End: March 24, 2019 20:00:00 UTC


NextColony is a last days space simulation with RPG elements and tradeable collectibles built on the Steem blockchain. This game will change your life, rescue Steem and make this environment the most imaginative place in the entire universe.

Okay, let's go...

The NextColony Team is expanding. It is a great honor for us to announce that Holger (@holger80) is an integral part of the core team. There is no developer on the Steem who has never heard of Holger before because he is a smart and exemplary Steemian and by the way also the father of beem, a Python library to interact with the Steem blockchain, which is used intensively here on Steem. NextColony is thus taking another strong step forward because the database structure of NextColony is in professional hands with Holger.

We have formed a superb German-speaking team and are ready to take off. First, we will make NextColony known on Steem and second in the whole cryptosphere. We have set ourselves big goals. We do justice to the brand Made in Germany and work through the defined plan in a structured, consistent, passionate and conscientious manner.

NextColony is build by an experienced and highly motivated team. The five-headed team is Holger (@holger80), Jens (@jarunik), Oli (@oliverschmid), Robert (@bronkong), and Tim (@rondras). The industrious Platuro (@platuro) works for us as a highly committed mercenary.

The shareholdings in NextColony are distributing as follows:

  • Partner: Holger (10%), Jarunik (10%)
  • Founder: Robert (26,66%), Tim (26,66%), Oli (26,66%)

Our thanks go to the entire German-speaking community that has been supporting us since day 1. You are awesome, thank you!

In the meantime, we have developed 4 of 7 core areas.


We attach great importance to the core values of this decentralized system and will build a fair and transparent game. We believe in the core values of decentralized structures and that they have the potential to make the world a better place.

We have the goal of creating an imaginative and enormously large universe that offers great adventures. We get our motivation from our strong community and our fuel is donuts and coffee. Join us on our journey to distant galaxies and build your colony the way you always wanted it to be.

So far, we have published very less information. Exactly that was planned. The early start of the auctions gives us the opportunity to start marketing while working on NextColony in the background. The first of three auctions will end in a few hours. As soon as the second auction is ending in about two weeks, we will open the gates.


The first auction achieved 4066 STEEM

Here are some insights:

The following resources exist:

  • Ore
  • Coal
  • Copper
  • Uranium

Uranium will play a central role in NextColony and will be a highly coveted commodity. You should be careful with your uranium, because you need it almost constantly, even when moving your fleet.


Here you get to the press / blogger area:

https://nextcolony.io/press

You will always find fresh material, which you can use in your posts. In the press/blogger section you can get a foretaste of the planets of the next auction.


Only a couple hours until the end of the first auction:

Euch viel Erfolg bei der finalen Entwicklung :)

·

Danke, Eike! :)

Can you please confirm that none of the partners or founders are allowed to participate in the auction using any account under their direct or indirect control?

I think fair and transparent auctions are extremely important. Especially where the winner could defer and it would go to the next bidder, there is a lot of room for potential abuse.

·

I did participate in the auctions initially but did stop to participate once I became clear that I will be a main investor of the project. I do not use any other accounts to bid on the auction neither. The discussions and decision to invest directly into the project did stretch over some time. I did bid during that time of discussions. I did not have any insight into the project while I was bidding. I did stop participation in the auction once we concluded the deal and I got more then the public information into the project.

I hope that clarifies your question for my involvement.

·
·

Thanks for the clarification, I much appreciate it! Your name showing up in both areas was a potential red flag and this helps to clear it up.

I currently play SteemNova, and my alliance is looking forward to checking out NextColony when it launches.

·
·

Thanks for the clarification, @jarunik! :)

Sitting on needles here...

·

Me, too. :)

You guys literally have a dream team of devs. Good luck.

That's definitely the case. Thanks, @holoz0r! :)

quick question: will there be 6 legendary planets with uranium(that we see under the "press" section)?

Interesting. It seems that not much info has been revealed yet, but already the auction price went up 500+ steem per planet.

I guess it is based on the reputation of the team (and maybe it's "made in Germany" - people are willing to pay premium for German goods)

·

marketing = germany = quality ;) see you on the battlefield my friend...

·

No. There will be a total of 9 planets auctioned in 3 auctions. At each auction, 3 planets will be auctioned. In the press you can see a foretaste.

Absolutely.

Is there any Discord channel to discuss?

·

Yeah, a Discord server would be amazing! =)

·
·

It won't be long.

