Voodoo continues to support Volt Games for its development in blockchain gaming
Volt has been working with Voodoo to test and launch games since 2020 and more recently announced its transition to developing NFT and blockchain-based mobile games.
The team has already started working on its first NFT mobile game, MetaStar Attackers, a soccer-themed game with a “Score and Earn” model, built on Polygon. Players compete in online football matches to collect NFTs. The investment follows Voodoo’s announcement in December last year to invest $200 million to support talented studios looking to create successful blockchain games.
Alexandre Yazdi, co-founder and CEO of Voodoo said: “We are thrilled to lead Volt Games’ fundraising to support the development of the blockchain mobile game company. The team already has an impressive track record of creating entertaining mobile games and we look forward to helping them build their future success in the blockchain game”.
Pedro Cabaco, co-founder and CEO of Volt Games said: “It’s a really exciting time for the games industry where Play & Earn is growing in popularity, and partnering with Voodoo and our other investors seems like the right move to make a big impact in this space.”
He added, “With MetaStar Strikers and the MetaStar brand, we’re not just building a football game – we’re creating a sports metaverse that’s fully interoperable with other sports games like basketball, tennis, or golf. Here, most NFTs and in-game currency will be usable across all games, adding more utility and value to these assets.
