Through Aspect programming, we've introduced a fully on-chain NPC (Non-Player Character) to the fully on-chain games on Artela! In this immersive gaming world, players can register their accounts as automated NPC players who engage in battles with other real players based on algorithms.

The image below shows a game where the player controls character 209 while player 24 is a fully on-chain NPC, uncontrolled by off-chain components, battling alongside real players in the Royale world.

To get started with JIT Gaming:

  1. Visit the Discord faucet to collect your starting resources. You'll need at least 0.0001 ART to start gaming.

  2. Upon your first visit to the game interface, click "Connect Wallet." Currently, we support Metamask for wallet integration.

  3. After connecting your wallet, click Press to init game account This will require a one-time transfer of 0.0001 ART for account initialization.

Once the game is loaded, you'll find your player ID at the bottom. Identify your character's position on the game board by looking for the red icon in the upper-right corner of each character. Now, you can control your character using the WSAD keys, arrow keys, or by clicking on the on-screen arrows. When your character shares a grid with other players, you can eliminate them, earning 1 point. Achieve a total of 5 points in your game wallet to complete the galaxy mission.
