Achievement Unlocked! Pocket Gems and Voodoo Manufacturing Partner to Bring You War Dragons

Gamers out there are very familiar with achievements or trophies or whatever means of reward video game publishers have given players over the years. A high gamer score is great for bragging rights, but to get something physical? Well that’s some truly next-gen stuff!

From the Press Release:
Pocket Gems, a leading developer of original mobile games and entertainment, announced today a partnership with Voodoo Manufacturing, the software-optimized 3D printing manufacturing company. Through the partnership, War Dragons players can win limited-edition 3D figurines of playable dragons from the game.

“We’re constantly looking for unique new ways to engage with our players, and we’ve had our eye on 3D printing for a while,” said Chris Luhur, Director of Marketing at Pocket Gems. “The idea of rewarding players with real-life prizes for winning something in a virtual world is a new concept for mobile games, and we’re really excited to try it out.”

To be eligible for a statue, players must perform well and earn prizes throughout the game’s winter 2017 season. Winners will receive a code to redeem a rare statue of Kinarra, a fan-favorite playable dragon from the game, via the War Dragons shop.

War Dragons is a visually stunning 3D real-time strategy game that puts players in control of the ultimate dragon army. Players can join a guild, help their teammates launch attacks, and hold off enemy raids in true real-time fashion. Since launching in April 2015, War Dragons has seen:

  • 1.3 billion battles fought.
  • 49 million dragons hatched.
  • 75 million cumulative hours played.

“We’re seeing 3D printing transform the way promotional products are designed and made, especially in gaming” said Max Friefeld, Co-Founder and CEO of Voodoo Manufacturing. “We’re excited to help Pocket Gems bring War Dragons to life with these one-of-a-kind rewards for their players.”

Voodoo Manufacturing created 1,000 6″ x 6″ x 6″ statues using 3D printing technology. The company specializes in small-batch production of plastic parts, ranging from 1 to 10,000 unit runs at injection molding costs.
