Nifty League Moonmap
Nifty Smashers Alpha
Our NFT launch coincided with the immediate availability of our first of many games, Nifty Smashers.
Nifty Smashers stands as one of the earliest NFT-enabled games on Ethereum. At the time, it was especially rare for a game to sell avatars or digital assets with a playable prototype.
Considering browser limitations with WebGL games, we made a point to focus our immediate efforts on creating a launcher to house our games going forward. Avoiding browser memory limits allows us to introduce additional animations, movesets, and other NFT integrations - all while significantly improving ping for our players.
The Desktop App is now live for Windows users!
How cool is it to earn rewards while playing games you actually enjoy? With the rollout of our P2E system players were able to accumulate NFTL through competitive matches in Nifty Smashers.
While the largest winnings went to those players who stood victorious, all participants were rewarded NFTL every match for their efforts in helping us playtest the game.
We know our community can't wait to showcase their cool DEGENS on the streets! We are excited to unveil our merchandise marketplace powered by Shopify.
DEGEN Rentals (DEPRECATED)
Our initial player-base was limited to the number of unique DEGEN NFT holders. We introduced a rental system to scale our playerbase as much as possible without devaluing our genesis DEGEN NFT collection.
We introduced a bespoke rental system allowing DEGEN holders to earn NFTL daily through fees. Each DEGEN could be rented indefinitely but the cost for doing so increased exponentially with each additional rental. This allowed the market to decide the price for each DEGEN individually while spreading out the rentals across the board as some equipped with precious items, wearables, or backgrounds had a higher earn rate with multipliers.
Our games are meant to be competitive; what better way to showcase this than a leaderboard with star players like FVSVY at the top? 😏
We'll include game stats for daily, weekly, monthly, and of course all-time leaders for all of our games in the NiftyVerse. Some early honorary DEGENS:

WEN is a game of timing and reflex. The purpose of the game is to try and hit as many baseballs (launched from a baseball machine) as possible in a row to get a high score. Arcade Tokens are used to play WEN Game. Players earn Arcade Tokens every day they complete a Nifty Smashers match! This game marks our first Arcade Game launched and can be played without owning or renting a DEGEN.
Hearing the DEGENs' pleas to spend their hard-earned NFTL and with bigger sinks still under development, Satoshi suggests the DEGENs climb to the top of the Mt. Gawx volcano to offer their NFTL sacrifices to the fiery depths to see who might burn the most, and to discover whether the rumors of Rugman offering interesting rewards to burners are true.
Crypto Winter is a our second arcade style game which also depends on skillful timing and reflex. Play this single-player dodgeball-inspired arcade game and rank as high as you can!
Selecting a suitable Layer 2 partner is crucial to scaling our ecosystem at Nifty League, and we couldn't be more excited to start rolling out products on Immutable X (IMX) . IMX is solely focused on powering the next generation of Web3 games which positions Nifty League to capitalize on the upcoming wave of mainstream adoption.
Comic pages were free gifts airdropped to early DEGEN NFT minters & holders. Our team eventually revealed that each comic page could be burned to receive rare game weapons or wearables. Alternatively, holders could burn all six comics at once for an exclusive key to the Citadel!
Comic burning remains open until further notice!
Nifty Smashers Beta
We implemented a new roll-back netcode solution which improved lag considerably. You can also expect some cool features such as broadcasting live games and having replays readily available through our archive.
The ultimate sacrifice was made on this day to bring the ancient Hydras back from extinction. Community members lined up to send 8 DEGENs through a portal forever burning their existence from the blockchain. In return? A claim at one of 98 rare Hydra eggs.
Hydras are amphibious water dragons that roam freely underwater or on land. Their cuteness belies their wise and fighting prowess. They pack a punch with their tridents, spears, and ranged attacks and bring a wealth of lore knowledge to Nifty League, being the oldest tribe.
Scaling our platform is a high priority. Part of this process is onboarding new users who may not be able to afford expensive digital assets.
Our new free-2-play focus allows players to experience our games using generic characters of each tribe while more premium access is still restricted to DEGEN holders.
We are implementing several fundamental tools for our games including progression and marketplace systems. These systems incentivize players to stick around by rewarding them for milestones that drive engagement and retention. Nifty Smashers will be the first game we integrate with live ops tooling as part of its mobile launch. In addition, we are training Smashers AI to keep lobbies full and accomodate multiple skill levels.
Nifty Smashers Mobile
Bringing Smashers to Mobile (Android & iOS). Going forward all of our games will be mobile compatible. With a high concentration of gamers using mobile platforms, we envision this release will be pivotal to the project.
Welcome to the NiftyVerse; a world filled with DEGENs and NFT communities alike with a shared vision to have fun and build a thriving gaming ecosystem. What makes the Niftyverse stand apart from other metaverses is our games being the centerpiece. Walk into our arcade room filled with fun mini-games or venture to destinations on the map to jump into our classic titles like Nifty Smashers and Nifty Kart.
While Nifty League focuses on building a decentralized game platform with titles such as Nifty Smashers and other Nintendo-inspired games, NiftyVerse stands at the heart of our ecosystem tying everything together. It's not only the central lobby system or launch point for many of these games, but the main hub for all social interactions (and quite frankly our biggest game in and of itself).
If you're a creative type, don't miss this opportunity - we will have an asset store for you to design assets such as buildings or trees and list them for sale based on your defined limits and pricing. Do you want a cool DEGEN theme park or Cyber Kongz meetup? Build out the NiftyVerse to whatever your heart desires!
One of the first games we'd like to introduce to the NiftyVerse is a fun battle royale, codename 'GEM HUNTER'. Development kicked off in August 2023 with help from an external game studio as part of our test run transitioning to a DAO and polishing our public services/SDK.
We are working with the Immutable X team to launch our items marketplace. Offerings will include cool skins, weapons, consumable items, and more to enhance your DEGENS in-game. While some items may be cool cosmetic additions, many will include NFTL multipliers for play-&-earn.
Items will be sold via NFTL in limited quantities. 70% of all proceeds will be burned while the remainder will be sent to the DAO for its initial revenue stream.
We will gradually transfer ownership of Nifty League to our DAO in order to decentralize the platform and encourage others to build with us! Our vision is to power rapid growth and development through community contributions enabling us to build a gaming platform like no other. Simply put, DAOs are the future. We see only one route to becoming the world's leading gaming platform and that's by building together. 💜
Options below are TBD!
Land parcels give you ownership in the NiftyVerse. Each DEGEN NFT will recieve 1 free plot of land if and when the mint goes live. As a land holder you can build freely on your parcels as long as they meet platform guidelines. For larger developments that span across a region we will introduce an HOA model for build proposals.
Oh... and it's probably worth noting the land and assets will be sold with NFTL (a portion of which will be burned).
Following our NiftyVerse launch we will introduce cool pets for your DEGENS! A lot of community members have asked us to dust off and bring back Satoshi's Mint-O-Matic, and we couldn't agree more!
DEGEN NFT holders will receive whitelist spots so our community can create pets at their leisure. A public offering will follow for any remaining pets. If you missed the first minting experience be sure to keep this one on your calendar!
It's important to note that any subsequent games will be voted upon by the DAO. Early development of Nifty Tennis started in 2022, making Tennis a top release candidate. We plan to accommodate all playstyles whether playing competitively or just for fun.
Old school classics are core to our game offerings as we recognize the power of reliving childhood favorites with a Web3 twist. Own your characters & karts and get ready to race for NFTL!
As our platform grows and demand increases for DEGENs - we may consider introducing new tribes. Do note that the final decision to go this route will rest with the DAO.
