Blacknut, a Rennes and Paris, France-based cloud-gaming platform, raised €2.4m in funding.
Backers included Go Capital, Nestadio Capital and unnamed business angels.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop and launch the platform in France while the expansion into Europe, the United States and Canada, expected to occur in 2018, will be fueled by a new round of funding.
Led by Olivier Avaro, CEO, and Eric Bustarret, CTO, Blacknut operates an on demand multi-screen streaming video gaming platform. Available by subscription, the platform is in the pre-launch phase with beta-testers and is targeting commercialization to the general public by the end of the year.
The catalog, which currently has approx. 200 titles from independent studios and existing actors, is built by Oscar Barda and Nabil Laredj.
