Voice-activated games developer Labworks has secured a £500,000 ($639,515) investment.
As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, the funding round was led by RLC Ventures.
"The widespread adoption of voice game technologies has been quietly gathering steam over the last few years," RLC Ventures founder and CEO Reece Chowdhry said.
"In 2019, 200 million voice devices were sold globally, and this trend doesn't appear to be slowing."
The money will be used to create a subscription service for the company's library of Alex and Google Assistant games.
The London-based firm was founded in 2016, and it has created various titles including Trivia Hero and Star Commander. Overall, its library of games has been played than five million times.
"The Labworks leadership team believe this transition to a subscription model will service the growing demand for voice-led technology," said Labworks.
"The new service will be designed to cater for both gamers and the needs of wider sectors such as education and the visually impaired community."
