Heavy Competitor for Pokémon GO? A New Game, SpaceCatch, Enters the Augmented Reality Mobile Gaming Market!

The market for mobile games with augmented reality (AR) support has been dominated for several years by the well-known game Pokémon GO. 

In its time, it was a groundbreaking and unique game that attracted millions of players and created a global sensation. However, technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, and Pokémon GO no longer holds the unassailable position it once did. A brand-new mobile game, SpaceCatch, is now entering the market.

SpaceCatch, the new augmented reality mobile game

Like Pokémon GO,SpaceCatch also supports augmented reality. It is a mobile game set in the future when aliens invade planet Earth. 

However, it’s important to mention that unlike Pokémon GO, SpaceCatch fully integrates new advanced technologies such as blockchain and NFTs. These technologies may seem irrelevant to some, but the opposite is true. Thanks to blockchain and NFTs, SpaceCatch becomes a game that surpasses Pokémon GO in all aspects, along with other “traditional” Web 2.0 games.

Have you ever dreamed of earning money by playing a game? Or earning through physical activity? With SpaceCatch, it’s possible! The game implements play-to-earn and move-to-earn gaming concepts, allowing you to profit from both playing the game and your physical activity.

It’s also important to note that the game has an open in-game economy. This means that players own in-game items. In a classic game like Pokémon GO, for example, you don’t actually own anything, and the game has exclusive rights to modify, change, or delete in-game items, characters, or entire accounts. If you want to sell items or accounts in such games, perhaps due to a lack of time, your account is automatically blocked or frozen.

On the other hand, in SpaceCatch, nothing like that is prohibited. This opens up space for an entirely new category of players – so-called investment players. This group of people plays the game with the prospect of profit or investment. SpaceCatch is preparing various rare NFT items for them, which will generate passive income in various forms for their owners. Furthermore, the game redistributes earnings from various microtransactions back to the players, creating a sustainable “Web 3.0” concept.

SpaceCatch has been in active development for over a year, with its official launch expected by the end of this year. It is anticipated that this game will be a major attraction for players who favor AR games. The launch of its own gaming token, $CATCH, is currently in the works, and rare and limited NFT items are already available, which will have limited usability within the game.

You can follow their activity on the official SpaceCatch website, as well as on platforms such as Telegram, Discord, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Medium, or CoinMarketCap.
