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.

Assembly is a scalable multi-chain network for sharded, composable smart contracts. It will deliver flexibility, scalability, and interoperability, and is a smart contract network for mainstream innovation and mass adoption. It does so by offering inexpensive, fast, and secure smart contracts, trustless and feeless smart contract interoperability, full customization and composability of dApps, compatibility with Ethereum virtual machine, and other benefits.
In Assembly, anyone can launch their own smart contract chains with the flexibility to customize fee and incentive structures. The chains are overseen by permissionless and decentral dynamic validator committees of nodes that execute and validate smart contracts; these validators are assigned to their chains by a root chain through a marketplace, and the validators are rewarded with the network’s native token, ASMB.
