The funding will be channeled towards establishing a games as a service strategy, fostering community development and streamer operations, and hiring key talent as the studio prepares to launch Minion Masters on PC and Xbox.

"While the PC gaming market has gotten a lot less attention and investment these last years during the growth of mobile, we are seeing the coming of a golden age of PC gaming," said Are Mack Growen, at London Venture Partners.

"Tools, AI, distribution, business models, designs, community involvement are all rapidly changing, presenting problems for incumbents and enabling exciting new IPs, designs and studios to reach mass audiences and establish hobbies for millions of people.

"With game viewing, esports and the new level of community involvement, the very definition of what game companies are making is expanding and changing.

"All this makes us very excited about PC and console games, and in particular about teams like BetaDwarf, who are so in touch with this changing landscape and willing to explore and iterate fast."
