CrowdStar secures $11.5M in funding following major shift to mobile

CrowdStar secures $11.5M in funding following major shift to mobile

May 2, 2012 | By Tom Curtis

Newsbrief: Just one week ago, social game developer CrowdStar revealed that it has ceased development on Facebook to focus its efforts on mobile platforms. The company recently gained quite a bit of capital to fuel that transition, as it has just secured $11.5 million in funding.

AllThingsD reports that CrowdStar plans to use this money to develop new mobile titles targeting female audiences. The company has already seen success on mobile with games like Social Girl and Top Girl, and these new games will help the company bolster its lineup of fashion and shopping-focused titles.

While the company is no longer developing games for Facebook on the web, CrowdStar plans to integrate Facebook's social graph into all of its upcoming mobile releases. With this most recent funding round, CrowdStar has secured roughly $35 million in capital.
