Being able to record and share gameplay, especially from a mobile device, is a very alluring concept to a large number of gamers. Sites like YouTube, Twitch, and Own3d offer users the ability to stream their gameplay sessions, which can be seen by thousands of game enthusiasts around the world. The ability to record and share gameplay has been largely absent from the mobile space until very recently. Kamcord, a company that specializes in recording mobile gaming, has managed to bring new services to gamers that have been eager to record their gaming session on their favorite mobile devices.
Mobile gaming continues to dominate the game industry
Mobile gaming has become a major part of the game industry. The high penetration of mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets, has provided game and application developers with a promising opportunity to engage a huge number of consumers around the world. Streaming services have established a strong foothold with gamers, many of whom have shown intense interest and support for mobile gaming.
Kamcord received $1.5 million in funding
Kamcord has announced that it has raised a total of $1.5 million in seed funding that will help it further enhance its mobile gaming recording services. Earlier this year, Kamcord introduced its mobile game recording SDK to developers, which was well received. Backed by new funding, the company is keen to continue developing innovative services and platforms for those interested in recording their mobile gaming experiences.
Funding may help Kamcord move into Android platform
The funding that Kamcord received comes from Google Ventures, Tencent, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and Andreessen Horowitz. The money may help Kamcord tackle the Android platform, which it has avoided thus far. Kamcord is comprised of a small team, which has limited the company’s focus on the iOS platform. Kamcord has interest in entering the Android space in the future in order to provide better services to a wider range of gamers.
