Framework and Bitkraft lead $6 million seed funding into gaming studio Jungle
and Framework Ventures co-led a $6 million seed funding round into Jungle, a Brazil-based web3 gaming studio. Delphi Digital, Karatage, Fourth Revolution Capital, Monoceros, 32bit Ventures, Stateless Ventures, Snackclub and Norte Ventures also took part in the round, which closed at the tail end of last year.
The funding will be primarily used to build out its team, marketing, and distribution for the games it produces. Co-founded by Beraldo, Giulio Ferraro and Lucas Kertzman, Jungle differs from other web3 gaming studios in that it seeks to acquire "underutilized" intellectual property rather than developing it in-house. By leapfrogging over the often-lengthy development process, Beraldo claimed that this speeds up the release by around two to three years. Jungle says that its first game, a web3 shooter, will be released this year on mobile devices.
