13th September [Finland]: Community-first UGC metaverse, YAHAHA, has announced a new partnership with the world's most renowned 3D model marketplace, CGTrader. This collaboration has seen the addition of 200,000 3D model assets for users to access and create with on the YAHAHA platform. The partners recently launched the community Hangout Challenge, tasking creators with building a social space on YAHAHA’s platform for the chance to win up to $5000.

Due to its popularity in the creator and game developer community, it was imperative for YAHAHA to partner with a team that could cater to the needs of its user base while sharing the same core values. YAHAHA and CGTrader support a broad community of aspiring game developers and hobbyists with a keen interest in building and creating 3D content. The partnership enriches YAHAHA’s already extensive asset library, encouraging users to build with high-quality assets using its marketplace. Having worked with CGTrader in the past, YAHAHA knew it would be the perfect partnership, enabling both companies to utilise the power and talent of the over 85,000 designers to craft assets to create richer experiences.

YAHAHA, created by a team of Unity veterans, launched in Early Alpha earlier this year following the announcement of an impressive investment of $50million. With YAHAHA, developers can create their own games, worlds, and scenarios in a 3D space, all without the need for coding. No-code content creation that is as simple as drag and drop allows YAHAHA to lower the barriers of entry to game development, making it accessible to both novices and experts. As the user base of the platform continues to grow, Yahaha Studios continues to find partners that enrich the experience for its community of creators. 

Pengfei Zhang, COO at Yahaha Studios said: “Partnering with CGTrader is a very exciting step in the growth of the YAHAHA platform. CGTrader is such an important institution with a rich history in 3D model creation, and we know that working with them is going to be something that will benefit both our user bases. Our Hangout Challenge event has been a great success so far. Users can expect more challenges and events in the future - this is just the beginning!”

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, CGTrader comprises a team of 3D industry experts and encourages creators to build or buy 3D models that can be used in various industries, including games and metaverses. With over 1.5 million models in its marketplace, CGTrader is truly pioneering and one hundred percent designer-friendly. 

Evardas Šmulaitis, VP Marketplace at CGTrader, said: “Working with the team at Yahaha Studios has been great! They have really interesting ideas for the future of game development and this is shown by their investment in the partnership. The collaboration has been seamless through our similarities in fostering community, innovation in gaming, and building quality visuals. This is truly the start of something special.”

Both Yahaha Studios and CGTrader have ambitious plans for the future, including community challenges across both platforms. Looking forward, Yahaha Studios aims to partner with more creator-focussed companies, while CGTrader is looking to partner with more exciting enterprise users.

YAHAHA is currently looking for talented creators and developers to create on the platform as part of its Partner Creator programme. Visit to learn more about YAHAHA.
