Mobile app Bunch, which allows gamers to play mobile games along with their friends over audio or video chat, has closed a $3.85mn investment round from key game makers. These include Riot Games, Miniclip, Tencent, Colopl Next and Supercell. The previous investors of Bunch include Founders Fund, Shrug Capital, London Venture Partners, Streamlined Ventures, North Zone, Betaworks & 500 Startups.
The firm has plenty of 1st-party games available via its platform for ensuring that the new users of the app have a start-off point. But, a major challenge of scaling actually is developing relationships along with 3rd-party game developers to gradually integrate that linking tech into Bunch application.
With the help of the latest funding, Bunch sees itself positioned under the shadow of the largest mobile game makers across the world. Besides, the new raised money also gets Bunch’s total funding to $8.5mn since launch.
Notably, this is not the first that that we have observed a firm try to get back the ‘90s gaming nostalgia in the present 21st century. We already have Discord which has earned a lot of fame in gaming arena due to its platform which lets gamers communicate prior to, during as well as after any game.
