Token Description & Project Background

Mines of Dalarnia is a Play-to-Earn action-adventure game developed by Workinman Interactive, with AP’s consisting of Keith McCullough (Game Director & COO).

Set in year 11,752, the futuristic game allows users to ‘mine’ and explore the virtual world, upgrade their gear, unlock secret areas and quests, and find rare in-game items.

The game itself went live in June 2022 - the project’s native token, DAR, was first sold in October 2021.

According to their litepaper, the Mines of Dalarnia team set out ‘to create gameplay that players have fun and stick with, creating a community that will ultimately make Mines of Dalarnia a world that players can enjoy for years to come. While the buzz is currently about the “Earn” in “Play to Earn,” we believe the “Play” is critically important as well. A game that many players love to play will grow a vibrant in-game economy, which will make it easier to earn.

DAR fuels the game economy – it is used to trade equipment and skins on the marketplace and renting land.
