Dogs Flooding Not Only Crypto, but Blockchain Gaming as Well: First Petaverse Backed by Ubisoft

The developers of DOGAMÍ claimed to create the first-ever petaverse and received $6 million in funding from Ubisoft.

Real-time pet simulation video games were a huge hit in the 2000s. One of the main reasons for this was their availability on the highly popular, best selling portable console, the Nintendo DS. Of course, the DS was loaded with a huge number of popular game series such as ‘Super Mario Bros,’ ‘The Legend of Zelda,’ ‘Mario Kart,’ and many more, however, perhaps surprisingly, one of the big system sellers was ‘Nintendogs, a game where you raised a virtual puppy in real-time.  

This year, the concept has returned thanks to blockchain technology. Though DOGAMÍ hasn’t quite defined the genre yet, they claim to have created the first-ever petaverse, and have received $6 million in funding from Ubisoft. Among their other backers were Animoca Brands and The Sandbox, alongside others.
