In the fast-moving world of crypto and NFT artwork, one of the questions that frequently seems to get raised is how far can NFT’s go? And will they hit a ceiling and top out? One company has decided to take NFTs and make them even more useful than decorative art or valuable to flip.
Introducing: Top P.I., the first NFT game. Yes, you read that correctly, game developers Vakkuda are creating an interactive, battle royale-style game centered around and using NFTs.
TOP P.I NFT Game Story
Described as a whodunnit murder mystery battle royale which is fun for all, Top P.I. follows the story of Dude Parker, an enigmatic billionaire with an established ancestral history, who lost his wife and son to gruesome murders years ago and has now started Top P.I. agency to pull together the best private investigators and seek justice against the criminals of the underworld.
As a player, you will first take a Top P.I. quiz, which if you pass and can prove your sleuthing skills will enable you to access a link to earn a mint, 1 of 2000. 500 tokens will be whitelisted and reserved to bypass the quiz. Once you have your NFT, you will gain access to the Top P.I. store, where you will be able to acquire utilities to help you in the game.
You will have to search the Top P.I. website, Discord, Twitter, and YouTube as well as the wider internet in order to gain clues and help you to solve the mystery of the game – each episode containing a full mystery, while the season is thought to have one overarching theme tying all the smaller mysteries together (though this detail has not yet been officially confirmed.)
Top P.I., while badge traits courtesy of tokens will allow you to get certain clues before other players and increase the value and rarity of your NFT player.
Upgrades will change weekly, and according to game developer Vakkuda, the game is planned for 6 seasons with 6 episodes per season.
At the end of each episode, players who have not solved the series of clues will be eliminated, and unable to participate in the game until the start of the next season.
As players get disqualified each episode, Ethereum will get deposited into the winner’s pool, which will be split between the last 100 players in the game at the end of the season.
A leaderboard will be available on the game’s website to track progress and player numbers throughout the season, updating in real-time, alongside NFT listings, art release dates, and a counter for the amount of Ethereum currently held in the winner’s pool for the end of the season.
