mod.io, a cross-platform UGC and modding service based in Melbourne, Australia, raised US$4m in seed funding.
Makers Fund co-led the funding round with Sequoia Capital India’s Surge, with participation from Play Ventures, GameTech Ventures, and Machinefloor.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Co-founded by Scott Reismanis and Patrick Sotirou in 2019, mod.io provides cross-platform mod support, metrics tracking, moderation, discovery, and community building tools, managed by a unified dashboard. Developers can launch their mod communities. The company’s REST API and open-source SDKs are compatible with all existing game engines. Plugins are available for Unreal Engine and Unity.
Over 50 games use mod.io across 11 storefronts, including PC, Xbox, iOS, and Android. Popular titles such as SnowRunner, Skater XL, and TABS have contributed to mod.io’s 65 million downloads. They plan to launch their mod support on consoles in the coming months.
