Phantasma and Gamevolution are thrilled to announce a strategic partnership to enable developers to easily build and successfully launch blockchain games utilizing the industry’s most innovative technology. Phantasma, a layer one blockchain built by game developers for games, and Gamevolution, an incubator for blockchain games, share a common goal of helping developers overcome the barriers to entry and accelerating the mass adoption of blockchain gaming.
Gamevolution – A Blockchain Incubator for Games
Gamevolution is a blockchain incubator for games founded by Martin Spinetto, former marketing communications director at Microsoft and CEO of Widow Games. Its mission is to share their expertise and network with experienced game developers to help them expand their current and future creations into Web3 blockchain gaming, bringing more value to the most important element: the gamers.
With over a decade of experience creating mobile games focused on quality gameplay and freemium monetization, Gamevolution has gained an in-depth understanding of what works and what doesn’t when integrating blockchain technology. Their conviction is that in the long run, only games built “for gamers and not traders“, using blockchain technology to add features that increase the “fun factor”, will prevail and succeed. Gamevolution is helping their incubated projects raise over $25,000,000 via presales and VC funding.
To guide their companies, Gamevolution has built a strong team of industry experts, advisors and mentors. Among these are Danny Wilson – the co-founder of Illuvium, and Sebastien Borget – the co-founder of The Sandbox and president of the Blockchain Gaming Alliance. Furthermore, it is continuously expanding its ecosystem of tech partners, service providers and Crypto VCs to better support the companies participating in its incubator program. Phantasma is the most recent addition to the Gamevolution team of Platform Partners.
Breaking the Blockchain Gaming Barriers to Entry
Game developers trying to enter the world of Web3 blockchain gaming are met with steep barriers to entry. Complexity, cost, and limitations of first-generation NFTs are some of the biggest obstacles developers must overcome.
Developers looking to integrate their game with blockchain technology can find scattered information all over the web, but there is no definitive guide that contains everything you need to know. That’s where Gamevolution comes in. Rather than waste enormous amounts of time, resources, and money trying to figure it out on their own, game developers can accelerate the process by utilizing Gamevolution’s vast knowledge and resources.
Choosing the right blockchain platform to build a game on is a crucial step. Most platforms only support first-generation NFTs – which are static in nature, expensive to mint, and place limitations on game creativity and functionality. Phantasma’s Smart NFTs are fully programmable and allow for in-game assets that can evolve, upgrade, and change in any way a developer can imagine.
With an abundance of video-game centric blockchain features, lighting-fast transaction speeds, low cost minting-on-demand, and an interoperable infrastructure, Phantasma is bringing an entirely new experience to gamers. Phantasma’s Smart NFT blockchain technology partnered with Gamevolution’s extensive experience and expertise gives game developers all the tools they need to streamline the process of developing and launching their blockchain gaming projects with ease.
