NonFungible hosts the first BlockCities creator contest: Sept 24th to 27th

Are you the BIGGEST builder in town? Here’s your chance to prove your city-building abilities create the best city in BlockCities! Be the best and win exclusive, BlockCities collectibles.


BlockCities in a few words

BlockCities is an architecture building and collecting game built on the Ethereum blockchain. Users can build unique buildings using the “Mystery Machine” – an on-chain generative machine that takes in ETH and spits out unique buildings. In the future, users will be able to use their buildings in their very own digital city. 

Up until today, users can trade buildings on BoxSwap, collect their favourite ones, or buy and sell on OpenSea. You can also learn about the unique construction of your building by visiting the building profile page. Want to create your own unique building? Visit the Mystery Machine and start building!

Now today, users can begin experimenting with the gameplay and building mechanics within the Blockcities. The demo functionality is live and needs testers and feedback for further platform development.

Note: the contest is free to enter and entirely free to play. Users are able to build buildings via the Mystery Machine, for free, but this is not required to participate in the Creator Contest. On the city game demo, buildings are provided at no cost.

How to build my city (in the demo)?

In the BlockCities demo, building your city is child’s play.

In the demo, it is not necessary to use the Mystery Machine first to create your buildings

By clicking on “Demo” on, the demo will load directly to this interface presenting your playground, the bottom button allows you to place buildings, and the 4 coloured buttons on the top-right to create other land features.

Then simply click on the map to start laying your routes, and choose how your roads will be made, between these 4 options:

Here’s the result for each:

Did you make a mistake while laying down your roads? No stress, re-clicking on an existing road will make it disappear.

The bottom button displays the building you can use in your city. For now, you have the choice between 8 types of buildings, but soon a lot more will be available … 😉

Once you master these few features… it’s your turn to play!
