What is Yokai Kingdom?
A fun-first, own what you earn, inclusive gaming experience for all!
Yokai Kingdom is an indie gaming startup integrating innovative new blockchain technologies with quality indie game development, to deliver rich, narrative-led experiences and... FUN 😊
Our inaugural title is Oni's Quest: a lore-rich, Roguelike Deckbuilder card game, inspired by Japanese mythology where players test their skills and strategy. Every journey is procedurally generated so no two play-throughs will be the same.
But how is this unique? By using blockchain technologies, anybody can now earn and own in-game digital assets, simply by playing the game. With traditional gaming ecosystems, in-game items - be they purchased by the player or unlocked through playing - can never be transferred or sold. You don't truly own them. Out-grown that epic sword you purchased or spent days (maybe weeks) grinding for? Too bad! We believe that gamers deserve better than this. Instead, in Oni's Quest, players will have the freedom to keep, gift or trade any of the in-game digital assets they own with other players.
Our goal is to create a fun, engaging, indie gaming experience, with strong story-telling at the forefront and utilizing the most modern developing internet technologies to develop exciting new and ever-evolving ways for players to engage with Yokai Kingdom's gaming universe.
The Yokai Kingdom team is a core group of devoted gaming enthusiasts and indie developers who are dedicated to realizing the goal of Yokai Kingdom, creating an innovative new gaming experience for the indie gaming community to enjoy.
The Yokai Kingdom community is a passionate and supportive group of people from all over the world who come together around our common vision and values of fun and inclusivity.
