This funding of such a huge amount is being directed by German Angel fund with collaboration from gaming industry veterans Mike Borras as well as Clemens Beer. This contribution brings the entire amount that has been raised to somewhere around 500000 pounds.
Mike Borras who has played a major role in contribution of that 200000 pounds has been hired as the new CEO, the position which has been passed on to him by the initial co founder, who is being transitioned to the post of COO, Helmut Hutterer.

The existing members of this team are eleven; however the planning incorporates to grow the team to at least a figure of twenty by the mid of the coming year. The remaining funding would be utilized in realizing the already existing model of IP or games as developed by the organization. Another part where the funding will play role is where the development teams would work with third party brands in helping them reach the mobile gaming or social gaming bandwagon.
