Xsolla founder Alexander Agapitov’s fund, Hand of Midas, invested $2.25 million in a game publisher with the Russian-speaking founders of OnlySpace. The platform attracted investment after the first release of the WarSpace game and earned more than $1 million in less than six months of existence. This was reported to RB.RU in the press service of the company.
The company will use the money to expand the publishing business as well as to develop web 3.0 gaming infrastructure solutions.
OnlySpace is a web 3.0 game publisher and game development platform that focuses on play-to-win projects where users can earn cryptocurrencies as well as collect and sell NFT assets.
The company was founded by serial entrepreneurs Alexey Kostarev and Dmitry Semiryazhko. Kostarev is a former founder of the game publisher I-Jet, which released The Happy Farmer on VK. Semiriazhko is co-founder of Clowder, a service for creating applications in corporate social networks, based on which more than 100 applications are made in the AppStore.
Since its inception, OnlySpace has already released strategy games WarSpace, OnlyRockets and UrbanSpace with turf grabbing and resource mining gameplay deployed on the WAX NFT platform.
The team is now working on five projects in which the publisher has invested more than $200,000.
