Fungies.io is a no-code SaaS platform for the gaming industry. The start-up, which is based in Poland, has raised a $850K Pre-seed round. Investors in the round include Depo Ventures, Czech Founders VC, Necto Labs, CV VC, Outlier Ventures, Tatum, and StartupYard.
It wants to ‘disrupt’ the gaming industry by allowing indie gaming studios to set up their own customisable web storefront in minutes – the tools for these smaller firms will encompass digital game distribution, in-game transactions, and private game server monetisation. The platform seamlessly integrates with Stripe.
Fungies says it has plans to ‘integrate with a multitude of third-party apps, including Mailchimp, Zapier, Intercom, and numerous marketing tools’. And it hopes to onboard 2,000 game developers and publishers to the platform within the next year.
"We firmly believe that gaming commerce will continue to soar in value in the coming years, given that players already spend hundreds of billions of dollars annually on in-game items and assets, both Web2 and Web3. Our mission is to equip game studios with the essential tools to self-publish directly to their players,” says Duke Vu, CEO of Fungies.io.
