August 1st, 2008 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Companies & M&A | No Comments »

iPhone gaming start-up NG-moco has managed to get some funding from
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers with participation from Maples

With the funding, Bing Gordon, a former chief creative officer from EA, will join the board. This is an interesting step as the founder, Neil Young, is also former EA.

“The iPhone is the next great game platform and we see an incredible opportunity to build games worthy of the customers that use it,” said Neil Young, CEO, ngmoco. “With Bing, Kleiner Perkins and Maples Investments, we have great partners who share our passion to create a new type of publisher and radically reshape the mobile games industry.”

“Apple’s iPhone has the potential to be one of the best portable gaming platforms ever created,” said Gordon. “After a decade of working closely with Neil on category-defining games, I believe ngmoco has the potential to produce killer apps that will help define this new device.”
