MetaKing Studios has received $15 million in a seed funding round led by Makers Fund and BITKRAFT, with participation from Delphi Digital, Animoca Brands, Shima Capital, WW Ventures, Spartan Group, and Huobi Ventures.

The startup plans to use the capital to accelerate the development of its flagship strategy game "Blocklords", which is launching in early access this year.

The company was founded by CEO David Johansson and COO Nicky Li, both of whom have decades of experience with free-to-play game development and production. The MetaKing Studio team consists of more than 100 artists, designers, and developers from Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Paradox Interactive, and Creative Assembly.

David Johansson, CEO of MetaKing Studios said,

“At heart, we’re a team of gamers and tech enthusiasts who want to create fun, enjoyable experiences using the nascent technologies available to us. In Blocklords, we have been working to build a massive, dynamic game world that is directly shaped by players’ choices, whether they choose to be humble Farmers or powerful Lords and Ladies. By giving players full ownership of their digital assets, not only are we incentivizing the way they play games, we’re empowering them to have fun in the process.”

Blocklords is a player-driven medieval strategy MMO featuring PVP battles along with deep historical fantasy lore and a detailed lineage system. Blocklords uses Web3 technology developed by the Seascape Network to allow players to fully control their in-game assets. In addition, players can control the economy and create and maintain their own player-run governments through strategic trade, conquest, and resource management.

Blocklords already has a large player following, with over 10,000 active community members eagerly creating content and designs alongside the MetaKing Studios development team in anticipation of the game's upcoming release.
