Mythical Games, a Los Angeles, CA-based next generation game technology studio specializing in digital ecosystems around player-owned economies, closed an additional $19m in venture capital funding.
The round was led by Javelin Venture Partners, with new investors including Avon Ventures, Alumni Ventures, and Hashed and participation from current investors Galaxy Digital via its Galaxy EOS VC Fund and Struck Capital.
The company raised $16M last year in Seed and Series A rounds, bringing total funding to $35M to date.
Founded in 2018 by CEO John Linden, CCO Jamie Jackson, and VP of Marketplace Services, Rudy Koch, Mythical Games is providing a platform for game developers to create player-owned economies and producing new tools to provide ownership of in-game assets for content creators and brands to build and customize.
The company has over 30 full-time employees and offices in Los Angeles and Seattle.
Alongside the investment, Mythical has bolstered its leadership team with four significant hires in COO Jeff Poffenbarger, CPO Pete Hawley, Vice President of Marketing Nicole Yang, and General Counsel Greg Deutsch.
The company also strengthened its board of directors with the addition of Alex Gurevich (Javelin Venture Partners) and independent board member Rehito Hatoyama (formerly Global COO of Sanrio, Hello Kitty) who join existing board members Sam Englebardt of Galaxy Digital, John Linden, and Jamie Jackson.
