Moonrise Fund reveals the first three game studios that it supports

Virtuoso Neomedia, Future Club and Perfect Garbage will all receive support from the fund

In January, Glitch founder Evva Karr announced the Moonrise Fund – a new early-stage equity fund that would back people, not projects. Today, moonrise revealed the three studies it will back up with its foundation and exhibit a diverse and exciting group of talents who get a boost.

First out is Virtuoso Neomedia, a studio that has three different projects underway, all in different genres. The fraternal couple leading it are working on futuristic sports betting Raddminton, as well as Auto Killer and Zodiac XX.

You might recognize Future Club as the co-op studio made up of former Lab Zero employees. The team is still working on the development of Skullgirls, as well as a secret unannounced project. In an interview with IGN about the Moonrise Fund, Future Club CEO Francesca Esquenazi teases that it is an original IP that is narratively focused.

Perfect Garbage, meanwhile, is the studio behind Love the Shore it is also developing an unannounced genre mash-up that will center the perspectives of colored and LGBTQ + individuals.

IGN interviewed the study leaders as well as Karr, and the most important takeaway I had was that Moonrise seeks to do what it originally intended: to support people, not projects. While these studies already had games under development, all three were able to increase their ambitions in some way thanks to the funding and support.

All three studios have very, very interesting projects on display. And it’s nice to think that this support will let them not only make it all happen, but in a way that’s better for themselves as well. You can find the entire interview with Moonrise and co. here.
