The Supernauts developer secures Euro talent after $2m seed funding

Finnish studio Grand Cru has hired Thorbjorn Warin, previously with Wooga, as marketing and business development director.

The move comes as Grand Cru, currently developing The Supernauts, secured $2 million in seed investment.

"Adding Thorbj÷rn to head up Grand Cru's marketing and business development is the next critical step in launching The Supernauts," said Markus Pasula, CEO of Grand Cru.

"We already have a superior product and technology development team; Thorbjorn's experience in the social and mobile games business is the next crucial step in helping turn The Supernauts into a success for our company and partners."

The Supernauts is a cross-platform mobile and online game featuring a persistent virtual world of cartoon heroes, due for release later this year.

Grand Cru was founded by six Finnish developers with investment from Playdom co-founder Rick Thompson, former Google M&A head Anil Hansjee and Henric Suuronen, previously with Digital Chocolate, amongst others.
