.
They can use the PETS they pulled from the TOY NFT to create their own Raregotchi lineage and PET clan based on their preferences.
You can use your pets in the NFT game to play various games or challenge friends to a duel.
PETS NFTs and Rareverse
Raregotchi’s metaverse is called Rareverse, which is a blend of NFT gaming and ecosystem. The TOY NFTs contain PETS and TOYS which have the utility to enable players to battle or go on adventures within the metaverse.
Based on the official website, the PETS are ‘non-hereditary’ and can only be minted through the TOYS. In other words, only those who mined NFT TOYS will be given the option to mint PETS NFTs based on the size of their TOY.
PETS NFTs are a total of 9,999 with each having unique features to make them stand out. PETS NFTs rarity levels are mainly divided into five tiers, Rare, Ultra-Rare, Epic, Shiny, and Legendary.
Each PET NFT is hand-drawn to showcase a precise artistic graffiti style with varying features based on Type, Body Color, Background Color, Head, Item, Eyes, and Mouth.
Raregotchi games are built on an ecosystem that is widely interconnected with the NFTs. Users can pick from a wide range of Raregotchi games to play using their TOYS or PETS and earn Rarepeaches, the native token of Raregotchi.
Raregotchi games offer Player vs Environment (PvE) and Player vs Player (PvP) with a reward-based system.
The first game is called Raregotchi The Game, a resource-gathering adventure game where users can raise and breed their pets by completing missions and performing active & passive tasks to earn tokens. Users use the tokens to upgrade NFT Houses and buy other digital items within the game.
Another game is called Raregotchi PvP Game where holders can use their PETS as avatars to duel against other community members. The winner can receive tokens and in-game rewards.
Raregotchi is mainly an NFT game with a whole ecosystem catering to P4F games. It was founded by a team of three people FEDE, JIMI, and MAURI.
The project is backed by NFT Studios, a blockchain-centric platform widely known for its successful NFT and metaverse products, solutions, tools, and technologies.
Raregotchi has posted an official roadmap to give individuals an idea of how they are going to develop as a metaverse NFT game. After the OG TOY Sale ends, OG PET minting will take place for the holders to mint their pets.
The mint will depend on the size of the holder’s OG TOY. The holders can either mint 3, 4, or 6 OG PETS. After minting, holders will be able to create their pet lineage and use them for different adventure games to earn tokens and rewards.
In Q4 2022, Raregotchi will launch its native token called Rarepeaches which users will earn through various P4F games available in the ecosystem. TOY owners will also receive a free Raregotchi House mint.
The roadmap also mentions a Raregotchi Marketplace, PVP Battles, more Breeding options, and other token-based community governance features in 2023.
Raregotchi is a unique metaverse NFT game that offers NFT holders a wide range of options. Unlike other NFT reward-based games, Raregotchi has built a proper ecosystem with an organized roadmap backed by a world-renowned NFT Studios company that has a rich background in NFT gaming projects.
The NFTs also have a great utility to owners. Instead of just sitting in wallets as decorations, holders can experience the P4F games while navigating their favorite minted NFTs.
All in all, it is an ideal NFT metaverse game project for those who love classic ‘90s art-style animation.
