Đăng bởi TuyenLe vào July 30, 2021

Wanaka Farm is a relaxing blockchain-based game inspired by a town in the South Island of New Zealand called Wanaka.

Online gaming market has existed in the world for quite a while. When participating in online games, users can have fun, connect with friends all around the world as well as freely express themselves in this online space. However, to get those benefits, players will need to pay fees to receive the mental values.

The great development of Blockchain technology and Non-fungible token in recent years has created a revolutionary turning point for online gaming. A new online gaming genre was born, which is Play-To-Earn Crypto & NFT Blockchain Games. With this new gaming genre, players will no longer have to pay fees just to get traditional benefits, but will directly earn money from the game they are playing.

1.  What is Wanaka Farm?

Wanaka Farm is a relaxing blockchain-based game inspired by a town in the South Island of New Zealand called Wanaka.

At Wanaka Farm, players will immerse themselves in the role of a happy farmer by cultivating lands, crop farming, breeding pets, and decorating their own virtual land. From then, each participant will contribute to building a whole metaverse combining multiple unique customized farms.

By integrating of NFT into the game, each item or character will be unique. This is one of the ways to make the game can be appealing and engaging, giving the player the feeling of being the only one who owns the item in this space. Each item in the game has its own uniqueness, rarity, advantages and is considered a valuable digital asset, and are tradable within the cryptocurrency market / NFT marketplaces.

Play, Relax and Earn

Unlike some other games where players have to compete with others, Wanaka Farm’s core appeal is based on collaboration between users. The game is intended to have an appeal, targeted towards different players from different walks of life, regardless of age, gender, occupation, and social classes. We would certainly like to bring a different meaning of farming to as many crypto enthusiasts as possible, but we would also like to be appealing to non crypto natives as well as the game develops further.

Players will already be able to play both on desktop computers and mobile phones to experience and control the game characters in 2D. In the medium term, the game will also be available on PlayStation with AR/VR compatible mode. AR and VR compatibility is targeted to be available in Q2 2022, to be followed with PlayStation VR integration in Q3 2022.

2.  Wanaka Farm Universe

2.1.     Becoming a Farmer

To start the game, each “future farmer” of Wanaka Farm needs to create an account and will be distributed an in-game avatar to begin. The account will be linked to a wallet (like Metamask) from where the farmer will store his in-game items and confirm transactions.

To purchase lands, players can go directly to Wanaka in-game marketplace or multi-marketplaces such as Mochi.Market and Binance NFT. The lands have limited supply and are created as NFT. After purchasing a land, players are free to decorate his or her own land to their liking with various in-game items such as houses, lakes, decorations, pets, plants and other items which can be additionally purchased on the market. The owner of the land has the right to cultivate or sublease it.

The image below shows a simplified scenario describing 2 options that new players can choose when starting the game.

Although it is a free market, players are not able to take others’ land freely. This is because when a land is rented, the transaction is carried out through a smart contract, thereby providing protection to the land owners by ensuring that the lessee won’t be able to resell the land in the marketplace. Further, after the rental expires, that specific land will return to the rightful owner at the end of the rental period.

2.2.     Lands

Lands – in the form of NFT – can be obtained by participating in events or through purchasing in a secondary market such as Wanaka’s in-game marketplace, Mochi.Market or Binance NFT. The supply of land is limited in quantity. Each land is unique with its respective characteristics. Land’s characteristics are set randomly which will define their rarity.

There are 4 types of land that players can acquire from dropping events.

  • Basic lands
  • Lake
  • Forest
  • Sea

Initially, only basic lands will be made available for the 1 st sale event with a limited supply. Other types of lands (lake, forest, sea) will be available after basic lands sales.

4 different land types will have their own characteristics according to the sections below.


Like in New Zealand, there are four seasons in this game: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. However, as part of the uniqueness of each land, not every land will have 4 seasons. The maximum number of seasons that are attributed to each land is randomly set.

The difference in seasons will create a unique experience because each growing item can be farmed only on specific season(s). To maximize the yield for a given land, players are able to find appropriate growing items in the marketplace.


There are 6 rarity levels for each land: common, uncommon, rare, legendary, mythic, immortal.

According to land’s rarity, the growing cycle of the farming / petting activity may have different levels of speed.

In addition, the lands also have different levels.


Experiences are acquired by farming and/or petting. The longer a player spends time on farming, the higher the level will be. With the new level, the player may unlock new growing items that can be farmed on that land, as well as open up more farming slots.

Some of the activities that can be done to help increase the land’s level are:

  • Growing and preparing slots
  • Plant trees
  • Irrigate trees
  • Feed and grow pets
  • Harvest crops

2.3.     In-game Assets


Seed items are fundamental assets that players need in order to begin farming and grow products in Wanaka Farm. Upon starting the game, the player will need to purchase them on the Wanaka Farm’s game store or alternatively to purchase seed items from other players at Wanaka Farm’s marketplace.

Further, seed items can be either normal or genetically modified. Players are able to create a genetically modified seed by putting harvested items into the Breeding House.


These are items (plants, growing pets) that are still in the growing process that are not yet harvested. Each growing item evolves from stage 1 to stage 3 until they can be harvested. They can be traded on Wanaka’s marketplace among players according to their needs.

Lands can also be traded on Wanaka’s marketplace with or without growing items.


Harvested items are items that you have already harvested. They can be traded on Wanaka Farm’s Marketplace. Harvested items are sometimes necessary to complete quests and receive rewards. Some players may also want to have harvested items in order to optimize their farms.


Product items are the products obtained from harvested items (for example, food made according to a recipe, which requires some ingredients).

The product items are tradeable in the marketplace and may be useful to complete certain quests as well.


Building items are decoration assets such as fences and roads. These items can be acquired through participating in special events. Certain events will likely have limited edition items as well, with the decorative feel mimicking certain seasons such as during Christmas, Lunar New Year, and Valentine’s Day.

Players can freely trade them on Wanaka’s marketplace or use them to decorate their farm.

2.4.     Energy

Each player is attributed a limited working energy per day. If you want to improve your productivity rate, you will need to seek new working forces from other players that have surplus energy to offer or those who don’t have land to farm.

2.5.     Production House

Production house is a facility for players to combine harvested items to get product items.

2.6.     Items Life Cycle

The image below describes a multiple life cycle of an item. According to their needs and game strategy, players can choose the life path cycle that can be applied to each of their items.

3.  Game activities

3.1.     Feed and Grow

Just like real farmers, farmers of Wanaka Farm have the ability to choose whether to buy seeds or pets or to take care of both on their farm according to their preferences or the suitability of the environment they have for each species.

3.2.     Harvest

Harvested items harvested from the farm will be owned by players in the form of NFT.

3.3.     Produce

Harvested items from the farm can also be used to produce other products. For illustration please refer to the image below.

3.4.     Combination of Crossbreeding

Players can combine seeds or pets to create new breeds according to their parents’ genes. The image below depicts the process in the breeding house to create genetically modified seed items.

In order to create new seed items, players will need to combine 2 “harvested items”. However, depending on their probabilities of success, not all combined seeds will produce genetically modified seed items.

For each breeding operation, players can receive between 2 to 4 new seeds.

3.5.     Trading NFTs

Players can trade NFTs (lands, seed items, growing items, harvested items, product items, building items, etc) at Wanaka Farm’s marketplace whenever they feel like to.
