Harmony Games – a visionary game development studio with a unique approach to the mobile puzzle gaming market – recently announced the successful closure of its seed round funding, raising an impressive $3 million. The funding round was led by Griffin Gaming Partners, one of the industry’s most prominent venture capital firms, alongside notable investors, Kristian Segerstrale, and Akin Babayigit. Harmony Games – launched by industry veterans Volkan Ediz, James Koh, and Joseph Kubiak – is on a mission to revolutionize the mobile gaming landscape. And the company’s debut game “Tiles Delight,” promises a novel puzzle experience, uniquely fusing connect-tile mechanics with elements found in other genres, resulting in a deeper and more enriching experience that will ultimately foster meaningful player engagement. “Tiles Delight” is the beginning for Harmony Games, as the company aims to build an entire universe “The World of Tiles,” with shared characters and narratives across 2-4 additional games.

The recent successful seed funding positions Harmony Games to actualize its vision – targeting the mobile puzzle game market with fresh gameplay and mechanics. And operating fully remotely, the company is actively hiring across North America, South America, and Europe.
