Vietgame.asia – The San Francisco company is announcing it has raised $2.2 million in funding and launched Mino Monsters 2: Evolution on iOS and Android devices. That puts the company into the upper tier of successful mobile-game studios in the $30 billion mobile-game market.

Previously known as MinoMonsters, the company is rebranding under the name Mino Games. It focuses on creating games that mix original character-driven brands with midcore free-to-play game mechanics. It tries to make them accessible to the mass market.

The money comes from existing investor Andreessen Horowitz and new investors SparkLabs Global, Luminari Capital, Ace & Company, and others. The studio is made of Zynga, Kabam, Sega, and Hasbro alumni. Josh Buckley, Mino Games’ CEO, was previously the youngest CEO to raise funding from Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator. He sold his first game company at age 15.

“We have lofty aspirations to create a globally successful games company, one that shapes the future of entertainment,” Buckley said in a statement. “This latest funding will help us realize this vision as we speed into 2016. The funds will be used to fuel marketing Mino Monsters 2 and grow the team for our next titles.”

Mino Games was founded in 2011 by Buckley and Sasha MacKinnon The original title debuted in September 2012, and it was a top-10 grossing game in 66 countries. If you’re thinking that it prospered because Nintendo didn’t have Pokémon game on smartphones, that might be a good theory. But the company doesn’t view its games as derivative.[su_icon_panel background=”transparent” border=”1px none #cccccc” shadow=”0px 0px 0px #eeeeee” icon=”icon: html5″ icon_color=”#1f6dc9″ icon_size=”70″ url=”http://www.minomonsters.com/”][/su_icon_panel][su_icon_panel background=”transparent” border=”1px none #cccccc” shadow=”0px 0px 0px #eeeeee” icon=”icon: facebook-square” icon_color=”#1f6dc9″ icon_size=”70″ url=”https://www.facebook.com/games/minomonsters/?fbs=-1&ref=br_rs”][/su_icon_panel][su_icon_panel background=”transparent” border=”1px none #cccccc” shadow=”0px 0px 0px #eeeeee” icon=”icon: twitter-square” icon_color=”#1f6dc9″ icon_size=”70″ url=”https://twitter.com/minomonsters”][/su_icon_panel]
