Foonie Magus, the company behind Apeiron, the world’s first god-game with NFTs, has announced that it will receive $750,000 of investment from Yield Game Guilds Southeast Asia (YGG SEA) and Infinity Ventures Crypto (IVC), in a strong show of support for the metaverse’s hottest new project. The two organizations will use the money to acquire their very own YGG SEA Constellation in Apeiron’s SEA Mythologically-inspired galaxy, which will come with its own NFTs, cosmetics, and tokens for guild scholars to enjoy.
Over half a decade in the making, Apeiron revitalizes the classic god-game formula popularized by games like Black and White and brings it into the modern age with elements of grand strategy, RPG, and roguelike, all developed exclusively on the blockchain with the metaverse in mind. Players will take the role of Godlings, newborn deities who will oversee planets full of Doods, cute chubby creatures who need a little direction. With an innovative tri-token economy, players will be able to play and earn at the same time, unraveling the mysteries of the godiverse and being rewarded with real assets for their play.
Frank Cheng, CEO and co-founder of Foonie Magus, speaking of the YGGSEA AND IVC deal, had this to say:
“Of the many potential partners and investors I have talked to, YGGSEA and IVC are different from the rest. They have demonstrated time and again a genuine passion for the actual game itself, and that reflects how much they care about the SEA community…It has been a humbling and very pleasant learning experience to work with them and to gain their early support, and we’re thrilled to be able to continue this partnership long into the future.”
IVC joined with YGG, one of the world’s biggest gaming guilds, to co-found YGG SEA. Evan Spytma, CEO and co-founder of YGGSEA, said that Apeiron was “an ultimate strategic god game placed in outer space. How can you go wrong with a combination like that? YGG SEA’s investment in Apeiron is one of its largest investments in any single game, demonstrating the guild’s faith in Apeiron.
Apeiron is currently in its seed round with a fully diluted valuation of $80m, and is continuing to attract a host of partners and collaborators. The 1st Apeiron NFT Presale is scheduled at the end of Q1 2022, with the game planning to launch late 2022.
Apeiron is the world’s first play-and-earn godgame built with NFTs. Apeiron will have integrated gameplay inspired by classic god games such as Populous and Black & White, as well as a unique card-based action-adventure battle system. You will be able to build planets from on high before descending to the ground as a controllable Avatar to dive into dungeons and unravel the universe’s mysteries. Grow your planet until it can no longer grow, then reset the planetary cycle to allow for further advancement and exciting late-game alliance-level GvE and GvG activities. Apeiron will have a tri-token model, meaning three different tokens that will populate their ecosystem; a governance token, play to earn token, and a premium alliance token.
