Chroma Ventures invests in Edinburgh video games studio

Jan 31, 2022

Chroma Ventures invests in Edinburgh video games studio Equity stake should allow Ant Workshop to focus on developing its own intellectual property (L to R): Tony Gowland of Ant Workshop, with Paddy Burns and Chris van der Kuyl of Chroma Ventures Ant Workshop has secured a "significant financial investment" that will enable the development of new titles, including one it hopes to bring to market next year. Chroma Ventures, the investment arm of Dundee-based 4J Studios, has invested a seven-figure sum in the BAFTA-nominated games studio based in Edinburgh, which should allow it to devote more time and resource to developing Dungeon Golf, a concept the team recently created. Ant Workshop was founded in 2015 by Tony Gowland, a games designer with more than 20 years’ experience, who has held senior positions at Rockstar Games - where he worked on Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption - and ActivisionBlizzard, which Microsoft acquired this month for $70bn. Gowland will recruit two new full-time employees and additional freelance talent to supplement his existing team of eight developers, whose combined experience extends to more than 40 video game titles. He commented: “I’m incredibly excited for the future and what Ant Workshop will be able to achieve with Chroma Ventures’ investment - it not only allows our team to focus exclusively on making our new IP and games the very best they can be, but enables us to tap into the vast experience Chris and Paddy bring, both in terms of developing games and businesses.” Read More The investment from Chroma Ventures will see its principals, Paddy Burns and Chris van der Kuyl, join Ant Workshop’s board as directors. In 2005, Burns and Van der Kuyl founded Dundee-based game developer 4J Studios, which is best known for developing Minecraft for Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo games consoles. Chroma Ventures channels flexible capital into a range of early-stage and established businesses, particularly those that are data-led or developing innovative technology. Ant Workshop becomes the latest addition to a portfolio which includes two independent Dundee-based games studios in Stormcloud and Puny Astronaut, augmented reality technology company Blippar, commercial insurance platform Broker Insights , and television analytics provider TVSquared. Chroma Ventures principal Chris van der Kuyl said: “Tony is an experienced and highly talented designer who has gathered an exceptional team around him to deliver great content across multiple platforms. “Having a brilliant concept for a game is just the start - studios need time and space to focus fully on developing those unique ideas and making them the best they can be. “We hope this investment will allow Tony and his team to concentrate on this project and we can’t wait to watch it take shape.”
