Opis Group secures £4m funding to develop cloud and gaming applications.

Brighouse, 16/02/22 – Opis Group, a British blockchain company, is delighted to announce the opening of a second office after securing initial private seed investment. The company is the parent organisation of Opis Games and Opis Cloud. The new office will be equipped with state of the art audio-visual equipment designed to help the team develop their gaming and cloud computing solutions and develop marketing content.

In Q3 2022, Opis Games will launch its first product, OpiPets, a free play-to-earn game built on the blockchain. The Opis Games team includes past Universal, Pixar, Electronic Arts (EA) employees and established tabletop role-playing game authors. Blockchain gaming has grown from a zero value market size to approximately $3 billion in 2021. This figure is predicted to rise to $39.7 billion by 2025, taking a significant chunk of the $151.1 billion legacy video game market. 

While professional video game players have earned prize money through video games for many years, the emergence of blockchain technology and NFTs have given normal users the ability to trade their unique characters and in-game items, and earn cryptocurrency for completing in-game tasks.

Vince Howard, Head of Marketing at Opis Group, stated, “we believe that the people who are creating the value should profit from the upside. The emergence of Web3 and blockchain technology enables the players that help to make a game a success rightly benefit from that success instead of large gaming companies and platforms gaining all the value.”

“Crypto and NFTs are growing in popularity, and we believe this genre will play a significant role in the future of gaming,” explained Vince. “We want to build a free and fun game where users can play for something.”

Some play to earn games reward users up to £800 a month, however, most existing titles have high entry prices. Some require players to spend over £500 just to get started. “Rewarding people for their participation is fundamental to us at Opis Group,” added Vince. “Building on the success of existing play-to-earn titles, we wanted to create a new and exciting title but make it accessible to everyone without the high initial fees.”

OpiPets, the free play-to-earn online game that rewards players with cryptocurrency and the ability to sell their unique NFT OpiPet characters, will be available to play across browser-enabled devices in late Q2 2022.
