Lightheart Entertainment raises $1.4 million for ‘hyper core’ mobile gaming

Lightheart Entertainment has raised $1.4 million in seed funding for what it calls “hyper core” mobile games, which it says are deep enough to entertain hardcore gamers while still having accessible features.
Galaxy Interactive, using the Galaxy EOS VC Fund, led the investment round. The money will be used to grow the company’s first game, Mr. Autofire, and execute on its product strategy.
The Helsinki-based Lightheart Entertainment started in 2019, with the investment initially led by Sisu Game Ventures and game industry angel investors. Conceived with a vision of building games that are deep enough to turn into hobbies but approachable enough to have a wide audience, the company shipped Mr. Autofire after three months of development in late 2019. Similar games go by the moniker midcore, but Lightheart calls them “hyper core.”

Encouraged by the strength of the game’s early metrics, the team plans to grow Mr. Autofire and explore the emerging mobile gaming space with more products.
Lightheart Entertainment CEO Kalle Kaivola said in a statement that the company tries to minimize the time it takes to learn something from the key source: the market. That requires a culture of enabling powerful decision-making within teams and making sure every employee can bring their skills to bear, Kaviola said. He said that the first talks with Galaxy Interactive showed it understood the dynamics of modern game development, where data meets craftsmanship.
