4-Character Classes

Aggression – Brute force – Close-up carnage
  • The Time Warrior is an aggressive, front line fighter that wields melee weapons to deliver close up carnage.

Chronomancer (Mage)

Magic – Precision – Ranged destruction
  • The Chronomancer class uses the forces of the universe to destroy her enemies. The Quantum Staff is what makes this class so lethal at ranged damage. If you like keeping your enemies at a distance, the Chronomancer is the class for you.

Shadowblade (Ninja)

Stealth – Speed – A cunning death-dealer
  • The Shadowblade is an agile and stealthy melee fighter, dealing death to those who stand in the way. Wielding the Dual Blades, you’ll trade some defense for speed and slashing combo attacks.

Quantum Fixer (Medic)

Heal your friends, bring misery to your foes.

Skills, abilities, and equipment are saved to the Pocket watch, enabling you to progress through each class with whatever pace and style you prefer. So far, Big Time has four classes, namely Warrior, Chronomancer, Quantum, and Shadowblade.

5-NFT Game Assets

Big Time offers two types of NFTs in-game: Utility and  Cosmetic NFTs.

  • Utilities and add-on features are developed around SPACE NFT,
  • this is a way to participate in Earning Big Time tokens with genuine NFTs. Can be traded in and out of the game through the Vault. Integrated from On-chain to Off-chain.
  • Developers seem to indicate that most NFTs will be purely cosmetic, in order to avoid the “pay to win” situation from happening. Players will be able to earn and own these NFTs.
  • In addition to its built-in aesthetic value, SPACE NFT add-ons allow for the exploration of new worlds.

Utility NFTs

Time Machine

  • Time Machine is an item that the player will earn during the early phases of the game. Your kind of “room in the hotel” will allow you plenty of personalization (Portals, Extra rooms, crafting areas.)
  • Time Machine is also needed to unlock playable features and collect limited-edition NFTs.

Space

  • SPACE, Big Time’s version of virtual land, is used as an expansion to your Time Machine. You can upgrade your Time Machine with the SPACE NFT (Extra space, extra features).
  • SPACE is obtainable through the game (very rare) or marketplace. Only a certain amount will be for sale out of the total supply, with the remaining ones distributed across the Big Time adventure.
  • There are 5 rarity levels including Rare, Epic, Legendary, Mythic, Exalted, and 3 sizes including Small, Medium and Large.
  • SPACE has a rarity and the larger size will provide more slots, which increases the production capacity and the rate of creation of quality items.
  • The current total supply for SPACE is set to 600,000 units.

The Forge

  • The Forge is your weapon skin production center. Produce rare weapon skins based on harvesting in-game items, and processing them through your Forge for upgraded weapon cosmetics.

The Time Wardens

Time Wardens are summoned into SPACE and may be purchased in-game or through the Marketplace. The Time Warden’s main purpose is to either create Hourglass NFTs or fill them back up.

Cosmetic NFTs

  • NFT will be used for aesthetic purposes only and will not affect gameplay or character strength at all. And unlike in web2 gaming, you’ll actually OWN your rare gear, allowing you to trade, buy, and sell with other players with real world value, as Big Time’s popularity grows.

6-Token

  • Tokens are collected by battling enemies and completing quests in-game. Tokens can be used to purchase rare and exclusive cosmetic NFTs, reduce crafting times, and fix items in addition to their collecting value.
  • Big Time has repeatedly stated that the token will be entirely community-driven, with no pre-sale to anyone. This is great news and a wonderful reason to start playing right now, since it ensures that the system will be fair for all players.

7-ROI (Return On Investment)

Big Time offers Early Access to the game via VIP Pass NFTs. These passes allow players to play the game before the free-to-play global launch. There are Gold, Silver, Jade, and Ruby passes available for Early Access.  During Early Access, players can collect rare NFTs and experience the game first.

Cre: Big Time
  • At the time of writing, DJinn entered the Early Access version with the Jade VIP Pass (priced around $60-$80) Within a few weeks of playing, we obtained the Forge Mystery Box (currently priced around $60-$80). $160 from the time of writing).
