Stark Trek Timelines developer Disruptor Beam has raised $8.5 million in a Series B investment round.
The Boston-based mobile studio aims to use the funding to employ more staff and bolster the development of its existing games and new projects such as The Walking Dead: March to War.
The financing round was led by GrandBanks Capital and Romulus Capital, as well as a number of other new and existing investors.

During 2016 the company doubled its staff headcount and grew its revenues by 300%.
To date its games, which include Star Trek Timelines and Game of Thrones Ascent, have been played by more than 15 million people worldwide.
“Disruptor Beam’s success over the past year is linked to the launch of Star Trek Timelines, but it is also a direct result of our continued dedication to Disruptor Beam’s unique culture,” said Jon Radoff, CEO and Founder of Disruptor Beam.
“From delivering true-to-the-IP game content, to striving for genuine communication with our customers, to how our employees work together, authenticity matters. Our culture has allowed us to effectively grow these entertainment brands for fans and our media partners alike.
"This latest investment will help fuel the continued growth and development of our platform and our teams, so that we can in turn continue to bring fans deeper into the worlds that they love.”
