Getting Started

Honeyland is a Play-to-Own game built on the Solana blockchain. This means players must have a Solana wallet in order to play. We recommend players set up a Phantom wallet or use our Social Sign On (SSO) feature to create a new wallet in seconds with a Google or Apple ID.
Additionally, players will generally find value in owning Honeyland NFTs in order to maximize their experience. These NFTs can be minted via NFT drops, purchased on the Honeyland marketplace or other secondary marketplaces, or earned during gameplay.

Starter Packs

When players first create their Honeyland account, they'll use Social Sign On (SSO) to create a new wallet or connect an existing Solana wallet. Once a player has created an account and linked a Solana wallet, they will be given a Starter Pack consisting of a Hive, one (1) Gen Z Queen, nine (9) Gen Z Bees (a few of the Gen Z Bees will unlock with XP).
Each of these Starter Pack items are in-game items, not NFTs, and therefore can be used in gameplay, but cannot be transferred or sold. Additionally, Gen Z Bees cannot breed, have limited endurance, have the longest recovery time in the game, and do not have any Landform specialty.

Free to Play

Players who wish to play Honeyland but cannot or do not want to pay to get started can play for free as long as they'd like in two different ways.

Limited Missions / Locked Tokens

For players who wish to play Honeyland with their Gen Z and other Bees before upgrading, they can do so in a limited capacity.
FTP players will be limited in the following ways:
  • They will be restricted from Hunting and/or Harvesting on some Lands. For instance, Gen Z Bees will not be able to Hunt on Extreme Lands.
  • They can only Attack other FTP players.
  • The HONEY earned on missions is an in-game asset only and cannot be converted into $HXD (although it will be backed 1:1 in our treasury for if/when the player upgrades to Beemium and would like to convert them).
  • They cannot play certain categories of games in the Honeyverse (i.e. luck and chance, PvP, etc.)
  • Will be subject to an Inactivity Fee of 10 HONEY or 10% of HONEY, whichever is greater, for every 30 days of inactivity. This fee will go to the Honeyland Treasury.
Once an FTP player chooses to upgrade to the Beemium account, they will immediately have full access to all Honeyland gameplay and items they have earned while in FTP mode.

Bee Rental System / Land Ownership

Other ways to play for free are to own Land and/or use Honeyland's Bee rental system.
Bee owners will be able to rent their Bees out in the Honeyland marketplace to other players to send their Bees on Harvesting and Hunting missions on their behalf.
Landowners will be able to charge commissions and entry fees for other players Harvesting and Hunting on their Lands.
Players in the Free to Play mode (who have not upgraded to a Beemium account) can earn HONEY through Land ownership and the Bee rental system, but are subject to the same restrictions as all other FTP players. In order to convert HONEY (the in-game asset) into $HXD, they will need to upgrade to Beemium.

Unlock Full Gameplay (Beemium Accounts)

In order to fully unlock Honeyland's core Play-to-Own missions and convert HONEY tokens into $HXD in their wallet, each player account must upgrade to a Beemium account.
A Beemium account upgrade is a one-time purchase in $SOL or $HXD, which will cost approximately $30 USD. The player will be given the option to upgrade when first joining Honeyland or can upgrade at any point after.
In order to create greater sustainability, 100% of the profits collected from Beemium account upgrades will be used to buyback HONEY tokens and will be put back into player rewards.

The Hive

Each player will get a Hive when they connect a wallet to their account. This will be where all of the player's assets are stored. It also serves as the control center for all Honeyland game activities.
From the Hive, players can see how much HONEY they have, can view the statuses of all of their Bees and Land, can plan and deploy Missions, can access the Honeyland marketplace, and a lot more. Essentially, the Hive is the player's 'Home' screen where they can access information and initiate actions within Honeyland.
Players also have the ability to cosmetically upgrade their Hive. These upgrades allow the player to decorate and customize their Hives by earning or purchasing upgrades. While you will not be able to see the missions taking place in other players' Hives, you will be able to see their assets.

Hive Level

The Hive Level will be determined by the total number of Bees in one's colony and the average stat points per Bee.
The Hive Level will be used to pair players on Attack missions to ensure both players have a similar strength of their colonies. Players will only be shown hives with a +/-10% difference in both the number of Bees and average stat points per Bee when choosing a Hive to attack. However, the exact difference will not be shown.
