Greetings, Crushie Pals! We’re thrilled to announce a new experimental feature added to Early Game, and it’s sure to take gaming to the next level! With this new feature, we can create even more visually stunning tiles for the world map, giving you a more exciting aesthetic to the Crushies World Map.
And the best part? Our system enables us to dynamically update the tile map at will or on a schedule, so you can expect to see new and exciting tiles frequently. We can create tiles that are cyberpunk, western and much, much more.
Just how cool is this feature?
Not only does this open up limitless possibilities when it comes to tile styles, it’s also incredibly easy to use. If you’re eager to try it out, all you need to do is select the Experimental Tiles option from the drop-down menu in the top menu bar.
If you want the Default Tiles again, simply use the drop down to reload the classic look of the World Map.
The last few months have been extremely busy here but we’ve managed to accomplish a number of important steps in our vision for the Crushie Universe. The first of which is the new dashboard, Crushie Dash (Dash.CuteCrushies.com).
The dashboard accomplishes a number of goals.
First, you can check the status of the Cute Crushies blockchain game. If we have an outtage, say, rewards don’t work for some reason, you can check on that on the Dash webpage.
You can also post a bug report so we can get right to fixing it. Finally, it enables us to build an external dApp hub that can utilize Cute Crushies and other fixtures for the Wax community.
About a month ago we built the Atomic Drop Maker and it didn’t wholly fit in with what we were doing, but sort of. It gave the community a much-needed tool for making NFT airdrops using the Atomic Assets smart contract. While it may not seem significant, it’s what makes Wax fun to use and easy to learn for developers and gamers alike: helpful tools, advice and assistance, great on-boarding experiences into blockchain games and playvesting.
After all, it’s not just a lack of ETH gas fees that make the Wax ecosystem great, it’s friendly, helpful people.
In that spirit, Atomic Drop Maker tries to bring back that spirit of help and excitement that got so many of us started in NFTs and blockchain (wow, some of us are really newcomers here!).
So back to what this announcement is really about:
The Crushie Dash is a hub to host various new dApps around the community, as well as a convenient hub for Cute Crushies activities. It currently includes a Leaderboard, Events & Festivals and more (much more in time).
We have some interesting plans for it that are almost there. In the meantime, some features are not enabled until Update 1 . Be sure to check it out here: Dash.CuteCrushies.com
–Oh, and one last thing before you go. We’ve released a minor map update to Early Game: You can now see other players on the map and the layout matches what you will likely see in Update 1 for World 1, Zone 1, Locale 1.
Yay! We are now on Session, an alternative communications channel you can use to stay in touch with us. Don’t worry we’ll continue on our usual channels @Discord and @Telegram. This will be yet another great way to get to know the latest about Cute Crushies and chat with other players like you.
Session is like Telegram except it gives you private keys and has some more security to prevent censorship.
The Session app is new territory for us but it looks like the wave of the future. We’re trying to stay ahead of the curve with regard to crypto communications and want this channel open to everyone should they have any issues reaching us and having fun with the whole Crushies community on Telegram and Discord.
Step 2 – Switch to the Wax Mainnet (Upper Right Corner of website)
Step 3 – Login with Your Wax ID
Step 4 – Click ‘Swap’
Step 5 – Select the pairs you would like to swap – Wax to Dust, or Dust to Wax. In this case, we want to sell Dust to get Wax. So the top cryptocurrency should say Dust and the bottom one should say Wax.
Step 6 – Type in how much Dust you would like to swap for Wax. You can also click the balance shown in the upper corner of this module, and it will automatically populate your entire balance for swapping for Wax.
Step 7 – Once you see how much Wax you will get back, click Swap. Your new balances will be updated shortly.

Introducing the Burrow House, Tree Stump House and The Tree House. Each one is a delightful, cozy place for your Crushies to return to after adventuring.
But what will Houses do?
Utility in the Early Game: Limited and/or To Be Announced. Houses are NOT required for participation in Early Game.
Dream Bits: Every week House owners have a chance of receiving a Dream Bit / Dream Bits. Dream Bits are the result of Crushies napping. You can blend Dream Bits into Dream Bubbles. Later, a new Creature Type will be introduced that can be blended using Dream Bubbles. Note: These NFT rewards may be adjusted upward or downward in the future.
Utility in the Blockchain Game: After an adventure, Crushies will need to nap. If they have a House all their own, they will have reduced cooldown and so will be able to go adventuring sooner. Any Crushies that don’t have their own place will stay in the Crushie Forest (which has a standard cooldown time).
Nap time reduction: After an adventure, Crushies will need to nap. If they sleep in a House, they will have a reduced cooldown, and so will be able to go adventuring sooner. Of course, any Crushies that don’t have room in a House will stay in the Crushie Forest and nap the standard amount of time.
Rentable: If there is spare room in your House, it can be rented out. The Crushies that stay as guests will be ready for adventures quicker, but the renter will need to pay the House owner. The House owner will be rewarded for renting out the capacity of their House.
Future Possibilities: We are considering a few more benefits to Houses but none are set in stone.
Stay tuned for more updates! Also, please remember: Everything introduced in this post may change at any time without notice and may not be representative of the 100% final product.
As we get closer to various checkpoints in development, we will be able to disclose more accurate information. Thank you very much for your support and understanding!
PS: A big thank you to everyone participating in Early Game on Telegram!
