Journey Developer Raises $7 Million For New Project
Promises new game will be an ’emotionally engaging experience.’
thatgamecompany, the developers who brought us Flow, Flower, and their breakout hit Journey, all exclusively on the PlayStation 3, have been working on a new game project for quite a while now (and apparently, their next game project is not necessarily exclusive to PlayStation); today, they announced that they have raised $7 million for this new game, the funding coming from venture capital firm Capital Today and a team of other investors.
“We are happy to partner with Capital Today and a team of other investors who share our vision in making meaningful interactive experiences that inspire, connect, and emotionally touch the hearts of players around the world,” they said.
“With this new investment, our studio is able to scale up development efforts to focus on making the best game possible in the same spirit as flOw, Flower, and Journey. We’ll also begin laying the infrastructure to self-publish, market, and distribute on our own terms for this next project and beyond.”
Considering the meteoric upward trajectory this company has seen, seeing what they do next will certainly be extremely interesting.
