Phewwww – let’s all take a collective deep breath. That was one helluva week!
There are times when not much needs to be said because everyone can pretty much feel the gravity of the situation at hand, and January had just those vibes at Photo Finish™ LIVE as the game’s imminent bright future became more in focus.
Between Twitter Spaces, much-anticipated pre-live launch features rolling out, and big things for Third Time Games being announced, we’ve got a lot to discuss this week before Saturday’s big races leave the gates.
Let’s get you caught up and registered, so you can live your best life this weekend.
On Tuesday, January 24, Third Time CEO and Founder Ian Cummings joined Real Third Web Twitter Spaces and its host Jonah Blake for a chat about what the company has planned in 2023, the gaming industry as a whole, and how to move the ball forward in the ever-changing crypto and NFT landscape.
Also appearing on the Spaces as a guest alongside Cummings was @MagicEden Chief Gaming Officer, @chrisakvn. Rewind the tape and give the bossman’s appearance a listen!
