Achieving a Childhood Dream with Wreck League and Mech Building


Episode 19 - Founder Insights Podcast

New Founder Insights episode with the founder and CEO of nWay - Taehoon TK Kim and their exciting new launch of Wreck League — a 3D mech-fighting game that will incorporate the Bored Ape Yacht Club and other Yuga Labs-created Ethereum NFT collections in its first season. 


We discuss how Wreck League is the Megaverse’s preeminent mech sports combat organization, known for its spectacular battles, robust customization, and competitive culture. 


nWay—which previously developed licensed “Power Rangers” games, and is a subsidiary of publisher and metaverse investor Animoca Brands—has licensed Yuga’s Bored Ape Yacht Club characters for Wreck League, along with the Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Koda creatures from Yuga’s Otherdeed NFTs, and the Bored Ape Kennel Club.

TK outlines how Wreck League matches are 1-versus-1 real-time battles in which players pilot custom-created mechs against one another in head-to-head combat with cross-play functionality, the action transcends devices, allowing you to compete on mobile, PC, or Mac. 


We explore the innovative approach around how 10 NFT parts create 1 mech NFT. Each part comes with its own stats and skills that determine how the mech plays in battle. Mechs can be disassembled, returning the 10 parts to the player allowing them to fully swap out parts to augment, customize, or rebuild their mechs to create an amazing "1.5 quadrillion" different combinations. 


TK talks about his entrepreneurial journey and how pioneering cross-platform and 1v1 only play has parallels to how Wreck League is bridging Web2 and Web3
