Mobile game startup Kopla Games has finalised a 700 000-euro seed investment round. The funding comes from German angel investor and serial entrepreneur Klaas Kersting.

Kersting is known from founding online games provider Gameforge and mobile game publisher and developer flaregames. He has also acted as an early stage investor for many startups including Supercell, Spacetime Studios and iQU.

Kopla Games’ mission is to introduce action RPGs to everyone. The team’s speciality is their systematic approach to quickly discover what the players are truly interested in, by continuously validating their direction with feedback and metrics, only focusing on what has the potential of becoming the next big thing. Kopla Games’ debut title, codenamed ‘Project Nonstop’, will be launched in cooperation with flaregames in 2016.

“Kopla are a highly experienced group with a unique mindset when it comes to developing mobile games,” says Kersting. “They have very impressive plans to expand their team in a scalable way and have an awesome first product that is already showing itself to be a potential hit.”
