The Boston-based game studio Mystic Moose has officially launched their auto chess and deckbuilding hybrid game, Mojo Melee, into open beta for desktop web browsers. Mystic Moose raised $5 million in Seed Funding for Planet Mojo.
The game can be accessed by visiting https://play.planetmojo.io/ on a desktop web browser and creating an account. Players can then select their team of Champions to lead to victory in the battle for Planet Mojo.
Mojo Melee is a unique auto chess game that puts emphasis on strategy and careful selection of Champions, as well as game-changing Spellstones.
It is designed by a team of industry veterans from acclaimed studios such as EA and LucasArts, and features easy-to-understand components that require experience and knowledge to master.
Unlike most auto chess games, where both teams contain the same units, Mojo Melee is inspired by deck-building games, where experimenting with team choices impacts success.
Players will also be able to select their own Mojo avatar, small magical plant-based creatures that can hold Spellstones capable of turning the tide in battle with various support or offensive effects.
For digital collectibles enthusiasts, all playable characters, from Mojos to Champions, can be purchased as fully-fledged 3D digital collectibles on the Polygon blockchain.
As part of the Open Beta period, Planet Mojo is offering an exclusive Beta Bash mint featuring official Beta Chest Digital Collectibles (NFTs) full of in-game rewards.
Mike Levine, CEO of Mystic Moose, said: “Mojo Melee is the first step in building Planet Mojo’s interconnected ecosystem of fun, competitive gameplay experiences, where players have the option to own their personalized characters and items that they can bring into future Planet Mojo releases.”
“We can’t wait to see what players think of Mojo Melee’s open beta and for mobile players to get their hands on it very soon!”
The open beta for Mojo Melee will be available for players from May 5 until May 17. Mystic Moose will also introduce a mobile version of Mojo Melee for iOS and Android featuring full cross-play with the desktop version of the game. Beta dates for this version of the game are forthcoming.
