Neptune (representatives Chung Wook and Tae-woong Yoo) announced on the 29th that they have invested 1 billion won in console-based game developer Grumpi (CEO Shin Sung-gul) to strengthen their business competitiveness. The method is through the acquisition of a non-guaranteed private conversion bond.
Founded in April 2017, Grumpi is providing PlayStation 4 game ‘Dog Fighter-World War 2 (Dog Fighter)’. The game is a flight battle royale that controls the fighters that existed in the background of World War II and covers the last winner. The game developed with Unreal Engine 4 records about 800,000 cumulative downloads.
Grempi is currently developing a game DISORDER, which emphasizes action and character based on PlayStation 5. In addition, it is considered to have a global service experience and Unreal engine implementation know-how of more than two years. Then, Shin Sung-gul has been developing in various projects for 15 years, starting with Sid Nine’s ‘Check’ project.
Neptune CEO Tae-woong Yoo said, The console game, which accounts for more than 30% of the global game market, has a variety of business models beyond package sales as the platform boundary is broken. I will do it.
