Neo Global Development has introduced Quirky Soul College into the Neo EcoBoost program. QSC is a story-driven NFT game featuring a collection of 10,000 unique NFTs called Quirky Souls, which allow their owners to join the College, level up, and participate in the evolving story.

QSC was founded by Michael Fabozzi, the creator of NFT-lending pioneer Rentfuse, an award-winning project in the 2021 Neo Launchpad hackathon. QSC was built to explore new ways to engage with digital collectibles and the potentials of blockchain technology.

Mechanics for the game center on the Quirky Soul character NFTs, which are minted with randomly generated traits to determine character appearance and rarity. Each character has a set of attributes which can be enhanced by sending them on ventures. Successful ventures are rewarded with Fresh Dark Elixir (FDE), a NEP-17 token that can be spent to facilitate various in-game actions.

In the announcement, Fabozzi offered praise for Neo as a development platform:  “From a technology standpoint, Neo N3 is incredible. It offers a huge developer toolset for easily creating smart contracts.”

John Wang, Neo’s Director of Eco Growth, emphasized the role of NFTs in representing decentralized identities. Reiterating Neo’s commitment to NFT projects, Wang noted, “The collaboration with QSC aligns with our vision of the digital future.”
