Based Devs never stop shipping! Here’s what we accomplished in July:
Gotchiverse Farming Release
Farming is now live in the Gotchiverse! Players can now survey their parcels and craft and equip Haarvesters, Reservoirs, and Maaker Bots to optimize their farming operation. The launch of farming was celebrated by hundreds of members in the Aavegotchi Discord server with an XP event/paarty. Enter the Gotchiverse now and check out the Farming Release for yourself!
Rarity Farming SZN 4 Begins
Rarity Farming SZN 4 has begun! The season officially started on July 28th, with the first on-chain snapshot happening two weeks later on August 11th. This season will reward a total of 1.5M GHST to the top 7,500 Aavegotchis across the categories of Rarity, Kinship, and XP. Remember frens, take care of your Gotchis and they’ll take care of you! For more information, see our blog.
The official Gotchiverse Docs are now live! The docs are loaded with information, tutorials, guides, crafting recipes, and even some choice bits of lore. Moving forward the docs will be the go to source for all fully confirmed information about the Gotchiverse.
Aavegotchi X Chainlink
The Aavegotchi Protocol continues to find new ways to implement Chainlink’s on-chain random number generator, VRF. The recent Farming Release saw yet another implementation, with players surveying their Gotchiverse land and calling upon the function to determine the amounts of Gotchus Alchemica beneath the surface. For more information on Aavegotchi’s use of Chainlink VRF check out our blog post.
Aavegotchi’s 2nd Birthday
Aavegotchi’s 2nd Birthday was July 8th! The GotchiGang celebrated with a party and XP Event at the Saturday weekly hangout on July 9th! The party featured good vibes, lots of alpha, and Alchemica spillover in the Gotchiverse. Follow us on Twitter for updates on future community events.

Pixelcraft Studios in June
The Aavegotchi maximalists at Pixelcraft Studios had a productive July, working hard to deliver the Gotchiverse’s long desired Farming Release. After a smooth Mumbai testnet experience, the ultimate in land parcel utility arrived with the ability to craft and upgrade various Alchemica harvesting equipment.
The coordinated efforts on infrastructure along with a growing frontend team (two more engineers added in July!) were key to the major feature release going so well. The various teams at Pixelcraft continue to work on their primary Q3 targets including Aavegotchi.com V2, Gotchiverse combat, traits, and more.
Pixelcraft concluded the month by welcoming another senior full-stack engineer to the Gotchiverse team. More on him and his work in the near future :)
July was another hot month of summer shipping for the Aavegotchi team! There’s even moar to come in August.
A Preview of August:
- Rarity Farming SZN 4
- Aavegotchi.com V2
- Gotchiverse Updates
