What’s different About Trailblazer Games?
Besides having a top-tier team, the studio aims to bridge the gap between fun and Web3 principles, which the majority of p2e games lack so far. So, the focus is on the gamers, with an eye toward adding meaning, fun, and value for them.
Another important challenge is the acquisition and retention of players in blockchain games. The studio plans to innovate a strategy focusing on user acquisition, engagement, and retention. The plan is to achieve it by leveraging data, blockchain, and AI to make it user-friendly for both crypto and non-crypto gamers.
Moreover, the studio focuses on iteration execution involving fast-paced learning and its application. The team will achieve it by launching spelled-out experiences and keeping an eye on player feedback.
The studio received funding of $8.2 million this year, led by top investors like Makers Fund, Play Ventures, and Fabric Ventures, among others. The fund has helped Trailblazer Games extend its partnerships and hire more talent to work on the roadmap and development of Eternal Dragons. As of now, the studio has a growing and diverse team comprising 10 nationalities across 6 European states. The team draws on the experience of Wooga, King, Snowprint, and Sorare.
Trailblazer Games Flagship Project: Eternal Dragons
Eternal Dragons is a fantasy multi-chapter epic strategy blockchain game with NFTs powered by the Solana blockchain. This gaming franchise will initially launch three games, with the first two being an auto chess battler and a dragon breeding game. The games will be free-to-play on mobile, with a strong emphasis on tactical battle. With the competitive tactical battle genre at its core, the team’s vision for esports is also on the cards.

Trailblazer Games Announces Alpha for Eternal Dragons
Earlier in November, the studio announced the release of the Alpha version of Eternal Dragons. Moreover, a playable Alpha demo was also showcased at Libson Breakpoint. The alpha of the game will reach the NFT holders by the end of Q4 of 2022. Previously, Trailblazer Games had a successful run with the sale of the Eternal Dragons Genesis collection, where 10,000 NFTs were released. The NFT sale performed surprisingly well and sold out in record time, despite the market’s severe bearish trend.
According to the roadmap, the first game will enter beta testing next year, after which it will see a global release. Moreover, Games 2 and 3 will enter the development phase. So, in the coming years, the utility of the Dragon NFTs will increase manifold as they will work across the entire Eternal Dragon ecosystem.
