Aurory is a role-playing game (RPG) on the Solana blockchain. As the game has been in development for the past few months, it is, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated games of 2022.
Following the huge success from the sale of the first 10,000 NFTs and a volume of nearly $80 million, the team is about to distribute the first AURY tokens through an IDO (Initial Dex Offering).
This article first provides an overview of the game followed by all the necessary information to participate in the IDO!
This article is offered in collaboration with Aurory.
Aurory, aiming for adoption
The part-French team has one watchword: ADOPTION. As the crypto world is still in its infancy, industry players must indeed manage to attract new users.
Through the latest technological improvements, high-quality games can now be developed to include intuitive and attractive Play-to-Earn mechanisms – probably the perfect combination to showcase the different possibilities offered by blockchains.
The game includes two distinct modes: PvE (Player versus Environment) and PvP (Player versus Player). Everything takes place in Antik, a retro-futuristic fully hand-drawn universe populated by creatures called Nefties.
Aurory PvE – play against the environment
In this mode, you’ll follow the quest of Helios. You will have to fulfill quests through interactions with NPCs (Non-Player Characters) and battles.
You will face off with creatures, and each victory will allow you to advance in the quest as well as to learn how cryptocurrencies and blockchains work.
The interesting aspect of these battles lies in the fact that your victories will allow you to earn NFTs.
Creatures that you’ll defeat will indeed become yours. You will be able to use them in the multiplayer mode, and they will be directly sent to your wallet.
Note: this game is free to play and is constantly evolving. The team plans to keep releasing new plots as the game is further developed.
Aurory PvP – play against other players
The multiplayer part of the game will include several modes: a friendly mode and a tournament mode are currently planned. More specific games will be developed in the future. A yearly prestige tournament is even already planned for the best players. In this tournament, if your Nefty dies, it’ll be gone for good!
After having formed your team of Nefties, you can compete with players around the world through an innovative matchmaking system that enables you to predict your opponent’s strategy.
Nefties have sets of special abilities (e.g., strength, support, mobility). Those abilities along with the player’s choices (e.g., battle order, location on the map, selected actions) will make the mechanics of the game.
Each player will have a team of 3 Nefties. The first one to eliminate all Nefties from the opposing team wins!
Although the precise game mechanics haven’t clearly been revealed, we already know that Nefties will evolve as they gain experience through battles.
Staking AURY, the game’s token, will be required to access tournaments and receive rewards. But do not worry, the PvE mode will enable you to get everything you’ll need to play the PvP mode.
As an ambassador for adoption, Aurory makes equal opportunity the focus of the project.
All you need to know about Aurory and the team
Armed with first-class investors, including Solana, Serum, Alameda or FTX, the team has large ambitions.
The game will include its own marketplace that will leverage Serum and enable players to trade rewards in exchange for tokens or to directly acquire objects they might need in order to play.
The fast transactions on Solana and the security of the decentralized exchange will enable players to trade on a high-quality marketplace in the fairest way possible.
The creation of a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) is also planned. The DAOrory will be composed of NFT holders from the first Solanart collection and will initially receive 10% of the sale’s proceeds (1000 SOL) and a portion of royalty fees generated on a secondary market (1.75%).
The main idea is to use those funds to collect NFTs from other Solana-based projects and to create a treasury collectively owned by first supporters of the game. Participants will be able to vote and make proposals regarding the governance and growth of this treasury.
AURY token launch
The IDO (Initial Dex Offering) will start on October 21st, 2021 at 2pm UTC.
It will take place on the Aurory website and will leverage the IDO program developed by Mango Markets. The overall allocation amounts to 7,000,000 tokens (7% of the total supply).
Warning: many scammers will probably swamp social media with fake links. Only click on links provided by Aurory. It will be posted on the official Twitter and Discord accounts on 21st October. You can also use this link:
The sale will be conducted in three distinct phases:
Phase 1 of the Aurory IDO
You will have 48 hours to deposit your USDC into a smart contract vault. Offer and demand, through an auction mechanism, will define the initial price of the AURY token.
During this phase, you can adjust your deposit as you see fit.
Tutorials to deposit:

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xYW8eLrWkk (withdraw)
Phase 2 of the Aurory IDO
This is the adjustment phase. If the announced token price suits you, no further action is required.
If you consider the token price too high, you may withdraw USDC.
This phase will last 24 hours and deposits will not be possible. If you withdraw your funds, you will not be taking part in the IDO anymore.
Phase 3 of the Aurory IDO
The last phase, the redemption phase. You will have one month to redeem your tokens. In the unlikely event that you forget to redeem your tokens, they will certainly be lost permanently.
The initial distribution of a token is one of the most important phases of any project as it involves having a portion of the supply in circulation distributed on the open market.
To ensure equal opportunity, tokens held by team members or by early investors will not be available directly after the IDO. Their tokens will be linearly unlocked over several years. The objective is to avoid large profit takings that would lead to a price crash playing against IDO participants.
This once again proves the team’s seriousness as they aim to build a strictly inclusive product.
The only circulating tokens after the IDO will thus be those of the public sale and of the liquidity pools.
The token will also be listed on FTX on October 24th.
