Emergent Game Technologies, builder of applications for video-game development, has snapped up $14.4 million in equity, amending a filing from February reporting that the company raised more than $12.5 million, according to VentureWire.
Based in Calabasa, Calif., the company says it can slash game development costs by eliminating some need for back-end support. Its platform is used by high-profile clients like Disney and Electronic Arts and is capable of building games for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii.
Adena Ventures, Hopewell Ventures, Jerusalem Venture Partners, Walker Ventures and Worldview Technology Partners contributed to the recent round. Previously, the company has taken capital from Cisco Systems, Copan GmbH, Mount Washington Partners and the state of West Virginia’s Job Investment Trust.
