Crowdfund Pre-Sale

Crowdfund the neXus

Here is where you come in! The scope of this project required multiple FUNDING STAGES based on project order – so that no matter which funding level we attain, we’re sure to deliver a great Cross-Reality experience and platform for 3rd party developers to add to. Help us co-fund Silica neXus and let’s see how big this game can get!

In-Game Rewards:

In the Alpha Mensae system on the second planet from that star the Mythilaens granted us a base planet to colonize and turn in to our base of operations for training and expanding our operations on their side of the dimensional veil. While it is not completely tamed yet, we have created several forts and are expanding colonies into cities to better protect each other. You can build your base camp there on Archipella, humanities’ first foothold on a world light-years away from the Earth.

We have secured a beachhead in several planetary systems which allow you to put down roots with the help of your remote avatar. Our friends from a nearby system have not only provided us with the technology that creates a safe and stable wormhole, but have also provided remote entities that resemble species and technologies from their side. This allows you to achieve telepresence on their world. To them you will appear as a native. It’s like you’re really there! Opportunity to become a beta tester for the Silica neXus Social Augmented Reality App (SARA) when it becomes available. Standard Land Plots are 150 x 150 Meters. 

Delivery: Before September 6, 2019

Level 7 – Prospector: $50
(Limit: 1,000 units)

Initiate Reward + Ore Resource Bot (rBOT) + Early access to SARA

Monitor your Resource Bot remotely and gather valuable resources. Alloy is needed as a consumable resource to build many things; buildings, droids, weapons, vehicles, ammunition, and the like. Alloy is produced from Ore. You can either buy the ore, or create your own here so you never run out. With this level you receive one Ore Resource Bot which detects and extracts a standard unit (SU) of ore per month to be processed into alloy by a Processing Plant. You also have an opportunity to become a beta tester for the Silica neXus Social Augmented Reality App (SARA) when it becomes available.

More about Resource Bots: Nanites (Microscopic Nanobots) assemble to form coins so people can pick them up (ever tried to pick up just one molecule?) They are also used to create Resource bots on the CORE planets of Silica neXus. These basic resource bots are used in the collection and production of basic Consumable Resources (“Consumables”) such as Fuel and Alloy on the CORE planets. These Consumables will be used by the players throughout the CORE planets just like gas and steel are consumed in countries around the world. Opportunity to become a beta tester for SARA when it becomes available.

Resource bots will be stored in users’ accounts, along with all of the other virtual goods they collect, until traded or put to use to create resource bots. Resource bots are installed on land parcels to acquire units of Crude or Ore to be processed into Fuel or Alloy respectively. Fuel and Alloy can be used, stored or traded.  Early Adopters through Convergence’s Crowdsource campaign can become first Resource Barons in the SXVU. As the number of users grows on the system, the scarcity of resources will create a natural supply / demand market and the value of the SU of any resource will fluctuate based upon this demand created by the users. Very similar to the ecosystem of the World of Warcraft community.
