Finnish Game Developer of the Year poised to redefine mobile entertainment
Today at SLUSH, Seriously, the creators of the award winning hit game Best Fiends, announced $5M additional funding raised from existing investors, ahead of commencing a Series A round in the new year, bringing the company’s total funding to ten million dollars.
“We’ve been thrilled with the reaction to our first title,” said Andrew Stalbow, CEO. “The additional funding gives us extra firepower to extend our talented team of 13 people as we take our strategy of creating global entertainment brands ‘mobile first’ to a new level.”
Founded in August 2013, Seriously’s debut title is a super addictive puzzle game that introduces the story of Best Fiends and their journey through the world of Minutia to defeat the Slugs of Mount Boom. Selected by Apple as the ‘Best Of October 2014’, the game is available for iOS devices globally. In addition, the second title in the Best Fiends trilogy will be released in 2015.
“This is only the beginning.” said Petri Järvilehto, Chief Creative Officer. “We’re working hard to take Best Fiends to the next level over the coming months, and we can’t wait to share our new features, content, game play, characters as well as a few more surprises too. More soon!”
