Magmic to Announce ‘First-of-Its Kind’ Web3 Mobile Game While at GDC

NEW YORK & OTTAWA, Ontario, February 1, 2024 – Award-winning, Ottawa based mobile game developer-publisher, Magmic announced today that the company will announce a ‘first-of-its kind’ Web3 mobile game during an invitation only cocktail party on March 19, 2024, while at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, CA.

An established leader in the Web3 videogame space, Magmic secured an official partnership and license with a major sports brand to develop the tycoon-style management mobile and web videogame, leveraging Web3 technology. The ‘first-of-its-kind’ mobile sports game will deliver ‘in-gameplay’ management of one’s digital collections within Magmic’s custodial platform, allowing ownership of one’s digital collections with an anticipated launch in late 2024.

“We are thrilled to announce our new game while our team is at GDC. The game is intended to be fun and easy-to-play and will allow the ‘soon to be revealed’ genre of sports fans and mobile gamers a chance to utilize a player-to-player marketplace and in-gameplay player ownership that leverages Web3 technology. It is Magmic’s vision and commitment to create an enjoyable gaming experience while also allowing true in-game asset ownership that truly sets it apart in the new world of Web3 gaming,” said Magmic CEO and President Mo Agha.

Innovating since its inception in 2002, Magmic has remained ahead of the curve in the ever-changing mobile game development landscape and monetization models. An early adopter of Web3 technology and integrating NFTs into Passport Rummy, one of Magmic’s flagship games, led the company to its first full Web3 game, Idle Pet Paradise. The successful development and release of Idle Pet Paradise afforded Magmic ‘ahead of its time’ expertise in the Web3 realm.

The new game announcement comes on the heels of the recently released UFC FIGHT CARD RUMMY, Magmic’s latest example of creating a ‘real money skill game’ that innovatively brings the joy of a classic game like Rummy together with a popular sports brand like UFC right to your mobile phone.

Invitations with the March 19th cocktail party time and location will be sent to select guests, including game industry mavens and the media.
