Blockchain-based casual game developer Gomble has attracted its first seed investment. This investment was led by Binance Labs, Spartan, and Shima Capital, famous venture capital firms in the Web 3.0 world, with Altos Ventures, Animoca Brands, Crit Ventures, Planetarium, and others participating. While the investment amount and company value remain undisclosed, the funds will be used to recruit development and design manpower, invest in infrastructure for real-time service, and expand marketing for its upcoming game launch.
Gomble is a blockchain game developer pioneering the game market based on its thorough user base, global expertise, and fast and concise production capabilities. With a focus on the token economy, the Korean startup aims to create games where all users equally value fun, the essence of the game. Its first game, Rumby Stars, is a social casual game platform where users can team up to compete in various types of PVP-based casual games. The game will be launched in Southeast Asia in early May and gradually expand its market to the Americas, South America, East Asia, and Europe.
The Korean game developer is also creating a metaverse where various NFT holders can enjoy Rumby Stars with characters that reflect their identities through GaaS (Game as a Service) in Rumby World, which is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2023. With the investment, Gomble plans to introduce more diverse games and services and provide continuous and unique fun to users worldwide.
Jihoon Byeon, CEO of Gomble, said, “Unlike existing blockchain games that focus on core games, Gomble aims to target the global market as a casual genre blockchain game so that even users who are new to games can enjoy it. With the investment as a starting point, we will introduce more diverse games and services and strive to provide continuous and unique fun to users worldwide.”
