, It’s not often that you see a new idea in this world of rewrites, revamps, and reiterations, which is why Legacy is totally unique in the gaming space. Running your Legacy gameplay with long term success is equivalent to building a thriving business. Players are called to manage the creation, production and sale of unique goods from the design board all the way to shipment and sale.

Monetizing player creativity through adapting to market conditions, then setting players against one another in a friendly (but heated) competition is what makes Legacy stand alone in the innovative world of web3 gaming.

Let’s take a look at Legacy for this edition of Gala’s Latest and Greatest in gaming.

Manage Your Business

Every Legacy player manages a business of their own. You start small on someone else’s dime, but eventually build up and expand to managing NPC workforces over your production lines. Once you’ve unlocked worker satisfaction ratings, be sure to give them things that enhance their ability to thrive in the workplace!

Legacy Keys

Just like in the business world, you’ll need someone else’s support to start building your Legacy, and this is where Legacy Keys come into play. When you start playing, you’ll select from an available Legacy Key, representing an investor prepared to back your business (for a share of your Gems, of course 🤑)

Along with the Ice Cream update from late January, the number of Legacy Keys included with each Guild has increased 5X – So not only is it a great time to manage a Guild, but more players than ever have a chance to get in the game and start building!

Legacy Guilds

Our most serious Legacy players own and manage Guilds of their own through ownership of a Legacy Deed NFT. Instead of land ownership (like many metaverse style gaming NFTs), Legacy Deeds entitle ownership of a Guild–a business that varies in size depending on the rarity of the Legacy Deed. For example, a Rare “Firm Deed” starts with 15 Legacy Keys, making for a substantial Guild and a nice passive Gem income for successful managers–But an Ancient “Heart of London Deed” starts off with a massive 500 Legacy Keys!

Legacy Deeds were sold out in the primary sale long ago, but prospective Guild managers can still browse them on the secondary market today!

Looking Ahead

Exciting things are in store as you continue building your Legacy throughout 2024!

Soon, the ability will be added for Legacy Guild owners to permanently upgrade their Deeds in-game, opening the door to even more hungry entrepreneurs in their Guilds.

Look for releases of new areas on the map, new ways to engage with your workforces, and exciting new product lines to put your entrepreneurial spirit to the test!

If you haven’t started playing Legacy yet, what are you waiting for? It’s free, so start building your empire!

Legacy: Ice Cream, Expansions and Upgrades

Legacy: Ice Cream, Expansions and Upgrades

We’re already almost a month into a new year, and since time is money, the team has already dropped another substantial update for Legacy players to enjoy! This update has a little something for everyone, from new Guild Management features to expanded messaging abilities–even a new frozen treat for product design! Let’s dig right in, because before you know it the spring thaw will be here!

Scream for Ice Cream

The newest product line is sure to be a mouth watering hit throughout the entire Gala Games ecosystem–That’s right, we’re throwing in ice cream as a brand new product line! As all you IRL ice cream connoisseurs know, icy treats can get pretty extravagant, especially on the competitive and gourmet level. With Legacy ice cream, like all available product lines, the name of the game is creating something that really stands out in the competitions.

Start producing your own ice cream creations now to take home Gems in the Design Competitions. But we must warn you–Producing ice cream on the design table may unleash the craving, so be sure to keep your real ice cream further than arm’s length while you play!

Expansions and Pay Raises

Your town’s workers will absolutely love this first update–They’ve all gotten a pay raise, so pat yourself on the back. We’re certain that their increased motivation will make the additional expense well worth it for your growing business.

New Paints, Patterns and Stickers have been added to the Design Table’s right side drawers, enhancing your ability to customize your products! Don’t forget–You can also update your avatar with the latest colors and patterns to give yourself that business chic edge.

Guild Management Updates

The Guild Management menu has received a substantial upgrade, making it easier than ever to set your Guild rules, manage membership and send messages to your Guildmates!

More Deed Keys

Great news for Guild leaders! Every single one of you now has a lot more Legacy Keys up for grabs, so get ready to accept eager new upstarts to share your success.

To play Legacy, you must join a Guild, because you just can’t make it alone in the business world. Every Guild leader gets a number of Legacy Keys, based on the rarity of their Land Deed. With this update, every Guild leader now starts with 5 times as many Legacy Keys!

Keep in mind that the Legacy Key numbers listed below only refer to starting Keys, and owners will later have the ability to purchase more Legacy Keys for their Guilds.

