God games allow players to take on the role of an all-powerful god. Their sim worshippers are usually simple or tribal in nature.
As players progress through building and adventuring, the game unlocks additional features and gameplay at each stage, enhancing the complexity and entertainment value.
💡 Overall, the game centers around three major feature elements:
Players will be in charge of Planets with unique biomes. Through powerful elemental miracles - nourishing rain storms, gentle breezes, raising mountains, and spontaneous fire - the player can grow a world to fit their divine plan.

Figure 2: Example of a Player Avatar
💡 Each Avatar will fit in one of the three classes below. The Avatar is a commander who provides useful buffs and powerful attacks on the battlefield. The appearance of the Avatar will depend on both the combat class and the elemental composition of the Planet.
|The Fury||Melee vessels of destruction, charges the frontlines to send Doods and Boods into the sky with one fell swing. The mere sight of a Furry wreaking havoc and devastation is enough to send doods into the “feign death” status||Tanker|
|The Wisdom||Ranged vessels that can manipulate raw mana to obliterate boods and heathens from afar. Arcan constructs spawned from mana singularities in the Dirac Seas. Doods are easily mesmerized by their coloful spells||Ranged high damage dealer|
|The Fate||An aura augmentation vessels capable of elevating the inner strength of heroic. Apostles and doods alike. A commanding presence on the battlefield, doods avoid their usual mid-battle snack-breaks out of respect.||Supporter|

Players control their Avatar in battle along with their Apostle Squads, which are effectively Doods that have grown into hero status.

💡 Although the card-game genre is relatively common in the current blockchain gaming community, it is not an exaggeration to say that Apeiron has elevated the card-game system to a new level with solid graphics and eye-catching effects that resemble those in high-budget titles in the traditional gaming market.
Planets are where the main gameplay loop happens and are necessary to play Apeiron. Players have several ways to acquire their first Planet NFT:
💡 Just like a pet in Axie Infinity or cyblocs in Cyball, planets here in Apeiron have a unique set of randomly generated traits that are inherited and mixed in later generations.
|Planet’s Traits||Rarity||Planet Effect||Avatar Effect|
|Fertile Fields||Common||Follower production+||Recovery+|
|Starwater Pools||Rare||Water Element+||Water Resistance+|
|Greek Ethos||Rare||Greek Apostles Chance+||-|
|Olympus Mons||Epic||Earth Miracle+||Towering Shield (Skill)|
|Meteor Crater (Planet)||Cosmetic||Giant Crater||-|
|Flamewalker (Avatar)||Cosmetic||-||Fiery Trail|

Stars are similar to “Lands” in other NFT games and have attributes that will bestow bonuses to the planets orbiting them.

Play-and-earn gameplay loop: Planet development -> Armageddon -> Upgrade your Spirit Core -> Expand to other planets -> Planet development
💡 As the player continues to level up their Spirit Core, they will find they need more and more Soul Gems, requiring more and larger resets: in other words, a need to expand to other planets. In order to get more planets, they will have to become active on the Apeiron marketplace, thus reinforcing the play-and-earn economy.

Figure 10: Player type may have in Apeiron
You may use the following information to better understand the figure above:
On the top will be the Star Owners, the Mass Planet Breeders, and the market aficionados, these will be the players who have heavily invested in the game from the start and have become leaders of their own Alliances.
Below them are the specialized players:
- The Pro Players will be PvP experts who have fully-fleshed out team for battle in the arena and who focus on making Apeiros, the governance token.
- Then there are the PvE experts who farm dungeons and develop planets to get the best high-end Relics. Speedrunners will focus on maximizing short and speedy cycles to generate more of our p2e currency, Anima.
- And finally, Socializers will chill out and chat with all the others, tying the community together as they proceed slowly at their own pace through the game.
Please keep in mind that this is only a model. Indeed, the economy will be considerably more volatile and dynamic. It's not only about the sorts of players this model can account for; it's also about how each player role naturally shifts between the types as they develop their own strategy for joining the game. But the most important thing, and the objective of both the team and the players, is to build a healthy and sustainable economy.
💡 With a modern spin on god-genre gameplay, carefully designed economic model, and unique third token that caters to guilds members and multiplayer, Apeiron could become the next trendsetting following the success of Axie. The multi-faceted game offers entertainment value both for crypto and non-crypto players alike.

Based out of Hong Kong and founded in September 2020, Foonie Magus is a sister studio to Aither Entertainment, which has been around since June 2016. They share the same founders.
Aither is focused on strategy games, led by the Acid Rain series, whereas Foonie Magus appears to be a blockchain-focused arm that counts Apeiron as its first title. The developer’s website talks of dedication to the Metaverse and a belief that P2E games will change the world.
The good news is that Aither is a prominent developer team with experience making and deploying games, albeit in the mobile space. CTO Gem Ng claims to have launched “over 100 titles at least.”
