What’s been built so far?


MAD Metascientists is a game that lets players create and evolve biodigital superorganisms in a post-singularity meta-universe. Players can mint one of the 10,000 unique MAD Metascientists, who are the origin of all species in the MAD ecosystem. These Metascientists can evolve their traits and skills by using Biometa, a scarce resource that can be obtained from the Ethereum blockchain or from external NFTs. The game also features an interactive minting experience and a unique lab, where players can shape and develop their Metascientists and their creations. The game offers multiple income streams for players, such as Biometa, in-game NFT items, and customizable NFTs that can be traded in the marketplace. MAD Metascientists is a dynamic and immersive game that gives players the power to become god-like architects in the MAD Metaverse.

The Lab Protocol

The Lab is a platform for MAD NFT owners to create and evolve artificial life using their Metascientists and Metacells. It is also a central hub for accessing the MAD Ecosystem, which includes new games, in-game tokens, marketplace, and community. Early adopters can join the alpha testing of The Lab and explore various features that allow them to merge, boost, and customize their digital assets. Owning a MAD NFT also grants users many benefits, such as weekly payouts, discounts, and exclusive access to other projects. The Lab is the ultimate destination for anyone interested in the MAD Metaverse.

Host Protocol

The Host Protocol is a feature that allows players to mutate their third-party NFTs, such as CryptoPunks or Bored Apes, by introducing them to their Metacells. This triggers a Chain Reaction, which creates a new NFT with traits from both the host and the Metacell, as well as a NanoCell, a smaller version of the Metacell. The host protocol also affects the evolution of the Metacell, giving it new characteristics and abilities. Players can monitor the evolution of their Cells and compare them with others in the marketplace, using the Evolutionary Diagnostic in the Lab. The host protocol is a way for players to customize and enhance their NFTs in the MAD Metaverse.

Nano Wars

Nano Wars is the first game MAD developed, and focuses directly on asset evolution, introducing a PvP battle game for Metascientists to earn Biometa and enhance their Nanocell attributes and skills. As users evolve their NFTs in the Lab they develop a unique set of attributes that determine their skills such as speed, power, energy and other special abilities. A Nanocells’ skills can be enhanced through engaging in battles and feeding them Biometa. As your Nanocells skills develop, so too does their rarity, uniqueness and their ability to win battles, providing their owners with an increasingly valuable asset for generating Biometa and increasing it’s market value.

What’s in development?


MAD is developing an RTS game that combines the features of a real strategy game with the mechanics of evolution and mutation. Players can use their MAD Metascientists and Metacells, which are dynamic NFTs that evolve over time, to compete and cooperate with other players in a post-singularity meta-universe. Players can collect and manage their Biometa to build and upgrade their bases, units, and structures. Players can also influence the evolution and skills of their NFTs by using Biometa. Players can control their units indirectly, using mouse and keyboard commands, and assign them to different roles and groups. Players can also access a complex user interface that shows them various information and options related to the game state. MAD RTS is a dynamic and immersive game that allows players to create and evolve artificial life in the MAD Metaverse.
