“It’s a great acknowledgement of what we’ve done so far to have as experienced investors as these participate in the round,” said Ívar Kristjánsson, co-founder of 1939 Games. “The financing should allow us to release the game, and we’re growing the team to support that.”
Their debut game, Kards, is currently in Alpha testing mode, and according to the company, more than 20 thousand have applied to become testers.
1939 Games previously raised an undisclosed seed round from various investors, and has received grants from the Technology Development Fund.