Startup Deed (Common) 

Previous: 0 Legacy Keys
Now: 1 Legacy Key

Enterprise Deed (Uncommon) 

Previous: 1 Legacy Key
Now: 5 Legacy Keys

Firm Deed (Rare) 

Previous: 3 Legacy Keys
Now: 15 Legacy Keys

Conglomerate Deed (Legendary)

Now: 125 Legacy Keys

Heart of London (Ancient)

Now: 500 Legacy Keys 


Guild leaders–Get ready for an influx of new players by making sure your Guild rules are set where you want them and your reward split is in the sweet spot! Making a good strategic decision about the Guild reward split could make the difference between packing your Guild with go-getters or good-for-nothings, so choose wisely!

That’s a wrap for this update; now get out there and build your Legacy before someone else does!

New Year, New Legacy!

New Year, New Legacy!


One month into launch, we’re looking towards the future! Big updates on the horizon for all our enterprising players.

Hello, Legacy fans!

Despite some of our annoying bugs taking their toll and making a real nuisance of themselves, largely we are happy with how the release has gone. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all. Our community has been very responsive and forthcoming with questions, concerns and suggestions and we have taken it all on board, and put a lot of effort into alleviating some of Legacy’s growing pains while looking forward to how we might make Legacy into the trailblazing Web3 blockchain gaming definer that we want it to be.

Upcoming Features

On Wednesday 29th November, we rolled out our first planned feature update. We would have loved to do this sooner but we have had to quickly adjust into a flexible hotfix mode and tried to stay light on our feet while we navigated some of the more critical launch bugs. We are thrilled (and surprised) that some of you managed to reach level 23 in such quick time! We are blown away by your ingenuity and dedication to the game, astounded that you reached the soft cap that we had put on for launch so soon. The time has come for new content… Therefore, we are adding two new districts to the map and unlocking an entirely new product line: Teddy Bears! We are also implementing a feature that many of you have asked for — the ability to view winning designs in any given Design Competition.

There has been a lot of work on one of the major concerns that the community have raised around Player Levels and imbalance. At its heart, Legacy is a competitive game. We initially came up with a system that was designed for lots of users that would effectively filter them into balanced and equal leagues, in doing so creating a set of Legacy leagues where the elite town managers would battle against each other in high stakes competitions for high stakes prizes, while players with less experience would compete in lower leagues. Unfortunately, due to some bugs knocking the participation numbers in events and the blockage caused by Vic’s Big Challenge, our demotion system led to players being mismatched in their events. We apologise for this, it is a problem that we wish we did not have as any unfairness in competitions was something we always wanted to remove from Legacy. The best laid plans of mice, men and game designers…

In response, we are initialising a revised matchmaking system with handicaps.

The handicap system assigns all players in an event a handicap score of 0. If an advanced player drops down one league, they are given a handicap relative to their original league, and the event league they have been moved to. This increases as the disparity between player levels increases, and is tuned to the lowest handicap score in the lobby. This handicap takes various forms depending on the event you are participating in, but generally it means that players with far more advanced towns will have to overcome an initial deficit, whilst newer players do not feel at a severe disadvantage when matched with an advanced player.

This will require some tweaking as we go, but it is the start of a journey that we will venture on together. Over time, as our player base grows, there will be fewer instances of imbalanced matchmaking, however in the short term we feel this is the best way to level the playing field in these cases.

We have taken your feedback onboard and designed it with the long term future of Legacy in mind. This handicap system will not have an immediate effect on users as it will still require a larger pool of players to fill out the gaps, however, once we roll out our upcoming User Acquisition campaign, these wrinkles ought to iron themselves out. Which nicely leads us into the next topic.

What’s to come in Legacy

Over the Christmas Holiday period, we are going to be rolling out a campaign to engage our existing users, bring in the current Deed Holders who have not yet activated their guilds, and attract new players into the existing Guilds.

In the New Year, we have some grander User Acquisition plans, with increased marketing spending to attract brand new users to join our community. We want Legacy to flourish, so we are laying the foundations for this influx of users by increasing the maximum keys per deed by up to 5 times their original amount, at no additional cost to the Deed Holder. This means more potential players in your Guilds, and more players in Events.

We will also be working on revamping the Events schedule, adding new types of Events, and creating an opt-in lobby based model that will give players the opportunity to see exactly what league the event is for and allow them to decide whether they wish to enter or not. Crucially, this choice is made before the Gems are deducted. We are still ironing out the details alongside other update plans, and we will keep you informed as this motion progresses. The update can be expected to arrive some time in Q1 2024.

