Name of Project
5x5 Gaming is building cross-platform gaming experiences for all gamers who are looking to compete, collect, socialize and play-to-earn. Our mission is to evolve gaming using the latest NFT technology to build trust, safety, and true digital asset ownership to unlock the best gaming and collectibles experience.
We are currently working on our 1st unannounced title which will have play to earn loops that gives out in game characters and other assets that users will be able to tokenize and we would like to use Harmony tech stack.
Funds we are asking will allow us to hire additional engineers so that we can start our Harmony integration as well as speeding up our game development.
Our moment-to-moment game play is Auto-Chess and takes place during medieval times. We are currently at a playable demo stage and working on our vertical slice to take the game to close beta.
Here are some game play screens and sample of our NFT Cards and Game Characters
