Kongregate Unveils Next Blockchain Game Blood Vessels | Pocket Gamer.biz
Web-turned-mobile game publisher Kongregate has unveiled its next blockchain game, Blood Vessels.
The game will launch through a partnership with Immutable X and will feature playable Vampire NFTs that will be available for purchase in Q2 2022 when the NFTs drop.
Development on Blood Vessels was led by Kongregate’s newly formed blockchain-focused development team, Electric Visions.
The announcement follows the company’s recent appointment of three key personnel to help its blockchain operations.
“Blurs the line between play and community”
Michelle Shaw, Head of Blockchain Operations at Kongregate, said, “Not only was the game a passion project created by our team during COVID to stay connected, but it also blurs the line between game and community, giving players control of their own experience in a way that has never been done before.”
Max Murphy, Kongregate’s Chief Technology Officer, added, “It’s an incredibly exciting time to be a developer, working with forward-thinking green partners like ImmutableX who ensure our NFTs are scalable, secure, fully transparent and, most importantly, gas free and carbon neutral.”
The number of mobile game publishers entering the growing blockchain space has steadily increased. Earlier this week, Japanese mobile game company WonderPlanet revealed that it had created a new Singapore-based subsidiary to run its blockchain and NFT operations.
