Ex-King staffers net $2.2M to form new multiplayer-focused mobile studio

December 4, 2017 | By Chris Kerr




A group of former King staffers have raised $2.2 million to fund the creation of new mobile studio, Strange Quest. 

The cash came from a seed funding round led by investment outfit Initial Capital, and featuring others including Manta Ray and Global Founders Capital. 

The Swedish studio, which is headed up by King's former vice president of creative production Adam Schaub, will use the funds to develop "low complexity, high intensity" competitive multiplayer games for mobile. Its debut title will be a synchronous multiplayer action game codenamed 'Project Pew Pew.'

"Strange Quest aims to innovate and break new ground in the mobile games market," explained Schaub, who will serve as company CEO.

"We are convinced that there is an enormous future potential for synchronous multiplayer games on mobile, and by creating frictionless products and combining them with innovative marketing strategies we intend to prove that thesis."
