Web3 Creator Fantasy World Yumon is Officially Launching This Week
The creator fantasy game allows players to manage a virtual team of influencers and win cash prizes for doing so.
Meet Yumon - the world's first creator fantasy game in Web3
If you've dabbled in the NFT gaming space for a while, you would surely come across fantasy sports titles such as Sorare. But do you know that a creator fantasy world is coming your way? Meet Yumon, a play-and-earn creator fantasy game on Immutable X officially launching on November 16th.
Within the vast universe of Yumon, players get to manage a virtual team of Youtubers and streamers to take part in weekly tournaments. By selecting three creators to join their squad, they can compete in various fantasy competitions every week. Interestingly, the game is designed such that players' performance will depend on the creators' real-life metrics. The more influential your creator is, the more likely your squad ranks higher on the leaderboard.
There are three types of cards in Yumon: Creator cards, Item cards, and Special cards. Creator cards are the main playable cards, available in five rarity levels: Common, Limited, Rare, Epic, and Unique. Common Creator cards are non-tradeable assets that you can win in free-to-play tournaments, while Limited cards, or better, are NFT cards obtained from play-and-earn matches.
While free players usually earn Common Creator cards and non-tradeable game items, those who reach the Podium of the Casual League will eventually earn Limited cards to join play-and-earn tournaments. Top scorers in paid matches will receive valuable NFT cards, item cards, and cash prizes as rewards.
At launch, fans of these influential streamers will be able to try out Yumon and buy NFT cards to support the creators they love. This project is currently backed by big names in the industry, including Twitch, The Sandbox, Ubisoft, Webedia, Unity, Epic, and Meta.
The team is also hosting a special giveaway to celebrate the game launch tomorrow. According to its Twitter post below, ten lucky winners will receive a booster pack each to kick-start their journey in Yumon.
