dApp Store Kit adopts new tech stack to power Web3 gaming development
DApp Store Kit, which was initially incubated by Polygon Labs, will integrate Ready Games’ mobile game development toolkit to help developers roll out Web3 games.
DApp Store Kit’s toolkit for deploying Ethereum Virtual Machine-compatible decentralized application (DApp) stores will combine with Ready Games, allowing developers to integrate Web3 on-chain support. This will include the ability to integrate wallets and on-chain user profiles as well as a dApp Store frontend stack to launch Web3 games.
The announcement highlighted the prevalence of “clunky user experience” on mobile Web3 games, which often require users to constantly switch in and out of games to interact with external wallet apps.
Ready Games operates in the free-to-play gaming space, with studios representing over 2,500 games and 80 million active monthly users set to feature their titles in the platform’s soon-to-be-launch dApp Store.

Many of these publishers are expected to migrate existing games to Web3 using Ready Games’ development tools and dApp Store Kit and deployed on decentralized Polygon scaling protocols.
Ravikant Agrawal, director of growth at Polygon Labs, said that gaming remains a focal point for the Web3 ecosystem in which DApp stores can drive improved user experience and engagement:
“By leveraging decentralized application stores, gamers can enjoy a seamless and secure experience while also contributing to the growth of the Web3 community.”
Ready Games CEO David Bennahum added that the integration of the platform’s Web3 gaming technology and dApp Store Kit could innovate the mobile gaming landscape:
“This integration paves the way for a new era of immersive and decentralized gaming experiences that will drive mass adoption of Web3 technology.”
DApp development platform dApp Store Kit has incorporated a leading Web3 game development technology stack to help Web2 game publishers migrate their titles into Web3.
Casual gamers have been earmarked as a potential driver of blockchain-powered games by industry players. Meanwhile, the Web3 gaming industry still draws criticism from mainstream commentators for tokenomics issues and general user experience and playability concerns.
