Casual gaming platform Gamee will launch the presale of their G-Bots NFTs on November 2nd. These first edition G-Bots will have a supply of only one thousand NFTs, and participants will need GMEE tokens to acquire them. Users can pre-register for the sale now on the official website.
G-Bots exist on the Polygon blockchain, and they add an exciting layer to the Gamee platform. Users can use their G-Bots for staking missions, and earn GMEE in return. In the future players can also upgrade their bots using Energy Tokens (ETs), or breed a new Baby Bot by combing two existing ones. However, from a gameplay perspective the turn-based arena game is probably the most interesting aspect.
The robot, an ERC-721 token, has a head, torso, arms, bottom and add-ons like guns, tools and mascots. Each part brings certain powers to the robot, influencing its rarity and therefore value. The G-Bot NFTs are just the first step, as these robots will also get their own universe. Players can own land here.
Eventually, the G-Bots Metaverse will have decentralized ownership, starting from G-Bots game characters and continuing to various game-related real estate, whose owners will shape the future and experience of the game.
Animoca growing the Gamee brand
Animoca Brands acquired Gamee last year. The casual mobile gaming platform has seen considerable success with 20 million registered users. With the help of blockchain-focused Animoca, the casual gaming platform is moving towards a crypto-powered play-to-earn experience. Players can earn GMEE tokens through gameplay, by completing missions and winning challenges.
GMEE is another example of Animoca Brands rebuilding existing businesses and adding blockchain elements to them. We’re also seeing this with their in-house Crazy Kings and Crazy Defense Heroes mobile games. These free-to-play games are now getting new play-to-earn mechanics, allowing gamers to earn TOWER tokens.
If Gamee turns out to be a success, the industry will have a blueprint on how to rebuild a casual gaming website into a much more valuable platform with a highly engaged audience.
