Gunjin Games gains investment from Ian Hetherington and Games Investor

Brighton startup Gunjin Games has announced a seed funding round, which also sees a trio of industry entrepreneurs joining the company.

Nick and Rick Gibson from Games Investor Consulting have invested with Nick taking a commercial and financial role in the company alongside Gunjin's studio head Nick Baynes.

Psygnosis co-founder Ian Hetherington, who is also involved with Evolution Studios and Midoki, has invested too and will be Gunjin's chairman.

Fun at the seaside

Formed by veterans who worked at Disney's Black Rock racing studio, notably on Split/Second, Gunjin was formed by Nick Baynes, art director Guy Mills and technical director Matt Ritchie.

Following this initial investment, it's now actively looking for staff as it ramps up production on its first unannounced and original title for mobile and tablets.

Indeed, it's already posted a programming job on the PocketGamer.biz jobs board.
