Klang Games raises $8.75m for AI-driven space colonization MMO

Spotify-backer firm Northzone leads Series A funding round

Klang Games has announced the completion of a Series A funding round for its AI-driven space colony MMO, Seed. In total, the Berlin-based studio has raised $8.95 million in investments.

According to VentureBeat's report, the funding round was led by Northzone, which has helped fund Spotify, PlayRaven, iZettle, and Avito in the past.

"We're truly humbled to have secured the Series A for the development of Seed, a project that we believe will play an integral role in the next generation of social simulations," said Klang Games CEO Mundi Vondi. "We are honored to share our vision with Northzone, and are more excited than ever to tackle this very ambitious project."

Total, Klang has raised $13.95 million toward Seed. Its previous funding round in March was led by Makers Fund and also included investments from Firstminute Capital, Neoteny, Mosaic Ventures, and Novator.

Seed will run on the SpatialOS platform from London-based startup Improbable. The game is an ongoing, continuous simulation that allows players to colonize an alien world. Characters persist in-game after players log off, continuing actions based on what players do while playing and allow the world to exist independent of individual player action.
