Social and Casual Game Co Zattikka Raises $5.5 Million

A United Kingdom-based game developer called Zattikka has raises $5.5 million in a round led by Notion Capital, a venture fund also located in the UK.

Zattikka is most active through nearly identical casual game portals like BadHed and Gimme5games.com, which it acquired last September. The company also has iPhone and Twitter games, though (a favorite title: Blocks With Letters On) and a Facebook game portal called Games For The Planet.

Two former Virgin games executives founded Zattikka in 2009. The company has published more than 100 games, and claims 77 million plays during its lifetime.
