Blockchain gaming has ushered in a new age for the gaming industry. Opportunities are at an all-time high as countless Play-to-Earn games have seen relative success within the space. Gaming has become more than just a throwaway hobby, granting gamers a way to capitalize on their feverish passion for video games. As such, Yeeha Games hopes to push the boundaries of the industry, making a dynamic entry in Web3 gaming as one of the biggest GameFi platforms to ever come around.
Yeeha Games is a $50 million-funded GameFi platform backed by leading cryptocurrency exchange Bybit. The emerging power player sets its sights on crafting high-quality gaming experiences that offer prospective utilities in the form of an NFT marketplace. Yeeha Games is scheduled to release its first-ever title, “Midgard Saga,” in September 2022. Over the next 18 months, the company has announced that it will unveil numerous blockchain games, with 11 games already in the pipeline.
Yeeha Games is well-equipped with a global team of experts, with industry authorities such as Animoca Brands joining the fray. Supported by a powerhouse team of over 90 experts, the massive GameFi company is poised to rise through the ranks of the Blockchain gaming industry.
“The GameFi industry saw incredible growth in 2021,” said Choy Wai Cheong, co-founder and COO of Yeeha Games. “But when compared to the traditional gaming market, we still see a massive untapped potential,” he added.
With hopes of attracting traditional gamers to the web3 space, Yeeha Games is creating gaming experiences that will appeal to the general gaming public. “Blockchain or not, games have to be fun to attract and retain players in the long run. Integrating blockchain elements into game genres with proven success in the traditional gaming market is a good starting point, and that’s where Yeeha Games is positioned,” explained Choy.
Members of the Yeeha Games global team include notable gaming mainstays such as Tencent, NetEase, IGG, Unity, and TapTap. The company is on a mission to bridge the traditional gaming scene and Web3 gaming, aiming to develop free-to-play games which will make the transition as seamless and enjoyable as possible. In line with the company’s goals, traditional gamers will not need to build prerequisite experience in crypto or NFTs to start playing.
Yeeha Games is scheduled to release games that span various video game genres such as MMORPGs, SLGs, Open World Gaming, Simulations, and Idle RPG Card Games. As for its marketplace, it has a built-in wallet that supports both fiat and crypto deposits. Players can make transactions gas-free across all game titles on its platform as an added bonus.
Yeeha Games’ first title, “Midgard Saga,” is a casual RPG card game that will jumpstart the company’s ecosystem. The story follows the adventures of a noble prince who aims to avenge his fallen kingdom. Players will encounter other heroes from different backgrounds, each with a unique storyline. These heroes can be recruited and deployed in battles, similar to traditional RPG games.
“We are excited about the future of GameFi, and how it could realize the promise of the metaverse and internet through gaming,” said Ben Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Bybit. “Other than creating a level playing field, GameFi has the potential to connect people across global communities to build up our digital and virtual worlds. Additionally, it promotes the ideology of putting power back in the hands of the people with a player-owned economy. Through this partnership, we want to demonstrate our commitment to driving technology innovations to the wider society.”
