Hey everyone, it’s been a week.
As you all know, Ukraine was invaded by Russia last week. Once again, the people of that country have banded together to stand up for themselves against giants.
And they’re fucking doing it.
But as you might not know, nearly half of the Mars Colony team is Ukrainian, and most others are Russian. None of us want this war. Of course the team is standing together. Everyone is safe and continues to build this grand dream of ours.
But with so many of us directly affected, it’s been a heavy week. Thank you for the support and encouragement you’ve all offered. Seriously, it’s meant the world.
Despite everything, we haven’t slowed down. From a Harmony investment that over 300 of us decided together (that’s more than most fully-fledged DAOs!), and the next big release just a day or two away, there have been many highs amid the lows this week.
— We finished testing land visualization and resolved any bugs we found.
— We finished configuring the ability to place buildings on land plots.
— We added a zoom feature to the plot view.
— We built the UI kit for land interaction/plot view.
— We are finalizing the initial economics of in-game quests
— We continued building the complexity mechanics for avatar generations, such as skin color and attributes.
— We’re preparing to launch the next version of Mars Colony, fixing bugs before official launch.
— We held AMA after AMA (mostly in Discord, one on Twitter Spaces). You rocked them all with your ideas and questions.
— We secured $250,000 in investing funding from Harmony’s Project X
— You voted to pass the Project X investment Proposal nearly unanimously.
— We teased you on Twitter, a lot
— Ukraine survived the week, and stood strong for itself.
Thanks for being a part of this journey. We wouldn’t be where we are without you.
Oh, and Слава Україні!
