Number One Games Provider for Snapchat Moves to Web3 Social Gaming with Super Snappy
The number one games provider for Snapchat is developing Super Snappy, a Web3 social gaming platform that makes it easy to invite friends over to play hypercasual multiplayer games together through a simple link from which these arcade titles can be accessed, with no blockchain knowledge needed to jump in.
Gamebop, the number one games provider for Snapchat, has decided to pivot to Web3 social gaming with Super Snappy, a cross-platform social gaming platform that lets players easily invite their friends by a simple link through any messaging app that seamlessly takes them to a hypercasual game to enjoy together.
The team is working on developing various arcade games for the Polygon-based Web3 platform, while partnering with Voodoo Games to also create numerous titles for everyone to enjoy without needing any crypto knowledge. Every player will be automatically given a custodial crypto wallet when they register on the platform in order to be able to easily trade on their native marketplace as well as to seamlessly earn rewards that include NFTs and the platform’s ERC-20 token, $SUPR, from tournaments and other activities.
Super Snappy not only lets you have fun together, but it also acts as a social network in which you can create your own 3D avatar, user profile, groups, and clans while communicating with your friends via voice, text and video. There will be achievements to collect, as well as an NFT marketplace to easily trade digital assets in. These NFTs could include pets that players can upgrade and enjoy passive bonuses or active powers from. Some games may even let you play as your own pet.
This web platform is slated to launch not only for browsers, but also for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, Linux, and consoles, including PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo. According to the roadmap on the official website, a private soft launch is planned for this Q2, while an open soft launch is scheduled for Q3 this year on desktop and mobile, with a console release expected to happen sometime next year.
More specifically, a GamesBeat interview reveals that the private release is planned for July 15 only for those who own an NFT from the First Citizens NFT collection, while the official launch will take place on September 15.