"We have set up the server and we are already working there. We open the server when the game starts. Otherwise, this eats up too much time, which we better use for development. Until then I answer all questions in the comments."

·
·
·

Have seen that, nice! =) Also nice to see that holger80 is working with you guys. :3

·
·
·
·

Yes! :)

·

Thanks for the question, @mys. :)

We have set up the server and we are already working there. We open the server when the game starts. Otherwise, this eats up too much time, which we better use for development. Until then I answer all questions in the comments.

👍😍

I just wanted to clarify when the public will be able to play Next Colony.
At the start of your post you wrote :
“There are only 31 hours left until the end of the auctions. Be ready.”

You then go onto say later in your post:
“The first of three auctions will end in a few hours. As soon as the second auction is ending in about two weeks, we will open the gates.”

My understanding is the public will be able to play Next Colony in appropriately two weeks.

@welshstacker said in the comments:
“Tick tock tick tock..... 36 hours!! It can't come fast enough. I'm hoping for some big things from @nextcolony and I want to be one of the fist to play.”

I just thought you guys might want to clarify this, as I’m really looking forward to the game and want to see it become a success.

Have an awesome day!

As soon as the second auction is finished, we will open the gates.

Our first auction ends in 14 hours, as you can see on the NextColony homepage. A little above the planets is the timer.

·
·

Thanks for replying.

That is what I thought.

Have an awesome day!

You pretend people spend +500STEEM on something there is completely no light about ? no video, empty website (very cool design though), no docu, nothing...

·

I bid based on trust with my investment account powernap. Risk is part of life.

·

@lightproject It is absolutely fine that you are skeptical as you are lacking information. But one thing I can guarantee you: we are not pretending anything. All bids are real. If this is too much for you, no problem.

·
·

Its not "too much for me". I wish I could be all cheered up and everything, at the end of the day, im also invested in this ecosystem and i am happy to see cool new projects..

I just do not understand why would you not wait to let people see more so that they can make a conscious decision on the purchase you are offering.

At the current state of information you provide, you are basically offering a gamble.

·
·
·

That's an offer, not blackmail. :)

·

made in germany too

·

made in germany part ii

Excitement is building up!
I hope to hear some new infos about the planet auction for the "average investors".
And I would love to have as much info as possible about planet stats and gameplay mechanics in order to make a thoughtful decision before investing.
Right now the bidding on the legendary planets is without any stats and info about resource production, which I find to be a poor decision.
Please learn as much as possible from the Drugwars drama...communication and transparency goes a long way!
Good work so far guys!

Thanks for your questions!

There is no planet auction for the "average investors". An auction is an auction.

But we will sell a very small number of rare planets after launch and only sell them to small wallets. I will do this manually and personally.

Informations will rolled out piece by piece.

"Please learn as much as possible from the Drugwars drama"

We do!

Thanks, @masterthematrix! :)

·
·

Ok, somehow I thought there will be more "lower-rarity" planets coming up for auction, before the game starts.
So, that means that every player "except those legendary early investors" will basically all start with the same set of Planets and or ressources?
Or will there be an in-game Shop / market where we can invest some Steem into the Game?
Yeah, I probably already know the answer wait only 30 more hours and for the next post :-)))
I'm just curious about how much "Steem excitement / Investment" I will need to conquer the GALAXY ;-0

·
·
·

We have promised to not forget the small wallets and we keep our promise.

We do not want to sell many planets, planets should be explored in the Galaxy.

"So, that means that every player "except those legendary early investors" will basically all start with the same set of Planets and or ressources?"

Correct.
And a very small number of rare planets. Maybe we will give them away in a contest and ensure that they go exclusively to small wallets.

"Or will there be an in-game Shop / market where we can invest some Steem into the Game?"

I think I can reveal that now: Yes.

·
·
·
·

Nice, I like it more than the "auction-model" where investors compete over planets and ressources and don't have a clue how to value them...for me that makes the excitement even bigger about your game.

I like your story line

A large part of humanity has been destroyed by a global nuclear war between China, Russia, North Korea and the USA.

Only superpowers only hardcore! :-)

·

We will build a huge RPG storyline. You will love it.

I can't wait to start with my own colony ! ! !

·

We're delighted! Thank you @oendertuerk

Looking forward to seeing more of the game - and to playing it!

·

Hope you're as excited as we are (;

The Earth is just a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena.

Be ready for the NextColony.

We welcome NextColony with both hands!

