The Lost Glitches card game combines extensive role-playing elements with physical trading cards, with an emphasis on fun, replayability, immersive storytelling, and full digital ownership of collectibles. Its launch was expedited thanks to funding secured from the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure's $72 million German Bundestag gaming fund. The Fund was established to bolster the regional video game industry.

In selecting ImmutableX, a gas-free Ethereum Layer-2 scaling platform for their infrastructure and non- fungible tokens (NFTs), Honig Studios can offer players unparalleled usability and engaging experiences while retaining Ethereum -grade security.

The Immutable ecosystem now boasts some of the most popular NFT card trading games in the industry, including Gods Unchained , CryptoSpells, Goons of Balatroon, Cross the Ages, Deviants' Factions, which are proving to be one of the most resilient pockets of the NFT market at the moment. With NFT sales volume on ImmutableX for Q4 expected to outperform Q3 by an estimated 16%, according to CryptoSlam.

"The demand for NFT trading card games on Immutable is exceptionally high at the moment," said Andrew Sorokovsky , VP of Global Business Development for ImmutableX. "We're delighted to be adding another high-quality title to our line up. We are not only able to offer the widest range of TCGs, but we can provide a premium experience for players, delivering a versatile, engaging, and rewarding ecosystem full of fun and entertainment."

Lost Glitches offers a player-versus-player multiplayer mode, together with beginner-friendly tutorials, single-player campaigns, quests, and other competitive events.

As well as collecting cards to use in combat, players will also be able to level-up their characters with each battle and choose how to upgrade their skills tree to customize the gameplay. The game offers numerous ways to victory thanks to strategic allocation of skill points while cards can be used to create powerful combinations. This blend of accessibility and depth will ensure a unique experience for both casual and hardcore players.

"Beyond creating and immersing players in the unique and rich cyberpunk atmosphere of The Lost Glitches world, we also want to make education and onboarding of new players to web3 a fun and easy-to-understand experience," said The Lost Glitches founder Alexey Ivanov . "This is why we're excited to be partnering with IMX, a platform fully dedicated to gaming, as ImmutableX will help us to easily integrate these aspects."

Honig Studios has over 10 years of experience in game development. Its previous title — El Hijo - A Wild West Tale (2020) released for PC, Switch, Playstation, Xbox, Stadia, iOS, and Android — received several awards, including Gamescom Best Indie Game, a German Computer Game Award, and Apple TV Game Of The Year. Previous Honig Studios titles have also received critical acclaim and awards such as the Red Dot Design Award, a Digital Emmy nomination, the GIGA Mouse, and others.

Previously, Honig Studios successfully funded The Lost Glitches via a 10K PFP NFT collection that sold out in August, 2021, earning roughly $2.4 million at time of sale, as well as from secondary market royalties (roughly $5 million in total traded volume).

The first set of 400 cards for The Lost Glitches, called "Memories," will be dedicated to the lost memories of all Glitches. A first limited edition drop of booster packs will be released in December. The game will initially launch for PC and Mac on Steam and Epic Games Store in Q1 2024, with mobile and console versions soon to follow.

Commenting on the launch, Duncan Faithfull , EVP, and CCO at Quixant said "We believe our customers' focus should be on content, not developing hardware solutions to build them on. They need the freedom to develop content with the confidence that their solution is reliable and as powerful as their imagination needs it to be. That's why Quixant developed, IQ, IQON, and QMAX , its range or Gaming PCs designed to provide maximum performance based on budget, market, and product needs.

XPLA Governance Proposal Approved to Support Individual Holders with $XPLA Still on FTX Exchange

  • Proposal unanimously approved with a high voting rate reflecting the common view of Validators to protect individual $XPLA holders
  • The relief initiative represents a massive step towards support for $XPLA holders, helping to set a positive precedent throughout the Web3 industry
  • A total of 19,600,000 $XPLA to be transferred to a Smart Contract

-The XPLA Blockchain, a next generation of Web3 mainnet developed with gamers at the core of its design, today announced that a governance proposal to support individual $XPLA holders related to the FTX incident has been approved with unanimous consent.

Relief fund for $XPLA holders on FTX

The voting on the Relief Fund Support proposal was conducted for seven days from January 24 until January 31, 2023 , at 13:00 UTC . The vote was unanimous in favor of the proposal with three-quarters of eligible voters participating. Individual $XPLA holders could exercise their voting rights by delegating via proxy to Validators who were able to cast votes on their behalf. The voting process was fully transparent, and viewable through the XPLA Vault and XPLA Explorer advanced middleware based on the XPLA mainnet.

The high participation rate and unanimous voting outcome are interpreted as a strong reflection of the Validators' desire to support the individual $XPLA holders. The XPLA Team and XPLA Chain ecosystem participants have opened unprecedented possibilities for practical support which could give an example to the digital asset industry.

"The support for the XPLA community is phenomenal and we could not be happier that our ecosystem has approved this relief fund. These have been unprecedented times and our community has supported each other through it," stated XPLA CEO Paul Kim . "This is in stark contrast to the rejection of holder support votes that were attempted in other blockchain projects after the FTX incident. We are looking forward to starting the process of making our holders whole again."

The relief proposal includes a total of 19,600,000 $XPLA which will be transferred to the Relief Fund Support Contract assigned from the Reserve Wallet. XPLA Chain ecosystem participants will be able to check the status since the transferred $XPLA will be stored on the Contract. The transfer process is expected to be completed in March and the details will be announced through the official community channel of XPLA.

Claims for $XPLA from the Relief Fund will be when the $XPLA is claimable through a legal process with objective proof of ownership. XPLA team is also considering preemptively supporting individual $XPLA holders who have secured their proof of ownership if court proceedings are delayed. XPLA is the first blockchain to develop and approve a Relief Fund for individual holders concerning the FTX incident.

About XPLA

XPLA is the next generation of Web3 mainnet, developed with gamers at the core of its design. Based on the idea of "Explore and Play", XPLA is the newest innovation in the Web3 gaming space, using COSMOS SDK for optimization in partnerships with Animoca Brands, Xterio, YGG, Cosmostation, and Everstake.
