Mobile-first Collectible Card Game Chooses Immutable’s Highly Scalable, Gas-Free and Carbon-Neutral Platform To Enable First-of-a-Kind Gaming Experience For An Expanding Dystopian Fantasy
Sydney, Australia — August 11, 2022 — Immutable, a leading global Blockchain Gaming company bringing digital asset ownership to billions, has partnered with Cross The Ages (CTA) to launch the initial trading card game (TCG) in development for nearly two years. CTA is a free-to-play and play-and-earn game geared toward mobile play with expanding storylines and characters that bridge fantasy and science fiction with the best of retro gaming and collectibles to deliver a truly revolutionary web3 gaming experience.
The ambitious project combines limited-edition NFT trading cards issued at various levels of rarity with potential for physical activation by players who collect a complete set of a card. CTA will build completely on Immutable X for its easy-to-use integration tools and to provide gamers with a high-quality gaming ecosystem with speed and scalability to support high-volume transactions with zero gas fees and a carbon-neutral footprint. CTA is built around a series of seven free-to-read novels translated into multiple languages to be released over the next few years.
“We’re very excited to partner with Cross The Ages and support this amazingly creative TCG from the start,” said Robbie Ferguson, Co-Founder, Immutable. “CTA is leveraging our layer 2 technology and mobile gaming marketplace to enable more for players while also investing heavily in story and character development. We’re excited to help Cross The Ages leverage NFTs to provide today’s gamers with an even better experience and greater ownership over the worlds they help to create.”
The initial installment in the CTA literary series, “The Chrome Spell Book,” was written collaboratively by a team of 13 writers led by accomplished science fiction author Arnaud Dollen and is available to download now. CTA also boasts a creative team featuring over 70 international artists, including Joshua Cairos (Game of Thrones and Star Wars), Josu Salano (Lord of the Rings), Andreas Rochas (Harry Potter) and Sandra Duchiewitcz (Marvel Entertainment).
“Immutable is the ideal gaming blockchain to build Cross The Ages on because its scalability, speed and ease of integration mean that we can grow massively and provide players with reliable, quality service from day one into the years ahead,” said Sami Chlagou, CEO and Co-Founder, Cross The Ages. “We’ve invested heavily in every aspect of CTA and see Immutable as the most efficient and reliable blockchain partner to bring our project to life.”
CTA was founded by blockchain and crypto entrepreneur Christophe de Courson and CEO Sami Chlagou, owner of games publisher PixelHeart, behind more than 50 video games for various platforms such as Nintendo, Sony, Xbox, Steam and Android, including popular titles such as Guns of Mercy, Finding Teddy and Playroom Racer.
