Recently, a group of expert game developers got together and founded Mythical Games. Inspired by the democratic philosophy that underlies the DGaming Industry, Mythical Games decide to offer its stellar expertise to the industry that appreciates digital ownership, open market, and decentralization.
The $16 Million Funding
The tech startup Mythical Games raised $16 million through Series A funding. Most of the funds came from 5 big venture capital (VC) names, including Galaxy Digital's EOS and OKCoin.
Mythical Games will use the money to develop games for all platforms (PC, console and mobile). The games will be decentralized, with emphasis on the player-based economy, digital ownership and user-made content.
Mike Novogratz, the CEO of Galaxy Digital, said, "Games that feature community interaction, player engagement and digital ownership will change the way mainstream perceives the blockchain. There’s no doubt that Mythical Games will play a critical role in this mission."
On EOS And Blankos Block Party
Because Galaxy Digital EOS VC led the $16 million in funding, Mythical Games will create their games on EOS blockchain. To those that don't know, EOS is a user-friendly blockchain that enables users to create Decentralized Applications (DApps) at scale.
At the time of the Series A funding, Mythical Games didn't disclose what type of games they intend to make. However, 3 days ago they released a teaser trailer for their first game, Blankos Block Party. This Multiplayer game is set to be released in 2019.
While it's impossible to tell the details of the game, it's reasonable to assume that Blankos Block Party will deliver unique and comical gameplay. And judging by the game's trailer, it'll be very entertaining! Mythical Games encourages users to sign up now to receive free unique rewards.
