German startup MegaDev secures $1.9M to develop its cheat codes software
As reported by gameindustry.biz, MegaDev, a Munich-based developer of single-player PC game customization software, has raised $1.9 million in a Series A round of funding.
Existing backer Engelhardt Kaupp Kiefer & Co and private business angels including Andreas Ronken, CEO at Ritter Sport, participated in the round.
MegaDev is developing Plitch, a trainer software platform, which enables gamers to customize their PC titles with cheat codes to make games easier or more challenging. It works only with offline single-player games to prevent cheats to be used online. For that purpose, MegaDev has built-in its own firewall Plitch Gateway.
According to the startup’s data, Plitch activates over 33,8000 cheats, like infinite health or ammo, in more than 2,600 games including Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The platform operates on a subscription-based model starting from $4,99 per month.
