The funding round was led by Delta Partners and also saw participation from ACT Venture Capital. ¬†According to a statement from Digit CEO Richard Barnwell, the money raised from the round of funding will be used by the company to pursue “disrupting the industry with new cross platform technology and awesome games.”

Currently, Digit is working on its debut title, Kings of the Realm, a massively multiplayer strategy game that will reportedly work “across any connected device.” This takes the concept of cross platform gaming one step further, as these types of games are currently limited to certain device and platform types.

According to a statement by CMO Martin Frain, the titles the company is developing will also allow players to transition between devices to continue playing their game.

This latest round of funding brings the total raised by Digit to $3.75 million. Kings of the Realm is due out later this year and will also have a series of books launching around the same time from Penguin Publishing.
