We’re thrilled to share the latest developments from the Galactic Hubs grant program as Season 2 heats up. Our mission at gHubs is to support creators and builders, drive innovation and expand the Alien Worlds metaverse, and we have some exciting projects to update you on.
So far this season, Galactic Hubs has approved six game applications; all are under development with plans to be released within the calendar year. By doing so, we aim to create a more diverse and exciting ecosystem of games that can appeal to a broader range of players. These games give Alien Worlds Explorers new ways to compete, using their NFTs and Trilium across the metaverse.
Another focus of this season is to encourage community-generated content that can enrich our lore and foster discussions among members of the metaverse. Our community’s creativity and imagination will animate and expand the backstory of Alien Worlds. We’re also committed to promoting long-format discussions amongst community members, providing a place for open conversation and fresh perspectives.
Finally, a thriving metaverse requires a strong foundation of tools and infrastructure, which is why we continue to support tooling development.
Season Two — Projects now in development

Restack.AI is set to enhance the Battledome game, the Alien Worlds metaverse card battler, by focusing on community integration and decentralization.

This initiative includes Syndicate-administered tournaments and prize distribution, community-driven game development, and implementing a crowdfunding module. The goal is to hand over Battledome operations to the Alien Worlds community sustainably, with the community’s future determined by the game. Learn more

Galactic Standoff — MVP
Tentree Studios, creators of Zombie Outbreak Survival, is developing a mass multiplayer PVP strategy game within the Alien Worlds metaverse, allowing players to pledge allegiance to decentralized Starbases, upgrade and defend their bases, and earn power-ups to become the strongest Starbase.

A Planetary Syndicate from Alien Worlds governs each star base. When a user is voted in as a Planetary Councilor, they also gain power within their chosen star base. The MVP will enable player interactions with map assets, including Council admin privileges, allow NFT deposits in the base’s inventory for PVP gameplay, and provide essential building management.

The ultimate goal is to boost their stats to fight in dungeons on each planet. Trilium Quest is set in the Alien Worlds meta lore and offers a rich storyline for an exciting and immersive gaming experience.