·

Nice. You will need both hands. Thanks!

"This game will change your life, rescue Steem and make this environment the most imaginative place in the entire universe." ~ Uh, this is kinda ballsy to write but damn I am cheering for NextColony. Keep up the good work guys!

You have to! Thanks a lot @goodguymate (:

nice progress! But I still miss a location based augmented reality MMO game on a blockchain ;)

·

Give us a couple of days. For the first we have to change the World (;

Tick tock tick tock..... 36 hours!! It can't come fast enough. I'm hoping for some big things from @nextcolony and I want to be one of the fist to play.

·

Yes. You should definitely be a part oft this Universe and see the world from the stars' point of view.

Can't wait :D

·

Good to know! :D

I for one really enjoy the games that (so far) have came out using the Steem Blockchain. They have lots of people that complain because all they want is a ROI and they don't play these things like a game! Sounds like yall have a stellar dev team and can't wait to see the game! @nextcolony Good luck guys!

·

Thank you very much for your leap of faith @mister-meeseeks!
For sure - a stellar dev team sounds great.

Be ready for orbit breakthrough.

This is the first time I've seen this and I'm glad I did with just over 1 day to go.

Looking forward to seeing what you have come up with. Let's hope it is the game that gets the steem blockchain noticed.

Good luck

·

We've already got the attention of the Steem Blockchain (;
...and we're shortly before the take-off. Don't miss it.

@nextcolony I AM WAITING FOR LIFT OFF!

·

Nice! :)

Haut rein Jungs :-)

·

Logo! Wir lassen es krachen.

wird informativ an meine wand gehängt......

·

So ist's richtig. Von NextColony träumen nicht vergessen.

Will the planets be tradeable?

·

Definitely.

Looking forward to the adventure ☢🚀

Yes! :)

Upvote&Resteem selbsterverständlich! Ich freu mich auch schon drauf :)

·

Vielen Dank, Flamo! Wir sind auch schon gespannt wie 12 Flitzebögen. :)

Sounds very interresting.

·

You can be 100% sure that it is very interesting and it is going to be very exciting.

·
·

oh really? do we have to have faith or there is actually proof of that?

·
·
·

You have to have faith. :)

Sehr gut, das mit @holger80.

·

Definitiv!

Danke, Möwe! :)

Wont be participating in the auction but im most definetly interested in any , lets call it, "financial instrument" you might provide us with. :)
Will be interesting to see how you monetize the game. _Hopefully we see some external, offchain investment as well. (or plans of.)

·

Legendary Planets are definitely your means of choice. You should be concerned with the Legendary Planets.

Hello! I am very interested in participating in the auction, but there are a few things holding me back. This is a 'for your information' from a potential investor. Before giving high amounts (for me greater than 50 steem), I usually need to know:

  1. How similar will the gameplay be to ogame?
  2. Will there be any 'payouts' or other ways to earn steem/upvotes/anything in game?
  3. Is there any way to 'invest' in this game or otherwise participate in future earnings?

Cheers! We are looking forward to the game :)

·

Thanks for your questions. :)

  1. OGame is definitely an inspiration for us.
  2. First and foremost, we're building a cool game here. A part of the income will always flow back into the Steem ecosystem, coupled to a clean PoW. We are Steem. Legendary Planets get a highlighted position.
  3. Hopefully I have answered this with the answer to your second question.

Laik the game concept...

·

We like, that you like it (:

Goood post and good work!!!

You can have some stardust (;

·

Sure! :)

I think having Holger as part of your team is a very smart move, as he's a great programmer and obviously invested in the platform. However, I must say that I don't really get what this game is about.

Where can I read about how this game works? From checking out this post, and your previous post, it seems like you guys have a basic story with some background information, but don't provide any information about the actual gameplay. On your website (in the FAQ) it says the game will launch after the auctions end, so I guess you guys are pretty far along already, which should also mean you are able to provide this information.

·

That's correct! We will publish more informations soon. Please be patient.

Congratulations @nextcolony!
Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following categories:

·

Cool, thanks. :)

One whale/witness just bid (very high) on all three planets. Not good for the acceptance of the game in the community hence not for the steem future.

·

For me the strategy worked so far :) it seems like I will get at least one of the three

·

For NextColony, it's the best thing that can happen.

Where are you? (;

·

My account @powernap stops bidding now.

congratulation on the successful auction ! show future developers on steem the different possibilities of fund raising.
