thatgamecompany, developers of flOw, Flower and Journey, have announced that they have raised $7 million to fund their next game, which they will self-publish, market and distribute this time on their own terms. Here’s the announcement:
We are proud to share the news today that our studio has entered the next phase of development on our upcoming project and has raised an additional $7 million in funding. 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.
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.
Since finishing Journey, the team has been hard at work to make an emotionally engaging experience centered around human connections for players of all ages and backgrounds. Were eager to share more information with everyone as we get further into development. Until then, a big thanks to everyone for your patience and ongoing support.
