Tamadoge Hype Continues As Mobile Games Expert Ozan Daldal Appointed Head Of Gaming
Tuesday, February 21, 2023 – Tamadoge (TAMA), a Web3 gaming project that allows players to earn while they play, has announced the appointment of Ozan Daldal as its new Head of Gaming.
Ozan’s appointment is the first major hire by CEO Jon Bishop. It comes amid a flurry of activity as Tamadoge readies to launch its latest arcade game, To The Moon.
Ozan joins Tamadoge with a mandate to develop the company into the leading Web3 gaming platform.
By leveraging their combined Web3 and gaming knowledge, Jon and Ozan aim to create a user experience that is superior to casual free-to-play games.
Tamadoge will appeal to a much broader audience than current Web3 games and onboard thousands of new gamers.
Ozan is to play a leading role in the team, delivering well beyond what was outlined in the whitepaper.
Underlining the project’s commitment to its product rollout, Tamadoge recently published a live public roadmap, so that anyone, whenever they choose, can check on progress and what is being delivered.
Ozan Daldal brings more top-notch industry expertise to Tamadoge
Ozan is an industry expert who will bring a wealth of experience to the role.
He previously held senior positions in crypto and gaming, having owned the strategy for Infinite Arcade. Ozan also previously worked as Head Of Publishing at Coda, where he collaborated closely with Jon.
In recent years Ozan has released 30 Web3 games as well as 15 on mobile, achieving installs far in excess of 100 million downloads.
‘Web3 gaming should be mainstream’
Speaking on the news of his appointment, Mr Daldal said: “I’m excited to build on the great work already started by the Tamadoge team. Web3 gaming should be mainstream and I want to make that happen.I look forward to helping to deliver an excellent gaming experience.
“Beyond just making fun games, I can’t wait to embrace the technological advantages such as ownership, new innovative monetization models and community-driven game development that is all so unique to the Web3 gaming environment.
“The roadmap that Jon and the Tamadoge team have planned out is an exciting and ambitious one. I can’t wait to get stuck in to help the team deliver it for the community, while helping build a truly world-class gaming team.
CEO, Jon Bishop added:
“I’m really excited to have Ozan onboard to lead on the gaming side of the business. Having worked with him before, I know he’s a talented and driven person who brings top-class expertise. Ozan will be pivotal to us delivering and growing the great gaming experiences outlined on the public roadmap.
The Third Arcade Game, To The Moon, Is About To Drop
The third game from the Tamadoge Arcade, To The Moon, is due to drop this week.
Super Doge saw more than 80 hours of gameplay in its first 24 hours, with players battling the evil SECKnights and collecting coins on Tama Island.
The simple and fun browser-based game features both free-to-play and play-to-earn options, with players needing to hold a Tamadoge NFT to access the latter.
Players use TAMA to buy game credits which then gives them access to games like Rocket Doge, where players must complete levels to move up the leaderboard for the chance to win rewards.
After this week’s To The Moon release, there are two more games from the Tamadoge Arcade to be launched in the coming weeks – Tama Blast and Tamadoge Run. Details of those game launches will be revealed soon.
Tamadoge Arcade is Just the Beginning
The Tamadoge Arcade is just the prelude before even more Tamadoge games go live. One of which sees players breed, feed and raise Pets before challenging other players.
Styled on 90s smash hit Tamagotchi, players will also use one of the Tamadoge NFTs to enhance their playing power, earning points to climb the leaderboard and then receive TAMA rewards.
Other projects being developed include exploring a new suite of 3D games as well as augmented reality (AR) opportunities, which could see the Pets leap off the screen and into the real world to explore and hunt for prizes.
The Tamadoge Pet Store is where players can purchase food, clothes, toys and other cosmetic items for their Pets.
As well as being an essential component of game mechanics that also allows the Pets fully customizable, the Pet Store has the beneficial effect of making TAMA tokens a deflationary asset.
All Pet Store purchases come with a 5% burn which will decrease the TAMA token supply, increase scarcity and drive up the price.
A strong team and a pipeline of popular games means Tamadoge boasts the utility to leave all other meme coins behind.
