First Playable and Tradable Fantasy Card Game on the Tangle
Digital collectible card games have been an acceptable addiction for at least 30 years: Wikipedia cites Dragon Ball: Daimaō Fukkatsu, released by Nintendo in 1989, as (one of) the first. In 2017, CryptoPunks and CryptoKitties were the first to take the concept into the world of NFTs; a plethora of other games have since joined them.
The latest to join Touchpoint Open Builders Program is Dark Mythos, a fantasy card game that combines aspects of roleplaying and adventure games, open-world concept video games, and adventure books with graphics that combine AI and human creativity.
Although the gameplay is yet to be finalized, Dark Mythos will give you the opportunity to play as one of five humanoid element-based races. Let's hear more directly from Dark Mythos.
Fantasy fans rejoice: digital card games come to Shimmer! To keep track of the development of Dark Mythos, follow them on Twitter or chat with them on Discord. We also recommend their website, where you’ll find more details on the Dark Mythos vision, roadmap, and more.
Dark Mythos joins the Touchpoint Open Builders Program, offering participants a community of like-minded builders, direct access to funding, experts, knowledge, and general support to launch and scale the next generation of decentralized applications and infrastructure on the Shimmer networks.

Shimmer is an L1 innovation network providing the core building blocks for a scalable, modular multi-chain architecture. Similar to the IOTA network, Shimmer is built on a UTXO-based parallelized, directed acyclic graph (DAG), guaranteeing higher scalability than conventional Blockchains. At the same time, Shimmer ensures interoperability and composability of L2 smart contract chains, capable of connecting any type of L2 smart contract chain anchored to it. With its unique tokenization framework, Shimmer will become a multi-asset ledger for feeless minting and transfer of native assets without middlemen or crippling gas fees.
The native token of Shimmer is SMR, which serves as the network’s economic backbone, facilitating value transactions and interactions within the Shimmer ecosystem. Shimmer users use the SMR token to launch new DeFi applications, DEXs, NFTs, DAOs, and other dApps.
