MetaZoo teams up with eBay for an exclusive launch

“For me and Steve Aoki, partnering with eBay was an absolute no-brainer,” Waddell said. Geek’s Lair. “eBay is a pioneer in the TCG world, and making a primary market sale of a very special set alongside eBay is making history.”

MetaZoo is a monster fighting game inspired by Pokémon and Magic: The Gathering. After building hype online through a Kickstarter campaign in 2020, MetaZoo released its first official set, Cryptid Nation, last summer. Since then, the game has reached a dedicated audience and continues to grow with each new set release.

“When you create something, you always hope for the best but prepare for the worst. There is nothing more horrible than spending your spark on something, only for it not to resonate with others,” said said Waddell. “Often it doesn’t even reflect the quality of your work or the depth of your creativity – there’s just a lot of noise and it’s easy for even the best creations to go unnoticed. In that sense, I ai and the entire MetaZoo team have been incredibly lucky. The hard work has paid off and we just have to keep working hard. The MetaZoo community continues to grow and amaze us.

The game features two players who make contracts with cryptids (known in-game as “beasts”) such as Bigfoot, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, and even Santa Claus to see who can lower life points. of the other player to zero first.

MetaZoo features card art inspired by early Pokémon TCG designs and resembles Magic in gameplay, with players tapping “aura” cards in order to play beast, artifact, spell, and potion cards. However, what most sets the game apart from its contemporaries are the “fourth wall” effects found on many of the maps.

These effects are based on real life, such as certain cards being more powerful when it’s raining, easier to cast when played in a real forest, or even being stronger if someone farted during a game. While that might sound absurd to some gamers, Waddell and the team at MetaZoo had one thing in mind when creating the game: pure, childlike fun.
