Mindshapes, a developer specialising in apps and browser games aimed at child education, has secured a $5 million round of series A funding from investors and angels.
The cash will be used to expand the company business and consolidate existing revenue streams, as well as launching two new major games: Magic Town and Language City.
"We are passionate about using the latest technology and contemporary educational thinking to change the way that children learn around the world," commented CEO David Begg.
"This investment will accelerate our plans to become the world's most trusted digital publisher of high quality educational games, books and learning worlds as we continue to expand."
Mindshapes currently has seven apps at market on the App Store. The company was founded by some of the team responsible for founding Playfish before that company was sold to EA.
