Rogue Games announced it raised $2.5 million in its third Series A round funding from Dubai-based Riva Technology and Entertainment.
The Los Angeles-based game studio will use the investment to develop more indie-games for PC, consoles, and mobile devices.
Riva Technology and Entertainment have previously invested in developing games such as OkLetsPlay and Firefly Games.
Rogue Games CEO Matt Casamassina said, “Over the next six or seven months, we plan to spend more than a million dollars funding really cool projects. We’re already in talks with probably a dozen development studios about the projects. We want games that are potentially viral, very stylish, and very polished. We are looking for ‘batsh*t insane’ games.”
Rogue Games also said the money from Riva Technology and Entertainment will help the company to expand its game developing team, sign new indie games, as well as improve its publishing capabilities for PC, consoles, and mobile devices.
“We’re going to continue to operate in mobile. We’ve got that background. We’ve got our approach to mobile, and as we move forward, we are going to have fewer and bigger titles. Our games will still be very different than the typical mobile game. Often, we will be partnered with a license or going forward,” Casamassina commented.
Rogue was founded in 2019 as a mobile game publisher and raised $1.25 million in its first seed A round funding. The same year, the company raises another $2 million in funds after it expressed its plans to publish games for PC and consoles. The company’s most successful title to date is Super Impossible Road for Apple Arcade, Apple’s premium game subscription service for iOS.
“The money also allows us to play bigger in the console and PC space,” Casamassina said. “We always planned to do that. This just gets us there a little faster. The plan was always to go spread out and take our portfolio to consoles and PCs. Now we really have a vision for it.”
CEO Casamassina said his company is on track to release the Super Impossible Road game for PC and consoles later this year and promises the version will include high-end graphics and run at 120 fps.
Rogue Games has 20+ titles under its belt, including Giant Dancing Plushies and Fisti-Fluffs.
