Former Angry Birds devs raise $759,000 to create new mobile RPGs

March 2, 2016 | By Chris Kerr




Finnish mobile startup Kopla Games, founded last year by a group of former Angry Birds developers, has raised €700,000 ($759,000) in seed funding from Flaregames and Gameforge founder, Klaas Kersting. 

Kersting has acted as an early stage investor for many startups including Supercell, Spacetime Studios and iQU, and has given Kopla a cash injection to help the studio expand its team and finish up its debut title, an action RPG codenamed 'Project Nonstop'. 

Kopla was founded back in 2015 by CEO Mika Kuusisto; product lead, Janne Jaakkola; art lead, Ilkka Siik; and tech lead. Vilppu Tuominen. The group initially teamed up while working on Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise. 

"Kopla are a highly experienced group with a unique mindset when it comes to developing mobile games," said Kersting. "They have very impressive plans to expand their team in a scalable way."
