STATE OF THE GAME

The Emergents TCG Team
December 2, 2021

Hello, fellow Trading Card Game (TCG) players and crypto enthusiasts! 

Our team has been working diligently behind the scenes to build a best-in-class digital TCG experience. We have just started our Closed Alpha phase – more information on that is below. 

Today, we want to formally announce our roadmap to share our current progress, what to expect in the future, and how you can get involved!

We’ve come a long way

The Emergents Trading Card Game began with a novel idea: to revolutionize digital TCGs as we know them. From the minds of InterPop President and Publisher and creator of the Emergents Universe, Brian David-Marshall, and InterPop’s Lead Designer, Zvi Mowshowitz, who conceived what this could look like in a 2020 whitepaper. Determining that Tezos was an optimal choice for both its clean energy footprint and its proven upgradability, they began working with Kathleen Breitman (an early architect of Tezos) to create Coase.

Now, the game and team have built their own entertainment company, InterPop, where the Emergents TCG and comics series are in full swing. Helmed by Brian David-Marshall, the game development team is composed of fellow members of the Magic Hall of fame and veterans in the world of trading card games: Alan Comer, Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa, Corey Burkhart, and Leonard Perez.

What’s next

Now that we’ve begun our closed alpha phase, we want to share what our next few phases will look like. Please keep in mind that the dates of our phases are still tentative but we’ll be able to determine when the next phase begins based on feedback received in this phase.

How can you get involved?

If you haven’t already, we strongly encourage you to follow us on Twitter and join our Discord (we’re usually hanging about in there to answer any questions!) We’ll also be sending invites to members of the Discord community and the newsletter through the duration of Closed Alpha and Closed Beta. If you are interested in obtaining early access, join our community and hang out with us! We will be prioritizing highly engaged members of the community for access!

Make sure you’re following us on Twitch and tune in to our first livestream on December 9 at 12:00 PM ET (5:00 PM UTC) to learn more about the game and ask any questions you may have about the game or our roadmap. We hope you’ll join us!
