Homa, the technology lab that helps game creators unleash their creative potential and increase efficiency at all steps of the app production and publishing cycle, is investing in its community and web3 tools to unlock new opportunities for developers.

Side note: Homa raises $100 million in series B financing.

  • The company recently raised $100M and is adding web3 tools to its tech stack, enabling game creators to provide new experiences to players and leverage their own versions of Homa’s characters across the different games.
  • Homa’s community around their characters has skyrocketed on social media over the last few weeks, becoming one of the largest communities of this kind globally.
  • The company is rewarding its community with free collectibles of Valentine, the game character with one of the biggest fan bases on TikTok and Twitter.
  • These collectibles will open a world where players will enjoy new gaming experiences with Valentine and other characters of the Homa Gang.

Building on its tech which has empowered more than 1000 game creators, Homa is preparing the release of its web3 tools suite that will allow developers to leverage its booming community and create new engaging gaming experiences.

Over the past few weeks, Homa observed impressive organic growth of its community on social media (which has been multiplied by seven on their main channels) and unprecedented engagement rates, confirming the interest of the gaming community around Homa’s characters. Homa announced they will allow players to own their characters, develop special features, use them across the different game experiences and have the possibility to transfer ownership to other players.

This is a great opportunity for game creators, as they will have a chance to expand their reach into this community, by launching games that feature interoperable game assets. Focusing on the game rather than the tech, developers will create even more new experiences with the «Homa Gang’s characters».

The Homa team has already proven that they are building a fast-growing and sustainable business. They aren’t adding web3 for the sake of it, but to keep on expanding the technology platform they offer to game developers. The focus remains the same: help creators author commercial hits, and players enjoy bigger and bigger experiences. The proof is already in the giant, passionate community they have grown in record time.
