What is the Axie Infinity Builders Program?
The Axie Infinity Builders Program is a program where developers can make games that take place in the Axie metaverse and use the same NFTs. The program provides support, promotion, and the resources needed for developers to build gaming experiences on top of Axie.
The program aims to manage risks to the gaming community and provide additional usage opportunities for Axies.
Teams that are chosen to be part of the Axie Infinity Builders Program will receive between $5,000 and $400,000 worth of Axie Infinity tokens (AXS) to fund their projects. Those interested to join the program will be evaluated based on how engaging and fun their projects would be for the end users and the Axie Infinity ecosystem at large.
Participants in the Axie Infinity Builders Program will gain access to a wide range of integrations, including Ronin Wallet, Ronin Network testnet, and Ronin SSO. All projects in the program will be promoted by Sky Mavis, the developer behind Axie Infinity.
Long term, games created in the Axie Infinity Builders Program will be integrated or affiliated with the main game.
The Best Axie Infinity Builders Program Games
Here are our top Axie Infinity Builder games so far:
Below, we review these Axie Infinity sub-games in more detail.
Mario Kart-style game in the Axie Infinity metaverse
Axie WarKart is a play-to-earn racing game that promises to reward gamers for their time and loyalty. In the game, you’d send your axies into battle, shoot your opponents in go-karts, and collect as much in-game assets as possible.
The team members behind Axie WarKark are individuals with a vast background in blockchain and NFTs.
Axie WarKart will have a marketplace where users and gamers will be able to design and sell Kart NFT skins to other community members to make real-world money. The marketplace will also allow the exchange of in-game assets to real-world money.
WarKart is loosely based on Mario Kart, utilizing Axies instead.
Axie Infinity MOBA Game
Origami Conquest is a unique Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game. This project aims to give you more games to play and also expand the existing Axie universe.
In other MOBA games, players are allowed to choose between previously designed characters with specific skills, but the narrative is different with Origami Conquest.
Instead of choosing from a set of characters, you will need to use Axies. This means, you will have different skills for each body part your Axie has. During a match, every Axie can buy temporary items. Axie NFTs will be used within the game as skins.
As of today, MOBA is still one of the best and most popular game genres. A typical MOBA game consists of 3-5 players and lasts between 10-30 minutes on average on mobile and 15-45 minutes on PC.
Axie Infinity MMORPG
Crisis Rift is another upcoming game developed through the Axie Infinity Builders Program. It’s an online role-playing game, where a large number of players participate simultaneously. It is built on the Ronin Network.
According to the developers, players will battle themselves, collect in-game assets, have fun, and make real-world money.
One of the ways to make money in Crisis Rift is to collect NFTs and convert the same to money in secondary NFT marketplaces like OpenSea.
We want to see how large and expansive the Crisis Rift world will be. The inclusion of Axies should allow the development team to focus their effort on the game world instead.
Battle for Giostone
Axie Infinity Battling Game
Battle For Giostone is an NFT game filled with species of heros. Players can earn in-game resources, which they can later sell to other players to make money.
In the game, you will be able to customize your heroes to battle against unique creatures. Whether you want to Produce, Collect, or Battle your opponents, there’s a place for you in Battle for Giostone.
Heros in the game will have a combination of 72 spells. Each spell has different use cases and values. Players can combine different spells to use in a battle.
Three ways to earn money in the game are:
- Battling other players to earn rewards like the Battle For Giostone (BFG) tokens and Giostones (GST).
- Collecting Rare Heros.
- Fighting against different creatures to gain the production machine to produce new heroes.

As you can see, the Axie Infinity Builders Program is an exciting way to extend the Axie universe. By utilizing the same platform, NFTs, and ecosystem, game developers can get a head start on the support and integration of their games.
Long term, we think that a lot of the games from the program will be integrated within the full Axie Infinity experience. We expend these games to expand the Axie metaverse and give more reasons to utilize, spend, and save your tokens.
