Multiplayer online game publisher Outspark has announced that the company has received a Series A investment from Altos Ventures and DCM to further support and develop Outspark's games and distribution platform.

Headquartered in San Francisco and with a studio in Seoul, Korea, Outspark's only currently announced game is Fiesta Online, a "full 3D cartoon fantasy MMORPG based on brilliant and dynamic cartoon style graphic images" in which players can "form various and powerful community through the 'Kingdom Quest,' 'Master and Pupil System,' and 'Guild Growing System.'"

No further details have yet been announced from the company concerning launch dates, other prospective titles, or a disclosure of the amount of Altos and DCM's investment.

Said Altos general partner Han Kim, "Outspark is efficiently creating a new ecosystem for casual, multiplayer games played on the Internet. Drawing its experience from managing casual-games portals for companies including Yahoo!, Nexon, and NHN, Outspark's senior management team is equipped to deliver innovations Asian consumers already enjoy to a gaming-hungry U.S. marketplace."
