Welcome to the DinoX half-year recap! Although the NFT gaming sector and overall crypto market have been struggling of late, our team has powered through focusing on the game development of DINOX World and the expansion of the DinoX Ecosystem!
A ton of milestones were reached in the first half of 2022. One of the biggest accomplishments was the successful launch of DINOX World Beta back in January, which set us up for a very productive year thus far! We know darn well that without the support of our amazing DinoX Fam of gamers and enthusiasts we wouldn’t be the project we are today! All of our successes are shared with each and every one of you, so thank you all!

Let’s dive into a quick recap of our largest accomplishments in the first half of the year which included many partnerships, community giveaways, holiday-themed events, Gen 1 egg hatching, Land Sales, taking home first place in Battle of the Dapps, Single-Staking Pools, Avatar Sales, and more!

DINOX World Development Updates
In February of 2022, we started a DINOX World Development Update article series that gives our readers an inside look at what’s being developed by our team and a sneak peek at what’s coming in the near future. We’ve had great feedback from the community about these updates, and we plan to continue informing our DinoX Fam of our progress!
Here’s a quick outline of the Development Update series so far:
Focused mostly on early bug fixes but also redesigned the dino details page, my dinos page, and health bars in battle as well as implemented a fun V-day-themed background with particle animations.
Fixed more bugs. Focused on making the gameplay smoother. Introduced a camera shake feature for a “frontline” feeling on the battlefield and coin flip mechanics for battles. Enhanced visuals of the dinos on the battlefield where smaller dinosaurs are displayed in swarms or packs as well as new particle animations.
Large focus on refactoring and behind-the-scenes efforts to make future updates easier on the development backend. Fixed multiple bugs and laid the groundwork for new implementations of UI improvements, graphics, visuals, and Avatars.
Implemented a new UI to make it easier to understand what’s happening on the battlefield and added 1000 more levels. Also, lots of work on Avatars, new enemy types, and gameplay mechanics for the next evolution of Encounters.
Focus on preparing for a big update and implementation of many new features in DINOX World, including turn-based gameplay, 2 actions per turn instead of 1, gradual unlocking of action cards in a dino’s deck, several visual improvements, Avatars, and the introduction of our in-game soft currency.
Now that we’ve had a chance to look back at the progress DinoX has had over the past 6 months, it’s time to take a peek into the future!
Currently, we’re mere days away from our largest DINOX World Beta update since its launch back in January! This new update has a ton of new features being introduced, many of which were detailed in their own articles or were mentioned in some previous development updates. The new features include:
- Turn-based combat — Combatants attack in turns instead of at the same time.
- Two actions per round instead of one.
- Dino Swap — a new action where a player can switch the positions of his dinos on the battlefield.
- Progressive Action Cards — Action Cards will activate gradually each round that dino is on the battlefield.
- In-game soft currency — used for upgrading starter dinos without using NFT Liberation Crystals.
- Avatars — the first implementation of Avatars where they will be visually present in battle! More utility will be added in further releases.
In addition to the game updates, we’ve got some highly-anticipated new features being introduced in the DinoX Ecosystem very soon as well:
- Website & Portal Upgrade
- P2P Marketplace
- DinoX World Map
DinoX remains busy delivering everything we can to make DINOX World a fun and entertaining game for everyone to play. The first 6 months of 2022 have been good productivity and development-wise and we don’t plan to slow down any time soon. Thanks for your support DinoX Fam, and we’ll keep BUIDL-ing the future of NFT games!
