Stanga Games raises $500,000 in additional funding round

Investment will go toward hiring new staff, optimizing Underworld Football Manager

Stanga Games has raised an additional $500,000 in a funding round lead by Taya Ventures. This is on top of $500,000 in funding raised last December.

According to Pocketgamer.biz, the money will go toward hiring new staff, optimizing Underworld Football Manager, and improving marketing for the game. Near future plans include launching a website called UnderworldFootball.com and creating a Facebook version of the title.

"Right now we are focused on making this title a world leader, but we will always keep the option open to begin working on our second title," said CEO Adam Jaffe.

Alongside the funding round, investor Gigi Levy has joined the Stanga Games advisory board.
