Anomura, a gaming experience fusing wildlife conservation awareness through compelling gameplay, partners with Atari, a founding member of the arcade game, game console, and personal computer industries. This is a mutual opportunity to showcase the capabilities of both the gaming industries and blockchain technology. Through this partnership, Atari creates an exclusive mint experience for Anomura integrating assets from games like Asteroids®, Adventure™, PONG®, Centepede®, Atari Arcade, Atari 2600, and more while also exploring future in-game integration of elements and games to explore interoperability within Anomura and beyond.

Atari evokes nostalgia as one of the first at-home gaming systems created in 1977. The Atari 2600 became one of the most popular gaming systems in history, with sales of over 30 million over the span of three decades.  In recent years, Atari has entered the blockchain gaming space by launching Atari X, a robust blockchain ecosystem that intertwines gaming, community, and utility. Atari X consolidates Atari’s blockchain interests into a unified operation that is wholly controlled by Atari.

Anomura leverages its retro style to help facilitate Atari’s push into the forward-looking world of Web3 gaming. In celebration, Anomura will be increasing its NFT supply by 800 to provide additional opportunities for minting. The scheduled launch date for this collection sale is September 13, 2022, with a mint price of 0.075 ETH.

Created and built by NFT Game Director Long Do, Anomura is the by-product of years of research that combines experiences Do has encountered as both a developer and longtime gamer himself. Anomura sits under the wing of Virtually Human Studios (VHS), creators of ZED RUNVHS continues diving into supporting projects promoting accessibility and inclusivity in the Web3 space. The entertainment brand’s recent launch of Human Park—a metaverse experience with extremely low entry barriers—was its first venture into bridging the gap between the masses and Web3, and the backing of Anomura continues the trend.

“Anomura is proud to be the bridge between the original gaming console and blockchain gaming,“ says Long Do, Game Director of Anomura. “ By partnering with a gaming giant like Atari, we hope to build a completely new gaming adventure. We hope to leverage Anomura’s unique style with Atari’s technology to create the most immersive in-game experience that pushes forward the gaming industry.”

“Fans of Atari will love to see their favorite classic games integrated into Anomura’s Web3 games,” says Tyler Drewitz, Director of Atari Xof Atari X. “We are excited to collaborate with Anomura as they create the next generation of blockchain gaming.”

SuperGaming and Google Cloud Collaborate to Empower Game Developers with a SuperPlatform

Published

Leading Indian game developer SuperGaming has chosen Google
Cloud to bring its best-in-class live-ops engine, SuperPlatform, to game developers the world
over. This will empower game developers to make better games with battle-tested cloud
infrastructure that currently powers all of SuperGaming’s efforts. This includes PAC-MAN, which
has more than one billion downloads across all storefronts, and its multiplayer shooter
MaskGun, which has more than 65 million players.

SuperPlatform will run on Google Cloud and will enable game developers to manage live ops,
matchmaking, player progression, player data, analytics, monetization systems, server scaling,
sales, and merchandising. It also integrates with popular game development platforms.

“The SuperPlatform is at the core of what makes our games tick,” says Roby John, CEO and
co-founder, SuperGaming. “It’s been made by game developers, for game developers, and after
years of iteration, finesse, and supporting some marquee games like PAC-MAN, we felt it’s the
right time to share it with more game developers. Google Cloud’s reach, technical expertise, and
best-in-class infrastructure made it an obvious choice as our partner to bring this to market.”

SuperPlatform is a SaaS (software as a service) and will be an ISV (independent software
vendor) running on Google Cloud, which provides secure, scalable, and sustainable
infrastructure that will enable more game developers to access SuperPlatform at scale.

“Gaming is a big focus for Google Cloud. We have scaled our global investments in this space
and are excited about the response we are getting from the market. ” says Bikram Singh Bedi,
managing director, Google Cloud India. “Advancements like the SuperPlatform are welcome
additions to an ever-evolving ecosystem. With Google Cloud’s infrastructure that enables
developers to build at scale and SuperGaming’s pedigree in gaming, we can really drive impact
and innovation and see more games come out of India.”

“By working closely with Google Cloud engineers and SDKs, a lot of our initial friction was
eased,” says Navneet Singh Waraich, chief technology officer and co-founder, SuperGaming.
“One key for us and our SuperPlatform customers is choice, and the ability to migrate our entire
orchestration as needed for cost-effectiveness without disrupting the game client or server
integrations on the frontend. This was a major plus for choosing to build our current stack on
Google Cloud.”

In addition to this, upcoming SuperGaming titles such as Indo-Futuristic battle royale, Indus and
Tower Conquest Metaverse Edition will also run on Google Cloud.
