Welcome to another edition of Super Sunday news with all the important news on blockchain gaming from this last week.
The momentum from last week continues this week, with several new alpha gameplays being released, new partnerships and fundings, new NFT launching and Mint, and much more.

As for the gamefi, we have Project Red inviting players to play and test gameplay for free. A couple of other games like Faraway Lands, BattleFly have alpha and early access respectively. There are also plenty of alpha gameplays already live and running so a lot is happening in Web3 games.
