Social games developer PlaySpace today announced via a press release that it secured $1.9 million in funding in an investment round led by PeopleFund with participation of the Spanish venture fund Faraday Ventures. The new funding will help PlaySpace further expand into Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking markets.
Since it was founded in 2011, PlaySpace has successfully launched a variety of Spanish language freemium games on Facebook and the Spanish, private social networking site Tuenti. There are currently 3 million users in PlaySpace’s community across the two social networking platforms, and the developer plans on expanding to iOS and Android soon.
