IndiGG X META11: Redefining Fantasy Cricket
IndiGG, world’s biggest web3 gaming DAO, is thrilled to announce its groundbreaking partnership with Behaviol, the studio behind META11, a unique, lore-based AI-powered cricket game. META11 Fantasy, the first game mode release, is where cricket enthusiasts and gamers of all skill levels can find fast, fun and free immersive experiences. It prioritizes delivering quick matches, allowing players to immerse themselves in the action and explore the exciting world of eSports.
Renaissance of Fantasy Cricket: META11 Fantasy
“For too long, fans have had to pay to participate in their favourite sports and cricket is no exception. When we founded Behaviol, our vision was to create an immersive experience where fans are rewarded for the time they spend enjoying sport.”
Krishan Deegalla, CEO Behaviol
With META11 Fantasy, launching 26th September, for the first time ever, sports fans can use their knowledge of cricket to play in AI-powered tournaments and win without being charged a rupee. META11 leverages pioneering Artificially Intelligent models, developed in-house, to create digital athletes who have the ability to continuously learn how to play and respond to the game.
Approaching gameplay in this way, allows players to manage their avatars on a more emotional level, experiencing the excitement and the pressure of being a coach competing against other avatars in one-on-one cricket matches. This level of engagement allows for a more realistic gaming experience, as avatars respond to crowd reactions and emotional pressure – just like real athletes.
These athletes are not just digital avatars; they symbolise excellence, ambition, and the future of sports. With these players, visitors to META11 Fantasy will preview what they will eventually be able to own, train and compete with. Moreover, in the future, players will also eventually be able to transverse into other sporting platforms within the Behaviol ecosystem.
Behaviol is opening “Fantasy Cricket” up to a wider audience
“Behaviol is entertainment. It’s storytelling. It’s games. It’s digital artistry. It’s an emotionally engaging experience. And it’s new technologies.”Chris Ebeling, Chief Creative Officer, Behaviol.
Behaviol, a creative studio, is revolutionizing the world of sports entertainment through this flagship game. This innovative endeavour was co-founded by Krishan Deegalla and entrepreneurs Dinuk Jayasuriya and Reza Magdon-Ismail, alongside cricketing legend Kumar Sangakkara. Behaviol's primary goal is to usher in a fresh era of sporting entertainment.
Legendary names are back to set a new example in the Fantasy Cricket
The META11 project has not been brought to life by any rookie. The holder of the second-highest runs scored in cricket history, Kumar Sangakkara, is the co-founder of this revolutionary game and it’s also being backed by the legendary Indian Cricket Coach, Ravi Shastri.
We are incredibly excited to see such legends in cricketing history embracing emerging technology to open one of the most popular sports on the planet to an even wider audience. Even better, developing a game that brings us more immersive cricket fantasy experiences whilst being free to play.
Sangakkara collaborates with Dr. Dinuk Jayasuriya, Reza Magdon-Ismail, and Krishan Deegalla in the establishment of Behaviol, an game studio startup based in Sydney. In a recent funding round, Behaviol secured a substantial investment of USD 2.5 million, spearheaded by the Singaporean investment powerhouse, Hangar X, with participation from various prominent figures in the sports and web 3.0 sectors.
Commenting on the game, Behaviol CEO Krishan Deegalla states, “META11 is a paradigm-shifting technology that not only introduces players to a new method of gaming but creates a future-focused pathway that brings artificial intelligence to esports with cricket and beyond.”
