As reported over on VentureBeat, mobile game developer Moblyng has filed SEC paperwork for a $1 million round of funding. The company, which started as FlipTrack in 2007 (an endeavor that saw them porting Flash slideshows to the mobile landscape), is responsible for the games m:poker and m:vampires.
There are no specific details available as to why they’ve requested the additional funding; both Mohr Davidow Ventures and Deep Fork Capital have already invested in the company to a tune of $8 million, but hopefully Moblyng will address the issue with an official announcement soon. Either way, this large of a sum is a nod to the power of casual gaming. When a company can receive over $9 million to, in part, create mobile games, you know the platform is growing, which is definitely a positive sign.
For now, speculate with us in the comments – what do you think they could be up to with all of that extra money?
