Upstart publisher D2C Games, founded by former EA executive and Madden originator Scott Orr and tech expert Bart Besseling have announced that it has received $6 million in investments, led by Rubicon Venture Partners and 755 Capital Partners, to further its efforts on delivering digitally distributed social games. Profiled in March by Gamasutra, D2C says it aims to partner with other companies to publish games on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360, PC and 3G Mobile via direct download. Apart from its own internal studio Bigdog Games, which will create and publish casual social sports games and episodic content, the company also announced a partnership with comic and film company RAW Studios to digitally distribute independent comics as “digital video comics” for PSP, PC, and mobiles. Said Rubicon CEO Mark Wilson, “D2C Games is lead by a proven senior management team that is responsible for generating more than $2 billion in revenue in the game industry. We’re confident the D2C Games team knows the market for games and are creating compelling, original content for interactive entertainment consumers.”
