Big Fish Games Raises $83.3 Million For Casual Game Distribution
Big Fish Games , an online portal for both online and downloadable computer games, has closed an $83.3 million funding round led by Balderton Capital, General Catalyst Partners, and Salmon River Capital. Big Fish Games was originally founded in 2002 as a game development studio, but gradually expanded its focus as it began distributing games created by other developers. The site now has partnerships with over 500 developers and says that their games see over one million daily downloads. The site also features a collection of online browser-based games as well as a basic social network.
