VR games developer WarDucks has secured a seed investment round of €1.3 million ($1.5m).

As part of the agreement, Toby Raincock, CEO of London-based independent financial services company Shard Capital, is joining the board.

The Dublin studio’s leading brand is Sneaky Bears, which reached number 24 on the top selling Gear VR charts, while its sequel Sneaky Bears Rollercoaster reached number two.

WarDucks has now launched a new version of Sneaky Bears as a full-length VR game on the PSVR and Oculus Rift, with a Vive version launching soon.

Steve has been a games journalist on and off since the first PlayStation made games ‘cool’, but he’s never forgotten the thrill of finding a Space Invaders machine in the wild. Neuromancer is one of his favourite books and The Matrix is one of his favourite movies, so he’s been ready for VR all his life.
