Funsolve gets "seven-figure" investment from Outright Games

Funding will cover new project based on a major IP, and a second project to start in 2020

Funsolve has secured a "seven-figure" investment from the family entertainment publisher Outright Games.

The money will help the studio to grow as it works on a multi-platform project based on an unannounced major IP. That project will be developed over the next two years, at which point Outright will help to find a second project.

"With the studio rapidly expanding, we're already securing funding for a second project to begin in 2020.," said Funsolve founder Richard Tawn in a statement. "We are delighted to be able to offer a stable and fun environment for our team so they can focus on creating cutting-edge gaming experiences that resonate with audiences globally."

Funsolve previously worked with Outright Games on the early stages of what would become Crayola Scoot, and this new partnership is in part due to the success of that collaboration.

Outright Games has built its business around working with family-friendly entertainment IP, exemplified by a deal for Cartoon Network properties like Adventure Time and Ben 10.

Last month, we talked to Outright Games chair Nick Button-Brown about the social responsibility that comes with developing games. You can read that conversation here.
