To this end, the company will release a series of blockchain games over the coming 18 months, with 11 games already in progress. Indeed, the company’s first game Midgard Saga is slated for release in September 2022. Midgard Saga is a casual card-based RPG that follows the adventures of a prince to save his fallen kingdom.
Players will encounter heroes of various backgrounds, which they can then recruit and deploy in battles. Its idle gameplay makes it perfect for players who enjoy a real-time combat strategy game that’s light on battle mechanics.
Speaking on the development, co-founder and COO of Yeeha Games Choy Wai Cheong (Choy) said although there has been significant growth of the GameFi industry, there is still a lot more room for growth, and only high-quality games can make the industry compete with the traditional gaming market.
“The GameFi industry saw incredible growth in 2021,” Choy Wai Cheong (Choy) said. “But when compared to the traditional gaming market, we still see a massive untapped potential. To attract traditional gamers to web3, we must have games that appeal to them. 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,” he added.
Yeeha Games is a gaming company that offers a wide range of quality games through its ecosystem with the support of Bybit. It also has a marketplace where users can trade in-game assets. Yeeha is backed by a strong team of over 90 industry veterans from the blockchain industry, GameFi, and traditional gaming sectors, including Bybit, Tencent, NetEase, IGG, Animoca Brands, Unity, and TapTap.
The company focuses on releasing high-quality, excellent, free-to-play, excellent all-around games. With this, it is set to improve the quality of blockchain gaming and shape it positively for future exploits. With its free-to-play games, traditional gamers can quickly enter the web3 space without having to buy cryptocurrencies initially until they have experienced and enjoyed the game.
Game genres to be introduced to the ecosystem include MMORPG, SLG, open world, simulation, idle RPG card games and many others. This is to meet the gaming needs of all the gamers in the ecosystem. Yeeha’s built-in wallet that supports both fiat and crypto deposits will also help gamers transition from traditional to web3 gaming by allowing them to make gas-free transactions.
