Best Fiends developer Seriously receives $5 million funding boost

Seriously, the studio behind the iOS puzzler Best Fiends, has announced $5 million in additional funding has been raised from its existing Seed Round investors.

The news, which comes before the firm prepares to commence a Series A funding round in the new year, means Seriously has raised $10 million during 2014.

The new funds will provide the perfect springboard for Seriously as it looks to take 2015 by storm with the release of the second title in the Best Fiends trilogy.

Old friends

Andrew Stalbow, CEO of Seriously, and Petri Järvile­hto, the firm's COO, have explained the additional cash will give the studio even more room to flex its creative muscles.

“We’ve been thrilled with the re­ac­tion to our first title,” said Stal­bow.

“The ad­di­tional fund­ing gives us extra fire­power to ex­tend our tal­ented team of 13 peo­ple as we take our strategy of cre­at­ing global en­ter­tain­ment brands ‘mo­bile first’ to a new level.”

“This is only the be­gin­ning," added Järvile­hto.

"We’re work­ing hard to take Best Fiends to the next level over the com­ing months, and we can’t wait to share our new fea­tures, con­tent, game play, char­ac­ters, as well as a few more sur­prises."

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
