Hiro Capital, an entrepreneur-led venture capital fund focused on backing innovators in video games, the metaverse, esports and digital fitness, has invested in three international video game studios – Snowprint in Stockholm/Berlin, Double Loop Games in San Francisco and Happy Volcano in Belgium

The trio join UK and US Games studios Flavourworks, Polyarc and Lightfox in the Hiro Capital portfolio, alongside specialists in the gamification of games streaming and digital fitness LIV.tv, Edgegap, FitXR and Nurvv.

Ian Livingstone, co-founding partner at Hiro Capital, says: “We are excited to begin 2021 by announcing Hiro’s investment in three amazing games studios, Snowprint, Double Loop and Happy Volcano. Each studio has demonstrated innovation and expertise in developing fun to play games which resonate with today’s audiences. I’m especially pleased that one of the studios came through our first Dark Star event for emerging indies looking to scale their businesses. If only venture capital had been interested in the games sector back in the 1970s, I might not have had to sleep in a van during the early days of Games Workshop!”
