BoosterMedia raises over $5 million to expand its HTML5 gaming platform
Dutch HTML5 gaming platform and developer Booster Media has closed its Series A funding round.

It raised over $5 million in a round lead by mobile commerce group Neomobile. Existing investors Truffle Capital and Solid Ventures were also involved.

The money will be used to add to the company's technology and game teams in Amsterdam, as well as opening new offices in Singapore and Sao Paolo, Brazil, before the end of 2013.

BoosterMedia also recently opened an office in Tokyo to expand its relationship with Japan's leading games publishers.

Games everywhere

"Most game developers now have to compete with hundreds of thousands of rival products on the traditional app-stores and they're finding it almost impossible to get their games discovered," said CEO Laurens Rutten.

"With HTML5 however, their products can still be offered in the various app-stores, but it's up to the developer to distribute it via the mobile web as well.

"We are giving them additional choices and allowing them more time to be creative with their games rather than just re-coding for multiple platforms."
