Flying Sheep Studios said its Star Life title, a social massively multiplayer online (MMO) game targeted at the metaverse, has raised $1.2 million in funding from the German government.
Flying Sheep Studios said it is “excited to bring Star Life to players worldwide and is looking forward to being a part of the growing metaverse.”
“We are grateful to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action for their support and trust in our project. This funding demonstrates the federal budget for video games working as intended, fostering the development of cutting-edge technical know-how ‘made in Germany’ and creating and securing jobs,” said Thomas Rössig, managing director of Flying Sheep Studios, in a statement.
Since the company’s founding in 2014 in Cologne, Germany, Flying Sheep Studios has delivered over 200 games on time, quality and budget to satisfied clients, often working with brands such as Lego, Barbie and DreamWorks.
