GamesBeat Summit 2021
BebopBee, a Silicon Valley game studio focused on match-3 puzzle games, has raised $2 million in funding.
The money comes from Bitkraft Ventures, 1Up Ventures, IGG, and angel investors Lei Ding (the founder of Dfinity) and Rohit Singal, the founder of Machine.ai. BebobBee will use the capital to build live operations and a marketing program to acquire more players.
Former TinyCo, Zynga, and Jam City veterans Rajeev Nagpal, Cristian Zanier, and Anton Vikharev started the Fremont, California-based company.
The studio wants to pioneer the next-generation of free-to-play match-3 puzzlers on mobile. Its most recent game, What a Wonderful World, has players solving thousands of challenging puzzle adventures, travel the world, and meet locals with unique stories to tell.
