Pixelcraft Studios Dev Highlights
Unequipping Functionality Now Live
The dev team has shipped an update that enables players to remove Installations, like Aaltars, from your Gotchiverse REALM parcel. Keep in mind that removing aesthetic installations does not burn the NFT, but removing Aaltars burns it and returns 50% of the Alchemica spent on crafting and upgrading.
Decorations Live in the Baazaar
Decorations are now Tradable in the Aavegotchi Baazaar. They can be found under the Installations tab! Click here to browse the decorations currently up for sale.
Pixelcraft Studios in June
Aavegotchi’s core team shipped a lot of surprises this month, not the least of which was Aavegotchi V2 while in New York City. The theme guiding June’s efforts was expansion in every direction. In order to achieve such, Pixelcraft Studios is organized into multiple independent teams including the REALM team (building the Gotchiverse), Aavegotchi.com, and special project units. June was a month with significant developments across all teams.
The REALM team again leveled up with the addition of Mythical, the team’s new Project Manager. She has been busy leading the current dev cycle and ramping up for the next major release. The roster shifts but ultimately expands this month with Coyote, the team’s Frontend lead departing. We wish him the best on his next chapter. Meanwhile, we are excited to be joined by two new senior frontend engineers, Oliver and Paul. Interviews for additional Senior Game Programmers begin in the first week of July.
The Aavegotchi.com team was busier than most knew with the secretive V2 only recently revealed at NFY NYC. CryptoRich, the team’s project manager, was on hand at the NYC GotchiGang Rooftop party to reveal the beefy new dapp. S/O to Frontend Lead, Candoizo, who has been instrumental in the successful deployment of June’s key events such as the NFT decorations raffle. The team has recently added another UI designer and is working to squeeze in a few more powerful features before shipping!
Long in planning, a new special project unit formally kicked off this month known as [REDACTED].
