iVentureCapital Invests in Social Browser Game Developer Pro 3 Games
Investing in Austrian game studio, Pro 3 Games (www.pro3games.com), iVentureCapital (www.iventurecapital.com) expands its portfolio by including a developer of social browser games.
Pro 3 Games has taken a new approach in developing the world’s first social browser game: “Starforce Delta” is not a classic MMO, but an asynchronous multi-player game. The term signifies that the game works like other social games in which players share the same universe but do not necessarily play simultaneously. This RPG’s functionality is also expanded by a number of social and viral capabilities, allowing users to share their progress as they would in a social game. The sci-fi game’s space setting is transported by console-like, premium-quality 3D graphics based on the most advanced Adobe Flash and Away3D technology.
“We at Pro 3 Games are enthusiastic gamers ourselves: ‘Starforce Delta’ is our first step toward creating the universe of games we have always dreamed about,” as Alexander Seifert, CEO of Pro 3 Games, describes the development of their social browser game. “Over time, we want to build a community that will be an active force in the continuing development of the ‘Starforce Delta’ universe. This can take the form of player alliances or other actions which can influence the storyline of the entire game. iVentureCapital understands our vision, and we look forward to working together.”
Michael Reul, co-founder and CEO of iVentureCapital, adds: “The innovative approach taken by Pro 3 Games has great potential to attract new target audiences and to foster an active player community. Apart from their years of experience in game development, the start-up team have particularly impressed us with their technical prowess, which puts ‘Starforce Delta’ into the same league as PlayStation 3 games on a visual level.”
iVentureCapital is not alone in siding with the Pro 3 Games team. At the Pioneers Festival in Vienna, a tech start-up competition, “Starforce Delta” prevailed against other Austrian contestants as the game which is the most promising and most capable of competing in the market.
