Harmonix strikes deal with VC firm for three new projects

MD of the Foundry Group has joined the board for human-computer interaction projects

The managing director of the VC firm the Foundry Group has joined the board at Harmonix.

According to a post on his personal blog, Foundry MD Brad Feld was persuaded to join Harmonix after presentations of three new projects by co-founders Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy.

"Each addressed a different [human-computer interaction] paradigm, each was stunningly envisioned, and each was magic, even in its rough form," Feld wrote. "Earlier this year I saw each game again, in a more advanced form. And I was completely and totally blown away - literally bouncing in my seat as I saw them demoed.

"It's an honour to be working with two entrepreneurs who are so incredibly passionate and dedicated to their craft. They've built, over a long period of time, a team that has created magical games not just once, but again and again. And they continue to push the boundaries of human-computer interaction in a way that impacts millions of people."

The Foundry Group - which has a VC fund of $225m - specialises in making investments in early-stage computer technologies and software start-ups. Feld, who is one of four managing directors at the firm, has joined the Harmonix board, but no financial details of the arrangement have been released.

Cool, sounds really interesting! Harmonix have a lot of ex-Looking Glass people there, so there's some great talent onboard.

Fascinated to learn more about this in coming months and years! :)
