Small Giant Games raises 5.4 mln euros

Small Giant Games, a Finnish developer, has raised 5.4 million euros to market its new title Empires & Puzzles, and to build new games.

Lead investor in the round is Stockholm-based EQT Ventures, with investors also including earlier backers Creandum, Spintop Ventures, PROfounders and First Fellow Partners.

Empires & Puzzles is an online Role Playing Game that combines tactical puzzle battles with the building of a mighty stronghold and hero collection. The game was launched last week on both iOS and Android mobile devices.

“We started our new game with a clear vision of creating something that’s super easy to pick up and play, but that also surprises the players with unforeseen depth and a fresh take on familiar elements,” said Timo Soininen, CEO at Small Giant Games.
