Overview

Axie Infinity: Homeland is one of the flagship games in the Axie Infinity franchise. It is a game that will span multiple genres including simulation, RPG, strategy, and more. In addition, it is the gathering place for the Axie Infinity community where they will be able to socialize, play, and build in a metaverse experience. It is currently released in Alpha and will continue to evolve over the years. In its current Alpha state, it is primarily a building simulation game where players gather resources, build structures, process materials, craft items, sell items to Adventurers to go battle, and trade with other players in the Auction House. It can only be played by people who own the Axie Infinity Land Plot digital collectibles right now, but in the future, it will open up to players who may not necessarily own Land.

Responsibilities

To date, blockchain technology has been boring and mainly focused on trading. Axie is here to change that with fun, dynamic gameplay that allows players to improve and trade assets that they have complete and total ownership over. Axie is also more than a game— it’s a gaming platform with infinite possibilities and potential spinoff mini-games so you’ll have a lot of freedom to start new initiatives and make them your own.

Currently, we are looking for a Senior Game Designer to specifically work on our Land gameplay, the alpha version is live now here for players who own Land plots: Homeland. You can learn more about the project in this presentation made back in Sep 2022 as well: AxieCon Land Presentation. The possibilities and creativitites that can go into this ambitious project is truly infinite.
