Why I'm Bullish

Simple but engaging gameplay. The game is absolutely fun to play and very easy to learn. The progressions through each level are also challenging.
Experienced team. Having the man behind Candy Crush along with ex-Blizzard experts and other talented people in the video game and digital art industry makes the project highly likely to succeed because these are experienced and accomplished people, and they can execute.
Innovative approach. I like the idea of creating their own chain and focusing on mass adoption by making the user experience as seamless and secure as possible through the 2FA implementation.
Diverse set of tools for developers. The compatibility of the game service tools makes play-to-earn games easier and more efficient to market.
Playable demo / beta. The game is available to play at https://elementalraiders.com/
