Social game developer Idle Games recently secured $10 million in its second round of funding, which it will use to further develop its games catalog and its proprietary Idle Engine, reports VentureBeat
The company's Idle Engine is a social recommendation tool that suggests new people for users to interact with by examining their Facebook profiles. The engine sends in-game characters into another player's world to help establish new online relationships.
In September, Idle Games launched its first title, Idle Worship
, a free-to-play god game that has players performing miracles or curses to gather a large following among the game's population of silly creatures.
The company was founded in 2009, and received $9 million in funding before this most recent round. Idle Games is currently developing two additional titles using its Idle Engine.
