Latest and Greatest | Common Ground World

It feels like just yesterday that Common Ground World was born, a web3 ownership enabled prototype called Town Star, created by some of the same genius minds that brought the world the Farmville franchise. Gala Games grew from an innovative startup to a global leader in web3 entertainment while this game kept growing all the while.

For the first issue of a new quarterly update series about each of our awesome games, Common Ground World was the perfect choice. Now let’s dig into some of the latest and greatest excitement for everyone’s favorite farming sim from Gala Games!

Coming Soon for Common Ground World Nodes

In a massive step toward player empowerment and decentralization, Common Ground World Node licenses will soon be tokenized and minted on GalaChain, allowing owners to transfer and trade them as they please. Stay tuned for more updates on CGW Nodes!

Guilds are coming soon to CGW Nodes, currently on track for release before the end of Q1.

Later This Year

Later this year, Daily Challenges are making a triumphant return with a new and improved reward system. Look for more updates about that in the near future!

Thanks to the power and versatility of Gala’s L1 blockchain, GalaChain, Upgradeable NFTs are coming soon to Common Ground World, adding a new layer of strategic planning for collectors!

If those on the horizon updates weren’t enough, we’ll sweeten the anticipation by mentioning Consumable Boosts, joining the game later this year!

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.

Previous: 0 Legacy Keys
Now: 1 Legacy Key

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!