Finally, we are looking at community sourced suggestions and prioritising them based on what we think is feasible in line with our current plan, and also reasonable in the context of the game. There is a high level of variance between player levels, and what is good for the beginner is usually damaging to the more advanced player, and vice versa.

Together with Gala, we are putting funds into marketing and user acquisition to expand the horizons of Legacy beyond this amazing community and bring in new faces to compete with.

The long term future of Legacy is at the forefront of our minds, and we believe that these changes are the beginning of a journey toward a healthier, fairer and more enjoyable experience for everyone. These feature updates, combined with a concerted marketing campaign and consistent content drops, will lead to a much improved Legacy experience. We appreciate your patience and feedback through this launch period. Thank you for your support, suggestions and constructive critiques — together we will cement our Legacy!

Thank you, 
The 22Cans Team

Dive into a robust economy of rewards and ownership created by 22cans and powered by GalaChain!

Jump into the world of Legacy, 22cans revolutionary business simulation game, where strategy, competition, and reward mechanics seamlessly converge.

Starting Your Journey: $GALA and other Important Concepts

At the heart of Legacy lies $GALA, which also serves as the currency and gas token of the Gala ecosystem. This token facilitates the acquisition of land, buildings, Gems and more, unlocking a trove of potential opportunities.

Please note that existing Land Deeds and some Buildings were originally minted on Ethereum, so they must be bridged over to GalaChain for gameplay. This can be done on the Gala Games platform through your account inventory.

  • Land Deeds: If you’re the owner of a Legacy Land Deed, you’re also the leader of a Legacy guild. You’ll empower other players using your Legacy Keys to share in a portion of their gameplay rewards.
  • Buildings (Coming Soon): Erect structures to enhance your town’s allure, boost worker efficiency, hasten research initiatives, and much more. Many of these buildings may be purchased and owned as items minted on GalaChain, while others are available in-game only.
  • Gems: This in-game currency is used for much, such as to enter various events within Legacy. More details about the Gem economy is available below. Gems are available for purchase now in the Gala Games store.

Key Player vs. Owner

Legacy embraces every player — whether you lead a Guild by owning land or not.

Key Players

Experience the full spectrum of Legacy — from land development to event participation. These “partner” players must choose an available Legacy Key when they begin playing, linking themselves to a Deed owner and joining their Guild. Membership in a Guild is an agreement to share a portion of rewards with the Deed owning benefactor.

Deed Ownership Advantages

Depending on the rarity of their Deed, each owner is issued a certain number of Legacy Keys. Legacy Keys allow anyone to play under the Deed owner’s umbrella as part of their team (Guild). This means a portion of rewards earned in Events will always be shared with the owner of the Deed who made those rewards possible.

Additionally, depending on the rarity of a given Land Deed, a Legacy Ticket multiplier will be factored into the Legacy Ticket haul for each event placement achieved by said Land Deed or associated Key Holder(s). These multipliers will range from 1x to 3x of the base Ticket rewards based on rarity.

Gem Dynamics

In Legacy, Gems act as in-game currency and a strategic tool. Gems are not a GalaChain-minted token, but instead exist exclusively in the game and are non-transferable.

  • Gem Production: All players (Deed owners and Key Players) will unlock the Gem Mine building through gameplay, offering free Gems every day that can be used to enter various competitive events or continue land development. An active Gem Mine gives every player the means to enter a competition daily without having to pay anything.
  • Gem Deployment: Gems find utility across the board — from the bustling Trading House and cutting-edge Research Lab, to hastening in-game processes for a competitive edge. All events that offer Legacy Ticket rewards require Gems to enter. Efficient Gem management and utilization are paramount for players seeking long-term success.

Legacy’s Competitive Edge: Events

Events epitomize the spirit of competition in Legacy. There are two main types of Events in Legacy: Design Competitions and Profit/Sales Competitions. All events begin on hourly rotation around the clock, and all Events cost Gems to enter, with more Gems required for higher Leagues.

Because all Competitive Events require players to effectively manage their towns in different ways, the Event structure creates a well-balanced world of strategic challenges to Legacy players.

Events as Faucets and Sinks

Events serve as both sinks and faucets for Legacy’s dynamic economy, requiring Gems for players to enter (sink) and distributing token rewards based on Legacy Tickets (faucet).

