Last year we added MNGO & AL GOANNA characters to Cosmic Champs PVP battle arena and they were both a huge hit. There is many more Algorand projects that are a great fit for our PVP game. Unfortunatelly it’s cost prohibitive for us to do such fun collabs as making a fully animated, AR ready, game ready, 3d NFT takes lots of resources. If funded, we will create and distribute AlgoLeagues Algoman x CosmicChamps NFTs for free to help promote AlgoLeagues (one of the OG Algorand projects) to our players and our game to the their large user base that is also present outside of Algorand ecosystem. Such collabs work because they address different types of audiences and thus help spark interest to explore other parts of ecosystem or Algorand itself. To get better idea here is two of our recent collab NFTs that are playable in our game: MNGO ,PEPE



Experience with Algorand

For the last 2 years, we have been building a p2e game on Algorand called Cosmic Champs. We are innovators in the 3d NFT space with our fully animated 3d NFTs that are used in our game and also have utility outside of the game itself (3d viewer, AR viewer).
We have a strong understanding of the NFT space, the technical specifications, and the supporting infrastructure available. This positions us well to deliver a strong product for other Algorand projects to use and benefit from.

Present Proposal

After our proposal was approved in last period we have seen great success with the two projects that were selected (Al Goanna and MNGO). There were a bigger collab campaigns created around each NFT that engaged both communities for an example we did a guest Dream quest with Mostly frens where participants were able to win the NFTs as reward.
We would like to repeat this cross community collabs and bring some healty engagement between some of the OG Algorand communities. This time we wish to join forces with AlgoLeagues - an Algorand OG project that has built a loyal and active community that spans across multiple discord servers outside of Algorand itself and create a signature NFT character (multimint) that will be fully functional in our game.
We will provide these NFTs for free to AlgoLeagues community and will do an exciting campaign to ensure fair and fun dsitribution. To get better idea here is two of our recent collab NFTs that are playable in our game: MNGO ,PEPE

Future Blueprint

In future we would like to create more of these NFTs focusing on cross-chain/non-algo proejct collabs to bring new users into our game and introduce multitude of algorand OG projects to these new players. E.g. focus on bringin new people to algorand itself and showcase them a select subset of trusted OG Algorand proejcts to get them started.

Benefits for the community

These NFTs have cascading effect. More of them we make and introduce to our game, the more cross community engagement and promotions cahn ahppen organically. They promote other Algorand projects to players of our game and tehy promote our game to wider NFT community. We provide these NFTs (at no cost) for other projects to use within their community in any way they like. Using our innovative AR ready, game ready, fully animated 3d models for NFTs will also help push narrative that NFTs can be so much more than just 2d pictures.

My same questions from xGov-96 apply here:

Based on your prior two collabs, do you have any metrics/stats to indicate that these NFTs increase usage of the app? If so, can you share that?

How do you determine which communities to build and provide free NFTs to?

Hey, absolutely.
So while it is quite hard to determine an exact point of entry for a new user (we are not at this time spending a lot of time on developing custom metrics gathering), I can say that our active unique user accounts interacting with the game(played at least one game) increased by 95 in December. Which is a significant number.

We did have a branded-bots campaign and mngo dream quest active in that month so i’m unable to give you exact results for each of them - but for an example cosmic champs x MNGO dream quest, where you can participate to earn these collab nfts, has about 300 users participating weekly - i would imagine its a healthy mix of CC commuinity as well as Stitch userbase. The exposure on X alone (for the two announcements - dream quest + free NFTs in game) have over 7300 views combined.

Again i know these are not hard numbers, but i would say its pretty encouraging especially as we are really looking ot engage all involved communities and not just doing it the least effort route.

To determine which project to do collab with, for previous period we left it to the community to decide or atleast suggest prime candidates. But since our backlog of potential collabs is growing at alarming rate - we had to pick the ones that resonate with our game the best e.g. fit in the game environment most naturally. And also have to cap it at two, as this is our capacity to keep quality of the collab at respectable level.

the other criteria is obviously the og status and reach the projects have, and especially if they were willing to help us & promote us in the past when we were new to the Algo scene.
