Piepacker raises $12m in funding round

Browser-based platform plans to expand into more territories and bring more titles to its roster

Social gaming site Piepacker has raised $12 million in a Series A funding round.

The round was led by LEGO Ventures with support from long-term investors Makers Fund and V13 Interest, among others.

The money raised will go towards the growth of the platform, and fueling expansion onto more devices and into more territories.

"We created Piepacker to offer a social and low tech-friendly cloud gaming platform," said Piepacker CEO Benjamin Devienne. "We designed it to be accessible to everyone: available directly from a web browser, it does not require a high-speed internet connection to provide a seamless multiplayer game experience.

"Piepacker is all about bringing people together through games, with a touch of childhood playfulness and creativity. It was a natural step to choose LEGO Ventures as a catalyst and key advisor for our growth model. LEGO's DNA and philosophy resonate perfectly with our vision."

Piepacker, which launched in March 2020, is a cloud-based service that offers over 60 modern and retro games in a free catalogue that users can play in a web browser. The platform has partnerships with publishers such as Interplay, Codemasters and Team17.

The company also plans to develop more games exclusively for the Piepacker platform. It launched its debut title, Arséne Lupin: Gentleman Bomber, back in May this year.

Back in June, the company raised $3 million in a seed funding round, marking a total of $15 million raised in 2021.
