Aephia turns TWO!

Aephia 2 Year Anniversary

On July 18th, 2021, Prometheus & Funcracker opened the doors to one of the first Star Atlas guilds (aka DACs) in existence. Since then, Aephia Industries‘ vision resonated with well over 1700 Star Atlas enthusiasts. We are here today because of them, because of you. We owe our success to all of you!

Congratulations Aephians! We’re two years into this roller-coaster of a journey, and things are starting to heat up on the Star Atlas side! We embraced the most promising metaverse game very early on, but if you’ve just heard about Star Atlas in 2023, you are still early. No one will downplay the many obstacles we’ve encountered along the way, but they have shaped us into what we are today. And our community today is stronger than ever before!


Aephia Anniversary PFP 2023
Aephia Anniversary PFP 2023

These last two years, we have been working hard to mold Aephia into the community we want it to be: Star Atlas focused, sharing knowledge with the wider community, an incubator for cool game-related concepts, and governed by the people.

At COPA 2022, we lifted the veil on many of the things we had been working on, while also going a bit deeper into two of the awesome game-extending features that will form a core component of Aephia Industries in the metaverse:

  • Membership Profiles
  • (Co)mission Board

(these are both working titles)

Earlier this year, we published our first State of Aephia document (internally), shining a little more light on the work done during the second half of 2022, and we look forward to giving a new update on Membership Profiles and our DAO setup at COPA 2023, later this year!

However, as it’s our anniversary today, we felt the need to share something cool this week instead of waiting any longer. To that end, we are happy to announce that one of our big side projects is about to come to life!

ALF NFT Project

Our in-house NFT project, AEP Life Form (ALF in short), is beginning its launch sequence!

For the past 18 months, we have been working on a Solana NFT campaign that:

  • has a ton of potential, allowing it to reach outside of the confines of Aephia, or even the wider Star Atlas community
  • will bring Star Atlas to more people
  • is appealing to people who are in the NFT space
  • just absolutely rocks

We are now at a stage where we are comfortable sharing more with our members, and we will do so tomorrow! On July 19th, we’ll share the ALF Lite Paper in the member-only area of our Discord server! We’re looking forward to your reactions and feedback!

Follow our dedicated Twitter account, @AEPLifeForm, to stay up to speed from now on!

Project Cataclysm

We would be remiss not to mention that one other, well-known side-project today: Project Cataclysm (working title). We’ve been asked about its status a lot since the teaser trailer was dropped right before Christmas 2022. Cataclysm is to be a 1-vs-1 card game set in one of the most famous locations in the Galia Expanse: the Cataclysm! [red: who would have guessed?]

We have been making steady progress on this project for well over a year, and we’re quite happy with how Cataclysm is shaping up! This being a passion project by the community, it does take a lot of time to build on the side. As such, we are not yet ready to reveal more details or glimpses today. Stay tuned to learn more at COPA 2023, though!

COPA 2023

We are, of course, aware that most of our members are also quite eager to learn more about our upcoming Aephia DAO, Member(ship) Profiles, and our (Co-)Mission board (working title). As mentioned before, we are going to shine a spotlight on all of these during our COPA 2023 presentation. And we will definitely have more information to share than last year, so stay tuned!

COPA 2023 is going to be a blast!

Anniversary Schedule

Last year we organized a full week of events to celebrate our 1-year milestone! We even got the team to organize a 426 Live event in the smack middle of the week! 😉 This year, we have again spread out our celebrations over multiple days, but we’re doing different things! And once again, the team happily stepped up to collaborate with us, in an even bigger fashion, during this festive week!

Below you will find our anniversary schedule for this year. It’s nothing like last year! We’re cutting it a little shorter, but only because we’re packing a ton of stuff into the next few days.

Tuesday – July 18th

Wednesday – July 19th

  • Release of the ALF Lite Paper (internally) [by Aephia]

Congratulations!

To wrap this up, to all Aephians: Thank you for trusting us with your time and energy!

We are very grateful to all community members that have actively participated within Aephia these last two years! A special shout-out has to go to our Community Experts, Metaverse Explorer, our Data Runners, and our ALF & Cataclysm teams! You have all contributed in a major way to shaping Aephia into the wonderful home among the stars it is today! You have our eternal thanks!

Happy 2nd-anniversary, everyone!

Leonardo cheers for Aephia
Cheers!

Joni Award

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #117

A short and sweet issue this week, as news and reveals from the team have quieted down a bit. Of course, we’re getting close to the big Community Week event (Feb 26 – March 1), and it’s widely expected that there will be some interesting announcements (if not actual releases) during that week! What we do have for this week is a new JNavigating Star Atlas episode, Joni nominations to vote on, and more DAC stats!

Ogrika Ruch - PURI skin

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #116

Last week was pretty action-packed despite there being no gameplay releases or updates. The team launched a new XXS racing ship and made 3 limited edition skins available, but with a twist. In addition, they released the 6th and final episode of CORE Act 2! Lastly, we received more details on Crew members, and a former Econ team member has been working hard to provide us with early DAC Analysis. This will be a somewhat longer one, so strap in!

DAC Launch

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #115

We’ve officially entered the second month of the year 2024, and the team has launched its highly anticipated DAC Platform! Exactly 3 years ago, the team (only a handful of people) published their Whitepaper and shared their vision with the world. Since then, dozens of DACs (aka guilds) have been created, but there was no way to officially register these with Star Atlas. Those days are now in the past!

This release was not all, however. The team also announced a brand new ship, the Ogrika Ruch. When it goes on sale, it will do so along with 3 exclusive skins! And there is something special happening with those skins.
