Filipino Gamers get first dibs on Farcana via Playdex, with chance to win up to 1.5M PHP prizes

Playdex invites PH gamers to playtest newest triple-A web3 game Farcana this weekend

Farcana is an e-sports-focused competitive team-based ability shooter game for PC, and together with this collaboration with Playdex, they are pleased to announce the first playtest!

This is an event that will be held globally with marketing campaigns targeted to multiple countries. One of the main choke points of game adoption across the globe - especially in the Philippines - is the lack of access to gaming PCs since high quality games require the most up-to-date computer hardware to keep up. Playdex, supported by Razer Gold, brings together gamers onsite multiple venues to be able to enjoy Farcana with the best graphics possible! By giving access to gamers and allowing them to compete for a $30,000 prizepool, Playdex aims to aid Farcana in spreading awareness around the Philippines!

About the Farcana Team

The Farcana team has their headquarters situated in Dubai, with seventy game developers that span across Warsaw, Belgrade, Minsk, and Bishkek. At the helm, the team is lead by Ilman Shazhaev as Founder & CEO, Alex Minkin as Game Director, George Dobrodeev as Chief Marketing Adviser, Arbi Tularov as Product Owner, Islam Shazhaev as Chief Business Development Officer, and Imam Idrisov as Head of eSport. They have multiple advisers such as Travladd Crypto - Co-Founder of KingFinance, Whit Gibbs - Co-founder of Compass Mining, Towqeer Gilkar - CEO of Emchain, Kapo - CEO of Kapo Capital, and Charles Read - Founding Partner of Rarestone Capital. Its notable partners include Arbitrum, Treasure, Biconomy, Galxe, Playdex and Yield Guild Games (YGG) to name a few.

What is the Farcana Playtest event?

This playtest aims to cultivate a dedicated early community of testers and players contributing to the project's development. Following the pre-production phase in 2022, they initiated the development of Farcana's serial version in January 2023. This playtest features a multinational activation of online and offline marketing campaigns that will be run in Vietnam, Philippines, USA, Thailand, Russia, UAE, Oceania and India. All the events will be held simultaneously at 11:00am - 8:00pm GST so that players from all over the world can interact and participate in the event! For the team at Farcana, player feedback is crucial as they continue to refine and evolve their development process and improve the game!

General Provisions of the Playtest

How does the Playtest system work?

The Farcana playtest system is fully automated.

That means you don't have to do anything manually (create a match or search for a match in the grid, contact your opponent, create a server yourself, etc.), our system automatically creates matches, waits for both teams to confirm readiness, runs the map, starts the server and waits for the game to end, after that it automatically takes the match results into the Game Rewards platform and promotes a winner in each category leaderboard. All you need to do is press PLAY and wait for new matches to appear.

Playtest games are played on the Cosmoport map


The Playtest organizers are the appeal authority for the playtest. An application can be submitted in the support section of the playtest.


There is a Single Player mode section in the lobby, where the player can play and practice with the bots regardless of the playtest time.
