UK-based developer Oxalis Games has raised $4.5 million in support of its upcoming Web3 social simulator/farming RPG, Moonfrost. Notably, this is the very first Web3 project to be financially support by Supercell.
The $4.5 million seed round was led by Blocore, and included Supercell, Animoca Brands, Griffin Gaming Partners, and Sir Ian Livingstone and Jagex CEO Phil Mansell as angels.
Oxalis Games was co-founded by Ric Moore, former co-founder of Bossa Studios and The Secret Police – responsible for the mobile port of Stardew Valley, and Gina Nelson, who has worked on art teams in Star Wars and Disney, among other leading IP.
Moore stated: “We’re building the next generation of crypto games where fun comes first. We intend to raise the bar in terms of quality and user experience. We’re also doing some pioneering things with NFTs which we haven’t seen done before.”
Nelson added: “We’re building a game to stand the test of time. It’s going to redefine people’s perception of crypto games. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of such an innovative studio.”
Supercell has been active in providing financial support, including recently acquiring a majority stake in Love & Pies developer Trailmix, but this is the company’s first Web3 commitment.
Unlike many of the stalwart hands at Steel Media, Khai joins PocketGamer.biz fresh to both the games media and the wider games industry. There is much to learn, and he wants you onboard that journey.
