£600k Investment Deal Covers Development, Production and Marketing to Kickstart Three New Interactive Entertainment Properties in 2016.
Games Co. London, an economical games development funding platform, today announced a new funding deal with their partners Goldfinch Entertainment – the gold standard in entertainment and media investment. The deal will provide £600k in funding for three new gaming properties, with an even larger second round coming in 2017, as the platform continues its mission of offering independent game developers access to games funding which lets them keep their IP and company equity while providing the essential support to make their funds go further, their revenues increase, and the freedom to choose between third party publishing or a supported self-publishing route.
Having signed two developers who have gone on to win multiple awards already we are confident that we can find the right talent, and work with the next generation of games developers and help guide them in building innovative franchises that ultimately deliver. We are incredibly excited about the funding agreement with Goldfinch Entertainment, which will allow Games Co. London to support the development, marketing and PR of three new properties.
