Mobile games firm MoMinis has raised $6 million for its Android-based games portal, PlayScape, in a second round of funding from Gemini Israel Ventures, GamesBeat reports.
Last year the firm launched its "mega-game" PlayScape, a single Android app that features a number of titles within. PlayScape allows users to bring experience points and currency accumulated in one game on to another. The cross-title app is designed to encourage users to try out other titles on its roster, offering developers the opportunity to be more easily dicovered in the Android marketplace. MoMinis itself provides designers with free development tools, marketing and distribution.
According to the firm's chief executive Itzik Frid, MoMinis will use this funding to continue building the app while enabling users with new ways to discover new releases. Plans are underway to also expand to iPhone, Windows Mobile and Facebook.
The company initially launched with 50 games last year. It now has nearly 100 in development throughout 18 countries. The firm previously raised $4.9 million from BRM Capital and Mitsui Ventures.
