Phantom Galaxies is a multichain (currently built on Polygon), blockchain-based, science fiction, shared-world online, third-person, 3D action RPG featuring Gundam-ish style graphics and fast-paced combat. A fully fleshed-out PC/console game with blockchain technology and NFTs to enable true player-driven governance and asset ownership.
Phantom Galaxies is an open-world online space sim in which players take on a pivotal role in a Starfighter Mecha Robot. Players can switch between classic mecha robot mode and a starship mode.
|Mecha Robot Mode||Starship Mode|
|Offers the most effective ranged combat (and melee combat on some Frames), and allows ground-based combat and exploration.||Best for space combat, evasive maneuvers, and space travel.|

💡 Players will fight on the front lines as well as explore deep space to find valuable resources and uncover the powerful weapons of the Sha’Kari.
Players can select a Starfighter from four different starting classes as below: (Details are yet to be announced). From there, they will be able to upgrade their mechs, unlocking specialisations to experiment with and fine-tune the perfect Starfighter setup for each combat scenario.

Player activities in Phantom Galaxies include Missions, Quests, Operations (Daily & Weekly activities), and Raids.
💡 The ultimate goal of these game activities is to level up your Avatar NFT and Starfighter NFT to their maximum capacity, allowing them to gain emissions, resources, and in-game items through random board drops and rewards.
After a period of training and accumulating strength, Organizations can proceed to Frontier Space to occupy and receive perks such as rare items, more token-staking rewards, and higher rates of token emission.
FRONTIER SPACE (Battlefield) - REBEL SECTORS
Far away from the safety of the central systems, at the farthest reaches of the universe of Phantom Galaxies, is Frontier Space - where the highest PvP and PvE rewards are located.
Rebel Sectors are areas in Frontier Space that are essentially conquerable reward pools. Securing a Rebel Sector will be a highly competitive endeavour in which Corporations, Guilds, and other organized groups will have a powerful advantage over individual players or smaller groups. Once controlled, players can stake the governance token onto a base they control - the more tokens staked rewards a higher rate of token emission.
💡 Phantom Galaxies is truly believed to be a AAA-quality blockchain game that is part of a new generation aiming to deliver the production and polish qualities of traditional high-budget games with the blockchain advantages like digital item property rights, security, and decentralization.
The new generation of blockchain games is raising the bar and introducing more complex games for GameFi— soon the space will not just consist of simple pet games, card games, etc, but also games with carefully crafted and elaborate gameplay, exciting experiences, high-caliber graphics, and thrilling entertainment for players.

Mechanized Starfighters are the core items that the player utilises for exploration and combat in Phantom Galaxies. Other NFTs, such as Component NFTs (consumable), Equipment NFTs and Avatar NFTs, are available to help your starfighter reach its full potential.
Figure 4: Core NFT Loop
To start playing Phantom Galaxies, players can choose one of the 3 following options to have their first NFT:
💡 STARFIGHTER DESTRUCTION
Figure 5: Phantom Galaxies Avatar NFT
Each Avatar will establish a player's character's visual appearance as well as some of its starting attributes. Players can level up their avatars and use skill points to increase their fighting efficiency as they journey through the game.
💡 Avatars will be minted and released in batches. Each batch will have a set of core “parent” Avatar NFTs where the traits of the parents will be used to generate each Avatar in the batch.
Phantom Galaxies will offer a variety of in-game items that exist as NFTs, including weapons, armor, shaders, and consumables. Items can be bought from shops or found as loot throughout the universe of Phantom Galaxies. The harder the challenge, the more valuable the NFT items will be.
💡 The rarest and most powerful items are only found by completing multi-stage end-game content and will consist of unique and powerful advantages that will define players’ play style and shape their every action.
Figure 6: Phantom Galaxies Planet NFT
Planets are NFTs that are Phantom Galaxies’ player-ownable real estate. A player or an organization, a Guild can purchase and own Planets, which offer important utility: not only acting as an in-game base of operations, but also producing (or “emitting”) the native in-game currency of Phantom Galaxies (PGToken).
While there is a set minimum of PGToken emission which players are guaranteed to receive from their Planet, there is also a multiplier effect which can be attained through gameplay activities, raising the rate of emission up to a set maximum which include:

The project just closed its Public Planet Sale on May 27. All small, medium, and large planets have been SOLD OUT — the remaining small and large asteroids will be returned to the pool and will be available for purchase with the beta game's release.
💡 For those actually playing the game, these will not be difficult or inconvenient diversions, but natural parts of the core game experience. Users can earn (the minimum) by simply holding the planets, but players are rewarded MORE than passive investors. It’s “Play-and-Earn” not “Play-to-Earn”.
Phantom Galaxies will not have a pre-sale like Seed or Private Round for its native tokens. Planet Sales will be held instead.

💡 What sets Phantom Galaxies apart is that the project is being developed by Animoca Brands, one of the leading investment funds in web3 gaming. Therefore, with solid financial resources and a significant network in the blockchain space, a lack of funding or runway is unlikely to be an issue, even though there will be fewer tokens for everyone, which results in less selling pressure. A 10% allocation is necessary to create initial liquidity for projects and listings. The rest can only be earned by playing the game, even for VCs.
The Community Treasury will automatically take a percentage of revenue streams such as the Fusion process, Durability repairs, Insurance, and Rent payments. Part of this reserve will be used to help fund the Rebel Sectors reward pools and also flow back to the holders of governance tokens.
Phantom Galaxies just closed the Private Planet Sale, 7734 Planets & Asteroids were sold for a total of $19.3M, led by Aniomoca Brands with the support including Sequoia China, Liberty City Ventures, GameFi Ventures, Everest Ventures Group, Terrace Tower Group, MDDN Co (Joel and Benji Madden), Adrian Cheng, SMO Capital, Polygon Ventures, Dapper Labs, NFT Live + Cagyjan, Kingsway, 3Commas Capital, Double Peak, Mind Fund, Defi Cap, and others. A number of gaming guilds also participated, including Avocado DAO, YGG, and YGG SEA.
