ELEET Games to exclusively create games, NFTs, tokens on Tezos
“We are delighted to join the ranks of companies supported by the Tezos Foundation in the gaming space,” said ELEET Games CEO Carsten van Husen. “Becoming a part of the Tezos community and starting to build on the Tezos blockchain provides us — as well as industry powerhouse Ubisoft before — with a joyful playground: scalable, user-friendly, and energy-efficient. Perfect for building fun and fair games which actually possess the potential to drive crypto adoption.”
ELEET Games isn’t just limiting itself to on-chain games as it plans to launch a number of off-chain games to bridge the gap between regular and crypto games. It will focus on gameplay as the priority to allow non-crypto interested players a gateway into the technology, but its implementation will always remain optional to the core gaming experience.
Part of its goal is to lead a new phase of publishing in gaming with a strategy it calls “The Player’s Publisher”, where the company plans to allow players to take part in the decision-making directly as part of its publishing strategy. Players will have the opportunity to influence aspects such as monetization or the next priority feature to develop.
The company currently has two games in development. The first is a high-fantasy MMORPG called Oathbound, where players can enjoy tactical combat and deep character customization while taking part in a player-driven economy with optional crypto integration. The game is currently in closed alpha and will be available on the PC as a free-to-play game.
Its second game is one of its off-chain projects. Might’n Mow’em, a coop multiplayer bullet hell rogue-lite with RPG elements. Players will fight through hordes of monsters to earn persistent character upgrades and find strong but rare temporary items to increase their power. The game has a free demo available on Steam and is planned to be released in 2022 for the PC and Nintendo Switch.
Tezos is an energy-efficient blockchain that allows developers and players to make fast, secure transactions without needing to involve any third parties. The blockchain was built with community governance, eco-friendliness, and easy upgrades in mind, with Tez (XTZ) as its native token to work as a basic accounting unit on the blockchain.
Tezos has partnered with big names such as Manchester United, Ubisoft, Team Vitality and Misfits Gaming to create a blockchain ecosystem that is powerful, sustainable, and accessible to developers.
Mason Edwards, the CCO of Tezos, describes the partnership with ELEET Games as a big opportunity for the Web3 creator economy, saying: “ELEET building exclusively on Tezos arrives at an exciting time of evolution in the gaming industry. Gaming is a keystone for the Tezos ecosystem that has established itself as a home for the Web3 creator economy. I’m excited to see ELEET become part of this community and take a lead in building the next generation of games on Tezos.”
