The Hottest NFT Games That You Should Be Playing
NFT Gaming Season Is Upon Us
We’ve been continuously leaving you all breadcrumbs on the NFT gaming sector. In order for a game to be truly successful, the gameplay must take precedence over every other attribute. Being a gamer myself, I’m only interested in playing games that I enjoy. Play To Earn has been revolutionary and is now reaching mainstream audiences around the globe. However, Play To Earn will only be successful if the games are able to maintain the same fun factor as regular games.
The good news is that developers are quickly catching on and P2E gaming is constantly evolving. There are P2E games on the market that have managed to nail the fun aspect. Today, it is my goal to highlight a few of them.
The first game that we will cover today is Thetan Arena. Thetan Arena is a team-based battle royale style, strategy game where players have the ability to form a team and battle others for tokens and rewards.
The team behind Thetan Arena is WolfFun. They also made Heroes Strike (you should try this game if you have not already) which has over 5M downloads. So, the team is very experienced.
Apart from the NFTs, Thetan does have the Thetan Token (THG) that will act as the in-game free to earn currency. They also have the Thetan Gems that players can use to stake and upgrade their NFTs.
The Thetan Token has absolutely skyrocketed since its launch.
Thetan Arena recently launched their open beta, and gained 100k players after only four days. I had the opportunity to participate, and I would highly recommend giving it a try.
The gameplay footage looks absolutely amazing.
There are three different classes of heroes. Each class is characterized by signature skills and statistics. The three classes are:
You can see footage of tanks battling below.
I've been waiting on the P2E version of a team battle royale game comparable to League Of Legends or DOTA. Thetan Arena is in prime position to be the first esports NFT game to go mainstream.
Thetan also has prominent investors (including Animoca Brands).
Thetan Arena is housed on both the Binance Smart Chain and KardiaChain.

Spider Tank is the result of a collaboration between Gamedia Games and Gala Games. Spider Tank is a PVP brawler where players can customize their tanks and weapons, then battle each other in the Spider Tank arena.
Gala Games has been on fire for the past few months. This is largely because of the hype around their highly anticipated Fantasy RPG game, Mirandus. However, it looks like they’ve found a treasure with Gamedia and Spider Tank.
Gamedia Games is the primary developer of Spider Tank. They have created over 150 games, and the CEO has been in the industry since 1998.
Gamedia has also been nominated for multiple awards.
Spider Tank is both free to play and P2E. Players are able to purchase and trade different NFT skins, tanks, and weapons.
Last month, Gala Games announced the closed beta for NFT owners. I have had a chance to test out the gameplay, and the fun factor is definitely there.
Check out the footage below to see how fluid the gameplay is.
The bodies, skins, and weapons can be purchased from the Gala Games store with $GALA tokens. Tanks are currently sold out.
Arc8 is a series of competitive puzzle games that are housed on the Gamee platform.
Arc8 has a strong user base (over 500k downloads on Google Play)....and the gameplay is absolutely amazing. I downloaded the app and played for a few hours. It is to be noted that in order to participate in any tournaments, you must have some GMEE tokens on hand.
Arc8 is powered by the GMEE token. The GMEE token sits on Polygon. GMEE has multiple utilities:
The company, Gamee, has been around since 2014, and has a strong team behind it. The CEO, Bozena Rezab, was previously a Product Activation Lead at Google.
Arc8 is experiencing massive growth. The user base grew 300%+ in just 24 hours.
You can see the gameplay of one of the mini games below.
The founder of the Arc8 partner (Animoca Brands) and NFT gaming genius, Yat Siu, weighed in on the success of the GMEE token.
Arc8 also randomly distributes rewards to players that make the leaderboard.
I have no doubt that NFT gaming will continue taking the world by storm. One thing that all of these games have in common is that the teams are very experienced.
As long as gameplay continues to be the top priority of the NFT gaming studios, the bullishness around this sector will continue to grow. I hope to see more games at the forefront that makes fun a top priority.
The main goal is to ultimately transition from Play To Earn to Play And Earn.
