After much anticipation, TRON announces its partnership with Biscuit to build and distribute the next generation of blockchain games with the goal of accelerating adoption. TRON joins as a strategic investor to the promising blockchain game studio, widely celebrated for its chart-topping hit, Knight Story (previously EOS Knights).
The partnership will begin with the release of an upgraded version of Knight Story, built using the TRON blockchain. The game will be available for download on most iOS and Android devices and feature a revamped economy powered by TRX and TRC-based tokens (including NFTs). Players will accrue value from their gameplay, with even greater earning opportunities on the horizon as TRON continues to grow.
Biscuit chose to migrate its next iteration of Knight Story from EOS to TRON to take advantage of the TRON network’s performance, developer-friendly tools, and a robust ecosystem of applications. For the Biscuit team, building on TRON presents greater opportunities to create synergistic partnerships and attract the largest audience possible.
Jay Lee, CEO of Biscuit says, “We are very excited to partner with TRON and we’re eager to see Knight Story thrive on the TRON network. This collaboration will help us to realize Biscuit’s mission and continue to innovate games using blockchain technology.”
In addition to investing through the TRON Arcade fund, TRON intends to support the project as the game’s publisher. TRON plans to promote Knight Story throughout its expansive distribution network that includes partner ecosystems like BitTorrent and Opera.
Justin Sun, CEO of TRON & BitTorrent says, “There has never been a decentralized game of this scale before. Biscuit’s successful rollout of blockchain gaming for mainstream audiences marks a turning point for the space. I want to thank Biscuit for their hard work and passion for blockchain. Together, we will create a blockchain for everyone.”
