A hilarious and fast-paced NFT strategy game with stunning artwork, inspired by the classic game, Worms.
Ready for battle
War Snails is a gaming NFT collection of 8,888 unique ERC-721 tokens with a randomised combination of over 210 hand-drawn traits. In addition to awesome artwork, War Snails has been built from the ground up with engaging, long-term utility with addictive gameplay.
We loved playing Worms when we were kids and wanted to inject some of that humour and skilful gameplay into the War Snails project.
Much like the original Worms game from 1995, War Snails will battle on destructible 2D levels. You’ll move your War Snail by slithering, jumping, teleporting, climbing and more. Once positioned you’ll choose from available weapons to inflict maximum damage on your opponent, whilst making sure you don’t nail yourself in the process.
War Snails will also be randomly assigned physical traits that provide in-game advantages, for example the ability to jump further or to sustain greater damage from a napalm attack.
Visual traits will also carry special abilities and provide access to rare weapons, power-ups and breeding advantages.
We’re already giddy with excitement.
Mastering the use of weapons is going to be key in progressing the 13 stages from Private to Sergeant Major.
We'll be creating over 100 special weapons ranging from handguns to time portals with new seasonal and special edition weapons being released periodically. Pass the salt!
War Snail owners will periodically be gifted power-ups and special weapons via air drops. Special abilities will also be airdropped to the winners of War Snails tournaments and regular competitions.
GAME FACE ON
The game will be highly competitive and engaging, not just to play but also to watch.
War Snails are divided into 4 tribes which carry unique traits and access to different communities. Snails will be sociable though and so owning Snails from multiple tribes may also be advantageous.
Play to Earn
The War Snails game format is perfectly suited to the Play and Earn (P&E) model. It’s familiar, accessible and there’s a healthy skill curve to master. In the War Snails P&E environment rewards will come in the form of boosts and power-ups that can either be traded or used to pay for breeding.
War Snails owners will be able to compete in tournaments to win power-ups and monetary prizes. We have created a draft structure for the tournaments which will be based on your location and the overall strength of your War Snail.
Regional finalists will advance through from National Leagues to the Global League where prize-pools increase in value at each stage.
Player vs. Player
The War Snails game is a 3 vs 3 battle to the death. You don't need to have 3 Snails to play however as there will be sub games designed for single Snail owners and other ways to participate.
One of the main issues with P&E gaming is that people need to keep buying the NFTs to bring money into the ecosystem. With betting we're allowing funds to flow into the eco-system in a way that is more scalable and sustainable.
You'll be able to breed your OG War Snails and either sell the offspring or keep farming to build a whole colony. We've structured a neat way to allow you to keep breeding Snails without the supply growing uncontrollably. Also OG War Snails are the only ones who can breed and have special traits so your NFT will not be devalued.
We realise that building a dope game is a big challenge and want to ensure our community that the team has the skills and experience to make this project a AAA level reality. The War Snails NFT is just the beginning.
Launch the War Snails site and grow a discord community around the project. Gather feedback and refine whilst offering giveaways of Snails and other NFTs we love.
