Scirra accept investment

by Ashley | 19th, September 2011

We're very excited to announce that Scirra Ltd has accepted angel investment! This means we've reached a deal with a private investor to help finance the running of Scirra in return for a share of the company.

What does this mean for you? Basically, we're going to keep working as hard as ever on regular updates for both Construct 2 and the site. The investment guarantees our financial security for the foreseeable future, during which we can be working full-time. No part-time jobs necessary on our part, and no reason not to keep steaming ahead as we've been doing. Just us working to make Construct 2 as good as possible for you!

We hope this helps eliminate any worry anyone had over where we were headed. We'd also like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your support since our launch. Many of you have had kind and encouraging words to offer - and buying the odd license of course! - and it is much appreciated by us here at Scirra. We're working super hard to make Construct 2 the best game creator out there, and at times it can be stressful and difficult, but it makes it fun and rewarding to have you lot around to keep us going :) So hang on tight, there's much more to come!

Now follow us and share this

My congratulations on finding an investor! Glad your personal income is secured for now by that. Or at least, that's what it sounds like.

Now I'm looking forward to making something awesome with C2 even more! :)

Congrats! All that is missing that would make this the perfect newsbit is if said secret investor had some sort of awesome name like Metatron...

Future is certainly looking every brighter for this project, as is my likelihood of grabbing a nice license of it when money/time/"etc" avails.
