$BERRY is the primary in-game currency in Pixels. $BERRY is the main way for a player to progress and navigate through our game loop.

This currency is a ‘soft currency’ - it is vital to core gameplay loops and needs to be accessible and easily earned in-game.

The generation of this currency in-game in its early stages is through the in-game store. Players can sell resources they generated to our in-game store to exchange their resources for $BERRY.

The primary burn mechanism is purchasing in-game items that progress players further along our game loop. In-game items that unlock new industries, activities, areas, quests, and content. Players who do not own land will also need to $BERRY to maintain their land.

We have several levers to adjust the incoming supply of $BERRY.

  • Controlling the generation of resources

    • Adjusting replenishment times of resources

    • The number of inputs required to generate a resource

    • The output of a given resource

    • The effort to harvest a particulate resource

    • The amount of energy it takes to complete certain actions

  • In-game store prices

    • The prices of in-game items will be adjusted on both the buy and the sell side

In the future, we also have the option of limiting or removing our in-game store - which would stop the minting of new $BERRY altogether!
