TinyBuild plans to staff up and develop more games with the investment.

TinyBuild, the indie developer and publisher behind games like Clustertruck, Hello Neighbor, No Time to Explain, The Final Station, Mr Shifty and more, announced last week that it received a major investment.

The source of the investment hasn’t been made public, but TinyBuild told GeekWire, via email, that it has raised $15m (£11.5m) to further fund its development and publishing ambitions through “organized chaos”.

“We don’t necessarily hire for specific roles, rather build roles around people’s skills – and when the industry changes, morph those roles into whatever is relevant at the time. I strongly believe it’s dangerous to build companies in the games industry that rely on a strict structure with specific roles – the industry is dynamic, and so is tinyBuild. The flip side of this is that it can often feel like everything is on fire. Organized chaos is what I call it!” – Alex Nichiporchik, CEO, TinyBuild

TinyBuild currently employs 27 staff, and received a $3.75m investment from the Makers Fund in 2018.

In the short term, TinyBuild plans to use its new investment to hire in the Seattle, Washington and Amsterdam, Netherlands offices. Expect to see more game announcements in the future from what is already a very busy publisher.
