GM Decentral Games community 👋
We’ve got a massive delivery to unpack this week. Pour yourself a coffee and let’s get straight into it.
🎮 ICE Poker Arcade
Introducing the ICE Poker Arcade: a new brand identity for our poker web app.
Decentral Games’ mission is to onboard the next million players into the Metaverse. To achieve this, we need to be able to simply explain our product to anyone.
With the launch of our new Prize Marketplace, we saw a perfect opportunity to explain ICE Poker using the analogy of an arcade: play in our poker arcade to win big prizes. Simple and easy to understand in a single line.
The ICE Poker Arcade is only the first step. In the coming months, we’ll be expanding the ICE Arcade with more games that you can play and win prizes from such as blackjack, roulette, and more.
To learn more about the new rebrand and what’s changing, check out the ICE Poker Arcade blog post.
🥇 Player Levels and Ranks
Ahhhhhhh I’m leveling.
This week, we released ICE Poker Player Levels: a new player progression system where you can earn points and level up to unlock more features.
Levels are now live in the ICE Poker Arcade app and we’ll be rolling it out to our Metaverse platform in the future.
Read this player level blog post to learn all about levels and how to level up.
🏴☠️ ICE Pirate
The ICE Pirate has joined the tables.
This a new All Access wearable collection that’s only available in the arcade prize shop. And the ICE Pirate also brought a friend: Chip the Monkey.
Does Richard have some competition now?
