DEA’s fresh round of funding comes on the heels of a new P&E game announcement for “Rogue Roll Ruler’s” which will launch soon on PlayMining. A dungeon exploration-themed board game RPG with a competitive treasure hunting focus, Rogue Roll Ruler’s features Adventurer, Equipment and Monster NFTs which impact gameplay in a wide variety of ways.
As opposed to other strategy exploration games, Rogue Roll Ruler’s uses dice to control character movement.
“I thought it would be interesting to have moments where luck is on your side and you can earn a substantial amount. With that in mind, I consolidated the ideas for this game,” said Rogue Roll Ruler’s Director, Yuma Ito.
“Rogue Roll Ruler’s not only focuses on the ‘earning’ aspect, but also incorporates the enjoyment of discovering, combining and deciphering the story woven into the game.”
Rogue Roll Ruler’s GameFi NFTs are on presale now on the PlayMining NFT marketplace, and the game is expected to launch around September, 2023.
Widening PlayMining’s Community of Collaboration Partners
DEA has been busy in recent months, forging new partnerships that primarily focus on joint-development collaborations. DEA says it is dedicated to seeking out business opportunities that further their dual goals of accelerating mainstream adoption of GameFi and Web3 technologies and promoting social good through Web3.
In June, DEA announced a new joint development project with Rita Technology to create a P&E game that allows players to remotely control real robot arms installed in waste removal facilities. DEA also recently signed an MOU with TEPCO Power Grid to co-develop a P&E game that incentivizes players to inspect aging electric power infrastructure in their local communities.
Both collaborations help to alleviate labour shortages by fractionalizing work in their respective industries, thereby creating a positive social impact that will have lasting benefits for the people, corporations and the environment.
DEA has also partnered with Oasys, a game specialized blockchain based in Japan. Through their partnership, DEA is supporting other GameFi projects to launch on Oasys, the first of which will be -KAMIYAGURA-, a next-generation NFT trading card game.
Another collaboration that will see DEA further Web3 adoption is a joint development project with TV Tokyo Corporation to launch seven AI virtual idols whose personalities can be configured by holders of linked “Developer NFTs”. The idols will be featured on television shows broadcast on TV Tokyo.
Expanding the Ever-Growing PlayMining Platform
PlayMining has six P&E titles in their game catalog, including Job Tribes, Menya Dragon Ramen, Cookin’ Burger, Lucky Farmer, Graffiti Racer and Lost Archive +, all of which are focused on casual play. The platform also features the Kamui Fujiwara Verse metaverse project that sees players collaborate with a famous Japanese manga artist to co-create new content.
Launching this summer with four collaborative tie-in projects is another co-creative game, SOUL Fusers, which allows players to contribute to the game’s design and development in various ways.
In addition to P&E games, the PlayMining platform is also home to two NFT marketplaces and DEA’s own cryptocurrency token, DEAPcoin ($DEP).
“As part of our mission to create social good through our products, we also team up with third-party game development studios to launch their new games on PlayMining,” Yoshida said.
“In addition to charging very modest fees, we offer our partners full access to our NFT marketplaces and to integrate DEAPcoin in their games. This can be a massive boon for indie game companies looking to monetize their new IPs in what is otherwise an exceedingly competitive industry.”
