1: Please briefly describe about you, Dark Frontiers and idea behind the name of project ?
My name is Ellie and I’m the marketing manager for Gamestarter!
I’ve been working in marketing and project management since 2017. I shifted from spearheading partnerships and project management for many different companies in the industry under a notable crypto PR firm. I later jumped into the world of gaming and fell in love with the idea of implementing NFTs into video games to empower ownership and true value.
The rest of the team, which has grown quite large since the beginning of Gamestarter, are all experienced veterans in game development and crypto entrepreneurship. You can learn more about the official team here: https://www.gamestarter.co/team
Dark Frontiers is an open-world universe attached to a DAO. For the people – by the people. The goal for DF is to accelerate the integration of crypto with gaming to fuel the flame for mass adoption. Players will soon be able to enhance their gaming and yield farming experiences through PC and also VR… in space. Let’s talk about some of the fuel for this rocket.
Players will be exposed to $DARK Energies represented as BSC which can be used within the game and are needed for performing actions and quests within the game.
In a first instance, it helps them forge and own land plots on the moon’s surface that are represented as unique NFTs. Dark Frontiers is powered by the $DARK (BEP-20) Energy Token that will be used to stake and forge land NFTs.
1.1: So what is the idea behind the name of project ?
The name “Frontiers” originates from: Borders between the known and unknown. “Dark” refers not only to the emptiness in space, but also to the dark yet beautiful sceneries the player will be exposed to.
This is how the Dark Frontiers came to fruition.
2: P2E is trending rightnow, So are you gonna make a game to catch up with the trend of the times, and there are enormous games in the market recently, what would make yours stand out of the crowd ?
Dark Frontiers is unlike any other project, so we’re not worried about competition. It’s going to be visually appealing with immersive gameplay. There will be many gameplay options to choose from like: multi platform experiences (mobile, desktop, and VR), strong P2E features with $DARK, and more to be released soon.
Our Discord has grown immensely in comparison to other games as well – the community there is the best! We also just reached 11k members 🎉 Check out the community http://discord.gg/gamestarter
We will release the game with haste. It will be released in segments, the first part (strategy) will come out within a month and later push the alpha version once it’s complete with player feedback. We will consult with the community and keep adjusting it on the go.
Side note: the open world, 3rd person RPG will be available in Q1 of 2022.
One very special aspect about Dark Frontiers is, and this is the only one I can tell you for now, is our NFT design. Users will be able to stake their $DARK tokens within their NFTs and earn interest based on the staking value. These NFTs, with their stakes, can also be transferred to other interested parties looking for digital real estate or in-game items… Another feature we like to talk about is the VR capability of the game. This is yet to be done in the industry and we’re taking the opportunity to release it to the world for others to follow suit
3: We would like to know more about the Tokenomics of Dark Frontiers ?
You can find the full tokenomics structure on both our website and with this GDrive link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18QqFFH_REGcYWqr7iQcjS6rTWx0y8f9Q/view
$DARK token will serve as the in-game energy unit. Energy is needed to power the gameplay functions – to travel, mine and merge NFTs. It can also be mined by claiming land on different planets. So $DARK will be very much like the heart and the blood of the game.
$DARK is a BSC-enabled token, but it will have a bridge to ERC-20
$GAME will also be featured, as Dark Frontiers will feature a dual token structure. $GAME will act as a booster to certain in-game processes, and you will also be able to buy DF NFTs with $GAME.
4: Could you immediately portray the top accomplishments you have achieved and your target accomplishments with schedules ?
Of course 🙂
Right now, we have successfully developed our own smart contract and minted the appropriate amount of $DARK to be distributed to the communities, launchpads, and investors. The design of the initial game setting is near-complete. It takes a long time to create custom environments and avatars with attractive animations. However we’ve been able to manage this workflow quicker than expected. We plan to release our staking system in-game this year, where users can get a taste of the power $DARK is capable of. Later, as we continue to dominate design and game development timelines, we are aiming to give you a game to play by Q1 of 2022.
