Mysten Labs and BlueJay Games Partner to Launch Web3 Arcade Game on Sui Blockchain
Mysten Labs, a web3 infrastructure company, and BlueJay Games, a leading gaming studio, have joined forces to launch Arcade Champion, a mobile web3 arcade game, on the Sui Layer 1 blockchain. Arcade Champion is a reimagining of classic arcade games that integrates non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and play-to-own elements, making it more appealing to a wider range of players.
The game uses a hero-based system that represents each player’s unique characters with NFTs, which can be upgraded, traded, and fused. These NFTs play a critical role in both solo and dual modes of play, allowing players to accumulate bonuses and coins and attain arcade supremacy.
By leveraging Sui’s cutting-edge technology and functionality, including on-chain object and data storage, NFT-friendly infrastructure, and dynamic user-generated content support, Arcade Champion provides a seamless and immersive gaming experience for players. Additionally, Sui’s Move programming language enables quick and efficient development and execution of smart contracts, making it an ideal platform for game development.
The launch of Arcade Champion on Sui’s mainnet is set to attract a broader audience to web3 gaming by bridging the gap between Web2 and Web3 users. The game’s play-to-own elements and hero-based NFTs will be available to players on the first day of the mainnet launch.
Evan Cheng, Co-Founder, and CEO of Mysten Labs, expressed his excitement at the partnership and said that Arcade Champion’s mix of NFTs and play-to-earn incentives would propel the gaming industry forward. Michel Mailhot, CEO of BlueJay Games, added that Sui’s purpose-built gaming infrastructure, speed, and efficiency would enable them to take advantage of the massive opportunity ahead.
Mysten Labs, founded by senior executives of Meta’s Novi Research and lead architects of the Diem blockchain and Move programming language, aims to create foundational infrastructure for web3. Sui, developed by Mysten Labs, is the first Layer 1 blockchain designed to cater to the next billion users in web3 by offering a general-purpose blockchain with high throughput, instant settlement speeds, rich on-chain assets, and user-friendly web3 experiences.
BlueJay Games, based in Austin, Texas, has over 20 years of experience in the gaming industry and is dedicated to creating innovative and engaging games that appeal to a wide audience.
