Autograph, the web3 brand co-founded by Tom Brady, revealed a new partnership with Internet Game to undertake the next phase of its association with global content leader Lionsgate.
Just in time for Halloween, the parties will release a new web3 experience linked to Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ iconic horror SAW film series. In the unique experience, a special 3rd season of Internet Game, players will have the chance to partake in three SAW-themed games across three days to win top prizes.
To play, gamers and fans must buy a SAW Games Pass on any of the following three marketplaces: GameStop NFT, Magic Eden, and Internet Game. Passes can be bought during the public sale on October 24 at 12 PM ET. A premature window sale will start on October 21 on GameStop NFT, where SAW Games Passes will be open for purchase. The SAW Games Pass will give users access to the first of 3 SAW-themed mini-games – Acid Bath, Blood Bucket, and Incinerator on the Internet Game forum.
The games will take place over 3 separate days: Monday, 10/31; Wednesday, 11/2; and Friday, 11/4 respectively. The metadata of the Games Passes will dynamically update to recall each player’s performance for each mini-game.
In the spirit of SAW, players who “survive” all three mini-games with the maximum amount of in-game health have the chance to win top prizes. These prizes include a combination of bespoke SAW NFTs with compelling experiences and blue chip NFTs. Top prizes contain an on-set tour of the subsequent SAW film, a Mutant Ape NFT, a winner holding their name emerges in the next SAW film, a trip to the new SAW: The Experience in London, a Doodles NFT, and much more.
Produced and shepherded from its beginning by Mark Burg and Oren Koules, the SAW franchise has grossed more than $1 billion at the international box office and is one of the longest-running horror franchises in history. Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures will release the next SAW installment theatrically on 27 October 2023.
Mark Burg and Oren Koules, reveal that they’ve been growing the world of SAW for 18 years and are very enthusiastic about this prospect to continue extending to new platforms like immersive interactive gaming experiences. The duo also mentions that with the latest installment of SAW arriving next October, their partnership with Lionsgate and Autograph is perfectly timed to entertain SAW’s global fan base in thrilling new ways while presenting the franchise to a whole new audience.
Dillon Rosenblatt, CEO, and co-founder of Autograph remarked that they are excited to expand their partnership with Lionsgate and work alongside Internet Game, GameStop, and Magic Eden to provide SAW fans unique, gamified digital collectibles and once-in-a-lifetime in-person experiences. According to the CEO, this collaboration, its mini-games, and the unique prizes will increase horror fans’ experiences and fetch multiple communities closer to their favorite film franchise in a new and exciting way.
This collection is part of a wider partnership between Lionsgate and Autograph, carrying fans closer to the world’s most legendary blockbusters and television franchises.
Lionsgate EVP & Head of Global Products & Experiences Jenefer Brown, mentions that working with Autograph over the last year has let them offer fans the chance to interact with the SAW franchise like never before. In addition, Brown emphasized that by bringing Internet Game on board as a partner for this next phase, they were able to deepen engagement through gamified NFTs that allow fans to become a part of the SAW franchise in a fresh experience-driven way, and they were looking forward to delivering SAW fans with new touchpoints to the films.
