Odyssey Interactive raises $19M in Series A round
Independent game developer Odyssey Interactive has closed its Series A, raising $19M in investment.
The investment: It comes two years after the studio's first raise.
- It was first reported by GamesIndustry.biz.
- Odyssey Interactive raised $6M in August 2020 in its seed round to kickstart its goal of producing accessive, yet competitive, games.
- The Series A round was led by Makers Fund, a venture capital firm with a financial interest in the likes of esports betting platform Midnite, esports organization TSM, gameplay capture platform Medal, and independent studio Theorycraft Games.
The studio: There's a lot of faith in the company, especially because of its founding team.
- It was founded in 2020 by former Riot Games employees David Capurro, Dax Andrus, Eric Lawless, and Richard Henkel.
- Omega Strikers, the company's first title, is a three-versus-three competitive game that's currently available in open beta on Steam and is scheduled for a full release in February 2023.
- The studio has 10 open positions on Hitmarker at the time of publication and, with this new funding, appears likely to be increasing its workforce further as it scales. It's currently hiring for a handful of senior positions including a 3D Environment Artist, an Illustrator, and a Concept Artist.
