we hosted an amazing AMA with Dark Frontiers on the 30th of September
And here we will put some of the best questions:
Q1. Can you introduce yourself to our community?
I’m Sylvia Savi, Co-founder and CMO at Gamestarter.com. I’m also responsible for the marketing of DarkFrontiers.com and PixelPix.com
I’ve been a marketer for around ten years now, working with startups mostly, although I’ve started my career at IBM. I’ve founded my own digital agency before joining Gamestarter full-time.
I’m in crypto since late 2017 when I joined a crypto VC, as their marketing lead. I was taking care of all the investment projects in terms of marketing. Although I was fascinated by crypto before, that was when I really learned the ins and outs 🔥
So it’s really good to be back in crypto after a break 💙 I really enjoy this space and the people
Q2. Can you briefly tell us what is Dark Frontiers ?
So for those who don’t know, Dark Frontiers is the first Gamestarter Originals game. We decided to position ourselves a bit like Netflix – feature our own original content.
Our mission is to bring quality blockchain gaming to mass adoption and introduce a unique approach of utilising NFTs and P2E concepts.
Here’s the teaser trailer if you haven’t seen it yet: https://youtu.be/mw2ZYsAioT8
The actual game will look pretty similar. We are making the gameplay trailer as we speak, should be up next week before the IGO on Gamestarter 🎉
The idea behind Dark Frontiers is to merge the following:
- high-quality blockchain gaming
- multiplatform (PC/iOS, VR, browser-based)
- latest trends in gaming and crypto space
- strong P2E concepts
- constant world expansion and updates
But in short, inspiration struck us, and we wanted to make a really cool game on blockchain. Quality is very important for us, so we’re trying to reflect that in all that we do. There are too many blockchain games already that look like they were developed 20 years ago by a blind bat 😄
So we wanted to bring something better to the community ☺️
But of course, because we don’t want to take 10 years to develop the perfect game, we want to merge that quality with quick development and update it on the go.
So the first version (strategy) of Dark Frontiers will come out in the next 1-1.5 months
Q3. Let’s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans?
For the initial marketing push, we’re launching on 4 hottest launchpads: Dao Maker, Gamestarter, GameFi and Red Kite.
We are also involving over 100 influencers and plan to onboard even more high-profile ones in the coming weeks.
We will also engage big mainstream Twitchers and non-crypto influencers once the game is available to play 🔥 Hope that will bring more adoption to crypto. Gaming truly is the key to that 🗝
Here are the dates:
Dao Maker – Oct 1st
Gamestarter – Oct 5th
GameFi – Oct 6th
Red Kite – Oct 6th
$DARK lists in exchanges – Oct 7th 💎
The game is in development and new content is coming very soon 🚀
⚡️New gameplay trailer
We plan to release the new gameplay trailer next week. And then of course release more and more as we move closer to the launch of the game.
And the first strategy version will be out in 1 -1.5 months, where you will be able to earn $DARK by playing 🔥
Q4. Every project has a story behind their name, Can you tell us more about the story behind this? Who are the team behind this project? can tell us their background?
Let me explain what the name ‘Dark Frontiers’ means. Frontiers = new unexplored territories, but because it’s in space, it’s uninhabitable, cold, empty, dark = DARK. So Dark Frontiers is about survival, mystery and beautiful but cold and empty scenery
Dark Frontiers is a Gamestarter Originals game, so the team is the same as Gamestarters (you can find the team on the website). The core team is based in northern europe, but recently the whole Gamestarter team expanded 3 times over, so there are around 30 people working on our projects
The team is lead by Andrius Miron, who has a background in game development. he’s also responsible for the art direction, so that’s why everything we do looks so good!
We also have a killer development and designer team. All of them are experienced in game development (one dev worked in Unity 3d). So we’re up for the challenge
Q5. DeFi is one of the hottest and most sought-after topics in the blockchain space right now. Can you share your opinion on DeFi with us? Do you think DeFi will disrupt the current financial system? What is Dark Frontiers’s approach to the DeFi sector?
