Odyssey Interactive attracts $19m investment

Canadian game developer Odyssey Interactive has brought in a $19 million investment.

This Series A round was led by the Makers Fund, with Anthos Capital, The Mini Fund, Andreessen Horowitz and angel investor Mitch Lasky also chipping in some cash. This money is set to fund the developer's debut title, Omega Strikers, which is currently in open beta on PC and is set to come to console and mobile devices in the future.

“The reception to this early version of the game has humbled us – the fanart, streams, and highlight reels have given us a glimpse into the sort of impact we dream of having for players all over the world,” Odyssey co-founder Dax Andrus said.

“Our goal as a dev team has always been to inspire and ignite the competitive spirit of players, and we believe we can hit that aspirational height by integrating their feedback from the beta, and by doubling down on launch.”

Makers Fund partners Ryann Lai added: “The Odyssey Interactive team has an impressively well-rounded, hands-on experience in developing, shipping and running live service games. The launch of their first title, Omega Strikers, showcases their ability to create an endearing IP and to execute with the nimbleness, precision and savviness necessary to succeed in today’s highly competitive content market.”

Odyssey Interactive was set up by veterans of Riot Games in August 2020.
