Thank you all for participating in our last AMA on Telegram, in which our CEO of Antler Interactive Anna Norrevik and Anastasia Marketing together with the Antler Interactive team addressed questions from community regarding My Neighbor Alice.
HERE OUR RECAP
Muhammad Ryan : Hi everyone and welcome to the AMA on Forum Crypto Moonlight Official Group We’re honored to host an Ask-Me-Anything session with My Neighbor Alice 🥳🥳🥳
Muhammad Ryan :Before moving on to segment 1, could you please tell us a little about your background
Anna Norrevik : My name is Anna Norrevik and I’m the CEO of Antler Interactive, which is the studio behind My Neighbor Alice. I’ve been 7 years in the games industry including 5 years at Paradox Interactive, as team leader/producer for 7 expansions, including the largest game project at Paradox at the time, Crusader Kings 3, which was released in Sept 2020.
Anastasia : My name is Anastasia. And I am working with Marketing together with the Antler Interactive team. My background: I have an MA in Business and Marketing. Ex-professional athlete and gamer. 🎮 I am working closely with blockchain, crypto, and gaming and have vast experience in these fields.
Muhammad Ryan : Q1, can you tell a little about MyNeighborAlice?
Anna Norrevik :My Neighbor Alice is a social creative multiplayer builder game, where anyone can buy and own virtual islands, collect and build exciting items, and meet new friends. Inspired by successful games such as Animal Crossing, the game combines the best of the two worlds – a fun narrative for regular players who want to enjoy the gameplay experience as well as an ecosystem for players who want to collect and trade NFTs, even if they have no idea what an NFT is.
Muhammad Ryan : Q2, What type of blockchain do MyNeighborAlice use? why did MyNeighborAlice choose that blockchain?
Anastasia : The game will run on Chromia blockchain (https://chromia.com/). Some of the factors why do we pick this blockchain: from technological standpoint. The first and most important layer to this project is the backend infrastructure. The project was created on the fundamental idea that it will deploy the Chromia platform as a layer 2 solution. Chromia is well-known for its innovative relational blockchain technology and RELL (https://rell.chromia.com/en/master/), a programming language. The backend is a postchain database that is used in conjunction with unity to operate accounts, token transfers, relational data and user progress, among many other things. It’s meant to follow the development of cross chain playability and interaction with NFTs. The second layer to the project is the unity development. The largest part is the procedural building system. It’s essential that it is fun, feels great and is on par with other building games on the market. Second biggest is the focus on gameplay loops and daily activities with player retention in consideration. We also work on connecting the backend with frontend, login-registration edge cases, and multiplayer scalability & stability. The third area in the project is the economic infrastructure. “Property/Plot” auctioning, asset trading, token transactions.
It is important to note that the blockchain infrastructure is “hidden” for players who are not interested in the underlying technology. We want to attract regular players who want to enjoy the gameplay experience. But for those interested in diving deeper into the game, there is a space for blockchain enthusiasts as well.

Muhammad Ryan : Q3, what kind of security do MyNeighborAlice use to protect player data?
Anastasia :It is not clear what safety & security means here, of course nothing can ever be secure enough, we can although compare ourselves with the direct competitors.
Originals is Chromia’s non fungible asset protocol, it allows to decentralize complex logic and information (such as values).
This means that your non fungible assets (what in Ethereum are known as NFTs) are much more decentralized than other blockchains, this translates into shifting the control over these assets from us (the game developers) towards the users.
The bottom line is that you have more freedom to use the assets and – should the company ever fail – you’ll be able to play the whole game with your assets on blockchain forever.
Should we get hacked, this would not change much for the users.
The process of full decentralization will be progressive (and probably slow) but the whole point is to transfer the ownership to the community that will be able to take more and more decisions autonomously in DAO like fashion (atm called Chromunity.)
We got a lot of material about the safety and security highlighted in our Whitepaper http://bit.ly/AliceWP.
Muhammad Ryan :Q4, what kind of profit will MyNeighborAlice give to investors?
Anastasia: There are a proportion of the tokens reserved for user incentives. By completing quests in the game, players could earn ALICE tokens. This design is to encourage everything and everybody involved in the community of The ALICE game is being rewarded for their participation.
There are many ways in which users can monetize their time on the platform:
Staking Yield and Earnings: One of our strategic visions within My Neighbor Alice is to create monetary incentives for the most committed and motivated players.Based on our staking and reward projections, we will allocate a fair amount of tokens on staking rewards.
NFT incomes: NFTs, including land, can be rented to other players. The smart contract will make sure that the borrower cannot resell or destroy the object, and makes sure that object returns to the owner when the rent period ends.
Selling assets: Users can create and sell ASSETS as NFTs on the marketplace.
Playing and participating in the game: In the Game, not only can creators profit from their creations, players can play-to-earn by collecting resources, rewards, and tokens.
Muhammad Ryan : Q5, Will tokens from MyNeighborAlice soon be traded on several markets?
Anastasia :It is in talks, but we can’t reveal much information about that right now. Please stay tuned on our social media and check our blog for the recent updates!

