New York, NY (November 2, 2020) - Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and entertainment producers — today announced a partnership with Karma the Game of Destiny® — the first truly immersive game for adults to meet and socialize in both the digital and real worlds. Through the terms of the partnership, the new Atari Token (ATRI) will be integrated into the innovative Karma the Game of Destiny social-eco platform, where like-minded players can meet for various activities “In the Real” as well as take journeys “Into the Digital” for an immersive entertainment experience without borders. 

Karma the Game of Destiny is a living and breathing entertainment experience framed as a multiplayer game / televised game show; it’s a world of portals which lead players to both real and virtual locations. Depending on what a player is looking for, they begin their journey by choosing one of three doors: Values, Compatibility, or Intimacy. The main objective of Karma the Game of Destiny is to have fun and form connections with others — whether short and sweet or long and enduring. 

The Atari Token will be integrated throughout Karma the Game of Destiny to form an ERC-20 foundation for in-game purchases. The Atari Token may be used for Ambassador payouts as well as accepted as a form of payment for Karma the Game of Destiny’s very own Karma Play Tokens, which are used to purchase additional lives and game content. 

“From its inception, the Atari Token was designed as a cryptocurrency for various forms of digital entertainment, from purchasing legacy media digitally to being used as a virtual currency in new and innovative virtual spaces,” said Frédéric Chesnais, CEO of Atari. “Karma the Game of Destiny is an exciting new addition to our portfolio of partners lining up to support the Atari Token when it comes to market this November.”

Rene Reyes, the inventor of the Game and Chairman of Karma the Game of Destiny, said, “Atari is at the heart of the video game experience. It’s so exciting to launch our new world with Atari being part of our in-game currencies and cross platform ecosystems. Karma’s affiliate and portals to other worlds and experiences makes this partnership incredibly valuable to our Mission. We are where you meet your friends to go have some fun in a multitude of Worlds.”

CEO and co-founder, Robert Porter said, “This is a true game changer, and we are excited by the energy that is coming together to build something as novel as this.” Robert’s background is in fintech as well as cryptocurrency; he is also the co-founder of Volatile, a crypto investment company. “With Karma we’re launching something right out of science fiction for the next generation. Karma the Game of Destiny partnering with Atari Token is exactly the right move for us.” Karma the game of Destiny is currently looking at a December 1st soft launch and will continue to work with Atari to integrate their ATRI throughout the platform into 2021.

Karma the Game of Destiny features Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality as well as “real” world venues, events, travel, media experiences like concerts and movie showings, and even facilitates online and offline meetups and dates. The host of the show, an AI named Guru, encourages players to socialize and try out new activities with others, while also protecting them from misbehaving players and potential scammers. Everyone can opt into the global game show or remain private in their journey. To learn more about Karma the Game of Destiny, please visit the official website here: https://www.karmathegame.guru.
