British studio nDreams, which quietly made a mint developing content for the dearly departed PlayStation Home before turning to focus on VR game development, has raised £2 million (~$3 million USD) from extant investor Mercia Technologies.

That's a decent chunk of change, and notable because nDreams plans to spend some of it on publishing both its own VR experiences and those of other indie studios. 

The company is also spending some of it on expanding its roster by hiring a handful of developers with experience at studios like SCE London, Rocksteady and Frontier Developments.

They join as nDreams works towards releasing VR game The Assembly next year  on PC and PS4, having already launched Gunner and Perfect Beach for Samsung's Gear VR headset earlier this year.

If you're curious to know what nDreams has learned from taking the VR plunge, check out our conversation with founder Patrick O'Luanaigh earlier this year about overcoming some of the challenges of multi-platform VR game development.