5: And lastly, can you tell us a bit more about late 2021? Could you please share with us your long-term goals for the sector in which you create your project and your vision that will carry you to these goals? Can you tell us a bit more about those plans and how you aim to achieve them?
Have you had a look at our roadmap? We’re beating a lot of these deadlines but aim to follow our promises in case of any discrepancies that may pop up. Its software development- anything can happen at any time and we need to always be prepared for it. As we have a dedicated design team, blockchain development arm, and game development sector, we aim to distribute time where it’s efficient. For example, most blockchain development will be executed first and we will showcase this via our staking mechanism within NFTs. Then, after the game is developed, we will begin to plug in our custom smart contracts and protocols to interact with the game, making it a scalable and effective play2earn model. Time is energy, and we want to spend it wisely.
Dark Frontiers’ bullish roadmap includes the quadruple IGO for our $DARK token launch, listing in exchanges, and 1st game version release by the end of October! Stay tuned!
5.1: Can you give us more information about IGO ?
Dark Frontiers IGO is LIVE

Our IGO is launching off of 4 launchpads: Gamestarter (us), DAO Maker, RedKite, and GameFi. You can find all of the IGO details on Gamestarter with this link: https://igo.gamestarter.com/pools/darkFrontiers
October is just starting off and is already super eventful!
6: One of the serious problems with #play2earn games is that as a result of their success, players have flooded the market with an oversupply of tokens, causing their value to drop. What plans do you have to prevent the price of the $DF token from plummeting for similar reasons?
We are currently working with top market makers in the industry that help keep control of heavy sell offs- as any well funded company should take note of. It is important to supply the proper amount of liquidity consistently to mitigate a lot of these issues. Players will be incentivized to hold and stake $DARK due to the play2earn and interest model that is built. We are very wary of releasing most of our tokens and flooding the market so players and investors do not end up dumping copious amounts of the supply. Also, we’re giving users an outlet to spend their $DARK on the Gamestarter marketplace for DF-styled NFTs that they can use in-game. This helps us control a bit of the supply and prevent further dumping of the token.
7: Can a person make profit of your nft game even with a very small amount of money?
Anyone can make a profit with small amounts. We are working in a volatile market where $100 can easily turn into $1000+ if managed wisely. We’re aiming to incentivize users to engage with the play2earn and staking models so they can maximize their initial deposits through their interests: gaming!
8: Im slightly disappointed to see that the darkfrotlntiers will be a VR and PC experience only ¬ be having a mobile counterpart.With the growth of mobile gaming recently, aim to bring gaming to mass adoption,do u have any plans to have a mobile version too?.
You shouldn’t be disappointed! Ironically, mobile apps take far longer to build than PC and VR models. Down the road we will try to make a strategic version for mobile after the release of our first 2 platforms. That way we can acquire feedback and fix bugs that players may encounter to prepare for the development of a mobile app.
9.I read that in DarkFrontier each fusion will burn the previous NFTs and create new shapes and features of your ship. Will this model be profitable in the long term? Won’t this constant generation of new ships devalue the Dark Frontier NFT market? What can you tell us about this?
This is believed to be profitable in the long run – as everyone will race to try and create the rarest space ships.
In theory, this should not devalue the DF market. It will flood the marketplace with an array of options and the most sought after will be the ones that are valued the most.
Axie Infinity has a similar model: they take 2 Axies and breed a new one using the play 2 earn currency. They performed quite well with that model and it is a way to burn the play 2 earn currency so that you counteract the constant handing out of free coins.
10: Dark Frontiers is really a great project with Quadruple Launchpads: Dao Maker, Gamestarter, Red Kite and GameFi. Could you share how did your project achive this great start ?
Through Gamestarter, we have been able to acquire a ton of great connections within others’ networks. There has been a large spur of interest in the NFT gaming space where users and companies abroad will openly offer their resources and aid in the development of the business itself. We want to bring adoption to gaming in the crypto space so anyone who plays can benefit from merely starting from scratch with little in their pocket. Our team has built close relationships with the 3 mentioned launchpads and we aim to enhance these by helping grow their communities and creating a great game to play.
