Fresvii, a Redwood City, Calif.-based platform service for smartphone game developers, closed a $1.8m funding round.
The round was led by Nissay Capital and other angel investors.
Led by Hiro Nakagawa, CEO, Fresvii has just announced Open Beta for AppSteroid, a mobile game cloud platform featuring Chatter, an in-game mobile voice chat that allows players on iOS and Android devices to talk with each other. Through APPSTEROID, developers can integrate in-game voice chat, texting, leaderboards and matchmaking tools into their mobile games. Other services include community management, game forums, social network integration, and push notifications.
It also provides a platform for 3D avatar automation called Frenbee that allows developers to create avatars with Unity.
