Ginger Joy’s $1.26 M for Web3 Mobile Games

Mobile game developer Ginger Joy has secured  $1.26 million in funding to create an ecosystem of interoperable blockchain games for mobile devices. The U.K.-based startup is a spinoff from Matchingham Games focused on native Web3 titles.

Rather than porting browser-based blockchain games to mobile, Ginger Joy aims to build engaging games with integrated blockchain elements and item transfer marketing based on in-game achievements. The studio will leverage AI and player data to generate content like race tracks tailored to user preferences. 

Ginger Joy wants blockchain mechanics to elevate gameplay rather than dominate the experience seamlessly. While interoperability between titles draws users deeper into the ecosystem, individual games must be enjoyable and independent of Web3 functionality. Optional integration enables wider appeal during mass adoption. 

The spinoff combines Matchingham Games’ mobile expertise with veteran talent from studios like Sybo, Dream Games, Epic, Pixar, and Netflix. According to Ginger Joy, this fusion of mobile gaming and entertainment veterans will facilitate the creation of compelling, blockchain-integrated mobile titles with strong mainstream appeal.
