Cool Cats partners with Animoca Brands-owned video game developers

Quick Take

  • The firm behind the Cool Cats NFT project is working with video game developers to launch three different video games by the end of 2024.

Cool Cats Group, the firm behind the blue-chip NFT project of the same name, is partnering with three video game development firms, two of which are owned by Animoca Brands.

A Cool Cats partnership with nWay will yield a competitive multiplayer arcade game, with iCandy helping to develop an endless running game. Sync Studios, meanwhile, will help Cool Cats release a "match3" game, or a puzzle-like matching game like Candy Crush.

Cool Cats and its video game development partners are currently working on the games, which are slated to launch by the end of 2024.

"Gaming is an immersive content distribution platform that builds emotional connection with the characters and story through engaging game play," Cool Cats CEO Stephen Teglas said in a statement. "Our new games are critical to our ongoing mission of developing Cool Cats into a globally known character brand, and a robust storytelling and content company."
