MindFuse receives $1m investment for new MMOs

Developer to announce first title soon with public beta coming next year

MindFuse has announced it has secured USD 1 million in convertible note funding from Keiretsu Forum angel investors for the development of MMOs and virtual worlds.

The company has raised a total of USD 1.75 million since its founding two years ago, by Matthew Le Merle and Joseph Walters, formerly of Shockwave and Skunk Studios.

"The richest massively multiplayer universes have been largely violent fantasy worlds," said Walters, chief executive of MindFuse. "Casual, friendly games on the other hand feel more like a snack than a feast. MindFuse is going to bring the two types of gameplay and players together - simple, compelling games embedded in a deep three dimensional world."

MindFuse has said it will be announcing its first game shortly, and launching a public beta next year.

"Mindfuse has rapidly built a compelling offering at the intersection of two booming sectors; massively multiplayer and casual gaming," commented Le Merle, chairman and president. "Joseph has put together an exceptionally strong team to deliver on his vision of an advanced casual universe, and investors have responded accordingly."
