Location, July 22, 2022 — Bowled.io, a Singapore-based social gaming platform, has acquired NPL, a Bengaluru-based Web3 gaming studio, which went live with their first title just a few weeks back on Google Playstore.
This strategic move is the first acquisition for Bowled.io. As a result, Bowled will be able to meet its vision of becoming the Netflix of blockchain gaming and offer users multiple game formats with the same economy and rewards distribution system.
With this acquisition, Bowled.io also plans to host ‘originals,’ which are the games built, owned, and operated (BO&O) in-house, and also work with a network of partner studios to bring more game formats to the platform.
NPL brings over 20 years of experience in developing game formats for Utility and Unreal. NFT Premier League (NPL.io) is already live on Playstore and being tested by alpha users. Only a few weeks ago, Bowled also released its flagship game, ‘Cric5.’ The platform has been used by gamers around the world for over 400K hours, with an average playtime of 8 minutes per session.
It has been Bowled.io’s mission to pioneer a social gaming experience that allows users to earn rewards through their skill, knowledge, and passion. Bowled employs a unique game-play model on the platform, where users can engage in various game formats to play against their friends and other Bowled users from across the world. Through free-to-play and NFT-based play-to-earn game modes, the platform will also help the gamers to gain exciting social and economic benefits.
With NPL’s best designers, including concept designers who have worked with Marvel Studios and Hollywood, and Bollywood films, Bowled is bringing blockchain gaming to a new dimension. The acquisition of NPL will integrate the web3 layer into the gameplay, as Bowled.io has already integrated the blockchain layer into the game. As both companies share the same mission of inspiring millions of gamers to play and helping them onboard to web3, both will benefit greatly from this acquisition.
With Bowled.io, users can experience the new realm of blockchain gaming against each other with user-owned assets in the Play-to-Earn game formats. A key objective of the platform is to provide users with an innovative way to apply their knowledge and passion and earn exciting social and economic benefits.
