Ex-InnoGames staff get funding for new mobile studio Sviper

Former InnoGames, Bipoint and Goodgame employees have teamed up to open a new mobile games studio in Hamburg, Germany called Sviper.

The studio has been founded by Michael Reichert, Mark Buchholz and Ole Schaper. All three have worked at InnoGames, as well as numerous other companies such as Bigpoint, Goodgame and Splitscreen Studios.

Money rush

As reported by Venturebeat, the developer has already raised a seed round from VC firm Global Founders Capital.

It aims to use the money to bring in new staff to help develop and launch multiple games over the next few months.

Sviper’s first game will be Wild City Rush: Urban Jungle Adventure, set to be released on iOS and Android.

“The first big investment in Sviper comes with perfect timing. It enables us to start building a portfolio of unique high-quality games,” said Sviper co-founder Ole Schaper.

“With this financial backing, we will hire top talent and are in the best position to capitalise on the industry’s huge potential.”
