Lucid Sight raises $2.6m

Investment to support launch of cloud-hosted multiplayer server engine service

Publisher Lucid Sight announced that it's raised $2.6 million in a funding round.

The company said that the investment will go towards launching multiplayer game engine Colyseus Arena as a cloud-hosted service.

The funding round was led by Galaxy Interactive with participation from other investors such as VamosVentures, Goal Venture Partners, Gaingels, and existing investors.

"Colyseus will always be open-source and we made the lowest tier of Arena free because we wanted no barrier for developers to dive in and get to fun faster," said said Lucid Sight CEO Randy Saaf.

"Combine this with Colyseus's small resource footprint and simple JavaScript programing language and you quickly see why Colyseus Arena provides the best solution for these instant play style multiplayer games," said Lucid Sight CTO Fazri Zubair.

Lucid Sight had acquired Colyseus earlier this year with the aim of democratizing multiplayer game server engines.
