Blast Royale Raises $5 Million in Seed Round Co-led by Animoca Brands and Mechanism Capital

First Light Games announced today that its blockchain-based play-and-earn mobile title Blast Royale has successfully closed a $5 million private token sale. The round was co-led by Animoca Brands and Mechanism Capital with participation from several other top investors and partners including Dragonfly Capital, DeFiance Capital, Play Ventures Future Fund, Double Peak, Polygon, C² Ventures, Morningstar Ventures, DWeb3, Merit Circle, Ancient 8, AvocadoDAO as well as being backed by notable angel investors such as Santiago R Santos and Nick Chong.

“We are thrilled to have such strong backing from some of the most influential investors in blockchain gaming. All of our partners share our vision for making Blast Royale one of the best gaming titles, providing compelling, fun gameplay and creating a Battle Royale game suitable for the Web3 generation,” said Neil McFarland, CEO of First Light Games.

Yat Siu, the executive chairman and co-founder of Animoca Brands, commented: “We are very impressed with the high quality of gameplay in Blast Royale. Given the progress so far and the First Light Games team’s strong pedigree of several iconic hit games, we believe that Blast Royale will be an appealing and compelling metaverse entry for a new generation of gamers.”

“When a space like crypto gaming is in its infancy, it’s incredibly important to back strong thinkers who shape how the space evolves. The team at First Light is first class. Not only is this team behind some great gaming hits like Monument Valley, Street Fighter and Merge Dragons, but they were also on the cusp of the free-to-play paradigm shift. We’re very excited to work with the team to tackle what a play-to-earn world might look like,” said Eva Wu, Principal, Mechanism Capital.

The funds raised will be used to continue to develop the game, attract top talent, and grow the game community. Blast Royale is built on the Polygon L2 chain and is due for testnet release at the end of Q2. Players equip NFT items onto their characters and take part in Battle Royales, where they earn ‘Craft Spice’ to upgrade and improve their equipment. A further competitive metagame layer has also been added to equipment, giving players strategic agency over the optimal loadout to bring into battle. Furthermore, tournaments and high-stakes Blast Royales are also planned later in the year as First Light Games plans a push into esports.

With its high-quality graphics, competitive metagame mechanics, exciting gameplay, and unique monetization features, Blast Royale promises to revolutionize GameFi.
