Which game stands out from the competition?

Since its initial launch on October 1st 2019, the contest attracted a lot of developers, and we had over 50 entries for the event. The contest not only attracted blockchain developers, but also drew the attention of traditional developers with limited background in developing DApps. The contest gathered developers around the world to accomplish the mission of bridging the gap between the traditional gaming market and the blockchain gaming market.

Thanks to the many outstanding contestants in this competition, and also congratulations to the following three teams for standing out from the 11 candidates and winning the final prize.

Block Pirate:

Block Pirate is the first DApp game combining tower defense and TCG in the world. It was developed by the Block Kingdom, a blockchain game development team in North America. In Block Pirate, each player is the lord of an island in Archipelago. Players fight for Block Crystal with their troop cards and tower defense strategy in the PvP battle.

DemonTap:

Developed by the winning team of the NEO Game Development Competition, DemonTap is a clicker crypto game with blockchain features such as a cool experience, a deep development system, a trading market, and asset confirmation.

BarryMax:

Designed by the students from Northeastern University, BarryMax brings the Magic world into the blockchain world. With its original design and gameplay, it brings the players into the world of the Barry. Barry was born from nothingness, he is weak and helpless, the law of the jungle in the monster’s world made him eager to get stronger since he has a unique ability that his body changes by the object he absorbs. Players collect nature elements for Barry to learn from famous monsters how to be stronger, then make Barry evolve by receiving the key item.

In addition, there are also various mind-blowing entries, such as Win7.io, which will continuously help the Egretia community to become a better community.

Egretia (http://egretia.io/) aims to combine HTML5 — a programming language for structuring and presenting content online — with blockchain to create the world’s first HTML5 blockchain game ecosystem. Currently, users of HTML5 games already account for 47% of all mobile gamers. Egretia’s new technology could increase the popularity of blockchain apps.

“The key secret to living your life is to understand what is a game and what is not a game,” said General Partner of Gumi Cryptos Miko Matsumura. “We are standing at the beginning of the blockchain game industry.”

After three months of efforts, Egretia’s global DApp competition does not only bring Egretia to a broader stage, but it also brings blockchain gaming to a grander market, attracting more fresh blood into the Egretia global gaming ecosystem.