Gems are either purchased for $GALA or earned (max 100 per day) through the in-game Gem Mine. A portion of the spent $GALA in each 24 hour period constitutes the reward pool, completing the cycle of $GALA in, $GALA out.

Event League Breakdown

Legacy boasts a multi-tiered structure for its events, from the Beginner League to the high-stakes Super League for the seasoned pros. Each League has its own distinct entry costs and rewards. Players must earn access (through gameplay) to higher Leagues, but all players always have access to Beginner League Events.

Thanks to the in-game Gem Mine (which can be unlocked through gameplay by any player), everyone can generate enough Gems each day (100) to enter a single Beginner Competition without spending anything in the store.

The number of places that reward Legacy Tickets varies depending on the number of entrants in each competition. Additionally, when finishers tie for a winning place, more than 5 winners can sometimes receive rewards.

30 entrants: Top 5 receive Legacy Tickets
24–29 entrants: Top 4 receive Legacy Tickets
18–23 entrants: Top 3 receive Legacy Tickets
12–17 entrants: Top 2 receive Legacy Tickets
05–11 entrants: Top 1 receive Legacy Tickets

Additional Note about Leagues: Once a player has leveled up to a higher League, they will no longer have the ability to select a League below their level. However, if there are not enough entrants in the higher League event, then they will automatically be added to the League below and the Gem difference for the entry fee refunded.

  • Base Legacy Ticket Earning Pool (Max): 2,350 Legacy Tickets

  • 3rd Place Legacy Ticket Rewards (Max): 4700 Legacy Tickets
  • 4th Place Legacy Ticket Rewards (Max): 2350 Legacy Tickets
  • 5th Place Legacy Ticket Rewards (Max): 1175 Legacy Tickets

Legacy Tickets

Legacy Tickets are more than mere in-game tokens — they’re your precious gameplay rewards! While players can earn Legacy Tickets by placing in Competitive Events throughout the day, Legacy Tickets will be automatically converted into $GALA only once each day.

The amount of $GALA awarded per Legacy Ticket is determined by the total available reward pool, which will initially consist of 15% (subject to change) of the $GALA spent on in-game Gems. In the future, this reward pool will also be filled by a percentage of $GALA spent on other items such as buildings.

Conclusion

Legacy beckons you to a world where business strategy, keen competition, and tangible rewards intertwine. Whether you’re a casual gamer or a strategic business maestro, Legacy promises an experience that’s both enthralling and rewarding.

In Legacy, your design skills and business strategies are keys to success. Great design wins, superstar preparation prevails. Anyone who paid theGems required for entry can win any Event at any time, just so long as they put their artistic flair into every design and out-strategize the competition.

Join us in this business adventure, build your legacy, and enjoy everything that comes with it — all on the robust Gala Games platform.

Legacy’s Competitive Edge: Events

Legacy’s Competitive Edge: Events


Legacy launches on October 26th, 2023. Read on to learn more about regular competitions and opportunities to win $GALA

Legacy, Gala Games’ innovative business simulation offering, is shaping up to be the next big thing in the gaming world. A key component that has players buzzing with excitement is the ‘Events’ aspect of the game, particularly the Design Competitions. If you’ve ever wanted to test your design acumen against a community of like-minded enthusiasts, Legacy’s Events could be your playground. Here’s an in-depth look into the various competitive Events and what they entail.

What are Legacy’s Events?

There are several different types of events in Legacy, all of which include opportunities for players (both Key holders and Deed owners) to win some rewards!

Events begin hourly, so no matter when you play, you’ll have a chance to accumulate Legacy Tickets, which ultimately translate into the amount of $GALA rewards you’ll receive if you have what it takes!

Guild leaders will also get a multiplier to their Legacy Ticket haul that corresponds to the rarity of their Guild (Land Deed). For exact launch figures and multiplier numbers, you’ll have to wait for the game’s litepaper, coming soon!

Take care of your workers and they’ll take care of you!

Profit/Sales Events

Two main Profit/Sales events are always running alongside the Design Competitions. If you’re not feeling creative in product design on a particular day, then hone in hardcore on the efficiency of your town.

Most Sales

In this event, the only thing that matters is the sheer quantity of products sold. Sell as many as you can to rank on the leaderboard and gather some Legacy Tickets!

Most Profit

In this mode, money is all that matters. The winners are determined by the total value of the products sold during the Competition.

