A space of endless doors and passages setting the stage for a virtual initiation into the hidden paths and secret treasures of the future
Labyrinthine Unreal is a game of mystery and exploration, a virtual maze that spans multiple media, metaverses, and real geographical locations. It aims to create a uniquely immersive experience, synthesizing the worlds of Alternate Reality Games, NFT art and VR gaming.
The Labyrinth's lore is steeped in some of the most obscure riddles of ancient civilizations, cults, philosophies, and secret societies. It follows their occult concepts, hidden histories, and agendas through wild mutations, splits, and warring factions all the way to the bleeding edge of contemporary thought, science, politics, and futuristic societies.
The Labyrinth hosts NFTs by various artists, from game items to animal familiars to full blown architectural constructions, making it a treasure trove for all art collectors and puzzle aficionados. What may not fit in the game may be exhibited in the Art Galleries of the TaurosDAO world or minted and sold in our Front Shoppe.
Navigate a 3-D interactive city that may be purchased as an NFT. Stumble upon rare “relics” and NFT collectibles with unlockable content, which can be obtained through achievements like puzzle solving or via direct in-game purchases. Purchased items may be resold on secondary to other players looking for clues so hold their secrets close to your chest.
Solve a variety of riddles and puzzles for advancement and rewards. Some puzzles are self-contained, while others are trans-metaversal (providing a thread of breadcrumbs which may lead to worlds outside the Labyrinth). Their solution may depend on the correct sequence being followed, or it may be random as long as all the pieces of the puzzle are collected.
Gear up for your journey in uniquely interactive 3-D rendered Initiation Masks. Each mask contains a unique combination of elements, granting different skills and abilities to their owners. Most importantly, masks are key to accessing and navigating certain areas of the Labyrinth, for one cannot enter the underworld without their protection.
◉ Production of 7110 3-D Initiation Masks Collection started. Mask avatars are a major component of the Labyrinthine Unreal world. They are the player’s ticket into the early stages of the game as each mask has its own rarity, lore, and in-game properties, and holds a unique digital fingerprint to unlock specific areas of the Labyrinth. 99 Masks will be set aside for reward events and promotional giveaways. For more info see our docs page.
