Sky Mavis, creator of the Ronin blockchain and its Axie Infinity game, announced the next game that is coming to the Ethereum gaming sidechain: Kaidro, an anime-style role-playing game based on the webcomic of the same name by Gadget-Bot Productions.

Originally planned to launch on Immutable X, another gaming-centric Ethereum scaling network, the Kaidro game will instead release exclusively on Ronin.

Kaidro is set in a post-apocalyptic world where players battle enemies using mechs and magic. Teams of three players will compete in player-versus-player and player-versus-environment gameplay across various maps and objectives. 

In addition to the game, Gadget-Bot is collaborating with writer Tim Hedrick, known for his work on “Avatar: The Last Airbender” and “Voltron: Legendary Defender,” on an animated Kaidro TV series. The studio also partnered with the musical duo Odesza to create the new Kaidro game trailer.


Gadget-Bot was co-founded by Peggy Chung and Robert Simons, who have substantial film and video game credits between them including “Jurassic World” and Call of Duty. Last year, they told Decrypt’s GG why they wanted to turn the “Kaidro” webcomic into a crypto game.

“When we were growing this fanbase, we were creating this huge world. When we saw Web3, we saw it as this way of giving ownership to that fanbase and letting them be a part of it,” Simons said in April 2023. “We saw things like NFTs… as a way for people to actually own a portion of the 'Kaidro' world and forever own it.”

Wednesday’s announcement comes during the same week that Pixels, currently the most popular game on Ronin, launched its long-awaited PIXEL token following play-to-airdrop campaigns. The token generated more than a billion dollars worth of trading volume in less than a day on Monday, entering the top 10 among all cryptocurrencies by that metric.
