Plug In Digital has been in the gaming industry for over a decade and has experienced significant growth in recent years. It offers a wide range of services but is probably best known for its two publishing labels – Dear Villagers and PID. Some notable Switch releases from those two labels in recent years include ScourgeBringer, The Forgotten City, Astria Ascending and Alba: A Wild Animal Adventure.
Now, the company has announced that it is working on a ‘Winky Partner Program’, making it web3 (or web 3.0) centered.
The project’s official website encourages companies to sign up for the following:
Winky Partners’ goal is to help companies create and successfully promote their ICOs and/or NFT projects.
Selected companies will be featured in The Winkyverse’s community of investors, advisors, partners and social media followers.
They will also benefit from 360° services with our partner agency Global UP, who helped us create and promote our ICO and NFT collection.
This goes back to blockchain-based products again, with the NFT and cryptocurrency at its heart (ICO stands for ‘Initial Coin Offering’).
At the time of writing, the responses to the Twitter post were mostly negative, as was the trend with announcements of this nature. Several game companies have been exploring these areas; Recent examples include Konami sells NFTand Team17 announced and then withdrew its own project after a backlash. SEGA seems to be taking a step back after previous enthusiasm, while Square Enix recognized the criticism but seems eager to pursue blockchain-based technology.
In this case, Plug In Digital appears to be working to promote the services and consulting platform for Web3, although it will still face resistance from fans and potentially partners. current business.
