Pumpopoly Overview



    Pumpopoly is a virtual real estate simulator reminiscent of classic board games. Playable on all devices, the game features pixel art on an animated HTML5 canvas. 

    Gameplay is simple. Players collect a salary from the treasury on every move. Players who park at player owned land pay rent to the landlord. Parking is free at all city owned properties. Deeper incremental clicker game mechanics exist underneath this simplicity.

    Unlike the classic board game, Pumpopoly does not contain a fixed amount of properties. New land is added as players buy or improve property. This mechanic guarantees that the average cost of rent is always less than the salary paid. New land is added at an increased price along a parabolic curve.

    Initially, all land in Pumpopoly is city owned and available for player purchase. Once purchased, players can improve their vacant lots by building one of four structures: hovels, small townhouses, large townhouses or executive towers. Each improvement offers an exponential increase in rental income. 

    There are 256 pixel art variations for each property type. Including vacant lots, this amounts to 1280 different pixel art variations.

    Players can level up by improving their in-game credit score. For each land owned players +10 points are added to their credit score. +30 points are added when a player invites a friend. The in-game credit score is similar to an experience point system in other games. Players must have a qualifying credit score to build improvements upon their lands. Higher in-game credit scores also allow players to claim a salary more frequently.

    Pumpopoly features a robust cryptocurrency integration, although payment is not required to play the game. Players who wish to preview or play for free can use the testnet version.

    There are two types of cryptocurrency tokens available within Pumpopoly: non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and PUMPOPOLY fungible tokens. Fungible tokens are issued from the game's smart contract. All purchases within the game are denominated in PUMPOPOLY fungible tokens.

    Players may buy or sell properties within the in-game market. They may also choose to export their property to a non-fungible token (NFT). Exporting properties to NFTs allows players to sell on third party marketplaces or transfer them to friends. Rent collected by property exported to NFT is held by the in-game property management company. The accumulated rent is paid to the user who imports the property back into the game.

    The city treasury holds PUMPOPOLY fungible tokens for player salaries. Like a cryptocurrency faucet, the Pumpopolis treasury pays a portion of the total balance to players on every move. Purchases of city land add tokens back into the city's treasury. 

    An equal amount of tokens is added to the treasury whenever players purchase tokens from the game. Tokens sold by the game contract increase along a parabolic curve in relation to the total number of tokens issued. Players may also trade their tokens on third-party marketplaces. In this way a natural market equilibrium is established.
