Green Throttle Games has raised $6 million in Series A funding led by Trinity Ventures with participation from DCM; Trinity general partner Ajay Chopra is joining the company's board. The funds will be used to help the company create games and devices that will support mobile gaming on TVs.
"We believe a large percentage of consumers will use their phones or tablets to play games on a TV, and mobile-to-TV gaming could quickly grow to surpass the console market," said Charles Huang, co-founder and CEO of Green Throttle Games. "By building a straightforward way to enjoy mobile games together with your friends, we hope to revolutionize how mobile games are played."
"The ability to play mobile games on a big screen TV is very attractive, and Green Throttle's leadership is well poised to bring in the kind of top quality games and industry connections that are needed to turn the Atlas controller and Green Throttle's solution into a household name,” added Chopra. “I have always surrounded myself with entrepreneurs who know how to delight their end users and Green Throttle aims to do just that.”
