US downloadable game developer D2C has closed a Series A financing round of approximately $6 million, with investors including Rubicon Venture Partners and 755 Capital Partners.

“The venture capital community has been very receptive to our business model of developing digital-to-consumer digital entertainment content,” said Scott Orr, CEO of D2C Games.

Mark Wilson, CEO of Rubicon Venture Partners, added: “D2C Games is lead by a proven senior management team that is responsible for generating more than $2 billion in revenue in the game industry.”

“We’re confident the D2C Games team knows the market for games and are creating compelling, original content for interactive entertainment consumers.”
