Game developer Yomi Games has raised $2 million in a seed round following its first NFT Gaming launch. The funding comes from investors such as Hypersphere Ventures, Infinity Ventures Crypto and Cultur3 Capital Maveron, Momentum 6, and Taureon just to name a few.

Yomi compares themselves to Zynga as they will be focused on a MOBILE-FIRST approach to social casual games.

NFT Gaming Oni Squad NFTs

Yomi Games released Oni Squad NFT collection, which free-mint dropped 6,666 hand-drawn generative Onis in January. Oni Squad collection reached 300 ETH (over $1 million at the time of release) in trading volume.

The NFTs are playable assets in their minigame called Oni Mansion. Players can earn tokens through daily missions and utilize them to upgrade their mansions.

“We believe player-owned economies, enabled by blockchain technology, are the future of gaming,” 

“We want all of our games to be as accessible as possible to the broadest audience and onboard people new to digital collectables and gaming NFTs,” said Yomi Games CEO Pavan Katepalli.

Yomi Games is one of a number of studios looking to bring blockchain games to mobile audiences. Recently, Battlebound (whose founders a former Riot Games staff) raided $4.8M in its seed round after partnering with multiple NFT projects.

This enhances the narrative of the growing WEB3 NFT gaming industry bringing in traditional gaming funding with growing interest in the shift to mobile.
