Mobile developer Supersolid nets $4M to expand London team

Mobile developer Supersolid nets $4M to expand London team

October 12, 2017 | By Chris Kerr




Mobile game developer Supersolid has netted $4 million in funding to ramp up production and expand its London team.

The studio has worked on a variety of titles including infinite runner, Super Penguin, and city-building RPG, Adventure Town

As reported by VentureBeat, the company's growing roster has racked up over 50 million downloads to date. 

Supersolid CEO and co-founder Ed Chin believes the studio's knack for creating engaging social and casual free-to-play titles is the secret to its success. 

"I think a big part of our success comes from the long experience we have in the team for developing engaging social and casual free-to-play games," explained Chin. 

"Much of our senior team have worked together for many years prior to the founding of Supersolid, and together we created some of the most successful early free-to-play games, which happened to be on Facebook.

"The mobile games market has seen high saturation in particular game genres, but there remains a lot of opportunity in mastering new genres. We believe this to be especially the case for several under-served genres with a wider casual audience."
