About Pahdo Labs

We are a gaming startup building an anime-inspired creative RPG, mixing our favorite aspects of fighting games, role-playing games, and game making tools into one seamless social experience. We have raised over $17.5M in seed and Series A funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Pear VC, BoxGroup, Neo, Zynga founder Mark Pincus, Eventbrite founder Kevin Hartz, and Cyan Banister.

We are seeing an explosion of interest in anime in the west: Jujutsu Kaisen, Genshin Impact, and collaborations in League of Legends/Fortnite are early indicators of a greater trend. As anime fans ourselves, we are incredibly excited to be building a 3D isometric action RPG with an anime-inspired theme, where players can create their levels and game modes in our multiplayer world.
