About Atheios Spark: Forge
Atheios Spark: Forge is an early, in development game demo created by the Atheios team. We are using Atheios Spark: Forge to explore new and unique ways of integrating Atheios and smart contracts into game play. Atheios Spark: Forge is a 3D single player, first person shooter style game, with some RPG elements. While Atheios Spark: Forge is a single player experience, an internet connection is required to interact with the Atheios blockchain and smart contracts.
While playing Atheios Spark: Forge you will notice at the top of the screen there is a Heads Up Display (HUD) that shows the following information:
- Your Atheios (ATH) Address
- Your current Atheios (ATH) Balance
- The Current Block number from the Atheios blockchain
- Your Joules Power % (Percent Ownership of the Joules Smart Contract)
- Your Joules Power Bar which fills at a rate according to your Joules Power %
- The weapon (and ammo) you are currently holding in your characters Left and Right hand
- A Frames Per Second (FPS) counter (graphics rendering performance)
Once you complete the A Joule To Behold quest given by Trimo in game, you will unlock the Joules Power. If you imported a wallet that has stake in the Joules Smart Contract, you will start to generate Joules Power and be able to use it to temporarially become invulnerable. The more stake you have in the contract, the faster your Joules power will regenerate! You can activate the Joules Power by pressing TAB or J. When the Joules Power is active, your Joules Power Bar will start to depleate, but you will be invulnerable during this time. While the Joules Power is active, your character will display a purple shield (if in 3rd person camera view), and part of the Atheios HUD will also turn purple.
When you pause the game, you can check your Atheios Wallet Details, Joules Smart Contract Integrations details, change Volume and Graphics Quality options, and view the Controls to play Atheios Spark: Forge.