Design Competitions

Design Competitions are more involved and more democratic than the straightforward profit/sales events described above.

At their core, Design Competitions are multiplayer events that allow players to flex their creative muscles, crafting product designs using the parts they’ve unlocked in the game.

Competitors in each Design Competition will duke it out for the most creative and unique designs, and the winners of each competition will win Legacy Tickets. Each day, those Legacy Tickets will be convertible into $GALA, which may be transferred out of the ecosystem or used to buy more Buildings, Gems, or other items in the store.

How Do They Work?

Design Competition Announcements: Special competition prompts are made in-game, offering insights into the theme or requirements for the current contest. Once the in-game Gem Mine has been unlocked, everyone will have the ability to use the free Gems produced by their Gem Mine to pay the entry fee to the various competitions.

The Design Table: Armed with the competition’s specifications, players head to a dedicated space called the ‘Special Design Table’. This unique interface facilitates the crafting of their design submissions.

Feel like a winner?

Of course, a good collection of leveled buildings and an efficient workforce will go a long way to designing something incredible, as you will need the required resources to enter your designs. These can be bought or collected and stored in the Warehouse in preparation for each Design Competition.

The Voting System

Once the design phase concludes, the competition transitions into its next exciting phase — voting!

Community-Powered Rankings: Players have the power to shape the competition’s outcome. They review and vote on each other’s designs to determine which submissions truly stand out.

To ensure robust participation and unbiased rankings, Legacy introduces special rewards for players who participate in formulated voting rounds. This not only encourages players to be active voters but also guarantees a fair and thrilling competition. You will need to vote the requisite number of times per Design Competition in order for your own entry to be validated. This ensures all entries are seen and voted on.

The voting system has been built to ensure it is impossible for teams to influence the votes as you will never see your own design or the designs of those players who are in the same Competition league as yourself. Everyone votes on the designs of others in separate Competitions.

And The Winner Is…

After the votes are tallied, it’s time to announce the winners. Those who managed to captivate the community with their designs are handsomely rewarded with Legacy Tickets, which are easily redeemed daily for $GALA, the core token of the Gala Games ecosystem.

The top-performing designs are awarded the greatest numbers of Legacy Tickets, ensuring that the most popular and innovative designs always receive the recognition they deserve.

Always in the Loop

Keeping track of the competition’s various stages is a breeze. The Events tab within the game continually updates players on competition timelines, ensuring they know precisely when to design, vote, or simply sit back and await the results.

A League Up!

In the spirit of fairness for participants of all levels of dedication and ownership, all competitions are divided into four different Leagues. The higher the League, the greater the prizes, but be prepared to pay more Gems for a chance to win larger stacks of Legacy Tickets.

Please note that each player may only participate in one League at a time. Access to higher Leagues is essentially unlocked through gameplay and participation in competitions at lower Leagues. Every beginner starts in the Beginner League.

If there are not enough players for effective competition in a certain League, those players will be temporarily moved to a lower League.

Beginner

  • 100 Gems to enter
  • Legacy Tickets: ⭐

Apprentice

  • 250 Gems to enter
  • Legacy Tickets: ⭐⭐

Professional

  • 500 Gems to enter
  • Legacy Tickets: ⭐⭐⭐

Thriving and productive towns don’t just build themselves!

Calling Guild Owners

It’s time to bridge your Legacy Land Deeds from Ethereum to GalaChain so you’ll be ready for players to join when the game launches! To ensure that the best and brightest early adopters will join your Guild, SET IT UP EARLY.

Once you have bridged your Land Deed(s) to GalaChain, you’ll have the option to download the build and configure your Guild. This includes setting the percentage of rewards that will be shared with you from your Guildmates, as well as naming and describing your Guild.

Please note that if you have more than one Legacy Land Deed, you’ll have access to multiple tabs within the Deed Management page.

Please also note that you’ll have to pay ETH network fees (gas) to bridge your items from Ethereum to GalaChain, so be sure to have some ETH in your account wallet.

Setting up your Deed early is super simple! Go for it!

Compete for Creativity!

Legacy’s competitions are more than just a creative outlet — they represent the spirit of community, competition, and reward that the game embodies. Whether you’re a design novice looking to learn from the community or a seasoned pro aiming to showcase your skills, these competitions promise an experience that’s both challenging and rewarding.

Join the Legacy community today and let your designs tell a story that could echo through the ages!
