Animoca Brands is bringing their popular mobile game series Star Girl to the Flow blockchain in 2021. Alongside the game aimed at young girls, the gaming company will also bring F1 Delta Time and MotoGP to the upcoming blockchain from Dapper Labs. The deal is a first step in a deeper partnership between the two companies.
Especially the announcement of Star Girl comes as a surprise, because one million users per month already play these mobile games. Star Girl will introduce a whole new audience to blockchain technology, giving its players ownership over in-game assets.
The Star Girl has portfolio has nine different games on iOS and Android. In these games players get to live the life of an aspiring fashion model, join in Christmas celebrations or dress their avatar up like a princess. All these games are based on themes like fashion and celebrities. The series has over 1.7 million followers on Facebook as well.
“Once launched, we expect the popularity of Star Girl to open up a new dimension to crypto’s appeal, exponentially expanding the kinds of apps and experiences that can be commercially viable.”Mik Naayem, co-founder Dapper Labs – blog post
What about those racing games?
Alongside Star Girl we will also see F1 Delta Time and MotoGP on the Flow blockchain. MotoGP isn’t out yet, but the Formula 1 racing game is already available on Ethereum. Both games will use the REVV token as part of their in-game economy. It’s very likely that Animoca Brands will create a bridge between the Ethereum and Flow versions of these racing games, which would expand the market for the REVV token and its economy.
Currently MotoGP is expected to be available in some extend by the end of this year. However, a fully playable game is scheduled for a 2021 release. So far we haven’t seen any in-game footage of the game yet. At the same time we also don’t know when any of these racing games will be available on Flow.
Animoca Brands is arguably one of the biggest gaming companies in the blockchain gaming space. They are the company behind The Sandbox and F1 Delta Time. In addition they’ve invested in companies like Dapper Labs and many others.
With $7.34 million dollars in the first four months of this year, Animoca Brands is not a gaming giant yet. But the innovating firm is clearly moving upwards. In 2018 the company noted 14.88 million dollars in revenue over the entire year.
