BITKRAFT Esports Ventures announced that it has succesfully led Tonk Tonk Games $2 million seed funding round with participation from Modern Times Group. Tonk Tonk Games is a mobile gaming company with a singular focus on providing players with continuous moments of delight through fun game play, personalized experiences, and high spectatability.
The company will use the investment to accelerate its global growth by scaling its talented team and establishing headquarters in Austin, Texas while working to launch uFighter, a competitive real-time multiplayer fighting game where the main player is a digitized avatar of the gamer. uFighter players can engage with people they know personally through highly expressive, customized 3D animations of themselves generated from uploaded selfies.
“We are deeply impressed with Tonk Tonk’s culture and their emotionally resonant, proprietary personalized facial animation technology, which make them a clear stand-out in the massive mobile games market,” commented BITKRAFT Founder and Managing Partner, Jens Hilgers. “uFighter is offering adrenalizing synchronous multiplayer matches and will ignite new excitement for the Fighting Game genre which we feel still craves for an iconic and innovative IP on mobile.”
Tonk Tonk Games is led by a distinguished team of game and animated-film veterans with decades of collective experience from Blue Sky, Wizards of the Coast, EA, Disney, and Pixar.