I would say GameFi is the hottest topic in blockchain at the moment. It’s because gaming is the key to crypto adoption 🗝
it will definitely bring more people to crypto and that’s what we need!
Dark Frontiers will feature the best of gamefi practices – staking, NFTs and yield generation
And here we will put best questions from our members and Dark Frontiers:
Q1) I do not consider myself a professional gamer, in fact I do not play regularly. However, Dark Frontiers caught my attention and I am interested in starting to play it. Do you think that someone like me, who is not a regular or professional gamer, can easily understand DF?
Absolutely! We aim for maximum simplicity and fun in gaming! Unlike other games, you won’t have to spend hours learning how to play. It will be intuitive and seamless
Q2) One of the serious problems with #play2earn games is that as a result of their success, players have flooded the market with an oversupply of tokens, causing their value to drop. What plans do you have to prevent the price of the $DF token from plummeting for similar reasons?
$DARK token will be vested, so the initial supply of $DARK will be low, and will gradually increase with time (as the player count increases).
$DARK will serve as an in-game energy unit. Energy is needed to power the gameplay – travel, mine and merge NFTs. It can also be mined by claiming land on different planets. So $DARK will be very much like the heart and the blood of the game.
$DARK is a BSC token, but it will have a bridge to ERC-20, which will help prevent the huge gas fees.
$GAME will also be featured, as DARK FRONTIERS has dual tokenomics. $GAME will act as a booster to certain in-game processes, and you will also be able to buy NFTs with $GAME
Naturally the more users will play this game and find it engaging the higher $DARK will soar 🚀
As Dark Frontiers ir designed to be updated over time, it’s not a one-time release, $DARK value will go up gradually as the world expands
Q3) Can you list killer features of Your Project that makes it ahead of its competitors? What is the competitive advantage your platform has that you feel most confident about ?
Dark Frontiers is unlike any other project, so we’re not worried about competition. It’s going to be visually stunning, interesting gameplay, also many gameplay options to choose from, multi platform (+ VR), strong P2E features and of course, our super nice and supportive community. Come to our Discord – they’re just the best, we just reached 11k members 🎉 http://discord.gg/gamestarter
We will also release it pretty fast. It will be released in segments, the first part (strategy) will come out within a month (alpha version). We will consult with the community and keep adjusting it on the go. And the open world, 3rd person RPG will be available in the first part of 2022.
Q4) What are the highlights of Dark_Frontiers’s technology and products that you believe will help you succeed? How revenue does Dark_Frontiers generate to sustain the project, and what plans do you have to attract more users in the future ?
NFTs powered by Polygon
$DARK token on Binance Smart Chain.
Unity 3d – game engine.
Webgl for the web-based version of the Dark Frontiers gameplay.
Revenue Streams: NFT Sales and transaction-based fee from in-game assets trading.
Q5) There are many NFT/Games projects. How will you bring in mass adoption for people to use your platform compared to competitors? And a lot of projects have initial hype and eventually die out. What is your marketing and development plan like?
I think I answered the competitive part above.
As for maintaining the hype:
🚀Dark Frontiers is heavily promoted to Gamestarter’s community (10k on Discord, 47k on Telegram, 78k on Twitter). Dark Frontiers will also benefit from Gamestarter’s network and partnerships.
👩🚀With the continuous game updates, exchange listings and advertising to crypto and non-crypto audiences, Dark Frontiers will steadily grow its player base.
We’ll also engage big non-crypto influencers and famous Twitchers.
Q6) Do you have any plan for community ambassador program to reward more users and create local community channel for those users who weak in English?
Yes we have! and the benefits include:

Q8) Crypto market is in recent bear market and in this scenario it is very hard for investor to trust and invest on any project. How do you see this challenges and why should we invest on your project?
