Alien Worlds is a free-to-play cards game with decentralized metaverse running on the Ethereum, WAX, and Binance Smart Chain blockchains. Its economy is powered by Trilium(TLM) token, which is both an advanced utility asset with extended DeFİ functionalities and an in-game currency. TLM incentivizes explorers to play games and must be staked by users to participate in governance. Planets within the metaverse are decentralized autonomous organizations that receive daily Trilium from the central metaverse smart contracts.
Alien Worlds' gameplay allows the players to explore a vast 2D universe, mine planets, buy or rent lands, take on missions and delve into the politics of the planets all while collecting cards (NFTs) and earning TLM along the way. Players can stake their hard-earned Trilium to a specific planet to strengthen that planet's power over others and also increase their own status in the governance of the planet. Each planet is competitive with others and they all have their own DAOs. In time, players will be looking forward to gaining more control over the planets and even changing the base rules of the game as their TLM treasury gets bigger. Also, mining on planets provides the players a steady income of TLM, however the tools the player mines with play an important role. The better items and item combinations the player has, the better the outcome is.
All the data and the smart contract is on blockchains so the game itself is transparent. Players can see which parts of the metaverse are attracting the most attention and offer gaming contracts or even set up mini-competitions to add more depth and fun to the gameplay.
Even just a simple "You will play a game where you can explore the space” would be enough for me. But earning income while doing that? COUNT. ME. IN.
Welcome to Gamepedia! Today we’ll be exploring the universe of Alien Worlds. Get your drinks and snacks, ladies and gentlemen. We are about to take off!
First of all, let’s get to know the universe we are about to dive into a little better: Alien Worlds is a free-to-play blockchain card game with more than one million players that lets you become a space wanderer and a space miner. At the beginning of the game, you will be equipped with a basic mining shovel and choose a planet to start mining Trilium (TLM), the resource that makes you earn real-life money out of it. To mine Trilium, you need mining tools. Better quality tools make you mine more Trilium. So, I advise you to take good care of them and look for opportunities to improve them. Think of them as your friends: if you care about them and help them to improve themselves, they will always be there for you.
Of course, there are some things for you to do beforehand to start playing: you need to connect your WAX Cloud Wallet into the game. You can link your social media accounts to create a new WAX wallet pretty easily.
After setting up your WAX wallet, and giving the required permissions to Alien Worlds, you’re ready to experience the game!
That’s what your inventory looks like.
While traveling and mining Trilium across the universe, you may be rewarded with NFT items from time to time. These items could be a brand new mining tool, a passionate minion, a cool-looking weapon, etc. you name it. But it is harder to get NFTs than Trillum. You will be getting TLM every time you mine, but getting an NFT item is up to your luck. Of course, you can increase your chances by using luck-oriented tools, and mining lands that have a higher potential for NFT items to be found. However, at the end of the day, luck plays a big role too.
These NFT items can be traded with other players on marketplaces. So, if luck is not on your side, you can always visit the marketplace to obtain whatever you want.
Planets play a huge role in your space odyssey. Every planet in the universe of Alien Worlds has two statistics that you need to know: mining pot and fill rate. The mining pot is the capacity of how much TLM can be mined from the planet. The fill rate is the replenishment rate of the mining pot.
You can choose any of these planets to start mining! (I am manipulating you to pick my favorite planet by selecting it on the image, don’t mind me.)
A high amount of mining pot capacity and a high fill rate is the best for you to mine Trilium more effectively. You can pick a popular planet from the beginning because there will be more staking on that planet, which means more TLM to mine for you. At the same time, that would mean more players are mining on that planet, and that decreases the mining pot capacity. In that scenario, it would be wise to pick a planet with a balanced mining pot-fill rate ratio.
A standard shovel is a beginner tool. I mined on a Sandy Desert on Eyeke planet with a standard shovel. In ten minutes, I have managed to mine 0.0438 Trilium.
That’s right, players can stake Trillum on planets. If players stake on a planet, it will increase its mining pot capacity. So, you can contribute to the game’s economy directly by staking on a planet and helping other players to mine it. Good for you, Space Miner!
This is where I hang out all the time.
Each and every planet in Alien Worlds is divided into tons of lands. And guess what? Your mining operations are happening on these lands. There are some key attributes of lands that you may want to know when you are mining such as the chance to find an NFT, the amount of Trilium that you can mine, the ease of use for machines, and the charge time multiplier for your tools’ recharging process.
There are twenty different types of lands in the universe:
POW (proof of work) makes your mining easier. Charge, however, extends the recharge time of your tools.
Also, the lands listed above have different rarities like common (gray), rare (blue), epic (purple), and legendary (yellow). Their rarity level increases its key stats drastically. As a side note, it will also increase the recharge time since they need more time to work on it.
I know it’s hard to believe, but there are other mining tools in the universe with better attributes and better rarities than a space shovel. Tools in general, have four statistics that you need to be aware of: mining power, NFT chance, charge time, and POW (proof of work). The best mining tools should have high mining power, NFT chance, and POW while they have a relatively low charge time.
Just like lands, mining tools also have different rarity levels such as abundant (light gray), common (gray), rare (blue), epic (purple), legendary (yellow), and mythical (red). Mythical mining tools are really hard to find because there are very few of them. However, if you find one, congratulations, you can sell it for A LOT of money on marketplaces!
Of course, you can choose to keep them for your mining operations. If that’s the case you’ll be mining lands more efficiently and profitably. For example, if you have an epic Localised Attractor, you’ll be able to mine more TLM and have an increased chance of finding NFTs compared to a rare Glavor Disc. However, your charge time also will increase since Localised Attractor requires more time to complete the mining.
I’d personally prefer Localised Attractor because of its NFT chance modifier.
The mining is the main gameplay aspect of the Alien Worlds. You better get used to it, because you will be mining a lot to earn TLM. Luckily, the mining process is not complicated. There are only two phases of mining: the mining, and waiting for your mining tools to recharge to be used again. When you are ready to mine, just simply click the “MINE” button, you can’t miss it. Afterwards, a timer will be displayed on the top of your screen and when the timer runs out, you can mine again.
The waiting time is totally up to your tools, and the land’s cooldown. The outcome of the mining process, the amount of TLM you mine also depends on your tools, land’s capabilities, your NFT chance, and POW. If you want to grasp the mechanics better, I advise you to check the formulas down below.
Oh, yes. It's a part of the shining system in the game. The shining system allows you to increase the stats and create better-looking NFTs. There are currently four levels of shine in Alien Worlds: stone (just gray), gold (well, it’s gold), stardust (specks all around it), and antimatter (negative color-kind-of-thing). Each NFT card starts at the stone level, you can make it shine better from that point.
Stone & Gold
Stardust & Antimatter
To shine your NFTs, you need Trilium. The amount of TLM that you need is up to the NFT’s rarity and its current shine level. For example, if you want to shine a card to gold, you need four stone cards of that card first. Combine those four cards, and add some TLM to the mix. VOILA! Now you have a gold card in your hands. Let’s level up and shine our gold NFT to stardust: you need four gold NFTs of the same card and more TLM than the previous shining process. To sum up, you need four of the same card with the same shining level, and a good amount of TLM in your pocket to shine a better card.
It looks expensive but it’s worth the effort.

I was skeptical at first, then I took an NFT arrow in the knee.
