Hidden Leaf Games raises $3.2m to fuel debut MOBA

Company was founded by former product managers at Riot Games and PUBG Corp

A new development studio founded by two industry veterans - David Li and Bao Lam - has raised $3.2 million in a round of seed funding.

The round was led by Amy Wu, partner at Lightspeed Ventures, with additional investment from Vermillion Ventures, Riot Games head of live support Logan Margulies, Pragma CEO Eden Chen, and Scopely VP of product Alex Paley.

Hidden Leaf was founded in late 2019 by Li and Lam - who previously held product management roles at Zynga and Super Evil Megacorp, and PUBG Corp, respectively.

The pair also held product management roles at Riot Games.

Hidden Leaf has also recruited World of Warcraft mod creator Steve "Guinsoo" Feak as head of design, whose work inspired the core gameplay of Dota 2 and League of Legends.

The studio is currently working on its debut title, Fangs, a 3v3 action MOBA. The game is set to launch in closed alpha later this month.
