Finnish mobile games developer Small Giant Games has raised $3.1 million (€2.4 million) in its latest investment round.
According to the Venturebeat.com website, the company will use the funds to support the launch of its first game and the development of additional works.
‘Oddwings Escape’, the company’s first game, is due to be launched on mobile platforms around the world next year.
Timo Soininen, chief executive officer of Small Giant Games, said: “It’s not possible to succeed in the fiercely competitive mobile games market just by copying existing popular games. You need to create new and unparalleled game features and experiences, which shape the existing genres and create entirely new ones.
“One of our goals is to raise the quality of character animations in mobile games to a new level.
“We are thrilled to get experienced investors to back our vision of creating beautiful and engaging multiplayer games with small focused teams.”
