Hansel Henson advises Talewind on seed investment round

We are delighted to have advised UK games development studio Talewind on its recent £2.5 million seed investment round.  Talewind intends to use the financing to drive its expansion in video game creation on the Roblox platform, including moving to the full release of its debut game, Breezy Bay.

The investment round was led by firstminute Capital and included a number of other venture capital funds and prominent angels in the digital gaming industry.

Roblox, which has grown to around 50 million daily active users, positions itself as a metaverse platform, and has become a challenger to Facebook.

Read more about the investment, and Talewind’s strategy for the coming year, in their own press release.

The Hansel Henson team was led by partners Tom Henson and Sarah Wells, with assistance from Joe Doughty.
