22 November 2019:
Coherence has raised $2.5 million in Seed Funding. The funding round was led by Firstminute Capital.
Finnish fund Sisu Game Ventures, and the veteran investor Paul Heydon also participated in the funding round.
Dino Patti, CEO of Coherence, said, “With this investment, we’re looking to grow our team in Malmö, and are also exploring the possibilities of building strategic satellite offices in other cities with large developer communities.”
Dino Patti added, “We are very excited about removing the limit of scale and adding the possibility of full real-time persistence into a game from the beginning, as it has the potential to fundamentally change the way we create and consume games. I don’t feel that game developers are properly led in the right direction at the moment. Too many are looking at the bigger productions for inspiration and that often gets boring — I’d love to see what happens when creatives can think more freely in this space.”
Dino Patti further added, “We want to break the cycle of rehashing the same online game designs over and over due to limited technology. With our platform, we aspire to get out of the developer’s way so they can try out crazy creative ideas with minimal risk. We’d love to see coherence used at game jams.”
Coherence will launch in 2020, with a pioneer program planned for early next year.
