Hello Astar community from SFY Labs
We are a team of graphic designers and web developers well-known in the dotsama ecosystem for successful NFT collections such as Donkey Gang. We have collaborated with various teams like RMRK, Bifrost, Subsquid, Kodadot, and of course, Astar, of which we proudly count ourselves as Donkey holders.
We have also partnered with Parity as artists for the Sub0 2022, creating artwork for the event.

SFY Labs is a pioneer in utilizing the RMRK protocol, initially focusing on artistic and community-oriented approaches and now venturing into game-dapp development. In recent months, we have expanded our team and started working on our first game based on the use of NFT 2.0, called:
AGE OF CHRONOS: Rebellion’s Echo
AGE OF CHRONOS: Rebellion’s Echo, is a web-based dungeon crawler that utilizes NFT 2.0 technology to provide an immersive gaming experience. Players can collect unique heroes, items, materials, and treasures in the form of combinable NFTs and explore dungeons. These dungeons, generated procedurally and randomly, allow players to experience different gameplay with each session, ensuring an endless variety of playable dungeons.
The user-friendly design of AGE OF CHRONOS: Rebellion’s Echo incorporates real-time actions to explore the game world. Players can send companions called “Expedition Pets,” represented by NFTs DONKEY GANG and SAURUS CREW. Donkeys bring back game items (real NFTs) based on Donkey Power and player level, while Saurus bring back game materials for crafting, distributed according to player level.
Combat can be automated, allowing players to collect NFT rewards effortlessly. Rare NFTs and strategic choices in combat are rewarded with higher NFT rewards. Each player is represented by one or more in-game heroes with skills (attack, defense, magic, luck) that can be enhanced by items and equipment used by the hero. Better skills increase the chances of obtaining higher-value rewards.
Dungeons are generated randomly, ensuring unique experiences for players; no two dungeons will be the same. New items, materials, and equipment will be added during development to increase challenge and engagement. Each dungeon’s difficulty will increase with game progress, offering better rewards but also presenting tougher enemies.
Developers will interact with the community by adding timed challenges, such as a series of dungeons with a limited number of final rewards or weekends with double-value rewards. The descent into dungeons will be in first person, emphasizing the NFT graphics, inspired by games like Ultima Underworld or the more recent Legend of Grimrock.
Story and Setting (Brief):
In a dystopian future plagued by war and environmental disasters, Earth stands on the brink of destruction. Humanity’s last hope lies with the Arkonians, an advanced alien race, who offer an ultimatum: find peace within six months or face extinction. Amidst this chaos, Nomindo Corp seizes power, erasing history and manipulating minds to maintain control.
A beacon of hope emerges: Zaratrix, the last survivor of the resistance group Order of Adam, forms the Time Squad. Equipped with ChronoTech Portals, they explore temporal labyrinths called ChronoDungeons, uncovering ancient knowledge, alien technology, and the truth behind Nomindo Corp’s rise to power. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance as they fight to restore freedom and reclaim Earth’s lost history. This is the Age of Chronos: Rebellion’s Echoes.
AGE OF CHRONOS: Rebellion’s Echo will be developed using the Unity game engine within 3 to 6 months, depending on the content and complexity of the gameplay phases to be implemented. The development process will be iterative and incremental, aiming to have a playable phase (exploration) available as soon as possible to build a growing player base that will begin collecting initial rewards for future use as the game is populated with features.
The game’s innovation lies in equipping NFTs. Using the ERC-6220 specification, “Composable NFTs utilizing Equippable Parts,” players can associate “child NFTs” with characters, customizing avatars with equipped items. Each character can equip up to 4 different items, creating separate “child” contracts for each item. These added items enhance the abilities and characteristics of characters, altering the avatar profile picture.
Dynamic On-Chain Attributes:
Age of Chronos offers further customization through the ERC-7508 specification, “Dynamic On-Chain Token Attributes Repository,” allowing dynamic attributes to be associated with both “parent tokens” (main characters) and “child tokens” (equipable items). Attributes can include special abilities, combat statistics, or any unique feature influencing gameplay.
Participate in the Presale: Acquire special incubators during the presale event, each containing one of four types corresponding to characters in the game. Owners of these incubators will receive respective pre-minted parent tokens at the presale’s end.
Equip Items: After obtaining characters, equip them with items by purchasing or trading corresponding NFT items represented by “child” contracts. Equip up to 4 items per character to enhance abilities and statistics.
Customize Attributes: Progress through the game’s missions to acquire attributes. Customize characters and items with these attributes, creating unique avatars and tailored gaming strategies.
How to participate in the presale:
Nb: The start of the pre-sale will be communicated on our twitter account: @SFY_Labs

You can easily reserve one of the 1000 genesis nfts by purchasing one of the incubators on the Singular marketplace:
As explained there will be 4 different Genesis characters, who will have different characteristics:
Ryker Blade: DAMAGER
Ryker is a muscular warrior with astonishing mastery in the use of swords and combat weapons. He is known for his extraordinary physical strength and skill in close combat.
Ryker has been trained in martial arts since a young age and has perfected his skills through years of constant training. His superhuman strength allows him to defeat opponents with powerful strikes and skillful maneuvers.
Luna Stronghold: GUARDIAN
Luna is a brave and resilient fighter who wears impenetrable armor. Her prowess in defense is unmatched, and she is capable of protecting herself and her companions from the most powerful blows. Luna comes from a family of master armor smiths and grew up learning to create and wear durable armor. She honed her defensive skills during countless battles.
Aria Zephyrion: TECHNOMANCER
Aria is a technomancer mage with the extraordinary ability to combine magical objects and ancient artifacts with modern technology, thereby creating new items of incredible power.
Her presence is accompanied by an aura of mystery, with peculiar traits that clearly indicate a connection to a non-human race, although these traits are barely perceptible. In her appearance, Aria had bright eyes of a silvery color that seemed to reflect the secrets of the universe.
Thaddeus Luckstride: MASTER OF LUCK
Thaddeus is a fortunate adventurer who always seems to find the best way out. He can avoid traps and exploit unexpected opportunities.
Thaddeus was born with an extraordinary dose of luck, which has helped him in countless dangerous situations. This luck enables him to make wise choices and find valuable items at the most opportune moments.
SFY Labs aims to enhance the gaming experience and, most importantly, the utility of NFTs in gaming. The ASTR tokens received by the team through dApp staking will be entirely used for the game’s development and the creation of high-impact artistic NFTs.
For this reason, we will not offer Astar rewards from dApp Staking to players of our game, but in game Nfts. We believe this practice is commonplace and cannot guarantee truly enticing rewards to encourage players to maintain continuous and prolonged activity. The game, after an initial speculation, would lose interest or only reward early players. It is more fitting to utilize the network exclusively for interaction with NFT 2.0, which is something truly innovative, unlocking ever-new and entertaining dynamics for our community.
Once this goal is achieved, we are confident it will lead to the game’s growth and increased interest in the NFT market, eventually culminating in cross-collection usage of the created NFTs.
It would be highly intriguing for players to participate in events promoted by friendly teams and parachains with cross-collection NFT rewards.
In this context, we immediately think of Back To Asgard, the collection created for Bifrost. How cool would it be to move Thor’s hammer into Age of Chronos and use it as a legendary weapon in the game? Everything created by SFY Labs, including collections and artworks, will somehow be part of this small ecosystem we are creating.
