Andorra, Andorra - 03-08-2023 (PR Distribution™) -
One of the most striking successes of the national videogame crowdfunding reaches a new milestone. The company Be a Lion has completed the development of 'Battle Hero', the long-awaited NFT game for mobile and PC that has raised a record 1.5 million dollars before its launch.
Battle Hero' is a shooter-style action game for mobile devices and computers. Users can install it for free and receive virtual coins for the time they spend playing. These coins allow them to buy and sell characters, weapons, skins and other digital items in the game's marketplace using non fungible token (NFT) technology.
Users can also use their characters to collaborate in the development of the blockchain associated with the game and be rewarded with more coins. These novel possibilities have sparked great interest among gamers and cryptocurrency investors.
The game developers launched a crowdfunding campaign in October 2021, in which contributors could purchase exclusive characters to fund the game's development. The pre-sale, conducted in two phases, was a resounding success: all items offered sold out within minutes. In total, 'Battle Hero' raised $1.5 million.
After a year of intense work by the Be a Lion team, which is split between Andorra and Barcelona, the development of the game has been completed and preparations for the launch are being finalized. In the meantime, a beta version has been released for the Android platform and already has more than 10,000 downloads. The comments of the first users have served to polish the game before its official release.
The idea of 'Battle Hero' was born from the Andorran entrepreneur Rubén Martín, CEO of Be a Lion, and the Catalan programmer Francisco Denia, CTO of the company. After years collaborating in the development of applications and web pages, they decided to focus on mobile games. Initially, they wanted to create a conventional shooter game in the style of Fortnite or Call of Duty, but then the option arose to combine it with the boom in cryptocurrencies and NFTs. The proposal has been so well liked that, in addition to sweeping their crowdfunding campaigns, they have received offers from prominent investors.
"Last year, a Spanish businessman from the Forbes list offered us half a million euros for a 33% stake in the company, after seeing just a few renders of the game and the record collection we obtained in the crowdfunding. We didn't accept it, because it wasn't from the industry and didn't bring anything more than capital. Battle Hero' is a project created by gamers and for gamers, and we want to continue maintaining the independence and disruptive spirit with which it was born", explains Rubén Martín, CEO of Be a Lion.
'Battle Hero' will be available for Android/iOS, Windows and Mac platforms. After the launch, the company plans to develop its own wallet for the management of users' NFTs, organize periodic tournaments for players and open to the community the possibility of collaborating in the creation of new game modes and maps.
