2014 has been a good year for companies with the words "game" and "analytics" in their title.
Scottish outfit deltaDNA (previously GamesAnalytics) has raised $5 million in funding, while its one-time Danish namesake and rival GameAnalytics has also announced its funding round.
It's closed its Series A funding round, raising $5.5 million, bringing the company's total funding to $8 million.
Beta Angels and the new management team - CEO Luke Aviet, VP of Strategic Partnerships Nick Roveta, and Chief Commercial Officer Claus Moseholm who all previously worked together at AOL acquisition GoViral - led the round.
Existing funders Sunstone Capital, CrunchFund, Jimmy Maymann and René Rechmann also participated.
