Supercell and Small Giant Games founders invest in the China publisher MyGamez

HELSINKI, 13 December 2023 - MyGamez Ltd., the Finnish-Chinese mobile game publishers specialised in the China market, today announced the closing of a new funding round.

The 1.5 million euros private financing round was joined by industry heavyweights including Supercell co-founder Mikko Kodisoja, Small Giant Games co-founder Timo Soininen, Reworks co-founder Ilkka Teppo and former Riot China head of operations Daniel Wang.

“MyGamez has developed a completely new, fully transparent and hassle-free way for leading global publishers to access the world’s largest gaming market. With their strong traction, we believe MyGamez is quickly becoming a de facto platform for top global players to build their growth in China”, says Timo Soininen,

the former CEO and co-founder of Small Giant Games, the studio behind the puzzle RPG phenomenon Empires & Puzzles.

Soininen, who is joining the MyGamez board, was at the helm when Small Giant Games signed publishing deal with MyGamez but has since left the company after the acquisition of Zynga by T2 Interactive. He is now focusing on investing in startups with strong growth potential.

“We’re extremely excited to have these game industry superstars in our corner. I have tremendous respect for what each of them have built in their career and feel lucky to have their support in taking MyGamez to the next level”, says MyGamez co-founder and CEO Mikael Leinonen.

“After several rocky years, the China game industry regulatory environment has now stabilized and the market is growing again. With our upcoming launches of several major titles, such as Empires & Puzzles, future growth prospects are looking very good for us.”

MyGamez was established in 2013 with the mission to open the Chinese game market for Western developers. After the major regulatory changes in the market during 2016-2020, the company pivoted to provide China co-publishing service to the top global publishers and its customers now include the likes of Playrix, Zynga studios Small Giant Games and Gram Games, Fingersoft and Nexters, among others.
