Frankfurt-based Keen Games is the latest studio to receive investment from Hiro Capital, the entrepreneur-led VC fund for creators in Video Games and the Metaverse.
Keen Games will use Hiro Capital and Tencent’s $10 million to expand game development and to publish their upcoming open-world sandbox title, the spiritual successor to the hugely popular Portal Knights. Portal Knights sold over 3.5M copies and have been played by millions of players around the world.
With this new capital investment, Keen has a bright future as a well-funded studio equipped to retain its creative and publishing independence.
“We are incredibly excited to start a brand new chapter for Keen Games with the development of our next title and transition to a self-publishing studio.” Said Jan Joeckel, CEO of Keen Games. “We found in Hiro and Tencent two very strong partners that are aligned with our vision of taking the studio to the next level.”
