Disruptor Beam raises $3.2 million for Star Trek Timelines and other projects

US studio Disruptor Beam has announced a $3.2 million Series A investment round.

The developer, which released Game of Thrones Ascent on mobile, Facebook and Kongregate, and which is now working on Star Trek Timelines sees its focus as making authentic, socially-driven games.

New investors in this round included Midverse Studios, which recently signed up the developer to its Invest+Publish program, GrandBanks Capital and a number of technology-oriented angel investors.

Also participating were prior investors including CommonAngels, Romulus Capital, and angel investors including Harmonix founders Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy.

Silicon Valley Bank made available a line of credit in connection with the equity financing.

Focusing the beam

"These latest investments will help us to further deliver on our vision of creating the most community-centric game company in the world," said CEO Jon Radoff.

"We build games based on entertainment brands that have the most engaged fan communities. And, we see these communities as just as important as the games themselves. For these reasons, we're in the process of developing a community platform that will allow cross-game social capabilities and one that will enable players to connect with one another in new, innovative ways."

Disruptor Beam says the investment will be used to continue development of Star Trek Timelines, as well expanding the company's community-centric gaming platform, bulking up its development team and acquiring new IPs for future games.
