Social Game Developer Rocket Ninja Secures $7.5M In Funding

Social Game Developer Rocket Ninja Secures $7.5M In Funding

November 22, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Browser game developer Rocket Ninja has secured $7.5 million in a round of Series B funding, as a means of hiring new employees and expanding the company's reach.

The San Francisco-based company's financing round was led by European private investor Marcel Boekhoorn, and adds to the $3.5 million that the company had previous secured last year.

Rocket Ninja's first game, Wrestler Unstoppable, launched on Facebook earlier this year, and uses the company's Shr3D content pipeline engine to deliver "social 3D" visuals.

The company noted that its Shr3D engine can be used to create games for both browser and mobile devices.

Oded Pelled, CEO of Rocket Ninja, explained, "3D revolutionized the gaming industry, and it will forever change the social web by delivering a new dimension in self expression and interactivity."

"There's a need for a company that has the technology, the killer apps and the savvy to showcase compelling 3D in entertainment across the social web. The team at Rocket Ninja has cracked the code for making 3D applications accessible, easy to use and fun."
