Mythical Games announced that its flagship game Blankos Block Party, a title that uses non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to authenticate digital items, will debut on the Epic Games Store.

At the NFT NYC event, the company said it now has a chance to reach Epic’s 180 million players who have interacted with the store, and this will make Blankos, an online shooter and platforming game, more discoverable and easier to download.

Mythical Games is aiming for the mainstream for Blankos Block Party, as that is in keeping with the team’s pedigree, which includes veterans of gaming who have helped develop major franchises including Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, Marvel Strike Force, and Skylanders.

“We’ve been working with Epic on the policy changes for a long time now,” said John Linden, CEO of Mythical Games, in an interview with GamesBeat. “And so we are announcing Blankos is coming to the Epic Games Store. We’re very excited about this coming out. I think this is going to expand that audience in a short amount of time.”

Mythical recently noted that it had more than a million accounts created for Blankos Block Party, even without presence in the app stores. Linden said he was encouraged that a lot of women play the game, and he hopes that it will expand as the game gets a more mainstream audience.
