Homa, the technology lab that helps game creators unleash their creative potential and increase efficiency at all steps of the app production and publishing cycle, is investing in its community and web3 tools to unlock new opportunities for developers.
Building on its tech which has empowered more than 1000 game creators, Homa is preparing the release of its web3 tools suite that will allow developers to leverage its booming community and create new engaging gaming experiences.
Over the past few weeks, Homa has observed impressive organic growth of its community on social media (which has been multiplied by seven on their main channels) and unprecedented engagement rates, confirming the interest of the gaming community around Homa’s characters.
Homa announced they will allow players to own their characters, develop special features, use them across the different game experiences and have the possibility to transfer ownership to other players.
Homa gang characters
This is a great opportunity for game creators, as they will have a chance to expand their reach into this community, by launching games that feature interoperable game assets. Focusing on the game rather than the tech, developers will create even more new experiences with the “Homa Gang’s characters”.

The first collectable Homa is issuing will be Valentine, the female character from the 180 million downloads hit SkyRoller. She has become the most prominent and influential female game character on TikTok with 256k followers, driving a community of fans following her adventures and creating abundant user-generated content based on the character such as illustrations, split videos or cosplay.
Homa will issue 7000 Valentine collectables for free, aligned with their belief that building games and playing them should be accessible to anyone. The specifics of the collectable issuance are the following:
- Date: November 17th, 2022
- Price: Free (gas fee only)
- Supply: 7000
- Protocol: Ethereum
Evolution of gaming
Fabric VC Partner Max Mersch adds: "Homa is a powerhouse of scalable mobile game development, with over one billion downloads. The Homa engine has enabled developers and studios to produce hit games with a data-driven toolbox focused on optimising core game loops and monetisation. Having worked with the likes of Sorare, Decentraland, and Axie Infinity, we are convinced that introducing digital assets into mobile games is the next major evolution that will create entire virtual economies and bring the first billion users to Web3."
"The Homa team has already proven that they are building a fast-growing and sustainable business. They aren't adding web3 for the sake of it, but to keep on expanding the technology platform they offer to game developers. The focus remains the same: help creators author commercial hits, and players enjoy bigger and bigger experiences. The proof is already in the giant, passionate community they have grown in record time", says Jonathan Userovici, Partner at Headline, the VC fund that led the seed round for both Homa and Sorare.
