MetaZoo Games LLC was founded by Michael A. Waddell in 2020 in New York City, New York, and consists of over a dozen people responsible for the ever-growing MetaZoo trading card game that initially launched through a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign🕊️ backed by 255 people with a pool of $18,249 in late 2020.
Over the course of the months since, the team has worked hard to ensure that other MetaZoo products and accessories were made available, and has made quick partnerships with companies and people such as Topps and Steve Aoki🕊️.
MetaZoo Games continues to expand its line of available products with haste, and has ambitious but reachable goals for many, many years down the road, including, but not limited to a Netflix series, a movie, physical coin dispensaries, and so much more.
As of November 2021, MetaZoo Games is now a team of over 30 people, and continues to grow its staff, collaborations and products at impressive rates.
The ultimate goal is to have 56 MetaZoo product-verticals over the course of 2022.
As of January 2022, MetaZoo Games consists of 35 staff.
On November 14, 2022, MetaZoo Games announced their new foundation, called The MetaZoo Foundation. To celebrate the foundation’s launch, they released a Thanksgiving promo card which was drawn in part by PONCHO, and in part by Akara; who is Gary and Thuan Haase’s daughter; creators of Autism Instruct, who have become the inaugural member of The MetaZoo Foundation. $50,000 was raised by MetaZoo fans around the world through the sale of this promo card, listed at $5 on the MetaZoo Marketplace website.
As of November 2022, MetaZoo Games consists of over 40 staff.
The MetaZoo Trading Card Game is based around cryptids and folklore from around the world. The first set, named Cryptid Nation, was released on July 30th, 2021 and focuses on cryptids and powerful artifacts based out of the United States of America. Future sets will focus on cryptids from other countries around the world, while new sets will also be created based out of the US as well.
