GAMEE is a high-engagement, play-and-earn mobile gaming platform that rewards players for skill and effort. GAMEE’s products Arc8 and G-Bots are the new frontiers of casual mobile gaming in the metaverse, powered by the GMEE token, the utility token that enables access, action, and governance of the platform.
In addition to dozens of original casual games, GAMEE launches games in collaboration with internationally famous brands including NASA, Guinness World Records, Manchester City Football Club, ATARI and Cool Cats.
GAMEE was founded in 2015 in the Czech Republic, and is now part of Animoca Brands family. It has over 40 million registered users and has served over 5.7 billion gameplay sessions.
Our mission is to recognize and reward players skill, effort and loyalty and introduce the value of blockchain to mainstream gamers.
GAMEE was founded in 2015 to explore how new technologies can affect the formation of communities in the gaming space. Since 2020 we’ve been using blockchain technology to power our broader ecosystem, including NFT avatars, a governance token, and blockchain competition for complete trust. We believe that blockchain as a supporting technology can give power back to player communities and let them own a real stake in the game worlds that they help build. We believe that establishing ownership of digital assets in a way that isn’t controlled by the developer in any central way can fundamentally change the relationship between developers and players.
We want to use these mechanisms to transfer as much control over the game ecosystem to the community as possible. The last few years have seen a lot of exciting predictions about the eventual promise of bringing distributed blockchain to gaming and GAMEE is focused on delivering it. We are interested in what happens when you put these principles to work in simple experiences and then let the community participate in how they grow from there.

Our Story

Bozena Rezab was working at a major technology company when the world of online video was first starting to genuinely change from people streaming themselves playing video games. She was fascinated by the communities that began to crop up around this new experience, altering the way that players interacted with their games and with each other.
She met GAMEE co-founders Jan Castek, Miroslav Chmelka and Lukas Stibor, tech entrepreneurs, who had become interested in developing a new social gaming platform. Together, they founded GAMEE in 2015 to explore how new technologies can facilitate the formation of communities in the gaming space.
In 2019, the team encountered blockchain technology used in games and instantly knew that this new idea could fundamentally alter the relationship between players, games, and developers. By establishing ownership of digital assets in a way that wasn’t controlled by the developer in any central way, it could empower the players to take ownership of the ecosystem in ways that wouldn’t have been possible before. GAMEE decided to join Animoca Brands, a leader in the blockchain gaming space and was acquired in 2020 and launched GMEE token, Arc8 and G-Bots during 2021.

Why Blockchain?

A blockchain is essentially a database maintained by multiple independent actors rather than one single actor. The major difference between a traditional database and a blockchain-powered database is decentralization: the owner of a traditional database has responsibility for maintaining that database, and thus the power to change the accounting within. When the responsibility for maintaining a database is shared, no entity holds that power. The idea of decentralization holds special resonance when it comes to gaming.
Gaming has long been a space where a sense of ownership is shared between the developers and players, whether that is as simple as a fanbase that becomes invested in a game’s plot and characters or as thoroughly enmeshed as a platform driven entirely by user-created games. And yet as this relationship has grown more sophisticated over the years, ultimately the users operate on good faith: developers can change anything at any time, and the users ultimately have only the power to spend money and time, or not. Independent databases maintained by both players and developers offer a new way to conceive of that relationship. They allow players to maintain control of the assets that they earn in game and to do with them what they wish. That might mean moving them elsewhere in the same ecosystem or trading them for tokens that can be used in other games. It means, inevitably, that the developer must give up a sense of agency and transfer some of that to players. It can be a scary prospect, but that’s what makes it exciting.
In GAMEE’s platform, players can take their winnings out of the ecosystem and spend them somewhere else if they wish, or bring in digital assets from other projects and use them to access special features within GAMEE.
The blockchain is not an answer for all games. The modern gaming industry grew up alongside a different paradigm, and that paradigm serves those games well. At GAMEE, we believe that the actual capabilities of blockchain-enabled gaming can only be seen in experiences built from the ground up around the principle of decentralization, and that the games produced will wind up looking much different than what we may have guessed from the outset.

About Arc8

Arc8 launched as a mobile gaming app with crypto rewards, where players can bet on themselves either in head-to-head competitions or larger tournaments with a unique set of high-skill, hyper-casual games that test your reflexes and strategic thinking.
The vision of Arc8 is to become the Arcade of the Blockchain. A virtual arcade house where people play, compete in hyper-casual games, get rewarded, and interact with each other. A place that connects gamers, brand sponsors and partners, and game creators.
A virtual arcade, that, thanks to blockchain technology, is owned and governed by the community.

About G-Bots

G-Bots are GAMEE’s first Non-Fungible Tokens, representing a step towards a more complex gaming ecosystem. An NFT is essentially a unique identifier that can be attached to a digital good. This identifier is verified on a distributed blockchain, making it effectively impossible to forge. Typically, these have been used in a fairly straightforward fashion, establishing ownership of digital art.
At GAMEE we were interested in the idea of NFTs, but thought they could be used in a much more complex way than we have seen so far. That’s why a G-Bot is not simply a digital image, it is a complete digital avatar with a unique appearance and stats that could be applied to a wide range of games. They were intentionally built with flexibility in mind: our current games only use a subset of a given G-Bot’s stats, but they already have more than that coded in.
G-Bots are currently used to unlock exclusive games within the Arc8 app, where players can use their individual characters to compete in experiences tailored for G-Bot Owners. This is a kind of proof-of-concept for us, and we are currently working on a number of different experiences that make use of the G-Bots as well. The idea is that you will be able to take your same G-Bot through multiple experiences, both created by GAMEE or sitting within existing metaverses. It is possible towell upgrade them and breed them to create new G-Bots. Because G-Bots are blockchain assets, they can be freely traded between players completely outside of the GAMEE ecosystem. And while we have plans to support them through multiple experiences, theoretically there is nothing stopping third-party developers from using them as well. That is the essence of an asset held on a distributed blockchain: it belongs to the holder, not the platform.

About Governance & Ownership

The GMEE token that underpins the GAMEE ecosystem is also a governance token, offering an unprecedented level of participation and control for GMEE holders inside the GMEE Ecosystem.
In the crypto world, governance tokens can create what are called “DAOs'' or Decentralized Autonomous Organizations. What this means is that there are binding agreements built into the technology that allow a group of people to run an organization without having to rely on central management. While GAMEE is not a DAO in a strict sense, we are borrowing some of those principles to ensure that our community has true democratic power when it comes to the overall direction of the platform.
GMEE holders will be able to vote for development priorities, providing direction to the team about what games or features to make next. This could cover anything inside of the Arc8 experience, for example whether contests will give more rewards to those at the top or aim to spread the pool around more evenly. They will also be able to vote on third-party games to be hosted in the Arc8 ecosystem, allowing external developers to publish into the ecosystem with a binding vote so long as they have the support of the community.
This gives GMEE holders an unprecedented level of control over the character of the arcade and the broader GAMEE ecosystem. They can decide to push the arcade towards e-sports or towards more casual competition depending on how the community develops.
