Tel Aviv-based mobile casual game studio Everybuddy Games announced on Tuesday it has raised $15 million in a Series A funding round, which was led by Makers Fund and also saw participation from Key1 Capital and Gigi Levy Weiss.
Founded in 2018, Everybuddy is mostly known for its rising casual title Lucky Buddies, which was released earlier this year and have been downloaded over 1 million times on Google Play Store alone.
Using the funding money, the studio plans to support the popular game, create other casual titles, and also grow its team.
“At Everybuddy, we take pride in our work and the fact that everyone on our united team can make a significant impact with their professional and personal contributions,” said Adi Dagan, the Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Everybuddy Games.
“We are extremely proud of our ability to grow and scale rapidly despite today’s challenging financial environment. Having Makers Fund and Key1 Capital join our support system is a huge vote of confidence in our team, and in our ability to continue establishing Lucky Buddies as one of the industry’s leading games,” he added.
Curtis Urbanowicz, investor at Makers Fund, commented: ‘’Adi, Yair, Boaz, and the team at Everybuddy Games have quickly built on the success of Lucky Buddies in an evolving mobile gaming market. RPGs and social layers create a lot of room for innovation and are attracting new players to the genre. We are delighted to be a part of their journey.”
