While Enjin’s roots stretch all the way back to 2009, us in the cryptoeconomy recognize it as the gaming platform that raised a ~$19 million initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017 and has been delivering blockchain-based gaming experiences ever since.
The project’s north star? To help anyone easily build games and other digital assets around non-fungible token (NFT) technology. And that’s exactly what Enjin’s been doing lately, as a slew of new games have recently entered the project’s ecosystem.
Canadian game studio Skymarch Entertainment announced today, November 5th, that the startup was integrating NFTs via the Enjin platform into three of its games: Crystals of Fate, The Galaxy of Lemuria, and Zeal.
“We see blockchain technology at the forefront of what is to become mainstream in the future,” Skymarch Entertainment CEO Jonathon McKay said on the news, adding:
“Enjin’s direction toward creating a more scalable, user-friendly blockchain ecosystem solidified our company’s decision to join forces and empower our players with true ownership over their assets.”
The first of these franchises, Crystals of Fate, is a battle-focused digital collectible card game (CCG) that will play familiar to fans of mainstream titles like Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering. Then there’s The Galaxy of Lemuria, a “unique intergalactic MMO Survival RPG with a trading card-based system and a huge procedurally-generated galaxy.” Last up is Zeal, which is a player-vs-player (PVP) role-playing game inspired by World of Warcraft’s popular PvP arenas.
As such, Skymarch Entertainment is now looking to make a name for itself as an NFT pioneer on Enjin, while in kind Enjin will enjoy an acute influx of mainstream-styled games and more contributions from Skymarch’s developers going forward.
