Last year, Matt Schembari announced the creation of its own development studio, Lightforge Games , with a handful of veterans having made their arms at Blizzard , Riot , BIOWARE * * or Zenimax Online . The studio then launched with an initial investment of $ 5 million and today announced $ 15 million to continue its activities. The funds were obtained via the Bitkraft Investment Platform, with groups such as NetEase (which was already one of the leading investors of the developer) but also Galaxy Interactive or Dune ** Ventures.
What useforge games use will do these 20 million? The studio intends to design “social RPGs”. The developer wishes to imagine games based on community mechanics on the model of Minecraft or ROBLOX **, but also injecting narrative content inspired by the role-playing games. We imagine that the players could conceive their own RPG scenarios, share them online, or even play them in the title community.
While waiting to learn more about the current development project at Lightforge Games, it will be noted that it seems sufficiently convincing to seduce investors.
