What is the core gameplay of Loaded Lions: Mane City and what can players do in the game?
Loaded Lions: Mane City is a tycoon simulation game where players design and build their dream cities and mansions using Gold and Diamonds generated from the in-game land they own, alongside businesses they build. These include gyms, banks, and record stores.
It all begins with a plot of Land, which passively generates Diamonds and allows you to build Businesses. Businesses continually generate Gold. As you accumulate Gold, you can upgrade your Businesses, which then increases the amount of Gold they produce.
With all the Gold you accumulate, you can purchase and place Furniture in your Mansion to increase your level. This unlocks new Blueprints, which grant you access to even more Businesses. These allow you to expand your empire and upgrade your Businesses at an even quicker clip.
Other unique features of the game include:
Mansion personalisation: Players can personalise their mansion in the game to express their unique character and flair. By decorating their mansion, it also influences their in-game progression, unlocking additional blueprints to build Businesses and generate more Gold.
Dynamic prize pool: The prize pool in Competitive Mode grows dynamically and is updated live throughout the season. Many participants in Competitive Mode will be able earn a piece of the prize pool, but only the best of the best will take home the lion’s share.
Building placement: Instead of predefined placements, players are free to decide where to locate their businesses. This opens up more opportunities for strategic and eagle-eyed players.
Marketplace: Integrated within the game, players can buy and sell Businesses and
Blueprints to their fellow Mane City Tycoons.

What are the interesting upcoming features or events that Loaded Lions: Mane City will be launching?
One of our most anticipated upcoming features is Competitive Mode’s very first season! Everyone’s expertise from mastering the game’s Normal Mode comes into play here. Players will start each Competitive Mode season from scratch. That means Gold, Diamonds, Businesses, and Furniture are not carried over. What’s carried over are your hard-earned Vouchers, Arid Plains land plots, and your land plots from your Crypto.com Land NFTs. This creates as much of a level playing field as possible for all participants.
Competitive Mode features an enticing prize pool, starting at US$100,000 of CRO that is distributed to the top 1,000 players in the Leaderboard. The prize pool grows dynamically and is updated live throughout the season. An incredible 30% of player spending on Diamonds in Competitive Mode will contribute to the growth of the prize pool. Half of this will be added to the current season, and the other half to future seasons. As players climb the ranks, they’ll secure a larger portion of the prize pool, making every position gained all the more rewarding.
Players ranked on the Leaderboard will receive their prizes in the form of Vouchers, which can be spent in-game, redeemed for Diamonds at an exclusive rate or, converted to CRO on-chain.
How has the growth on Cronos been and why did you choose Cronos as the blockchain to launch the game on?
Since the Loaded Lions’s and Cyber Cubs’s migration to the Cronos blockchain in August 2022, Cronos has been the network of choice for Crypto.com’s premier NFT collection.
We are fortunate to have developed the game in collaboration with the Cronos SDK team and with Crypto.com as advisors. They have provided us with invaluable advice throughout the entire development process. Their multi-platform support, scalability, and global reach allowed for a seamless experience in creating the game.
During just the first week of its launch, Loaded Lions: Mane City became one of the top five games by volume, according to DappRadar. None of this would have been possible without our amazing CROFam community. Their dedication and support to building the Loaded Lions: Mane City game with us motivates us to keep innovating and revolutionising the Web3 gaming space.
The journey has just begun, and we are grateful to have amazing partners to continue building with.
For someone who’s interested in Loaded Lions: Mane City, how can they access the game?
There are more than a few ways to access Loaded Lions: Mane City! The first would be to own a Crypto.com Land NFT of any tier, which can be purchased from Crypto.com NFT or Minted. Owning these NFTs will give you a nifty in-game boost. For one, each NFT grants players an additional plot of in-game land to build their city on, but also passively generates more Diamonds. The rarer your Crypto.com Land NFT, the more Business sites your in-game land has, and the higher your passive Diamond generation rate.
Alternatively, link up with an existing Mane City Tycoon to receive a Mane City Access Pass.
