Rocket Ninja has closed $7.5 million in Series B funding led by private investor Marcel Boekhoorn. The company will use the funds to expand its team, products, and the implementation of Shr3D, the company’s 3D content platform for games and other entertainment on PCs and connected devices.
According to Rocket Ninja, its technology lowers the barrier to entry and runs without additional plug-ins even on low-spec, non-hardware-accelerated systems with limited bandwidth. The company released its first game Wrestler Unstoppable (pictured) on Facebook, earlier in 2011.
Oded Pelled, chief executive officer of Rocket Ninja, said, “3D revolutionized the gaming industry, and it will forever change the social web by delivering a new dimension in self expression and interactivity. The team at Rocket Ninja has cracked the code for making 3D applications accessible, easy to use and fun.”
Rocket Ninja also operates an affiliate publishing model that comprises design, art, engineering, deployment management and post-release metrics analysis.
The new funding is in addition to the $3.5 million the company raised in March from an unnamed source.
