Fractal has joined the Polygon gaming ecosystem. The NFT gaming marketplace will provide a suite of developer tools that will allow game developers to integrate blockchain gaming features into their projects.

Announcing the partnership via press release on Tuesday, Fractal said that expanding into Polygon’s gaming ecosystem will help it accelerate user acquisition.

According to the announcement, Fractal will offer its product suite F Studio, which includes a launchpad, marketplace, tournaments, developer SDK, game launcher and Sign-in with Fractal service to up to 30 top blockchain games on Polygon, including Aether Games, Champions Ascension, Phantom Galaxies, Life Beyond, Sunflower Land, Blast Royale, and League of Kingdoms.

Fractal was founded in 2021 by Twitch co-founder Justin Kan. Since then, it has developed to become one of the leading web3 gaming platforms with blockchain game makers looking to leverage in-game marketplace APIs, fiat-on-ramp and NFT minting on demand. 

Fractal will tap into Polygon’s zero-knowledge-based scalability (launched in May last year), which is offered within the security parameters of the Ethereum network. The company believes that using such a blockchain platform is essential to building massive consumer-facing projects on web3.

Commenting on the partnership, Robin Chan, Co-Founder of Fractal, also said: “Inspired by Justin’s learnings from founding Twitch, Fractal’s mission has been to relentlessly support Web3 game developers with everything they need to build the future of gaming. From user acquisition to blockchain tooling to financial infrastructure, we put the framework in place so they can focus on successful game development. Partnering with Polygon Labs’ own efforts to provide a high-performance environment to its community will bring this future forward even faster.”

On the other hand, Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon Foundation, commented: “Fractal has emerged as a crucial hub for the discovery of blockchain games. By teaming up with Fractal and combining their impressive suite of developer tools with our own, we aim to make 2023 the year we bring Web3 gaming to the mass market.”

Last year, Fractal raised $35 million in a funding round backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Solana Labs, Animoca, Coinbase Ventures, and others.
