What restricts us?
Lack of users
Lack of funding
No prototype to show for funding / user acquisition
Lots of competition, need a way to stand out from other projects
Target users may be reluctant to due to fear / distrust of crypto
Legal issues with underage players using crypto
Business problems we are solving
(Why do we need a website / whitepaper?)
Need for a communication platform
Present our value proposition, why we are different and reasons to invest and play
Collect feedback, find out whether our vision is supported from players and investors

Circle, and weird things inside, like evolving world. People will be able to see weird creatures doing weird stuff. It’s going be a rotating circle around this world. You see like a blur, so people feel intrigue like OMG what it’s that. And this rotating thing will be like small chapters, why us, game, invests. And then you press and you see the whole scene about that chapter. You don’t need to scroll, you click on what you’re interested in and you see how the world changes towards that chapter.

simple landing structure: header, hero, social proof (supporters), features (what you can do inside the game), footer.

hero image, something appealing at first sight. Bottom, serious part: safety, who we are.
Right: the news; dynamic, up-to-date content, also a section to highlight what the community is doing. Something that is changing, that it’s new every day.

Hero image, you can see the game, the art and the concept (e.g. island and a concert). The image is 2d static, but when you scroll it you see some movement (like in ). Then key aspects of the game. Then less important information
Bruno D.
Loved Marina’s style. Show most important features of the game.
Action points

Define quantifiable criteria (metrics) and milestones for defining the success of the project i.e. “6 months from now, we will have a growing user base of at least 1k users per day”; “users will interact with the website / game for at least 40-60 minutes per day on average”, etc.
Design a great landing page with a “wow” effect which clearly states the value proposition. This should make up for the lack of a prototype, showing the game’s main features and appealing to both users and investors. → Web designer / content writer
Define user personas and a marketing strategy for each. For each target customer segment, find representatives for marketing and user research. These could be found in competitors’ communities, or people who are potentially interested but still unaware of crypto and NFT games.
Define onboarding and retention strategy for “curious” users. Define user requirements for those users who are not blockchain-savvy so that we can design an optimal onboarding experience that will make them want to come back to the project.
Consult legal expert of regions where launch is planned. To make sure to comply with legal policies once the game is launched, should we have players younger than 18 y.o. May also look into how other projects are dealing with this.
