Gameplay in HELIX revolves around a single character created by the player at the beginning of the game. Every character starts with a basic amount of tokens and a basic apartment. The player can participate in various activities and earn tokens, which can be used to customize and expand their character further (i.e. buying items, vehicles, weapons, apartments).
HELIX is a natively social multiplayer experience. Players can play various competitive game modes together or simply hang out in lounges or bars throughout the city, meeting new groups of friends.
Parallel City, a massive open-world virtual city inspired by real-life New York City, serves as the main "lobby" or "hub" in which players can freely roam around and travel to different areas to enter different multiplayer experiences.


  • Meet new people in the city or in lounges
  • Walk, drive, fly around the city
  • Buy, sell, trade items
  • Create, mint new items
  • Play game modes (and earn money)
  • Buy and develop on land plots


Besides exploring the city and hanging out with others, players can also participate in PvP game modes and earn tokens. We're planning to release two game modes upon initial launch, with more game modes being introduced over time.
Game modes available upon launch:
  • Treasure Hunt
  • Battle Royale
Additional game modes to be released post-launch:
  • Survival
  • Deathmatch
  • More..


HELIX revolves around the concept of NFT-based digital items which players can buy, sell, or trade in an open, decentralized exchange called HeX (HELIX eXchange). There are multiple categories/sub-categories, organized by wearables, vehicles, properties, etc. To see the full list of available item types, see here.
