Inspired by popular pet-raising game experiences like Pokemon GO or Tamagotchi, the Walken app and gameplay experience is designed to cater to all types of players — young or old, whether crypto-experts or relative novices. With a slick, easy-to-understand UI/UX, the Walken experience has been carefully designed to clearly and easily explain all the critical concepts and mechanics that users need to understand to fully engage with the Walken app.
Players will discover and engage with more sophisticated and complex gameplay systems as they progress in-game and explore more aspects of the Walken ecosystem. Using the in-built motion detection and tracking systems of smartphones and other wearable smart devices, Walken is able to capture step counts and physical activity whilst algorithmically filtering out cheating and progress spoofing.
Central to the Walken experience is the unique CAThlete character that each player gets upon signing up for the app. Building on the success of social-fitness apps like Strava, Apple Activity, and Peloton; Walken uses a comprehensive gamification system to turn players’ steps and other physical activity into Gems — an in-game soft currency that can be used to upgrade your CAThlete’s speed, strength, and stamina; all critical stats for competing with and against other players! Players are also encouraged to form tight-knit communities by sharing their progress and accomplishments on social media, as well as through in-game leaderboards and other community features.
Players will be able to compete in randomly matchmade Competitions against other CAThletes in which their skills, total level, and steps taken will all factor into the total rewards earnable in victory. Whilst players will all receive a single, unique, free-to-use CAThlete upon sign-up; each CAThlete will only be able to compete for a certain number of times per day before it needs a rest. In order to participate in more competitions, players will then need to purchase additional CAThletes on the NFT marketplace.
Down the line, the ability to breed two existing CAThletes together to mint a wholly new, completely unique NFT character will also be introduced. Upon winning competitions, players are rewarded with WLKN tokens, fungible governance, and staking token that can be staked for rewards providing access to additional in-app features, and providing the holder with voting rights in the future of the Walken ecosystem. By continuously upgrading and improving the stats and equipment of their CAThletes, players will be able to increase the amount of WLKN earned in each competition.
