World of Ether is an Ethereum-based crypto collectible game launched earlier in 2018. Find out how it works today in our review.
What Is World of Ether?
World of Ether is an online game based on the Ethereum blockchain. The game revolves around collectible virtual “eggs”. You buy and egg, collect eggs, and watch the eggs hatch and grow into monsters.
In World of Ether, players called “explorers” battle, breed, and collect monsters. You can earth ETH by raising and selling monsters. Your monsters level up and gain experience from battling. You can also get permanent credits by discovering a new monster.
One of the unique things about World of Ether is that, unlike many other crypto collectible games, in-game items and monsters aren’t procedurally generated. Everything in the game is custom-made and highly-stylized. It’s being designed to compete artistically with top mainstream video games.
The game was first announced in January 2018 and, as of April, is preparing to launch. You can purchase an egg online today at WorldOfEther.com. Your egg will hatch when the game launches.
How Does World Of Ether Work?
World of Ether players collect monsters called “Etherians”. You can store, sell, and breed your Etherians on the Ethereum blockchain. Your collectible, digital Etherians are securely stored on the Ethereum blockchain. You can also spend ETH on eggs or pay to discover hundreds of new monsters.
Players can also breed to discover new monsters. You can breed your way to a legendary monster, for example. Or, you can buy an egg and test your luck.
“World of Ether is filled with many Etherians waiting to be discovered,” explains the official website. “Be the first to discover a new species and get rewarded.”
Once you have Etherians, you can battle them against other players. Battling your Etherians with other players allows you to level them up, increasing your chances of breeding rare monsters.
In World of Ether, monsters are separated into four grades of rarity, including common, uncommon, rare, and legendary. There are five types of monsters, including sun, ocean, life, death, and astral.
Initially, World of Ether will feature 200 monsters. There’s a rare chance that players can introduce new monsters by breeding. However, the chances of this taking place are low because World of Ether wants to maintain rarity among monsters – they don’t want the marketplace flooded with new and unfamiliar monsters.
As of April 2018, World of Ether is still in the pre-launch phase. Players can contribute ETH to the project and purchase an egg. Hold onto your egg until the full game launches. At this point, your egg will hatch into its very own monster, at which point you’ll be able to battle with other users’ monsters, breed to make new and rare monsters, or sell your monster for ETH.
The reason World of Ether is decentralized is because all core game logic is handled by decentralized smart contracts. These smart contracts have algorithms that give the game a fair and transparent playing field. There’s no way for the creators of the game to flood the market with monsters for their own profit, for example, nor can they influence the outcomes of battles or change the core rules of the game.

Who’s Behind World of Ether?
World of Ether was created by the co-founder of the world’s largest Ethereum meetup group and his brother, a senior developer at GitHub. The founding team include Alain Goldman (Founder and Game Architect) and Stanley Goldman (Founder and Lead Developer).
The founding team has reserved 5,000 eggs on a 1 year vesting schedule for marketing purposes. The project also sold $500,000 worth of pre-sale eggs in its first 48 hours in January 2018. Eggs are priced at around 0.60 ETH per egg, although the price of eggs rises with each sale (the first egg was 0 ETH).
In February 2018, World of Ether announced an affiliate program where you can earn $100 USD for referring gamers to buy a pre-sale egg.
World Of Ether Conclusion
World of Ether is an Ethereum-based collectible item game based around the idea of battling monsters. There will be 200 monsters available at launch, although players may be able to introduce new monsters through breeding. World of Ether will also have features like P2P battling that allows monsters to gain experience and level up.
As of April 2018, World of Ether is still preparing to launch. Gamers are encouraged to purchase eggs today, then hold onto the eggs until the game is launched. Eggs are priced at around 0.60 ETH per egg.
