Game Closure, which makes it possible for mobile game studios to develop and publish across platforms, today announced a Series A financing round of $12 million led by Highland Capital Partners, with participation from Greylock Partners, Benchmark Capital, General Catalyst Partners and Charles River Ventures.

Andy Miller, general partner at Highland Capital Partners, has joined the company’s board of directors. “Game Closure represents the rare opportunity to invest in a company positioned to change the face of an industry,” he said.

Game Closure will use the funds to expand its business. Initially it plans to double the size of its 26-person team, and is actively recruiting for engineering, data analytics and design talent.

The company’s HTML5 game development SDK and engine is designed for single or multiplayer mobile games, and includes hooks for analytics, distribution, versioning, internationalization and other publishing features. Game Closure says it also makes it possible for a small team to build high-quality games within six weeks that can be distributed across iOS, Android and browsers.

Game Closure was founded in 2011 and participated in StartX, a student-led incubator whose mission is to help develop startups found by Stanford University students.
