Mobile gameplay video startup Kamcord nets $15m, led by GungHo

Now the company has $15 million more in the bank to pursue further development of its recording/sharing solution for iOS and Android -- and the social network that hosts the video.
Today, mobile gameplay video and social sharing company Kamcord announced a $15 million investment round led by Puzzle & Dragons publisher GungHo Online Entertainment. Tencent and Wargaming, alongside venture companies and individuals, also joined the funding round. Kamcord has launched its product on both iOS and Android. Co-founder Aditya Rathnam tells VentureBeat that its Android SDK has caught up with its iOS SDK in terms of installs. This new $15 million comes on top of a $7.1 million investment round this past spring. "By partnering with Kamcord, we're expanding our community, as we know community-­created gameplay videos are an indispensable form of information, entertainment, and community engagement," said GungHo Online Entertainment America CEO Jun Iwasaki in a statement. In March, Unity acquired Kamcord rival Applifier, and has announced plans to integrate its video-sharing social-service Everyplay directly into the engine.
