Headed by Oculus cofounder Nate Mitchell, Mountaintop has raised $5.5 million for a player-vs.-player first-person shooter game.

The seed round comes from an unidentified group of investors, friends, and family. Mitchell’s cofounders include Matt Hansen, a former chief operating officer at Double Fine; Rich Lyons, formerly a developer at Naughty Dog and Vigil; and Mark Terrano, a former creative director at Oculus and cofounder at Hidden Path.

The company surfaced in June, and now it has nearly 20 full-time employees. The staff includes veterans from Epic, Blizzard, Naughty Dog, Respawn, Infinity Ward, Ubisoft, Raven, Turtle Rock, Double Fine, PopCap, and Oculus. The company is hiring, and its openings are listed here.
