In addressing the problem of mass-market games, Wombat has partnered with leading publishers and game studios from the traditional (Web 2) gaming space and the blockchain-based (web 3) gaming space. This has led to the integration of 20 publishers with over 40 games into the wombat app as of June 2022.
