Axie Infinity announced on its official Discord a list of the first projects accepted into its Builders program.
Builders is one of Axie Infinity’s many initiatives to make Axies more useful, based on experiences built by the community.
Your Axie NFTs are a ticket to an infinite realm of experiences. Today, we take a major step towards making this a tangible reality.
We’re ecstatic to present the first 12 projects that we’ve accepted into the Axie Builders Program!https://t.co/iy2x9sXcR9

Sky Mavis also informed that it will form partnerships with major game studios in order to develop different projects for Axie Infinity and Ronin.
I’ve been pushing this as fast as I can, it’s going through internal and legal iterations now which will take at least a few more weeks. Once that’s complete we’ll release an updated blog post. However, I wanted to share some of the thinking involved so far.

How you can help: Share ideas about what you want from an Axie Runner game, what you want your Axies to do in a Runner game, and any other ideas for that matter. Send your ideas by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), discord (trumpets#5096) or twitter (@trumpets).

Support our builders
Building games is very difficult. The biggest studios that have built many successful games still fail regularly. Ultimately, not all Builder programs may come out or meet all of the expectations we now have for them, but we are confident that all teams will do everything they can to make their project successful. Some projects will come out in months and others will take longer.
All Lunacians must be supportive and patient with our builders, who have accepted the challenge and are putting their blood and sweat into experiences for our community to enjoy. We believe this is just the first step in a new world where the community can directly contribute in a meaningful way to the games and projects they love.
We look forward to seeing all of these projects come to life, as well as all of the projects being worked on that are not yet in the Builders Program.
Leading the Builders Program
Are you excited about the future of community development and experienced in unlocking the full potential of passionate development teams? You may be the right fit to lead the Builders Program as our Head of Community Developer Relations. Apply here if you are interested.
“The Builders Program is one of many initiatives that will unlock more enjoyment and utility for your Axies, in this case from community-built experiences,” Sky Mavis said in a statement.
“We will be accepting many more teams over time (and perhaps very soon) and everyone should continue to build,” Sky Mavis added.
