SuperGaming, a Pune, India-based game development company, raised USD 5.5m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Skycatcher, with participation from AET Fund (venture arm of Akatsuki), BAce Capital, Dream Incubator, 1Up Ventures, and Monish Darda.
The company intends to use the funds for talent expansion by 60% to build its publishing division, market existing titles, and launch a battle royale game – Indus – in early 2022.
Founded by Roby John, Sanket Nadhani, Christelle D’cruz, Sreejit J, and Navneet Waraich, SuperGaming has invested in building its own gaming engine for running hyper-scale, real-time multiplayer games that include the official PAC-MAN game. Mobile games include MaskGun, Devil Amongst Us, and Tower Conquest.
MaskGun recently crossed 50 million installs, while Devil Amongst Us touched 10 million installs within just 4 months of its launch. It has also built Bored – a suite of games for remote teams – used in over 2500 Slack workspaces across the US, UK, Europe, and India.
