Finland’s gametech Spectarium raises €5M led by BITKRAFT Ventures
Oulu-based Spectarium, a company that builds cross-platform action RPGs (Role-playing Video Games) has raised €5 million in a seed round led by BITKRAFT Venture. The investment will help to scale the team and further develop the gameplay of its first RPG title, Myths.
- Spectarium was founded in 2019 by Romain Schneider, Mark Peterson, and Plarium co-founders Avi & Gabi Shale. The company’s flagship title Myths, is an action RPG game that puts fun and endless gameplay at the forefront, inspired by ancient mythology and classic games.
“Eight years ago, the Spectarium core team came together with a shared mission: to create a game envisioned by our community. This journey fostered a deep trust with our global player base and solidified our team’s passion for crafting games that resonate. While we remain community-centric, the studio has evolved and is committed to developing cross-platform, mass-market games that captivate gamers worldwide. By merging standout visuals with generated content, we aim to craft unique and endless gameplay experiences,”commented Spectarium CEO, Romain Schneider.
- A fundamental concept underpinning the game’s design is the creation of an engine that tailors gameplay activities and the proprietary Mythological theme IP to match the preferences of each individual player. As a result, one player’s journey might revolve around engaging in boss battles within the realm of Valhalla, while another embarks on a journey through the intricacies of a Mayan temple.
- The fresh round was led by BITKRAFT Venture, a global investment platform for gaming, Web3, and immersive technology based in Colorado. Currently, it serves a portfolio of over 125 startups. US-based Delphi Digital and Framework Ventures also joined the investment.
- Spectarium will scale the team and further develop the gameplay of its first RPG title, Myths, which is scheduled to soft launch to specific targeted audiences in 2024.
