Ex-Rovio members form Boomlagoon, land $3.6 million in funding

BRB, launching a mobile studio

Helsinki-based studio Boomlagoon was founded a couple of years ago by ex-Rovio team members, coming off of their work on a little game called Angry Birds. They released a game called Noble Nutlings (great name!) last year.

Now they're working on new mobile games with the fat wad of cash they just pulled together. Their Series A, announced today, secured $3.6 million. The round was led by Northzone, with additional funding coming from Inventure and 360 Capital Partners. That's a pretty good pile for a studio of only eight members.

Boomlagoon has a new game coming very soon -- this month. All we know is that it's a "character-driven" title. I'm betting the folks that put up that $3.6 million are hoping that this game will be the next Angry Birds.
