GFAL takes total funding to $7.6 million with seed round from Supercell and Mitch Lasky

Barcelona-based developer GFAL (Games for a Living) has announced a seed investment of $3.2 million, which takes its total funding to-date to $7.6 million. It also raised $4.4 million in pre-sales when it launched its GFAL token in March 2023.

Notable investors in the round include Finnish mobile game developer Supercell, Benchmark Capital’s Mitch Lasky and ex-ESL MD Heinrich Zetlmayer.

GFAL is currently working on several games with its debut being RPG Elemental Raiders, which has been in soft launch testing on mobile and PC over the past 12 months.

Other titles include match-3 mobile game Diamond Dreams while it’s working with external studios to publish casual jumper Jump Pump, sports RPG Soccer Legends and strategy title Dead Zombie.

Co-founded by game veterans from King, Activision Blizzard, EA and Netflix in 2021, the funding round also reconnects execs from pioneering mobile publisher Digital Chocolate. Both GFAL’s CEO Manel Sort and Supercell’s CEO Ilkka Paananen worked at Digital Chocolate, while GFAL’s CSO Trip Hawkins was its CEO.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working together with the team earlier in my career. We are excited to be part of their journey and see all the great things they’ll achieve,” commented Paananen.

“Working on a project alongside Trip and Ilkka, with whom I shared many thrilling and successful years at Digital Chocolate, is a dream come true, and I can’t wait to show the world the high caliber of games we are building,” added Sort.
