Israeli mobile games developer Comunix has announced its $30 million Series A funding round.
Comunix is best known for its Pokerface mobile game, which experienced strong growth during COVID-19 lockdowns, in part thanks to its video chat feature. Pokerface has now accumulated over one million users.
Other investors included Powerhouse Capital, Woori Investments and Altshuler Shaham.
"The explosion in popularity of Pokerface is a testament to the strength of Comunix's team and its unique, community-centric approach to classic social gaming,” commented March Capital’s Gregory Milken.
“We look forward to working closely with Comunix and applying our significant gaming and operational expertise to support the company's next phase of rapid growth."
Founded in 2018 and based in Tel Aviv, Comunix currently has around 50 staff. It will use the funding to scale headcount and Pokerface’s audience.
Comunix head of content marketing Oren Todoros recently spoke about the five trends that will drive social mobile gaming in 2021.
