TRON Arcade, TRON’s 100 million USD game fund, announces a new game: HyperSnakes.
Developed by MixMarvel, the acclaimed studio behind top ETH game HyperDragons, HyperSnakes introduces new abilities and battle royale mechanics to classic Slither.io gameplay. Players can compete with each other for free (and earn cryptocurrency for their participation), or raise the stakes by adding their own TRX (TRON’s native coin) to the prize pool.
As the first global, real-time multiplayer blockchain game, HyperSnakes is a breakthrough for the industry in terms of game quality and technological infrastructure. A free-to-play model where anyone can play and earn, with or without a wallet, removes the usual entry barriers found in blockchain games. The addictive gameplay and reward system can stand on their own to attract mainstream audiences and create wider adoption for crypto and blockchain.
Together, MixMarvel & TRON Arcade are trailblazing the next generation of gaming, where players are rewarded for their significant contributions to the gaming ecosystem.
Pre-register for exclusive rewards here. The beta launches on March 1st. Stay tuned for more updates!
HyperSnake’s core gameplay is similar to its predecessor. Control your snake avatar, collect dots to grow longer, and defeat other players to become the longest snake in the arena. The mechanics are easy to pick up and offer enough depth to keep players entertained.
MixMarvel is upping the ante by adding several features to shake things up. Snakes can now acquire abilities like shielding, EMPs, speed boosts, and more. Use them wisely to get an edge on the competition!
As the game progresses, the play zone shrinks to facilitate interaction between the players and put their skills to the test. Some players will play defensively as they try to stay alive in cramped corridors, and others will aggressively attempt to capture airdrops that contain valuable resources and cryptocurrency rewards.
TRON Arcade’s Progress
TRON Arcade is dedicated to bringing power back to the players by funding and publishing high-quality games in the blockchain space.
Since November 29th, 2018, TRON Arcade has published titles like TronGoo, EpicDragons, Blockchain Cuties, etc. which have become the most popular decentralized applications across all blockchains, according to DappRadar. In January 2019, transaction volume on TRON’s DApps significantly outpaced those on ETH and EOS.
Quality games from talented development teams have found their way to TRON for the platforms usability and TRON Arcade’s extensive support.
The first wave of development activity was made up of teams migrating from Ethereum. TRON’s compatibility with Solidity allowed developers to quickly convert their code. With the help of intuitive developer tools like TronLink and TronGrid, most developers were able to port their game to TRON within a couple of weeks if not days. Now, developers are leveraging TRON’s speed & scalability, like TRON’s 3-second block time, to create better gaming experiences.
TRON Arcade’s success can also be attributed to key strategic partnerships with important players in the space, like gumi Cryptos, Mars Finance, and Cocos-BCX. Working with these leaders in both traditional and blockchain gaming, TRON Arcade continues to identify and support the best developers in the space.
More games are currently in development and will continue to be released throughout the year. Highlights from this group include: 0xWarriors, from award-winning team 0xGames; TRON RAIDER, from INFUN (former Tencent & Ubisoft); HyperDragons, from MixMarvel; LORDLESS & CryptoDungeons, top ETH titles.
TRON & MixMarvel are determined to bring high production value and deep gameplay to gamers and blockchain enthusiasts alike. Blockchain gaming is an opportunity to transform the misaligned incentives of traditional game economies, introduce fairer monetization practices, provide players with true ownership of in-game assets, and so much more.
MixMarvel CEO Jade Zhang says, “Blockchain gaming has limitless potential, but the space currently lacks a game that will lead to mass adoption. With HyperSnakes’ polished graphics, smooth user on-boarding experience, and real-time PvP gameplay, MixMarvel & TRON Arcade hope to inspire new blockchain gaming experiences that bridge blockchain and mainstream gaming.”
TRON Foundation CEO Justin Sun says “Blockchain gaming is starting to attract serious talent, like MixMarvel’s development team. It seems like more and more developers are recognizing the potential audience they can find in blockchain, including the over 100 million active users on BitTorrent and TRON.”
The GDC Event
On March 19th, during the week of GDC, TRON will be hosting a blockchain gaming mini-summit in association with Cocos-BCX. The half-day event, running from 1pm to 7:30 pm is free to attend and will provide a focused space for blockchain game developers, platforms, tool-makers, investors, press, and others interested in the space to discuss key issues, trends, and opportunities in a relaxed setting.
