Row Sham Bow, a new game development studio founded by gaming industry veterans and focused on creating games for social networks and direct-to-consumer platforms, has raised $3 million in funding from early-stage VC firm Intersouth Partners.
John Glushik of Intersouth Partners will join the company’s board of directors.
Founded earlier this year by president & CEO Philip Holt (former VP and GM of EA Tiburon) and CTO Nick Gonzalez (former Chief Software Architect at EA Tiburon and former CTO of video game technology company Massive), Row Sham Bow is based in Orlando, Florida.
EA Sports Madden 12 Creative Director Ian Cummings and CTO Richard Wifall have also joined Row Sham Bow in similar roles, we’ve gathered.
Also involved are Christopher Staymates, former software engineer at Livewire and EA Tiburon, and Jeremy Paulding, former Technical Director at Electronic Arts.
