KOTA: King of the Apocalypse
ZENZO Forge Tech Demo
FPS — Survival — Strategy
KOTA (King of the Apocalypse) is based on the principles of survival and building an impenetrable encampment during a zombie apocalypse. The end goal is to become the most powerful, enduring, and self-sufficient to survive any type of attack and all types of enemies. In order to do so, the player must clear out areas of un-dead, find the resources to build each required component of their base, and join other players in PVE events to earn even greater rewards and better tools of survival. Even though the world is full of zombies, the player will come across and house a multitude of NPC’s, who can use their specific skills to help the settlement grow.
Some inspirations behind KOTA were a range of different styles including: FPS, RTS, and Survival. However, KOTA is different as it takes elements from a multitude of games and melds it into one game. You can micromanage your encampment from an overhead view (real time) and if you ever need to defend your base or you decide to go out and complete a mission yourself, you can protect your people first-hand in first person view. Unlike most apocalyptic and zombie games, the focus is not to run away from the enemies. Players are encouraged to relish in taking them on face-to-face and using strategy to survive the apocalypse.
The ZENZO Forge is a decentralized solution that allows for players to have complete ownership of their in-game items, without having to pay for ridiculously expensive transactions fees for every single action in the game. On top of that, the ZENZO Forge functions as a peer-to-peer network that players run, while playing the game, just like a game launcher. Each player running this “launcher" is hosting a node that helps to distribute and strengthen the network efficiency.
Inside the user interface (reference image below), you can see your ZNZ balance. This balance is linked to your ZENZO Forge and ZENZO Core Wallet, in which you must be running simultaneously with the game. Inside your user interface, you can choose to craft and smelt items, even in mid-game!
Players can now craft items in-game. With the required amount of ZNZ, you can forge your own items and use them in the game. When you craft an item, your ZNZ is locked in the Forge and in your ZENZO Core Wallet. Furthermore, if you would like to keep your item, smelt it, or trade it, you may do so at any time. You have complete ownership of your ZENZO Forge Items and digital assets on the ZENZO Forge and ZENZO Blockchain, as long as you solely own your private keys.
Players can now smelt items in-game. Smelting an item basically destroys or salvages that item. This allows for players to receive their original ZNZ value that they used to craft the item (minus the minimal blockchain fees). By smelting a ZENZO Forge Item, your ZENZO Core Wallet will unlock the amount you had infused in the item creation and receive it back into your same address. As mentioned above, you will have to pay for the transaction fee, which is hardly noticeable.
