We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with CryptoKitties, the OG of decentralized gaming, to showcase one of the most exciting features the blockchain will add to gaming:
What is interoperability?
Games (more specifically the items within them) have historically been closed silos. This means that your accomplishments and assets in one game can’t be used in another. One of the major benefits that come with storing in-game assets on decentralized ledgers (a.k.a. blockchains) is it means those assets can be utilized across multiple unrelated environments (say, for instance, two different games produced by two different publishers).
What better way to showcase the future than with the world’s favorite digital kittens?
For the next two weeks only, players who own a CryptoKitty will be able to purchase a limited edition card pack (Codename: “The Cat in the Pack”), which will grant the player a unique and tradable talisman that represents their Kitty as a statue in Gods Unchained, in addition to a rare Genesis pack. Each Kitty has the power to forge precisely one talisman, but you’re free to use as many different Kitties as you like.
But that’s not all… Additionally, three Gods Unchained themed cats will be available in CryptoKitties!
From January 10th to January 21st, Tally the Purrocious (a Fancy Cat) will be discoverable in CryptoKitties by breeding a cat with the right combination of traits. If you’re lucky enough to discover one, you can forge it into a custom made, ultra-rare version of the Talisman statue in Gods Unchained.
From January 17th to January 28th (or until supplies sell out), 380 Special-Edition Gods Unchained Aeoncat Kitties will be released for sale.
Every Special Edition Aeoncat Kitty purchased grants players one entry in a draw to win the one-of-a-kind Exclusive Hypurrion Kitty. The Kitty is modeled after Hyperion, our card auctioned in August last year for 146 ETH (US $62,000 at the time).
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this landmark event. If you already have a kitten then go ahead and pick yourself up the limited edition pack! Otherwise, head on over to CryptoKitties website and adopt a kitten!
