Game studio Roboto Games has raised $15 million with the participation of investors such as Ancient 8, Animoca Brands, Gumi Cryptos Capital, Harrison Metal Capital, Makers Fund and Merit Circle in the Series A round led by Andreessen Horowitz (A16z).
What Roboto Games Do?
The game studio aims to combine Web2 gaming experiences with Web3 in-game elements. The team, who wants to offer players a gaming platform where they can spend time with their friends, also plans to eliminate problems that prevent players from playing games with their friends. Initially focusing on the quality of the games, the team wants to bring Web2 experiences together with Web3 in-game elements. However, by not making the Web3 experience challenging, it adopts the vision of being a gaming platform that appeals to people from all audiences. Roboto Games CEO Curt Bererton said:
“We want to make sure that we have the game core solidified and it’s working well and it’s really fun first before we launch any sort of NFTs or tokens associated with the Project. Because, for example, if we change a big aspect of the game, we don’t want those NFTs to be invalidated by some design change that we make.”
Roboto Games will use the raised investment to raise the company’s capital, recruit staff in various roles, and create the studio’s second game. The company already has a game. Last Mage Standing is the company’s first game. Last Mage Standing is a fast paced war game. In addition to this game, the company is currently focused on their new game Foragers and Fighters. They define this game as a “Bite-size survival/crafting MMO where Minecraft meets Genshin Impact” . The first version of the game is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2023.
