Manila, Philippines, September 3, 2021 – With plans to go international in a month’s time, KOGs SLAM! by RFOX Games is now undergoing a closed beta release test, with 5,000 early participants who will test the gaming user interface to compete and win $RFOX tokens and prizes. RFOX Games also plans on collaborating with Yield Guild Games (YGG), opening its play-to-earn model to the large NFT marketplace.
The beta trial will test its free play-to-earn gaming model for a month before the game officially becomes released to the international public. Even though 5,000 first testers will be allowed in originally, it is expected to be oversubscribed, what with the popularity of NFT games on the market.
With easy-to-learn gaming mechanics, KOGs SLAM! features popular NFT collections called KOGs (Keys to Other Games). These are prizes that can be won in-game, and showcase limited edition collectibles, such as Stan Lee’s Marvel superheroes from the Bad Days NFT collection. While sale for it ended last August 28, interested buyers can still purchase them here.
Ben Fairbank, RFOX Games’ CEO and Co-founder of RedFOX Labs, has said that the point of the game is to introduce a free play-to-earn system to millions of users in Southeast Asia in order to help people hit hardest by the recent onslaught of economic turmoil. Through today’s current easy access to mobile phones, it gives many the opportunity to get a piece of the growing information tech world’s profits and thrive in spite of lockdowns and stay-at-home measures preventing some from working.
“It is highly likely that this game could reach millions of users across Southeast Asia and beyond when you consider that a free play-to-earn model would be welcomed with open arms by those most impacted by COVID, with many having lost their jobs,” said Fairbank.
“We had an ambitious plan and model, and we are finally ready to go to the closed beta for the play-to-earn. We are thrilled to welcome YGG and Real Deal to the trial who can help us gain exposure to a wider audience of play-to-earn gamers. We are thrilled to have organizations of this caliber join the trial.”
Also, from Yield Guild Games, “We’re happy to be working with RFOX GAMES to bring YGG members into the KOGS SLAM closed beta. This gives an opportunity for our underserved members to start earning while they move up our scholarship waitlist.”
“Being able to start playing for free and move earnings directly to GCash will massively increase play-to-earn adoption in the Philippines,” said their Co-founder, Gabby Dizon.
