New multiplayer iPhone game platform Z2Live lands $3 million financing
A new Seattle-based mobile social gaming platform, Z2Live, has just landed itself $3 million in a second round of financing after already raising $1 million to kick things off.
Z2Live, founded by Microsoft veteran Damon Danieli and mobile developer David Bluhm, is pegged as "the first mobile multiplayer game platform", and offers a host of services to iPhone and iPod touch developers.

Supporting a wide range of social gaming genres, such as strategies, RPGs, racers and (shortly) first-person shooters, Z2Live adds multiplayer functions, leverages social networks and subscription functions to games, and is free to use.

The company does however take a share of the game's profits, which at least gives indie developers the opportunity to easily impliment these social features without any initial outlay.

Yes. Spanner's his real name. And, yes, he's heard that joke before.
