Development Studio Serious Parody has raised over £1million in investment to expand the studio’s games portfolio. This will allow the company to establish a new dedicated studio, based in Dundee and recruit 18 new members of staff in the coming months.
Serious Parody has raised the majority of the money from private investors, with a further £230,000 coming from a regional selective assistance grant.
The investment has allowed Serious Parody to begin an immediate recruitment drive, looking for multiple programmers, artists and animators.
The company’s first title, Wrestling Manager was released for iOS devices several months ago. The game has received critical acclaim and remains one of the only management games on the App Store which focuses on the hugely popular sport.
