Tripledot Studios, a casual gamedev startup with offices in London and Minsk, Belarus, has raised $8 million in a funding round led by Velo Partners. The company plans to use the capital injection to assemble an all-star team and focus on mobile games.
“We are building the ‘Apollo Program’ of mobile games,” said Lior Shiff, co-founder and CEO of Tripledot Studios. “Like the Apollo Program brought the best and brightest to achieve amazing things, we are bringing exceptional people together to create extraordinary mobile games. Our team has a unique understanding of the three pillars necessary for success in mobile games - science, art, and business. We know how to turn ideas into successes and are agile enough to execute quickly on rapidly moving market trends and opportunities. This is reflected in the amazing reception of our debut titles, already being played by millions of players worldwide.”
So far, Tripledot has launched a few casual titles including Solitaire, Solitaire 95, Sudoku, and a story-based chat game, Twisted, on multiple platforms including iTunes, Google Play, and Facebook Instant Games.
