Nassau, Bahamas, August 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fast-growing video game developer Fancy Studios is on a quest to revolutionize the industry, developing its own suite of hyper-casual mobile games and partnering with key companies to launch “web3 ” titles that give players more involvement and ownership.
The company’s tagline is “Creating fun blockchain games,” and it’s already off to a fast start, having raised $12.5 million with a team of over 50. They’ve already produced a full title with four others. games in development Its founders aim to position Fancy Studios as one of the leading and most innovative game studios for web3, a next-generation decentralized internet that aims to give people greater control over their data and true ownership of their assets. .
“We make fun, community-focused, player-centric games,” says Paul Taylor, director of strategy at Fancy Studios. “We wanted to turn the traditional gaming model on its head by using blockchain technology. Instead of the “you have nothing” model, where you buy an in-game item or spend many hours leveling up your character but actually have nothing, we want our games to be “you have it all.” ”
In traditional games, players often spend many hours fighting to increase their characters’ levels, obtain items (which can also cost real money), and develop their own identity as they progress through the game. Players do all of this while having a lot of fun. All of that sounds great, right? Well, after a player leaves the game, he loses all of that, countless hours and money, it instantly disappears. This is the “you got nothing” format that players are used to today.
With crypto games, players actually own self your characters and game assets. You can buy, sell and trade everything you spend your time and money on with other players. Fancy Studios believes that this will allow their users to develop a deeper connection with their games and also allow them to recoup (and in some cases, even benefit from) the time and money spent. Taylor, having spent thousands of hours playing games like RuneScape, League of Legends, and Guild Wars, thinks this will resonate with gamers, both casual and competitive.
The company was founded less than a year ago, but its first title, “Fancy Birds,” based on the viral game Flappy Birds but with unique twists including tournaments and breeding, proved to be a quick hit, with its dedicated gaming community jumping on the bandwagon. less than 1,000 members. last October to more than 100,000 players in June.
“We are one of the first crypto game companies that can already boast a full launch game. Most of the crypto game studios are still in early development or have only released trailers so far. We told our community from day 1 that we would produce a high-quality game quickly, and we’ve delivered on that promise. Fancy Birds was our first full proof of concept and now we’re really ramping up with several more planned to launch this year,” says Taylor.
Fancy Studios plans to make a diverse portfolio of games available on all mobile devices, including Android and iPhone, with the ability to play on desktop and tablet as well. These games will cover all kinds of popular genres and are designed to be simple and fun.
One of the main reasons for Fancy Studios’ rapid growth is the importance it places on engaging with its community, through the company’s blog, Twitter, Discord, which is updated regularly, and the AMA (ask me anything) live. Their players regularly discuss ways to improve the game experience and often get sneak peeks at future game developments and features.
Furthermore, Fancy Birds is a “play and win” game, which means that its players can earn cryptocurrency tokens by completing missions in the game. Cryptocurrency can also be exchanged for real life money. “We are very proud of the many success stories we have been able to create by allowing our players to earn money simply by playing Fancy Birds. In particular, we have a very large presence in the Philippines, where the minimum wage is incredibly low. We have seen many people in developing countries earn significantly more by playing our game for an hour a day instead of working full time from home. For some, it has been a life-changing income, and it has been very rewarding for us to see that.”
Web3 allows Fancy Studios to give players the opportunity to use valuable non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as their characters and in-game items that they actually own. “Community ownership is one of the many unique aspects that set us apart as a leader in the gaming revolution. Players have a stake in the game and really own a piece of the project,” says Taylor. “We also allow our token holders to vote on key decisions to ensure their voice is heard fairly and transparently. In fact, recently, the community chose the title for our second game.”
That forward-thinking approach to gaming has helped Fancy Studios secure strategic investments and partnerships with a wide range of notable industry leaders, including Framework Ventures, Illuvium, Polygon Studios, Merit Circle, Yield Guild Games, Polemos, BreedFi , PathDAO, YGG SEA, Loot Squad, The Juice Team, IndiGG, SNACKCLUB, GameFi Squad, AMG DAO, BAYZ and others. They have also been in discussions with several leading traditional game studios about incorporating web3 elements into their current and future games.
“Fancy Studios intends to become the premier web3 game studio developing innovative games designed for maximum fun and community engagement,” says Taylor.
