LOS ANGELES --Sept. 13, 2018 -- New video game developer Singularity 6 has raised $2.5 million in seed investment from London Venture Partners (LVP), a leading venture capital fund focused on the games space. Singularity 6 will utilize these funds, LVP’s largest single investment to date,to accelerate development of its first product while hiring top talent.

“Our culture is increasingly moving in a direction where technology is redefining work, leisure, community, meaning and belonging,” said Anthony Leung, CEO and co-founder, Singularity 6. “Our goal is to create worlds that offer players experiences that deliver much more than superficial entertainment or wish fulfillment. Imagine games as a primary source of community for players, as meaningful to their lives as a church community or being a part of a sports team. We're looking forward to working with some of the best talent in the industry to help bring this vision to life.”

Singularity 6 was founded by former Riot Games leads Aidan Karabaich and Anthony Leung to pursue a vision to create genre-defining online titles that become a key part of a person’s identity, games that invite players to join compelling virtual worlds with thriving online communities, and with gameplay that drives meaningful social experiences. Development is already underway on the company’s first game, an ambitious combination of community simulation, rewarding game design and deep systems that produce a variety of in-game experiences in beautiful spaces.

“When we met with Singularity 6, we knew right away that we had to be involved,” said David Gardner, OBE, general partner, London Venture Partners. “Their singular vision for the way games are evolving is unlike any other we’ve come across. Our partnership is going to lead to an exciting evolution in the way people play games together.”

The investment marks the largest in an early-stage company to date by London Venture Partners. Over the last eight years, the fund partners have invested in video game developers, technologies and platforms such as Supercell, Playfish, Unity and Natural Motion.
