Atari intends to bring its historical games to the Enjin Multiverse
Atari continues to explore the world of blockchain with another partnership: this time it will bring its titles to the Enjin platform.
Video game giant Atari has announced a collaboration with on-chain gaming ecosystem Enjin to integrate its iconic licensed titles into the Enjin multiverse.
According to a December 10 blog post on the company’s blog, the first fruits of this collaboration Profit Revolution will be a series of NFTs to be used in the legendary football game Kick Off.
The original game was released in 1989 for the Atari ST and the Commodore Amiga, and was described in reviews at the time as the „best football game to have ever appeared on any machine“.
Kick Off Evolution should be launched during the second quarter
Developer eBallR Games wants to transpose the series into the blockchain era: the next Kick Off Evolution should be launched during the second quarter of 2021 in the Enjin multiverse.
Enjin is an Ethereum-based platform that provides developers with a range of tools to easily integrate blockchain functionality into their games. The Enjin multiverse is an ecosystem in which individual games using this system can share resources, in the form of NFT.
Enjin’s Director of Business Development, Alex Russman, has expressed enthusiasm for the partnership with Atari:
„We are very happy with this partnership with Atari: this name is known to people of all ages, as it is synonymous with video games. His confidence in the blockchain demonstrates the maturity of this technology and the tools now available“.
Atari has recently made great strides in the blockchain and the on-chain gaming market. In March, he announced a similar collaboration with The Sandbox, licensing some of his classic games for use within the Sandbox universe.
In addition, as reported by Cointelegraph in September, the upcoming reboot of Atari’s classic VCS will use blockchain technology as standard.
The company also announced and then launched its own token, the ATRI. Unfortunately, following several setbacks during the sale, the token’s price fell 70 per cent once trading began.
