Turbulenz breaks cover with $5 million funding
Ex-Criterion firm raises cash for browser game creation and publishing tool
UK studio Turbulenz has raised $5 million in funding for its eponymous browser game creation and publishing platform.
Founded last year by ex-members of EA and Criterion, Turbulenz plans to launch the platform in 2011 with the aim of enabling easy publishing and monetisation of browser games for developers.
"We are thrilled to announce that we have raised these funds, which will allow us to continue expanding our development goals, enabling Turbulenz to power a new generation of online games," said James Austin, Turbulenz CEO and ex-director of technology at EA.
Having already recruited from the ranks of Apple, Sony, Google, Eidos and Square Enix, Turbulenz plans to expand its numbers further through the next year.
