Digit Raises $2.5m to Launch Cross-Platform Games
Digit Game Studios, Ireland’s leading games developer, has closed a $2.5 million Series A funding round led by Delta Partners, with participation from the other existing investor ACT Venture Capital.
“This latest funding round helps accelerate Digit in its goal of disrupting the industry with new cross platform technology and awesome games,” said Richard Barnwell, CEO at Digit.
Founded in early 2012 by a team of games industry veterans, Digit has been busy developing its first game, Kings of the Realm (KotR). It is a massively multiplayer strategy game that works across any connected device – an approach called “Seamlessly Cross-Platform”.
“Seamlessly cross-platform is a new way of playing games. It allows our games to be played on any connected device and our players can transition between them. Players can play on their browser in the morning, their smartphone on the train and on their tablet in the evening. They can also play against friends who are using a different device,” said Martin Frain, CMO at Digit.
This funding round takes the total amount raised by Digit to $3.75m with both Delta and ACT, from the AIB Startup Accelerator Fund, previously investing in Digit’s seed round.
Kings of the Realm is due out later this year, along with the first book in a series from Penguin. The announcement was made today, Jan. 31.
