The fastest-growing hyper-casual developer BoomBit has announced the launch of BoomLand, a new polygon-based web3 gaming platform built on Polygon’s Supernet Technology. The BoomLand project was launched in collaboration with Polygon Studios. BoomLand’s parent company BoomBit is one of the fastest-growing mobile gaming studios with 33 million monthly active users and more than one billion downloads to date.
How BoomLand aim to onboard Web2 gamers and developers alike?
BoomLand aims to be a Web3 blockchain gaming platform that will focus on publishing good quality games with a familiar web2 experience and user interface so that it will be easier to onboard web2 players on its platform. At present most web3 games require a complex onboarding process that involves wallets, gas fees, tokens, and crypto exchanges. BoomLand will create an easier onboarding process for gamers so that it will be more effortless for web2 players to create an account and start playing and earning inside the game.
On the other hand, game developers face a huge problem in developing blockchain games therefore BoomLand has come up with its own set of tools and techniques that developers can use to build blockchain games without getting into complex blockchain programming languages.
What is Hunter On-Chain game?
Hunter On-Chain is the first play-to-earn blockchain game that is going to release on the BoomLand Platform. It is a battle royale NFT-based game where players will compete against each other as hunters. Each hunter is an NFT that players can buy from the marketplace to summon them. The Hunters will be stored in the player’s wallet and during the game, players can select a hunter for the match.
There are many game modes like Co-Op, Bounty Hunter, Duel, Boss Hunt, Dungeons, and Hunt along with mini-games such as Tower Defense, Survival mode, and races. Players can join Duel matches to play PvP battles in a 2-3 player face-off. On winning the game, players will receive $BGEM and $BOOM tokens. The $BOOM tokens can be used for summoning new hunters.
Partnership with Polygon Studios
Polygon Studios, a company that helps developers build blockchain apps on Polygon by providing them development, onboarding support, investment, and technology has partnered with BoomLand for the deployment of its ecosystem via Polygon’s Supernet infrastructure. The supernet infrastructure will help in removing gas fees, reduce latency and provide a fast blockchain ecosystem. The supernet will have highly customizable subchains that will allow developers to deploy apps without having to build their infrastructure.
“BoomLand will be critical in introducing new, non-blockchain native users to Web3 gaming. We’re incredibly excited to bring them into the budding Supernet ecosystem and eager to see what they can create.”
Steven Bryson-Haynes, VP of Business Development, NFT & Gaming at Polygon Studios
