  • Mech.com is also developing an arena battle game that implements NFTs and blockchain tokens in a play-to-earn ecosystem.

Shima Capital is leading Mech.com’s $6 million seed round, with participation from Polygon, Big Brain, Anti Fund, Cryptology, Master Ventures, BreederDAO, MetaVest, Andromeda VC, Pulse Ventures, and Gumi Ventures.

Mech.com is a blockchain game company that is currently developing its first version of a match-3 game in which players can earn the in-game currency called “ore”, and subsequently, the tradable cryptocurrency, $FORGE.

The game development company is also developing an arena battle game that implements NFTs and the abovementioned blockchain tokens in a play-to-earn ecosystem. Players can battle others in community-owned arenas.

Co-founded by Trey Smith, who serves as Mech.com’s CEO, and his partner, Nik Rudenko, Mech.com is the third gaming company that the two have founded, the other two being Buildbox and KayaBit.

Last year, Kyle Klemmer joined the team as COO. He has an established background in marketing and his extensive network in blockchain technologies brought key investors and advisors to the table, including Justin Kan (founder of Twitch), Matthew Morgan, Josh Meier (director of Andromeda Capital), Bradley Townsends (founder of Latitude Services, and HuK (head of esports for the Kraft Group).

Mech.com is planning to launch its in-game currency token, DAO token and staking pools to provide liquidity. The company will also be launching its own NFT marketplace where users can view all the in-game NFTs they own and list them for sale. 

After closing its seed round, Mech.com will begin its private round of fundraising and launch new “factions” of NFTs such as the Rebel class. 

The Mech NFT “factions” are divided into Legendary, Foundation, Aether, Elders and Rebel. According to Mech’s website, the first three drops of NFT “factions” sold out less than seven days after release. Only 16,016 Mech NFTs will be minted and 7,500 more Mechs will be released.
