bunchball.bmpBunchball, a Redwood City start-up that lets people create Flash-based interactive games for multiple players, and then insert them in blogs and other Web sites, has raised around $2 million in in a first round of funding.

howhot.bmpBackers included Adobe Systems, which makes the Flash technology for these games and Granite Ventures, an SF venture firm that has been affiliated with Adobe in the past.

Bunchball was founded by Rajat Paharia and Sunil Singh. There’s more at the company’s blog, including a list of the games developed so far. They range from the classics like Asteroids to spicy but mindless “How hot?” (click on image at left).

The company had said it has raised money. But PE Week first reported the amount, citing a regulatory filing.