SESSION QUESTION FROM TWITTER
Muhammad Ryan : Q1. From @Mekka83325887
The name MyNeighborAlice seems to be very interesting. Does it have any story behind it? Can you share us with the inspiration for approaching to this name?
Anna Norrevik : Good question! The name is actually a mix of inspiration from the anime movie title “My Neighbor Totoro” and the name of the main character of the game: Alice. Alice is your neighbor that greets you when you enter the game, gives you the introductory quests as well as sells you land plots.
It is our Art Director Oliwer Svensson, who came up with the idea of the game, who also decided on the name.
Muhammad Ryan : Q2. From @iseker1905
There are many projects similar to MyneighborAlice, what are the advantages or differences of MyneighborAlice from similar projects?
Anna Norrevik : My Neighbor Alice is unique in that it is an open-world game with a strong visual identity based on appealing images conveying fun gameplay and cuteness, and in particular that it is intended for non-blockchain skilled players as the primary target group. Especially players of games like Animal Crossing and Minecraft. This means we’re aiming for a much bigger market than many of the other blockchain games that are already out there.
Muhammad Ryan : Q3. From @elvie3193
Where did you get the inspiration for this unique project idea? And what influence will we have on the crypto industry due to the project?
Anna Norrevik : Starting with your last question, the game offers a new unobtrusive way of connecting an exciting game narrative, blockchain features and in-game DeFi elements. It also offers exclusive game tools such as NFT creator. For this purpose My Neighbor Alice involves Chromia Originals, an innovative protocol for creating and issuing NFTs, which offers a more extensive and complex functionality than standard NFTs. In this respect, My Neighbor Alice will be able to store much more data about items on-chain.
Another innovation in the game is its decentralised governance model and DAO driven game development. ALICE token holders will be invited to join the Decentralised Autonomous Organization called the Community Council. Players get to vote on important game proposals and issues, additional functionality, new NFTs and approving NFTs created by users with the help of an NFT creator. The inspiration for the Community Council was taken from real-world experience with liquid democracy being in the centre of the model.
Imagine a game that can not be shut down, lives forever, where players control the project. A new way to implement games, challenging old models of doing business. My Neighbor Alice aims to push the boundaries of blockchain gaming by letting the users control the game and development. A public democratic application, with formal control by players and other stakeholders such as investors.
Muhammad Ryan : Q4. From @Rhada25
in the game My Neighbor Alice, do you also have a mobile version to be released? How do users take advantage of this game? Will you allow interconnectivity to play online with friends?
Anastasia : Players will be able to get access to the game through traditional game platforms, such as Steam as well as Alice official website.
We also have an idea to make it cross platform later after the release of the game.
My Neighbor Alice includes a variety of in-game features designed to advance and upgrade users’ gaming experience, such as:
– Players can trade their land and other in-game items, such as houses, fences, animals and plants in the virtual in-game marketplace.
– Virtual islands are important elements of the game infrastructure. Players can purchase plots of land from Alice after the onboarding or in the marketplace. It is important to note that there is a scarce supply of plots in the universe and each piece of land is represented in the form of NFT tokens.
– Avatars are used to represent players in the game. Players can customize and personalize their avatars with the help of cosmetic items and modify it by installing different assets to it.
– Players can collect and trade various in-game items, such as houses, fences, plants and animals in the in-game marketplace.
– My neighbor Alice will have a reputation system that rewards players as good landowners with increasing benefits (up to participating in the Community Council).
– My Neighbor Alice will enable various possibilities for players to work on a shared goal and join resources to complete fun activities. For example, the game will enable community-created events where players will participate in activities and competitions.
– My neighbor Alice will also enable a decentralised forum, where users will be able to discuss the game activities, figure out the upcoming votings schedule within the Decentralized Organization, search for new friends, etc.

Muhammad Ryan : Q5. From @Arshad4318160
On which blockchain Alice game is building also don’t you think gasfee are a issue? Any plans of programs like staking, buyback-burn of Alice tokens ?
Anastasia : I think I have already answered it here. And we can’t add more information on the token for now 😊
In short: The project is built on Chromia which is used as L2 solution on top of Ethereum.
Anastasia : Thank you for having us! Great AMA and we are glad that so many of you are interested in the project!
Don’t forget to give us a follow 😉
