PlayDapp & GongGames bringing ‘multi-homing’ to competitive sports games
“PlayDapp and Gong Games sign strategic partnership to jointly develop multi-homing sports games”
▶ PlayDapp and Gong Games will introduce a multi-homing based sports game based on the Esamanru Series of Baseball games, combining skill play and blockchain technology.
▶ A joint game development plan using blockchain technology… to implement user-oriented multi-homing game service.
[2022.01.13] PlayDapp will work strategically with Gong Games to target the multi-homing game market using sports games.
Blockchain service platform PlayDapp (CEO Brian Choi) announced on the 13th that it has signed a strategic partnership with Gong Games (CEO Gong Du-sang), a prestigious baseball game company.
Through this contract, the two companies plan to jointly develop ‘Multi-homing’ games that combine blockchain technology with the sports game genre and release them globally.
‘Multi-homing game’ is a new word that combines ‘multi-homing’ and ‘game’, a phenomenon in which people easily move and use various platforms. It refers to a game that can utilize the gamer’s usage records in other games, metaverses, and blockchain platforms by incorporating blockchain technology.
When NFT (Non-Fungible Token) technology is applied to general games, users can take ownership of items such as game items or characters. Due to the technical characteristics of the blockchain, gamers can freely experience advanced multi-homing games centered on users by freely transferring game usage records recorded on NFT from NFT trading platforms, metaverse, and games.
Gong Games is a sports game studio that has been dedicated to developing professional baseball games for the past 10 years. Representative works include the ‘Esamanru’ series and ‘MLB Perfect Inning’ series, which have established themselves as national baseball games with a cumulative lifetime download of over 12 million.
PlayDapp provides a blockchain technology-based NFT marketplace and provides a diverse game portfolio that gamers can enjoy with NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Recently, through the commercialization of the PlayDapp SDK (Software Development Kit), it is taking the lead in providing technical support such as blockchain gamification to domestic and foreign game developers who want to build blockchain infrastructure.
Park Kyung-soo, director of Gong Games, said, “Through this partnership with PlayDapp, which leads the NFT platform market, we will show a more advanced version of the Isamanru series and strive to create a new paradigm in the sports game market.”
PlayDapp’s leading knowledge in the blockchain sphere is soon to be applied to the sport genre.
Sang Chung, Head of PlayDapp Business said: “I am delighted to be able to present a multi-homing game that incorporates blockchain technology together with Gong Games, which possesses unrivaled technology in the sports game genre.” We will mobilize all our technological power to introduce games optimized for multi-homing as soon as possible.
