Aethia, a simulation world of Tamagotchi meets Pokemon on the Ethereum blockchain (called Ethergotchi) is launching its third egg type, called Omega Egg. An Ethergotchi gets hatched from an egg that would be ready to enter the World of Aethia. The Omega Egg has a random star alignment. Star alignment, somewhat similar to a star sign, affects the growth rate of base attributes. An Ethergotchi has 5 base attributes.
The Aethia game will have a total of 15 possible star alignments. Unlike the Alpha Egg, which has a unique Star Alignment, the Omega Egg will have a random star alignment.

After the overwhelming success of CryptoKitties, there are several new projects looking to create a more immersive game with more complex features and role-playing. Although there is precedence in the gaming world around highly complex game worlds, they are fairly new on the blockchain. Aethia is one of those games, which is launching an alpha soon. The team has an elaborate design in place for the game world. Aethia is built using Ethereum blockchain.
The advantage of the blockchain is that players truly are in control of the game assets that they purchase, and not the game developer or publisher. This prevents the game developers from abusing their power of making changes against the community wishes. If they do, the players can fork into an alternative version while still retaining their in-game items they purchased.
The Omega Egg will be available for purchase on the Aethia website starting Feb 12, 2018, 12:00:00 UTC. The price for the Omega Egg will be 0.09 ETH. A free toy is included with the purchase. In-game items like toys are used in the Aethia world to improve the attributes of an Ethergotchi, and can be purchased from in-game stores with CHI. CHI is the native currency of the Aethia World, and will be given for free to Ethergotchi inside the game world per month, so the game is free for players to play.
The Omega Egg marks the third egg type that has been released by the Aethia team. The other two are a Referral Egg and an Alpha Egg. The Alpha Egg has been sold out, but players can still get a Referral Egg by inviting at least 3 of their friends to the game, who sign up. If you plan to join Aethia, you can use my referral link.
The Aethia team has big plans for the game, and its design provides for a flexible structure that enables easy expansion of many features. This should keep the fans hooked for longer periods of time.
