Game HeroVerse (Hero Universe) — a Vietnamese NFT game project
HeroVerse game (Hero Universe) — a Vietnam NFT Game project (a game is built and developed on Blockchain technology) has successfully raised $ 1.7 million from leading investment funds in Blockchain and NFT such as DaoMaker; x21; AU21 Capital; Raptor Capital, etc.
HeroVerse is developed by Hiker Studio, one of Vietnam’s biggest online game companies with 12 years of experience. This game is built on combining the Match-three puzzle (connecting similar items to score points) and RPG (role-playing game). These two factors ensure that the game is easy to play, suitable for many players but still ensures an attractive tactical element.

Completely different from many NFT Games on the market today, instead of attracting players to play-to-earn (play for money), HeroVerse brings a “play-and-earn” model, balancing entertainment and profitability for the players.
Mr. Nguyen Tuan Huy, Founder and CEO of Hiker Studio, said that he has faith in this game because of two factors: graphics and gameplay. Accordingly, HeroVerse is one of the NFT games with beautiful graphic design, each character (hero) is designed in 2D and 3D, with the highest requirements.
In addition, being ruled by the straightforward match-three puzzle genre, HeroVerse will be easily accessible to many players. At the same time, the game still ensures the challenge when providing role-playing elements and tactical squads.
Mr. Ta Son Tung — featured on Forbes 30Under30 — Business Advisor of HeroVerse, has great expectations for the project. HeroVerse inherits the advantage of the long-standing Match-3 puzzle genre, which has a revenue of up to 6.8 billion USD in 2020 said, Mr. Tung. Meanwhile, the NFT Game market makes a great attraction from the community as the total transaction value continuously increases and is expected to grow further.
“These factors make us believe that HeroVerse will be a blockbuster project for the NFT Game market by the end of 2021,” said business advisor HeroVerse.
Besides being developed by a team of Vietnamese engineers with more than ten years in online games, HeroVerse is also supported by many famous companies such as RikkeiSoft — “Best 100 Venture Japan”, Top 10 ICT, and is one of the biggest technology companies in Vietnam with more than 1,200 employees and tens of millions of USD in annual revenue.
It is known that after a successful fundraising, Heroverse will launch IDO on two leading platforms — Red Kite and GameFi. IDO will start on September 23. HeroVerse is expected to follow the success of Axie Infinity.
According to statistics, the total value of NFT transactions on Blockchain platforms increased sharply, reaching 1.23 billion USD and 1.24 billion USD in the first and second quarters of 2021. The total market capitalization of NTF Game earns 7.63 billion USD in 2021, a sudden increase of 2300% compared to 2017 (Source: DappRadar and messati.io).”
