Moblyng Raises $2.65M For Mobile Games, Partners With Playdom

Mobile/social developer and publisher Moblyng revealed that it raised $2.65 million in funding, and announced a partnership with social game developer Playdom (Sorority Life, Mobsters) to publish the studio's titles on mobile platforms.
Mobile/social developer and publisher Moblyng revealed that it raised $2.65 million in funding from existing investors Mohr Davidow Ventures and Deep Fork Capital, bringing its total amount raised to $10.65 million since the Redwood City, CA-based company opened in 2006. It also announced a partnership with social game developer Playdom. Moblyng's platform enables it to publish the same game across various smartphone platforms (iPhone, Android, WebOS, and more) and on Facebook. The firm's new deal with Playdom will allow it to publish the developer's social network titles like Mobsters and Sorority Life on those mobile platforms for Symbian, Blackberry, Palm, and Android devices. The mobile platform company has previously partnered with other social game developers like LOLapps but also publishes its own games, such as Dungeon Quest, M:Poker, M:Mafia, and M:Vampire. It's worked with Latino social network QuePasa, too. In the past year alone, Moblyng has seen more than 5 million downloads for its games. "[The Playdom deal] is really big for us because it validates our technology," said Moblyng CEO Stewart Putney, according to a report from VentureBeat. "Our architecture lets us develop a game quickly and make iterations of it as quickly as web-based game developers can."
