KENNETT SQUARE, Pa., July 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via IBN — Good Gaming, Inc. (OTCQB: GMER) (the “Company”), an innovative brand creating unique interactive entertainment experiences across the gaming segment since 2008, is excited to announce its strategic partnership with ViaOne Services. This partnership will deliver cutting-edge mobile gaming experiences to the Assist Wireless® and enTouch Wireless® customer bases, which are operated and managed by ViaOne Services. Good Gaming will also make its new mobile gaming experiences available through the Apple App Store® and Google Play™ Store. This innovative collaboration aims to redefine the gaming landscape by blending highly engaging mobile gaming experiences with Web3 technology, ushering in a new era of entertainment opportunities for gamers.
Assist Wireless and enTouch Wireless offer free mobile phones and discounted wireless phone service to qualifying consumers through the Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Programs administered by the Federal Communication Commission. This essential service provides low-income consumers with access to both a mobile device as well as essential communication services such as emergency services, health care, childcare, education, and potential employers. Assist Wireless and enTouch Wireless will initially preload up to 15,000 phones per month with a goal to exceed 100,000+ phones per month for Good Gaming’s series of mobile gaming apps as they are released.
Designed to captivate both casual and core gamers, Good Gaming’s flagship mobile game will launch the beginning of an expansive multi-year release schedule. The release schedule has been specifically crafted to provide engaging entertainment while offering players the chance to explore optional Web3 gaming components powered by blockchain technology. With a focus on creating experiences that appeal to a broad demographic, Good Gaming mobile games will also feature connected intellectual property components, featuring the MicroBuddies™, Super Craft Brothers Brawl™, and some special event elements from our other Minecraft™ experiences.
One of the most appealing features of this initiative will be the “integrated rewards tree,” offering players a wide range of mini-challenges featuring in-game rewards. In addition to in-game rewards, our players will have the ability to delve into the world of Web3 with engaging yet optional opportunities. This groundbreaking integration aims to transform the gaming experience by blending the traditional mobile game experience with cutting-edge blockchain technology to expand the players’ achievement set. This strategic initiative positions Good Gaming at the forefront of this niche marketplace, solidifying its position as a pioneering force in next-generation gaming.
The expanded achievement set will allow players the opportunity to obtain periodic, limited-supply skin drops, which will reward owners with cosmetics of various levels of rarity, collectability, and in-game benefits. These exclusive skins will be stored as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) within the game’s unique “vault,” acting as a blockchain wallet. Users with the technical know-how will also have the option to withdraw their skins to the blockchain, and Good Gaming will receive royalties from any secondary sales. As a special bonus for MicroBuddies™ players, particularly those with Divine Buddies, will have access to rare and exclusive skin drops, which will be periodically distributed, enhancing the gaming experience for dedicated and loyal players.
“Our goal is to achieve widespread adoption in the mobile gaming segment, catering to millions of active gamers and generating demand for our unique skin drops,” explained David Sterling, COO at Good Gaming Inc. “With our mobile gaming experiences, we aim to provide a wide range of benefits to mobile gamers, including the exciting opportunity to participate in dynamic Web3 experiences. We firmly believe that Web3 opportunities enhance the gaming experience for participants. Our Web3 integrations will naturally exist and flourish alongside our traditional mobile games, creating a seamless union.”
David Dorwart, CEO of Good Gaming Inc. and ViaOne Services, stated, “It’s no secret that mobile gaming has rapidly become the most important single vertical in gaming. With over 2.5 billion active users and annual revenues of more than $98 billion, mobile now accounts for over 50% of global gaming revenue. Utilizing our own brand to pre-install and launch allows us to go to market quickly and inexpensively. As we continue to roll this strategy out, Good Gaming will have the opportunity to pre-install its games on 100,000+ mobile phones per month through Assist and enTouch Wireless quickly and easily.” He also stated, “Our planned integration of Web3 abilities into our mobile gaming apps will give players real ownership and full control over their in-game assets since Web3 introduces a degree of free-market economics to games. Because players in Web3 games are free to sell and trade their in-game assets with each other with characters, collectibles, skins, and more, we can monetize various opportunities in the Web3 gaming space, which has experienced over 2000% growth over the last 12 months.”
“When we talk about 3 billion gamers, ninety-plus percent of those are on mobile,” said Kevin Chou, Managing Partner at Superlayer. “Having Web3 games not just be on a browser or on a client download but really reaching the market where it is, on mobile, is really important.”
This groundbreaking partnership between Good Gaming and ViaOne Services holds immense promise in revolutionizing the gaming landscape, fostering innovation, and creating a new realm of possibilities for both mobile gamers and Web3 enthusiasts alike. This also creates new revenue stream potential for Lifeline, ACP, and other mobile wireless providers.
