The Services are offered, are intended for and are only lawfully available to users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older. By accessing or using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are eighteen (18) and of legal age to form a binding contract with NIFTY. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Services.
NIFTY enables users to import an array of 3D objects, 2D images, custom avatars, wearables, and audio files (each, an “Asset” and collectively, the “Assets”), which can then be used on and to interact with the Services. NIFTY further enables users to mint NFTs, play as an NFT, import their NFT collection and purchase new 3D, metaverse-ready NFTs from our NIFTY Loot collection and marketplace. These, for example, architectural NFTs, skins, wearables, and/or weapons can be used to decorate your Island. You can also earn new items for your Island by completing quests (each, a “Game”), and socialize with other players via voice and text chat.
The Forge is an NFT minting dapp that enables users to easily create game-ready NFTs. Users can select from a set of NFT categories they wish to create (e.g., an in-game island, an in-game object, or in-game 2D art). Within each NFT category are subcategories (e.g., in-game objects > furniture > table) with templates available for users to ensure their NFT creations work well in our 3D virtual environment. Once a user uploads their files (accepted types: .glb, .gltf, .fbx for objects), their creations are immediately usable inside of the Nifty Island game. Users can also upload their creations onto NIFTY, NIFTY’s marketplace, and define the NFT metadata along a set of predetermined parameters to mint the creation from your EVM-compatible wallet. Once NFTs are uploaded onto the NIFTY marketplace, NFTs can be viewed, listed for sale, and traded with other users. Use of, and interaction with, the Forge may be subject to further terms and conditions available at Forge.
