Introducing OP City in Atlantis World to the Optimism Collective

:red_circle: :sparkles: GM Optimists,

Great to meet everyone! I’m Rev, co-founder @ Atlantis World, Unchain Fund, Kyiv Tech Summit, and involved in other public goods, humanitarian-aid focused initiatives (KERNEL, ChoiceDAO, SavePakistan, etc).

Speaking on behalf of our team, we’re beyond grateful for Optimism ecosystem’s support, care and constructive feedback you’ve shared during Atlantis World alpha launch in Nov ‘22. Huge, optimistic shout out to OP Labs and everyone from Optimism Collective for being always here for the community and ecosystem builders.

We wanted to introduce Atlantis World to the collective, and share a bit about what we’ve been building and pushing for web3 altogether. Particularly, we’re happy to share AW launch retro ft. OP City and our optimistic plans moving forward.

Atlantis World in Ukraine :ukraine:

Together with our partners, we’ve launched Unchain Fund, web3 native non-profit focused on helping Ukraine with humanitarian aid. We’re deeply grateful to Optimism ecosystem, and especially to Vitalik Buterin, Scott Moore, Linda Xie, Binji, Vee @ OP Labs, PoolTogether community, and thousands of other Optimists who made it possible to fundraise ~ $9.5m in crypto, and directly help over 400k+ Ukrainians since Feb 24, 2022.

Besides Unchain, we’ve co-organised Kyiv Tech Summit (KTS), first of its kind web3 hackathon during the wartime focused on humanitarian public goods to make wartime life easier. We’ve hosted KTS in a bomb shelter, in Kyiv, Ukraine.

interesting facts about Kyiv Tech Summit:

FYI part of our team, including me & my co-founder CJ, are still volunteering on the ground in Ukraine. Last week, we’ve visited my hometown … no matter what, we’ll continue fighting for freedom.

:sparkles: Public Alpha Launch | Nov 2022

Early in Nov we’ve launched Atlantis World Alpha v1 and started hosting month of Optimism Nation inside of OP City - more than 15,000+ users played the game in Nov, and completed Optimism and Atlantis World onboarding quests!

You can visit & sign in with Ethereum wallet on desktop web browser, we’re by the way shipping mobile ready version as a priority!

OP Month Traction

During OP Month in Nov, we had 15,000+ registered players, with 6,000+ of them completing the special ‘Find the Path’ quest - which included Optimism & OP ecosystem (Quix, PoolTogether, Perpetual Protocol, 1inch, Aave).

Player distribution:

22% - United States;
37% - Asia (esp. Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China);
41% - Europe (esp. Eastern Europe / Ukraine)

NOTE: it’s purely organic traction from our announcement post on Twitter, reposts from Optimism Foundation and OP ecosystem partners involved in the launch, as well as word of mouth. During OP month, we’ve launched OP native / partner clubhouses only. We’ve been experimenting for a year+ and soon we’ll be launching new maps, and will continue to onboard new players into Optimism.

Community feedback

We take community feedback seriously and since the beginning been mindful about asking for voluntarily feedback via ‘AW–OP Month: Game Feedback’, featured in-game. We’ve received 23.3k form replies, and after some quality filtering - identified 2042 responses with the 1-5 rating explanation, as well as over 1000+ mid/high quality replies (i’ve personally read all of them).

1209 users (59,2%) rated 5/5 the overall experience with the quests, video/voice call, and world itself; 541 (26.5%) voted 4/5; 211 (10,3%) voted 3/5; 55 (2,7%) voted 2/5; and only 26 (1,3%) voted 1/5 - out of 2042 responses.

General Community Feedback

  • “Pretty interesting, allowing players to explore the map while completing quests.”
  • “The concept is very unique and clear”
  • ”I love the gamified education for introducing OP to the world.”
  • “i am excited! interface, user experience, fast interaction, music! i love it”
  • ”great game for user to learning how to enter the web3 world, especially OP eco”
  • “I love the graphic setting you have chosen, in pixel art !!! Of course, other projects that use more advanced graphics and features could be more appealing to the mass but if well structured, the project’s quest and social network structure could give you an edge”
  • it’s good because we discover the DEFI applications really simply and fast”
  • ”It runs in a browser, and the operation proceeds smoothly. I don’t like to download any software to my PC, so it is helpful that it runs in a browser.”
  • ”I like how y’all have voice chat options almost everywhere because most platforms missing this key feature.”
  • ”I like your idea very much. This brings back memories of Perfect world, Warcraft, Lineage 2”
  • ”Excellent picture quality, high playability, interesting dialogue design”

Of course, there was also user feedback about in-game bugs(we’ve fixed), improvement ideas, and more! We’ve particularly appreciated feedback from users that voted game experience less than 5 and explained their logic. Some examples include:

  • ”Difficult to follow at first because there is no map on where to go. But overall the quest are exciting and fun”
  • “so many buildings and roads, complicated, but the drawing is good, and a new way interacting with dapps.”
  • “I hope it can be made into an RPG type”
  • ”Maybe try adding other languages like Chinese?”
  • If you have a choice of avatar, that’s the best”
  • ”good idea of a game ,however i think you need to upgrade the graphics to be more interesting in gaming community to play it .”

This is critical feedback, and it truly means the world - it helps us improve Atlantis World, and serve our mission of onboarding users into web3.

Obviously, we’re still early - we’ve just shipped v1 of our public alpha, and will continue to experiment, iterate and improve AW - be it gameplay, web3 onboarding, UX/UI, art, quests, social features, protocol integrations, and more! As for ‘other languages’, ‘RPG’, ‘easy to follow maps’, ‘upgrade the graphics’, ‘character customisability’, etc - it’s on the roadmap, so let our actions speak for themselves.
