Investment to help Mindshapes grow and bring new products to market

Educational apps publisher Mindshapes has secured $5 million of series A investment, the company has announced.

The firm, which also publishes browser based games, said it will use the investment to continue its expansion and bring its two new products, interactive storytelling game Magic Town and Language City to market.

“We are passionate about using the latest technology and contemporary educational thinking to change the way that children learn around the world,” said Mindshapes CEO David Begg.

“This investment will accelerate our plans to become the world's most trusted digital publisher of high quality educational games, books and learning worlds as we continue to expand.”

London and San Franciso-based Mindshapes was founded in 2010 with the aim to publish games promoting “learning through play”, releasing games such as Lingo Zoo, Casper’s Scare School and Meteor Math.
