The dApp Store Kit, which was originally developed by Polygon Labs, will integrate the Ready Games mobile game development toolkit to help developers deploy Web3 games.
The dApp Store Kit for deploying EVM-compatible DApp stores will pair with Ready Games, allowing developers to integrate Web3 support on the web. This will include the ability to integrate wallets and user profiles on the network, as well as an external DApp Store stack to run Web3 games.
The announcement highlights the prevalence of “clunky user experience” in Web3 mobile games, which often require users to constantly switch in and out of the game to interact with external wallet applications.
Ready Games is in the free-to-play space, with over 2,500 game studios and 80 million monthly active users set to launch their games on the soon-to-be-launched dApp Store.

Many of these publishers are expected to migrate their existing games to Web3 using the Ready Games and dApp Store Kit development tools and deploy them on Polygon’s decentralized scaling protocols.
Ravikant Agrawal, director of development at Polygon Labs, said games remain a focus of the Web3 ecosystem where dapp stores can improve the user experience:
“By using decentralized app stores, gamers can enjoy a smooth and secure experience and help grow the Web3 community.”
Ready Games CEO David Bennahum added that the integration of the Web3 platform gaming technology and the dApp Store Kit could innovate the mobile gaming landscape:
“This integration paves the way for a new era of immersive and decentralized gaming that will drive the mainstream adoption of Web3 technology.”
The decentralized application (DApp) development platform dApp Store Kit includes an advanced Web3 game development technology stack to help Web2 game publishers migrate their games to Web3.
Casual players have been flagged by industry players as a potential driver of blockchain-based gaming. Meanwhile, the Web3 gaming industry continues to be criticized by mainstream commentators for issues with tokenomics and general UI and playability issues.
