Casual gaming company Gamee is stepping into the blockchain gaming space by creating NFT characters and introducing a cryptocurrency across their portfolio. Over 20 million registered users already regularly enjoy the approachable HTML5 web games by Gamee, and they will soon be able to create value from their play time.
Gamee is a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, and therefore the link with blockchain gaming is easily made. Right now gamers already earn tickets, which allows them to join in raffles. However, Gamee tokens and collectible robots is where it’s really at.
Players will be able to earn GAMEE through gameplay, by completing missions or winning challenges. They can then use the token to join in skill-based tournaments, acquire gameplay rewards or upgrade their digital collectibles.
The digital collectible we’re talking about is a robot that consists out of several add-ons. The robot has a head, torso, arms, bottom and add-ons like guns, tools and mascots. Each part is a separate non-fungible token and brings certain powers to the robot, influencing its rarity and therefore value. These robots can eat GAMEE tokens to upgrade their powers and stats.
The robot gives players all kinds of boosts. Gamers can receive more rewards from their challenges and missions, and they get access to special game missions as well. In addition Animoca and Gamee are planning a dedicated robot fighting game. Gamee is planning to launch a pre-sale for their GAMEE token soon.
