Solana Game ‘Nyan Heroes’ Introduces Token Launch and Play-to-Airdrop Campaign

Nyan Heroes, a cat-themed shooter game, is set to launch its NYAN token on the Solana blockchain next week. The game, inspired by Overwatch and Titanfall, has gained popularity during its pre-alpha phase, ranking among the top 30 titles on the Epic Games Store with over 200,000 downloads.

The official NYAN token launch will take place on Tuesday, May 21 on the centralized exchange Bybit. Additionally, players who participated in the game’s play-to-airdrop campaigns will receive NYAN tokens as part of the airdrop initiative.

Players can earn MEOW and CATNIP points by playing the game or engaging in social media activities, which will determine their allocation of NYAN tokens upon launch. Details on how to claim the airdrop will be announced soon.

Developed by Singapore-based game studio 9 Lives Interactive, Nyan Heroes received $3 million in funding to support its launch, attracting over 100,000 players in its first week and a half.

Although the game currently does not feature NFT integration, the focus remains on gameplay. Players can enjoy the game without the need for cryptocurrency or wallets, even after the token launch.

Max Fu, the Creative Director and CEO of 9 Lives Interactive, mentioned that the game will have an in-game premium currency for non-crypto transactions. There will also be tokenized “awakened” items that can be traded, but interacting with the crypto aspects of the game is optional.
