Ogmento, an augmented reality (AR) video game developer, has raised $3.5 million in Series A equity financing to expand development of its AR game platform and operations in New York and Los Angeles.
The company will use the funding to add to its development teams and will also expand the core features of its technology as it prepares the release of several game titles.
"This investment allows us to expand our operations to support our growth while putting development resources into our own intellectual property," said Ori Inbar, co-founder and CEO of Ogmento. Through part of the financing, Matthew McCooe of Chart Venture Partners and Joe Del Guercio of CNF will join Ogmento's board of directors, along with founders Brad Foxhoven, Brian Selzer and Inbar.
Ogmento was founded in 2009 by several veterans of the video game industry. Using technology that overlays computer graphics onto real-world environments, Ogmento's AR games let users directly interact with their surrounding environment. The company is currently developing content for the iPhone, Android, PC and traditional game consoles.
