‘Nyan Heroes’ Tops 100K Players on Epic Games, Reveals Solana NFT Rewards

Nyan Heroes, the Solana-based feline mech shooter, reported Friday that it has amassed over 100,000 players who have downloaded and played the game since its pre-alpha demo launched on the Epic Games Store on March 25.

“The Nyan Heroes pre-alpha demo has been in full swing for 10 days, and we have been absolutely purring with all of the reception it has received,” developer 9 Lives Interactive said in a Medium post.

With less than a week left until the end of the pre-alpha demo on April 9, Nyan Heroes announced plans Friday to offer leaderboard rewards for the top players of the demo, including Nyan Heroes Genesis Guardian NFTs and extra MEOW points that go towards the upcoming airdrop of the game’s NYAN token.

According to Nyan Heroes, the top three players will receive a Legendary Genesis Nyan NFT, an Ultrarare Genesis NFT, and a Rare Genesis Nyan NFT, respectively. Players who rank fourth to 10th will receive a Genesis Nyan NFT, while players who rank in 11th to 20th place will each receive a Genesis Guardian NFT.

“The leaderboard ranking is determined by total wins during the pre-alpha demo. The more wins you achieve, the higher your position on the leaderboard will be,” 9 Lives Interactive said.

According to the Medium post, the top 100 players will be shown on the leaderboard. Players who are not currently in the top 100, 9 Lives Interactive said, can find their rank at the bottom of the list with their username.

“Climb with every win! While the top 100 heroes bask in the limelight, each player’s rank and username are honored,” 9 Lives Interactive added on Twitter. “Tied wins? You’ll score the higher tier’s rewards! Plus, your MEOW points increase with every leaderboard triumph.”

For example, if Rank 500 and 501 have the same amount of wins, then Rank 501 will be granted the same reward as Rank 500. Nyan Heroes said that all MEOW rewards earned from the leaderboard boost will be added to a player’s point total before any multiplier is factored in. Ultimately, the top 7,500 players will all receive some kind of MEOW points bonus.

In January, Nyan Heroes said players who own a Nyan Heroes or Guardians NFT will earn extra rewards. Last weekend, 9 Lives Interactive offered double the MEOW points during its play-to-airdrop campaign in a special, limited-time promo. The NYAN token is expected to launch on Solana sometime following the conclusion of the play-to-airdrop campaign.
