As April ended, so did the ultimate battle between four of the best Kryptomon trainers during the first-ever Global Game Night finals and semi-finals live stream event. This event marked a significant moment in the history of the KMON Saga.
But how did the Global Game Night concept come to life? It all started back in December 2022 with our Italian group as it was the first community to participate in an online player-vs-player event for KMON players. This event marked the beginning of what just a few months later would have become a global event, as players battled to showcase their hard-earned skills. The first-ever Italian local KMON Live Finals show was held, providing players the opportunity to connect on an online call and meet their fellow competitors. The overwhelmingly positive feedback and engagement from participants solidified the potential of this event and its scalability to other KMON communities worldwide. In the following months, communities from over 20 countries spread across the globe began to participate and compete in monthly localized events.
Being amongst the top trainers of your local community Game Night now held great significance as the top four KMON trainers from each community earned a qualification spot in the Global Game Night Event. The competition saw 40 of the best KMON trainers from around the world come together to battle for the title of Global Champion. The event featured a group phase lasting five days and an initial knockout phase to the semifinals lasting three days, providing a challenging climb to the top. After much determination and fierce competition, the four trainer names who made it to the Global semi-finals were ultimately revealed.
The stakes were high as all four competitors battled it out for the title of the first Global Game Night Champion. The winner of this epic battle was Temir, a skilled Kryptomon trainer from the Brazilian community.
But the excitement didn't end there. During the live stream of the event, the hosts Umberto (CEO & Founder) and Brian (SVP of Game Development) shared three amazing announcements that had all KMON fans buzzing. The first announcement made during the Global Game Night finals and semi-finals was a game-changer. The Kryptomon Company is now known as Pink Moon Studios, with a new and fresh approach to our game saga, now called KMON Saga (instead of Kryptomon). The rebranding comes with a strategic decision to allow the company and its games to reach new horizons. From a visual point of view, the new fresh, adventurous, and playful new brand identity is sure to delight existing KMON fans and attract new players to the game.
The second announcement was the release of the Free-to-Play game mode for KMON: Genesis! This announcement was met with great enthusiasm as fans of the game can now enjoy playing it for free by generating three synthetic Kryptomons at no cost! This move will surely attract even more players to the game and foster the growth of our community!
The third and final announcement was the Community Preview Events. This event will now allow players to register and enter our MMORPG (currently under development), KMON: World of Kogaea. During such events, players will be able to explore this world we are building, meet other trainers, and complete thrilling quests to receive unique NFTs. This event will surely be a fantastic opportunity for fans of the KMON Saga to get an exclusive sneak peek of what's to come!
