A new blockchain game to win (P2E) created to emulate the addictive success of the 2013 mobile phenomenon, Flappy Bird, has received support from some of DeFi's big names. Kain Warwick from Synthetix, Stani Kulechov from Aave, Tyler Ward from Barnbridge, angel investor Santiago Santos (formerly ParaFi Capital) and 0xmaki from Sushi joined the pre-seed round for this week's upcoming Fancy Birds, which will last in about a month... in the market. Fancy Birds is a single-player mobile game featuring 8,888 randomly generated NFT characters, initially loaded with special functions, who struggle through levels to earn their place as "the most fantastic bird in the nest".

Players who manage to get 40% of their Fancy Token (FNC) supply and upgrades will start the game in multiplayer mode, with planning, betting and tournaments. The team is in discussions to start it on the Ethereum NFT scaling layer 2 Immutable X project. Like a number of other potentially huge meme projects, Fancy Birds emerged from Twitter a few weeks ago after Illuvium founder Keen Warwick asked himself on Twitter, "Why doesn't someone make a piece dedicated to Flappy Bird's victory?" said: "It's uncomplicated, just addictive and fun, and has 100 million users a day on it. Turns out it was actually made by someone, and is now in beta."

Warrick joined as a consultant and helped organize the initial launch, and the team is now turning to Framework Ventures, Delphi Digital and a16z for the next round. The Snowball Project commemorates Barnbridge founder and Flappy Bird investor Pepe Non-Fungible, which was founded earlier this year by some of the same people and made millions within weeks before being converted to due to copyright laws. The Warwick Illuvium project itself is an upcoming exponentially growing P2E blockchain game. The ILV token price rose from $33 in June to $800, now has a market cap of half a billion dollars and 200,000 Discord members. Warwick also advised them to create community management based on the Illuvium and Synthetix models.

“The team is really accepting, they will be fully decentralized with the first DAO and boards with 100% of the profits (collected platform fees) will go back to the bettors,” he said. "We redesigned tokennomics to make more sense, so I think they're poised to be a really big player. Illuvium is an official partner and fans can use the 8-bit version of the game's main character, Rhamphyre, to play in Fancy Birds. Fancy Birds hopes to attract a large P2E community in countries like the Philippines. "Just like Axie Infinity, it's installed and mobile so anyone can play, so I expect lots of players to build," said Warwick.

Warwick, meanwhile, says the Iluvium team is preparing to release its first trailer that will show the world exactly how the game works. "Of course, we made a lot of noise, we have almost 200,000 people on Discord right now and everything is going really well. But the only thing we haven't shown is our gameplay trailer," he said. "There will be a lot of people waiting on the touchline and that will help us get them to cross the line and say, 'This is real.' It really happened. It's a triple game."
