British MOBA dev Edge Case nets $2.7M to expand into Asian markets

The studio best known for its debut space MOBA Fractured Space, which is currently on Steam's Early Access service, will now turn to focus on mobile games and bringing its work to Asian markets.

Guildford-based Edge Case Games has completed a round of fundraising with £1.75 million (~$2.7 million USD) in its pocket and a new partnership with Chinese investor Seasun Games to begin publishing games in Asian markets.

What's interesting here is that Edge Case is finishing out a funding round it started talking about over the summer, when it raised roughly $1.3 million to fund further development of its tactical space MOBA Fractured Space, currently being sold on Steam's Early Access service.

Seasun Games joined in on this funding as part of a partnership that will see Edge Case, which was founded as a spinoff of Strike Suit Zero studio Born Ready Games, turning its development experience towards making mobile games and breaking into new markets in Asia.

"A £1m investment from Seasun Games will help drive our business forward," stated Edge Case chief James Brooksby in a press release confirming the deal. "The strategic relationship with Seasun Games, and the opportunity to expand into Asia with their support, is a game changer for us."
