Flavourworks raises $4.5 million
The United Kingdom-based indie studio previously raised £3 million ($3.85 million USD) in November of 2019. London technology fund Hiro Capital led the investment, with participation from Boston investment group Sky Ventures.
The additional £500,000 is from Jon Goldman, a Managing Partner for Skybound and Board Partner for Greycroft. He joins the round through an investment by the GC Tracker Fund.
“With Black Mirror, Lion King and now Mandalorian, video gaming and Hollywood are finally blending together,” said Jon Goldman, in a release. “Flavourworks has truly positioned itself in the cross hairs of this trend. I could not be more excited to support this exceptional team.”
Flavourworks is most well known for its “touch video” technology that integrates gameplay and videos, with interactive thriller game Erica as its main title. This is done by combining live footage and role-playing interaction, so players can follow along a game in a movie-like experience.
