Facebook and mobile game developer Geewa has today announced the closing of a $4.2 million funding round, led by Springtide Ventures, member of the KKCG Group. The Czech Republic-based developer is behind games like Pool Live Tour, Age of Defenders and Munchie Mania, and will use the funding to create even more games for browser and mobile platforms.

Right now, Geewa’s plan is to release three new games in 2014, as well as support their current games with additional features and content.

“Being true believers in Games-as-a-Service we are striving to build sustainable multiplayer games that keep our players excited for many years. We are glad that with KKCG Group we have found a strong financial partner who shares our vision and strategy on games development and is actively supporting us in establishing Geewa as a driving force in games production within the CEE Region.” said Geewa CEO, Jens Hilgers.

While some developers (like Zynga) are turning away from Facebook in favor of heavy mobile development, Geewa will continue to support the social gaming platform for years to come. In addition to the three new games this year, the company will “continue to launch multiple new games per year across all platforms.”
