Next Games receives $6 million in funding
Next Games is a Finland based mobile-game developer that has raised $6 million in funding. The funding will go towards the building of a couple more games, including one based on the TV show “The Walking Dead.” The $6 million is being provided from a group of investors spanning across three continents. The three investors include IDG Capital Partners (China), Accel Partners (USA), and Jari Ovaskainen (Finland). AMC is also one of Next Games’ investors. The Walking Dead game will be modular so that when a new location appears in an episode of The Walking Dead, it can be quickly featured in the game.
