Welcome to 2023!
We are thrilled for this new year and for the new and exciting opportunities that lie ahead for us as a team and as a community.
Indeed, the year 2022 was a head-scratcher for the entire crypto community, but for us at LOCGame, it was an opportunity to keep building, and we seized it.
We are proud of the strides we have made and our many victories, and for all the times we missed a step, we took that as a sincere lesson.
We are grateful for your support as a community. We took your positive criticisms and feedback, and now we’re glad to share with you our milestones as we look back on the year that was in 2022.
Last year, one thing was our top priority: game development. Following up on the previous Alpha 2.0 version, we resolved to have the first playable version of the game. In May 2022, we launched the first major game release in Season 0, aka the Apollo Heights Season. In the Apollo release, our community was introduced to two new game modes: PvP-friendly mode and PvP Tour.
As the community took to testing and playing in Season 0, we decided to update the game design. With a new UX/UI, we also introduced new interactive visual effects, in-game tutorials, and more. More importantly, we fixed the bugs and improved the player’s overall gaming experience.
Our next major release of the year came in September 2022, the Awakening season
. In the Awakening season, we implemented the Metamask Login, the play-to-earn mechanism, friendly matches that let you play against friends in wager mode or for free, and Arena PvP games to test your skills against other players.
We ended the year on a high note with the release of the highly anticipated mobile version of Android. Now, all Android users can enjoy the game here
Last year, to foster our growth in the ecosystem, we secured multiple partnerships.
Designers & Celebrities
We partnered with several world-famous designers, including Prada, Burberry, Moschino, Etro, and Dsquared to launch “The Wolves of Crypto” NFT collection. We also collaborated with the well-known DJ Soda on the DJ Soda exclusive NFT packs.
Guilds and Web3 Platforms
We secured partnerships with many key web3 industry players, including Unfettered
Games, Infinity Force
, Earn Guild
, RainMaker Games
, Token Play,
and Funjible Games
. And to kickstart 2023, we are excited to announce a new partnership with Tofu NFT, the largest multichain NFT marketplace. Through this partnership, you can now buy your favourite LOCGame cards (the new and OG characters) from our verified profile on the platform
We also dipped our feet into music-making with our Ground Zero
music album containing the 7 soundtracks of our favourite LCOGame characters. We hope that you love it as much as we did. You can enjoy our soundtracks here
Last year, we had the privilege to attend several crypto and blockchain events, advancing the message of LOCGame and completing important partnerships. We attended the WOW Summit in Dubai and Lisbon, the GDC Conference in San Francisco
Day, the Asia Metaverse Conference
, the Global Metaverse Carnival
, and the prestigious Web Summit
in Lisbon. At the Web Summit, we held an exhibition booth of our products and were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and excitement of everyone who stopped by our booth to try out our games.
We closed the year with a nomination for the European Blockchain Awards in Barcelona. This January, we were named one of the top 10 blockchain startups
in Europe and will be pitching at the live event in February.
We will also be live at the Miami Expoverse
in February. Our CEO, Mik Mironov, will be speaking, and we will be exhibiting our games in our booth!
Apollo Edition NFT Sale
For the Apollo Edition in May 2022, we released nine new NFT packs and two new levels of card rarity: Super- Elite and Legendary. During the Apollo Sale, the most-wanted Wolf of Crypto packs were made in collaboration with designers from Prada, Burberry, Moschino, Etro, and Dsquared.
Awakening Season NFT Sale
For the Awakening Release, we launched two new packs, the Starter Pack
and Story Mode pack, along with a very unique and valuable character — Iris
– who was providing early access to the Awakening Season. The Starter Pack contains 15 new cards and characters to get new gamers to start playing. The Story mode contains five new cards and characters as well. The Awakening packs were the first to be listed on the in-game store.
Black Friday and Holiday NFT Sales
In November 2022, we held our first-ever Black Friday NFT sale. The Black Friday sale was followed by the ongoing Christmas Holiday NFT sale
. During the Holiday sale, we launched two new packs: the Mega Pack and the Dark Night Pack. The Holiday Sale is still ongoing on the marketplace
In 2022, our $LOCG token turned 1. This was an important milestone in our journey, and we look forward to marking many more anniversaries. The LOCG token is listed on Kucoin
, and Hotbit.
We are proud of all our achievements in 2022. We look forward to recording even bigger achievements in 2023.
Cheers to a new year!
The LOCGame Team.
