Ryu Games today announced the newest batch of games it’s adding to Flame, an emerging Web3 games store and marketplace. Starting today, Ultimate Battle Arena, a Play2Earn trading card game with auto-battle and a rich in-game economy, and Minionverse, a mashup tower defense and trading card game, are available to download from the Flame platform. Both Ultimate Battle Arena and Minionverse are wildly popular Web3 games. Flame is a multi-chain wallet, store and launcher of PC games that users onboard through a simple social login that is currently in beta with plans to expand access later this year.
Ross Krasner, CEO of Ryu Games, said: “The market potential for Web3 games is tremendous, but millions of players face heavy friction in simply onboarding to play games powered by NFTs and crypto. With Flame, we set out to better serve the PC gaming market with easily usable NFTs and cryptocurrencies and streamline the onboarding experience. We’re thrilled to reveal our partnership with Ulti Arena to bring on their titles Ultimate Battle Arena and Minionverse. We’ve received tons of interest from blockchain game developers and will be announcing many more new titles to join the Flame platform soon.”
Duke Vu, CEO of Ulti Arena, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with the Flame team to bring our games, Ultimate Battle Arena and Minionverse, to millions of potential players who haven’t yet played Web3 games built around NFTs and open economies. Flame is making it easier and more intuitive for players to access our game and we look forward to the response from players on Flame.”
Today’s news comes on the heels of Flame’s initial reveal in early June, which also highlighted Splinterlands and Pegaxy as the first games to come to the platform and that the founder of Steam, Rick Ellis, was joining Ryu Games as Chief Product Officer to leverage his decades long experience in console, PC and mobile gaming development to drive the growth of Web3 adoption in gaming on Flame.
