Pudgy Penguins, brand development company behind the Pudgy Penguins characters, and next-generation gaming technology studio, Mythical Games, have announced a partnership to create a Web3-enabled mobile video game.

The upcoming mobile immersive video game draws upon the lore and humor of Pudgy Penguins, coupled with AAA quality, playability and accessibility synonymous with Mythical Games’ title, NFL Rivals. The new game is scheduled to launch on the Mythical platform next year, home to NFL Rivals, with over 5 million players, and the Mythos Chain (MYTH), with over one million active wallets.

“Web3 in gaming is evolving quickly, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the need for games to be powered by strong communities and great gameplay,” says John Linden, chief executive officer, Mythical Games. “Pudgy Penguins is the only Web3 project to truly go mainstream through their incredible retail partnerships with Walmart and Target and their rapidly growing social media following. We are excited to combine their efforts with a game that will be played by millions. Building this with Mythical Games on the Mythical Platform and Mythos Chain, already used by millions of consumers, is going to be a major driver to further push Web3 with mainstream consumers.”

“When we decided to create a mobile-first AAA blockchain-based Pudgy Penguins game, working with Mythical Games is something that excited me,” says Luca Netz, chief executive officer, Pudgy Penguins. “Our growth strategy that has reached millions, combined with Mythical Games’ experience and success with gaming, sets up this endeavor for success. We can’t wait to show the Pudgy Penguins community what’s in store and solicit their feedback as development ramps up.”

In the build-up to its release, Pudgy Penguins holders will be treated to exclusive content, sneak peeks of in-game footage and given the opportunity to help shape key aspects of the game’s development. The game is designed to appeal to the Pudgy Penguins community as well as the broader gaming market to further grow the Pudgy Penguins’ brand and ethos.
