28 April 2022 - GAMEE, the play-and-earn casual mobile gaming subsidiary of Animoca Brands, has partnered with Manchester City Football Club to bring football-themed games to the Arc8 play-and-earn gaming platform, which offers crypto rewards.
 
The first game to kick off the partnership is Manchester City Striker, a captivating football game with 3D graphics and addictive gameplay. Players will be challenged to beat an AI-controlled goalkeeper and simultaneously hit targets with increasing difficulty. GAMEE will host unique tournaments and matches in Man City Striker in which players will be able to earn crypto as rewards.
 
 
The partnership between GAMEE and Manchester City FC marks the starting point for the evolution of the Arc8 gaming platform into the “arcadeverse”, a virtual casual gaming space that connects players, brands, and game creators. 
 
Bozena Rezab, the CEO of GAMEE, commented: “Arc8 started as a mobile app offering crypto rewards for play-and-earn gameplay, and grew into a product with a global audience of 200,000 monthly active users. The next step in the evolution of Arc8 is to become a hub for partner projects that are entering the blockchain gaming space via our platform. Manchester City is one of the very first partners to go live and we’re thrilled to collaborate with one of the leading brands in the world of sports.”
 
Arc8 currently has 12 live games, including Asteroids in collaboration with Atari and, as of today, Man City Striker in partnership with Manchester City FC. Additional brand partnerships will be announced in the coming weeks.
