The serial entrepreneur and software developer Robert Greig, Josh Jones, a marketing strategist, and Ant Renics, a system analyst, founded the Cornucopias. Frederic Chesnais, the former CEO of Atari, is the advisor of it.
The project runs on the Cardano blockchain, one reason why the team partnered with Lovelace, a Cardano blockchain metaverse service. Other project partners include GeroWallet and VyFinance.
The game takes place on an island where players own the lands. The island map is divided into the Wild West, Farm Life, and Age of Samurai zones. These zones are split further into neighborhoods and land plots that players can finally acquire.
Each player starts the game with two free beginning characters. There are both single-player and multiplayer modes.
The gameplay consists of many mini-games. Players participate in them to earn rewards while exploring different zones. These rewards may include NFT items, in-game tokens, or experience points.
There are two primary categories to earn playing Cornucopias “Island.” The first includes a “build to earn” model, and the second is based on a “learn to earn model.”
Build to earn feature allows gamers to create their own game assets. They can, for example, build tables, beds, or other items for their houses on the island and mint them as NFTs to sell them to other players in the marketplace.
The learn-to-earn model makes it possible to participate in educational content inside the mini-games and get rewarded.
Apart from these two aspects, the game economy will also depend on the location of the lands. For instance, landowners can lease lands to farmers in the Farm Life zone.

The players will gain rewards in in-game coins. They can be transferred to the project’s native on-chain utility token COPI.
You can use COPI to pay for in-game activities. The include boosting energy or upgrading character accessories.
